Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

    No, found out the cold water valve is bad.

Our FnP GW611 is empty and continues to beep with 3 lights flashing - 2 x just left of short wash + spin light. Any ideas ?


Lights 3,4,8= 49
Lights 2,3,8 = 97 no such fault code.

49. (00110001) Cold Valve or Cold Valve & Hot Valve Faulty
The Motor Control Module has measured a voltage from the valve diagnostic circuit that
indicates the cold valve or both the cold and hot valve is faulty. The most likely cause is
that the valve harness has not been connected correctly or the valve(s) is open circuit.
Primary Source: Wiring.
Action: Check the valve harnesses are correctly fastened to the valves and
the motor control module or the pins are not bent backwards.
Secondary Source: Water Valves.
Action: Measure the resistance of the cold and hot valve coils.
Tertiary Source: Motor Control module.
Action: Replace the Motor Control module.

Model GWL11. The washer only fills with cold water even though it is at the Hot water setting


Hi just read your posting.Now can you check the inlet hoses are correctly positioned.So from the cold water tap the hose must go to the cold valve which has the letter C next to it and the hot has the letter H next to it.If you look behind the machine where the inlet hoses connect the identifying letters will be there.Please reply on how you got on and for further help.Looking forward to your reply.

Hi I have a Fisher & Paykel MW612 top load washing machine. It will start to fill normally on warm wash then the hot stops coming in and the cold fills intermittantly then the whole ting stops and...


Gary - LEDS 00110010 as you have not mentioned the last LED which will be red if on is 00110011

Ok - your code is 50 indictes a faulty hot water valve - question - have connected the hoses correctly - as per your descriptions - it should always be cold 1st then hot water- cold - then hot etc until it fills.

Pays to check this as the fault code is totally opposite to what your saying..

When going to wash with my GW11 it stops during the was cycle and the cold and hot water light blink and the machine beeps


Hi just read your posting.Now, when the hot and cold lights flash at the same time it means that you are not getting enough or no hot or cold water.Remove the cold and hot inlet hoses from the machine end and put the ends into a bucket.Now turn the taps on to see if you have water coming out the hot and cold hose and if the water pressure is adequate.Try a cold fill on the wash cycle and see how it goes.please reply and let me know if there is water coming out of the hoses at a good pressure and also what water temp do you select on the wash cycle.Looking forward to your reply.

Fills with water and then stops and beeps and won;t continue. The hot and cold water buttons are flashing. Waterr starts trickling in and it is slowly spinning but doesn't seem to agitate


Hi just read your posting.The 2 lights that are flashing means your machine has not detected any water level difference.1st turn off both hot and cold taps and 1st remove the cold inlet hose from the machine end,Put the end of the hose into a bucket and turn the tap on.You should get a good flow of water.If you do not get a good flow of water then remove the tap end of the hose and see if you are getting water out of the tap.Check the inlet filters on both ends of the hose to see if they are blocked.If they are blocked clean them with a brush.Check also the water valve end where the hose connected to the machine to see if this filter is blocked. Once you have water coming out of the hose and all the filters are clean refit the hose and repeat to the hot hose.Now select a cycle and push start.If the water flow is good then the machine will work properly.If you still get slow water even when you have good pressure coming out of the hoses then your water valves are faulty.Please reply on how you got on and for further advice.looking forward to your reply.

After initial start up on hot water , it reverts back to cold water only. The water valves work when tested in diagnostic mode.Fault reads Hot and Cold Water Valve Faulty.On hot water only it starts out...


It's most likely the water inlet valve solenoids. Be sure to unplug the machine. They can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a bad solenoid. Also check the small metal screens inside the openings on the water inlet valve. Make sure they are clear of rust or debris. I will attach a photo for reference. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Washer only fills with hot water


Probably a bad water inlet valve. To verify, you would have to check continuity at the valve.

F & P Smart Drive Model MW0I5K - BEEPING


If the washer is also filling slowly it's likely to be the hot or cold water solenoid (either one or both - not that an expensive a repair)
