Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer
The flashing of the cold(green) and hot(red) LEDs indicates a user fault which means no water is entering the machine. This could mean either the hot and cold water faucets are not turned on, no water in the water supply line, the inlet chamber thermistor is faulty,or one of the valves is not working. Make sure water is running in the water supply lines and the faucets are turned on.
Since the machine works on cold wash, the problem is either the hot water valve is not working or the inlet chamber thermistor is out of range. It is likely that the thermistor seal is leaking and/or the thermistor is shorted. The machine control 'thinks" the water is too hot and does not activate the water valve if the thermistor is shorted. Swap the hot and cold water valve wires and the fill hoses in order to check the hot water valve. Cold water should fill in when a cold wash is selected if the hot water valve is working and the thermistor is therefore shorted. Verify this by measuring the resistance of the thermistor which is normally 10,000 ohms at 77degrees Fahrenheit (25 degrees centigrade) and goes down as the temperature increases. Replace the thermistor if shorted or the hot water valve if cold water does not come in when a cold wash is selected and the valves wires and the fill hoses are swapped.
