Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Okay, my fisher and paykel gwl15 is almost brand new. i moved it into my new house tonight. I tried washing my laundry and it starts to fill but then stops at the light that says "wash" and wont agitate or anything. It starts beeping and either just flashes the "cold" light or both the "hot" and "cold" light at the same time. I can skip it forward to rinse and spin and that seems to work but just not washing. Also after messing with it for a while, I noticed that anytime it is on the "cold' temp it starts acting up (fills very very slowly, in fact it kind of trickles, and then will stop and begin the beeping then too) when I run it on hot the water comes in fine, but still gets to the "wash"part and will stop and start beeping and wont progress any further through any wash cycle, only the rinse and spin. Any ideas? Ive tried reprogramming the washer, ran lighter loads, used all different wash settings... nothing is working. It worked perfectly fine at my old house and now Im having all these problems with it.

Sounds like you have low water pressure or a blocked hose inlet screen. take the hoses off and check to see if there is any debris in the screen on the washer hose connection. Make sure the hoses are not kinked and the valves are turned up all the way. Also check to see if you have those special flood proof hoses with the automatic water shut offs. I have had those not work properly many times.

Fisher paykel gwl15 won't pump out water


My F & P Model GWL15 did the same thing. I purchased a new pump but that was not the problem. Tip the machine back and look under. There is a valve diverter that I removed and checked. There was a dime and lots of lint stuck in the valve so it wouldn't move back and forth anymore. I downloaded a parts manual, page 10 and item # 23 is the valve diverter. Once I unclogged it and put it back together, it worked great. I noticed it works better than it has for a long time. I'm a 60 yr old woman so anyone can do this. Good luck.

Fisher and Paykel washing machine will not stop washing. It does not advance between the cycles. It fills, then washes, then drains, and then starts all over again. It doesnt move beyond the wash cycle...


Fisher & Paykel GW608U Top loader washing mashine. On power up it will pass the self test, but then it goes to error (single beep every second and lights: green 3rd, 4th green and 7th orange from left are on). Could you advise on the problem please or supply error message codes table. Greatly appreciate your help and looking forward hearing from you

Fisher paykel gwl15 overfills and will not advance


Is it filling so it is flooding your floor? Could be that too many suds are in the pressure switch tube ( are you using "he" soap? ) or the pressure switch is not registering the water level. Note the lights illuminated when it beeps and call F/P.

Fisher and Paykel Washer Leaking


For those with water on floor after wash, check my post on "eco smart won't drain, smells hot". It could be something clogging drainage area at very bottom of the tub. I couldn't see the sock that was stuck in my FP's drain when I looked from the top between the white outer tub and the wash tub--everything looked fine. Then I removed the black motor/white plastic housing piece--Tip back washer and you should see this black electric motor/white housing on bottom. see my post for how to remove and check for plugged drain. it's really pretty easy.

don't know about outer tub holes, but glad i don't have that problem.

i hate my fisher paykel washer/dryer. i can't wait to sell this house--i will leave them here and get a new front load Duette for my next house!
