Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
this is a very common issue with these machines
what the problem is most of the time is that the water inlet valve that the hoses connect to has done 1 of 3 things
this valve will clog up with deposits and need to be cleaned out so check that first see if you can see inside of it and check the screen on the hose itself to ensure that it is clean.
If it is then ensure that you do indeed have adequate water pressure coming out of both of the hoses and make sure they are straight if so than the only thing that can be wrong is the water inlet valve itself
This is because this valve has a solenoid for the hot and one solenoid for the cold and when the valve starts to fail the valve will partially shut thus resulting in the water not getting in the machine very quickly ok
If you feel like you can do the repairs if needed please post me a comment and i can get you the proper repair procedures for this machine i will need the make and model number ok?
Hope all of this has helped
Best regards Mike

Gw11 stops mid cycle and beeps and lights 2 and 7 are lit up anybody know what the error code is


Is it model GWL11? There is no model GW11. On most other models that code indicates there is a fault in the water pressure transducer which measures the water level. Unfortunately the motor controller module needs to be replaced.

Fisher paykel ecosmart washer won't fill or complete cycle


It can't get enough water so it flashers these lights
to tell you to turn your water on,
Your water valves are not fully opening to let enough water in.
You will need new water valves.

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.

Received washing machine with no instructions,favourite program show preference for warm water wash,when I go to use cold wash it fills very slowly and then beeps show warm water light flashing I need to...


You MAY have a faulty cold valve (Not unusual) Or low water pressure. If the machine will fill ok on 'hot' but has a problem on 'cold' then you probably have a faulty 'cold' valve.
Do not change wires to 'hot' valve, as there is a difference..
Good luck....Nomess

Starts and stops


A failed inlet valve is not uncommon in F&P machines. The hot valve is different to the cold one, so don't exchange them. Not a big job for a tech to do in-laundry. Good luck....Nomess

Fisher and Paykel GW11 not staying hot


WHEN I CALLED FISHER AND PAYKEL PARTS CENTER WITH THE SAME PROBLEM . THIS IS THE REPY I RECEIVED. "THE HOT WATER FILLS IN FOR A SHORT TIME, THEN THE DIRVERTER RECIRCULATES FOR A FEW MORE MINUTES, THEN FILLS THE REMAINING WATER LEVEL YOU HAVE SELECTED WITH COLD WATER. THE REASON BEING: (GET THIS) FISHER PAYKEL SAYS THAT THE AMOUNT OF HOT WATER AT THE BEGINING OF THE
CYCLE IS SUFFICIENT TO DISOLVE THE DETERGENT. AFTER THE DEVERTER CYCLE (THE SIDE RINSE AS YOU CALLED IT) THE REMAINING WILL BE COLD WATER FILL".
HE ALSO STATED MANY PEOPLE CALL HIM ON THIS AND HE SAID IN THE MANUAL IT IS EXPLAINED THAT THIS IS THE WAY THE MACHINE WORKS. SO MUCH FOR ECOSMART

The machine stops at wash cycle every minute or so


Firstly, the model 708 is way more than 9 years old. More like 18 - 19 years old. There is 2 types of errors on a smartdrive. One is signalled by a single beep every second & the top row of lights will change. The 2nd is a rippling musical sound (like when you turn the power on at the wall) and some lights will be blinking. You need to tell us what sound it is and which lights are blinking or which of the top row lights are on (exactly, count from the right to left and which number is on & which is off) There is no such thing as a reset to do. Once I know the fault I can advise you what to do about it.
