Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Gw11 fisher & Paykel

My machine is 5 years old and 3 times the machine has played up with the same issue. 2 green lights 3, 4 (short wash flash) and the end spin light red light flashes and beeps. The machine does not start, if I press the start/pause button the lid lock light comes on and beeps.
I have to turn it off at the wall, but if I turn it back on its constantly beeps.

In the past this has happened and the next day the machine has come good.
I called up a few appliance repairers but it cost $200 just to look at it and labour, not including the parts.....

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.
