Question about Fisher and Paykel WA37T26G Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Fisher Paykel WA37T26G doesn't spin as fast as should in rince and spin cycle

Fisher Paykel model WA37T26G top load washer when it goes into the spin and rince cycle, the water sprays in and the washer stops for a moment, it then starts to rotate at a slow slow speed and then stops again, it starts to rotate again a lttle faster and makes a strange grinding noise and then starts to speed up. It never does reach the full rotational speed that it had in the past. I have tried to stop the machione and rebalance the load and also relevel the machine. No success.

    There are no flahing lights that might indicate a code. The machine continues to go through it's normal cycles as it seems, but doesn't get to full RPM.

Hi there
That fault is the pump blocked error (no change in water level).
i have a quick and easy way to solve this problem.

first turn the machine off then tilt the machine back and lean it on something(a chair or wall), look underneath, in the top right hand corner of the plastic outer boul you will see a small pump motor it has a fan on it spin this fan and if it is hard to turn that means there is somthing stuck in the drain pump keep turning the fan and try to free whatever is stuck in the pump, then try the machine on spin again all goin well the object in the pump should come out with the drain water(doing this will not harm the machine) if the object is still stuck you will need to get the water out of the machine (bailing or siphioning will work) and tilt the machine back again and take the wires off the pump and there should be a white tab on the boul holding the pump on pull this tab and twist the pump anticlockwise about a quarter turn(you will need a few towels or a boul or bucket to catch the water) and it should come off exposing the blockage.
Hope this solves your Problem.

Nick

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

Fisher-paykel washer fills on final spin cycle


Does your machine have a diverter valve,
If it does the valve is stuck in recirculate mode.
Lint has jammed it closed.

Washer won't empty and spin


You either have a blocked water pump or more likely a blocked diverter valve. Easy to fix if you are handy. Tip machine back on a 45 degree angle and let rest against the wall. It is a matter of disconnecting a coupe of clamps and twisting the pump counter clockwise.

The rinse and spin cycles never end


I have seen this often on another brand. Once it starts malfunctioning on the rince/spin cycle, the boars needs replacement.

I have one and they are right. Both the drum and the agitator turn so that the clothes are not beaten up.
Also the electronic motor control is fully variable speed. It will go as slow as! Dial up for wollens and it almost massages them. The cycle time is 1/3rd of a front loader.
