Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer
I have lost all power to my F & P Smart drive machine. It stopped in the middle of a cycle. Any tips?
To Check a Capacitor First check to see if the capacitor is bulging or changed in physical shape of any kind this is signs of a bad capacitor also check for oil may be leaking from it. With the capacitor unpluged use an Ohm meter set on OHMs scale, Rx1 you can check the terminals and the needle will jump upward and instantly fall back to zero. Reverse the leads of the meter and check it again. You will notice the same jump of the meter, and again fall back to zero. This will likely mean the capacitor is good. This check is for a shorted capacitor only, not a measurement of its capacitance, but will let you know if you have a bad capacitor. let me know..

Dale, The pump is used as part of the power supply. If not connected the unit will appear dead. Check the pump resistance, should be 33 ohms. The pump has a thermal cut-out. If it's tripped, it should reset within 15 minutes. If it tripped, check for a blocked pump. Check for resistance from phase and nuetral to ground. This will identify if either the motor wiring harness or lid switch harness is shorting to the cabinet. Each water valve should ohm at 64ohms. If all this checks ok, then it's probably the motor controller. Catriver.
