20 Most Recent Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer Questions & Answers

Each light has a specific number, so to work out the error code we need to know which side you are counting from i.e. left to right or right to left. Makes a huge difference.

If you cannot see the water leaking from the inlet valves, check the seal just above the water pump located directly under the drum. I am in the midst of awaiting parts to fix this very thing on my FP GWL11. This leak is dripping water directly onto the motor, causing it to trip the circuit breaker during drain/spin cycles.

Note... I have also had to have the inlet valve assembly replaced as well as it was not opening to allow cold water to mix with the hot.

Hope this helps.

It beeps to tell you there is an error. While it is beeping & before pressing any buttons, read the error code & write it down. The error code is the lights along the top row. Count from left to right and make a note of exactly which lights are on and which are off. There are 8 lights, you need to say exactly which number light is on. Post the result back here and someone will tell you what that error code means.

I had the same problem.... It would stop on the rinse cycle and beep.  Check to make sure you can hear the water pump running or if you can just hear an electrical hum and then it quits, it may be a problem with the water pump.The water pump can be accessed by removing the tub, reach down the center of the agitator and remove plastic bolt, remove the stailess steel tub and then remove the plastic oval shaped cover at the bottom of the main tub to access the pump impellor.  Make sure the impellor turns freely, if it does not you may have a problem with the pump motor.  We had a gold chain go missing and it showed up wrapped around the pump shaft causing it to bind at times.  It took me two tries to fix it but now it runs 100%.

The fuse is built onto the control board. It is not designed to be replaced. My 3 year old machine lost the water pump and blew the fuse. About $375 to fix. I am buying the new pump and will attempt to replace the fuse on the board. I hope there are no other bad components.

under the top of the machine on the right there is a reed switch which is actic=vated by a magnet in the lid remove the two bungs and screws so you can lift the top up a bit and you will see it there one screw to remove it if its corroded or swollen its faulty either repace it or as a easy fix cut both wires off it and join them together and tape up, this should do it

its really important the R.P.S you replaced is correctly fitted so double check it,also the connecting block if corroded in anyway will cause the faulty its easy to see the bluey color of corrosion, i have struck faulty new sensors beforebut not all thst common if you are really sure all that is 100% then it can only be the wiring loom
