Fisher Paykel

16 posts in this topic

Have a call for a dead washer.  Never seen a Fisher PayKel in these parts.   The lid switch is locked.   Customer does not know where model number is located. Neither do I.   Tub is full of water & it does nothing.   Some insight in to this machine?     I will visit in morning.   Thank you

The bottom half of the machine is a ge. The top, like the controls and what not are fisher and paykel. Good luck!!!!!

May be a drain pump issue. May be a bad computer board or control panel. There is a tech sheet under the control panel. There is a way to reset the machine on the tech sheet.

The Fisher Paykel washer is not a GE. The Data tag is on the back of the control panel and on the rear about half way down. Always in two location on a F&P. Here's a few service summaries that may help.

It sounds like a bad drain pump, when the drain pump fails it shorts out the main control 50% of the time. The replacement board and pump both come with and inline fuse to wire in on the pump circuit at the board to protect the board from a pump failure.

The specific model number of the machine is relevant to service info.  There are electrical and parts differences between the various models --  GWL08 (Phase 4), GWL10 (Phase 5, has a 230v pump), GWL11 & IWL12 & IWL15 (Phase 6) & GWL15 & IWL16 and the other current "Phase 7" units.

 

Testing of the diverter valve is outlined only in the GWL10 service manual, but is applicable to all EcoSmart models that have the valve.

 

Lotta techs detest (maybe too strong a word) F&P but their washers are very easy to service, IMO.

 

As Spannerwrench advises, the model tag is on back of the console, and may be another lower down on rear of the cabinet ... and a dead machine is pretty much a bad controller board, probably zapped by a bad/leaking pump, although other components such as the diverter can also zap the board.

 

Access to the pump & motor is from beneath the machine, there are no panels to remove.  No tools necessary to pull the pump, it attaches via bayonet mount to a bracket.

 

The top raises up (two screws under the lid bumpers at the front corners, the lid pulls straight up off the hinges) for access to remove the basket & tub.

Make sure you get the Product Code off of the Data Tag, this will help to get more accurate information for the model, including the correct parts.

If you end up ordering from Sear get your 15% discount, (should be good till 7/7/13), use discount code: SPRING15

 

If for some reason that doesn't work or after the expiration date use code: PARTS anytime to get a 10% discount.

There's also FisherPaykelParts.net and FisherPaykelParts.com (which are not part of F&P parent company).  And eBay for what NIB items may be listed at any given time.

Fisher paykel parts.com is a good place. Your customer may not fix it. To put a board and a pump in can be costly. Thats probably your issue.

You can try Sears, although I'd rather get the parts directly from F&P.

Thanks Spannerwrench.   Sears did not have anything available.

Thanks for the discount Budget Appliance,  like I said, Sears drew a blank.

Thanks again my friends,  Parts are expensive.

 

 

 

Here is the kicker.   Had customer drain tub out by using a water hose to siphon.   Unit lit up & began to fill.  Switched to spin & nada nothing.  Laid unit back to wall, cleaned spider webs out of underneath, spun propeller both ways.  Unplugged leads to drain & diverter valve.  plugged back in, got meter out to check voltage.  Turned machine on while leaned back & wa la.  Pump kicked in & drained.   Set back up thru towels in (this is how I get my shop rags washed...While I test machines)  Unit worked without a hitch.

 

$100 please, total onsite time ... 45 minutes    Thanks everyone for the lesson on Fisher Paykel washer.   Not much to them.
