Fisher paykel gwl10 won't drain...
Posted 17 May 2005 - 05:11 PM
I've spent a little more time troube shooting what I can. I tested both water valves, and see that incoming water enters the tub at the back of the washer (lid hinge area). I shut off both water valves to washer, tested to make sure no water flowed. Then again tested drain pump, and that action pumps water into the tub, but from the right side. Hope that narrows it down. Again, any help greatly appreciated.

Person didn't reply with what the actual conclusion was, but seems like he took the same approach to the repair. In my extremely limited knowledge of washers (6 hours of reading and research last night) the diverter valve certainly seems to make the most sense, plus somebody (ktsennya2) who actually knows what they're talking about reccommended it. I am going to start (and hopefully finish) with that. Any tips on replacing this part? All I know is that it is under the drum, so I'm assuming tipping washer on it's front will gain the needed access. Anything I should test first? Thanks in advance for any additional input. Also, thanks for providing the part number.

If you repaired it yourself, any pearls of wisdom? I'll be getting quotes from a repairman, but if the price is too high (probably will be), I'll be looking into doing it myself. Thanks to both pdanger and ktsenya for info.

I have had a local repairman come and try to fix this, but he doesn't know where to get parts for F&P. He said that he found that a "switch was stuck" and he was able to unstick it... perhaps this would be the Diverter Valve???? At any rate, he suggested trying to run a small load.... well, same problem happened.
I am willing to give it a try if I could get the part. I tried to look the part up on this website and I wasn't able to find Fisher & Paykal parts.
I am new to trying to fix my own appliances.... but with four of us in the house (hubby,myself and two boys in their early 20"s), and none of them know how to fix stuff.... I need your help please.....

Your problem description is sketchy. What specific problem are you having?
Help please, I am having the same problem.... I believe... however, it happens during the fill process rather than the rinse.

1. Have the machine plugged in and turn it off at the control panel.
2. Perss and hold the WASH TEMP DOWN the press the POWER button. The machine will give two short beeps.
3. Using the SPIN SPEED UP or the SPIN SPEED DOWN buttons you can get different information.
When you press the SPIN SPEED UP button until the HOLD and SLOW SPIN LED's are on, the WASH PROGRESS LED's will display the fault code. Interpret them using the tech sheet inside the control panel -- pray to pot-bellied, one-eyed, fish-smelly Buddha that you repairguy didn't "borrow" it.
Sounds like you you probably have a bad diverter valve.

Oh, I am saying many prayers to the pot belly.... oh any belly that will listen.

I will need to know where to get the Diverter Valve part.... but I will let you know when I return to my computer.
Thanks for all your help.

Actually, when I add up the LEDs I come up with a total of 93 and I don't see a Fault Code with the #.
Posted 18 June 2005 - 07:54 AM
Are you able to help me with the Fault Code number mentioned above. Also, please.... where do I get the parts.

At this point, what do you think that I should do? Can I schedule an appoint for a service call through you.... or get parts through you. I really don't know what to do.

I'm up in New London and I have all the service calls I can handle serving just New London and surrounding towns (Wilmot, Newbury, North Sutton, Sunapee, Springfield, and sometimes Grantham). While Concord would be a great market to serve if I lived closer to it, it's just too far to cost-justify it at this point. Especially considering that many repairs can require two trips.
I recommend either contacting the service dept of the place you bought it from, or going ahead and doing the repair yourself even if it means paying for the parts, warranty not withstanding.
