Fisher Paykel Machine Size

3 posts in this topic

In the course of replacing things to repair a problem, I am replacing the main controller board. I know that I need to set the machine size for it to function. I cannot figure out what the proper size should be. I have a "standard" GWL10. Is the size stamped somewhere?

I'm fairly sure a GWL10 is a 7.5KG washer.  In NZ you press and hold wash temp up button and then press power and release both, it should beep 3 or 4  times, you then press the spin speed up button once, which lights up the bottom spin light, then press power to store. I am unsure if your washers are the same but hopefully it helps.
