Fisher Paykel washer GWL11

8 posts in this topic

Our 3 1/2 year old washer has developed a drip. This is not onto the floor, but rather into the drum, and drips out of the same hose/outlet that fills the drum. Seems like it would be a simple problem of a leaky valve, but thought I'd check here before tearing the machine apart. The drip is getting progressively worse over the last 3 weeks.

I did call F&P and the nice australlian lady told me to call a repairman. I think not.

Help?

If any fill valve lets water into an appliance when it is off, sounds like something has it lodged open, not letting it close....I would replace the valve.

Coupla' things I should do:

first, ask where folks would suggest buying parts.

Second, mention that while I'm handy, I know nothing about appliances or how they work or how to fix them. I'm great at following instuctions and have manged to repair my dryer, microwave, stove (twice - two seperated problems) and dishwasher. Assume that I have no idea what you're talking about when you reply, and my "do-it-yourself" repair project will likely be successful.

Is it dripping hot or cold water into the tub? You can check if you have individual shutoff valves for each supply. On the GWL11 there are two separate valves. Only source for parts is F&P.

I'll have to check tonight, but I believe it's cold.

It is the cold water dripping. I called the appliance store we bought this at and he agreed with you guys' diagnosis of a bad shutoff valve. They carry them for $25 and have them in stock. Said it's an easy fix. Here goes nothin'...  :kewl:

I thought I should let you all know that the repair was about the easiest I've ever performed on any appliance. Thanks for the diagnosis...which now that I've seen the inside of the machine is the only diagnosis that could have been made. :D
