#296777 Fisher Paykel Washer GWL11 US Won't Drain

Posted by J5 on 20 June 2014 - 05:45 PM

ok you dont need ito remove the basket


water is getting through the pump


turn the machine on at the wall and turn the machine on but dont start anything


leave it for 5 mins


tilt the machine back against the wall so you can access the divertor valve


pull the plug from the wall and touch the divertor with your finger and see if it is warm/hot


if it is then you need a new controller


if it isnt then you need to pull the pipework off and see if there is a blockage after the diverter out to the drain hose


or the lever on the divertor is broken and not switching across

#295406 Windows 8: Is it Great?

Posted by J5 on 03 June 2014 - 11:45 PM

the word from the tech guys down here is if you are using 7 then going to 8 isnt much advantage


and IMHO if its not broke and doing what you want then why change ?

#292286 Fisher Paykel DD605I Top drawer not finishing cycle.

Posted by J5 on 29 April 2014 - 10:36 PM

not finishing the cycle could mean anything


early 605's had issues with heater plates burning out


if it doesnt heat it will come up with an f4 fault and still have water inside


if it faults meaning red light on the front you then look inside at the cycle lights and see which ones

are on to determine the fault code


in diagnostics you can check the heater plate for heat , i get to the correct diagnostic and then operater the heater

while putting hand on the heater plate to check , beware it gets hot fast and dont leave it on too long or you can pop the

thermal fuse on the plate


an easy check then if you have no heat is to swap controller from top to bottom and try again , you can then confirm

controller or heater , save time and money 


i usually get 9/10 heater and 1/10 controller

#289243 Fisher Paykel GWL15 error code. Bad control panel?

Posted by J5 on 27 March 2014 - 01:54 PM

your valve may have been faulty , you need to check the resistance , but if you have changed the valves and

still have the issue then yes the board needs replacement


they sometimes do just fail

#288476 Fisher & Paykel DD605 - high pitched whining noise

Posted by J5 on 19 March 2014 - 03:29 AM

remove the rotor and check for any debris


check the rotor for delamination or seperation of the rotor


check the bottom one as well

check the 3 locating legs sometimes they bend in and run and make noise


if it looks ok put it in the bottom and test as they sometime will be noisy in 1 drawer and not the other


part is 524285p

#287630 Fisher Paykel Parts?

Posted by J5 on 13 March 2014 - 12:22 AM


Typical truck stock parts can consist of rotors for the dishdrawer and drain pumps for the washers.


common things to use


dd603 mains filter board



i used to use a lot of out of balance switches but not so many now and would prob just source a generic switch anyway


inlet valves 12 and 24 volt

12 volt ran up to about 1998 so you might not see many


the later to current models use a 2in1 and about 2006 modes are failing a bit now


rps is fairly common but havent done many of late


drain pumps and suspension rods , have been doing a lot of 2008/9 aquasmart suspension kits recently for out of balance issues

#285451 F11 Error, regular customer at the time.

Posted by J5 on 21 February 2014 - 03:47 PM

Mike i agree with you on some points


im not sure of this particular product or what the the fault is


we do dryers that are mounted on the wall and customers are told to remove it before we come as its not something i can get on or off

the wall by myself and also due to property damage risk


if i go to a dishwasher that has been uninstalled then i fix it and the customer is responsible for the reinstall and the risk associated and this is noted on the job invoice


same applies with fridges mounted on a 6 inch step , if they need to come out them hey customer your job to get it out, when its out call me back , im not taking the fall on a damage claim


im sorry your use and care booklet states standard installations, if you wish to go outside the manufacture specs then you are responsible for any removal and reinstallation


but my last point is to gauge what the customer is like, if they are a pain in the arse then yes run as fast as you can ;)

#283439 FP GW11 Error 37 & Drain Pump Test

Posted by J5 on 04 February 2014 - 02:11 PM

cheap way use a couple of spade connectors


best way replace the harness as it will break the wire again in a year or 2
