GWL11 US Product code 96151-B.The pump went out a couple of day ago and took out the control board. About four years ago I bought a donor machine from Craigslist for 20 bucks... it had bad bearings, But everything else was fine. I transferred the control board and the pump over to my machine. I want to add a inline fuse to the pump to prevent this from happening again. Other than the ground wire I have a brown and white wire that goes to the pump. What wire do I add the fuse to?Thanks
Reading the comments, who woulda thunk so many problems from an electronic machine that on the face of it is brilliant. But thanks for your insightful take on the problem of a dead controller module for the GW609 - my son's one started doing something funny and in a fit of impatience he started pushing buttons in a hurry and next thing the machine went dead. I might just try your repair. Thank you again.
Wow that's fantastic! The 1.6A fuse blown, the middle Mosfet and its driver blown, and the 100 ohm resistor kaput. Simple! Thank you!
Hi i have a fisher and paykel smart drive . My prob is it fills great washes then drains doesnt go to spin to get soap off . Then just fills again washes drains and wants to fill again before final spin ?? I have to advance it manually why ? It was fine before . Worked like fill rinse spin rinse then final spin . Now its annoying me . Its a 8 k agitator model . With eco ect . Before problem starting happening . Its was trying to do the spin rinse but couldnt get to do the stop spin and do the final rinse so i interupted it as it tryed and tryed please help ? Thanks syd aus.
Hi i am staying at a friends house and there washing fisher and paykel washing machine has stopped spinning it fills with water and then to amber lights on either end peep at me.hope someone can help
My Fisher & Payakel smart drive machine keeps filling with water when wash cycle is selected and will not stop. Any suggestions?ThanksEd
Help! Our 10 year old machine just died. We replaced the control module, pump, and the diverter. It now is filling and draining at the same time!
My GW10 is Back On The JobMy machine was very dead, the Out OfBalance switch failed, and an out of balance load caused the temperature sensorgrommet to come loose, water splashed on the board and shorted things out. Bothfuses blown, 6.3 & 1.6 Amp, several power MOSFETS, a low power MOSFET wereshorted, and one 31j diode and one 100 ohm resistor open. I installed inline20MM fuse holders. I soldered in a 100 ohm resistor in lieu of the SMD. TheFCD4N60 were easy to find but the BUK98180 were not, I found some at ArrowElectronics. I removed two good 31J diodes, tested them and found that theywere just regular diodes with high reverse voltage, Vr. A test run revealed that the watertemp sensor grommet failed and popped out allowing water to spray around. Iinstalled a new sensor with new grommet, the grommet is not available alone.Having the information from thisarticle was very helpful and saved me a lot of money, Thanks.

I have a GWL10 washer that won't power up. When I hold the power button down, three lights come on - the second (Amber color) and third lights ( green color)from the left (long wash) and the fifth light from the left (green - short wash) briefly with a beep and then go out. Any suggestions ? In 2013 I replaced the display module but I hope I don't need to shell out $180 again !
Washer has gravely particles when I wash clothes. Cleaned the drum and the agitator. Any suggestions?
My mom's drain was clogged by a dime. The repair man told her it was the most common problem they run into.
i have a fisher paykel that wont drain. its stops at rinse and no draining.. replaced pump and cleaned the lines and still nothing. anyone have any ideas
we have a Fisher Paykel AquaSmart washer, WL37T26KW2, that is continually going out of balance. We've taken it apart and cleaned it like the troubleshooting said but are still having trouble. Any suggestions on fixing this without calling a repairman?? Thanks
Question? You mentioned the water pump was making bearing noises. Interesting to me is this to do with the control panel or just hot and cold valve? Maybe i'm not making sense here. My moms washer is over 10 years old. She's called the company. Talked to Australia.It needs bearings, suspension rods too, plus the hot and cold valves need replaced. Plus the cosmetics of a new agitator and that plastic top under the lid, those are easy though.Now thats just parts. If you buy them yourself. Plus $150 per hour to have a repairman out and yes they charge more if you order your own parts. I keep telling her for a few dollars more..buy new. It's either $400 to fix or 799 to buy new, and they still make one model that works the same not a no water eco washer, i tried selling that and like to never heard the end of it. Okay mama, you want water. Get it. Anyway, what's your take? Worth the trouble of fixing or shell out for new? Thanks.
Where can I get a fuse for my washer control board478089USP? GWL15 , Fisher & PlaykelFuse for Washers & Dryers OEM 479598. The company has sent me the larger fuse twice which I think belongs on the drain pump.
