Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.

My fisher and faykel washer model wa37t26gw2 does not fill, and will not drain. diagnostic says plugged drain hose, but it is clear from pump to diverter

Your question does not make sense. You say it does not fill but then you say it will agitate. How can it agitate if no water has filled? Does it beep and give an error code/ If so what is the error?

Fisher and Paykel EcoSmart GWL15 won't drain at the end of it's cycle. I put it in diagnostic mode and the got it to drain that way. I ran another cycle and it wouldn't drain on it's own again. Put it back...

Hello Robert. If you have heard any kind of squeaking or squealing or rattling while the pump was running, replace the pump. You mention a humming noise. Also a sign to replace the pump. When FP pumps fail, they will not spin at the correct speed and that is why when you run it in diag mode you can pump out the water as it runs until you stop it, but will not drain in a normal cycle. Be VERY careful when you replace the pump. Make sure you get no water in the new pump windings when replacing the pump or you will WILL take out the machine controller. Pump p/n is 479595

It is your motor controller board faulty.
Check the copper tracks for corrosion.

Fisher & Paykel GW611 Excellence does not pump water out. All lights are on and when it is suppose to pump, you can hear the noise, but no water coming out of the hose!

It sounds like the drain pump or the diverter valve is restricted. Check to make sure that the drain hose is clear then disconnect power and lay the machine's front on a padded surface to access the drain pump and the diverter valve at the bottom of the tub. Remove the pump's inlet and outlet hoses then check and clear from any debris that may prevent water from draining out. Check the impeller for any damage or restriction.

Check the diverter valve for the same condition as the pump described above. T
he diverter valve is where the drain pump and the recirculation pump inlet hoses are attached from. Make sure the valve is in the drain position while the drain pump is working. Replace the drain pump and/or the diverter valve if deemed necessary.

Hi just read your posting.Now GW509 is a FISHER@PAYKEL machine.Is this correct?If this is correct then check the power outlet for power with a small appliance.If you 100% have power to the machine then the 2 faults that make this machine not power up are,Your pump is open circuit,or your control module is faulty.Please confirm the make of your machine and I will guide you on how to test the pump to isolate the fault.Looking forward to your reply.
