Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer
I was doing some routine cleaning maintenance on the unit yesterday. I removed the top console area with all of the buttons/electronics. As I removed it, I fumbled it a bit. And dropped it. It didn't hit the ground. Just fell against the wall. After i put the unit back together, I plugged it back in. When I plugged it back, in it did about 7-8 fast beeps and almost all of the indicator lights are on solid except for Cold, Low, 3hr, lid locked, fast, Auto, regular, and a few of the wash progress lights. I can't power on/off the machine. If I hit some of the buttons, it will fast beep like it does when I plug it in. Did I ruin the motherboard? I don't see any loose connections.... Any ideas?? Thank you.

the water comes through 2 vavle 1 for washing and the other for rinsing more than likely that the rinse valve is down it will need replacing thats the more common fault for washers not rinsing

The problem is definitely in the lid switch. Your machine has a reed switch which is located under the hob on the right side of the tub. There is a magnet built into the lid which activates the reed switch when the lid is closed. You will need to replace the reed switch and harness.

I've had my washer for about 8 years. I experienced the same problem - pump stopped draining the machine. I called F&P and "Patrick" told me that I need to 1) unplug the machine, 2) tilt up the front of the machine, 3) spin the pump (plastic blades) until they turn freely (usually counter clockwise) but I turn it both ways till it turns freely, 4) plug the machine back in and press the buttons to get it back where it was - this has worked every time to get the machine going again. I do a lot of "dog laundry" and I'm sure the rugs/dog hair cause the problem. Hope this helps!

The washer is detecting error while it enters wash cycle. You can try and enter the diagnostic mode & check if it resolves the issue. If it doesn't then you would need check for the fault codes.
To enter Diagnostic Mode turn the power on at the power point and off at the console. Press and hold the WASH TEMPERATURE DOWN then press the POWER button. Smartdrive will give 2 short beeps. Phase 1 & 2 Only press ADVANCE button once. From Diagnostic mode press the SPIN buttons until the HOLD and SLOW SPIN LEDs are on, (Diagnostic mode level 3). The WASH PROGRESS LEDs will now display the fault code.
Hope this helps... Please post back if you need further assistance.
