A reply from Bob:

 The situation you speak of may not necessarily be a problem. You may not be aware of it, but Fisher Paykel is a "HIGH EFFICIENCY" machine, and one of the ways it achieves this is to conduct virtually all wash cycles at about 56 or 58 degrees. The Only time you will actually feel HOT water entering the machine is during the pre wash cycle when only a small amt of water enters. At the conc. of the pre wash cycle the machine then proceeds to fill to a normal looking level but the water will be cooler that what you would expect had you selected HOT.
It is possible to bypass the factory settings to get a tub full of HOT water should you desire it. You will need to consult the user manual to do that tho.
Ive had some peole return the machine bacause of this feature. They want HOT for Whites, etc.....

Paul, I repair F&P washers "down under - that would be Australia" > I suspect that there is a problem with the Motor Control Board in your washer. What Model do you have?
There is a little sticker on the rear panel with a Model#
such as MW 078 etc.. Regards . John P/

The Hot & Cold selectors, believe it or not are for setting the temp of the pre wash water temp. (The first part that just fills about an inch and then re circulates for 5 min...)
If there is no HOT at all there is a problem. You need to get it into diagnostics (re: the sheet inside the console) and see if the hot water valve will actuate when its called for. If it does, the problem is probably going to reside inside the expensive motor control module

Most of the people I talk to with the f&p washer love it more than any other washer they have ever had. the most common problem i run into with these and front load washers is that people cant get out of the mind set of "if i add more soap the clothes will get cleaner". the wash action is so much stronger on your washer and on front loads that you have to use a detergent labeld as h.e. or high efficiency. also your washer uses less water so you will need to use far less soap. suds are bad mmmkay.

"It is possible to bypass the factory settings to get a tub full of HOT water should you desire it."

"The answer to this is apparently to do a "cleaning" cycle as described in the manual:"

Thanks for the help from both of you, and particularly to Scott for an awesome site!

I'd like to permanently change my Heavy Duty, or "Favorite" cycle to wash and rinse in hot only water.  Is there a way to program that in?  BTW, it's a model GWL10 from July 2001.

TIA, Ornery

Dear Mr Lawrence

Unfortunately, what you are looking for is not possible.

You are able to do a traditional hot fill and not use the eco active wash,
but you have to use the permanent press, which is a gentler agitation and a
slow spin speed.

The only way to do what you want is to select permanent press hot, let the
machine fill up and then pause it.  Once the machine is paused, turn the
power off and re-start it.  Then select heavy duty and fast spin speed and
press start.

Kind Regards

Have you tried the diagnostic procedure on the sheet of paper inside the top control panel.  You can manually operate the valves to see if they are working properly.
