Tip & How-To about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer
A repairman examined my washer and told me I needed a new drain pump. The washer wouldn't drain the water out after filling. I suggested he check the drain because I had recently washed a rug and suspected the drain as clogged with lint. He took out the drain pump and diagnosed that I needed a new pump. After he left, I watched a youtube video on this problem. They man in the video carefully showed how to remove the drain pump. I then removed the drain pump myself and found an inch size ball of lint that was clogging the drain pump up inside. I removed the lint and reinstalled the same pump and the washer has worked fine ever since. I learned this after an expensive service call fee and he wanted to charge me another $150+ for new drain pump and installation.
