Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer
Only after using the heavy duty setting to wash my husbands levis I see water comming from under the washer. I have not noticed water from any other cycle. The hoses and connections are all ok, the drain is ok, non of the hoses or water pipes are damp, the water is appearantly comming from inside the washer. The washer is setting on a solid level floor, the tub appears free to move, all springs wires etc appear connected. I'm at a loss as to why the water. The only conclusion I have reached is the jeans are heavy enough to splash excess ammounts of water some of which splashes over the tub. Do I need a drip pan and ancilliary drain to solve the problem? Please help.
Could be splash.
If you tip washer back and look under bottom, do you see water dripping in area of black motor--even small drip? if yes, look at my post on "eco smart won't drain, smells hot".
Mine started with a little water leaking. After a few loads of small leaks, it wouldn't spin out at all--would shut itself down and then I smelled hot electric motor. You need to remove white plastic housing/black motor and replace this unit. see my issue on how to remove--it's easy to do.

Hmm...I'm going to say that your idea was right. It is probably just splashing around in there. Now there are several options you can take. 1) Like you said a drip pan would work if it doesn't bother you too much. I imagine there is not very much clearance under the washer though, so you would need something with a really low profile. 2) If the automatic setting does not get the dirt out, skip this one. But it would still be helpful to know if it splashes as much with the automatic setting. 3) Call the customer service number on the machine. If they know about the problem, you could probably ask for a fix of some kind. And if it is still under warranty, you might be able to get a brand new one anyway, assuming they deem it as a problem or defect. Good luck, let me know how it goes.

Re; water under washer.
The ammount of water is from 1/4 to 1 cup after an individual load. It only became noticable reciently, after the last 3 or 4 heavy loads, using the manual setting on next to the top level. There is an automatic function, but due to the dirt and grit in the jeans I use manual.
