Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer
Power is ok, wont turn on at all, is it worth repair?
Look at my issue "eco smart won't drain, smells hot". Mine is top load.
If you see puddle on floor and eventually won't run at all and smell electric burn motor, it could be same issue I had.
Unplug washer. Tip washer back. If you see water dripping through the black motor area, you need to remove the black motor and the white plastic unit above it. Look for a white plastic clip that is attached to bottom of washing machine. Push that clip with your finger and twist the whole plastic unit/black motor. It all comes off in one piece.
Look on side of this unit and you will see 120V or 240V. Mine is GWL10US and is older model. Was told by repairman that new units use 120V. That is what you need to order. It comes as one piece and you just twist it back on. I had done most of this. Repairman came and 5 seconds cost me $65.

I"m in the process of repairing my GWL10 right now. By the way, if you remove the little control console on the top (two philips screws), there should be a service supplement document inside with a number of useful diagnostic tips.
Mine appears to have a small leak spraying water from the inlet/mix valves that shorted out the motor controller. I can't complain, it has run like a top, or rather a jet engine (if you've ever seen the spin cycle), for 6 years now.
I found an invaluable resource here: http://fixitnow.com/wp/2004/10/30/appliance-repair-revelation-fisher-paykel-dc-drive-washing-machine/

if you are sure the power outlet is ok then it can only be the lead or the electronics in the machine, if it has no life at all it can be a fuse on the main module but you need tobe qualified to play with those parts and it is not something that you can just pull out as they are soldered in in most cases
