Dear Everett649,Sounds like to me you have an issue with the motor, having said this, it could be due to the timer/ programmer. Firstly, if it was me, remove the metal panels that give you access to the motor, and then disconnect the wiring for the motor, and remember which way they go (I take digital pictures first of where the wires are). Then remove the brushes and replace them if they are worn. . . or replace them anyway.If this doesnt fix it, then the problem is likely to be manifested in the programmer/ timer, and this is where costs start to increase.

I hope this is the fixya for you, but in the meantime, please get hold of me on here if you feel like you have further questions or have comments.

Yours sincerely

Ouszen

I cannot find your mothers IWL16 model, but I have found various similar machines that are the same phase as your GWL11 machine, the electronics in there although different are compatible, you can swap the drain pumps, there almost universal, avoid the drive shaft machine, fix the other one If you want further help, post a photo of both pcb's (the electronics) After swapping your machine will stil require programming which is simple enough

Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer won't drain


Could be something in the pump. The pump is on the bottom of the tub.
It has a locking tab which you release and then twist the pump a hair and it will fall out. Warning: Have rags ready! I have the original GWL service manual and the GWL 11 supplimental manual. Let me know if you want them.

During the rinse cycle, our GWL 11 Fisher & Paykel


The problem is in the pump, so it will not pump out, you will need to find another way to empty it, removing the agitator will make the job easier.
When you get the water out the pump can be accessed from underneath, it turns anticlockwise to remove it,.
I would buy a new pump as it is most likely that is all that is wrong with it.
