Fisher Paykel will not drain

Completed the wash cycle then stopped. The washer is stopping at the rinse stage, full of water. It is not sensing that it is still filled up with water and thus will not drain.

Is there a sensor that may be out?

    My Fisher & Paykel GWL11 washer also stopped after the wash cycle and won't spin or drain. My machine is only 4 years old and 4 months out of warranty.

I had the same problem. After cut the power off for at least 60 seconds and then back on, as the manual suggests, the problem remained. Therefore I started putting the clothes out and bailing the water out. Once the water was down about half way the pump started working. I suspect the sensor was "stuck". I cycled the washer without clothes and it worked fine. Still working after several loads of laundry. The water level sensor will probably need replacing sometime soon.

My Elba washing machine, when reaches the rinse cycle, water is very loud, never before, but it never stops adding water. Water is draining fine but water does not stop to cycle to rinse.


The water inlet solenoid valve is being held open. Take off the hose and look in the opening to see if you can find anything. Otherwise replace that solenoid valve.

Clogged pump stopped up drain. If the washer does not think all water was pumped out in 8 minutes then it shuts down. Slow drain is my first inclination.

Stops before rinse cycle... won't drain or spin.


The REGULAR CYCLE button turns the drain pump on or off. The REGULAR LED will turn
on when the pump is on. This feature can be used to drain the tub. You could get a bucket and lay the hose on the fllor. Gravity will drain it down.
