Hi Tom. if the noise is a loud SCREECH that almost sounds like a wounded bird, you need to replace the water pump. The part is easy to replace with no tools and you can get one from Fisher Paykel Parts:

Producing debris when in spin cycle


2.13.1 Scrud
If fabric softener is used regularly it will eventually cause a build up within the outer bowl. This can
result in black flakes present in the wash load that can stain garments. To remove scrud follow the
procedure below.
Step1: Add a full cup of a good quality dishwashing powder such as Active or a similar product
into the machine.
Step 2: Set the machine to a Heavy Duty cycle, select a Hot Wash temperature, High Water level
and allow the machine to agitate for 10 minutes.
Step 3: Leaving the lid closed, turn the machine off and allow to soak overnight.
Step 4: The following day, turn the machine on and advance to the spin cycle to drain the water
from the machine. After the water has drained, turn the machine off then back on again, and select
a Heavy Duty cycle, Hot wash, High Water level, and allow the machine to complete a full cycle to
ensure that all of the loose scrud and residual detergent has been flushed away.
Note: If there is an extremely heavy build up the bowl will have to be removed for pressure washing

I have a Fisher Paykel Model GWL11. It is squealing very loudly during the fill cycles. I am afraid the water pump is going out?? Any ideas?


Hi Chris2483,

I have come across this before. It is the water inlet valves. Replace these and your all set.

What does the 'eco option' on the MW512NZ model actually mean?? Cheers


Eco is a water saver option, using less water on the rinse cycle. It saves 25% more water than the water saver option on the rinse cycle (if available, depending on model). Eco and water saver cannot be used with fabric softener. Eco and water saver are slower than the regular rinse cycle.

My machine (GWL11) is making a very loud squealing noise. I notice it when it is first filling up, and then later during the wash. It isn't my water lines. The tub also has a sour water smell most of the...


Hi there it will most definately be the pump, if you look under the machine or in the hatch, you will see on the right hand side the pump, spray some CRC or WD40 on it, it will be awesome after that :)

Loud whirring noise going into rinse cycle. Low


Hi tuck just read your posting.Now on the low whirring noise on the start of the rinse cycle ,Is it when the machine is draining the water or filling with water.If the noise happens when the machine is draining then I think either your pump has something slowing it down or it is faulty.Please look underneath the machine to the front right and you should see a red or black fan .If you do then this is your pump.If you don't see a fan you must have the newer style of pump.Please reply with additional information on the questions and I am sure I can help you rectify this problem

Screeching noise after water starts going in


Hi just read your posting.Now put the machine to a spin cycle and push start,Does the noise happen in this cycle? If the noise doesn't happen then try a cold water fill but turn the hot tap off first.If the noise still doesn't happen then try a hot water fill but turn the cold water off first. This noise sounds like one of your water valves is faulty.Please reply with additional information on the questions and I am sure we can rectify this fault.

GWL11 stops mid cycle several times with hot water light on


There is a sensor on this machine that I have seen cause this on this machine. Open the lid and remove by pulling straight up. Next remove the control panel by removing the two phillips head screws and tilt the face forward and lift up. there is a sensor pluged inbetween the cold and hot water valves. This sensor is contacted by a ground connector that is some what like a spring connection around the sensor connected by a green wire with a yellow tracer. Make certain this sensor is tight to the ground connection and clean if all of this correct replace temperature sensor.
