Question about Fisher and Paykel (IWL12)
Have replacement agitator. Have unscrewed wingnut on old one, but it seems to be stuck. It won't lift out. Now what do I do?
Use some de-greaser spray like WD-40 to loose the jammed nut. Also a slight heat with a gentle tap can release the jammed nut.
Do not try to use excess force to damage the head but give it time to sink in so that it will release. Use clockwise and then counter to release the jamming.

That fault is the pump blocked error (no change in water level).
i have a quick and easy way to solve this problem.
first turn the machine off then tilt the machine back and lean it on something(a chair or wall), look underneath, in the top right hand corner of the plastic outer boul you will see a small pump motor it has a fan on it spin this fan and if it is hard to turn that means there is somthing stuck in the drain pump keep turning the fan and try to free whatever is stuck in the pump, then try the machine on spin again all goin well the object in the pump should come out with the drain water(doing this will not harm the machine) if the object is still stuck you will need to get the water out of the machine (bailing or siphioning will work) and tilt the machine back again and take the wires off the pump and there should be a white tab on the boul holding the pump on pull this tab and twist the pump anticlockwise about a quarter turn(you will need a few towels or a boul or bucket to catch the water) and it should come off exposing the blockage.
Hope this solves your Problem.

Hi just read your posting.Is the machine draining any of the water?If it is not draining then bail some of the water out with a small bucket or pot, just enough so you can look under the machine without it leaking everywhere.Now when you are looking under the machine look to the front right and you will see a red or black fan.This is your pump.Turn the fan clockwise and anticlockwise a few times to loosen it if it is jammed.The fan should turn freely.If the pump turns freely then put the machine back on its feet and select a spin cycle and push start.The machine should now drain the water and then it will spin.Please reply on how you got on or if the machine still does not drain.Looking forward to your reply.
