Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer

The drain/circulation pump quit on my fisher paykel gwl11

I ordered a new pump from sears parts and the pump arrived today.  I thought I would drain remaining water so I plugged in the machine and all the lights and sound came on like normal when first plugged in.  I then advance it to the rinse cycle to drain the tub and hit start everything goes dead.  I then unplugged the machine removed the old pump and let the water drain on the floor,  clean up and install the new pump.  I then plug in again and no lights or sounds.  I look for a inline fuse at the control module and nothing on the outside of it.  I want to take it apart but I thought I would look for a service manual or a answer on line first.  Can you help?

    My problem sounds the same except that I smell a slight burning smell.

    I have had virtually the whole machine apart, cleaned everything rinsed the drum, the water pump cleaned all the pump covers, checked pipes for blockages and still can't get rid of this Fault Code. Machine starts its cycle, fills with water then doesn't drain. If I change the cycle manually the pump drains the water with no issues. Seems to look like a circuit board type issue that needs resetting?

Checked the control board for a fuse.  Found two fuses on the printed circut board.  Checked both for continuity, one had none a 6.3 amp fuse sodered into the board.  went to a local electronics store and purchased a similar and replaced fuse.  Everything works fine now.

Our GWL11 washer stops during rinse, won't fully empty, shows code 37 in diagnostic. Can get pump to drain the tub (in pulses) in diagnostic mode and water circulates during wash. pump resistance is low:...

if pump resistance is low, you risk overheating and blowing your electronic board. you are best to order the pump. if you pause the washer during pump out, this will allow it to cool, then you can resume wash, but this will take you hanging around your washer while its going.

How do I change the drain pump on my Fisher Paykel GWL11? Where can I get a service manual?

If you call their technial assistance number listed in your users manual they will send you a manual for $49.00. That is the only source I know of. As for parts Sears Direct has diagrams of your model here. Just click on the link that matches your exact model (there are only 2 links) 50 /50 chance! :)!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=GWL11&=part+number

The 68 page users manual in PDF format can be found here.

As for the step by step on the pump change regretfully I can't help you without seeing it myself. Hope this helps as it has taken 45 mins just to get the infromation above for you.

Fisher Paykel gwl11 washer leaking and squealing

Set the machine on its side and started taking it apart til the problem was obvious. Called Fisher for the parts. A big black seal is out and a bearing above the impellor that cools the motor, we ordered a pump assembly that is on the bottom side of the motor. I am still going to replace the water pump in the drain side, that is a no brainer. Will update on the repair when the parts arrive

Washer will not drain

90% chance that is the pump is pumping water at all, there is blockage between the tub and the drain pump. If there is no water coming out of the drain line. either extremely clogged(odd) or pump motor is bad, and windings are not allowing rotation.
