My GWL15 washer keeps alarming out between the wash cycle and the rinse cycle. The agitator works but seems like a struggle to get moving, It has been repaired twice under warranty and ther was a string...


Hi,
Tip the unit back, the pump is where you would need to look, it should be on your right towards the front. If the water level in low you can do this with out getting wet, If full, you will need to remove the water before trying this. There is a clip to the drain pump, lift the clip easy, rotate the pump and pull down, if clogged you should see it there.
I am here if you need more information

Pentair whisper flow pump makes whinning sound


Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.


Your motor bearings are failing. It is most often caused by a leaking pump seal. It is a relatively inexpensive repair if it is caught early enough; before the shaft is damaged from the corrosive water eating into the steel.

Take it to a local electric motor repair shop for inspection. It will likely need a set of 203 bearings for the motor and a mechanical seal for the pump. All told, depending on the labor rates, it should be less than $75. You could try to repair this yourself however if you are not familiar with the process it is money well spent having someone who is do the repair for you.

The pump has gotten where it pumps a few seconds and stops ,I thought maybe it's low on oil


Most sump pumps are sealed so they have no way to add oil. I would see if your pump discharge line has a check valve installed in it.It should have a check valve installed so that waste can only flow away from pump.Otherwise the pump can cycle for a short period,shut off and have water in vertical pipe flow back into sump basin causing pump to cycle again. Also if your pump does have a check valve in it make sure that it doesn't have anything caught in it that would stop it from closing completely. Some pumps have a check valve installed on the pump. It is also possible that you may have something caught in the pump impeller. you will need to remove pump to inspect the impeller. Hope this helps you. Thanks
