Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer
Leaks on floor. during Spin or Empty cycles. What are the most probable leak paths or Parts
Hi and welcome to FixYa!
Some things to check- Start with the water pump underneath the machine in the right-front of the unit. Look for signs of rust or leakage, that would be the most likely cause. Also check the operation of the diverter valve, inspect it to make sure there is not something like a lint ball or small object caught in the flapper; this can allow water to seep out of the diverter when it is supposed to be sealed in the spin or drain cycles and this seepage will get on the tub's rim as it spins and cause a leak on the floor. This kind of leak will cause water to appear as if it is leaking between the top and the cabinet.
Word of caution- the water pump is electric, and if you allow this leaking to continue, it can actually short out boh the water pump as well as the machine control.
If afer you solve the issue, if you find that I have accurately described the problem, a FIXYA rating is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
