Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer
I've had trouble with the drain pump but can get it to work. However, during the 1st fill cycle of the wash cycle, it fills to a point and then it is supposed to "spray" soapy water over the clothes. It's part of the process. On mine, it stopped doing this recently and I wondered if the same pump that drains it, is also the one that sprays the water? If they are one and the same, why would it work duringthe drain cycle and not during the spray cycle? Or are they 2 differrent pumps?
Ok,vi think you may be slightly confused as to the operation of your washing machine, so let me try cover bases: You have two inlet ports at the back of your machine, both of those have a solenoid valve, which control the supply of water to the dispenser, which distributes the water into the bowl like a watering can (lots of little holes). There is no pump, or pump like mechanism here only the water pressure from the taps. You also have a drain pump about 15cm from the base of your machine, from memory on the right hand side with a black hose coming out of it. Your inlets and drain pump are never in operation at the same time (as that Would be a complete waste of water). David identified a possiblity, considering your drain pump is causing you problems (most washing machines are interrelated and has secondary issues because of simple error) take the time to fully investigate this: Disconnect your machine, tilt on its side keeping an incline though as you don't want water on any electronics, take the drain hose(usually black) off, then ensure the fins of the drain pump are intact and clear of debris. Then as David said investigate the dispenser for debris, if neither show signs that they would cause the fault then you will need to have a look at the valves. Hopefully that helps

It's the same pump but, the click you hear between cycles is a solenoid switching between hoses. Chances are-you have a buildup of debris at the inlet of the pump. I've removed baby socks from them already.
