Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer
We have a Fisher & Paykel GWL11 top load washer. When it gets to the rinse cycle it stops, and begins to beep. When we did the digonostic check it said the pump is clogged, which doesn't seem to be, since water is pumping. We really need help.
The water comes through 2 vavle 1 for washing and the other for rinsing more than likely that the rinse valve is down it will need replacing thats the more common fault for washers not rinsing

Major lint clog in the pump at the bottom of the machine.
If the tub is full you will have to siphon or some other way drain the water down as low as possible. There will still be a couple of gallon remaining below the floor of the drum. Make sure you have a plastic dishpan or the like handy with this next step.
Unplug the machine and, if need be, remove the drain hose from the drain receptacle in the wall. Slide the machine out toward you away from the wall until you can tip it back about 45 degrees and lean it against the wall.
The recirculating pump is in the front right of the underside of the drum. Slide the drain pan under the location to catch as much remaining water as possible when the pump is removed. Unhook the power wire clip (2 wire connection clip) and the ground wire (green wire clip). There is a white catch release on the outside rim where the pump meets the opening in the housing. This is a "bayonet" mount which is a "twist/release" and "push/twist" method and not a threaded method. Gently lift this catch and turn the pump slowly (may take a little effort) by hand (!!). As the pump starts to turn water will stat draining around it. Try to catch as much as possible in the dishpan. Once you have the pump loose it will turn and release into your hand. Once the water has stopped draining inspect the pump opening for large lint balls or other debris that collected in the pump cavity of the machine and couldn't pass through the drain or recirculate tubing. Once you have the debris removed, reinstall the pump in the reverse order of your removal making sure the rim lock "clicks" to ensure it's full seal and check your wiring connections. Return the machine to it's upright position, plug it back in and reconnect toe drain hose to it's outlet receptacle. Turn on teh machind and set a cycle all the way to the rinse drain portion of the cycle to see if the pump now sounds and runs normally.
This SHOULD take care of your clogged pump problem and you just saved yourself $100+ for a repairman to do this for you.
The lint filtration of this machine is one of its biggest faults but it only seems to be an issue if you are washing new heavy pile towels or bathmats or area rugs that have a lot of loose fibers.
Hope this helps - good luck!!
