Follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

Level
If it is shaking and not sitting flat ( should have no rock corner to corner) check the leveling legs. Make sure to tighten up the locknut after adjusting.

Timer
Sometimes a Timer will start making noises before they fail. I would highly suggest replacing the timer as soon as the noise develops. This can cause problems with your motor and other components if left alone. This is easy to identify just listen up near the console when running.

Transmission
The transmission does not usually fail but to check this on a direct drive remove the motor and rotate the inner tub and listen for noises it should be quiet. If not the transmission is expensive and you will need to evaluate wether it is worth repairing.

Motor Coupler
On direct drive machines this is a common failure and can be very noisy.

Motor
You will need to disassemble the motor to listen to the motor running. If the motor is noisy it will need replacing. On direct drive models check the motor coupler first.

Suspension Rods
The Suspension Rods support the tub under the cabinet on some models. The washer must be disassembled to access. These usually do not fail. On direct drive types there will be springs instead of suspension rods. Either usually fails but can from being overloaded.

Drain Pump
The drain pump can be the cause of noise. On belt drive types remove the belt and rotate the pump pulley it should spin freely and make no noise. If it is noisy replace. If it does not spin freely remove and inspect for obstructions if none found replace the pump. Check the impeller on the pump it should be tight and spin freely. On direct drive types remove the pump and inspect it

SOURCE: washing machine makes buzzing noise

Check the water pump for an obstruction in the chamber area, your pump may be sticking and that will cause the buzzing sound. The water pump runs during the fill portion of the cycle on several of the selected wash cycles to recirculate the water.

Hi there
That fault is the pump blocked error (no change in water level).
i have a quick and easy way to solve this problem.

first turn the machine off then tilt the machine back and lean it on something(a chair or wall), look underneath, in the top right hand corner of the plastic outer boul you will see a small pump motor it has a fan on it spin this fan and if it is hard to turn that means there is somthing stuck in the drain pump keep turning the fan and try to free whatever is stuck in the pump, then try the machine on spin again all goin well the object in the pump should come out with the drain water(doing this will not harm the machine) if the object is still stuck you will need to get the water out of the machine (bailing or siphioning will work) and tilt the machine back again and take the wires off the pump and there should be a white tab on the boul holding the pump on pull this tab and twist the pump anticlockwise about a quarter turn(you will need a few towels or a boul or bucket to catch the water) and it should come off exposing the blockage.
Hope this solves your Problem.

Nick

SOURCE: Fisher & Paykel washer GW712 won't spin

There is an issue with your drainage area. Best to remove the pump and check for the obstruction in the line or at the impellar.(If the water is not completely drained, the pressure switch wont send a low level to the timer to allow a spin).

SOURCE: water will not drain out

Hi just read your posting.1st you need to drain some of the water by hand using a small bucket or pot ,enough so you can lean the machine back to look under the machine.If you have the old style of pump you will see a red or black fan under the machine front right.If you have this pump turn the fan a few times to loosen it.The fan should turn freely.Then put it back on its feet and select a spin cycle and push start.It should start to drain and then spin.Please reply on how you got on or if you have the new type of pump which has no fan.Looking forward to your reply.

Washes then does not empty and spin


It has to drain first before it can spin. Put it on final spin & press start. If you can hear a humming noise that will be the drain pump trying to go. It will have a blockage.

Hi just read your posting.Now when you hear the humming noise, even though the machine is not powered up, is the noise comming from the top near the MOTOR CONTROLLER? Why did you replace the RPS ?If the hum is coming from the CONTROLLER then your CONTROLLER might be faulty.When the machine is not powered up no noise should come from it at all.Please reply with additional information on the questions and I am sure I can help you rectify this fault.

Loud noise when draining


You need to tilt this machine back and remove the drain pump from under the machine and check for anything stuck in there eg a hair clip or coin etc. If there's nothing stuck in there you may need to repalce the drain pump. Cheers
