Spring under the lid came loose, I don't know where to hook it back up.
I have the F&P GWL11 and the spring under the top that pulls the tub towards the front left corner comes undone. Last time it was still under warranty and the repair guy said it was simple, so I didn't make him show me how to fix it. Now, no warranty and I don't see where the spring hooks up to. I don't know if it's missing a hook type piece because it just has a circl on the unattached side, so I looked for a hook on the tub or something and I don't see it.

unplug the machine,remove the two phillips screws that hold down the top console,flip up the console,with a screw driver pop the two metal clips,just stick the screw driver in the hole and on top of the clip and push back towards the wall and the clip will release,in between the clips you'll see the lid switch,a white plastic harness connector,unplug that then open the lid,grab the frame pull back and up and remove the frame of the washer,look at the bottom rear of the frame and the tub,you should see a spring hanging there,the hole that it was connected to rotted out,you need to drill a new hole and connect the spring to it,that spring keeps the machine from bouncing all around like it is
Hi just read your posting. Under the lid there are 2 plastic covers one on the left and one on the right toward the front of the machine.If you remove the covers with a screw driver there will be one screw under each cover.Unscrew these screws and now you can lift the hob up to see the suspension rods.Lift the hob gently and slowly.Hope this helps.Please reply for further help if needed.Good luck.
You need 2 people for this.. Unscrew plastic wingnut down the centre of the agitator.(2) undo 2 phillips head screws under little rubber covers just under lid at front top edge.(3)lift top of machine like a car bonnet,get someone to hold it up for you.(4)Unclip big round plastic ring on top of the bowl,you may find its attached with a spring at the front left hand corner,just lay the plastic ring over front of machine & let it hang.The bowl should just lift straight out.Be carefull,the outside of the metal bowl is like a cheese greater trust me! PS when you put it back together & you lower the top of the machine(make sure that little white plastic lever hanging down) the right hand rear go's outside the righthand rear of the tub NOT squashed on top.Its an out of balance lever & it needs to dangle outside of the bowl/tub right rear.GOOD LUCK!
undo 2 screws at front of machine under lid. they will have plastic covers over them. lift the hob gently and u will see 4 suspension rods holding the tank. before u do this try this. wind the 2 back feet down and the 2 front feet up about 1 inch . this will make the bowl lean towards the front of the machine away from the out of balance lever, which is at the back right. try this see how u go. please reply 4 more help
The spring you see hanging in the back is called the counterbalance spring, the long one as you described it. The purpose of this spring is to counterbalance the weight of the motor hanging in the front, where it is leaning. It is hooked into the back frame of the washer, have seen the hole wear through on other washers, it is a simple matter to drill another hole and hook the spring next to where it has wore through.
As to your top and the ears, would recommend pulling off the entire cabinet to look at it. This washer is front serviceable, you rotate the control panel up, a screw in each end cap holds it down or some concealed springs that are released by pushing in with a putty knife under the front bottom of each end cap.(there are two types) Under the control panel you will see two clips to release and the lid switch plug, then the whole cabinet assembly simply pulls off towards you. There is a direct drive coupling between the transmission and motor that takes the place of a belt and may be ready for replacement, also has dogs in the dual agitator that can be serviced. There are descriptions of this on fixya, it is a fairly common washer design, good luck.
Make sure that where the spring attaches to the bottom of the tub mount, is not rusted into also. If it's not replace the spring. Here is how.
Find where spring goes back to. Possession your self on the side where the spring Now from under the washer, pull the tub toward you (the place where the spring goes) Be ready to hook spring back up. If you cant get this to work, try laying the machine down so that the tub will fall toward the spring goes. This will mae it 100% easier to replace them.

Hi Sleepy. When you say "spring" are you talking about the small spring attached between the left-front shock rod and the small red tab on the tub rim, or are you talking about one of the tub support rods/shock absorbers? If it's the latter, it has probably broken and has to be replaced. What I usually see happen is that the rod pulls right out of the angular bracket that supports the rod. if the rod came undone it is very easy to re-install it, you hook the bottom round "bearing" onto the tub, lift the rod up and set the angled bracket back into the corner of the cabinet. if this angled bracket is still attached to the corner and you see a rod and spring, then you broke the shock rod. If this is the case, they are sold in sets of 4 and you can get them here: http://www.fisherpaykelparts.net/ecart/item.php?item_id=218&category_id=54
you can lift the top and get a closer l;ook, by opening lid and looking approx, 4 inches back along side rail, youll see a rubber plug, remove the plugs toreveal the screws hoding down the main top. after emoving screw lift the top back and you see the 4 suspension bars tha hold the machine, either one "popped" or the left front corner should have a sdpring attached form it to the tub( clips on to the red little bracket on side of outer tub). either of thesse swill fixyour problem
there are 3 springs that hold it to the frame,remove the 2 screws from the washer head,one on each side,now pull up on the head and lift the front out and up,you will see 2 spring clips pop them out with a flat screw driver,open the lid and pull the washer case toward you,sit it aside and look at the other springs they will tell you where the other one goes,also the tub sits on a triangle bracket make sure that is in place to,under the tub,let me know-mike
Remove lid then control panel. Unhook all terminals, remove control board, then second "box" which is further away towards back of machine. Sensor is 'back/right," under this second box. Unhook connectors & remove wee sensor carefully. On the side of the sensor is a tiny plastic button the size of a pen top. This should move in & out freely. It is spring loaded. If it sticks replace it. Good luck on your mission.
