Question about Fisher and Paykel Fisher Paykel Intuitive Eco Washer IWL15
6 year old Fisher & Paykel GWL10 US won't spin. For awhile, the clothes in the very bottom seemed damper than usual. Yesterday's clothes didn't spin well, now a load today won't spin at all.
If the machine still has water in it, the drain pump is jammed or there may be an obstrution in one of the hoses. It is most likely the drain pump. Switch off the machine at the wall and unplug it. Tilt machine against a wall and look underneath. On the right you will see the drain pump. It looks upside down. Unplug the wiring harness to the pump and remove pump by turning it clockwise while at the same time releasing the little white clip that holds the pump in place. Clean thoroughly and replace pump.

Thanks! This information was very helpful in avoiding a service call for my Fisher & Paykel GWL10. Mine had a twist that lead to a simpler solution - others may experience the same problem. Symptoms were the same - clothes were still saturated with water. Seemed they either weren't spinning or water wasn't draining. No diagnostic codes, but, when I tried to manually run the pump, it just hummed. Followed the instructions to remove the pump and check for obstructions. First, I had to remove the display console, top, basket, agitator - all just to get the gallon of water out of the bottom. In the end, I could have done this by just siphoning most of the water out. When I finally got the water out of the tub, I tipped the washer up to get at the pump. I look at the drain pump - low and behold, a dryer sheet is all wrapped up around the exposed fan blade of the pump. Really tied up in there. It must have fallen out of some bundle of laundry and blown under the washer. I dislodged that and the motor spun freely. Once I put everything back together, the washer worked fine. Point is, see if you can get a look at the pump before you take the unit apart. Maybe you'll get lucky like I did and find an obstruction outside the pump.

I had a spin out problem with ours. I pulled the pump as described above. No obstructions were found, but I did empty the water. Now when I tested the spin cycle all was good.
We are now testing with a small load to see how it performs.
