Question about Fisher and Paykel Aquasmart wl80t65c
My machine leaks from underneath and when I put it through the self clean cycle, it won't complete the clean as it won't drain.It's only during the self cleaning cycle that it won't drain
Have you taken the lid off and looked at the operation whilst going through the self cleaning cycle? Have you checked that the hoses, i.e. clips, are secure? Have you checked for cracking in the hoses? If it is not evident have you tried tying kitchen towel round hoses? Have you cleaned the filter out?

You have a problem with the pressure switch cutting in too early before all of the water has drained away from the outer drum
There is either an obstruction in the outlet pipe or pump which is not allowing the water to discharge fast enough.
The machine is then spinning with too much water left in the outer drum added to the water which is being expelled from the clothes equals leaking
Take the hose off the back of the machine and put it in a sink , make sure it is secure and do a rinse cycle
Watch the outlet and make sure it is a strong flow if it is weak then you have probably got an item of clothing stuck in the pipe from the drum to the pump and a strip down is required
One more thing there is a small plastic bottle attached to the back of the outer drum this has tube which leads to the pressure switch
Make sure there is no congealed soap in the Air Bell as it is called

The first thing to do is get the machine up off the floor onto a base that allows you to slide under machine on your back with a flash light. Make sure whatever you decide to lift machine up onto is very stable and durable. Bricks, blocks, or a utility cart maybe. You need to look under machine to see where the leak is coming from. You want to make sure it is not going to fall on you. The machine is not that heavy, just awkward to lift or move because of it's size. So, you could slide something under each corner, one at a time, or ask a friend to help lift it onto a base. Now you are ready to go. Don't worry, this is really easy.
Get a towel, flashlight, and start machine on a small load with shortest cycle set.(probably delicate). After you start machine, slide under and and try to find where water is leaking from. The pump is going to be a plastic circular shape thing with ridges on outside. Probably dead front center and attached to motor. If water is leaking anywhere from plastic circle thing, then this is your problem. BUT, also follow all the black hoses that are under machine. Sometimes leak can be a cracked hose or loose attachment. That is real cheap and easy. The hoses are attached with metal ring deals. You take a pair of channel locks or big pliers and squeeze them to open. There are 2 or 3 hoses that attach to pump that will need to be removed if this is where leak is coming from. Then, the pump is only attached with metal clips that you pull out to release pump from motor. No tools needed. Take the pump to sears or local appliance shop and I guarantee they will have replacement.
