Question about Fisher Paykel EcoSmart GWL15
Ok, your direct drive system is experiencing gear breakdown issues. the transmission(gearbox) is stripped and causing the grinding situation. The clutch is ruined as well. you may have some minor electrical motor trauma as well. i recommend disassembling the unit if possible, to inspect the direct drive and transmission/clutch assembly. you should see the drive/transmission under the drum assembly.
Check thoroughly for trauma spots. replace the direct drive assembly if damage is noticed.
There should be some kind of oil leakage around the drive assembly. inspect the motor as well.
If the motor is not smoking or humming, it should be fine. More than likely, it will be the drive and transmission assembly that will need to be replaced.
Please rate and have a great day:)
