Chances are it's the 6 inch or so rubber "U" tube you see attached from the diverter valve to the pump. The end that goes to the pump has to slip under the metal housing and turn it about a half an inch, then use the clamps to secure it.

SOURCE: Fisher Paykel gwl11 washer leaking and squealing

Set the machine on its side and started taking it apart til the problem was obvious. Called Fisher for the parts. A big black seal is out and a bearing above the impellor that cools the motor, we ordered a pump assembly that is on the bottom side of the motor. I am still going to replace the water pump in the drain side, that is a no brainer. Will update on the repair when the parts arrive

SOURCE: water leaking on my fisher paykel washer. does it

Hi, It is due to a split in the flexible hose from the bowl to the pump. When machine is working, the split opens and closes, but when not operating it can be closed up enough to prevent seeing it leaking. .

Hi,The water pump is assembled with a sealed bearing (lubed from the manufacturer)
Usually you can feel play in the bearing when its worn.
The seal of the water pump will squeal if it runs without water (it needs the coolant to lubricate it )
So is it possible there`s an air lock in the pump area of the coolant system
Other than that the noise could be coming from something else that the same belt drives

Dishwasher makes a lot of mechanical noise when running


If your dishwasher seems noisy, check these:
Water-inlet valve
An aging water-inlet valve can sometimes fail slowly, rather than all at once. It can shudder on and off rapidly, causing the incoming water lines to shake, rumble, and rattle--sometimes violently. If yours is doing this, replace the inlet valve.
Motor
If it's the motor that's noisy, either of these may be the "culprit:"
As motor bearings wear out, they can become quite loud when the motor runs. They wear out quickly if they frequently get wet, because the water washes away the motor bearing grease. Bearings can get wet if the spin seal is defective. Then there will also be water leaking onto the floor beneath the dishwasher. Replace the seal if it leaks (read about the main tub seal in the "It leaks" section, later).
If, from beneath the dishwasher, you can see a round, plastic disc that's mounted to the top of the motor (a "slinger"), it may have broken free of the motor shaft. If so, it could be rattling around the shaft while the motor is running. If that's the problem, you need to replace the motor.
Heater fan
If the heater fan bearings are rusted or worn, they may squeal, or scrape loudly during the drying cycle. If this is the problem, replace the fan motor. Alternatively, the fan blade may be loose. If so, you need to replace it.
Pump
Small fruit pits, toothpicks, and fragments of glass sometimes get stuck in the pump. When this happens, open the pump and remove the debris. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher.
To get to the pump, you usually need to remove the lower rack, the spray arms, and the spray arm support from the inside of your dishwasher. A dishwasher pump isn't obvious. Look for an impeller--a round, plastic fan blade-type device that spins around and pushes the water toward the drain. When you can see the drain impeller, you should be able to see the clogging debris.

1 Look at the heater fan to check for rusty or squeaky parts. If defective parts are found, replace the fan. If not, go on to the next step.
2 Replace the water inlet valve, which is located at the bottom of one of the sides of the dishwasher, beneath the lower access panel. As a water inlet valve ages, it can sometimes slowly stop working correctly, switching between "on" and "off" every few seconds. This can cause a shaking and rattling noise. If this does not fix the noise, go on to the next step.
3 Remove the lower rack and the lower spray arm from the dishwasher, removing any screws as needed to do so.
4 Beneath the lower spray arm is a pump that contains a propeller. Check the pump for debris (like small bones, seeds, or fragments of glass) that might be causing the noise. If this does not fix the noise, go on to the next step.
5 Beneath the pump is the dishwasher's motor. Check to see if the plastic dish at the top of the motor has broken off. If it has, it may be rattling when the motor is on and causing the noise. In this case, replace the entire motor.
6 Check the bearings on the motor. If they are worn out, replace them.
7 If you cannot trace the noise to its source, try replacing the motor.

High pitched noise


This is a water pump about to blow, or a clogged filter or hose. The fact that you hear it immediately, and limited water level is involved, it's pretty much your bingo.
After turning off the water supply, unscrew the garden hose-like attachments for hot and cold water intake. There is sometimes a small filter right there where the water enters. If they're clogged, clean em.
Take the hoses and run them through an outside plug to make sure they aren't clogged with back flowed dirt from the filter and hard water.
If it still won't fill, you'll need to test the pump.
each machine is different, but if you follow the hoses from where your hoses enter the machine, you should be able to unscrew them at the other end.
Stick them in a deep bucket then turn on the machine and see what the pump does. Is the noise coming from it? (service or replace). Does water gush out of the pump into the bucket? (clean all hoses and filters, buy some machine grease and lube all the moving parts, including opening the water pump and giving it a generous amount of grease.
Put it all back and your squeal will one way or another be gone and you'll have plenty of water

Yesterday made a grinding noise and leaked water out on the floor from under unit.it still works


The noise would be indeed coming from the water pump.

To clean the pump on this top-loader you have to unplug it, pop the top open, and remove the front face of the cabinet to expose the motor and pump.

Slip off the two metal clips hugging the pump to the motor. Place a towel under the motor before detaching the hoses - there's a plastic drip pan between the pump and motor to guide the water away from the motor.

Unclamp the two hoses from the pump by squeezing their spring-clamps with pliers and sliding them further down the hose. Pull the hoses off by lifting the pump off its axle and pulling it out while wiggling the hoses loose. Check if anything jammed in the pump - it must have fallen to the outside of the basket but inside the drum during the last spin cycle, and went down the drain hose. Check the pump for damage and replace if necessary.

For future troubleshooting, remember that a clogged pump causes squealing, diminished spin speed, and slow drainage.

The first thing I would do is to inspect the inner tub. Empty your washer and carefully check all holes inside the inner tub and under the agitator for any foreign objects and remove if any.

If it's nothing there then you have to remove the front panel. Tape the lid to the top panel. Using a putty knife push in to release top panel clips on both sides. Lift up the top panel toward the back.

Remove the screws on top of the front panel on each side. Pull out the top of the front panel toward yourself for about 30 degrees and release it from the bottom clips. Now you have an access to inside the washer. Run the washer without the front panel and try to locate the sound. Let me know your findings.

Sounds like my 91 Geo Merto LOL! Anywho when it washes the pump spins one way and water is basically thrown back into the tub, then when on spin it spins in the opposite direction and if there is a hose leak past the pump or the pump itself leaks it will come out of the drain system. As for the thump, check under the unit for anything that shouldnt be under there getting caught up in the mechanics. Let us know :-)
