Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer

A belt?

I have a Fisher/Paykel top loader model GWL10U2 that I have had for over 7 years and it suddenly has stopped spinning. I had noticed a burnt rubber smell in the wash room and was wondering if this could be a belt and how hard would it be to change?

Hi,

The problem is your door lock. if the washer is not getting the signal that is locked it will not go into spin. the wax motor in the door lock unit is probably shot. i wouldreplace the entire door lock unit.

OR

all electrical parts get their signals from the timer assembly. the timer operates of a small motor much like a motor from an ac electric clock. inside the mechanical timer are contacts which make and break according to a preset timer cam which advances throughout the timed cycle. if a contact is burnt or burnt off that function will not operate. if there is a mechanical hangup inside, the timer will not function. replacing the timer can be expensive at about $130. the timer schematic of a washer can be very confusing because certain functions happen the same time as others, while others are actually open. the timer cams and how they are connected appear on the timer open/closed chart.

Thanks

Fisher & Paykel Pride 5.5 Smartdrive 8 not spining


There is a transmission clutch that engages for the spin cycle. A gear has worn or broken a tooth. Replacement of the transmission hispeed spin cycle assembly is required.

The other comments are of no use. You must get parts from an Authorized Fisher & Paykel dealer, or have an authorized repairman service the machine.
