My GWL 15 pumps so hard water comes out of the

My Fisher and Peykel GWL 15 pumps so hard on the first rinse that water comes out of the standpipe and floods the floor. I've called several people and nobody has heard of this problem. I've had the drains cleaned so it's not that. What's wrong?

A washer cannot pump the water out too fast, regardless of what you have done or have been told, the problem is too do do with the drain outlet, I suggest you completely take apart the stand pipe and any other pipes connected, and thouroughly clean them .
Please rate my solution.

My machine seems to be letting the water out when its filling and then tries to wash with no water in it?

10.5 Siphoning
Typically this occurs when the Standpipe height is too low. The minimum is 33.46in / 850mm from
the floor. This is 3.54 in / 90mm ABOVE the drain hose outlet on the machine. With a very low
standpipe and a very high water level, this could result in water pouring down the standpipe prior to
the machine completing fill and resulting in no water in the basket during agitate.
If the drain hose is pushed too far into the standpipe or drain, the machine will siphon during rinse,
which could result in a 'No Taps' user warning.
Siphoning can result from a restricted drain hose or partial pump block.

Washing machine will not turn on.

Hi just read your posting.Have you checked the power point for power with a toaster or hair dryer?If there is power to the machine then there are 2 reasons why it is not powering up.1st-- the drain pump is open circuit 2nd the control module is faulty.1st empty the machine by hand so you can look underneath the machine by tipping it back far enough to see the pump.Now the pump will either have a red or black fan on it ,or you will see no fan and that means you have the new style pump.please reply with the type of pump you have and if you have or can borrow an electrical test meter and i can guide you step by step to find out if the pump is faulty or the controller or both.

During the rinse cycle, our GWL 11 Fisher & Paykel

The problem is in the pump, so it will not pump out, you will need to find another way to empty it, removing the agitator will make the job easier.
When you get the water out the pump can be accessed from underneath, it turns anticlockwise to remove it,.
I would buy a new pump as it is most likely that is all that is wrong with it.

My machine will fill & go thru a wash cycle but wont rinse or spin.

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.
