SOURCE: Fisher & Paykel GWL11 Top-Load Washer troubleshooting

I've had my washer for about 8 years. I experienced the same problem - pump stopped draining the machine. I called F&P and "Patrick" told me that I need to 1) unplug the machine, 2) tilt up the front of the machine, 3) spin the pump (plastic blades) until they turn freely (usually counter clockwise) but I turn it both ways till it turns freely, 4) plug the machine back in and press the buttons to get it back where it was - this has worked every time to get the machine going again. I do a lot of "dog laundry" and I'm sure the rugs/dog hair cause the problem. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Fisher & Paykel GWL11 Leaking water

If you cannot see the water leaking from the inlet valves, check the seal just above the water pump located directly under the drum. I am in the midst of awaiting parts to fix this very thing on my FP GWL11. This leak is dripping water directly onto the motor, causing it to trip the circuit breaker during drain/spin cycles.

Note... I have also had to have the inlet valve assembly replaced as well as it was not opening to allow cold water to mix with the hot.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: washer will not drain

90% chance that is the pump is pumping water at all, there is blockage between the tub and the drain pump. If there is no water coming out of the drain line. either extremely clogged(odd) or pump motor is bad, and windings are not allowing rotation.

SOURCE: How do I change the drain pump on my Fisher Paykel

If you call their technial assistance number listed in your users manual they will send you a manual for $49.00. That is the only source I know of. As for parts Sears Direct has diagrams of your model here. Just click on the link that matches your exact model (there are only 2 links) 50 /50 chance! :) http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=GWL11&=part+number

The 68 page users manual in PDF format can be found here. http://www.managemyhome.com/mmh/lis_pdf/OWNM/L0606358.pdf

As for the step by step on the pump change regretfully I can't help you without seeing it myself. Hope this helps as it has taken 45 mins just to get the infromation above for you.

SOURCE: Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer won't

Could be something in the pump. The pump is on the bottom of the tub.
It has a locking tab which you release and then twist the pump a hair and it will fall out. Warning: Have rags ready! I have the original GWL service manual and the GWL 11 supplimental manual. Let me know if you want them.

Fisher paykel GWL11 will not power on (yes the circuit is on)


Check the water pump under the machine. These pumps fail, but are easy to replace. Ours was short circuited and actually sparked when the power button was pushed. Same no lights, no power. We had a GWL10 model, but I'm sure the GWL11 is similar.

How can I find a repair manual for my Fisher paykel GWL11 washer. I want to replace the controller, but owner's manual contains no parts listing or diagrams.


Careful! Fisher Paykel does not warrant their parts for even 1 day! I received a "new" control board from them once which did not work. Their comment to me was " It worked fine when it left here". That was the last F&P repair I ever did.
