Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer
Husband thought it was the diverter valve, and replaced it with a brand new one that came today. Washer didn't spin before we got the part. Spinning now, but water wont start to come out/fill the machine. Hoses aren't clogged. We have a stackable that we've been using, and the water comes through the hoses just fine for the other washer when hooked up.
Any suggestions?? Thanks!

the water comes through 2 vavle 1 for washing and the other for rinsing more than likely that the rinse valve is down it will need replacing thats the more common fault for washers not rinsing

SOURCE: RE: won't drain
I had the same symptoms (washes normally, but won't drain/spin) It would only make a faint hum. I found it fairly easy to lift and tilt back the upper section id by removing the front two screws under the lid. The aggitator came out easily by removing the softener cup and unscrewing the large plastic wingnut inside. The upper plastic shroud came off by carefully removing the eight or so plastic tabs. Once the shroud was off, I could lift out the main wash tub. With the wash tub out, I was able to remove all remaining water from the holding tub with a cup and sponge out all water down into the depression where the pump assembly is located. One screw removed the cover to the pump assembly. Once apart, I found a thin piece of plastic was jamming the pump impeller from spinning. I blew through the drain hose from the back to ensure the drain system was clean. Reassembled in reverse in less than 10 minutes. It worked. Thanks Fixya!!!

Hi Alan.. usually if there is a problem where the diverter valve is not sensed by the machine control, it will throw a fault code and beep and not complete the cycle. There should be a tech sheet under the control panel. Did you make sure you properly re-connected the two orange wires on your new diverter valve?
I certainly have encountered several over the years where the control stops puting voltage to the diverter in recirculate mode.
If you want to be able to use all the cycles on the machine, then you need a new control board. That is part #420094USP and can be purchased from Fisher Paykel Parts direct;
If you need to do laundry in the meantime, use the PERMA PRESS wash cycle, it should work for you, as that cycle does not use the diverter valve.
Also inspect your water pump and make sure it isnot wet or leaky, as this can cause the machine control to either short out altogether or lose functionality on some cycls such as you are experiencing.
I hope this info is helpful to you.

Hi just read your posting.Now when you say it 'catches', what exactly does this mean?Was the pump corroded in any way?After the pump drains for awhile is it hot to touch?Best guess on the fault is pump.But I have seen on a machine, the motor controller being faulty.Is your pump the model with an external fan?Have you or can you borrow an electrical test meter to test the OHMS of the pump windings?Please reply with additional information on the questions and I am sure I can help you further.
