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 dishwasher drawer won't stop.

Let's go to diagnostic test mode to see if you can retrieve the the actuator hence the tube out.
1- Press Lock button and start/pause key until the display showing up.
2- Press Power to show HO.
3- Press start button to advance the display until you see P2 for draining, if you pass, keep doing it to get it back in a loop.
4- When at P2, press lock to turn on, press a again to turn off.
5- Listen to the sound of the pump. If you hear nothing that means the pump is dead or stuck.
6- The Motor has 2 directions: one for, Rinse and one for Drain. When you done with the diagnostic, press the power button to get out of the mode.
7- If this is the case, unplug the power then remove the rack, the bottom stanless steel plate with holes then take out the rotor to clean up. It is a good design the stator is outside of the tube, so you don't have to worry too much about the complication.
8- Make a note of all the positions so you can put them back the same as they were. Good luck

Fault code 37

Hello, code 39 is indicating you have an issue with the drain pump. The most common being the pump is failing. If you have been hearing any kind of sqeeking or squeeling or a rattling sound during the wash cycle the pump is failing and will need to be replaced.

Our Fisher and Paykel excellence 5.5 smart drive 9, washes fine but when it comes on rinse cycle it wont drain the water and makes a humming sound.

Check your pump with a multimeter for correct reading
230V AC Pump 50Hz 33Ohms +/- 8% @ 20oC
110V AC Pump 60Hz 7Ohms +/- 8% @ 20oC
Also check for blockages that may stop pump from turning.
Disconnect from power & Bail out all the water you can before removing pump.

Tub is filled with water and washing machine stops and does not rinse ~ can hear the motor humming but thats it....!

Hi just read your posting.Does the machine empty the water?If not the humming you hear is the pump.Bail some of the water by hand and the tip the machine back enough so you can look underneath the machine.Depending which model you should see a fan.This fan is part of your pump.Turn the fan clockwise and then anticlockwise a few times to loosen it and the put the machine back of its feet and select a spin cycle and push start.The machine should start to drain.Please reply on how you got on or if you do not have this style of pump or if the machine still does not drain.Please turn power off at the wall before touching the pump.Looking forward to your reply.

We are using model #gwl15 fisher and paykel top load washer. When it gets to the rinse cycle it justs beeps. It won't go any further. It is not unbalanced. I've taken all of the clothes out of the...

Hi just read your posting.Now when it beeps and stops do any lights flash or come on?If they do they will be on a row of 8 lights.Starting from the far left which lights are on or flashing?Are they the 1st and 4th light or 3rd and 6th --etc--?Please look underneath the machine and look to the front right of the machine You should see your pump which should have a red or black fan on it.Turn this fan a few times and hopefully this will loosen your pump if it is jammed.If you have the pump without the fan please reply and I can guide you throe unjamming it.I think with your symptoms you have described, you might have a jammed pump.Please reply for further help.Hope this helps.

Fisher Paykel not pumping

The pump is down underneath the machine. The fact that you hear a HUM is a clear indicator that there's something caught in the pump. You have to tip the machine back in order to get at the pump.

If you need a factory service manual, you can get one from fisher paykel here for only 10 bucks:

Here's some things to check: The electric water pump on those machines can be stopped by objects that get under the machine- The pump has a "fan" on it, and I have seen numerous times where a sheet of fabric softener like "BOUNCE" will get sucked into the pump's fan and "strangle" it.
Follow these instructions: Starting with the machine OFF, take one finger and depress the water temperature adjustment button for DECREASE (arrow points DOWN) and hold it down, and while holding it down, turn the machine on by pressing the power button.
If you did it right, you should hear two quick BEEPS. Now release the buttons. This sets the machine in "technician mode"
Now press the REGULAR button (the cycle selector button for a REGULAR wash cycle)
You should hear the water pump start and the water should be going out the drain hose. If you hear a slight "HUM" then the water pump is jammed with either an object inside the tub or the aforementioned sheet of bounce or whatever. If you hear the pump start but the water seems to be recirculating back into the tub, then something is either caught in the machine's DIVERTER VALVE or the valve is physically broken. In rare instances, the machine control has a short and is powering up the diverter valve all the time rather than only when it is supposed to...

Fisher & Paykel intuitive code 37

As a serviceman for 18 years I have seen this numerous times.
The fault sounds like the motor control module.. Assuming your test on the pump windings was ok..?

Stalled Motor

quite possibly the drain pump which would cause it to stick in rinse cycle. the humming noise you heard is probably the drain pump powered up but jammed. likely cause is a foreign object stuck in the pump impellor - main culprit is bits of bra wire. take the pump to pieces and extract whatever is jamming it.
