Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer

Fisher Paykel dishwasher

I started a load of clothes and the tub filled and washed but will not empty and go into the spin cycle.  Three lights are lit and the washer just beeps to alert that something is wrong.  I unplugged the unit and tried to "reset" it thinking the problem may be with the computer, but that did not work.  Any suggestions?

    My Fisher Paykel GWL 11 will fill with water, wash, but will not go further. I can hear that it should be working, the sound stops when I push pause. I have taken the pump out, can't tell if anything is in the pump. How does the water get to the pump? Can something be stuck before the pump?
    Thanks,
    Paul

Tilt the washer backwards. looking under the washer toward the front right corner youll see a black fan blade. its part of the drain pump. see if you can turn it manually. if you cant then you can push in the white plastic tab up close to the tub, and twist the pump to the left. be prepared because all the water in the tub is going to come out. once you get the pump out you might find a sock or something wraped around it. if so just remove it and reinstall the pump. if nothing is stuck around the pump or if the pump turns manually then the windings in the pump are bad just replace it

To add to previous solution, be sure to remove hoses interconnecting pump and diverter and clean them out. They can get plugged up with small pieces coming off clothes in the wash.

This was my problem when I had the same symtoms as yours.

This problem will often occur with a light load of clothes. The beeping is usually the unbalanced load alarm. Often, redistributing the clothes around the agitator and moving the agitator manually up and down and side to side to center it again will fix the problem. You may need to advance a new cycle to where it spins out to empty the washer and run the laundry again.

A failed inlet valve is not uncommon in F&P machines. The hot valve is different to the cold one, so don't exchange them. Not a big job for a tech to do in-laundry. Good luck....Nomess

Stops before rinse cycle... won't drain or spin.


The REGULAR CYCLE button turns the drain pump on or off. The REGULAR LED will turn
on when the pump is on. This feature can be used to drain the tub. You could get a bucket and lay the hose on the fllor. Gravity will drain it down.

You have a blocked pump, tilt machine back and take pump of, it is the small thing with the black fan it is 3\4 turn to get it off, remove the blockage and you should be all good :)

For those with water on floor after wash, check my post on "eco smart won't drain, smells hot". It could be something clogging drainage area at very bottom of the tub. I couldn't see the sock that was stuck in my FP's drain when I looked from the top between the white outer tub and the wash tub--everything looked fine. Then I removed the black motor/white plastic housing piece--Tip back washer and you should see this black electric motor/white housing on bottom. see my post for how to remove and check for plugged drain. it's really pretty easy.

don't know about outer tub holes, but glad i don't have that problem.

i hate my fisher paykel washer/dryer. i can't wait to sell this house--i will leave them here and get a new front load Duette for my next house!
