Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer

Rods that hold tub to lid break the plastic supports

Has anyone made a better replacement part for these? This is the second break on these in the past month. A repairman put these in, because it was under warranty, but it will run out soon I fear.

I want to replace lid on my cabrio model wtw7800xw2 with a solid lid frame on glass lid keeps breaking


If all you want to do is to replace the lid, there are two TORX 15 screws on each side. Undo those and the lid should slide right off the pins. Be careful to not drop them into the tub or dispensers. You can then slide the new lid right on. Put the screws back on and test. If you lift the top cover off and mess with the springs, it is a PAIN to take off and put back on.

Whirlpool calypso washer tub shakes and rattles


whirlpool , simpson , westinghouse are all in the same manufacture house
you problem sounds like the tub suspension rod air dampers have failed
replace these rods and the tub is more stable
at the bottom end where the rods go through the mounts is a plastic cylinder that has a moving piston and spring inside ' the tip section of the plastic breaks free and then there is no air dampening effect
you will have to remove the top of the machine to get to the upper ends to replace the rods
cosy for 4 rods is around $90.00 AUD and can be got from the service agent spares

My washer filled with water and now it won't do anything. When I restart cycle I hear a humm for about 30 seconds.


Check your lid switch. Symptoms may include, no spinning, no agitation, stopping at the rinse cycle and no draining. The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3557193-replacing_a_lid_switch

On some models, the lid switch is located under the top casing by one of the lid hinges. You will know if you if you have this type of switch, because It does not have a lid strike and the small hole on the right hand side of the wash tub will not be present. This switch is actuated (toggled) by a rod on the lid hinge. With this type of switch, if you locate it and it can be toggled by hand, you may only need to adjust the actuator by bending it slightly.

A replacement lid switch (if required) can be purchased at any of the following web sites:

pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

If the model number is correct, the part number for a replacement switch is 3949247. The average price is about $20 - $30. Prices differ between these sites, so shop and compare.

If the suggestions I have listed do not match your washer symptoms, please post back and elaborate more on what the washer is/is not doing so I can provide you with better assistance. Please include your model number (located on a nameplate along the wash tub rim under the lid) if its different than the one you listed the question under so that I may be able to assist you better. I hope this information is helpful to you.

NOTE: Roper is manufactured by Whirlpool so these instructions do apply. In addition, if the tub is full of water, and will not drain, you do not need to drain the tub to complete this repair.

I overloaded my washing machine!!


Hi Tracy, welcome to Fix ya.
I believe know exactly what happened here- one or more of your tub support rods has broken and that caused the tub to drop down. Those are actually pretty easy to change yourself! Lift the lid, look for two plastic caps, one on each side, that cover the screws the secure the washer top to the cabinet. Pop the caps off, take out the screws. Now the whole top can be opened up (it's on a hinge of sorts) and now you can see the main basket/tub assembly. The rods fit in a recess on the tub at the bottom and on the top of the rods, the triangular plastic sits in each corner of the machine. There are no tools needed, these rods come off very easily.
You can get a set here: (They are sold in sets of 4 and should be replaced as a set)

I hope this info is useful to you.
