    I have a GWL-11 about 2-3 yrs old. I also have a leak just before the drum starts spinning fast to drain water. Also just before this spin cycle, there is a louder than normal sound for ~10 sec. I have looked under and from the top but the hoses and clamps seem to be OK. Water is leaking under most of the washing machine - about a cup for each load. In the mean time I will try to find the owners manual. Diagnostics doesn't show anything is malfunctioning.

    Patience is a vertue when dealing with this or any washer. It is not that difficult to repair as long as you do not become frustrated. If you are purchasing a repair manual it should have a stepped guide thar you can follow.

Why won't fisher & paykel gwl11 fill cold water?

If the cold water only comes out at a trickle, you need to replace the valve. I have had to replace the hot and cold water valves on my washer every couple years.

Water will not shut off automatically. constant trickle. water turned off at main

You only have to change the water inlet valve of your washer. Actually it is quite easy; you have to search this site (fixya) for sites that sell spares, quoting your model and make. Make sure you dismantle the valve set and reset accordingly, note down. The spare usually comes with instructions.
If helped pl click so.

Drain hose has a constant drip with the washer empty.

Hi just read your posting.Now does the drain hose drip water when it is washing or when it is filling or all the time?Problem could be a stuck diverter.This component recirculates the wash water .Please look under the machine to the front right.You should see a red or black fan, this is your pump.On the black pipe which is the drain hose you should see a small component with 2 wires to it,this is the diverter.Please reply to confirm the style of pump and diverter and I can guide you throe the next stage of testing for this fault.Looking forward to your reply.

After several loads, the drip stopped. I'd guess a valve was not closing completely.
