The pump is located under the machine,Look for the plastic fan.Also to remove it is easy.Unplug the the earth and power plugs,And there is a plastic lock that has to be held out while turning the pump anti clockwise and it will drop out.Hope this helps.

I have fisher paykel GW611 making a terrible squeaking sound when washing. It seems to be coming from under the white plastic fan like thing under the machine. Need help to get it off Thanks

Go to and enter GW611. You will see a list of common replacement parts and may be able to view a video showing disassembly of a generic F & P washing machine.

Fisher & Paykel GW611 Excellence does not pump water out. All lights are on and when it is suppose to pump, you can hear the noise, but no water coming out of the hose!

It sounds like the drain pump or the diverter valve is restricted. Check to make sure that the drain hose is clear then disconnect power and lay the machine's front on a padded surface to access the drain pump and the diverter valve at the bottom of the tub. Remove the pump's inlet and outlet hoses then check and clear from any debris that may prevent water from draining out. Check the impeller for any damage or restriction.

Check the diverter valve for the same condition as the pump described above. T
he diverter valve is where the drain pump and the recirculation pump inlet hoses are attached from. Make sure the valve is in the drain position while the drain pump is working. Replace the drain pump and/or the diverter valve if deemed necessary.

I have lost my instruction manual. It is Fisher & Paykel model GW611 I want to know how to turn off favorites and reprogram it in again

From what I can tell, GW611 is an Ecosmart:

There are a few different Ecosmart manuals on the Fisher & Paykel website, so you might be able to find one that matches the button shapes you have. They all seem to have the same Favorite instructions:

To set your Favorite Cycle

1. Press the POWER Button.

2. Press the FAVORITE cycle button. Hold down for 4 seconds until you hear two quick beeps and the Favorite light flashes.

3. Select your favorite cycle (eg Regular or Delicate).

4. Select the wash options (eg soak, time saver). Use Advance if you want part of a cycle (eg spin only).

5. Press FAVORITE again to store your favorite cycle.

Note: Your Ecosmart will remember your favorite cycle, or any other cycle that has been customized, even when unplugged from the wall. It is not possible to program a delayed start into the Favorite cycle.

Model GW611 the first and second last led flashes. fills up and wont go into wash cycle

If by first led you mean green to the left & amber to the right then that is fault code (130) & i think it is (Rotor Position Sensor) If you meant first to the right that would be red & green, code that doesn't sound right.its 130 & im sure thats rotor sensor.
