Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer
Our machine has the spray on the final spin to get rid of any last suds, but it sprays all over when it does this, not just down. I first noticed that when a load was finished the top of the molded plastic (above the tub) had a lot of water sprayed on it and some ran down the front of the machine. Then as it's progressed, it's getting water behind and underneath the machine as you wash more and more loads. My husband ran the final spin cycle to watch it and it's the spray that isn't quite right. I've called the local repair guy and he didn't like me because I had done some net research, I think. I tried to tell him that the water that sprays from the right side of the tub (I believe they told us this is where the water is mixed with the soap at the beginning of the washing cycle and distributed on all the clothes) that is spraying all over and he told me that my machine only has water that should come out of the back tube. I've had a service guy here before (not from the same place) and he watched the water come from two different hoses and didn't think anything of it so this guy just didn't like me and was disagreeing. My question is: Can the hose (the one that "recycles" the water within the machine become clogged and need cleaning or do we have to replace it? Is this what could be causing the spray to be not an even flow? Thank you!
THIS WILL BE SIMPLE =)
TIP THE MACHINE BACK SO YOU CAN LAY UNDER IT
TOWARDS THE BACK ON THE RIGHT THERE IS A DIVERTER VALVE YOU DONT EVEN NEED ANY TOOLS AS THE CLAMPS ARE FINGER CLAMS
THE DIVERTER WILL BE COVERD IN PLASTIC AND HAVE TWO WIRES GOING INTO IT (I BELIEVE ITS RED AS WELL)
MORE THAN LIKELY SOMETHING IS JAMBED IN THERE CAUSING IT TO BE PARTIALLY OPEN DURING THE SPIN CYCLE AND WATER IS COMING OUT ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE TUB(SPRAYING IN THE SHAPE OF A FAN) WHEN IT HITS THE TUB(WHICH WILL BE SPINNING VERY FAST) IT GETS THROWN ALL OVER THE CABINET
HOPE I MADE IT AS EASY AS IT SHOULD BE TO FIX

Please check if something is blocked near the top spray arm, also make sure that all holes are open. Use a sharp metal pin to clean the holes on the top spray arm. Make sure the water pressure is not low.
under the screen and you'll need a Torx screwdriver to get to it after you remove the spray arm and screen. Check to see that the path it travels is clear. I have seen these get blocked up by stuff.
Now check if the top arm spins freely and check the bearings for the arm, if they are producing extra friction while the spray arm spins. White film deposits are observed if water is hard or when you are using more detergent than needed, try filling detergent cup half way. Try using white vinegar after the wash cycle is complete, run a complete cycle. Also turn down the heat on the hot water fed to the dishwasher. Try using water softener for better results.
You can also add vinegar in the final rinse cycle. Make sure that your soap dispenser drawer is opening and closing fine.
Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more assistance.
