You can do it. tilt the washer backwards about 45 degrees enough where you can work on it. its on the left hand side unscrew it 2 screws and remove the harnes and the hose. water always sits on pumps so dont ge wet.

I have a Fisher and Paykel MW511 but the water will not pump out can anyone help?

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. You need to check all of your drain hoses and make sure none of them are clogged. There are many items or articles of clothing that can block the hoses. You also need to check the water pump located inside the washer also. This is what pumps the water out of the tub. It may not be working or it may be clogged also. You can get inside the washer on the back panel or by taking off the control piece, depends which wahser this is. That is where you need to check. Hope this helps.

My Model GW712 won't spin or drain Top loader fisher & paykel

hi there the first thing ill tell you is that the washer needs to drain water before it can spin there are only a few factors that prohibit this operation a faulty lid switch secound a blown or blocked water pump being a fisher paykel they are famous for jammed water pumps as they decided when they built the sysyem to turn the water pump upside down this causes a lot of stress on the water pump see if you can lay the hose on the ground and get all the water out i belive the machine will then start to spin dry. in this case it is the water pump and have it replaced its a simple operation if you can order the part fromf/p you simply turn the washer on its side depress the white latch next to the pump turn the pump clockwise till ity release from machine disconnect power supply plug and fit new unit as per reverse

best of luck

According to my experience it sounds the your pump is blocked or outlet of water obstructed.
Normally when pump cant be activated you get this problem.

Fisher paykel empties as it fills (similiar to recent entry)

Check your drain hose behind the machine. This should be approx 3 feet from ground level; then into the wall standpipe. The fix behind should not be air-tight. Your pump pumps the water 'over' this height. This may be silly.....but just check.

& rate if helped pl....................or 'thanks for trying' & your prob will be back here on the net for further solutions by anyone else.

If your washer does not stop filling, you have a problem with your inlet water valve at the rear top of the machine. You simply have to replace this.
