Hi Mario,

The fluid in the top and bottom rings is in there to balance the tub. Do not try and remove it. They are called balance rings.

I've got Fisher and Paykel Excellence Top loader 7.5 My problem is, it won't unload or drain water. What do i have to do?


Hi, The washer wont unload or drain water until the drain pump is working. Get the pump off and look for debris. To remove the pump you unlock the tab and twist the pump a hair. The pump is on the bottom of tub.

Fisher & Paykel GWL10 question to Rescue Tech


First scoop out the water or run the pump in diagnostics mode and use a pitcher to bail out the water as it flows from the recirculation hose. Next, tip the machine back enough so that you can set something like a gallon paint can or other sturdy object under the front left corner of the machine to keep it propped up while you work under it. These machines are actually very lightweight. You do not remove the tub to service the diverter. There is a single 3/8" hex head bolt (which also is recessed with a phillips head) that secures the diverter to the base via a white nylon band. Remove the bolt, then remove the band, which is actually wrapped around the drain hose . Now remove the two wires, and the three hose clamps and all three hoses. Pop the valve out and take a close look at that diverter, if it is broken at the tab, this will be obvious.

The diverter is part number 426862P. You can order one here:

I have a gwl10 and during the wash cycle there is water coming in but the drain pump keeps running during the fill cycle.


The pump itself is supposed to run during the fill portion of the REGULAR cycle. It is supposed to be mixing the incoming fresh water with your laundry detergent and pouring the solution on your clothes as the tub rotates slowly. If the water is draining out of the machine, then there has been some sort of issue with the DIVERTER VALVE. It either has a broken lever on it or an object has become wedged in it, holding it open all the time. If you try the PERMA PRESS cycle, you will probably find that cycle will work, as it does not use the recirculate function.

I would check the diverter valve first. You can tip the washer back and remove the hose clamps with no tools and shine a light up inside and look for an object. You also can inspect the lever and will clearly see if it is broken.

If the washer needs a diverter valve, the part number is a 426862P and is easy to change. You can get them from Fisher Paykel Parts:
http://www.fisherpaykelparts.net/111-4/Diverter-Valve-GWL10-11-15.php

They also have downloadable service manuals (but I have pretty much told you what you need here)
Here is the GWL10 manual:

Fisher paykel gwl10us wont fill


Both of you most likely are getting a "RPS Sensor Fault"
On a GWL10, when the motor rotor position sensor fails, it will act exactly like you describe. Many techs incorrectly replace the machine control or the water inlet valve(s). The RPS sensor is much cheaper. If you consult the tech sheet located under the control panel, you will see the fault code for RPS failure and I would bet the farm that the sequence of LEDs displayed when your washer faults out matches exactly with the RPS fault code.

The RPS sensor for GWL10 and GWL11 models is a part # 420296P and canbe purchased direct from Fisher Paykel Parts:
http://fisherpaykelparts.net/index.php?categoryid=111&productid=5

The procedure to replace it is a little involved but a handy person can do it. It would be best to consult the factory service manual and again, that can be purchased from Fisher Paykel Parts direct here:

Fisher and Paykel Washer Leaking


For those with water on floor after wash, check my post on "eco smart won't drain, smells hot". It could be something clogging drainage area at very bottom of the tub. I couldn't see the sock that was stuck in my FP's drain when I looked from the top between the white outer tub and the wash tub--everything looked fine. Then I removed the black motor/white plastic housing piece--Tip back washer and you should see this black electric motor/white housing on bottom. see my post for how to remove and check for plugged drain. it's really pretty easy.

don't know about outer tub holes, but glad i don't have that problem.

i hate my fisher paykel washer/dryer. i can't wait to sell this house--i will leave them here and get a new front load Duette for my next house!

Fisher & Paykel GWL10 US won't spin


If the machine still has water in it, the drain pump is jammed or there may be an obstrution in one of the hoses. It is most likely the drain pump. Switch off the machine at the wall and unplug it. Tilt machine against a wall and look underneath. On the right you will see the drain pump. It looks upside down. Unplug the wiring harness to the pump and remove pump by turning it clockwise while at the same time releasing the little white clip that holds the pump in place. Clean thoroughly and replace pump.
