Most likely cause is reduced water flow to machine. This could be because the filter on the inlet valve is partialy blocked or because the inlet valve is faulty. Check the valves where the hoses screw onto the rear of the machine. You may also like to check the flow rate of the cold or hot water. Cold water inlet valve problems are not unusual for F&P washers. They can sound OK, but have weak flow..Good luck....Please take a moment and rate this answer.........Nomess

Gw11 stops mid cycle and beeps and lights 2 and 7 are lit up anybody know what the error code is

Is it model GWL11? There is no model GW11. On most other models that code indicates there is a fault in the water pressure transducer which measures the water level. Unfortunately the motor controller module needs to be replaced.

Hi just read your posting.In my experience the only part on a Fisher and Paykel top loader machine that creates a burning smell is the pump.Try looking under the machine and you will see a black fan.This is your pump.Check to see if it has corrosion on it with a torch and try smelling it.I am sure you will find it is the pump that is smelling.Please reply for additional help and tell me how you got on with checking the pump.Looking forward to your reply.

Have Fisher & Paykel washer GW11. 5 yrs old. Lid won't lock, Took off to repair, then put back on, no problem, but now won't lock, so won't spin. Help!

your door needs to be re-aligned so the wax motor assy can lock the door so the unit senses its locked and can continue the wash cycles

I have purchased a house with the single door dishwasher and it takes forever to wash - about two hours - what could be the problem?

Check your program settings. If wash quality is good, it's OK. Check your inlet water has sufficient pressure! Refer user manual

Have you got your dishwasher on an extended drying cycle?

Normally it works for about 10 minutes after the wash cycle is complete - not hours.
