Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Pump source??? Hey there, Topram. Where did you ever find any part for a F/P GWL11 for $30.00??? I'm having the same problem with the high pitch sqeal and the water just dribbles into the tub. The dealer who sold it to me said it would be a $100 service call & $105 for the part. I evenwent online looking for the valve and they wanted $100 + tax + shipping, etc. Any assistance is appreciated.

Hi. I suspect the solenoid valve could be the issue here (not opening). turn off your machine (unplug it) and open the control panel and remove the solenoid in question. you could try washing the solenoid valve out and opening it by applying power to it directly a few times. I have also used some electronic cleaning spray before to get these going. If you have a multimeter you can measure the coil of the solenoid (select ohms on your meter) to see if it has failed altogether, you should see a reading in ohms, if you dont, try selecting a higher range on your meter. check against another working solenoid to see if the value of resistance (ohms) is similar (ie check the reading of resistance on the hot water solenoid).

Washer makes high pitched noise after draining

This is due to the fact that the draim pump is still running DRY and so makes the high pitch noise. Check the timer or reset to a low spin dry cycle. If not check the drain circuit power using a multimeter from the program controller unit.IF there is power and the motor makes noise then remove and check if the pump is clogged, clean and reset.

A high pitched whine, sounds like it needs oil? Does it - or grease somewhere?

No grease //but the pumps tend to make a high pitched sound when getting bad/I have seen them do that then the sound disappear but most likely the pump is bad or somthing in it..If you need more info please ask.......if i helped you please vote and good luck.

The machine will not agitate, before it stopped it made a high pitch noise off and on and cannot turn the tub

Is this a top loader? Something jamming the under side of the agitator? Remove it to check. If the shaft that drives the agitator is frozen--may be bad bearings (and the source of the noise). If a front loader, the tub main bearing is probably frozen, again the probable source of the noise or maybe the drive belt was slipping.
