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).

When i turn the power on there is a high pitch sqeal and ozone smell. then the power goes off

If there is an ozone smell, that usually indicates arching high voltage which should also be visible through the back cover vents (or back cover removal-better yet) if arching (blue sparking) is observed it is usually on the left side -back - rear and is likely the flyback transformer that has a crack in the casing - check there first- if the source of arching is identified post back here with details.Caution since High voltage is present.

High pitch sqealing noise

This is caused be a bad record switch. As a temporary solution, incert a blank tape, push the record switch, then stop. Repeat about 10 times. This may clean the contacts of the record/Play switch but it will probably need to be replaced.
