Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer
Drain the Bowl. This can either be done using the pump or emptying the bowl manually.
If there is a service hatch (Phase 1-4). Remove the front inspection panel by inserting a screw driver into the slot and turn anticlockwise 1/8 of a turn.
Pull outwards and remove. Flick starting the pump. Advance to SPIN and attempt to flick start the fan on the pump motor. This may alleviate the need to drain manually.
Check for foreign object by inspecting from above. Removing pump hood, cap and impeller.
Check for obstructed drain hose. Other Checks--
• Check pump hood, cap and impeller are the latest type.
• If the product is 5kg size, then check that a rain shield is fitted to the pump.
• Check that the four bolts securing the pump bracket are tight, torque 3 Nm.
• If the screw locating the pump hood is loose, torque 3 Nm, this can cause pump block error.
To remove the pump, turn it towards the front of Smartdrive until the locking tab prevents further turning, then release the locking tab by pulling it away from the pump. Continue to turn, the pump will disengage. When refitting the pump, making sure that the bayonet fixture is located correctly. Twist the pump away from the front of Smartdrive until the locking tab clicks into place.
NB: Approximately 1 litre of water remains in the pump sump after pump out and can spill out when the pump is removed. However by tilting Smartdrive past 45 degrees and blowing down the drain hose this can be alleviated. There is 230V AC at the pump terminals the whole time Smartdrive is switched on at the power point. Hope this helps... If it does please do not forget to accept the solution or post back for assistance.
