Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer
It is very common for the drain or drain screen to become plugged. It is not as rare but is very possible that something has gotten lodged in the pump and could block it from spinning. Most often the drain or the screen is plugged.

Tips for a great answer:
Hi - I understand you will like to know where to find pump and check for clogs. Try the following steps below and hope it is helpful:
To completely clear any clogs in the washing machine drain you will use a pipe auger (snake). Start at the roof plumbing vent and drop cable to roughly 10 or 15 feet past the actual drain. If there is a clog present, the snake will bring up a chunk of debris. Remove it from the top of the vent and discard.
The drain hose is visible toward the bottom of this washing machine. It is held in place by a clamp or a couple of screws.
Remove the drain hose from the back of the washing machine. This is normally held in place by a clamp or a couple of screws. When a drain backup occurs, pieces of debris can lodge in the hose, causing clogs and odors.
Soak the hose in a bucket of warm bleach water.
Soak the drain hose in a bucket of warm water mixed with 1 cup of bleach. Look to see if the line is free of obstructions. Run a small length of clothes hanger through the hose to clear any hard debris.
Reattach drain hose and connect to drain pipe.
Reattach the drain hose using a screwdriver or pliers. Insert the hose into the washing machine drain. Be sure it is all the way into the drain opening.
Run the washer through a full cycle with 2 cups of bleach added.
Cycle the washer with warm water and 2 cups of bleach. The bleach will help remove any odor-causing particles in the machine and drain hose. Running the washing machine through a cycle will help flush away any remnants of the drain pipe clog.
