Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer
Stop using the machine unless you have checked the pump and make sure it is not leaking. The leak is likely coming from the pump and it may result it to short out as may be indicated by the burning smell and its failure to pump out water. Short circuit in the pump will eventually lead to a much much bigger problem which is the burning out of the motor controller module.
Drain water manually by gravity into a bucket or shallow basin but enough to hold the water from the machine. Once completely drained, lay the machine on its front on a cushioned floor to access and check the pump. Replace the pump if leaking or if there's any sign of electrical failure.

You may continue communicating with the expert as long as you need assistance regarding the issue stated herein.

the pump is located at the base on the unit.
To access the pump:
Remove as much water in tub as possible using a sponge.
Move machine forward and tilt it on the front side.
The washing machine drain pump is one of the two motors at the base of the unit (the one at right hand side).
The pump is connected to two hoses, disconnect both and collect water with a container, then remove any blockage.
Before accessing the pump check the drain hose at the back.
Observe all health and safety basics. If you are not sure about what you are doing call a technician ringing the service number available in manual.
