Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer

Water wont drain from tub after rinse cycle.

My washer goes through a complete cycle nearly but stops at the end of the rinse cycle and wont drain the water out. I have to manually drain the water and then ringe the clothes by hand. I have had this washer for 8 years and never had a problem. The touch control panel is still active and I have been told that its not the motor because the lights and panel are still ok.. Any suggestions.

    Washer will not go rinse cycle, it washes thoroughly and stops and the water doesn't drain and refill for rinsing. I have check all drains for plugs by taking all drain hoses loose and reconnecting...tried again and no luckit stops after washing and before the rinse cycle...It's act as though the lid is up...how can I check the lid sensor and know if that's my problem.

    Our washer keeps stopping and beeping during the rinse cycle. I take for ever to wash one load. I believe it is doing it because during the fast rinse spin the whole washer shakes and the inner basket keeps hitting the inside of the washer. How do I tighten the basket so it is not so loose?

It's the diverter valve, no doubt about it. It's almost a miracle that it took 8 years for it to go out. Mine went out after 2. The repair guy said to go ahead and buy a couple just to have on-hand. Very common for these washers. Buy one directly from Fisher Paykel and you won't get screwed. It's, I think, $17.00.

You need to un-plug the machine, tilt the machine back and remove the drain pump from underneath and chech for a blockage. To remove the drain pump pull the wires off it then turn it like a light bulb while pushing the small white lock clip away from pump top.

We had a similar problem. Fault code 37, with 'too many suds' warnings before this. Then, it simply did not rinse or spin at the end of the wash cycle.

We emptied the washer & drained as much water as possible. Then flip the machine onto its side and unhook the drainage pipes one by one on the underneath of the machine, looking for accumulated 'gunk' or other blockage. Re attached each pipe after checking. We found the blockage to be a 2-3 inch plug of old fluff that had got wet and over time blocked one of the drainage pipes. Picked it out with a pair of tweezers & bingo, she's good to go again.

Good luck.

I am 99% positive it is just a blocked pump, yes diverter valves do stop working and get blocked but only ECO models have diverter valves. So in this case am positive you got something in the pump.

the pump is located on the under side of the machine on the right hand side. So remove the wiring and it has a clip so pull the clip back and give it a 3\4 turn and it will come off, remove obstruction and you should be all good :)

Same problem.

Removed the front setting panel, found a small clear plastic tube ( about 1/4'' in diameter ) which runs down along the side of the machine towards the bottom of the tub.
Disconnected tube, blew in to it and refitted.
Retested with a full wash load, all worked well.
