Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer
On those washers the waste water pump will get hair and **** wrapped around the shaft behind the pump fins. pull the washer forward and tip it back so you have access to under the front. on the right fron you will see a little pump. unplug the power clip and the ground wire. there will be a plastic tab you must bend a little so that you can twist the whole motor, not just the fin on the back, counter clockwise and remove. if you have water in the machine it will come pouring out. your machine will not rinse or spin if the waste water pump does not pump out enough water in its alloted time. when you have the motor out unscrew the pump fin cup thing and pull all the stuff off the pump. good luck.

ALL WASHERS HAVE A LOADING DOOR SAFTEY SWITCH ... THEY ARE THER TO PREVENT CHILDREN FROM STICKING THERE HAND IN THERE WHEN THE WASHER IS IN THE AGITATING OR SPIN CYCLE. WHEN THEY GO BAD OR STICK, THE WASHER WILL FILL AND THATS ALL ... THESE SWITCHES ARE USUALLY INEXPENSIVE BUT CAN BE A REAL PAIN WHEN THEY GO BAD. START THE WASHER WITHOUT CLOTHES IN IT AND LET IT FILL ... OPEN THE LOADING DOOR AND SEE IF YOU SEE A SMALL HOLE AROUND THE INSIDE OF THE LID OF THE WASHER ... NOT ON THE DOOR. IF YOU FIND IT ... TRY STICKING A SMALL UNBREAKABLE OBJECT THAT WIIL FIT INTO THE HOLE. MAKE SURE YOU WILL NOT LOSE GRIP OF THIS OBJECT FAND HAVE IT FALL INTO THE HOLE. THEN GENTLY PUSH DOWN ON THE SWITCH BELOW A COUPLE OF TIMES AND SEE IF IT WILL BEGIN TO AGITATE ... SOME NEWER MODELS HAVE THE SAETY SWITCH BUILT INTO THE HINGE ON THE DOOR. THESE SWITCHES ARE NOT EXPENSIVE SO DONT GET RIPPED OFF.
