SOURCE: GWL-11 Fisher Paykel wont turn on and water on the floor

Look at my issue "eco smart won't drain, smells hot". Mine is top load.

If you see puddle on floor and eventually won't run at all and smell electric burn motor, it could be same issue I had.

Unplug washer. Tip washer back. If you see water dripping through the black motor area, you need to remove the black motor and the white plastic unit above it. Look for a white plastic clip that is attached to bottom of washing machine. Push that clip with your finger and twist the whole plastic unit/black motor. It all comes off in one piece.

Look on side of this unit and you will see 120V or 240V. Mine is GWL10US and is older model. Was told by repairman that new units use 120V. That is what you need to order. It comes as one piece and you just twist it back on. I had done most of this. Repairman came and 5 seconds cost me $65.

Hi and welcome to FixYa!
Some things to check- Start with the water pump underneath the machine in the right-front of the unit. Look for signs of rust or leakage, that would be the most likely cause. Also check the operation of the diverter valve, inspect it to make sure there is not something like a lint ball or small object caught in the flapper; this can allow water to seep out of the diverter when it is supposed to be sealed in the spin or drain cycles and this seepage will get on the tub's rim as it spins and cause a leak on the floor. This kind of leak will cause water to appear as if it is leaking between the top and the cabinet.

Word of caution- the water pump is electric, and if you allow this leaking to continue, it can actually short out boh the water pump as well as the machine control.

If afer you solve the issue, if you find that I have accurately described the problem, a FIXYA rating is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

SOURCE: During the rinse cycle, our GWL 11 Fisher & Paykel

The problem is in the pump, so it will not pump out, you will need to find another way to empty it, removing the agitator will make the job easier.
When you get the water out the pump can be accessed from underneath, it turns anticlockwise to remove it,.
I would buy a new pump as it is most likely that is all that is wrong with it.

Replace fisher paykel iwl 16 mother board with gwl 11 motherboard

I cannot find your mothers IWL16 model, but I have found various similar machines that are the same phase as your GWL11 machine, the electronics in there although different are compatible, you can swap the drain pumps, there almost universal, avoid the drive shaft machine, fix the other one If you want further help, post a photo of both pcb's (the electronics) After swapping your machine will stil require programming which is simple enough

How to get to pump gwl 11

The pump is at the bottom of the machine, remove the bottom front inspection plate held in by 4 plastic screws, remove the plug from the wall and with a torch you should be able to see the belt and the pump. To test the pump remove the belt and turn by hand, if cannot do, you have a jammed pump and possibly a cooked electronics board. You can easily examine the pump.

Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer won't drain

Could be something in the pump. The pump is on the bottom of the tub.
It has a locking tab which you release and then twist the pump a hair and it will fall out. Warning: Have rags ready! I have the original GWL service manual and the GWL 11 supplimental manual. Let me know if you want them.
