My F&P GWL11 sounds like it's draining but is not. When I open the lid upon the spin cycle, the washer is filling up with more water. This washer is only 2 years old...could it be the drain pump already?

Check door switch: If
the lid switch is bad it will not drain or spin. Try this test: With lid open
let it finish wash cycle. Press lid switch down with screwdriver. Washer should
draining. Release switch. Motor
should stop. Press switch a second time.
Washer should start spinning as it continues to drain. If motor doesn't come on
while lid switch is pressed, replace the switch. OR http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q942xn_2VXY Pl click if helped.
put the timer on spin,open the lid,with a screw driver push down on the lid switch,if the washer starts to spin and drain the lid switch is bad,also if nothing happens,lift up and push down on the switch if you don't hear a clicking sound the switch is bad,all it is is a safety so the washer won't run with the lid open.part number 3949247 and the lid switch is around 40 dollars,
Could be either a bad lid switch or a bad water valve. Set the timer dial to SPIN and turn the machine on. If it spins the lid switch is OK. If it does not spin the lid switch must be replaced. Next,set the timer dial on a wash cycle and set the water temperature knob to COLD water. If it fills,the lid switch is bad. If it does not fill the water valve is bad or the cold screen filter is clogged. If the COLD does not fill,turn off the cold water faucet. Remove the cold water hose from the machine water valve and check for a clooged screen. If it does not fill with COLD water and the screen is clear,replace the water valve.
A Clothes Washer with the complaint of "Fills, Agitates, But Does not Drain or Spin" can be:
Defective Door/Lid Switch(Very Common): The lid-switch "that clicking sound you may hear when opening/shutting the door" can become defective after constant "slamming or dropping" or the door. This switch is a relatively simple repair. The lid switch can be located on the inside top of the machine and can be typically removed by (2) screws and un-plugging the electrical from the inside. The lid-switch costs about $15 or so for the part.
Drive-Belt or Coupling (Common) - You may have either a belt or coupling that may connect to the motor, transmission (pulley) and pump (on direct-drive machines). The belt and coupling is the driving force that engages your tub to spin and drain. Typically, upon receiving power from the lid-switch at beginning of rinse cycle, the "drive-train" (motor, transmission and water-pump) is "kick into action". Belt-Drive Machines: The belt is fairly simple to replace and runs about $20 or so. The belts circles and inter-connects with the Transmission Pulley, Motor Pulley or even with the Water Pump Pulley (Metal Cylinder type with belt groove). Direct-Drive Machines: The coupling runs about $10 or so is a little more complicated to repair. The coupling is a total of (3) small - inter-locking plastic components located and attached between the motor (mounted to shaft) and transmission (mounted to shaft) and enables the transmission to spin, upon motor receiving power.
