Question about Fisher Paykel EcoSmart GWL15
When the washer enters a spinning mode,it gets to a certain speed and starts to make a clunking noise and shuts off. At first I though it was off balance but I dont think that it the problem. If I spin the basket by hand, it gets to a certain speed then it feels like something grabs it and stops it from spinning.
The clutch? Take out center of washer (only small bolt/screw ) , take out agitator, and lube up the hardware , check for broken parts, or overly worn out metal pieces. Run a normal cycle.
If still persists, take off front panel to washer for an engine inspection.

Press "end of cycle" for 5 seconds or more to clear the screen.
Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.
Rate me pl.....if helped.

For those with water on floor after wash, check my post on "eco smart won't drain, smells hot". It could be something clogging drainage area at very bottom of the tub. I couldn't see the sock that was stuck in my FP's drain when I looked from the top between the white outer tub and the wash tub--everything looked fine. Then I removed the black motor/white plastic housing piece--Tip back washer and you should see this black electric motor/white housing on bottom. see my post for how to remove and check for plugged drain. it's really pretty easy.
don't know about outer tub holes, but glad i don't have that problem.
i hate my fisher paykel washer/dryer. i can't wait to sell this house--i will leave them here and get a new front load Duette for my next house!

Check the water pump for an obstruction in the chamber area, your pump may be sticking and that will cause the buzzing sound. The water pump runs during the fill portion of the cycle on several of the selected wash cycles to recirculate the water.

Does the pump empty the machine, if not you may have a faulty pump, these have no protection againt water coming from above and regularly fail
