Testimonial: "I followed your instructions and now I’m just putting my machine through a cycle so far so good, I’m from Australia ???? and our closest repair person is a couple of hours away, so as you can imagine he charges an arm and leg to look at it. And that’s before he even puts parts and more labor on to his bill. So you have saved me heaps thank you so much ??"

not familliar with that exact model number ( we dont have that over here in the US) we have simalair f&p gwl10- gwl11) that problem sounds as if either the pump is bad and overheating before pumping all the water or a diverter valve is not fully closing allowing water to remain in tub.

SOURCE: Fisher and Paykel Dryer will not spin, motor buzzing

take top off. set it going and give the drum a push by hand. if it starts and keeps going then the fault is the motor capacitor - cheap part

Unplug the machine have someone tilt the machine back and look under the machine for a little fan on a motor give it a turn to see if it spins it might just be sticky or it may need replacing.

SOURCE: My Model GW712 won't spin or drain Top loader

hi there the first thing ill tell you is that the washer needs to drain water before it can spin there are only a few factors that prohibit this operation a faulty lid switch secound a blown or blocked water pump being a fisher paykel they are famous for jammed water pumps as they decided when they built the sysyem to turn the water pump upside down this causes a lot of stress on the water pump see if you can lay the hose on the ground and get all the water out i belive the machine will then start to spin dry. in this case it is the water pump and have it replaced its a simple operation if you can order the part fromf/p you simply turn the washer on its side depress the white latch next to the pump turn the pump clockwise till ity release from machine disconnect power supply plug and fit new unit as per reverse

I have a fisher and paykel top loader 10 kg but not spinning and make that humming noise when it's on spin cycle, water drains slowly.....please help


sounds like theirs a large blockage in the drain pump housing, the drain pump is just twist locked onto the bottom so you just lift the little white lock clip then twist the pump and it will come off and you will be able to see inside the housing and clear the blockage

Fisher and paykel washing machine top loader doesnt spin dry the clothes well. There isnt any water in the machine after the spin cycle but the clothes are heavy wet. What's could cause this?


Machine not spinning. Have you stood next to machine and listened? When all water is drained out (watch the drain hose for water to stop) then you should hear the spin start and hear it building up speed. If it doesn't then you need to post back here with more detail on what you could hear or see happening. i.e. how long after water stopped draining did machine finish and switch off?
