A few months ago my Fisher & Paykel GWL10 was not properly draining. I was able to get it to throw an error code and determined that the diverter valve wasn't working properly. I was able to drop the pump, clean it out, and everything was good in the world again.
Fast forward a few months, one of my children opened the lid of the machine while it was in the middle of its last spin cycle and the wash machine became seriously unhappy. It started by not turning on. We unplugged it, let it reset itself, but it never really worked quite right for the week after. Now it won't power on, won't throw an error code, and there is a low humming noise coming from the tub. I dropped the pump again, except this time it got wet and would trip the circuit when I plugged it in. I got the pump to dry out, the plug is hot, but we are back to won't power on, won't throw a code and low humming noise.
This machine is 13 years old. I am worried that it will be quite expensive to repair, even doing it myself, and wonder if it is throwing good money after bad. Is it worth trying to fix or should I go and buy a used Calypso from the rebuild shop I have been using for years for $250 and save myself the time and money of trying to fix this?
