Fisher & Paykel Ecosmart washer GWL11 wont drain

23 March 2011 - 11:44 AM

My Fisher & Paykel Ecosmart washer (Model GWL11) didn't start washing clothes normally today. The basin on a medium load filled with water but instead of washing the clothes it just made a humming noise. I came back 20 minutes later and the machine was beeping - consistently and slowly - and the basin had not emptied. I moved some clothes around in the water - plenty of room - and nothing changed. I unplugged it and waited 60 seconds and plugged it back in. Beeping again and Wash, Rinse & Spin LEDs are lit. Unit is currently unplugged and full of water. Interestingly a couple weeks ago I noticed a little water omn the floor, but that could have been due to an over filled tub - too many clothes.

I've read a lot about the diverter valve but I'm not sure if it's that, the pump, or the spinning cycle not engaging. I thought I'd post here and then try the diagnostics process if I didn't hear back, but I'm not totally confident in my "technician/repairman" skills.
