Fisher Paykel washer

LDS47June 4, 2014

My Fisher Paykel GWL11 washer is making a bumping/thumping sound during the wash cycle. Also I have heard a screeching sound one time. Does anyone have suggestions as to the problem and repair?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Screeching is usually the drain pump going bad. Crucial that it be replaced quickly. A bad pump can short-out and destroy the motor controller board.

Your bumping/thumping description is somewhat vague. Wash cycle means during agitation? Not during spin? That's unusual.

There's a bias spring that attaches from the tub cover to the front/left suspension strut and functions to limit rotary motion of the tub during agitation, and also stabilize oscillation. Perhaps it has become detached or broken.

The four spring-dampened suspension struts are also a fairly common wear/failure point ... but that would usually cause excess vibration/oscillation during spin moreso than agitation.
