F&P GWL15--water inside base of tub?
We've been having some problems with our GWL15 washer (Fisher and Paykel) and, long story short, the fried part has been ordered and is on its way. In the meantime my husband has partly disassembled the washer (looking for debris, I suspect) and the part that we call the tub and may also be known as the "bowl" is sitting in our laundry room. Funny thing is, the base of this tub seems to be partly filled with water! Nothing leaks out of it if it's turned on its side, but you can hear the water sloshing around and gurgling like it's moving past a set of baffles.
Is this normal? I guess it would make sense for there to be some sort of ballast to be inside this otherwise very light tub, to smooth out minor imbalances. We don't see any way that the water, or whatever it is, could get into the bottom of this tub other than at the time of assembly--or for that matter, how we could let it out. But is this the way things should be?
