    Exclamation Gwl10 powers down

    Our 15 year old GWL10 worked fine up to a few days ago when it just powered down at the beginning of a wash cycle when filling. I could get it to continue the cycle for short periods (generally 2 -3 minutes ) by unplugging the wire, waiting a couple of minutes and plugging it back in. The cycle would resume where it had powered down for a short period then power down again. I finally advanced it to the spin cycle until it had drained completely and beeped signaling it had finished the cycle. After reading a number of the posts on the internet, I disconnected the pump and hose but did not find any blockage. I did find water stains on the pump and floor so it had been leaking slightly which I think I solved with silicone grease around the shaft and seal. But it's still doing the same power down thing as before. It is not giving me any codes. Any help would be much appreciated.

    As has been noted in other responses, the water pump on a GWL10 is in line with the power supply to the control system. If the pump is overheating electrically, it will shut down and the rest of the machine will follow suit. You are describing a pump overheating. Try running the PERMANENT PRESS CYCLE as a test, and if it takes all the way to the first rinse before the machine shuts down, you have a failing water pump.

    Thanks.
