Mom's Fisher Paykel washer has developed a squeal very much like the one in this vid. Except, mom's does this after it has finished draining and the pump is running dry, I guess it needs replacement... Any idea where I can get a new pump? How much?

Sears Appliance Parts carries F&P parts. Online at (yes, the 3 included is correct), or check the web site for a phone number if you'd rather call. I just happened to look there within the last couple days, a pump costs a touch less than $50.

Pull the pump for an examination. Could be there's some lint/strings/debris wrapped around the impeller causing the trouble. Tip the machine back (careful of the water hoses connected at back of the console, don't put excess stress on them and snap off the water valve!). If construction is the same as my older GWL08, the pump comes off *without* needing any tools (except maybe pliers to pull the wiring connector if it's ornery to let go). Look for a finger-latch. Lift the latch, and the pump body rotates to disengage from its mounting bracket. There'll be some water left in the sump so have some towels at the ready.

Quite likely !

Yup, you've definitely gotten something trapped in the pump.

Where's the filter on these top loading machines with recirculation pumps?

Glennn will have to enlighten us on the FP and the Calypso
but the calypso has this:

Force Filter Wash/Rinse System
This washer filters 100% of the wash and rinse water. The water
is filtered then recirculated. The force filter traps sand and dirt,
flushing it down the drain, so it is not redeposited on the clean

How it works is anybodys guess as I pull chunks of lint out of the pseudo FF flume all of the time
