Question about Fisher and Paykel Washing Machines
Similar problem on my 701.
Unfortunately the dirt etc can now get through to the microswitch underneath which is part of the main circuit board. You can't replace just a switch and a new board is about $200.
Suggest you undo the 2 screws at the back of the whole plastic control panel and lift off.
This will expose the main circuit board in the blue plastic box. Carefully open the box and you can then inspect the "power" microswitch for damage.
If you're lucky just a clean up may work. If you know a hobby electronics friend, they might give it a more professional clean up.
After reassembling, try some sellotape or similar over the hole to stop future dirt.
Good luck. If this advice works, do me a favour in return and give a few dollars to your favourite charity.
