We had a similar problem. I unplugged the machine for a few minutes. When I plugged it back in it started to spin. BUT! I it was a reacurring event. once I got the water to drain I follow the advice given by another on this site. Checked the drain pump, it was blocked by some quarters and towel lint. The machine has been working for the past 5 months without any problems.

Some appliances malfunction can be displayed in hexadecimal or in binary code.
So your device is defective and shows you what's wrong. You have to count how many times flashes red light and how many times flashes green light. Red light shows the first error number and green light the second error number. For example: you forgot to close the door and you started washing machine. After some time (timeout) will generate an alarm. Four times will flash red light and once the green light which means error code " E41 " or "Open door"
" E20 " means "No drain water"
" E10 " means "No fill up water"
When you start your machine is the water just go stop go stop, Just wait for the machine to display an error code on the wash progress lights and beeps constantly. It could be the Rotor Position Sensor, out of balance switch or lid magnetic reed switch. Your error code will determine this. Is your machine beeping & showing a weird pattern of lights on the wash cycle, It is displaying an error code,
To read this error code you start at the red spin light & work to the left only add up the lights that are on.
Red spin light = 1
2nd rinse light =2
1st rinse light =4
last wash light=8
4th wash light=16
3rd wash light=32
2nd wash light=64
1st wash light=128
"PF" flashes if the washer loses power during a running cycle. The washer does not flash "PF" when it is first plugged in.
Press START to continue the cycle from the moment that power was lost
Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display and completely cancel the cycle.
One looses touch with all the codes available, but normally if washer stops mid cycle its due to a blocked or faulty drain pump. OR incomming water is to slow or defective inlet sensor. Switch off and start from the beginning. See if you can get machine to drain by moving the timer etc. If not, rectify pump problem. Take note where in the cycle the problem arises.
If your machine is a FAV6800A to FAV9800A here is the Service Manual. If it one of those machines I suspect a possible clutch malfunction. See this postfor what is involved to do clutch maintenance or replacement.
Do you have any error codes to the display if it's a FAV6800A such as dC or uC unbalance codes.Is the wash tub banging around on Spin Cycle of the Wash Cycle? ……Rich
Tom, I'm having exactly the same problem, Have you managed to solve it? The Service center will no even tell me what's wrong with (they're quite keen to get me to arrange a visit from their engineer for £110 though).
