Sounds like you could need a new out of balance switch or bracket, also try to make the clothes evenly spread in washing machine on rinse if they clump up on one side of the bowl they will cause out of balance :)

SOURCE: Fisher & Paykel washer GW712 won't spin

There is an issue with your drainage area. Best to remove the pump and check for the obstruction in the line or at the impellar.(If the water is not completely drained, the pressure switch wont send a low level to the timer to allow a spin).

SOURCE: iw712 fisher and paykel washer has fault code 37 w...

37 is drain error..There could be electronic reasons, but the most common problem is that there is a clogged pump or something is jammed in the pump impeller... Empty the machine of water and lean back against the wall so you can get access to pump, which is clipped to the bottom of the drum..Try turning the fan and see if the pump is blocked'/jammed.....Disconnect the wires and rotate the pump motor anticlockwise...It will be prevented from turning by a small plastic latch. Unlatch and remove pump motor...Remove any detritus and refit pump motor....If the motor resistance is less than 33 ohms (230volt) or 7ohms (110volt)..the pump motor itself might be the cause of the fault code, and should be replaced......This is a very simple job for a tech...Good luck....Nomess

SOURCE: Fisher Paykel Washer IWL 12 error codes 130 & 240

Had the same problem cleaned the terminals worked for a bit and came back. The problem is that the little circit board that the plug goes onto that sits between the winding of the motor the copper tracks are so small and they corrode. If you are handly with a solding iron you can replace the tracks with small wire, its mainly on one leg of each of the transistors that are all parrelled up. You can tell because it goes black. Or the easy way just take off the motor unpluging the sense plug then the three main power connectors Yellow, blue and red making sure you mark the correct order to put them back on. The sensor board just pulls out of the windings with a little arrow to but it back in the right place and buy the small board it has the part number on it to find it on the web. I only has three bits on it can't be expensive. Soldered mine up works a treat make sur you clean up the plug aswell, it mainly played up in humid weather.

Although slightly unclear these are the only possible error combinations for the leds on the machine as you look at it with red always on the end right hand side.

(11) 1011 (Green - nil - Orange - Red) - pressure problems perhaps a blockage in the tube to bowl.
(13) 1101 (Green-Orange-nil-Red) - pump is faulty
(15) 1111 (all lights on) - display module is faulty

I do not recall that the leds across the spin speed actually means something.

Good luck

Kate - firstly the windings of the stator when measured is 32 Ohms, earlier models was a lot lower between B-Y-R.

The washer will pump - rest pump (Cycles) during the spin cycle, if however it overheats then water will not be fully pumped out. A possibilty is the hose into the drain or sink is too high, or blocked somewhere.

In most cases the washer will indicate an error code.

The LEDS 1st & 4th from the right im assumming 10010000 = Fault code 144 - either you have a loose connection under the display/push buttons panel or you have a faulty motor control module

Or do you have the LCD display model that shows the error code.If your machine shows some light on the same line of lights, there are 8 in a row , which ones are lit? Is it the 2nd and 4th or 1st and 6th--etc .Also if you have the LCD display model what is the error code?Please reply for further help.Hope this helped.

FP GLW10spins but clothes are still wet and lights/beeping are on

Most likely your filter is blocked, check out where this is and clean out well. Second there could be block in your exit pump preventing the water from being pumped out. If possible call or see your dealer for help, but you could do the thing yourself. You can click on troubleshooting above in blue. There should be several solutions for your model. The washing machine companies do not tell you how to do these things, so they can send in their techs to make more money.

For new buyers - ASK WHERE THE FILTER IS, WHAT ARE THE VARIOUS CODES, SERVICE. Where is the tech sheet?
