Hi, welcome to FixYa.
Going by the fact that you said this happened after a move, I can suggest a couple things it might be-
1. This may sound too simple, but make sure that you don't have the fill hoses reversed (hot to cold and cold to hot) as this machine has a thermistor to sense water temp and it will fault out (That's the beep/lights) if this is the case.
2. You may have the drain hose shoved too far down in the drain or standpipe and getting a siphon condition.
3. You may have damaged the machine's "Out of balance" switch in the process of moving.

Look underneath the control panel for the "tech sheet" for that washer. it will have a "code matrix" which will pretty much tell you what the beeping and lights mean. For example one of the codes is relative to the hot/cold water.

If the tech sheet is not there, let me know, I can find one and post a link to it.

Hope this info is useful to you...

Fisher and Paykel washing machine fills and won't stop filling...

If the water stops when you shut if off at the wall you have a bad cold inlet valve, or the valve is getting a constant "open" command from the controller and thus the controller is faulty.

I have one and they are right. Both the drum and the agitator turn so that the clothes are not beaten up.
Also the electronic motor control is fully variable speed. It will go as slow as! Dial up for wollens and it almost massages them. The cycle time is 1/3rd of a front loader.
