Question about Fisher and Paykel (IWL12)
Your cold water valve has failed and needs replacing, quite an easy fix. To get to it first unplug from wall, next remove water hoses from the machine, next lift the lid up and then just pull it off, next remove the two Phillips head screws at the of the rear of display console, lift off then unplug from motor controller, valves are now visible and are the parts which the water hoses where removed from, if they are blue in colour you will need to replace both hot and cold valves as the blue ones are a single unit but if they are white in colour you can replace the one that is not working as they are separate units. When removing the valves it will pay to cover the brown motor controller computer with a towel so as not to accidently get any water in it when removing as they do tend to hold a little abit inside. You can source parts from fisher & paykel you will need to quote the model number which is GW612 and the serial number aswell with that model as there can possibly be two types of valve available for that model, so keep them numbers handy when ringing them. Make sure you have display console fitted first aswell when putting it back together before fitting the water hoses just to make sure you don't accidently get any water on main computer board as this will kill it completely.

I had the same problem.... It would stop on the rinse cycle and beep. Check to make sure you can hear the water pump running or if you can just hear an electrical hum and then it quits, it may be a problem with the water pump.The water pump can be accessed by removing the tub, reach down the center of the agitator and remove plastic bolt, remove the stailess steel tub and then remove the plastic oval shaped cover at the bottom of the main tub to access the pump impellor. Make sure the impellor turns freely, if it does not you may have a problem with the pump motor. We had a gold chain go missing and it showed up wrapped around the pump shaft causing it to bind at times. It took me two tries to fix it but now it runs 100%.

SOURCE: Fisher & Paykel smart drive
The small leak may have been enough to blow the fuse under the control panel.
I had the same trouble with my F&P smartdrive 701.
Take off the control panel by undoing 2 screws and you will see the blue plastic control box in the tray on the machine (not the other blue circuit board box under the push buttons). Open the control box (1 screw and click open) to see an ordinary fuse. Hopefully this is blown and the new fuse, a clean up of leaking water, and some plumber's thread tape on the hose connector to stop future leaks, and you should be up and running.
If it works - give a small donation to your favourite charity!

That fault is the pump blocked error (no change in water level).
i have a quick and easy way to solve this problem.
first turn the machine off then tilt the machine back and lean it on something(a chair or wall), look underneath, in the top right hand corner of the plastic outer boul you will see a small pump motor it has a fan on it spin this fan and if it is hard to turn that means there is somthing stuck in the drain pump keep turning the fan and try to free whatever is stuck in the pump, then try the machine on spin again all goin well the object in the pump should come out with the drain water(doing this will not harm the machine) if the object is still stuck you will need to get the water out of the machine (bailing or siphioning will work) and tilt the machine back again and take the wires off the pump and there should be a white tab on the boul holding the pump on pull this tab and twist the pump anticlockwise about a quarter turn(you will need a few towels or a boul or bucket to catch the water) and it should come off exposing the blockage.
Hope this solves your Problem.
