Look at my issue on "eco smart won't drain, smells hot". You could have same issue and your motor just hasn't burned up yet.

SOURCE: No water flow on Fisher and Paykel smartdrive 708 washing machine

Take the lid off,just open it & pull it straight up.There should be a little red button that the lid strikes against unless its a different model,in that case it has a magnetic reed switch under the right hand side of the this red switch instead of closeing lid,see if it fill with no problem.the lid may not be making good contact with switch..if thats not it then it may be the inlet valve..then you can try the hot,if theres no problem with hot then its the cold valve.

The best bet is to have an authorized serviceman test the control board for continuity. It is out of phase and cannot reset to the normal start position.

Fisher and paykel GW 709 balance switch

The electronic boards are the cause of most problems, the main thing is the boards condensers drying out and aging. Resistors, transistors, and micro processors do not give much trouble. The secret is buying an old machine that is still working and removing the electronics board (and other parts) and sticking it into your machine. i would say this will fix the problem(s). Other faults, like valve solenoids generally speaking don't cause problems - but be aware they can, make sure the belts are not worn or some foreign object is jammed in the water pump which may fry the electronics board.

F&P washing machine:GW709 doesn't cut out when filling

could b pressure switch tube is blocked or your control board with the pressure switch attached is faulty. empty water from machine, remove pressure switch hose from control board, blow thru tube to remove any blockages, refit tube. turn on cycle, select low water level, push start, after about 30sec"s push start again, that should stop it filling straight away. if the water stops push start again to continue filling. if it doesnt stop filling after restarting the cycle then it is your control module.if the water doesnt stop filling after the 30 sec stop it is the water valves. by the way what country do u live in because $120 seems to b alittle too expensive. please reply 4 more help.
