Most possibly be Error code 56,
Is common in 11 series machines & early series 12.
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

SOURCE: model GW611 the first and second last led flashes.

If by first led you mean green to the left & amber to the right then that is fault code (130) & i think it is (Rotor Position Sensor) If you meant first to the right that would be red & green, code 65.no that doesn't sound right.its 130 & im sure thats rotor sensor.

Hi - this sounds more likely to be a faulty motor control module, its overheating and a electronic component is failing. Only way is to fit a new control module to eliminate the possibilty, another probable cause may well be the RPS sensor failing as it goes into spin mode.

Really need to do a few tests with a multi-meter, see if the motor/stator windings are ok, a faulty RPS at times will give a similar head ache..

The problem can be determined through the Wash Progress LEDs. The specific lit LEDs combination indicates an specific error code that tells what generally the problem is. But the exact positions of the lit LEDs are necessary in determining the exact code. Refer to the illustration below and post back the code or the exact positions of the lit LEDs. You may Google for the error code once you determine it, like "Fisher and Paykel Fault Code 37".

3 lights and loud beeping


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.

Hi - the out of balance switch has activated this will be found under the lid right side if you bend lw enough you can see it hanging by a lever - it may have activated from the previous cycle - it needs to be freed - put it outside of the bowl and be sure its free to operate - if not it needs to be removed and replaced.

Fisher & Paykel GW703 wont stop!


It sounds like your machine has been programmed to automatically run through the various cycles continuously. Most likely in error.
