Question about Fisher and Paykel IWL12 Top Load Washer
The washing machine has power and water going to it. But when you try to start the machine the door lock light blinks and it won't start. The door closes and appears to latch closed just fine.

Look for the 2 buttons on your that have a lock symbol. Pushing & hold both for 3 seconds. This toggles the child proof mode.

I am having the same issue and hope someone can post a solution. I have found a work around though. Mine does it when it is on a 'Regular' wash cycle, I found that if I put it on Permanent Press it works fine.

Although the machine itself is balanced, it sounds like the drum isn't. Since it's not held in place with belts, it has a tendency to float some and on occasion, it will become unbalanced. You will notice it more often on lighter loads than heavy because the extra weight of the clothes is enough to seat the drum well enough to run. It's the lighter loads when you will notice an issue. What I've done is to physically lift the drum slightly and shake it around in all directions. After letting it come to a rest in the center, it should balance and run correctly for all loads.

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 hob.press 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.
