Get one out of another machine,They are the same size.
but not AquaSmart as they are completely different suspension rods.
remove two screws under the lid bump stop at the front of machine
lift up panel to see the suspension rods.

SOURCE: fisher & paykel smart drive washing machine leaking water

If your washer is still under warranty, I would call the company and have them send someone down. If the leak is from either the drum itself or a seal then I don't think you could handle it yourself. But, first make absolutely sure that it's not from any hose connection. Tighten all the connections, especially those to the drain pump. And check the pump itself for any leaks.

Peace Friend,
ngfam1 At your service!

With an error code the only way to find and to repair this is,

First unplug the washer and wait a few minutes then restart it like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
If it corrects the problem GREAT!!! WE WIN!

How old is the washer?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!

If not only a trained laundry tech can make the electronic diagnoses.
Like we used to be able to fix my own cars, but not today they need diagnostic equipment!
Below I referred you to a great service nation wide!

If none of these tasks remedy the problem then here is a good company that's found nation wide.
A&E Factory Service
A&E has schedulers available to take appointments 24/7
And they do warranty work too, for most manufactures!
1(800) 905-9505

You will be fine
Bless You ngafm1

SOURCE: fisher & paykel washing machine fault codes

I have a Fisher & Paykel GW609AU Smartdrive Excellence 6.5 Washing Machine that would start then stop then start then stop a few more times before eventually beeping.
I fixed it by bypassing(joined the white and yellow wire) the trip out switch which is located under the control module(one screw to remove).Now it Works.

Gw708u spin cycle wont work

There are 3 common causes of this, 1: OOB (out of balance)switch is faulty - to get to this you must remove the display console cover and the main control module and it is underneath in (common microswitch, test with a multimeter) 2. Lid Reed Switch has failed (Bridge out red and black wires in 4 wire plug on right side of motor controller module to test- machine will spin when you select spin cycle when this is bridged if this is the issue) 3. Broken Balance spring (simple but common - left front corner of machine attached to neck ring on top of drum and to the suspension strut: you can bend the end of a broken spring to re-attach)

I hope you can make sense of these instructions. i am better at doing than telling
