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!

Our washer did the same but it was after I took the excess drain hose and pushed it into the drain in the wall. I thought it looked "more tidy" In doing so I created a siphon effect. Once I pulled the excess hose back out it was fine.

You need to pull out the washer, TURN OFF THE WATER, then take the water hoses off the back of the washer. Check the screens inside the water inlets for debris. If that doesn't fix the problem you may need to ask fisher paykel if it's safe to put a chemical like limeaway in those holes to remove hard water deposits that have built up inside the valves.

Yes. Whichever is filling slow. Hot or cold. It is a code for the fill valve. Just replaced the cold fill valve on my unit which seems to be the one that most commonly goes out. Easy repair. 2 screws and 1 Plug...If you unscrew the top by taking out two phillips screws in the back, you will find some paperwork about trouble codes, repairs etc...Right next to the fill valves.
