Question about Washing Machines
Check the valve where water inlet hoses attach to back of machine. If you have hard water mineral deposits tend to clog up this valve. You can remove and clean this valve or just replace. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Both of you most likely are getting a "RPS Sensor Fault"
On a GWL10, when the motor rotor position sensor fails, it will act exactly like you describe. Many techs incorrectly replace the machine control or the water inlet valve(s). The RPS sensor is much cheaper. If you consult the tech sheet located under the control panel, you will see the fault code for RPS failure and I would bet the farm that the sequence of LEDs displayed when your washer faults out matches exactly with the RPS fault code.
The RPS sensor for GWL10 and GWL11 models is a part # 420296P and canbe purchased direct from Fisher Paykel Parts:
The procedure to replace it is a little involved but a handy person can do it. It would be best to consult the factory service manual and again, that can be purchased from Fisher Paykel Parts direct here:

My comment is generic to all washing machines in which there is a fill problem. Finally I remembered that when we did an upgrade on our basement I installed the type of fill hose that will prevent flooding. Sure enough, when I interchanged the hoses the problem switched from no hot to no cold. A flood prevention mechanism had malfunctioned on one hose and the reset feature did not work. A return to Home Depot will complete the solution to my problem - but I feel humbled to have overlooked the possibility that this simple malfunction had caused the grief.
