Question about Fisher Washing Machines
Your washer is trying to tell you something is wrong. When the cycle interrupts and the machine starts to beep, it is in "fault mode" and it is correctly trying to tell you what is wrong with it. On models that have no LCD display, (GWL10, GWL11, etc) the LED lamps that normally indicate the various stages of wash cycles become "fault code indicators". On models with a LCD display, such an IWL12 for example, the LCD display will show the fault with a description. On all Fisher Paykel washers, you will find a detailed "tech sheet" located underneath the touch module of the machine, on the left side, in a plastic bag next to the water inlet valves/mixing chamber area. This sheet contains detailed info on fault codes and diagnostics. We always ask that people first read over this sheet and become familiar with these codes and what they mean. In many instances this will get you pointed in the right direction. To gain access you must UNPLUG the washer, and remove the two phillips screws that secure the control panel frame to the washer top deck. It also helps to remove the lid for ease of removal of the control panel from the deck.(simply open the lid 3/4 of the way up and lift it right off the hinges) Be careful not to damage or tug on the wiring connector from the motor control to the touch module.
NEVER attempt to enter diagnostic mode without first re-attaching the control panel to the washer.

not familliar with that exact model number ( we dont have that over here in the US) we have simalair f&p gwl10- gwl11) that problem sounds as if either the pump is bad and overheating before pumping all the water or a diverter valve is not fully closing allowing water to remain in tub.

look at my post "eco smart won't drain, smells hot". It could be something stuck in very lowest part fo drainage area. you have to remove the motor on bottom of washer to see into this area and remove blockage.

We had the same problem with our washing machine being full of water and beeping during the rinse cycle. The problem is that the filter, which is located under the washing machine, is plugged with something. Ours was plugged with a cotton swab. You have to tip the washing machine up and remove the filter and unplug it. The filter is in the center of the bottom of the machine. It twists off. I had to get the cotton swab out of inside the machine through this opening.
This machine plugs up a lot - I've never experience this with any other washing machine. Good Luck!

Emptied washer, tipped it on its side, detached drainage pipes underneath, and pulled out old fabric/lint/blockage with tweezers. Plugged in, switched on, all good.
