Question about Fisher Paykel EcoSmart GWL15
i have a fisher and paykel and may have overloaded it but i am not sure.
it was on and working and i heard a noise and then the machine started beeping and switched itself off. i couldn't switch it back on again with the buttons but when i unplugged it from the power and waited a bit before i plugged it back in again it would come on all lights flash shortly and then the SPIN light keeps flashing, it keeps beeing for a few seconds and then turns itself off again. and them same scenario, cant switch it on unless i unplugg it.
Could be a faulty off load switch
running off balance
machine not level
depends how old the machine is then
if none of those
worn machine motor or internals
might the the circuit board

Hi Tracy, welcome to Fix ya.
I believe know exactly what happened here- one or more of your tub support rods has broken and that caused the tub to drop down. Those are actually pretty easy to change yourself! Lift the lid, look for two plastic caps, one on each side, that cover the screws the secure the washer top to the cabinet. Pop the caps off, take out the screws. Now the whole top can be opened up (it's on a hinge of sorts) and now you can see the main basket/tub assembly. The rods fit in a recess on the tub at the bottom and on the top of the rods, the triangular plastic sits in each corner of the machine. There are no tools needed, these rods come off very easily.
You can get a set here: (They are sold in sets of 4 and should be replaced as a set)
I hope this info is useful to you.

It sounds like you need to re programme the machine.
With the machine plugged into the wall and turned on and the headset turned off this is what you do.
Push and hold down the start button, while doing that you need to then push and hold down the power button.
Hold them down for about 5 seconds, during which time you may a series of up to 3 beeps.
Then release the buttons.
Turn the machine off and then on again followed by the start button. Allow the machine to then run the complete cycle.
This should correct your problem, if this doesn't then you may need to then look at replacing the computer panels.
