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.

OK Problem located (without Diagnostics) , the problem was a faulty START/PAUSE button. I took the display board apart and fiddled with the button (whilst the power was UNPLUGGED) Starts almost every time, when it does`nt fiddle some more.

There is a transmission clutch that engages for the spin cycle. A gear has worn or broken a tooth. Replacement of the transmission hispeed spin cycle assembly is required.
The other comments are of no use. You must get parts from an Authorized Fisher & Paykel dealer, or have an authorized repairman service the machine.

If machine has water in it, bucket out as much as you can.
To access pump:
-Pull machine forward and lean it backwards so you can access under machine.
-On the front right hand side, you will see a fan blade- this is the drain pump. This fan blade should spin freely if you turn it by hand.
-To remove pump: remove plug connection that has 2 wires. Remove other plug connection that has 1 wire. On the top of the pump assembly, you will see a white plastic tag, about a 40mm long horizontally across the pump- gently pull tag towards you, and turn complete pump unit anti clockwise- whole pump will drop out (don't force it, it should come out easily) *Note* if there is water in machine still, it will come out when you remove pump assembly- be ready with some towels!!
-Check pump impellor(blade on other end of pump) is free from obstruction, and turns easily. Check with your finger to see if there is any obstruction in the hole where the pump has come out of (inside bowl).
-You can test pump with an ohm meter (should be approx 37ohms from memory)
Reassemble and test for leaks etc

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.
