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.

Most likely something stuck in the pump, you need to look underneath to get to it, the pump turns anti clockwise to remove it.

sounds like a size error . when you changed the display did you size your machine to the new display module?did you get the re-size set of instructions with the new display board? ring up where you brought the display from and i"m sure they can help. if not reply back and i will guide you thru it.

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
If it is shaking and not sitting flat ( should have no rock corner to corner) check the leveling legs. Make sure to tighten up the locknut after adjusting.
Sometimes a Timer will start making noises before they fail. I would highly suggest replacing the timer as soon as the noise develops. This can cause problems with your motor and other components if left alone. This is easy to identify just listen up near the console when running.
The transmission does not usually fail but to check this on a direct drive remove the motor and rotate the inner tub and listen for noises it should be quiet. If not the transmission is expensive and you will need to evaluate wether it is worth repairing.
On direct drive machines this is a common failure and can be very noisy.
You will need to disassemble the motor to listen to the motor running. If the motor is noisy it will need replacing. On direct drive models check the motor coupler first.
The Suspension Rods support the tub under the cabinet on some models. The washer must be disassembled to access. These usually do not fail. On direct drive types there will be springs instead of suspension rods. Either usually fails but can from being overloaded.
The drain pump can be the cause of noise. On belt drive types remove the belt and rotate the pump pulley it should spin freely and make no noise. If it is noisy replace. If it does not spin freely remove and inspect for obstructions if none found replace the pump. Check the impeller on the pump it should be tight and spin freely. On direct drive types remove the pump and inspect it

This usually means the machine has locked up due to a suds issue? Meaning your using to much detergent or not using h.e detergent? which by the way u are suppose to use very little of in ur machine. Especially if u have an H.E machine and ur using regular detergent? u can try running some empty loads with water and vinegar
