Hi mate

I had the same problem replaced the board still no go. In my case it turned out to be the drain pump. Nothing wrong with it but a small bit of grit that although difficult to see was impeding the impeller

Have a Fisher & Paykel GW701-K Smart Drive washing machine that has been in storage for about 18months. Have gone to use it and it wont power up. Have checked that it is getting power and the glass...

Remove the 2 screws ,lift the top off the control area and check the main control area it's in a brown plastic box that unsnaps, There you will be able to see if there is any corrosion or burn marks. If so you may need to replace the control board.
