Question about Fisher Paykel EcoSmart GWL15

Fisher & Paykal washing machine, Mod:GHL10US

My Fisher & Paykal washing machine stop in mid cycle. Using the diognostic mode I got (00XX0 0X0). According to the sheet this mean that "Hot and/or cold water valve faulty". I don't have a service manual. Does this mean that I should replace the hot and cold water valve?
I was told by a service guy that I should replace the motor control board. This does not make sense to me and it is really expensive.
What do you suggest?

    My machine takes forever to fill and more than often will error out before it reaches the firt wash cycle. I have well water and assumed that there was

    sidime in the hose. Several times when I disconnected the cold water hose cleaned it out then reconnected it the problem went away - this doesn't work anymore -- could I need to have the cold water valve replaced?

What does it mean when my fisher and paykel washing machine stops mid wash cycle and starts beeping the lights that show up are 2 and 7 it's a gw611 model

I would normally say a clothes balance issue but if its happening all the time. u may have an issue with the counter balance weights or rods depending on ur type of appliance. If they go bad they tend to shut down applaince mid cycle after some amount of movement or shaking. and what happen is it contantly throw machine into unbalance position

Why would it stop mid cycle? You can hear the engine trying to start.

It is not the engine but the motor that makes the noise. perhaps it can be a mechanical issue that stops the machine at mid cycle due to friction on the drive or it can be due to faulty control panel or even a dirty/ clogged drain pump.
