Fisher & Paykel Smart Drive 601 - won't turn on


my washing maching - after being unplugged for a couple of days - has decided that it will NOT turn on. I have checked the power point that it is plugged into, other appliances work OK. I don 't get any lights or anything.
Do you have any idea what the problem could be?

It could be a faulty lid switch in the blue display board.
The smaller one of the two has the lid switch in it.

Fisher & paykel smart drive 601, power to board, won't fill

If it isn/t doing anything at all it could be a faulty start switch on the display panel. Also make sure you can hear an audible click when you open and close the lid. The lid switch on a 601 is actuated on the right hand back of lid adjust as required. Hope this helps.

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.
