    I have just encountered the exact same problem with my machine.

    Note that these have a contactless lid switch, so it is hard to test. I am not sure if the lid switch is broken, or the control board - I suspect the latter, which will be expensive :-(

    Anyone know the fault codes for these machines?

I've got Fisher and Paykel Excellence Top loader 7.5 My problem is, it won't unload or drain water. What do i have to do?

Hi, The washer wont unload or drain water until the drain pump is working. Get the pump off and look for debris. To remove the pump you unlock the tab and twist the pump a hair. The pump is on the bottom of tub.
