My Fisher Paykal Washer is filling and emptying at the same time
As my washer fills (cold) is also empties at the same time. I did remove the pump the other day because it blocked with a hair pin of all things. It work fine the next day. I have removed the pump before when the spinner was wrapped with theads and was stuck.

Check your drain hose if it to low in the main drain pipe this can cause the water to siphon out as well and there should be a small flap like door in the drain pump assemble that may be stuck in the open position.there is a chance that you may need to replace the pump. check the wiring and make sure it is connected properly

Clogged drain hose - cause water to back up to the pump and shut down
Clogged drain tube - usually occurs when the drain hose is attached to a drain tube that empties out into the homes sewer system. Just like a clogged drain, water will back up all the way through the drain hose into the pump and shut down.
Clogged or bad drain pump - Many times, debris left in
pockets will work it's way into the drain pump. Over time, enough
debris (paper, coins etc) could lodge itself into the pump. When the
machine tries to empty or spin out, the pump becomes overwhelmed and
shuts down. Sometimes, you may even see a puddle of water appear under
the washer due to a clogged pump. This can also happen if the pump
itself is worn out and no longer working up to specifications.
Luckily, your drain pump is easily accessible. Placing a towel or blanket down, unplug the machine, disconnect the fill and drain hoses and gently turn the washer forward onto the towel or blanket. Only tools needed are a pair of pliers and a phillip head screwdriver. After removing the drain hose and the screw holding the pump in place, it should easily be removed so you can inspect for debris (a very common problem with F&P washers. Best of luck with your repair. Greg

The seals have perished and need replacing contact f&p service with model no and purchase new ones. Udo control panel after disconnecting power to machine .Water valves held in by 3 screws and 2 control wires
The problem is in the pump, so it will not pump out, you will need to find another way to empty it, removing the agitator will make the job easier.
When you get the water out the pump can be accessed from underneath, it turns anticlockwise to remove it,.
I would buy a new pump as it is most likely that is all that is wrong with it.
The cycle doesn't advanceWhen the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.
If your machine is a FAV6800AWW or FAV9800AWW the (upside down u and f) may be a “NF” for no fill error.The washer has tried to fill the machine with water and has sensed a water fill issue.The control board has shut the wash cycle down with an “NF” error to the display because of excess time to complete the water fill portion of the wash cycle. Will the machine complete the cycle with Hot water only or Cold water only?I would do a Quick Wash cycle just to test with an empty wash basket. Regardless of the above test and assuming you have good water pressure for both Hot and Cold supplies to the washer I would do the following. Close the water source valves to the washer and remove the Hot and Cold hose connections at the back of the machine and check for clogged inlet screens.If the water inlet screens are free of restrictions I would go into Service Mode and turn on the Hot and Cold water valves on one at a time and make sure the tub will fill with about 2 inches of water in about 3 minutes in service mode.Check both Hot and Cold inlet valves individually see page 16 of the SM Board Output Test, enter service mode and do the function test for both Hot and Cold Water Valve’s.If the inlet screens are clean and you have water fill restrictions in service mode we may need to look at replacing the water inlet valve assembly.You can turn on the drain pump in service mode to empty the tub or just start a wash cycle and the machine will empty the tub.
