Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer
The water pump is indeed leaking then shorted out leading to the damage of the motor controller module as manifested by the failure of the machine to turn on. It would be a costly fix since you have to replace both for the machine to work again.
Lay the washer on its back on protective material but ensure that the washer is slightly raised at the top to prevent residual water in the tub from spilling out. Remove the base panel by easing the tabs, located at each corner, with long nosed pliers, then pry the panel off using a flat bladed screwdriver. Remove the drain hose from the pump then unscrew the pump from the bottom of the tub and remove it. Reinstall the new pump into position and reconnect the drain hose.
Remove the 2 screws from the rear of the console then raise the console for access to the Motor Controller Module. Remove the screw securing the Motor Controller Module to the cover and lift the Motor Controller Module up at the pressure sensor end and ease away from the inlet chamber. A small quantity of water will discharge from the Inlet Chamber and heat-sink. Dry off the water then install the new Motor Controller Module. Secure the console back into position and you are good to go.

Thanks for using FixYa. Please check the lid switch is fine. Check the connector voltage which should be 110V. Also check that nothing is jamming the motor to hinder it to rotate. Please apply some grease on the rusted part. If still the issue persists, then it means that the pressure switch or timer has gone bad. Replace whichever is required. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
