This sounds like an issue with the Motor Controller Module and/or Display Module. Unplug the machine then let it sit for at least half an hour to eliminate the possibility of an electronic glitch. Check the wire harness connection between the Motor Controller Module and Display Module if the problem is not addressed. Remove the 2 screws from the rear of the console then raise the console for access to the Motor Controller Module, Display Module, and associated wiring. Check to make sure the wire harness is intact and and fully inserted to both. The connections must be snug fit and corrosion-free. Reseat the connections several times to clean off dirt and corrosion build up in the connectors and terminals.

Consider replacing the Display Module if the problem still persist then the Motor Controller Module if the problem is still not addressed.

It is important to set the size switch setting into the Motor Controller's memory whenever a replacement Motor Controller and or Display Module is fitted
To set the size switch turn the power on at the wall and off at the machine. Press and hold the TEMPERATURE UP button then press the POWER button. SmartDrive will give 4 short beeps and the pattern of LEDs will change.

My top loading fisher and paykel q washing machine beeps with lights 5 and 8 on - what is the problem?


That is Error code 9 machine needs resizing.
9. (00001000) Size Switch Error
The Display size switch setting does not match that which is stored in memory.
Action GW Machines: Reselect the size of the machine by using the SIZE SETTING
MODE.
To set the size switch, turn the power on at the power point and off at
the console. Press and hold Wash Temperature Setting Up then
press Power. SmartDrive will give 4 short beeps and the pattern of
LEDs will change.
One of the following buttons needs to be pushed to lock the size into
memory.
• Press Wash Temperature Setting Up, the Cold LED is on for 5.5kg
(560mm wide).
• Press Water Level Up, the Low Water LED is on for 6.5kg / 7.0kg
(600mm wide).
517790C

• Press Spin Speed Up, the Spin Hold LED is on for 7.5 / 8.0kg
(650mm wide).
• Press Power to confirm the setting and also exit this mode.
Action IW Machines: To access Size Setting Mode, push and hold the Fabric Care button
and then press the Power button to enter Size Setting mode. Select
the correct size on the display by pushing the Adjust button to
highlight the correct size. Size setting is then achieved by pressing
the Power button. Powering off will set the size into the memory.
Note: Fault code 9 will only be logged into the memory of IW machines. GW and MW
machines can display this fault but it will not be recorded.

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.
