F&P washing machines have a self diagnosis capability. However you have to be able to programme the fault mode and be able to interpret the binery display.
It would be best if you called a tech, because ,although the fault could be a simple one, there is always the chance that a component has failed and caused another to fail as well. (Not uncommon with F&P machines)
If you replace a part it might fail again because of a secondary fault.
An experienced tech will check the machine completely, and replace the part or parts and should warranty the work and parts.
You won't be covered by a warranty if you install the parts yourself..
Probably not what you wanted to hear, but a lot less heartache and stress in the long run...
TIP.. Get quotes for fees, experience and warranty before you commit to a service..
Good luck....Nomess

That is fault code 41
41. (00101001) Temperature Sensor Fault (Thermistor)
The temperature sensor is measuring temperatures above 110oC. The fault is probably
due to a short circuit in the sensor line. This fault is only applicable in the GW models.
Primary Source: Thermistor.
Action: 1) Check the connection from the thermistor the Motor Control
2) Check the resistance of the thermistor. It should read 12.5k ohms
at 20oC. Replace if faulty.
3) Replace the Motor Control Module.
