Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer
The lid lock switch is defective and tthough the lid is closed the contact is not short . This connection must be establised as the safety feature when lid is opened to stop the motor from rotating.
So remove the lid switch which is fixed on the hinges section and a possible contact spray can rectify the switch contact. If not replace and set for the washer to spin.

SOURCE: washer will not spin
I'm having a little trouble understanding the question because of the spelling, but this sounds like a typical lid switch not making contact either by the depressor on the lit itself or the switch is broken. try depressing the switch with a screwdriver and see what happens. The lid switch will be in a little slot in the top inside where the lid closes.

I will give you a few things to try that are non technical and let’s see if the Control Board will let you in Service Mode. If so we will try lock and unlock the washer in Service Mode.
The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.
Let enter Service Mode;
Enter the Service Mode by pressing and holding the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or the display reads “00”
Board Output Test
While in Service Mode, pressing the Delicates key will begin the Board Output Test. This test turns on a
specified output after a key press. (Pressing the Delicates key again cancels the test.) All outputs
will be turned off after five (5) minutes.
Now Press the Colors / Jeans key this should lock the Left and Right Lid Locks….. did it?
If the lid locked now press the Extra Rinse Key and this should Unlock the Left and Right Lid Locks….. did it?
Let me know and we will go from there. I’m trying to get a feel for what Control Board functionality you have……Rich

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question!!!!

Did you fix this, Leila Bell?
Also having this problem with Simpson EZI sensor 802 model washing machine. This type of error message (flashing lid lock plus beeping) is not in the manual. I suspected blockage (a sock?) so checked connection of drain hose with bottom of machine, but nothing there. May try taking the back off and looking into the pump.
Better if someone has an easier approach.
