Hi just read your posting.Starting from the left to right if the lights that are on when the machine is beeping are the 3rd and 4th and 8th then the error code is called COLD VALVE FAULTY.This means either your cold water valve is faulty or you control module is faulty.Would you like me to guide you in the testing and isolating the fault and replacing the faulty component?Please reply for further help.Looking forward to your reply.

Hi Deb.
Unfortunately there is no really easy answer to your problem without getting a technician out.
When you ring it would pay not to tell them you've been working on the machine yourself or they may refuse to work on it.
Just say that the light are flashing..etc.
Bear in mind that the Hot and Cold valves on F&Ps are different and should not be exchanged.
Good luck.

F & P Washer GW612 Wont drain fully unless you repeat spin a couple of times and then wont rotate have taken motor to be tested was (low?)Have replaced no improvement First and fourth light flash and...

Kate - firstly the windings of the stator when measured is 32 Ohms, earlier models was a lot lower between B-Y-R.

The washer will pump - rest pump (Cycles) during the spin cycle, if however it overheats then water will not be fully pumped out. A possibilty is the hose into the drain or sink is too high, or blocked somewhere.

In most cases the washer will indicate an error code.

The LEDS 1st & 4th from the right im assumming 10010000 = Fault code 144 - either you have a loose connection under the display/push buttons panel or you have a faulty motor control module

Fault code 00XX000X on GW612 washer

Hi just read your posting.This fault code indicates you have a COLD WATER VALVE FAULT.The lights you marked with --x-- are the ones that are lit.Is this correct?What you need to do is to test the valve coil for OHMS resistance.It should be around 60 to 63 ohms.The water valves are located under the top panel.Please reply to tell me how you got on or if you need further assistance.
