Fisher and Paykal GWL 10 US - Stops before rinse

The washer has been stopping during or after the wash cycle. It then begins to beep about 1 time per second. The 3rd and 4th light in the wash cycle and the first light in the rinse cycle are lit. To get the machine to finish the cycle I have to press the power button off and then back on, advance to beginning rinse cycle. It will then finish. Next load it does the same thing. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks Dan machine stops anywhere during the cycle. the only way to start it is to turn off at wall and unplug for 5 minutes, it usually restarts at same part of cycle. also machine will not turn on if left turned on and plugged in at wall after last use.

...most likely the balance sensor, a small contact switch behind the main control panel that is telling the machine it is out of balance, more likely the switch and/or contacts have corroded...

When you start your machine is the water just go stop go stop,
Just wait for the machine to display an error code on the wash progress lights and beeps constantly.
It could be the Rotor Position Sensor, out of balance switch or lid magnetic reed switch.
Your error code will determine this.
Is your machine beeping & showing a weird pattern of lights on the wash cycle, It is displaying an error code,
To read this error code you start at the red spin light & work to the left only add up the lights that are on. Red spin light = 1 2nd rinse light =2 1st rinse light =4 last wash light=8 4th wash light=16 3rd wash light=32 2nd wash light=64 1st wash light=128

During the rinse cycle, our GWL 11 Fisher & Paykel

The problem is in the pump, so it will not pump out, you will need to find another way to empty it, removing the agitator will make the job easier.
When you get the water out the pump can be accessed from underneath, it turns anticlockwise to remove it,.
I would buy a new pump as it is most likely that is all that is wrong with it.
