Question about Fisher and Paykel Washing Machines
It sounds like the motor control module has failed. Check for power to the input of the control. The line cord feeds right into the controller.
If you determine that there is indeed power to the controller, you need to figure out what caused it to fail, making sure there isn't a secondary condition which caused this control to fail.
A leaky, wet or shorted water pump can cause the control to fail. Inspect the water pump for signs of leakage and corrosion.
Check also to make sure the controller isn't sitting in a pool of water. The thermistor seal on the water mixing chamber can leak and allow water to seep into the pan where the control is located.
A shorted water inlet valve or shorted diverter valve can also cause control failure.
If you do not check these things, and replace the control, it will fail in short order if any of the above mentioned conditions are present.
