I have just owned a Fisher & Paykel washing machine GW 712 7.5kg for less than a year and now its not working apart from 3 lights flashing on and off and a beeping sound

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

Motor controllers and display modules have to be compatible...My best suggestion is that you get any numbers that you can from the part that worked and contact a supplier on mainland oz.

My Fisher & Payel smart load dryer is not


Thanks for using FixYa. No Heat issue in an electric dryer is usually caused due to three things mainly: Thermal Fuse, Wiring Harness and/or Heating Element. Start with checking the Thermal Fuse which ismounted inside the back cover panel to the exhaust duct and is mounted in white plastic housing. If thats fine then the Heating Element should be checked. Please do revert for further assistance.
