Needs Service code 136
136. (10001000) Motor Stall
The Motor Control Module has been unable to start the motor. Possible causes of this fault
are: Faulty motor harness, faulty or jammed motor, seized bearings or seals, faulty Motor
Control Module, faulty Rotor Position Sensor or harness.
Primary Source: Wiring.
Action: Measure/check the motor harness, connectors and motor for
discontinuity. This can be done by taking a resistance measurement
between phases of the motor harness at the Motor Control Module
end. Nominal resistance should be around 32Ohms.
Secondary Source: Motor.
Action: 1) Check free rotation of the agitator and basket by rotating by hand.
Bearings and seals may be seized.
2) Check the Rotor Position Sensor and associated harness for
water, mechanical damage or corrosion.
Tertiary Source: Motor Control Module.
Action: If the primary and secondary checks pass inspection, then replace
the Motor Control Module.

HI - A 708 EH! A BIT OF AN OLDIE - ANYWAY THE PROBLEM SHOULD BE THE DOOR SWITCH NOT OPERATING.
OK - to repair - unplug the power source - remove 2 screws back top corners, lift the display unit & lay on the lid - on the right side got all the wires going down the machine - locate the first plug has 4 wires , wh - Y- Bl & Bl - BK/BL are thinner and both goes with the rest of the wires & the other 2 you will note goes under the controller - cut & strip the BK/BL so the copper is exposed - use a proper elect connector twist together these exposed wires & join inside the connector.
Assemble & enjoy.
CAUTION - this in effect will overide the lids effectiveness - whilst the machine is operational the opening of the lid will not pause/stop the machine in its tracks like how it should be. Be wary the user safety has been compromised - otherwise try to obtain a replacement if still available for these particular series...

I can talk you througt this in live chat, but you'd need to get a F&P Bearing replacement toolkit and seals and bearings and a new agitator shaft. cheers
