I started a load of clothes and the tub filled and washed but will not empty and go into the spin cycle. Three lights are lit and the washer just beeps to alert that something is wrong. I unplugged the unit and tried to "reset" it thinking the problem may be with the computer, but that did not work. Any suggestions?

Re: Fisher Paykel dishwasher
Tilt the washer backwards. looking under the washer toward the front right corner youll see a black fan blade. its part of the drain pump. see if you can turn it manually. if you cant then you can push in the white plastic tab up close to the tub, and twist the pump to the left. be prepared because all the water in the tub is going to come out. once you get the pump out you might find a sock or something wraped around it. if so just remove it and reinstall the pump. if nothing is stuck around the pump or if the pump turns manually then the windings in the pump are bad just replace it

Water will not shut off
1. Defective timer ( timer fill the machine)---replace
2. Defective water level control---replace
3.foreign particles in mix & fill valve---clean out valve
4. Defective valve---replace
This problem will often occur with a light load of clothes. The beeping is usually the unbalanced load alarm. Often, redistributing the clothes around the agitator and moving the agitator manually up and down and side to side to center it again will fix the problem. You may need to advance a new cycle to where it spins out to empty the washer and run the laundry again.
sorry to keep asking questions but i just need to know a little more information. are you using auto fill? have you tried manual water level settings? is your machine the one with the LCD DISPLAY?when it stops at rinse, is it agitating? if you have the LCD display have you tried the- traditional wash mode? please reply 4 further help.
The REGULAR CYCLE button turns the drain pump on or off. The REGULAR LED will turn on when the pump is on. This feature can be used to drain the tub. You could get a bucket and lay the hose on the fllor. Gravity will drain it down.
For those with water on floor after wash, check my post on "eco smart won't drain, smells hot". It could be something clogging drainage area at very bottom of the tub. I couldn't see the sock that was stuck in my FP's drain when I looked from the top between the white outer tub and the wash tub--everything looked fine. Then I removed the black motor/white plastic housing piece--Tip back washer and you should see this black electric motor/white housing on bottom. see my post for how to remove and check for plugged drain. it's really pretty easy.
don't know about outer tub holes, but glad i don't have that problem.
i hate my fisher paykel washer/dryer. i can't wait to sell this house--i will leave them here and get a new front load Duette for my next house!
