hi there the first thing ill tell you is that the washer needs to drain water before it can spin there are only a few factors that prohibit this operation a faulty lid switch secound a blown or blocked water pump being a fisher paykel they are famous for jammed water pumps as they decided when they built the sysyem to turn the water pump upside down this causes a lot of stress on the water pump see if you can lay the hose on the ground and get all the water out i belive the machine will then start to spin dry. in this case it is the water pump and have it replaced its a simple operation if you can order the part fromf/p you simply turn the washer on its side depress the white latch next to the pump turn the pump clockwise till ity release from machine disconnect power supply plug and fit new unit as per reverse

best of luck

remove pump check foe anything that may be jamming it,at the same time check the copper windings for any discoloration ,if any replace pump,faulty pumps get hot and after a short time switch off due to a built in thermal cut out

Hi, you should beable to put a thin knife into the slot on the little door flap at the front on the right side and gently pull the door flap down, then unscrew the plug and the water will drain out, put a larg try underneath to catch the water, best to undo the plug enougth so that when the tray is full you can tighten the plug why you empty the tray, all the best.

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.

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...

Does it beep when you switch it on at the wall
Are there any lights showing on the display when you push the power button? or does it seem completely dead

It's best to use a film of petroleum jelly rather than any grease

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
