Hello, Keith -

I suggest you contact Fisher and Paykel Customer Care and ask your question directly. I have no idea the country where your washer was manufactured. Therefore, following are the links for country of manufacture:

USA: Choose "Help & Support"

Canada: Choose "Help & Support"

New Zealand: Choose "Support"

Australia: Choose "Support"

Fixya receives questions from people worldwide. I am answering from the USA.

Best wishes.

That means that power is being applied to the drain pump when it shouldn't be. There is only one reason for that, a fault in the main control board. You will have to replace the main board.

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.

It beeps to tell you there is an error. While it is beeping & before pressing any buttons, read the error code & write it down. The error code is the lights along the top row. Count from left to right and make a note of exactly which lights are on and which are off. There are 8 lights, you need to say exactly which number light is on. Post the result back here and someone will tell you what that error code means.

Make sure that the washer drain hose is at least 30 inches above where it comes out of the washer or 38 from the ground. the washers drain hose needs to be typically higher than the washer. Could also be a faulty pressure switch depending on the washer See video link.

Error code 136 motor stall. Can be caused by several things. 1. Faulty wiring or copper stator in motor. Check with ohm meter. You haven't said what model so I can't tell you what your ohms should be. 2. Faulty RPS (rotor position sender) That little circuit board on top of the stator. You need a special RPS test meter to check it. 3. Drum seizing up. Try spinning the steel bowl by hand, it should be very easy to rotate and no loud bearing noise. 4. Faulty main control board. Don't worry about the cracks in the stator. Nearly every machine I work on has cracks. It doesn't affect performance.
