I am based in Sydney and have a problem GW701.
For this test I only used cold water and low height, regular setting for agitator.
The test is without any clothes in the machine.
The symptoms are -
Power on, set height to low, select cold, hit START.
After the water gets to the appropriate height the agitator starts to work ok for about 15 seconds, stops, then starts for another 15 seconds then stops, all leds go out, constant beep, beep and the forth led from the left comes on (error code 16?) as the power seems to be off at this stage.
I found the OOB switch had gone high resistance, around 600 ohms when should be short circuit, so I have replaced this; the problem described above was happening prior to me replacing the micro switch.
The problem has been getting progressively worse, ie. it was intermittently exhibiting the problem and just recently became unbearable.
