    :confused:Our washing machine is a digital operated one.What could be the main problem if no light LED light is tuning on but there is voltage flowing around the circuits. I have tested with a DMM. The LED for POWER ON is not ON. Have tested all the LEDs and they are working.From the outside, it seems that there is no power @ all that is flowing...Please advice on how to check...I have opened the cover and have a basic knowledge on electrical stuff..

    Having a manufacturer name and model number would be rather helpful.

    I have never heard of that company; it seems that they are in New Zealand.

    Their Customer Support page is here:
    http://www.fisherpaykel.co.nz/global/customer-care/customer-care_home.cfm

    You can download manuals and troubleshooting guides. They also have a 24/7 telephone number that you can call. I suggest that you attempt to procure a service manual for your machine.

    Here's a link to your use and care manual:
    http://www.fisherpaykel.co.nz/admin/pdfs/pdf_usecares/426991_aw_uc.pdf

    I've repaired a few US-made washers/dryers, but I've never seen a Fisher/Paykel machine. Attempting to troubleshoot your machine without the benefit of the knowledge contained in the service manual could cause more harm than do good.

    We bought a F&P about 2 years ago, they have an unusual design.
    The drive motor is dc and it's a direct drive, no transmission,or gearbox.
    The spin cycle is extremely fast,the clothes are packed against the inner walls of the drum by certifugal force and nearly have to be pried out.
    We haven't had the first problem.
