Fisher & Paykel GWL15 washer stopped, one light blinking, others on

Fisher & Paykel GWL15 top-loading washer stopped early in the cycle. Now, even if I turn it off and on:
- the leftmost orange washer light is blinking
- the 3 green rightmost lights are on
- the rinse and spin lights are on
- Warm, Auto, Fast and Regular lights are on

Googled it but could not find an explanation. I tried unloading part of the load but that didn't help.

What is wrong here?

Thank you!Name:  IMG_4397.jpg

Have not worked on many but most needed a control board. Here is a service manual for your washer.

PS now would be a good time to get a real washer.

Problem solved (itself?)!

All I had to do was wait. After about an hour, it magically started working again. I suspect it was probably overloaded which tripped some sort of sensor. It then "recovered" and everything went back to normal.
