fault code 56 is a real code : bowl invalid check clutch in centre of bowl and pressure tube is not kinked,can also mean pressure tranducer on motor control board could be faulty, note check for obstruction between inner and outer bowl( missing a sock perhaps.?)

0E - OVER-FLOW ERROR

Over-Flow error occurs when the water level is too high. It can be cleared by turning POWER switch OFF. Water is drained prior to POWER switch OFF. The tub is drained for 2 minutes if a frequency of more than 25 KHz is detected.

That's an 'out of balance' switch problem. Typically caused by a crook microswitch that lives under the main processor housing. Can replace with a generic switch from Jaycar or similar if needed.

136 fault is 'motor stall'...Quite often this is a broken wire to the motor. However it could also be a Motor fault, or Rotary Position Sensor problem. Water damage can cause this fault as well. After a visual check for broken wires or water damage, and if your machine is in good condition, you should consider a tech....Good luck...Nomess

fault code 136 is a hard one possible causes are faulty rotor speed sensor on motor,siezed bearings or rotor,motor windings ,or motor control module, would suggest you get a tech for this one to diagonse correctty ,without proper tools to test eg: rss tester you could cot yourself more money... hope this was some help....:)
