Question about Washing Machines
The machine will not turn on when I push the start button. It's a digital mashine about four years old. I live in Medellin, Colombia and I don't have an instruction manual. Is their a reset button or built in circuit breaker or something? If not, where do I start looking for the problem. All the repairshops here are thieves so please help me figure this out.
I had the same problem with a Fisher & Paykel Smartdrive 701. First try disconnecting power lead for 5 mins, then plug back in and try again. It sometimes resets itself. Second try is the fuse. Take off the control panel cover (2 screws), open the blue control box (the larger one still mounted in the machine) and you'll see a simple fuse. If you're lucky this is a very cheap fix and hopefully didn't blow for a reason.
If the fuse is OK then it will be the main circuit board blown in the smaller blue box that comes off with the control panel. F&P don't sell component parts for these like a simple blown micro-switch, and a new board is $200+ labour to fit.(5 mins)
Great washing machine but my boards only last 4 years between replacements. Have now bought their new Aquasmart machine.
