Question about Washing Machines

HELP Hi There: I get 3 short beeps when I press the 'Power' button. Power does notcome on (it's plugged in and there's power to the recepticle). The onlyother button that works is the 'Controls Lock/Unlock' which turns redwhen held for 3 seconds. I followed you direction and open the pump and noticed a small sock was there I removed and even open actual pump and screw them back it started for a second and notice there is leak from the pump stopped and screw them tighter and again does the above 2 short beeps. Do you think I should remove the black tube and white tube to the pump and out for further inspection? What I am missing? PLZ help. Regards,

    Thank you very much for the tip I tired it the pump turns freely but it is not starting still gets the 3 beeps and not lights on the displays. I noticed if I keep it plugged for to power the next day it has F70 or F71 error message but if I unplug again and plug it back it disappears and again 3 beeps and nothing else.

    I bought it from The brick Store.

    Thanks,

After the beeps do you hear a buzzing noise (place your hand on the pum,p to see if it is the pump trying to turn). If so unplug the machine and try opening the pump up again with something to catch the water. Once it is open, reach around to the hole on the right. Just in side that hole there is a "paddle wheel". Make sure it can turn freely. If not, you make have some sort of forign debris trapping it and keeping it from turning. If the pump is not continuing to try and turn, it sounds like you have a control board problem. If that's the case, I would call Sears and ask for thier "service smart" program. Basically you pay one flat fee for the repair and get a year warranty (weather you bought it there or not) and The board alone will run more than the fee they charge you (not to mention pay for the labor too).

It is important to set the size switch setting into the Motor Controller's memory whenever a replacement Motor Controller and or Display Module is fitted
To set the size switch turn the power on at the wall and off at the machine. Press and hold the TEMPERATURE UP button then press the POWER button. SmartDrive will give 4 short beeps and the pattern of LEDs will change.
• Press SPIN SPEED UP button, the SPIN HOLD LED is on for (8.0kg) (650mm wide). • Press POWER to exit this mode.
If this doesn't work let me know

Gw608u will not spin


Unplug the machine for 15 mins. Try again from the beginning (start a small size wash cycle) and see if the problem clears itself. If it turns itself off again, see if it starts beeping and flashing any of the control panel lights when it does, and at what stage does it turn off? You will get the answer by yourself.

Won't spin gw608u


You need to call a repair person. Or if the washer is still on warranty trade it in. This sounds like a problem from the factory

My Fisher & Paykel 708 smart drive washing machine won't starts and beeps.


That is Error code 9
9.
(00001001) Phase 1 to 5 - Size Error
Phase 4 to 5
The Display size switch setting does not match that stored in memory.
Action - Reselect the size of Smartdrive by using the SIZE SETTING MODE. Push and hold
the water temp up button, then press the power button to enter SIZE SETTING MODE. Three
LEDs are used to identify size. The cold water temperature LED identifies 5kg. The low water
level LED identifies 6kg. The hold spin speed LED identifies 7kg. If the product has not been
setup before all 3 LEDs will be on. To set the size for 5kg push the wash temp up button then
the power button. To set the size for 6kg push the water level up button then the power button.
To set the size for 7kg push the spin speed up button then the power button. This locks the size
into memory. To check the size is set, start a cycle.

DIAGNOSTIC MODE
To enter diagnostic mode follow the steps below.
1. Turn the power on at the power point but off at the machine.
2. Press and hold WASH TEMPERATURE SETTING DOWN and then press POWER until the
machine gives 2 short beeps and lights up.
3. Release the buttons after the beeps as the beeps indicate diagnostic mode has been entered.
4.1 Last Fault Data
When in diagnostic mode the last fault can be found by pressing the SPIN SPEED UP or DOWN
buttons until the HOLD and SLOW lights are illuminated. Binary can then be read from the wash
progress lights.
4.2 Drain Pump Test
MW Washer
When in diagnostic mode press SMART TOUCH CYCLES to activate the drain pump. To
deactivate the pump, press SMART TOUCH CYCLES again.
GW Washer
When in diagnostic mode press REGULAR to activate the drain pump. To deactivate the pump,
press REGULAR again.

4.3 Water Valve Test
The water valves can be activated in diagnostic mode by pushing WASH TEMPERATURE SETTING UP to activate the Hot Valve and WASH TEMPERATURE SETTING DOWN to activate
the Cold valve as with previous models.
Pressing each button once will activate the valve. To de-activate valve press the same button
again. This is also good to use when installing machines as it takes the shock out of the fittings
and seals and allows checking for leaks on the inlet hoses, both machine end and tap or super-tub
end.
Caution: Do not leave the machine unattended when either or both valves are operating
