Unbalanced 2008 top loader fisher and paykel washing machine

We have a fisher and paykel aquasmart washing machine 2008. The problem is that it keeps stopping and beeping as an indication that it is off balance. I redistribute the clothes and it is fine to continue the cycle for 5 minutes or so and then stops and starts beeping again. I am wondering if it has knocked itself off balance because it did have an unbalanced load yesterday and was knocking loudly. Can I rebalance it myself ?

SOURCE: Water leaks from my Aquasmart 8 kg washing

On most units, the water pump was a "weep" hole on it which tells you pump needs to be changed soon. It tells you the internal seals are starting to fail.

SOURCE: My Model GW712 won't spin or drain Top loader

hi there the first thing ill tell you is that the washer needs to drain water before it can spin there are only a few factors that prohibit this operation a faulty lid switch secound a blown or blocked water pump being a fisher paykel they are famous for jammed water pumps as they decided when they built the sysyem to turn the water pump upside down this causes a lot of stress on the water pump see if you can lay the hose on the ground and get all the water out i belive the machine will then start to spin dry. in this case it is the water pump and have it replaced its a simple operation if you can order the part fromf/p you simply turn the washer on its side depress the white latch next to the pump turn the pump clockwise till ity release from machine disconnect power supply plug and fit new unit as per reverse

best of luck

SOURCE: Whats a code 43 on

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.

Hi - you have possibly some restrictions in/around your smart pump unit, inside is a flapper valve suppose to control flow in both directions, often this gets the rough treatments.

Be careful if you wish to have a nosy its located beneath the smart agitator.
