HI Servicing the Water Level Control Switch

This is another control panel switch, usually located next to the temperature switch. There is a small hose connected to this switch, and sometimes this hose becomes loose and falls off the connection. When this happens, the water in the tub usually overflows. To solve this problem, cut about 1/2 inch off the end of the hose and use a push fit to reconnect it to the switch.

The switch itself can also malfunction, resulting in tub overflow and other water-level trouble in the tub. If you suspect this switch is faulty, remove it by backing out the screws holding it in place. Take it to a professional service person for testing. If the switch is faulty, replace it with a new one of the same size and type. Connect the new switch the same way the old one was connected..PLEASE RATE IT......

I have a Fisher and Paykel Smartdrive 9 washing machine that won't fill. It starts then stops and continues to do so, then stops altogether and beeps. Can anyone help??


The error code is displayed when its beeping.
I don't know the error code, so It can only be three things,
Out of balance switch,Lid magnetic reed switch,Or Rotor position sensor,Your error code would help me work out witch one of these are faulty. to work out your error code look at picture below.
Add up the lights that are on.

F & P Smartdrive 708 has all lights showing when powering on, but will not start wash cycle. Have tried turning off at wall to re-set; taken lid off but still no go


take the motor shroud with the magnets in it off you will probably find corrosion on the terminals on the small circuit board clean it off, whilst you are at it check your pump is spinning freely if not pull it off and dismantle it clean the rotor it may have a rust buildup on it, when putting it back together give the bearing holder a few taps to centre the shaft before you tighten the screws completely, if it tightens up when you tighten the screws give it another couple of taps either side of the bearings until it frees up

Wont stop filling


If when you press pause while filling and it keeps filling then you have a faulty valve. If the filling stops then valve is ok.
If you filling keeps going until overfilling the machine which is what i understand is your problem, then most likely that you have a small pinhole in your pressure tube.

Smartdrive 708


The out of balance micro-switch is faulty/corroded. This switch is located under the motor control module on the right of the machine and is activated by a plastic lever that goes down beside the outer tub. Replace the micro-switch.
