Question about Fisher and Paykel Washing Machines

1 Answer

Now and then my Smart Drive Fisher and Pykel squeals when starting to spin.

Just every now and then when doing a wash I hear the machine starting to squeal when starting to spin but it does not do this each and every time. I think it is when there is a larger load in the machine.

    Thanks for your suggestions but I have been told the smart drive excellence does not have belts. Could it be a bearing and how difficult is it to replace.

You will need the seal & bearing kit & maybe a shaft,
It is a big job to do,
The whole machine will need to be disassembled to do that repair.

SOURCE: loud squeal during wash and spin cycles, maytag atlantis washer

Squealing normal occurs due to belt slippage. I would check your belts (look for cracks. Check the belt tension as well, most washers have an adjustment, normally on the motor that allows you to increase the tension of the belt.

If part of a belt gets torn and it is long enough, it will hit any part of the washing machine within range and make a clicking noise at every revolution of the motor.

I am pretty sure you need new belts. You should be able to remove a few screws and open the back cover. Between the pulleys there is a tensioner...loosen that so you can remove the belt easily. replace it with a new belt and adjust the tension.

hope this helps

hi there these washing machines don't have any pelts or pulley's. Washer will need new seals and bearings witch is a big job, you wont be able to do it your self as you need special tools to put the bearings back in :)

I have a Fisher & Paykel GW609AU Smartdrive Excellence 6.5 Washing Machine that would start then stop then start then stop a few more times before eventually beeping.
I fixed it by bypassing(joined the white and yellow wire) the trip out switch which is located under the control module(one screw to remove).Now it Works.

Unplug the machine have someone tilt the machine back and look under the machine for a little fan on a motor give it a turn to see if it spins it might just be sticky or it may need replacing.

Error 49 on a Fisher and Pykel washing machine, what can i do to resolve this?? Thankyou.


Your cold valve is faulty. The rubber membrance inside the valve can damaged after certain period of time. The problem may be inside the controller if replcement valve can't fix the problem. There is a resistor on the current path to the valve. It is on the control board. Some timems it can go open. Good luck with the repair

It won't spin until all the water is drained out. The drain pump may be blocked or faulty. Fix the drain pump fault first then deal with the filling issue. They will not be related.

Hi I have a fisher and pykel fresh smart drive 9 and its filled up with water but wont drain,ive tried advancing the cycle but all I get is a humming noise.please help


The humming noise is due to the drain pump being jammed due to clogging of dirt. All you need is to remove the drain pump and do a full clean up. You can also try to tap on the drain pump while it is humming as it will release the dirt and wash off.

Spin the fan on water pump (you can acess with difficulty from bottom of washer) if it has a little sand in it, it may clear. It is possible to remove water pump if mechanically minded and see if something small eg staple or 5c coin is stuck in it if this dosn't work or you may find you need to replace water pump.
