It sounds like there's a problem in the water inlet system. The machine repeats the process several times because of the Restart Feature which retries starting the machine to correct the problem. The machine completely stops and sounds the alarm because the Restart Feature failed to correct the problem. The fault code is indicated as a series of flashing Wash Progress LEDs.

Indicate explicitly which among the Wash Progress LEDs are lit or flashing to determine what and where the problem really is for further troubleshooting. You don't have to accept or reject and rate this post to add information, comments, and follow-up questions. But accepting the solution will not terminate your communication with the expert. You may continue communicating with the expert as long as you need assistance regarding the issue stated herein.

Firstly,I am not a service technician,I am a mechanical fitter, I do however try to find solutions to problems before calling the pro's.Sometimes,and in this case it works.
3,5,7,8 code lights indicate an "out of balance fault" Fault 43 according to F&P, It is not a hard job to fix, you will need a new/second hand micro-switch and possibly 2 female spade electrical connectors,a pair of crimping pliers, a star/philips head screwdriver,and a flat blade screwdriver.
Firstly you need to electrically isolate the machine, ie. pull the plug from the power outlet. Then remove the 2 screws at the back of the control pannel,lift from the back and it unclips at the front, lay it on its face. We need to get access to the out of balance switch which it to the right of and under the electrionic control box.Remove the single screw holding the electonics box(black box) and move wires so as to allow the box to be lifted up just enough out of the way to access the switch. Use a flat blade srewdriver or strong fingers to unclip and remove the microswitch, replace the switch but inspect the spade terminals for corrosion, replace if corroded. There is a waterproof upgrade for this problem from your dealer. Or you can do what I did and get some spare switches from other electronic devises, they are quite common. The part number for the switches I am using is 120727C.Mine came from the door switch of a microwave oven, but before pulling apart your microwave read up on them as they have a different set of safety rules. Good Luck with it.

When you start your machine is the water just go stop go stop,
Just wait for the machine to display an error code on the wash progress lights and beeps constantly.
It could be the Rotor Position Sensor, out of balance switch or lid magnetic reed switch.
Your error code will determine this.
Is your machine beeping & showing a weird pattern of lights on the wash cycle, It is displaying an error code,
To read this error code you start at the red spin light & work to the left only add up the lights that are on. Red spin light = 1 2nd rinse light =2 1st rinse light =4 last wash light=8 4th wash light=16 3rd wash light=32 2nd wash light=64 1st wash light=128

A failed inlet valve is not uncommon in F&P machines. The hot valve is different to the cold one, so don't exchange them. Not a big job for a tech to do in-laundry. Good luck....Nomess

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

F&P Smartdrive 058 filling in short bursts then stopping.


I had the same problem today. shephonos 18 had the correct diagnosis. Out of balance micro switch seized. Situated under the main circuit board. Cherry electric Corp 0.1amp 125 volt sptd type switch. jaycar has them for under $4.
I un-seized it with some electrical cleaning spray, fixed itshort term, no worries.
Thanks Stephanos 18.
