Hello,

A leading cause of that is a bearing in the main center pulley under the base where the belt is has worn out. It's not as bad as it sounds and the pulley/bearing kit is reasonably priced. If it were something you wanted to try to do yourself the part number is 12002213 it could be found line at

or look in your phone book and finda appliance parts retailer in your area

I hope this helps

Hi.

Unfortunately the service documentation for Elba is not available. Although the machine has been built by F&P and although is similar to a Fisher & Paykel Smartdrive there are some small difference. The clutch system may be similar to the smartdrive. I have uploaded the service manuals for two smart drive models below, see if that can help. Check section about disassembly.

SOURCE: washing machine won't spin & drain

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

We would not normally answer this without you telling us the make and model!

However-
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter- so many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters.
Following are my complete and hopefully 'coverall' pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.
(If these actions have not cured the problem, it could be the control board OR the main motor. Motors will show weaknesses when commanded to spin.)

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Hi.

Check for drain blockage at the filter. Check setting of drain hose at the back. If there is no drain problem check pressure switch, central control unit and pump motor.

this can be a motor control fault, and sometimes a fault with the motor itself, test motor windings for equal resistance, and check motor physically for wear / damage. replace motor controller.

Elba washer is not washing or spinning right...the only thing its doing is adding water


I couldn't tell if the water was draining. When you advance the cycle to spin the first thing it should do is drain the water. This will happen for a short time before it spins. If it is not draining then you need to check the drain pump for blockages( and pipes) the machine will not spin with water in it! If it is draining but not spinning then it is probably a faulty lid switch and needs replacing. There are a couple of other causes but they will usually create a fault code which you don't seem to have. Most likely blocked or faulty drain pump.

What does this mean? My machine is very new & won't drain it won't go through a full cycle & won't spin properly now it's bleeping with this flashing up on it!


Turn off machine and check water waste filter to see if blocked should be at front at bottom of machine or at back,not sure this is the cure but hope it helps

Sounds like corrosion in the motherboard . Get an electronics serviceman to take a look, could just need soldering point to point connection. Hope this helps.
