SOURCE: Smart Drive 703-strange noise during wash cycle

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 :)

SOURCE: smart drive 708 7.5kg toploader.

HI - A 708 EH! A BIT OF AN OLDIE - ANYWAY THE PROBLEM SHOULD BE THE DOOR SWITCH NOT OPERATING.

OK - to repair - unplug the power source - remove 2 screws back top corners, lift the display unit & lay on the lid - on the right side got all the wires going down the machine - locate the first plug has 4 wires , wh - Y- Bl & Bl - BK/BL are thinner and both goes with the rest of the wires & the other 2 you will note goes under the controller - cut & strip the BK/BL so the copper is exposed - use a proper elect connector twist together these exposed wires & join inside the connector.

Assemble & enjoy.

CAUTION - this in effect will overide the lids effectiveness - whilst the machine is operational the opening of the lid will not pause/stop the machine in its tracks like how it should be. Be wary the user safety has been compromised - otherwise try to obtain a replacement if still available for these particular series...

Cheers

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.

Fisher and Paaykel Smart Drive 708 not working once filled with water.


You need to check your lid switch & out of balance switch for
corrosion and replace if faulty.
Your out of balance switch is under the big yellow motor controller
OOB switch Is where the grey plate is on this picture.

Our Fisher and Paykel excellence 5.5 smart drive 9, washes fine but when it comes on rinse cycle it wont drain the water and makes a humming sound.


Check your pump with a multimeter for correct reading
230V AC Pump 50Hz 33Ohms +/- 8% @ 20oC
110V AC Pump 60Hz 7Ohms +/- 8% @ 20oC
Also check for blockages that may stop pump from turning.
Disconnect from power & Bail out all the water you can before removing pump.

The smart drive 708 on any wash cycles has poor water flow..ie the water seems to be filling up very slowly and the normal wash cycle takes 2hrs


Hi Challe340, Sounds like your machines Inlet solinoid valve that supplys water to your machine may have a clogged internal diaphagm, its quite normal for it to clogg up due to high sediment build up in the water mains over the years and seeing that the machine is a smart drive 708 it probly hasnt had inlet replacement in it entire life. As for the normal wash cycle taking so long could be due to restriction in water flow from the faulty inlet valve slowing down the water fill segments in its rinsing cycle stage, hope this help.

UE displayed on panel westinghouse 708 washing machine near end of cycle shows 6 mins left on spin then shows UE, cannot go into normal cycle.


I WOULD TRY TO LOOK AT THE DRAIN PUMP ASSEMBLY ON THE UNIT.... IT IS EITHER STOPPED UP OR NOT PUMPING FAST ENOUGH OUT DUE TO DEBRI IN THE PUMP AREA... GAIN ACCESS TO THE DRAIN PUMP AREA AND REMOVE HOSES AND LOOK INSIDE AREA.
the code data base for this is saying ue = drain failure... hope this helps you out

I have a Westinghouse mastermind 708 washing machine and it does not spin after wash cycl. i think it might be the pump to pump water out, it still makes a humming noise


I would check the internal coin trap/drain to make sure it is not blocked with socks or 3-in1 dryer sheets. If the water does not drain it backs up and causes error messages and spin problems. These are normally not listed in the manual so you have to take off a panel to find it. Could be at the bottom or in the back. Unscrew and check the trap and remove any blockage. Prepare for a mess if you can't fit a bucket under the trap!
