Question about Fisher and Paykel Washing Machines

1 Answer

Where is the lid switch on a Smartdrive 603? We have lost the lid (on the highway) and now cant use the machine.

I understand a correctly placed magnet will allow the machine to work but we cant see a switch. :(

Put your magnet on the right front 100mm in and it should work.

SOURCE: Machine is not able to detect lid is closed or not

And I bet you thought those foreign machines where better made , right?

Get a new magnet from a parts supplier, or mfg (In Korea) and reinstall in the right place. Cross your fingers.

Try taking the cold hose of at the tap and check to see if has a little mesh filter in there. This could be blocked up with gunk.

Take the lid off,just open it & pull it straight up.There should be a little red button that the lid strikes against unless its a different model,in that case it has a magnetic reed switch under the right hand side of the hob.press this red switch instead of closeing lid,see if it fill with no problem.the lid may not be making good contact with switch..if thats not it then it may be the inlet valve..then you can try the hot,if theres no problem with hot then its the cold valve.

It appears your magnetic lid switch has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

My smartdrive pride lid came off and I fixed it but now the machine won't work, any suggestions please?


Possible that the lid switch alignment is not proper and so does not activate when the lid is closed. Please reset this lid once again and check the switch continuity with a meter when the lid is shut

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.

Smartdrive 708 does nothing when I press start button.


There is a magnetic switch under the right hand side of the hob (what the lid shuts onto). You can short the 2 wires out that goto this switch safely and try that, but it isn't recommended to leave it like that as the machine can run with the lid open.

Hope this helps!?
