F&P Smart Drive #703 trouble

I had trouble with what seemed to have been the bearings getting seized up, so I changed them myself and followed the instructions in th manual as close as possible however there is no changes to the response from the motor. When spinning it by hand it seem that it is very hard to and when I reassembled the Rotor into the Strator, I noticed that more I was screwing the rotor more it was getting hard to spin it.Seems that it sounded like the magnets were stopping it to spin freely.If I screw the Rotor half way is course then it would spin freely. If I start the machine with such a hard turn on the Strator, the beeper would start as soon as the motor is engaged to spin. I can't find the reason why would the magnets on the Rotor creates the hard-to-spin situation. Please, help! NB.: By-the-way, the note in the Manual about the Radial Movement of the Strator indicating that the Strator is correctly not feasable. Cheers

Hello where can I find the error codes for a fisher and paykel smart drive 703? It stops usually during s pins cycle (well it looks like it's trying to spins and it won't start).so it stops and...

Hi - what would youlike to know - we are forbidden by contractual & copyright laws to provide what you seek..

Besides you are lucky if parts for the 703 is still in existence - only savvy techs could salvage those as you have to modify wiring & components for it to work. I have only done this once in the Pacific islands some years ago.

Fisher Paykel washing machine Smartdrive 703 Advance, Power and Start buttons are non responsive when pushed. Is there a part that can fix this. Does the control panel have to be replaced?

Fisher & Paykel Smart Drive beeps and stops during rinse cycle. If I hit pause and wait and restart it eventually continues. It seems like it has problems detecting water level.

TROUBLE CHANGING BEARINGS, DUE TO BEARING SHaft pushing through the bearing as we try to draw the drive end bearing off with bearing pulleys

You will have to remove the complete drum and shaft assy from the washer to change the bearing/s, there is no other way of doing it unfortunately.

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 :)
