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

Sounds like your pump is blocked. **UNPLUG the machine**. lift or drag the machine to a spot where you can let the water dump out. The water comes out fast and makes a big mess. Tilt the machine back. On the front-right underside of the machine you will see the pump with the fan hanging down. Unplug the white plug and the earth cable from the back of the pump. You might notice that there is a white plastic clip that you can move to the side. Hold the clip out and twist the pump clockwise. At this point the pump will drop out and water will go everywhere. Try and take the pump out kinda fast so that the coil does not get too wet while the water is dropping out. you might find a blockage (coil, hair clip, underwire etc) sticking out from where the pump impeller sits. Pull out your blockage and check that the pump spins freely when you spin it by hand. If it does not spin freely you need a new pump.

Now, after you unblock your pump, you can put it back together the same way you took it off. Make sure the white plug is not wet before plugging it into the pump and make sure the pump coil is dry too! use a blowdryer to dry for a minute if unsure. When twisting the pump back in, the wires should be at the back of the machine and the earth cable is kinda close to the rotor (motor). Make sure the pump is sitting flat so the seal works too. That clip should click lock back into place to hold the pump from turning. The washer will not spin until all the water is out in case you are wondering. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: fisher paykel Washing machine stops spinning then resumes.

This sounds like it could be a faulty door lock switch. The switch can be tested for continuity using a multimeter. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty switch. Hope this helped and best wishes.

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.

Can i use my washing machine with no lid switch


as long as everything is working it's ok,all it is is a safety switch so the washer won't run with the lid open,a kid could open the lid when it's spinning and it won't shut down and if the kid sticks his or her hand or arm inside it could get ugly so it's a safety switch that's it.

Water fills in, but wash cycle won't start. spin cycle works, changed motor still won't work


Its either in the lid switch or timer. Examine the lid switch. Try starting the wash cycle and press in on lid switch to make sure it activates. If the lid switch is good and you dont hear the motor trying to activate during wash than its in the timer. Does the timer advance? Please comment me back If you need further assistance.

Smartdrive 7.5k f & p. First problem was that keeps beeping and wont start. Had technician and he did a bypass, which the lid can be open and will not stop the machine. It worked but have another...


First, the technician bypassed the lid switch which is a safety feature. The lid switch should be repaired / replaced -- this keeps the machine from spinning when the lid is up.

Secondly, the likely cuase of the machine overfilling is a malfunctioining water-level sensing sub-system. This system has a tube run from the bottom of the tub to a diaphragm pressure switch -- this switch shuts off the water inlet when the water gets to the proper level. The tube may be loose / disconnected / leaking, or the pressure switch may have loose conections or may be faulty.

More info, let me know.

No water flow on Fisher and Paykel smartdrive 708 washing machine


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.
