It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If there is no power it can be due to a failure of the power supply.

not familliar with that exact model number ( we dont have that over here in the US) we have simalair f&p gwl10- gwl11) that problem sounds as if either the pump is bad and overheating before pumping all the water or a diverter valve is not fully closing allowing water to remain in tub.

SOURCE: How to I get to the pump on my Fisher & Paykel

If machine has water in it, bucket out as much as you can.

To access pump:
-Pull machine forward and lean it backwards so you can access under machine.
-On the front right hand side, you will see a fan blade- this is the drain pump. This fan blade should spin freely if you turn it by hand.
-To remove pump: remove plug connection that has 2 wires. Remove other plug connection that has 1 wire. On the top of the pump assembly, you will see a white plastic tag, about a 40mm long horizontally across the pump- gently pull tag towards you, and turn complete pump unit anti clockwise- whole pump will drop out (don't force it, it should come out easily) *Note* if there is water in machine still, it will come out when you remove pump assembly- be ready with some towels!!
-Check pump impellor(blade on other end of pump) is free from obstruction, and turns easily. Check with your finger to see if there is any obstruction in the hole where the pump has come out of (inside bowl).
-You can test pump with an ohm meter (should be approx 37ohms from memory)
Reassemble and test for leaks etc

SOURCE: Fisher and Paykel GWL08: Will Not Power ON

Hello,

It's been a while since I fixed mine... So I am not sure if this fixes your problem. For some reason, some of the electronic components (touch panel) get wet inside. You need to take out the electronics touch panel, wipe it off, if wet (BTW it is not difficult). Make sure you know where and how everything goes back together. On mine, I found rocker switch that got wet and corroded. If found the model on line (Cherry Semiconductor, ordered it and now works

SOURCE: fisher & paykel washing machine fault codes

I have a Fisher & Paykel GW609AU Smartdrive Excellence 6.5 Washing Machine that would start then stop then start then stop a few more times before eventually beeping.
I fixed it by bypassing(joined the white and yellow wire) the trip out switch which is located under the control module(one screw to remove).Now it Works.

Unplug the machine have someone tilt the machine back and look under the machine for a little fan on a motor give it a turn to see if it spins it might just be sticky or it may need replacing.

My Fisher & Paykel 708 smart drive washing machine won't starts and beeps.


That is Error code 9
9.
(00001001) Phase 1 to 5 - Size Error
Phase 4 to 5
The Display size switch setting does not match that stored in memory.
Action - Reselect the size of Smartdrive by using the SIZE SETTING MODE. Push and hold
the water temp up button, then press the power button to enter SIZE SETTING MODE. Three
LEDs are used to identify size. The cold water temperature LED identifies 5kg. The low water
level LED identifies 6kg. The hold spin speed LED identifies 7kg. If the product has not been
setup before all 3 LEDs will be on. To set the size for 5kg push the wash temp up button then
the power button. To set the size for 6kg push the water level up button then the power button.
To set the size for 7kg push the spin speed up button then the power button. This locks the size
into memory. To check the size is set, start a cycle.

Fisher & paykel smart drive 9 mw059au no power


Most of the faults are pump related.
check the Ohms reading on pump should be 33- 35
If readings are less change your pump.

FISHER & Paykel 6.5 Smart Drive - No display lights


You need to get hold of a multi-meterand check the resistance of the pump, It should be 33ohms or close to it, the pump is part of the power circuit and the machine will appear dead if it has blown or is unplugged, If the machine was running without the earth wire to the pump connected and the pump had a fault/blockage there is a very good chance that it has blown the motor controller module. It requires the earth to provide a fault path to earth.

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.
