Washing machine slow to drain and clothes dirty

My fisher & paykel smart drive is about 10 years old and over the last month it is taking ages to drain out water between cycles. A normal cycle now taking about 2 hours. Also the clothes are coming out with scrud over some of them and not overly clean. I opened up the fabric softener (which I never use by the way) and it was really filthy inside so gave it a bit of a clean but obviously not enough. I also pretty much only use cold or cold/warm cycles. Could it just be that my machine needs a good clean/water blast or is something stuck in it.

I have came across this problem in the past and [yes] you are spot on.it is possible that something is preventing the water leaving the machine.but lets try this first;take a simple dishwasher tablet and put inside the drum with some dish clothes or some old cleaning rags repeat this twice ;then return to normal washing cycle.I think you will see a vast improvement.adrian

Fisher and Paykel washing machine


Without being smart...buy a new machine. It sounds as though the timer is dying...therefore slowing down...therefore extending cycle times. If that's the case, a new timer will cost about half the cost of a new machine.

I'm renovating and need to move the taps to the smart drive washing machine. Do the taps need to be higher than the machine or can they be the same height. I will be juggling window and door positions too....


No, not the supply lines, the are selonoid controlled by the timer. however the drain line MUST be higher the clothes drum or the water will siphon drain out.

Fisher and Paykel Washer leaking water


hi there,

the leak underneath could be from the pump or the drain hose. some washers have a tub to pump boot that sometimes springs a leak.

for a 4-month-old washer, i would certainly hope you pay nothing. F&P appliances come with at least a 2 year warranty. check your user & care guide for warranty information.

I was given a 2nd hand Fisher & Paykel SmartDrive051 washing machine a few months ago but now it is not filling with water or agitating in order to wash the clothes.


if some sort of control and lights on but just doesnt start then lid switch. if beeping instead of start then its found a fault. its well over 10 years old , may not be worth repair
