The wires have stretched some wires have broken.
Those wires can be put back in the plug,
Get a paper clip and push the pin out from the back of the plug
remove broken insulation left in the plug cut wire clean insert into plug and tap the pin down with small flat blade screwdriver.

Turn machine OFF on the front panel. Hold down the Water Temp Down button and press the POWER button. Release buttons. You are in Diagnostic mode.With your service sheet ,Diagnostic chart will explain where the error lights pattern and the path to your solution are.My advice is this....there is a known problem with the wire harness connectors,and the contact that is made at the point of connection.One at a time remove each connector starting at your main control board ,some where there is a loose connection.

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.

It does not seem like a problem of the unit. It might be a loose connection of supply code. Keep the supply code pressed to the unit in different directions and see if the unit takes power. If so, replace the supply code. It's not that expensive.

Fisher&paykel ,smart drive excellence 7 .5 ,the washing machine stopped working during the pumping out of the water.no power on the top panel and a slight humming noise


What is it? No power to panel or slight humming sound which indicated there is power? Can't be both. I would suggest that the humming sound if you put it on spin, will be the drain pump trying to go. If pump is left humming like that it will get hot & shut the power off until it cools down again. Pump hums when it has a blockage & can'y spin. Clear the blockage.

Fisher and paykel GW709 error codes 01001111


those numbers suggest code 79, which is not a fault code. but by the sounds of it, you just have blocked pump. turn off and lean back machine, unscrew pump (front right) and clear blockage. you may want to empyt water before unscrewing pump.

Our Fisher and Paykel excellence 5.5 smart drive 9, washes fine but when it comes on rinse cycle it wont drain the water and makes a humming sound.


Check your pump with a multimeter for correct reading
230V AC Pump 50Hz 33Ohms +/- 8% @ 20oC
110V AC Pump 60Hz 7Ohms +/- 8% @ 20oC
Also check for blockages that may stop pump from turning.
Disconnect from power & Bail out all the water you can before removing 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.

F&P washing machine:GW709 doesn't cut out when filling


could b pressure switch tube is blocked or your control board with the pressure switch attached is faulty. empty water from machine, remove pressure switch hose from control board, blow thru tube to remove any blockages, refit tube. turn on cycle, select low water level, push start, after about 30sec"s push start again, that should stop it filling straight away. if the water stops push start again to continue filling. if it doesnt stop filling after restarting the cycle then it is your control module.if the water doesnt stop filling after the 30 sec stop it is the water valves. by the way what country do u live in because $120 seems to b alittle too expensive. please reply 4 more help.

Fisher & paykel smart drive 601, power to board, won't fill


If it isn/t doing anything at all it could be a faulty start switch on the display panel. Also make sure you can hear an audible click when you open and close the lid. The lid switch on a 601 is actuated on the right hand back of lid adjust as required. Hope this helps.
