Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Washing machine wil not fill - tries several times then stops and all lights except 4 go out

Fisher-Paykel Samrtdrive 7.5 when starting machine - water starts filling - then stops, then starts filling again then stops every 10 to 15 secs after few seconds then starts again - repeats this several times then all lights go - including temp, cycle type etc except for 4 lights on top row which indicates wash phase. The 4 lights on are - two green wash lights - not together though ie separated by one green wash light which is out - Also red spin light is on and orange light next to red rinse also stays on. Reading left to right from Spin light we have - red Spin on, orange next to it on, Orange rinse off, green wash on, next green wash off then next green on, then every other light on entire panel off.

That would be the balance switch, should be located rear right under the main board. over time the switch becomes jamed in the on position and the machine always thinks its off balance. $4 to $10 for a new one.

Starts and stops


A failed inlet valve is not uncommon in F&P machines. The hot valve is different to the cold one, so don't exchange them. Not a big job for a tech to do in-laundry. Good luck....Nomess

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.
