Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

My fisher and paykel awf60md turns itself off completely before it drains after 10 mins washing. I turn it off at the wall then back on and it starts again washing then it turns off again just before it drains? Does the same on drain cycle or spin cycle.

SOURCE: washing machine will not spin or drain

look at my post "eco smart won't drain, smells hot". It could be something stuck in very lowest part fo drainage area. you have to remove the motor on bottom of washer to see into this area and remove blockage.

We had the same problem with our washing machine being full of water and beeping during the rinse cycle. The problem is that the filter, which is located under the washing machine, is plugged with something. Ours was plugged with a cotton swab. You have to tip the washing machine up and remove the filter and unplug it. The filter is in the center of the bottom of the machine. It twists off. I had to get the cotton swab out of inside the machine through this opening.
This machine plugs up a lot - I've never experience this with any other washing machine. Good Luck!

Hello I have a Fisher and paykel 7.5g smart drive excellence washing machine it doesn't spin and I can smell something burning.thanku Kelly


Has it drained the water out. It will not spin until completely empty. If it is not draining then Iwould say the burning smell is the drain pump overheating. Do not try to run it like that as the drain pump will short out the main control board eventually. Bail the water out by hand, tip the machine back against the wall and check the pump on the front right side of bowl. Replace the pump.

Where is the pump and filter situated in a fisher and paykel 501 washing machine


These machines don't have filters,
All lint is pumped out with the grey water.
Turn off power & water taps before you remove the pump.
To remove pump tilt machine back on a 45 degree angle
against a wall, locate the white plastic pump lock tab push out and turn pump anticlockwise.

Not pumping water out


Hi just read your post.Now is the machine full of water? If it is, drain most of the water by hand with a small pot or bowl.When you have removed most of the water pull the machine away from the back wall and lean it back so you can look under neath the machine.To the right of the machine you will see a little black fan,this is the pump.Make sure the power is off at the wall ,now turn the fan clockwise and anticlockwise.The fan should spin freely.If it does put the machine back on the ground and turn the machine on and select a spin cycle and it should start to drain.If it does not drain or the fan is hard to turn please reply and I can help you further.Regards LU.

My fisher paykel washer smells like something is getting too hot and melting plastic when it starts the rinse cycle then it starts beeping and shuts off. I have had this machine about 2 years and had to...


Check the drain pump after it has been draining for a while. Drain the water out, turn power off at wall. Tip the machine back against the wall. Look under the front right hand corner and locate the drain pump. Touch the metal part & see if it is very hot. Should be just luke warm. Very hot means it has to be replaced with a new pump now before it burns out and damages the control board.

Washing not getting clean


ok, try this before you consider removing the bowl. 1st-- buy 2 pkts of bicarb of soda. 2nd---make sure machine has no clothes in it. 3rd-- empty the 2 pkts of bicarb of soda into the bowl. 4th-- select traditional wash mode , high water level, hot water fill. 5th-- push start. 6th-- let it fill and wash for about 5 to 10 min, then turn the machine off. DO NOT LET THE WASH CYCLE GET TO THE DRAIN OUT STAGE. ok now the machine is full water and bicarb of soda and turned off, LEAVE IT TILL THE NEXT MORNING.-- In the morning select traditional wash mode, high water level, hot fill , then push the start button. let it go thru the complete cycle and all the lint and dirt should be removed from the bowl. by the way once it has started to wash lift the lid and see if the agitator is working. good luck and please reply to tell me how you got on.

Washer will not drain water out properly

The drain pump is jammed. Switch off and remove the plug from the wall socket. Tilt the machine back so you can look under it. On the right you will see a motor which looks like it is upside down. This is your drain pump. Remove the wiring harness from the pump and turn the pump clockwise while pulling back the little white plastic clip which holds the pump in place. Clean thoroughly and replace pump.
