Smart drive 085

the buzzing noise is the pump trying to work, but it cannot due to a blockage. unplug the washer and you can lean the washer backwards and remove the pump to unblock. the fill error is probably unrelated, and is an inlet valve issue.

Burning Smell on Fisher and Paykel GW11 on spin and is not getting up to speed on spin cycle. Motor Bad?

Hi just read your posting.In my experience the only part on a Fisher and Paykel top loader machine that creates a burning smell is the pump.Try looking under the machine and you will see a black fan.This is your pump.Check to see if it has corrosion on it with a torch and try smelling it.I am sure you will find it is the pump that is smelling.Please reply for additional help and tell me how you got on with checking the pump.Looking forward to your reply.

I have a fisher paykel GWL10 washing machine. It shuts off while

At this stage i can suggest that the inlet valve may be faulty & giving off this burning the control box & see if one of the 2 inlet valves look distorted or brown or burnt looking.I'm wondering if it's not filling very fast also,this could also be an indication of the valve.

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.

Fisher & Paykel Pride 5.5 Smartdrive 8 not spining

There is a transmission clutch that engages for the spin cycle. A gear has worn or broken a tooth. Replacement of the transmission hispeed spin cycle assembly is required.

The other comments are of no use. You must get parts from an Authorized Fisher & Paykel dealer, or have an authorized repairman service the machine.
