Hi everybody, I am experiencing problems with this washing machines pump. I am pretty sure it is a pump blockage. How do I get to the pump to clean this? Are there any blueprints for the engine/internals of this machine? I am clueless. Thankyou

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.

Tipped the washing machine over to tip out the washing and water, gave the thing a shake, hit some parts with a soft faced hammer adn she worked!

I think that process dislodged a blockage in the water pump...

F & P Smartdrive Excellence works fine until it reaches the rinse and then just makes whirring noise. I can't get it to spin either and it won't empty. Is there a way of at least draining it. Cheers...

Hi Kiri,

F&P mahcines are a little hard to drain as the drain hose comes out of the rear of the cabinet half way up.

You may have to use a small container and manually bucket it out.

The drain pump is more than likely blocked (seen this a lot on the F&P) and is accessable from the front panel or underneath the machine.

Repost if you need anymoe help!
