F&P Smart drive 9

Once I have turned it on, it starts to fill for around 10seconds, then stops, starts again for around 5seconds, then stops again...starts again then stops,then just beeps at me, I have tried advancing to the spin cycle, but same things happens in any stage of the cycle, Have turned machine off and then started again, but still no luck, love to be able to fix this myself if possible Thank you :-)

I have the same problem but it has both hot and cold water setup and has done for years. This problem occurs on any setting; size, temp, speed. no luck here either

Re: F&P Smart drive 9

I had the same problem.

You probably only have cold water connected and you need to "program" it for cold water only.

By default it expects both cold and hot water connected and even though you can select "cold" it will still error if not hot water supply is present.

Call Fisher & Paykel customer care and they will tell you how to re-code it for cold only.

Fisher and Paaykel Smart Drive 708 not working once filled with water.

You need to check your lid switch & out of balance switch for
corrosion and replace if faulty.
Your out of balance switch is under the big yellow motor controller
OOB switch Is where the grey plate is on this picture.

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

Spin the fan on water pump (you can acess with difficulty from bottom of washer) if it has a little sand in it, it may clear. It is possible to remove water pump if mechanically minded and see if something small eg staple or 5c coin is stuck in it if this dosn't work or you may find you need to replace water pump.
