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 :-)

    When set to cold wash, water fills at a trickle. But if on warm wash it fills at a more normal pace. Have tried turning off at the wall and restarting. Filled it with a bucket on occasion.

    Sounds like i have the same problem.


    It pumps in water fir a few seconds, stops, starts...etc, etc,
    When i try and advance the program to the Spin cycles the water pump does a similar thing stop start stop start every 2 seconds.


    The strange thing is it seemed to fix itself for about 5 weeks but it has started doing it again every time i use it.

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

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.

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

The machine stops at wash cycle every minute or so


Firstly, the model 708 is way more than 9 years old. More like 18 - 19 years old. There is 2 types of errors on a smartdrive. One is signalled by a single beep every second & the top row of lights will change. The 2nd is a rippling musical sound (like when you turn the power on at the wall) and some lights will be blinking. You need to tell us what sound it is and which lights are blinking or which of the top row lights are on (exactly, count from the right to left and which number is on & which is off) There is no such thing as a reset to do. Once I know the fault I can advise you what to do about it.

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.
