    I have a Fisher and Paykel 7.5 kg Smart Drive 708 (about 9 years old). A week ago it developed a fault that once I select wash, it senses (i.e., rotor moves) and start filling the water. After a minute or so the machine stops, start beeping (and the water temperature setting changes to cold - hot) and control panel selections blink. Then if a reset by pushing the pause button, the machines start again as normal and start filling the water but stops again in minutes or so (same episode as before). I can select rinse or spin and it will do the function normally but it does not complete the whole cycle automatically as it use to do before. (The wash cycle when the rotor spins for several minutes to wash the clothes seems not happening.



    Please advise do I need to resent the control (if yes how) or if I need to do something substantial. If so is it worth getting this machine repaired or should I go for a new one.

The out of balance micro-switch is faulty/corroded. This switch is located under the motor control module on the right of the machine and is activated by a plastic lever that goes down beside the outer tub. Replace the micro-switch.

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.

No water flow on Fisher and Paykel smartdrive 708 washing machine


Take the lid off,just open it & pull it straight up.There should be a little red button that the lid strikes against unless its a different model,in that case it has a magnetic reed switch under the right hand side of the hob.press this red switch instead of closeing lid,see if it fill with no problem.the lid may not be making good contact with switch..if thats not it then it may be the inlet valve..then you can try the hot,if theres no problem with hot then its the cold valve.

F & P Smartdrive 708 has all lights showing when powering on, but will not start wash cycle. Have tried turning off at wall to re-set; taken lid off but still no go


take the motor shroud with the magnets in it off you will probably find corrosion on the terminals on the small circuit board clean it off, whilst you are at it check your pump is spinning freely if not pull it off and dismantle it clean the rotor it may have a rust buildup on it, when putting it back together give the bearing holder a few taps to centre the shaft before you tighten the screws completely, if it tightens up when you tighten the screws give it another couple of taps either side of the bearings until it frees up

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.
