Question about Fisher and Paykel IWL12 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

My Fisher and Paykel smartdrive is making noise

The screaming noise is only on spin cycle and much louder than it used to be. Could it be a dry bearing in the gear box? If so can this be fixed?

My fisher and paykel eco washer spins weirdly and makes lots of noises


Noisy
If the user is complaining about noise, it may be in a number of different areas. Is the noise during
spin? Is it a banging sound? This would typically be the drain hose, inlet hoses, mains lead or
harness. If it is an out of balance noise, check that the machine is level and stable. Check the
bias spring and balance rings. Remove the inner bowl and check that its weight is within
specification (Refer Section 1.12).
If it is a 'clunk' that occurs up to 3 times per cycle, this would be a bowl check and is completely
normal. It occurs when SmartDrive is draining and 3/4 empty. This is a 'feature' and a noise that
cannot be reduced.
Other things to check are:
• Is SmartDrive level and on all four feet equally.
• Check the mains lead, inlet hoses and drain hose outside the wrapper, behind SmartDrive.
• Check the harness and drain hose inside is not banging on the wrapper during spin.
• Check the bias spring is fitted correctly.
• Check the 2 balance rings in the inner bowl contain water. Check the bowl weight.
• Check for noisy suspension rods.

Fisher and Paykel GW708F Screaming like a jet engine on spin!


Hi there

Yea if the machine sounds like a train going through the middle of your house when its on spin it will most definately by your seals and bearings, an easy way to check is lean the machine back onto something and look underneath if the main seal is leaking and the bearings are run there will be rusty looking residue on the motor rotor(the round thing in the middle of the drum), seals and bearings are fairly expensive to replace About $350NZD if no shaft is needed and up to $500NZD if a replacement shaft is needed.

I hope this helps you out.

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.
