Fisher and Paykel washing machine broken start button

My Fisher and Paykel Smart drive 503 top loading washing machine wont start. I have had a looky and i think there is just a problem with the start button, can anyone please tell me am i able to just replace this button or do i need to replace the entire Display Module? Prior to opening up the display module i noted that it said ' no field serviceable parts' which mad me think i might need to replace the entire module? which seems like such a waste when all the rest of the buttons work fine? Any thoughts on how much these cost? thanks, jules

Sounds like you've got the nous to fix it. They're a straightforward machine to work on, so have a go.

Here's the service manual for the Fisher & Paykel 503:

    Hi Peter, thanks for the Parts Manual I'm sure it will come in handy down the track, but for my current problem with the start button all it does is provide me with the part number for the display module which I already have. I'm hoping I don't need to replace the entire display module.

    Hi Jules, the parts most likely to fail include fuses, power mosfets, diodes and resistors rather than switches. There's a useful article on the Instructables site:http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-r... .

while under the lid there should be a tech sheet, explaining varions flashing light codes and there respective fixes for each instance, replacing tha switch(out of bal switch) seems like a good start though. cant remember if jumping it out will help, might be looking for a break in the line rather than continuity through it

SOURCE: fisher & paykel washing machine fault codes

I have a Fisher & Paykel GW609AU Smartdrive Excellence 6.5 Washing Machine that would start then stop then start then stop a few more times before eventually beeping.
I fixed it by bypassing(joined the white and yellow wire) the trip out switch which is located under the control module(one screw to remove).Now it Works.

Unplug the machine have someone tilt the machine back and look under the machine for a little fan on a motor give it a turn to see if it spins it might just be sticky or it may need replacing.

one of the buttons isn't responding properly. if it's not that then you have a board fault, which is a fault that cannot be repaired and requires replacement of the top board.

Fisher & Paykel Smart Drive beeps and stops during rinse cycle. If I hit pause and wait and restart it eventually continues. It seems like it has problems detecting water level.

Wont wash


Remove lid then control panel. Unhook all terminals, remove control board, then second "box" which is further away towards back of machine. Sensor is 'back/right," under this second box. Unhook connectors & remove wee sensor carefully. On the side of the sensor is a tiny plastic button the size of a pen top. This should move in & out freely. It is spring loaded. If it sticks replace it. Good luck on your mission.
