Fischer paykel c09

I have a fisher paykel smart drive c09. Does anyone know how to clean it, as there are black stuff coming out during the washing cycle and stick on my clothes. There's a top lid I can take out from the middle pole but I can't remove anything else to clean. Anyone know how to do it? Thanks!

The black stuff is called "Scrud".
It builds up over time from a combination of washing detergent and fabric softener.

Reach your hand down the middle of the agitator (middle pole) after removing the cap. There is a plastic wing nut that you can undo with your hand. The agitator can then be lifted out.

The other easy solution is dumping half a box of epsom salts in there (usually in the bath/ medical isle of the supermarket), run the machine empty, on HOT, Full load so that it fills all the way. Usually this cleans most of it out.

A more regular empty hot wash will prevent build up in the future.

Turn machine OFF on the front panel. Hold down the Water Temp Down button and press the POWER button. Release buttons. You are in Diagnostic mode.With your service sheet ,Diagnostic chart will explain where the error lights pattern and the path to your solution are.My advice is this....there is a known problem with the wire harness connectors,and the contact that is made at the point of connection.One at a time remove each connector starting at your main control board ,some where there is a loose connection.

Hi Dale..
It sounds like you have a leaky inlet valve assembly. The part number is 421029P and is easy to replace. You can get one here:

Thank you to the gentleman who sent us the Manual.  We now know that F & P has an automatic Lint Filter which is pretty useless !!  Oh, for the old method of a physical filter you can clean...

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.

Check that the valve behind the washer for the hot water is open, it will be labeled red and should indicate which way to turn to open it typically counterclockwise.

I have a Fischer Paykel Smart Drive 5.5 which is leaking water into the machine when it is switched off. Obviously when I turn off the feeding taps the water stops dripping but how can I stop the leaking...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(pre-typed to cover hot and/or cold!)

This is symptomatic of a malfunctioning (not closing completely) water control valve

With power off, if it is hot AND cold fill, turn one or the other off and see which one is causing the problem. Sorry but it needs replacing and a service call ;-0(
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

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.
