Question about Fisher and Paykel Fisher & Paykel Washer

1 Answer

F & P Smartdrive Excellence works fine until it reaches the rinse and then just makes whirring noise. I can't get it to spin either and it won't empty. Is there a way of at least draining it. Cheers Kiri

Hi Kiri,

F&P mahcines are a little hard to drain as the drain hose comes out of the rear of the cabinet half way up.

You may have to use a small container and manually bucket it out.

The drain pump is more than likely blocked (seen this a lot on the F&P) and is accessable from the front panel or underneath the machine.

Repost if you need anymoe help!

Will not spin loud noise


Need a full model #. Describe the noise; is it a banging, scraping, whirring, etc? Does it make the sound when it should be agitating and/or spinning? Has it run fine until this incedent?
Thanks.

Hello, I have a F&P Smartdrive 5.5 Excellence washing machine. Am I able to reduce the amount of rinses it does? It appears to be performing 2 rinses and I would like to cut it down to one only as we...


Hi just read your posting.Now the 1st rinse cycle is always a spray rinse when the machine is set at the factory.If you follow these instructions then the 1st rinse will be a short spin only,with no water usage.1---Select the OPTION ADJUSTMENT MODE by pressing and holding the START/PAUSE button, then pressing the power button.Then release both after about 2 seconds. 2---Press either SPIN SPEED button to turn on the SLOW light,which is the spin only mode on the 1st rinse. 3---Once the SLOW button is lit push the POWER button to return the machine to normal mode again.Hope this helps and please reply back to let me know how you got on.We are on tank water too but thankfully we have a good bore.Looking forward to your reply and good luck.

Sounds like you have a broken motor coupler. They are inexpensive. Can be a little tough to replace but I can walk you through it. You can purchase a coupler here.
