An electrical wiring short may be the problem. It could also be a defective drain pump (motor windings shorted due to a overheat condition).

tilt the machine to get to the bottom and there is an electric pump that you can remove with no tools, you twist if out. after that is removed you should see what has clogged your pump.. I spent 4 hours disassembling my entire machine , cleaning it, trying to find out what was wrong. And the fix could of just taken me 1 minute.. Next time... But at least I know how to take everything apart now, very easy and simple machine to work on.

SOURCE: washer will not drain

90% chance that is the pump is pumping water at all, there is blockage between the tub and the drain pump. If there is no water coming out of the drain line. either extremely clogged(odd) or pump motor is bad, and windings are not allowing rotation.

Hi There,You could bail out as much water as possible,Then If you lean the machine back against the wall,(with machine unplugged) you could remove the bottom plate (if fitted) and you will see the pump with a fan attached,Try turning the fan back & forth it may loosen the obstruction and you could then pump the water out before removing the pump for a service,A the front of the pump you will see a small plastic locking clip that needs to be held out while you turn the pump anti-clockwise for removel.Note treat everthing to be live on this machine if plugged in.(unplug machine before attemting any procedure) Best Regards.

How do I see what is causing my Fisher & Paykel EcoSmart washer to leak water?

If it is leaking when draining this would point to the main seal of the WATER PUMP. (Quite common for older machines.)
The pump can be easily removed by leaning the machine backwards, remove wires and see picture. NOTE: about half a litre of water will gush out so it is best to take machine outdoors. Go to a recycling centre or online auction for a replacement. They can be fiddly to replace.

Fisher & paykel washing machine has no power

it was probably the pump shorting / overheating, and running it has caused it to blow the fuse in the motor controller.

My washing machine will not light up

Generally this problem happens when the drain pump starts to leak under the washing maching. A Fisher Paykel has a main control board under the touch panel that has direct wires running from it to the drain pump. When the drain pump leaks it shorts out the wire connecting it to the control board and blow out the main control. Look under washer and look for the drain pump (Drain pump looks like a fan from the underside.) You will most likely see residue from where the water has been leaking, built up on the pump. If all of the above is true on your machine, replace the pump and control board. Fisher Paykel includes an inline fuse to keep this from happening again.
