One main thing I have found as a serviceman is that the lid switch fails.
Is this machine the Fisher and Paykel? If so, then on the right hand side of the hob (or where the lid closes onto) there is a reed switch (magnetic). You can short out this switch to get it running for now, but is highly recommended to be replaced as the machine can run in all cyles with the lid open and this can be dangerous.
Hope this helps you!?

My F&P Smart Drive 501 will not start with power button. I have to set it to delay start to get a load to wash... any suggestions? thank you


The start button tac switch has been wet and need replacing.
a crack in the decal let water in on the button.
Put clear packing tape over any cracked buttons on your decal.
Jaycar Electronics have these tac switchers,
Take the old one with you to get the same size.

My Fisher & Paykel 708 smart drive washing machine won't starts and beeps.


That is Error code 9
9.
(00001001) Phase 1 to 5 - Size Error
Phase 4 to 5
The Display size switch setting does not match that stored in memory.
Action - Reselect the size of Smartdrive by using the SIZE SETTING MODE. Push and hold
the water temp up button, then press the power button to enter SIZE SETTING MODE. Three
LEDs are used to identify size. The cold water temperature LED identifies 5kg. The low water
level LED identifies 6kg. The hold spin speed LED identifies 7kg. If the product has not been
setup before all 3 LEDs will be on. To set the size for 5kg push the wash temp up button then
the power button. To set the size for 6kg push the water level up button then the power button.
To set the size for 7kg push the spin speed up button then the power button. This locks the size
into memory. To check the size is set, start a cycle.

Fisher and paykel smart drive 703 top loader, lights go on but pressing them even to start does nothing not start or let me change the size of the load ;(


Hi, just read your posting.Now the possible fault could be your display board.When you turn the power on to the machine from the power point do all the lights come on and you hear an audio beep beep , then the lights go out ?If that happens, then do you push start and can not select anything else like water temp or load size?Or do a series of lights light up and it beeps indicating a fault code after you have pushed the power button? Please reply and I can guide you throe step by step the process needed to fix this problem.

Fisher and paykel smart drive top loader , Wont fill properly .


Well where to start .....
This brand has a hell of a lot of quirks.
The first thing to try is this : With the power on at the wall and the machine off ,push and hold down the start button , then push and hold down the power button you may hear up to 3 beeps at this time (hold down the buttons for 5 seconds then release) turn machine off and turn it back on and just push start button.
What this does is re programes the computer ,then just leave machine to run cycle
