The ribbed drainage tube on mine was leaking from a small hole at the bottom of the curved "u" - due to flex fatigue tiny crack. My solution - a short (1 inch) section of copper water pipe for a splice, secured with black electical tape and a hose clamp. This fixed the leak, but when I stood it back up, it wouldn't run right. This was due to the out of balance microswitch mentioned above, which was corroded. I bypassed it, and it works like new.

Hi,

your going to have to study it. put the machine on its side and look for access panels or a whole plate to remove on the bottom or rear. take the panels off and study it while its running, maybe put the machine up on blocks, careful of moving parts of course.
hopefully it may just be an adjustment with a clamp. also the agititator seal inside the machine may have be bad, pop the cap off the agitator, remove the bolt and pull it straight up and out and study the seal area, might be leaking right down the middle too.

good luck

J

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.

Water leaking on my fisher paykel washer. does it


Hi, It is due to a split in the flexible hose from the bowl to the pump. When machine is working, the split opens and closes, but when not operating it can be closed up enough to prevent seeing it leaking. .
