Question about Washing Machines

Washing Maching - fisher and paykel smart drive pride 5.5 It is not working properly and the warning lights it lights up are the first green one (at long wash) and the second orange one and the final red one... if i try to skip the cycles straight to spin I sometimes get a different set of warning lights coming up. Thanks Hermione

  • Hi



    I tipped the washing machine over and could not find the filter you were talking about in the centre of the machine... what I undid was a big plastic thing that seemed to have lots of magnets inside of it... I put it back together and got it to spin... then tried to get it to complete a full cycle again but it seem to stop and show errors at the first rince cycles. any thoughts now?

Hi,

The problem is that the filter, which is located under the washing machine, is plugged with something. Ours was plugged with a cotton swab. You have to tip the washing machine up and remove the filter and unplug it. The filter is in the center of the bottom of the machine. It twists off. I had to get the cotton swab out of inside the machine through this opening.

could be clogged drain. look at my issue "eco smart won't drain, smells hot" on how to remove motor from bottom of washer and check lower drainage area. bail water out first and be ready to catch water when you remove that motor unit.

Thanks for contacting Fixya

    Hi,



    Is it giving you any kind of error code. For example: error 37.

    Error code 37 appears to be caused by a blocked pump.



    Thanks

Cold water not pulling into Fisher & Paykel 5.5kg Smart Drive Pride.


Either the cold water inlet solenoid has failed or there is a fault with the electronic control module, Unfortunately the only way to find out is to replace the cold water solenoid and see if it works, if it doesn't then the electronic control board is faulty.

I have a Fisher & Paykel Washing Machine ( Smart drive Pride). When I turn on, there are two green light off, then one green light on, then another green light off, then another green light on, then...


So if you were to count from left to right then lights 3,5,7,and 8 would be on correct? If these are the correct lights lit your machine is giving you an error code the motor controller module has found that the signal returning from the out of balance switch indicates that the switch is permanently on or the harness to it is disconnected.
check that the out of balance switch is free to move
check that no harness is blocking the switches movement
check that the switch activates properly when activated replace if it does not
if the switch shows signs of corrosion replace the switch and the harness and fit a condensation kit
check the level of the machine and also the bias switch
check the harness is connected correctly
and finally if all seems good with the switch it states to replace the motor control module if you have any further questions message me back and please remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations in the future Thanks Rick
