Question about Fisher and Paykel Washing Machines

1 Answer

Fisher and Paykel Smartdrive 601 stopped filling, beeped and then only a single green light remained in 'Wash Progress' area. Computer board problem?

Cold wash. Switched to Hot wash and still didn't work - so doesn't appear to be Cold solenoid. Played with safety switch after taking off lid - seems to not be the problem. Checked water level sensor - is not bent - seems to not be the problem either. I'm guessing it's the computer board. Any suggestions?

It sounds like a lid switch problem. Lift lid up & down slowly about 20 - 30mm, you should hear the switch click. If you can't hear it, remove the lid & push lid switch in by hand. It is small button at right hand side of lower edge of panel. Hold button in & press start. If machine starts to fill with lid off, then you have a problem with the lid not pressing button in far enough.
Please let me know after you check the switch if you require further assistance.

Hi,

Sounds like you probably have a bad diverter valve or diverter valve is clogged with debris or has failed. The diverter valve on a fisher paykel washer moves the water from the drain hose port to the motor.

To access the diverter valve tip the washer back and look in the back right corner. The valve is held into position with two small hose clamps. A wire connection snaps into position on the valves terminals.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.
Thank you for contacting fixya.com

I have a Fisher and Paykel Smartdrive 9 washing machine that won't fill. It starts then stops and continues to do so, then stops altogether and beeps. Can anyone help??


The error code is displayed when its beeping.
I don't know the error code, so It can only be three things,
Out of balance switch,Lid magnetic reed switch,Or Rotor position sensor,Your error code would help me work out witch one of these are faulty. to work out your error code look at picture below.
Add up the lights that are on.

Fisher Paykel Smartdrive MW058K stops during cycle and hot and cold water temp lights flash along with progress light


This means that the machine can't get any water or enough to wash with.Check to see taps are on hoses for kinks and filters in water hoses are not blocked.

Hi mate

I had the same problem replaced the board still no go. In my case it turned out to be the drain pump. Nothing wrong with it but a small bit of grit that although difficult to see was impeding the impeller
