Question about Fisher and Paykel Washing Machines

1 Answer

Fisher and Paykel Smartdrive 601 washing machine 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?

No. It's a water inlet valve problem.

SOURCE: No water flow on Fisher and Paykel smartdrive 708 washing machine

Take the lid off,just open it & pull it straight up.There should be a little red button that the lid strikes against unless its a different model,in that case it has a magnetic reed switch under the right hand side of the hob.press this red switch instead of closeing lid,see if it fill with no problem.the lid may not be making good contact with switch..if thats not it then it may be the inlet valve..then you can try the hot,if theres no problem with hot then its the cold valve.

SOURCE: my fisher and paykel ecosmart gwl15 won't do a hot

There are several possible causes. To track down the problem, first shut off the water supply valve feeding the washing machine, then remove the hot water hose from the machine and direct it into a bucket. Turn on the water supply valve. Does water come out? Is it hot? If you only get cold water, then you need to insulate the pipe between the water heater and the supply valve so you get hot water faster (assuming the water heater is working!)

If you have a supply of hot water, then check the inlet screen where the hose connects to the washing machine. Perhaps it is clogged with lime or sediment. If it is clear, then you have a fault in the hot water solenoid valve or water temperature selector switch.

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.
