Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

Fisher & Paykel Smartdrive 701 again! AUS/NZ 230V model. Replaced pump after fluff etc. blocked the outlet. Got it running, more of same fluff slowed then slowed draining/spinning, removed pump again, removed fluff ball, reinstalled pump, now 4A fuse in control box keeps blowing. No moisture at all in electronics or micro-switch pad. Could water have entered the motor when I removed the pump? If so, how do I remove the tub? Many thanks in advance. Roger.

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

Most likely a blocked pump

SOURCE: F&P Smartdrive 701 doesn't fill with water

There is a fill control switch. It will ususlly be up high in the machine with a small tube going to it. Pull the tube off it and blow the tube clear. Attach a piece of tube to the control and blow in that too, the switch should click. If you can, check around inside where the tube attaches to the washer to make sure there is no debris there.

Fault 37 - on my washer can you help me? It works sometimes . I think it will be a faulty switch or a blocked pump... Can I undo the pump myself? I am handy...


Well, I bit the bullet and I FIXED IT MYSELF!!!! I had to undo the main bracket .... which allowed the tiny water pump to be taken out. Surprising how small it is . Anyway there was a ball of fluff/lint ready to fall out !!! so I think I have fixed it . It was an anoying intermittent, but growing, problem - and these can be the worst to diagnose. This fluff was blocking the outlet! Have done a complete wash and will do more tomorrow. This machine has already done a mountain of work over the years; can now recommend. Cheers Gaz - the expert!
