Question about Fisher and Paykel Active Smart E522B Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

Open Question

I have a problem with my old Fisher & Paykel Smartdrive 600 GW600B-U washing machine.It just stopped operating after the final rinse and will not drain out the water. I have taken off the inspection plate and checked the pump and there doesn't seem to be any wetness around the main seal area where the pump connects the tub, however there is a slow drip off the pump fan at the bottom.Could this leak be because of a worn pump shaft? and is this repairable.thanks

Sounds like your pump is blocked. **UNPLUG the machine**. lift or drag the machine to a spot where you can let the water dump out. The water comes out fast and makes a big mess. Tilt the machine back. On the front-right underside of the machine you will see the pump with the fan hanging down. Unplug the white plug and the earth cable from the back of the pump. You might notice that there is a white plastic clip that you can move to the side. Hold the clip out and twist the pump clockwise. At this point the pump will drop out and water will go everywhere. Try and take the pump out kinda fast so that the coil does not get too wet while the water is dropping out. you might find a blockage (coil, hair clip, underwire etc) sticking out from where the pump impeller sits. Pull out your blockage and check that the pump spins freely when you spin it by hand. If it does not spin freely you need a new pump.

Now, after you unblock your pump, you can put it back together the same way you took it off. Make sure the white plug is not wet before plugging it into the pump and make sure the pump coil is dry too! use a blowdryer to dry for a minute if unsure. When twisting the pump back in, the wires should be at the back of the machine and the earth cable is kinda close to the rotor (motor). Make sure the pump is sitting flat so the seal works too. That clip should click lock back into place to hold the pump from turning. The washer will not spin until all the water is out in case you are wondering. Hope this helps!

Hi Dale..
It sounds like you have a leaky inlet valve assembly. The part number is 421029P and is easy to replace. You can get one here:

SOURCE: Stops before rinse cycle... won't drain or spin.

The REGULAR CYCLE button turns the drain pump on or off. The REGULAR LED will turn
on when the pump is on. This feature can be used to drain the tub. You could get a bucket and lay the hose on the fllor. Gravity will drain it down.

Washing Machine F&P MW511. Washed, then rinsed using the fabric softener, partially spun then stopped. Will not turn on at all now (no power)


Hmmmmm - I think you may actually have a faulty controller module - without a working module it generally means no power on etc for Smartdrive washers..

Fisher Paykel washing machine Smartdrive 703 Advance, Power and Start buttons are non responsive when pushed. Is there a part that can fix this. Does the control panel have to be replaced?


Fisher & Paykel Smart Drive beeps and stops during rinse cycle. If I hit pause and wait and restart it eventually continues. It seems like it has problems detecting water level.

Most waashers rinse with cold water and if your cold water screen on the valve is plugged and it can't let water in it may cause your problem.
