Question about Fisher and Paykel Fisher & Paykel Washer
My F&P smart-drive 9 died today. It won't reset (60 second power down) and just comes back to where ever it was in the failure and won't advance. Trying to start another wash cycle sees the washer add water in 1-2 second bursts and then time out after about 15 seconds. Manual makes no mention of this particular error.
I had this exact problem with a smartdrive 703, I was quoted over $150 just to come and see. I didnt have a replacement switch, but a bit of marsking tape (temporarily) till I get the part has worked perfectly. Thanks so much. I dont have a husband and now dont feel like I need one!!!

Hey, thanks for that, my washing machine is fixed. I took the micro-switch out as you said and flicked the small switch on the side of the unit a dozen or so times until it was working properly again. It was stiff to start with but it did free up. I am hoping it will stay ok and i wont need to buy a new one.Cheers from NZ.

Had the same problem with a 10yr old F&P excellence 7.5kg. Inspected the switch and all was ok - the bowl seemed out of alignment though and we found that re-levelling the machine fixed the problem.

possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors
due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program
controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN
pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from
the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the
water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the
voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no
voltage from the controller. This means
the controller is a suspect.
If there is no power it can be due to a failure of the power supply.
