Shut off valve in wall to examine filter screens on the hose, both sides; clean well. Open valve to see if pressure is good; before refitting hose. Next you should clean out the dispenser where your water enters, holes there could be blocked; could refer to manual re cleaning.

My fisher & pykel is showing error 40 does any one know how to fix this ,,,Thanks


Error 40 means it is a clutch problem. If you can take the inner bowl out and see inside for a forign object preventing engaging the clutch. If water over flowing check the pressure tube. It probably disonnected or damaged. Pressure transducer inside the control board also can be faulty. If you are mechanically competent this problem can be easily fixed.

49. (00110001) Cold Valve or Cold Valve & Hot Valve Faulty
The Motor Control Module has measured a voltage from the valve diagnostic circuit that
indicates the cold valve or both the cold and hot valve is faulty. The most likely cause is
that the valve harness has not been connected correctly or the valve(s) is open circuit.
Primary Source: Wiring.
Action: Check the valve harnesses are correctly fastened to the valves and
the motor control module or the pins are not bent backwards.
Secondary Source: Water Valves.
Action: Measure the resistance of the cold and hot valve coils.
Tertiary Source: Motor Control module.
Action: Replace the Motor Control module.

Hi I have a Fisher and Paykel Smartdrive 601, and the cold water is dribbling out when I put it through a cycle, do you know what the cause is, and how can I fix it??


Your cold water valve is not seating when off,
Try swapping the hot valve for the cold to see if that will fix the problem. if it fixers the problem buy a new cold valve.

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.

Fisher & Paykel Smartdrive 7kg is filling very slowly on cold?


Make sure that your incoming cold water valve is open fully. If it is, then you will have to clean the valve inside the machine for the cold water inlet.

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.
