Question about Washing Machines

Fisher & Paykel no spin, no rinse

Hey guys, I have a smart drive 9 washing machine model GW709NZ, top loader.

It's not draining or spinning. I have removed the bowl to get to filter beneath but nothing stuck there. I can blow through the hose and it bubbles. I noticed when I took the drum out it had water stuck inside (could this cause a balance issue?)

Power is going to the machine and it kind of tries to kick start the rotate at regular intervals say every 20 seconds but won't turn. Makes a kind of hum sound when it does this.

Help!

Just to expand on what aborcass stated...

Pull the cloths out and put them in a trash bag.
Bail the water out of the washer.
Pull the washer forward.
Tip back enough to see and reach underneath.
Remove any clothing that might have been caught in the fan/motor underneath.

the buzzing noise is the pump trying to work, but it cannot due to a blockage. unplug the washer and you can lean the washer backwards and remove the pump to unblock. the fill error is probably unrelated, and is an inlet valve issue.

Machine gets stuck between rinse ans spin and sits for a while then spins but wont stop, then **** from the in the machine or hose is on the clothes???? Any suggestions? Machine is a top loader smart drive...


You could try a hot load with epsom salts....this will clean out the machine....Make sure it is with hot water. It goes slow in between rinse and spin possibly because it is slow draining...clean out the pump. Also as it FILLS make sure the water runs in properly and not just trickle in making a hissing noise. Good luck. Tony the technician.

Fisher & Paykel washer GW712 won't spin


There is an issue with your drainage area. Best to remove the pump and check for the obstruction in the line or at the impellar.(If the water is not completely drained, the pressure switch wont send a low level to the timer to allow a spin).

Washing machine will not spin or drain


look at my post "eco smart won't drain, smells hot". It could be something stuck in very lowest part fo drainage area. you have to remove the motor on bottom of washer to see into this area and remove blockage.

Spin the fan on water pump (you can acess with difficulty from bottom of washer) if it has a little sand in it, it may clear. It is possible to remove water pump if mechanically minded and see if something small eg staple or 5c coin is stuck in it if this dosn't work or you may find you need to replace water pump.
