Question about Fisher and Paykel Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have a Fisher and Paykel 7.5kg washing machine, not sure of the model, I am at work so I can't check. It keeps on flashing lights and beeping and wont work. It starts, then stops, then sort of shoots out a bit of water a couple of times then stops completely and flashes about 4 of the lights at the top and goes beep beep beep.... I have tried taking all the clothes out and moving it to make sure it is stable. This worked for the first few times but now I can't get it to balance at all. Do you think it's stuffed??

    I will let you know the model and which lights are flashing when I get home, but I have tried leaving it off over night and the problem still persists. It doesn't sound good :(

    Hi Taran!

    The machine is a Fisher and Paykel excellence 7.5 smartdrive 9. The buttons that flash are the spin button and the one next to it, the short wash button, then miss one, then the next one, so four buttons in total along the top.

    If it is a bad touch pad can that be fixed by me???

Unplug the Washer for Few Minutes, say 30 minutes and then Turn it ON.If Problem Persists,this is Not a Good News.

However, i need to have Complete Make and Model. Along with that, i need to have a List which 4 Lights are blinking.

Once you would be at Home, You could Verify the same and let me know so that we could Proceed. At this Moment, it would be hard to tell whether it is Bad Touch Pad or Control Board or any other Component.

Let me know, so that we could proceed.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    I am unable to Find the Service Manual for this Series. Could you please tell me the Total Number of Lights on this Model and .....

    Give Number's - Most Left One - 1 2 3 4 5 .......

    Tell me which lights are blinking, like 1 3 4 5 .....

    These are Indicative of the Faults. These Models are also prone to Fault in Motor. One thing, i could share is that, this is a Major Fault. Repairman is always advisable. Do you have the Tech Sheet? Usually there would be a Tech Sheet in the machine that would help you to Find the Exact Fault.

    Let me know, so that we could Proceed.

    Hope i helped you.

    Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
