    All the lights stay alight at the time it stops and none of them flash which is why we cannot ascertain the problem. Thanks.

  • Edward Roy Iwanowski May 02, 2010

    Where it ha stopped now. Only light no. 8 SPIN is lit and it is not flashing.

  • Edward Roy Iwanowski May 02, 2010

    I have tried this before, but unplugged the machine again for much longer than 10 minutes. When turned back on and power button is pressed , all lights come on, none are flashing and when start is pressed nothing happens, when pressed again the most left light flashes, as it does when cycle is paused, and when pressed to continue the cycle doesn't proceed.

    Where can I get a copy a manual for a Fisher & Paykel Smart Drive 703?

  • Edward Roy Iwanowski May 02, 2010

    I have held the wash temp down button & pressed power. the panel lights up but the machine does not beep.

    I pressed the spin speed button up 3 times ( did beep at each press), hold & Slow lights illuminated but there were no LEDs on the wash progress panel to read the fault code??

  • Edward Roy Iwanowski May 02, 2010

    Thank you. I unplugged the machine for a while and it is now working! I completed the spin cycle where it was stuck and have almost completed another load without any problems. There is just the spin cycle to complete. The model that we have is a Fisher & Paykel Smart Drive 703. Our next question was going to be 'do you know where we could get a manual?', so if you could let us know where we could download one from we would be very greatful. Thank you so much fo you help today.

Please indicate what among the Wash Progess LEDs are lit or flashing as it indicates a fault code which will determinate what is the cause of the problem. The washer has a restart feature that allows it to correct the fault first before flashing the code. That is why it stops and then restarts.

    From left to right and numbered 1 to 8, indicated which among the LEDs are lit or flashing.

    The restart feature is most likely turned off as indicated by the lighting up of the 5 leftmost Wash Progress LEDs. Unplug the washer for at least 15 minutes to reset the control and turn on the restart feature.

    It is fault code 1 and indicates a motor controller module failure in you phase 3 washer. Check the connections between the display the module and the motor controller module. Make sure the connection is good and snug fit. Replace the motor controller module if the problem do not cease to exist.

    The lit Spin LED indicates fault code 1 on your washer which signifies a bad motor controller module. The last fault can be found by entering diagnostic mode then pressing the Spin Speed Up button three times. Enter diagnostic diagnostic mode by pressing and holding the Wash Temp Down button then the Power button until the machine gives 2 short beeps and lights up. Press the Spin Speed Up button three times then the Hold and Slow lights should be illuminated, and then read the fault code from the Wash Progress LEDs. Make sure to unplug the machine first then replug it before turning it on by pressing the Power button.

  • Jahn27

    With the Hold and Slow lights lit, it indicates the diagnostic mode has been entered successfully but the failure to display the fault code signifies a failure in either of the display module and the motor controller module. Please indicate the exact and complete model number of your machine.

    The lit Spin LED you posted previously indicates a failed display module for Phase 1 machines and a failed motor controller for Phase 2 and above machines.

    I have the two service manuals for these machines and I can upload it, but not here, for you to download. Just make sure to download and save it within the next 4 hours because I will be going to deactivate the link after that. And giving you the manuals would mean you are going to accept and rate the solution provided.

Hi - what would youlike to know - we are forbidden by contractual & copyright laws to provide what you seek..

Besides you are lucky if parts for the 703 is still in existence - only savvy techs could salvage those as you have to modify wiring & components for it to work. I have only done this once in the Pacific islands some years ago.

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.

A failed inlet valve is not uncommon in F&P machines. The hot valve is different to the cold one, so don't exchange them. Not a big job for a tech to do in-laundry. Good luck....Nomess
