Close your external inlet valve to the machine. Disconnect hose of washing machine from the valve; keep a bucket there and open the valve to see if water comes well. Next check the screens (filters) on the hose, clean well. This shd be done on both ends of the hose/s. Refit carefully. Check for leaks. If water still (don't forget to open the valve!) does not enter machine change the inlet valve of your wash machine. Can be done yourself. Rate me pl...........if helped.

Fisher and Paaykel Smart Drive 708 not working once filled with water.


You need to check your lid switch & out of balance switch for
corrosion and replace if faulty.
Your out of balance switch is under the big yellow motor controller
OOB switch Is where the grey plate is on this picture.

Fisher & paykel 501 smart drive washing machine


It does not seem like a problem of the unit. It might be a loose connection of supply code. Keep the supply code pressed to the unit in different directions and see if the unit takes power. If so, replace the supply code. It's not that expensive.

Hi i have a fisher and paykel smart drive 7.5kg washing machine. i pressed on put clothes in and pressed start nd after about a 1 minute a noise(like a clap) occured and the washing machine turned off and...


Hi just read your posting.Now the noise you heard was probably your motor controller shorting out or your pump shorted out. Did you check the power point with a small appliance to see if it has power?What is the model number of your machine?It is located on a sticker at the back of the machine .Please reply with additional information and I can help you further.

Fisher & paykel machine locked but lid is up


It sounds like the lid lock is either stuck or broken,You will need to lift the top hob by removing the two plastic lugs where the lid rests & removeing the screws it will then lift up and you will be able to remove the lock to inspect it,Also you can remove the lid in the up position by pulling vertically to make it a bit easier,Hope this helps Cheers.
