Hi - does the control panel light up as normal? If it does, and everything else is working of sorts, then it is likely a motor is burnt out and you will need someone to come and investigate / replace it.

Hello I have a Fisher and paykel 7.5g smart drive excellence washing machine it doesn't spin and I can smell something burning.thanku Kelly


Has it drained the water out. It will not spin until completely empty. If it is not draining then Iwould say the burning smell is the drain pump overheating. Do not try to run it like that as the drain pump will short out the main control board eventually. Bail the water out by hand, tip the machine back against the wall and check the pump on the front right side of bowl. Replace the pump.

Most of the faults are pump related.
check the Ohms reading on pump should be 33- 35
If readings are less change your pump.

Thr brushes are not spinning and it smells


That is your belt burning, turn the vacuum upside down and make sure your brush is spinning freely. Something may be wedged in your brush.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It sounds to me like you have multiple problems with your power drive; a burning smell and the brushes don’t turn, and the dop is on March, 2008 – the Hoover Steam Vac Shampooer has a one year factory warranty and it could be a broken part for the brushes won’t turn or a belt would cause the burning smell. If it is not the belt or broken part it probably is the motor of which you should take it to a authorized Hoover vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or to contact the Hoover factory cust serv listed below or the Hoover website for information. If it is the motor the factory authorized dealer will replace the part for the motor and the broken part for the brushes, if it is the belt that would be an out of pocket expense. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Open dryer's cover and look that the belt is OK and in place (over the tub and the motor) Try to find out from where the burning smell comes from. Does the motor spin ? Let me know with your results and I will do my best to assist you with your problem.
