Question about Fisher and Paykel Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have a Fisher & Paykel Smart Drive 601 washing machine. It will do a cold wash with no problem, however when i try to do a warm or hot wash, after about a minute of trying to draw water into the machine the 'HOT' led will blink red and a series of ascending beeps occurs. Any ideas? I've tried searching for an answer but so far have come up blank.

Check your fill lines going into the washer, my guess is the hot line is filled with junk. They have screens inside the end of the fill lines that get loaded with gunk, clean off the screen & your good to go

    Hey JRiley, Thanks for the tip. I pulled the hose off and checked that there was good water flow coming through it. Also pulled out the screen and cleaned the goop off. There wasn't a significant amount on it but its gone now. The problem is that I still get the error when trying to fill. I get a small amount of water in the bottom of the machine but it seems like the hot pump is either blocked or not drawing water through. Any ideas on how to check this?

How do I get the hot water work for my Fisher & Paykel Eco Smart washer?


How hot is the water temp in the house that you are in? If the inlet hose to the washer is not hot, then it is not the washing machine.

It could be a faulty lid switch in the blue display board.
The smaller one of the two has the lid switch in it.

Fisher & Paykel smartdrive 053 fills really slow


Your cold valve could be faulty & need replacing.
Try swapping hot & cold valves to see if it fills faster.

Hi I am buying a MW512 but only have a cold water supply, does this model have an internal heating system so I can do a warm or hot wash?


Hi - Fisher & Paykels does not come with heaters fitted, the two hot/cold inlets are used in prortion to the settings of the wash cycle in use.

So with a cold tap only you would expect cold wash functions only, if you accidently chose a warm wash the machine will start beeping as there is nothing to bring the temp level to the expected setting.

Hope this helps you choose..

Fisher & paykel smart drive 601, power to board, won't fill


If it isn/t doing anything at all it could be a faulty start switch on the display panel. Also make sure you can hear an audible click when you open and close the lid. The lid switch on a 601 is actuated on the right hand back of lid adjust as required. Hope this helps.

I have a Fisher & Paykel GW609AU Smartdrive Excellence 6.5 Washing Machine that would start then stop then start then stop a few more times before eventually beeping.
I fixed it by bypassing(joined the white and yellow wire) the trip out switch which is located under the control module(one screw to remove).Now it Works.
