Question about Fisher Washing Machines

3 Answers

I have a Fisher & Paykel Excellence 7.5 kg washing machine that has developed a continuous flow with hot water tap turned on. If you turn tap off at wall and only use cold no problems. It started 2 days ago as a few drops that were noticeable with lid open.

Hello,
Try these out ,it will surely help you..

1. Check the fittings where the hoses connect to the faucets and to the back of the washing machine. Also look for worn or leaky hoses. Tighten couplings or hose clamps if necessary, or replace hoses altogether (be sure to turn the water off before removing hoses, and drain them into a bucket after disconnecting them).

2.Determine whether the machine is oversudsing during wash loads, which can cause the machine to overflow. Reduce suds by pouring 1/2 cup of white vinegar in 1 quart water into the washer. Then switch to less detergent or a low-sudsing variety.

3.
The machine may have a faulty basket gasket or tub seal and bearing that must be replaced; in this case, call an appliance repairperson

pleae post back on how things turned or for further help..Thank you...

Hi cressida,

i think you have a leaky hot water inlet solenoid valve. these valves need power to open up and let the water in as desired but if water is leaking out in the washing machine even there is no power to the solenoid then it is defective.

a solution would be to replace the valve.


i hope i have fix ur problem

pls rate me..
tnx

Machine wont fill with hot water


problem in hot water tap
hot water solenoid not activating to let water in
to prove either switch the hoses on the taps and press cold water wash
that proves the tap
then press hot wash and that proves the solenoid

Water drains during wash cycle


A couple things to check, is it actually turning on the drain pump? Is the water valve leaking by?

Our Fisher and Paykel excellence 5.5 smart drive 9, washes fine but when it comes on rinse cycle it wont drain the water and makes a humming sound.


Check your pump with a multimeter for correct reading
230V AC Pump 50Hz 33Ohms +/- 8% @ 20oC
110V AC Pump 60Hz 7Ohms +/- 8% @ 20oC
Also check for blockages that may stop pump from turning.
Disconnect from power & Bail out all the water you can before removing pump.

I have a Fisher Paykel washer that was leaking water into tub; repair people changed cold water valve but it is still leaking; although not as much. Could it be the nozzle spray holding droplets of...


Hi just read your posting.1st try turning the hot water tap off and see if the water continues to come into the tub.If the water continues to come into the tub then turn the cold tap off.If the water stops coming into the tub after the hot water tap is turned off then you need a hot water valve.If the water stops after the cold tap is turned off then the cold water valve is still faulty.Please reply on how you got on and I will help you further.Looking forward to your reply.

Hey, my f&p smart drive 9 excellence washing machine does not start wash cycle after entering water level etc.... upon pressing the start button nothing is happening any thoughts?


Is the bowl turning slowly when you press start.if it does then you may have a faulty inlet valve,make sure taps are turned on.try advancing the machine to spin cycle,see if it will do any other things such as spin & drain.if it does then probably just not letting in water & inlet valve needs replacing..try filling machine by hand & see if it washes.

Fisher & Paykel Washine Machine is filling up hot and not cold?


As nice as these machines are, I've read bad things about Fisher & Paykel reliability. It sounds to me like you have a bad solenoid.

FYI, you should leave the water lines on (both hot and cold) all the time, no need to shut them off unless you're unhooking the machine to move it or work on it. The machine should control the temperature itself.
