Fisher & Paykel Pride 5.5 Smartdrive 8 not spining

Hi, My smart drive 8 Pride 5.5 (8 years old) top loader stopped spining after a brief grinding sort of noise. All other functions are fine, no beeps etc. In the spin cycle I can see it is tryingb to start rotating but not going. How can I fix this? Is this a problem with some sort of a clutch mechanism not holding ?

    Hi, There is no inspection door in the back, only access is from the bottom. However, since the motor is running ok for washing cycle (assuming it is one motor that does wash cycle as well as spin cycle) I am having doubts in my mind whether there is anything caught in the motor.

There is a transmission clutch that engages for the spin cycle. A gear has worn or broken a tooth. Replacement of the transmission hispeed spin cycle assembly is required.

The other comments are of no use. You must get parts from an Authorized Fisher & Paykel dealer, or have an authorized repairman service the machine.

Darren, reset the homes breaker/fuse replace, check to see if there is power to the outlet. There are fuses in the washer, check the links as they talk about your exact problem and recommended repair.

How do I adjust the clutch on an ELBA Model WA50T54W1 top loader washing machine ?


Hi.

Unfortunately the service documentation for Elba is not available. Although the machine has been built by F&P and although is similar to a Fisher & Paykel Smartdrive there are some small difference. The clutch system may be similar to the smartdrive. I have uploaded the service manuals for two smart drive models below, see if that can help. Check section about disassembly.

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.

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it (4 to 6 inches maximum). Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped. Click on 'thanks for trying' if not helped, your prob will be back for someone else to solve.
