Make sure first that the circuit breaker is not tripped and there's power at the power outlet. Flip the breaker off then on again and if the machine still doesn't turn on lift the console up into service position. The problem is likely in the motor controller module, display module, or the wire harness connecting the two. Check the motor controller module and the display module for burn marks particularly the former. Also check the condition of the wire harness connecting the two including the connectors.

The motor controller module is most the likely burned out. It has been found that water damage or short circuit on the drain pump motor leads to the burning out of the motor controller module. Make sure the drain pump is good and not leaking before replacing the motor controller module if found burned out.

    A leaky in the thermistor seal will also cause the motor controller module to burn out. Water may accumulate and pools up in the area where the motor controller module sits.

Smartdrive 601 leaking


If the tap is leaking replace the washer in hose end. It's a common garden hose washer. If you mean there is water in the tub your inlet water valve needs likely needs replaced.

Hi I have a Fisher and Paykel Smartdrive 601, and the cold water is dribbling out when I put it through a cycle, do you know what the cause is, and how can I fix it??


Your cold water valve is not seating when off,
Try swapping the hot valve for the cold to see if that will fix the problem. if it fixers the problem buy a new cold valve.

Washing Machine F&P MW511. Washed, then rinsed using the fabric softener, partially spun then stopped. Will not turn on at all now (no power)


Hmmmmm - I think you may actually have a faulty controller module - without a working module it generally means no power on etc for Smartdrive washers..

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.
