Fisher & Pykel Smart Drive 9

I can fill my washing machine and do a wash cycle but once it has to spin and drian for the rinse it just makes a wherrring sound. I have tried advancing the program but the same thing happens. I have turned the machine on and off again at the machine and at the wall, but nothing has changed. It did 3 loads yesterday and this happened on the 4th load.

    Have the same problem, looking for a filter or something to empty it, maybe the pump?

    I turned the machine over and checked the water pump and sure enough I had something caught around it.

    Thank you for your help

My smart drive 9 got to the spin cycle and wouldn't spin, it trys to agitate but wont go. I have checked the pump, even taken the pump off and looked as far into the hose as possible. Both appear to be clear. Lights 3 5 7 & 8 appear/flashing. Please help!!

Spin the fan on water pump (you can acess with difficulty from bottom of washer) if it has a little sand in it, it may clear. It is possible to remove water pump if mechanically minded and see if something small eg staple or 5c coin is stuck in it if this dosn't work or you may find you need to replace water pump.

Smart drive 085


the buzzing noise is the pump trying to work, but it cannot due to a blockage. unplug the washer and you can lean the washer backwards and remove the pump to unblock. the fill error is probably unrelated, and is an inlet valve issue.

Hi I have a fisher and pykel fresh smart drive 9 and its filled up with water but wont drain,ive tried advancing the cycle but all I get is a humming noise.please help


The humming noise is due to the drain pump being jammed due to clogging of dirt. All you need is to remove the drain pump and do a full clean up. You can also try to tap on the drain pump while it is humming as it will release the dirt and wash off.

Now and then my Smart Drive Fisher and Pykel squeals when starting to spin.


You will need the seal & bearing kit & maybe a shaft,
It is a big job to do,
The whole machine will need to be disassembled to do that repair.

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.

Starts and stops


A failed inlet valve is not uncommon in F&P machines. The hot valve is different to the cold one, so don't exchange them. Not a big job for a tech to do in-laundry. Good luck....Nomess

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.
