Question about Fisher and Paykel Washing Machines

1 Answer

Fisher & Paykel smart drive topload has lost power. It stopped half way through a cycle. Took the clothes out and tested the power point but it won't turn back on. There was a slight leak at times from the hot water tap which may have occasionally leaked into the back of the machine but I've only used the hot water a handful of times and it has otherwise run well over the years. Any ideas?

The small leak may have been enough to blow the fuse under the control panel.
I had the same trouble with my F&P smartdrive 701.
Take off the control panel by undoing 2 screws and you will see the blue plastic control box in the tray on the machine (not the other blue circuit board box under the push buttons). Open the control box (1 screw and click open) to see an ordinary fuse. Hopefully this is blown and the new fuse, a clean up of leaking water, and some plumber's thread tape on the hose connector to stop future leaks, and you should be up and running.
Good luck.

Fisher & paykel smart drive 9 mw059au no power


Most of the faults are pump related.
check the Ohms reading on pump should be 33- 35
If readings are less change your pump.

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.

Without being smart...buy a new machine. It sounds as though the timer is dying...therefore slowing down...therefore extending cycle times. If that's the case, a new timer will cost about half the cost of a new machine.

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.

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
