Lights on no one home!

I have a Fisher and Paykel smart drive. It turns on - all the display lights up and can be changed, but when you close the lid and press start nothing happens. I have removed the lid to try and find a switch to see if thats the problem but I cant even find a switch. We have 4 kids so I just spent a fortune down the laundromat!! Your help would be really appreciate.

Some model smartdrives have a hidden switch activated by a magnet moulded in lid if it has gone to open circuit it thinks the lid is open.This open circuit when lid opens is a safety feature should someone open lid during lid cycle,some become stuck due to corroision and need to be changed

YOU HAVE THE RIGHT IDEA ... ALL WASHERS DO HAVE A SAFTEY SWITCH TO PREVENT PEOPLE GETTING HURT WHEN WASHER IS IN AGITATE OR SPIN CYCLE. IF YOU CANT SEE A SMALL HOLE INSIDE THE RIM OF THE TOP UNDER THE DOOR WHERE A PEG PUSHES DOWN TO CLOSE THE SWITCH ... THEN THEY ARE USUALLY BUILT INTO THE HINGE ASSEMBLY. THE START BUTTON ALSO ACTIVATES A RELAY THAT MAY BE BAD.

FISHER & Paykel 6.5 Smart Drive - No display lights

You need to get hold of a multi-meterand check the resistance of the pump, It should be 33ohms or close to it, the pump is part of the power circuit and the machine will appear dead if it has blown or is unplugged, If the machine was running without the earth wire to the pump connected and the pump had a fault/blockage there is a very good chance that it has blown the motor controller module. It requires the earth to provide a fault path to earth.

Fisher & Paykel smart drive - all the lights come on!

It has put itself into the display mode (used in shop displays) Try turning power off and unplug from the wall outlet for a couple of minutes. Plug back in and see if it has come back to normal. If not then either the display board or the main board will need to be replaced. Get a service tech out to check which one is faulty.

Washing machine has packed a sad

The problem is definitely in the lid switch. Your machine has a reed switch which is located under the hob on the right side of the tub. There is a magnet built into the lid which activates the reed switch when the lid is closed. You will need to replace the reed switch and harness.
