    I have the same issue. I know it's going to be something stupid but I can't tell until I get the error codes from a manual. Can anyone help?

Cold water not pulling into Fisher & Paykel 5.5kg Smart Drive Pride.

Either the cold water inlet solenoid has failed or there is a fault with the electronic control module, Unfortunately the only way to find out is to replace the cold water solenoid and see if it works, if it doesn't then the electronic control board is faulty.

My fisher & paykel machine, I'm not sure of the model but it is a smart drive is having problems filling with the water. It seems to be pulsing or surging at intervals and struggling to fill with water....

First thing to check is the screens not only on your inlet hoses but also on your mixing valve on the back of your machine. Just a few blockages the size of a few grains of sand can foul the system. Also under your machine check out your water pump and diverter valve for damage and proper operation.

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at

Fisher and paykel toploader washing machine fault 49 water valves all show 60 ohms next step?

Fault code 49 is water valves, But the Aqua-Smart board is outputting the wrong code here, The Smart pump has blown the water valves fuse on it's overload, A common thing in Aqua-Smart Machines i always keep seeing,
The Smart pump has jammed with lint and caused over current to the board and taken out parts on the board that drive the pump.
Best to get a new/recondition board for your machine.

Fisher & Paykel smartdrive 053 fills really slow

Your cold valve could be faulty & need replacing.
Try swapping hot & cold valves to see if it fills faster.

Fisher and Paykel smart drive 053 has power but does not function when press start button. One setting, normal wash is stuck on spin setting and won't change.

You have a control board problem that I would never advise replacing on this brand.The amount of headaches I see in my customers who own this can right a book.Sorry my friend.
