Fisher & Paykel Pride 5.5 Smartdrive 8 not spining

Hi, My smart drive 8 Pride 5.5 (8 years old) top loader stopped spining after a brief grinding sort of noise. All other functions are fine, no beeps etc. In the spin cycle I can see it is tryingb to start rotating but not going. How can I fix this? Is this a problem with some sort of a clutch mechanism not holding ?

    Hi, There is no inspection door in the back, only access is from the bottom. However, since the motor is running ok for washing cycle (assuming it is one motor that does wash cycle as well as spin cycle) I am having doubts in my mind whether there is anything caught in the motor.

There is a transmission clutch that engages for the spin cycle. A gear has worn or broken a tooth. Replacement of the transmission hispeed spin cycle assembly is required.

The other comments are of no use. You must get parts from an Authorized Fisher & Paykel dealer, or have an authorized repairman service the machine.

Hi as a guess there is some stuff caught between the magnet of the motor and the windings. if u unplug the machine open the inspection door and remove the magnet part and clean it it might help

My maytag legacy series top load washer sav405deww makes a horrible grinding noise. It also doesn't drain and seems to spin slowly when it decides to even spin. I've replaced the belt and the pulley wheel...


That grinding noise your hearing is most likely the center bearing in a maytag they are usally very easy to break and mainly because when they make maytags they dont put the right type of grease on the bearing itself which causes the machines not to last the 10 years that we all think they could. This repair is honestly not worth the amount of money that it would cost to repair I've seen technicians price this job out between 450 as a low and 600 as a high and considering you can buy a brand new top loader for 2-400 it really isnt worth the effort in trying to resurect the machine. Please also note maytags are notorious for the center bearings disintergrating because of poor factory assembly. Sorry about the bad news. when looking for a new washer if your going with a top loader stick to the whirlpool there easy to fix cheap for parts and last alot longer. Please remember to rank this opinion and if i can answer any further questions please message me back. Thanks again (p.s. on whirlpool make sure if you buy a new one you ask if the drive couple has metal around the shaft dont get the plastic one they let go in two years and then techs charge 180 bucks to repair a 6 dollar part)

We have a Maytag gas dryer that is probably 15 to 20 years old. It still works fine, but it makes a noise when it fist starts up. Sort of like a grinding sound .

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it (4 to 6 inches maximum). Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

hi there these washing machines don't have any pelts or pulley's. Washer will need new seals and bearings witch is a big job, you wont be able to do it your self as you need special tools to put the bearings back in :)
