SOURCE: wont wash

Remove lid then control panel. Unhook all terminals, remove control board, then second "box" which is further away towards back of machine. Sensor is 'back/right," under this second box. Unhook connectors & remove wee sensor carefully. On the side of the sensor is a tiny plastic button the size of a pen top. This should move in & out freely. It is spring loaded. If it sticks replace it. Good luck on your mission.

SOURCE: No water flow on Fisher and Paykel smartdrive 708 washing machine

Take the lid off,just open it & pull it straight up.There should be a little red button that the lid strikes against unless its a different model,in that case it has a magnetic reed switch under the right hand side of the hob.press this red switch instead of closeing lid,see if it fill with no problem.the lid may not be making good contact with switch..if thats not it then it may be the inlet valve..then you can try the hot,if theres no problem with hot then its the cold valve.

Smart Drive machine on starting, water runs straight through into drain, thus not filling up


Most likely the water coming into the washer through the Water Inlet Valve could be siphoned out to the drain pump and out the drain hose because of an issue with the pump or plumbing. Is your washer overfilling?Is the washer detecting an overheat error? Observe carefully as to what part of the washing cycle the water is draining out. By watching the washer as it goes through its wash cycle, you can find out which part or error is causing the Washing Machine To Not Fill With Water and Keep Draining issue.

Machine wont fill with hot water


problem in hot water tap
hot water solenoid not activating to let water in
to prove either switch the hoses on the taps and press cold water wash
that proves the tap
then press hot wash and that proves the solenoid

Fisher and Paaykel Smart Drive 708 not working once filled with water.


You need to check your lid switch & out of balance switch for
corrosion and replace if faulty.
Your out of balance switch is under the big yellow motor controller
OOB switch Is where the grey plate is on this picture.

The smart drive 708 on any wash cycles has poor water flow..ie the water seems to be filling up very slowly and the normal wash cycle takes 2hrs


Hi Challe340, Sounds like your machines Inlet solinoid valve that supplys water to your machine may have a clogged internal diaphagm, its quite normal for it to clogg up due to high sediment build up in the water mains over the years and seeing that the machine is a smart drive 708 it probly hasnt had inlet replacement in it entire life. As for the normal wash cycle taking so long could be due to restriction in water flow from the faulty inlet valve slowing down the water fill segments in its rinsing cycle stage, hope this help.

The machine stops at wash cycle every minute or so


Firstly, the model 708 is way more than 9 years old. More like 18 - 19 years old. There is 2 types of errors on a smartdrive. One is signalled by a single beep every second & the top row of lights will change. The 2nd is a rippling musical sound (like when you turn the power on at the wall) and some lights will be blinking. You need to tell us what sound it is and which lights are blinking or which of the top row lights are on (exactly, count from the right to left and which number is on & which is off) There is no such thing as a reset to do. Once I know the fault I can advise you what to do about it.

Machine wont fill


If you hear a valve or relay opening and closing (a small click), then check both of your hoses for signs of internal collapse and while they are off, clean the screens you may find in both ends.

If you see nothing amiss, open both of your feed faucets to make sure it is not a problem with the water supply itself.
