Hi, our 4 yo Fisher and Paykel 6.5 smart drive is making a loud screeching sound when emptying, and does not seem to be going into spin mode (or maybe I am not waiting long enough). Have read a few posts, but am unsure how I should proceed. I assume the pump needs attention, could it be long hair caught in it? Anyone looking for suggestions for running a washing machine off a solar setup, this one had up till now done a sterling job. due to low power consumption. Thanks.

Good result. I bailed the water out and rinsed the load by hand. Decided to wait till Mr Lager came home rather than having a go, but I did read every post that had anything to do with F&P machines.

We took the machine outside, laid it down on it's front (water still left in it) and Mr lager spun the pump by hand. It was not smooth. He sprayed the pump with WD-40, pump spun much more smoothly. We hooked it back up to the power and the noise was gone.

Screeching came back after a few washes, so Mr Lager bought a replacement pump. Dead easy to install.

The bearings in the old pump were badly worn with lots of freeplay.
