F&P Smart Drive, PRIDE 5.5
The above was given to us by a family member and had been sitting in storage for sometime. We were faced with the reality that the machine could have seized up or it was going to function as it should without any surprises. Sadly the latter has confirmed our suspicions.
While the machine cycle started as it should have, it was when it reached the RINSE mode that the length of silence numbed us. Not even an engagement sound - lights still blazing but no action or warning sign.
I would assume that if it were a pump problem the automated system would click over and the pump would signal its refusal to engage like some sort of gearing. But it was just quiet as. We advanced it to the second orange light in the cycle and the agitator started to wash again for about 1 minute and then silence. At this point we powered down and left the machine for about 20 minutes and tried again but no luck...could it be that the automated system needs resetting or could it be that the pump has simply died.
If there is someone who might be able to assist in anyway who may have experienced the same problem and would like to share their solution that might allow us to preserve this dinosaur, please help. In anticipation thank you so much - appreciated. Patrick (patric)
