Customer Question

I have just bought a washsmart Pisher and Paykel and tried to instal it this evening. It is leaving from the front of the machine and not filling. i have checked the hoses and they look fine. I took out the filter and there was water behind it. There is evidence of water having sprayed into the detergent drawer but not much. What else can i do?
JA: What's the make and model of your washing machine? And can you guesstimate how old it is?
Customer: It is a brand new smartwash fisher and paykel.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: it is under warranty so if there is anything more than an installation issue, no.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Wonder if you might read by first post to provide me with some suggestions on what I might do.

I would suggest you call the place where it was bought and explain the problems, it is under warranty afterall

I find it surprising that they did not offer to deliver and set it up for you

There may be a shipping plug that needs to be removed... did you follow all the directions to the letter ?

Gosh, I have never had an appliance delivered and installed. I must be doing something wrong. I did follow all the instructions re removing the transport bolts. Have rung Fisher and Paykel so hoping they will get back to me next week.
Expert:  Martyn Lloyd replied 2 months ago.

Perhaps the Deliver/Install is an Australian thing, but it works for us... and makes the purchase and transport a no brainer unless you have a truck !

Best wishes
