We had the same problem with our washing machine being full of water and beeping during the rinse cycle. The problem is that the filter, which is located under the washing machine, is plugged with something. Ours was plugged with a cotton swab. You have to tip the washing machine up and remove the filter and unplug it. The filter is in the center of the bottom of the machine. It twists off. I had to get the cotton swab out of inside the machine through this opening.
This machine plugs up a lot - I've never experience this with any other washing machine. Good Luck!

Check my issue "eco smart won't drain, smells hot" on how to remove the motor unit from bottom of machine. I had a sock down in the lowest part of the drain area that I couldn't see from above between the outer/inner tubs. Mine finally burned out the motor so I had to remove it. That motor unit unclips from machine--like a childproof cab, lift tab with finger and twist unit off. Quarter sized hole into tub is where i found the sock.

Another possible cause is the pump motor being fouled by something. Tip the washer back so you can look inside the bottom of the machine. The pump motor is the part that has a plastic propeller/fan blade on it. I found that a stray dryer sheet had wrapped around the propellor, preventing the pump motor from moving. Solved my problem!

I have a Intuitive IW812. When it is at the spray rinse cycle, no action is happening (no spraying of water). It then beeps with code 37. I stop the machine - turn on again and fast forward it to Rinse 2. It completes the full cycle and turns off but majority of time it hasn't spun it fully and sometimes there are suds amongst the clothing on the bottom. There is also some dirt/grit within the clothes.

My washing machine wont drain the water out before spin cycle it stops and turns off after wash so when you open the lid its still full of water


Hi just read your posting.Now you said in your posting it does not drain before the spin cycle, but does it drain before the rinse cycle?Does your machine stop and beep and show an error code in your LCD display or if you have the other model a series of lights?Have you tried advancing the cycle to spin and pushing the start button?Please reply with additional information and I can help you track down this fault.

My fisher & paykel gets stuck between wash and rinse, and will not drain water. It beeps and will not advance to the next cycle.


Hi just read your posting.Now my manual says the problem with your machine is the motor controller.Please try advancing it to spin and see if it drains.When you say it is the 1st and 4th lights are they the 1st wash light and 4th wash light?Please reply so I can make 100% sure it is the motor controller as they are expensive.

Machine will not spin or drain water.


I have a problem with my MW512AU. Sometimes it drains after wash cycle, but sometimes it sticks when it goes to spin, doesn't get up to speed, water comes on for about 10 seconds and shuts off, and it tries to spin again. If I hit the wash progress switch it goes directly to final spin and works ok. I then have to run a 2nd wash cycle to rinse the clothes. I also noticed a buzzing sound when I turn on the power point, which lasts about 3 seconds before stopping. It will come back on every 3-4 minutes for 30 seconds. This is with the machine power switch off. It powers on normally.

The rinse and spin cycles never end


I have seen this often on another brand. Once it starts malfunctioning on the rince/spin cycle, the boars needs replacement.
