SOURCE: washer will not spin

I'm having a little trouble understanding the question because of the spelling, but this sounds like a typical lid switch not making contact either by the depressor on the lit itself or the switch is broken. try depressing the switch with a screwdriver and see what happens. The lid switch will be in a little slot in the top inside where the lid closes.

SOURCE: Lid lock light beeping continuously and flashing

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question!!!!

Sounds like the lid switch is malfunctioning. The contacts in the switch may be dirty or rusted. Push down on your switch button and listen for the little click, if it still has a little click to it, spray a little WD40 on it while repeatidly pushing it down several times. Reply back to this post and let me know how you made out.

SOURCE: Our Fisher & Paykel MW512

The 3rd, 4th and the spin (8th) LEDs (from left to right) lit indicates fault code 49 which means the motor controller module detected a fault in the cold water proportional valve. Raise the console up and make sure the wire connection between the cold water proportional valve is intact. Reseat the connection several times to ensure a snug fit connection. Replace the valve if the connection is intact and snug fit.

LID WON'T LOCK & LID LOCK LIGHT WON'T COME ON


I would suspect that your lid lock switch is faulty, or maybe it has come unplugged from the motor controller module. You can access this by removing the whole top moulding but I cannot remember now how to do this now. But it wasn't difficult. Hunt around and download a copy of the service manual and the IPB.

Why does the lid lock light start flashing after the wash cycle and will not rinse or spin?


Lift lid, stick screwdriver into slot where lid latch-pin inserts and see if it goes into the cycle. If so, try adjusting position of latch.

Aquasmart lid


Is the lid lock tang on lid broken.
2.9 Lid Lock
The Phase 7 Washer uses the same lid lock that is used on
the Phase 6 series 11 & 12 machines. The difference being is that the lid is now locked for the entire cycle. When the lid is locked the Lid Locked LED will illuminate. Once the spin
has completed, the lock will release and the lid can be
opened. To open the lid during the cycle the
START/PAUSE button must be pressed, the machine will
come to a halt, and the lid locked LED will extinguish.
If the lid is left open, the machine will be unable to lock the lid
and the cycle will be halted. The machine will play a tune
and the lid lock will flash until the lid is closed and START/PAUSE is pressed.
• If the lid-lock fails in the closed position, the locked lid can be forced upwards and out of the
lock. Note: This is the only time in which we would recommend doing this.
• If the harness is damaged, the complete lid lock assembly will need to be replaced.
If the power supply is cut during the spin cycle, the machine will keep the lid locked until the rotor has ceased to turn (3 to 10 secs). Only then will it release the lock. The motor is acting like a generator and allows the lock to stay energized under the bowls inertia.

Mw512 beeps and wont start


The lid switch sounds logical. That would certainly halt the cycle. I'm not sure what actuates the lid switch on your particular model but check it as well. Good luck.

Washes but locks on spin cycle does not spin or dran


Does the lid lock when it gets to the drain cycle? If not then you need a new locking mechanism. The tab in the mechanism breaks off and it tries to lock the lid but cant. If it hums when it gets to the drain cycle, you have something caught in the pump or a bad pump
