It appears your timer has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to or 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.

Your pump could have blown the in the 4 amp in the board
Check your pump should be 34 Ohms
or higher, but not less then 28 Ohms if so replace pump and the fuse
The 4A fuse is near the AC plug on the board.

Hi - pls check the clear tube which controls the water level is fitted correctly - often there is a small nylon inside these, be sure its not inside the caught inside the controller as it may be blocking the passage way.

The problem is with the tube - kinked or not connected - check to see it maybe something simple.

Mw511 wont empty water to allow the spin cycle

Could be a belt problem, check the belt first.
Or could be your control switch problem check your belt first as it is the easiest way to go and the cheapest.

Check the pipes actually work first. Is there a hidden drain filter that is partially blocked? Dissasemble the pump and check it works and the blades inside are clean.
