Question about Fisher and Paykel Washing Machines

Mw512 beeps and wont start

The washing machine stopped during load and now just beeps and the third and fourth green and the red light spin stays on. When you turn the power on it just beeps and doesn't stop beeping till you push the pause button and the lid lock button comes on but you can open the lid so thought it maybe the lock switch????

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.

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.

The problem can be determined through the Wash Progress LEDs. The specific lit LEDs combination indicates an specific error code that tells what generally the problem is. But the exact positions of the lit LEDs are necessary in determining the exact code. Refer to the illustration below and post back the code or the exact positions of the lit LEDs. You may Google for the error code once you determine it, like "Fisher and Paykel Fault Code 37".

SOURCE: lid lock stays on and constant beep on excellence washing machine

I am having the same issue and hope someone can post a solution. I have found a work around though. Mine does it when it is on a 'Regular' wash cycle, I found that if I put it on Permanent Press it works fine.

Light stays when door closed


sounds like you are in diagnostics mode.
Press Wash temp down and Power at the same time to get out of it from memory (although this is for the older models).
If this is the wrong button combo, call F&P and they will probably give you the correct combination for your model machine.

My f&p gw611 Fills up but then wont wash.the 2nd


Most possibly be Error code 56,
Is common in 11 series machines & early series 12.
Is your machine beeping & showing a weird pattern of lights on the wash cycle, It is displaying an error code,
To read this error code you start at the red spin light & work to the left only add up the lights that are on. Red spin light = 1 2nd rinse light =2 1st rinse light =4 last wash light=8 4th wash light=16 3rd wash light=32 2nd wash light=64 1st wash light=128

My ps3 won't load the discs...


Hi, if it wont load your icons and freezes before your xmb, put it into safemode and try restoring the filing system. to get it into safemode...
hold down the power button while the console is in standby. the light will go from red to green.it will beep once flash green beep again, and then beep a third time. after the third beep the light will turn red.

once the light is red, take your finger off the power button and place it back on the power button. the light will go from red to green, beep once flash and then beep twice quickly. after it does the double beep, take your finge roff. the light will stay green and you'll get a screen asking you to connect the controller.

after connecting the controller, try option 3, or whichever option is restore filing system. this can possibly correct media loading and will 95% of the time fix the console when it freezes before loading up your icons(the xmb)

Thanks and take

Washing machine wil not fill - tries several times then stops and all lights except 4 go out


That would be the balance switch, should be located rear right under the main board. over time the switch becomes jamed in the on position and the machine always thinks its off balance. $4 to $10 for a new one.

Samsung front loader JI045 wont stay in position moves all over room when spinning. Machine is level no rocking. have tried putting carpet under but still moves HELP


more than one cause
first - have the transit bolts been removed? you can check this by putting your hand inside the drum and check it has movement.

second - if loaded with a load which won't balance, there will be more vibration. always try to wash a full load

third - select the spin program with no load and watch to see if the drum speed picks up slowly - ie doesn't burst straight into spin

fourth - check appliance drains properly
