Question about Fisher Washing Machines

1 Answer

FIsher and Paykel washing machine won't stop beeping.

My machine is now approx 4-5yrs old (Model MW511). It was working perfectly until i just moved house. Now as soon as it is supplied with power it starts beeping with two lights in between long wash and short wash flashing, as well as the last spin light.

I have unplugged it and let it sit overnight, but everytime i turn it on i have the same problem.

It appears to be an electrical fault, is there any way to try and reset the machine?

If you remove the back panel you can look under there, there should be atrouble shooter/techsheet that will let you know what the flashinglights mean. if not theres a tech support number to aid you as well

I have a Fisher and Paykel Smartdrive 9 washing machine that won't fill. It starts then stops and continues to do so, then stops altogether and beeps. Can anyone help??


The error code is displayed when its beeping.
I don't know the error code, so It can only be three things,
Out of balance switch,Lid magnetic reed switch,Or Rotor position sensor,Your error code would help me work out witch one of these are faulty. to work out your error code look at picture below.
Add up the lights that are on.

Washing Machine F&P MW511. Washed, then rinsed using the fabric softener, partially spun then stopped. Will not turn on at all now (no power)


Hmmmmm - I think you may actually have a faulty controller module - without a working module it generally means no power on etc for Smartdrive washers..

Machine stops and will not move to next cycle--spin


Sounds like it it not recognizing that the lid is closed, could be a bad lid switch.
