    Hi there When you put the machine on spin what does it do? does it make a clicking sound and a beeping sound with the lid lock light flashing? on most of the newish(within the last 5 years) fisher and paykel machines will still do the wash cycle and stop at the first rinse if the lid is open.

Select the spin cycle and press start/pause, put a small magnet along the right side, top, approx 2 inches from the front to trick the lid switch (move the magnet forward/aft until the machine starts working). Let it complete the cycle, then try to colse the lid completly.

It sounds like the lid lock is either stuck or broken,You will need to lift the top hob by removing the two plastic lugs where the lid rests & removeing the screws it will then lift up and you will be able to remove the lock to inspect it,Also you can remove the lid in the up position by pulling vertically to make it a bit easier,Hope this helps Cheers.

Is the lid lock tang on the lid ok & not broken.
You need to jam the lid lock lever in the lid lock down for it to do a wash.
This is where your lid lock is

Hello, my MW511 Fiisher and Paykel top loader washer is not working, the lid locked light keeps flashing before the spin cycle and it keeps beeping and never starts the spin cycle... what can be wrong? I...


Hi - you may have somehow put the machine into data mode - its either that or the door lock itself has malfunctioned - the only other logical one is thw controller module.

I'm assuming its a Phase 6 - try this - press/hold wash temp & power button until u get 2 beeps & lights up - release buttons...

NOW IMPORTANT - be careful you are in memory system of the controller -

1. press start/pause to unlock/lock & toggle that lid locked lights - check default is off.
2. I think its either advance or regular to turn pump on/off.
3. try a few buttons see what happens - THEN

turn off at the wall & try it again, if it still doesn't work then we may have a more sinister problem which will require correct testing of the components.

This will require a thorough knowledge of how to interpret the test results, to nail the culprit.

Sorry cannot help further...

My fisher & paykel washer wont start it beeps and says the lid isnt closed, but it is and there is a little ambulance that comes on the screen


I believe the lid switch is faulty, for the later modules the microswitch is mounted inside the door lock mechanism, others under the lid/top left side.

The ambulance is just saying to call for help....
