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.

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".

yes the safty door latch switch is eather loose or going bad. somewhere on your door there is a small sensor or switch that tells the washer the door is closed and its ok to spin, these washers put out alot of force when spinning and thats why the sensor is there it would be dangerous without them. when the washer goes in spin cycle there is more vibration than any other cycle. and thats whats making the sensor or switch wiggle and its getting an intermedate signal. it probily needs replaced these can commonly go bad due to wear buy slamming the door on the washer.. i hope this helps

Washing Machine stopped through cycle and now will not turn on


Check the wiring harness, connections, contacts, etc. Look for some corrosion and loose connections. Also, check the water inlet for anything that may cause a reduction in water flow.

My Fisher & Paykel 708 smart drive washing machine won't starts and beeps.


That is Error code 9
9.
(00001001) Phase 1 to 5 - Size Error
Phase 4 to 5
The Display size switch setting does not match that stored in memory.
Action - Reselect the size of Smartdrive by using the SIZE SETTING MODE. Push and hold
the water temp up button, then press the power button to enter SIZE SETTING MODE. Three
LEDs are used to identify size. The cold water temperature LED identifies 5kg. The low water
level LED identifies 6kg. The hold spin speed LED identifies 7kg. If the product has not been
setup before all 3 LEDs will be on. To set the size for 5kg push the wash temp up button then
the power button. To set the size for 6kg push the water level up button then the power button.
To set the size for 7kg push the spin speed up button then the power button. This locks the size
into memory. To check the size is set, start a cycle.

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...
