MS511. 1 & 7 lights flahs, beeping. No agitate or spin

Have a fisher and paykel MW511. Is filling up in short bursts (instead of continuous flow) and won't agitate at all even though it sounds like it's trying too. Will drain no problem, but won't spin. Lights flash 1 and 7 and makes a beeping noise. Anyone know what it is?

SOURCE: No spinning action on my MW511 Fisher and Paykell

Hi just read your posting.Now with the error code you have shown it tells me you have an out of balance fault.To find out if the fault is with the out of balance switch or the motor controller you will need an electrical test meter. the reason for this is to test the switch for conductivity,not to test for power or anything dangerous.Have you or can you borrow an electrical test meter to test the switch?please reply and I can guide you throe the repair of this fault.

SOURCE: Fisher and Paykel Pride MW511 does not spin. Three

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is normally behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

SOURCE: Hi. I need some info on the fisher and paykel

Hi - I will need the product number found on the sticker in the rear of the machine - the controls has been changed so it needs to be programmed to a 5Kg machine.

I cant help you without that information as there are about 6 methods of doing this, the product number will tell me which is the correct way.

I had the same problem today. shephonos 18 had the correct diagnosis. Out of balance micro switch seized. Situated under the main circuit board. Cherry electric Corp 0.1amp 125 volt sptd type switch. jaycar has them for under $4.
I un-seized it with some electrical cleaning spray, fixed itshort term, no worries.
Thanks Stephanos 18.
