If it smells during the spin cycle the belt could be slipping and burning in the pulley. You may need to replace the belt.

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.


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.

Fisher and paykel washing machine, mw511.fault error of 3,4 and 8. How do I fix it?

If you are counting from left to right that is error 49 which means the control board is getting a bad reading from the cold water valve. That can be caused by a bad inlet valve or a bad connection on the wiring to the inlet valve or the control board itself is faulty. Unfortunately most times it is usually the control board needing to be replaced. Best get a technician out to test it.

Can some one tell me where the earth wires go and the rest of the plugs on a fisher and paykel washing machine mw511

If you are not sure of the wiring contact an electrician!

Connect each wire to the correct terminal. Slacken the screw and push the bare wire into the hole. Re-tighten the screw. Make sure the terminals are tight and that there is no bare wires or loose strands of wire showing. It is often easier to push the pins up slightly when connecting the wires.
