Hi folks,
Having probs with the above model. It fills OK, but won't advance stages and starts beeping, and has now started reverting to warm water selection instead of cold. Any ideas please.

    Starts off fine but won't progress past 1st green light. When it gets to this light the hot water and cold water light will both come on and start blinking.It will just sit there at that point making a little ringing type sound.

Sounds like a possible main control card issue. If this machine is under warranty please call your dealer as these boards can be expensive.

Hi. I need some info on the fisher and paykel mw511 pride. When I press start the machine beeps and shows the short wash and spin lights. Any ideas?


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 have a fisher paykel GWL10 washing machine. It shuts off while


At this stage i can suggest that the inlet valve may be faulty & giving off this burning smell.open the control box & see if one of the 2 inlet valves look distorted or brown or burnt looking.I'm wondering if it's not filling very fast also,this could also be an indication of the valve.

Will not advance from fill cycle


Check your drain hose to make sure you have not sealed the top of the standpipe (drain line), or shoved your drain hose too far down in the pipe. If you do not allow for an air gap, your washer will fill and begin to siphon through the drain line. It is common for folks to seal the standpipe or shove the drain hose down in the line too far in the belief that it will prevent overflows, or get rid of that nasty drain smell. This can be bad because it does not allow for the proper air gap to keep the water from being siphoned right out of the machine. You may have a tight fitting that doesn't siphon every time which may explain why the problem doesn't occur all the time. Double check to make sure. Hope this helps.
