Fisher and Paykel Pride MW059 Washing Machine won't drain

Hi,

As my freshly washed clothes had sandy grit all over them I went to put them back with the next load I had started washing. The machine was very full, and washed the items, but started continous beeping when it came to the rinse cycle, and the last 2 or 3 lights where on. I tried reprogramming it, and taking some clothes out, but to no avail. No more alarms, just a humming noise like it is trying to drain. I manually emptied it and dismantled it as much as could/game and the drain pump does not appear to be blocked as I can move it, and can blow air up the pipe. Please share with me any suggestions you may have to solve my problem. Thanks

It sounds like you have sand in the pump,you can remove the bowl to get access to it,or remove the pump from underneath which is easier.but you must remove all water first.the pump is a click in fit you just bend the white plastic clip but not to far then the pump will twist out.hope this helps.

Code 37 -


Hi,

To my knowledge, Error Code 37 on a Fisher & Paykel machine refers to "drain fault" which could either mean that the drain valve will not open or that the drain pump will not run. The easiest user intervention that could be performed is to check for any blockage/clog at the drain filter, drain pipe, drain pump impeller and drain valve.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Where is filter MW059


it has a Auto-lint Disposalsystem which means there is no filter to access ,,,,, if your having lint on your clothes, check to make sure the drain hose isn't kinked and no down in the drain pipe to far.

Fisher and Paykel Pride 5.5kg washing machine, everything works fine until you get to the spin cycle and then it just beeps and won't do anything more. What can I do to check or fix this?


My washing machine will not cut off on a high water level, but will on the medium. It will wash until it gets to the short wash and then it just beeps at me. I tried to advance it to the rinse cycle but the light just blinks and won't do anything more. It did drain the water out though. What's the problem and how do I fix it.
