I have a Fisher & Paykel washing machine. Model MW512NZ. It has stopped working properly. The water is stopping and starting when the machine is filling and although the machine will pump out it will not spin. Sometimes it stops while filling and starts beeping at me with two lights flashing orange

    Hi just read your 2nd posting.Sorry its taken a little while to get back to you, but my computer has been playing up.Now the Error code on your machine is 130 which is called Single Rotor Position Sensor Error.This means the rotor sensor , which is located on your motor is faulty or the wiring to it is faulty or your Control Module, which reads the information from it is faulty.Now to test the Rotor Sensor ,unfortunately you need a device called an RPS tester.This tests the circuit of the component to see if is functioning correctly.If you have an electrical test meter I can guide you throe the testing of the wires to the Rotor Sensor but unless you can get hold of an RPS tester I cant help you test the Rotor Sensor.You could change it to see how it goes, but as I said earlier the Control Module could be the fault and only eliminating the Rotor Sensor of being faulty do you change the Control Module.Please reply to let me know how you would like to proceed and I will help you as much as I can.Looking forward to your reply.

Check the out of balance switch (under the larger Grey board)
for corrosion on the terminals and replace if faulty.

My mw512nz started making a burning smell and wouldnt finish the cycle. i think it has stopped at the rinse. it definitly wont spin. i thought maybe its the water pump where the smell is coming from but...


That will be your waterpump, try popping the plastic cover off the coil on it and sniff the coil itself, you will most probably smell abit of the burnt smell you could smell earier. Also try measuring the ohms with a multimeter, should read somewhere around 33ohms give or take 5ohms depending on temperature.

Starts and stops


A failed inlet valve is not uncommon in F&P machines. The hot valve is different to the cold one, so don't exchange them. Not a big job for a tech to do in-laundry. Good luck....Nomess

F&P washing machine:GW709 doesn't cut out when filling


could b pressure switch tube is blocked or your control board with the pressure switch attached is faulty. empty water from machine, remove pressure switch hose from control board, blow thru tube to remove any blockages, refit tube. turn on cycle, select low water level, push start, after about 30sec"s push start again, that should stop it filling straight away. if the water stops push start again to continue filling. if it doesnt stop filling after restarting the cycle then it is your control module.if the water doesnt stop filling after the 30 sec stop it is the water valves. by the way what country do u live in because $120 seems to b alittle too expensive. please reply 4 more help.

Machine will not spin or drain water.


I have a problem with my MW512AU. Sometimes it drains after wash cycle, but sometimes it sticks when it goes to spin, doesn't get up to speed, water comes on for about 10 seconds and shuts off, and it tries to spin again. If I hit the wash progress switch it goes directly to final spin and works ok. I then have to run a 2nd wash cycle to rinse the clothes. I also noticed a buzzing sound when I turn on the power point, which lasts about 3 seconds before stopping. It will come back on every 3-4 minutes for 30 seconds. This is with the machine power switch off. It powers on normally.

Fisher & paykel fill up with water then


Yep it sounds like another electronics panel has failed.
We never had this much trouble in the old days with the old electric timer machines.

Fisher and Paykel washing machine fills and won't stop filling...


If the water stops when you shut if off at the wall you have a bad cold inlet valve, or the valve is getting a constant "open" command from the controller and thus the controller is faulty.
