Question about Fisher and Paykel Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have an F&P top-loading machine, about 3 years old. There is no model number on the machine fascia. The problem occurs after startup. It starts to fill with water and then it beeps. There are two lights showing, both orange. One on the long wash cycle and one on the light between the rinse light and spin light. It beeps continuously until it is turned off. This has happened a few times but after leaving it off for a while and turning it back on, it worked again. Now, it does it every time. Hoping you can help Regards Grant Leishman

    The model number is MW512. The two lights that come on with the continuous beeping are the 1st and the 7th light. It begins to fill with water for about 5 - 10 seconds before this happens.

    Hi Grant just read your last posting.The ERROR CODE on your machine is called SINGLE ROTOR POSITION SENSOR ERROR.This means either the wiring to the rotor sensor, which is attached to your motor, is faulty or the rotor position is faulty or your motor controller is faulty.To test the rotor sensor unfortunately you need a RPS tester.If you have or can borrow an electrical test meter I can help you test the wiring but I am sorry I can not help you test the rotor sensor without an RPS tester.Please reply on how you would like to proceed and I will help you as much as I can.Looking forward to your reply.

See the following:

This is a known problem with this model. Call 800-847-9083 and give them the model and serial number to see if your unit is covered by a recall on the control board. I called a few weeks ago and they sent the part and a tech to install it for free on my 3 year old machine.

Hello weirc215

Thank you for posting your model many folks post non FAV6800A/FAV9800A issues in this forum.

It is a Clutch issue. The One-Way Roller Clutches in the hub of the clutch are not locking up in Spin cycle. Most times you can get away with a low cost Clutch Maintenance.

See my Clutch Maintenance Post for the details….. Clutch Fix Post It’s posted under my old forum nickname dh1200s.

If you or someone you know have very basic mechanical skills you can do this and save your machine and you $300+ over calling in a repair company that may not know what the issue is.

I will help you or whoever will try to do this. Can you give me the 1st two digits serial number located here?

Hi! GE top load washer model number wwse5240 is leaving grease stains inside the machine after laundering and of course on clothes. Not sure how old this machine is.

Your transmission is leaking oil. It's probably 10 to 15 years old for the transmission to be leaking. It can be replaced but it's not a small job. Part 320 in this diagram is your transmission.

This sounds like the brake is engaging to stop it from spinning. You can find the model number under the lid at the rear of the lit on the maching. I am assuming this is a top load model.

Whirlpool washer does not start after fill with water

It sounds like the washer tub is off balanced. When it is, it will usually not start. Underneath the washer, there are 3 or 4 bolts or nuts, depending on your washer model, that hold the washer to these balance springs. make sure that the bolts or nuts are tight or secure. If this doesn't help, get on a website called They usually will help with home repairs.
