Hello. Here is a complete set of free downloadable manuals for your machine. http://safemanuals.com/user-guide-instructions-owner-manual/FISHER%20%2526%20PAYKEL/MW512-_E

The problem you are having is not a serious issue but was caused by moving the machine without securing the basket for the trip. This is all covered in the manuals. Joe

Fisher and Paykel MW 512 AU is not running. The first and the last lights(long wash and spin leds) on the displays stays ON in red and keeps on beeping. I appreciate any help in resolving this issue


This(130) is the only code that comes close to that,
There is no code for 129.
130. (10000010) Single Rotor Position Sensor Error
The Motor Control Module has found an error in the pattern received from the Rotor
Position Sensor. Likely causes of this fault are a bad connection on the harness between
the Rotor Position Sensor and the Motor Control Module, or a faulty Rotor Position Sensor.
Primary Source: Wiring.
Action: Check for corrosion on the RAST connector of the Rotor Position
Sensor and the Motor Control Module connector.
Secondary Source: Rotor Position Sensor.
Action: Check the Rotor Position Sensor with an R.P.S. tester. Replace if
faulty.
Tertiary Source: Motor Control Module.
Action: Replace Motor Control Module.
Quaternary Source: Rotor
Action: Ensure the correct rotor for this phase of machine has been fitted

Washer won't drain


DIAGNOSTIC MODE
To enter diagnostic mode follow the steps below.
1. Turn the power on at the power point but off at the machine.
2. Press and hold WASH TEMPERATURE SETTING DOWN and then press POWER until the
machine gives 2 short beeps and lights up.
3. Release the buttons after the beeps as the beeps indicate diagnostic mode has been entered.
4.1 Last Fault Data
When in diagnostic mode the last fault can be found by pressing the SPIN SPEED UP or DOWN
buttons until the HOLD and SLOW lights are illuminated. Binary can then be read from the wash
progress lights.
4.2 Drain Pump Test
MW Washer
When in diagnostic mode press SMART TOUCH CYCLES to activate the drain pump. To
deactivate the pump, press SMART TOUCH CYCLES again.
GW Washer
When in diagnostic mode press REGULAR to activate the drain pump. To deactivate the pump,
press REGULAR again.

4.3 Water Valve Test
The water valves can be activated in diagnostic mode by pushing WASH TEMPERATURE SETTING UP to activate the Hot Valve and WASH TEMPERATURE SETTING DOWN to activate
the Cold valve as with previous models.
Pressing each button once will activate the valve. To de-activate valve press the same button
again. This is also good to use when installing machines as it takes the shock out of the fittings
and seals and allows checking for leaks on the inlet hoses, both machine end and tap or super-tub
end.
Caution: Do not leave the machine unattended when either or both valves are operating

Hi just read your posting.Now you mentioned in your posting that the lights that are on when the machine is beeping are 1and 7.This is on the row of 8 lights and you started from left to right.Is this correct? If it is correct then the fault you have on your machine is called SINGLE ROTOR POSITION SENSOR ERROR.This means that the rotor sensor which is attached to your motor is faulty or your control module is faulty.Please reply with confirmation on the lights that are on when the machine is beeping and I am sure I can help you rectify this fault.Looking forward to your reply.
