  • The first thing to check is to see if the motor is running if the motor is not running then you need to check the lid switch and see if it still lines up with the hole it goes into when you close the lid. This pin can get bent from slamming the lid as well as broken from old age and becoming brittle.If it is not there altogether it will need to be replaced and installed. You will need the make and model number of your machine and you can order parts through this web sitewww.appliancezone.com.they only charge5.95 for shipping and they ship same day.
  • The installation is sometimes easier than getting to the place to get at it to install it. If this is something that you do not want to do you can call a professional to come and do it . If you want to do it yourself you will need step by step instructions. please write back if this is not the problem or if it is and you want instructions on how to install it. Thanks for choosing fixya.

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.

Stops before rinse cycle... won't drain or spin.


The REGULAR CYCLE button turns the drain pump on or off. The REGULAR LED will turn
on when the pump is on. This feature can be used to drain the tub. You could get a bucket and lay the hose on the fllor. Gravity will drain it down.
