If it is a musical rippling sound & hot & cold lights are flashing that usually indicates it is not getting water quickly enough. You can open the lid while it is filling & look. If water is just trickling in and taps are fully open then replace the inlet valve with a new one.

SOURCE: Problem with Fisher & Paykel MW511 toploader washing machine

Sounds like a possible main control card issue. If this machine is under warranty please call your dealer as these boards can be expensive.

Sounds like problem with inlet valve solenoids. There is one for the hot, and one for the cold. Fairly easy to replace if you are a confident DIYer- Disconnect from power, remove two screws holding top control panel on. You will see inlet valves on left hand side (the inlet hoses are attached to the valves, so you need to unscrew hoses). Two screws on rear of valves to remove grey plastic retainer, then valves pull up to remove. There is a rubber grommit on bottom of valves- retain this as some new valves do not come with this piece. New valves available from any good appliance repair shop. Call in the experts if you are in any doubt!!

the heating element has an issue
if you say after 10 mins it fails and stops
this indicates two things
the door lock is aok
and the machine fills

next comes heating up the water
some 10 mins into a warm wash

so perhaps the heating element has an issue
or the hardware cant detect it correctly
modern machine detect as they go
however usually but not always a bad element
causes your home electrics tip out...

but as the motor seems to run slow
it could be a sensor or the motor has bad brushes...

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.
