MW512 Fisher & Paykel Washer Machine...Where is the lint filter located?


Fisher & Paykel machines don't have a lint filter.
Manual cleaning of agitator and s/steel bowl will make your washing cleaner.

Hi - this sounds more likely to be a faulty motor control module, its overheating and a electronic component is failing. Only way is to fit a new control module to eliminate the possibilty, another probable cause may well be the RPS sensor failing as it goes into spin mode.

Really need to do a few tests with a multi-meter, see if the motor/stator windings are ok, a faulty RPS at times will give a similar head ache..

Washing not getting clean


ok, try this before you consider removing the bowl. 1st-- buy 2 pkts of bicarb of soda. 2nd---make sure machine has no clothes in it. 3rd-- empty the 2 pkts of bicarb of soda into the bowl. 4th-- select traditional wash mode , high water level, hot water fill. 5th-- push start. 6th-- let it fill and wash for about 5 to 10 min, then turn the machine off. DO NOT LET THE WASH CYCLE GET TO THE DRAIN OUT STAGE. ok now the machine is full water and bicarb of soda and turned off, LEAVE IT TILL THE NEXT MORNING.-- In the morning select traditional wash mode, high water level, hot fill , then push the start button. let it go thru the complete cycle and all the lint and dirt should be removed from the bowl. by the way once it has started to wash lift the lid and see if the agitator is working. good luck and please reply to tell me how you got on.

It wont complete cycle and empty the water just hums for a while and then turns its self off


The cycle doesn't advance When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem: It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

Help! My fisher paykel washing machine won't stop filling up!


If the water continues to fill even if unplugged the water valve is sticking and needs replaced. if removing power turns the water off the water level pressure switch is bad or there is something plugging the sensor tube somewhere.

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.
