Fisher & paykel mw511 pride

G,day, the machine works fine on the wash cycle ,but when it hits the rinse cycle it usally stops half way through and never reaches the spin cycle on its own. we turn the plug off on the wall and restart it and 50% of the time that will work, it appears to be pumping out the water ok, but it will still stop 5 or 6 times through the rinse to spin cycles. i was leaning towards the motor controler is stuffed. any ideas would be great , thanks in advance. rick plane

When it stops it should be beeping and showing an error code. When it beeps and before pressing any buttons look at the top row of 8 lights. Count from the right and tell us which number lights are on and which are off. If it is stopping and not beeping then I would suspect a faulty control board. Give us an error code to work with.

Check the pipes actually work first. Is there a hidden drain filter that is partially blocked? Dissasemble the pump and check it works and the blades inside are clean.

It appears your timer has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

If it smells during the spin cycle the belt could be slipping and burning in the pulley. You may need to replace the belt.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is normally behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Washing Machine F&P MW511. Washed, then rinsed using the fabric softener, partially spun then stopped. Will not turn on at all now (no power)

Hmmmmm - I think you may actually have a faulty controller module - without a working module it generally means no power on etc for Smartdrive washers..

Sounds like you could need a new out of balance switch or bracket, also try to make the clothes evenly spread in washing machine on rinse if they clump up on one side of the bowl they will cause out of balance :)

Fisher and Paykel Pride 5.5kg washing machine, everything works fine until you get to the spin cycle and then it just beeps and won't do anything more. What can I do to check or fix this?

My washing machine will not cut off on a high water level, but will on the medium. It will wash until it gets to the short wash and then it just beeps at me. I tried to advance it to the rinse cycle but the light just blinks and won't do anything more. It did drain the water out though. What's the problem and how do I fix it.
