Fisher and Paykel MW511 Washing machine
Posted 30 June 2005 - 12:13 AM
Hoping someone here can help me out...
Last night sometime my machine started beeping every second, the third and fourth lights in the wash progress indicators are on, as well as the spin cycle light. The machine will not function at all - it just keeps beeping at me. I have tried turning off at the wall for a few minutes with no joy.
It's kind of got me flummoxed as the machine was not in use at the time, it has just happened out of the blue.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I am about to leave for a week of gem fossicking, so will try it when I get back and let you know how it goes.

Got home a few days early.
OK I checked the ohms and got 60.8 for the cold and 61.5 for the hot.
I tried the other test and got no water from either - the test may be unreliable because as soon as there is power to the machine it starts beeping, and when I press buttons it just keeps beeping - so I turn off the power at the wall hold the temp down button switch on the power socket and then press the power button, this gives me the following light pattern (see image) after which I did the test and no water flowed from either inlet.
Edit: If you want any more pics with what lights are showing let me know.

OK have removed all electrical plugs I can access and re-attached, have removed hoses from machine and re-attached, have unplugged plug from wall for a few minutes - no joy with any of these.
Yes it was beeping from the start, once every second.
Have attached a pic of what lights come on when the machine is switched on at the wall.
Thanks for the help. Cheers

When you say the control board - do you mean the motor controller or something else?

I bought a new motor controller and installed it today, cost me $195 (gulp) - just doing a load of washing now, everything seems to be running fine.
Thanks very much for all your help, I really appreciate it.
