QuickSmart MW512 (5.5kg)

I bought my Washing Machine brand new in 2006 it has worked fine until now........when it is filling with water it stops and starts more than it use to and beeps and when it starts to wash it keeps stopping and beeping it beeps on the spin cycle and rinse so I have to turn it off and then turn it back on .......Do you think the computer has had it? Cheers Michelle

Is there a run capacitor on the MW512 and if so where is it located. It has been suggested to me that the Motor Control Module now performs the function of capacitor on the direct drive motors.

Hi there, sometimes it won’t spin dry if it is not balanced. If you haven’t already tried these 2 things, give them a go. Spread the load out a bit better and try start it again.
The other thing that sometimes works is to switch it off and to restart it.

Can't say I've encountered anything of this nature in any of the 3 machines I've owned. Don't like the sound of a 'burning' smell though and I would be erring on the side of caution and contacting F & P to get one of their affiliated serviceman out to have a look. Cheers Liz

Something is obviously stopping the spin cycle from working. Is there something caught in the machine somewhere, or perhaps the breaking mechanism on the spin cycle is not releasing properly or jammed in the 'stop' mode. Probably not a simple solution that you can fix on your own.

No braking mechanism, direct drive motor.
Possible fault with motor winding or main controller pcb.

A large amount of fragmented black material has collected inside the central column in the bowl. It appears to be some sort of flexible plastic material and staining of the washing is occurring. Is there some sort of gasket or similar in the machine that can disintegrate over time and cause this problem?

Hi I am not a technician you need to phone F&P

if it beeps 5 times in a rising tone, it has an error which can be diagnosed - you can probably find the manual at manualslib for self diagnosis

Hi as long as you have your hose screwed into the hot water and the tap is touned on , all you have to do is select the hot water from the options on the right hand side on the panel. So turn the power on then select hot from the panel .

This machine I was given second hand. It appears that this smartdrive has been discontinued. On the touchpad, the plastic cover on the power button is cracked and broken. A small piece of plastic that makes contact with the contact on the power board has broken off underneath. Activating the power switch manually on the board brings up error code 00011110. Is it worth getting this fixed? I'm not sure how old it is but could be 10 years old.
