I have found that every 2nd wash or so i do now is completely covered in lint almost destroying my items as it is then basically impossible to ever really remove it all from items. I tried all troubleshooting suggestions ; running an empty wash on high in hot.
Did the same again including white vinegar to clean the interior. Removed the lid and cleaned all of the inside drum.
Unscrewed the agitator removed it scrubbed down & painstakingly removed all of the trapped lint throughout all the holes all the way down the interior of the agitator (which seems really disgusting to be happening at all.)
Returned the as new agitator & 2 washes later every item is coated in lint again.
Why is there no lint filter on this machine? Had I known this I would NEVER pay for this product.
Any solutions F&P??
seems there are lots of questions for this quicksmart machine but no quick and smart answers when the spin cycle will not intitiate. our machine purchased in january and has failed already because a DB sheet and 2 pillowcases were out of balance. redistributing the load did not work.
That did happen with sheets but no problem once redistributed. I had no problems with my first FP 5.5kg that's why I purchased a second one. My new 6kg is so far terrific.
would you believe Nise, my wife came in after two goes of my own and a i said to her, "no Luck, it still doesnt spin out but go ahead and do a load, ill just hang it out all wet." she put on a fairly big load, no bigger than ususal and we kept an eye on it for the whole time. the temperamental thing went right through to the end including the spin cycles for rinse and finish. work that one out. Cheers Malcolm

Hi I have a quicksmart MW513 and lint is left on my black clothes. Is there a lint filter I can clean? If so how do I do this. Thanks :)
There is no lint filter available to you. It is internal to the machine and suppose to automatically empty. In your case it appears to clogged. I suggest that you run a high-water-level hot wash and see if that will clean it. I run one of these at least once a month. Otherwise put a microfibre cloth in with the load to pick up all the lint.
I have just moved house. I tried to wash today using my very reliable F&P MW513. It washed and rinsed but cut out completely when it reached ‘spin’ and about 1min 30 it tries again but then stops. It just keeps going in this loop. Doesn’t seem to be able to spin. Any thoughts?
Washer stopped midcycle, no lights, beeps, completely dead. Power point OK. Is there a fuse or reset?
how do i change the waste pipe /outlet pipe on a mw513 washer the pipe has been cut and now it is to short to meet the drain it enters the machine 3/4 of the way up the back but the rear does not come off
I set the water level and temp (cold as usual), pressed start and the 3rd and 4th lights (between long and short wash) and the spin light are on and it just beeps constantly. What is wrong? Thank you
My mw513 stops after wash and do not pump out water to rinse and struggles, for 1 to 3 hrs and I had to switch it off and on again. How do I reset the operation?
Usually it means that your pump has overheated and cut out. Buy a new pump from ebay. They are very simple to fit. To confirm the problem simply lift the lid just after it cuts out and sniff. If you smell a nasty electrical smell then it's definitely the pump. Another way is to plug the machine into a cheap $20 eBay power meter. When it switches on, the pump should be drawing about 80 watts. If you see it drawing hundreds of watts then all that power is going into cooking the pump. The pump cuts out automatically when it gets too hot and won't operate again until it cools down. It's a safety feature to prevent a red hot pump setting your machine on fire.
My Top Loader MW513 no power at this moment. What is problem, anyone can help me please?
About 5-10 seconds into the spin cycle (before and after rinse) machine shuts down & lights blank out. About 30 sec later it comes back on with 2 sets of 2 quick beeps: low-high low-high, waits a little bit then tries the cycle again. If I do nothing, this repeats indefinitely (have left it going for 1hr+) and there are no fault codes showing in service mode. Disabling 'auto restart' does nothing, presumably because no actual fault code is throwing.. last fault was recorded hundreds of washes ago.
The ONLY error code I can find in diagnostics is for the user & it is OOB & this is not the issue.
It is taking between 1m15s and 1m30s to complete one of these reboot cycles & it's been running for over 1.5hrs so it's definitely gone past the 32 retry limit for self fault fix. What the actual heck is wrong with this thing? Going down the other questions about this model i can see a few people with approximately my issue & NO answers whatsoever.
I read somewhere it could be a faulty RPS sensor - ideas on how to test that?
Does the new?mw513 have any lint filter?
Really good question, I was confused by this myself. It does not have a lint filter like the previous washing machine I owned, it does manage to collect and extract the lint though, and does so better than my previous machine did. From the manual:
"Your washer has a self-cleaning lint system. The machine automatically separates the lint from the wash water, traps the lint between the inner and outer bowls and flushes it out at the end of the wash."
My MW513 splashes water during the wash cycle. The water is running down the inside of the cabinet and evaporating leaving soap powder around the inner channel at the bottom and also presenting on the pedestal (feet) at the floor. Any ideas what causes this ?
Hi, I was selecting the wash cycle (like I normally would) and the machine made a click sound and then it lost all power. I have tried turning it off and on again and checked the outlet (which is still working with other appliances), but to no avail. Where do I start?
our 315 washing machine has started 'clanking' while on wash mode? any suggestions ?
Hi, Our washing machine is emptying very slowly and smells musty - any ideas?
