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.

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 My Washing Machine is Fisher and Paykel MW511 Serial No.BPA808865, It doesn't draining water. I tried to take the outlet hose out, but couldn't and I didn't find any filter. what should I do ?
Answer is from Dale M - not me Bashar ....Quote -'The MW511 doesn't have a pump filter. You can remove the pump itself very easily and check for blockages. If the inlet to the pump is blocked then you need to take the bowl out to clear the inlet. Also make sure there is no blockage in the outlet hose'.... Hope this helps.
my mw512 won't spin
it won't spin dry
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.
what's year model?
agitator only agitating very slightly................any ideas to resolve.................I am quite handy. This excellent m/c was purchased in 2009 and used two to three times per week.
This machine fills up & when it gets to it spin cycle it wont start & there is a burning smell
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.
Fisher and paykel mw511 pride top loader won't complete the rinse cycle and keeps repeating the cycle over and over again. Has last 3 lights on and have to manually forward to next cycle to complete the wash
