Flashing lights and beeps

I removed a few coins from the pump duct but the machine keeps on beeping and flashing its lights. Any ideas ?

    Thanks for your answer SearsTechToo.



    I think the pump is working fine because I have seen the machine drain water properly. Not for long though. In fact, no single stage of the entire program seems to be able to go on for longer than thirty seconds. After that it starts beeping and flashing again. The machine even beeps at me half a minute into a 30° C "delicate" washing program when no pumping or "high-speed rotating" (don't know the proper English word) is taking place.



    I'm having a repair guy take a look at it today.

    For future reference for anyone else who sees the flashing lights and the beeps, it was the carbon brushes that were worn out. The service guy replaced them and all is well.

Check your drain hose for a proper air gap to prevent siphoning and back pressure on the pump and did you check the pump impeller for damage or separation? Is this a Cabrio or ?

    Ok then the tech will probably find the user interface is malfunctioning:)

My Whirpool Duet front loader will begin a wash cycle, but stops when cycle switches to rinse with water in the drum. Door remains locked & light by the 'wash' flashes 9 times...


when the machine is stopped can you empty the residue water that remains by the programme selector? if not check for blockage in the pump(coin), the hose internal blockage ,or at the outlet under sink. I hope this help

Washing machine flashing FH and beeping


This should take 30 minutes: Remove the panel that is located below the front door, there are 3 small screws located at the bottom that hold this... you will see the water pump, which has a access screw plug. Unscrew this, its like a filter, you may see stuff, like coins, socks, etc, remove and clean out, then put
everything back... this should fix the issue.

XP 2070 Won't Stop Beeping


Okay, I had the same problem, started beeping and lights flashing one day, unplugged it and it was okay for a few days then this started happening more often until the machine just beeped and blinked all the time and would not make espresso. When I called Krups customer service I was told it sound like a circuit board problem and to send it in, yes its under warranty but I have to pay shipping both ways, so I decided to check it out myself. So here is the bottom line and what worked for me, I removed the espresso screen (above coffee grounds holder, 1 phillips screw) and ran 4 tank fulls of descaler thru the machine. the hard part was getting it to pump thru the machine. I found if I ran water thru the hot water/steam nozzle first I could get it to run 1 or 2 cycles, I also found that by removing the water tank and turning the system on for a few seconds and running pump dry (not recommended) I could get it to cycle without blinking for a few turns. Ran the 4 tanks of descaler thru, then ran 4-5 tanks of water thru into a bowl until it ran thru clean. The machine is 4 months old and I was shocked at the amount of crud that came out. It now runs fine and no more blinking, If indeed this is the fix for this you would think someone at Krups would have a clue, but I guess there a useless a the owners manual for the xp2070.
Thanks and I hope this helps.
