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 keeps beeping then all lights and screen start flashing.


i would guess that you have a faulty main board, the quickest and surest way to determine the problem and that is to replace it with a second hand board out of an known old machine which has faulty seals.

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.

Bosch WFK2401 won't start error code 6


Open the panel at the bottom using a 2p coin by turning clockwise
Pull the rubber hose out of the holder and drain water into a container until stops
turn large plastic screw to the left for access to the pump
Clear away and debris bits of metal, plastic, etc that has stopped the pump.
Opposite of above to reassemble
Switch on and test... good luck!
