Re: faulty door which keeps beeping

I had a similar problem which was resolved by replacing the door interlock switch (cost about £10.00).

To get to it you need to disconnect the mains then remove the top lid. You can then see it by looking down the inside to the right. Remove the 2 screws inside the door opening and you can then lift it out after disconnecting the wiring plug.

Replacement is the reverse of the above, a 5 minute job.

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.
