Question about Tricity Bendix AW1000W Front Load Washer

Problems after getting fluff in machine

I have a Tricity Bendix 'Advanced Eco Shower System' 1400 rpm washing machine.

I stupidly washed a large fluffy cloth in it, not realising that it would shed loads of fibres. Next time I used the machine, they got stuck all over the clothes, but washed them OK, until it came to the end of the cycle and a buzzer kept beeping, and I had to re-set it to spin. The water empties OK, but with fluffy bits still coming out in it (looks rather like the consistency of tissue, but is cotton lint).

I assume there is a blockage somewhere, but as the clothes come out spun (eventually), and the water is still coming out of the waste tube, I don't know where the blockage is.

I used the machine again today and although it works, it doesn't do the whole cycle - I wash (then the buzzer goes when it's finished) so I have to re-set it to rinse (buzzer goes again), then to spin.

There is a little door at the bottom of the machine (bottom right) but I don't know what I'm supposed to do, if that's what needs emptying. Any advice greatly appreciated. Many thanks.

Behind the little door is the filter which will be full of this stuff.
Just unscrew and take it out to clean.
Thankyou for using Fixya.

Washing machine motors are usually induction motors and do not have brushes? Anyway, the back comes off and that normally gives access to the screws that hold the top on, but the motor is normally located at the bottom of the machine.

My dishwasher is sticks in between washing cycles

These mechanical timer machines have to follow a series of logical steps to complete the program - ie, empty. fill to level 1. wash. heat to temp. etc etc
My guess is the machine is not heating, as you say it works for part of the program - or possibly it is not emptying correctly? check water heating element and drain pump.
Program 4 eco is a separate program from 3, using low temperature washing - the machine does stop between 3 and 4 normally and doesnt carry on through.

My tricity bendix washing machine flashing and beeping end light

Hi, we had something similar happen just before christmas. Our machine seemed to finish a cycle and started making beeping noise with end light flashing. Then when I switched it back on to do another load it just started beeping with end light flashing no matter what cycle was selected. Engineer has been out and advised that it is a fault with the motherboard so has ordered another one. Hope this is of some help. Machine was tricity bendix aw1400w.
