Question about Tricity Bendix AW1400W Front Load Washer

Machine stopped mid cycle - door light illuminated

My Tricity Bendix AW1400W appears to have stopped during the wash cycle with the "door" light illuminated - no other lights showing. I have removed the door lock/combined switch, dismantled and replaced it. The door light now doesn't stay on but after what seems like a normal display of lights the "end" light comes on followed by a series of beeps. Could this still be a door catch/switch problem?

Re: Machine stopped mid cycle - door light illuminated

This appears to me that you have had one problem and created another, based on what you say i guess the original fault was the pump or a blockage in the outlet system, now you have dismantled the door catch and made that a fault, if possible replace the door catch with one that is known to work, then retest to get back to original fault its a bit like "my telly doesn't wok it must be the on off switch" there's much more than the switch to anything, hope i have helped, if so rate me please

My bendix washing machine door does not open after wash cycle ha finished

  1. Is there still water in the machine when the wash cycle has finished? If so, the door doesn't open because there is still water in the machine. Try clearing the filter at the bottom of the machine, in the front. If this doesn't work, check that the drain hoses are cleared. If it still doesn't work, try replacing the drain pump.
  2. Is the "door" light still on? You may have a faulty door lock assembly, or your control board may be faulty.

Trying to organise changing brushes in Tricity Bendix AW 1400. I'm in Scotland, daughter and machine in England! Does top or back come off machine to allow access and is motor fairly accessible for...

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.

Washer stoped working wont fill up wont spin it bleeped a few times now wont go on a cycle

The door catch (interlock switch) is the usual suspect for that fault. If it can't detect the door is shut it does not fill.

Machine will fill and turn slowly but will not

Check motor capacitor first.Try moving the drum and see there is no extra friction. If your washer has got braking mechanism check the brakes also. ( I have no idea about this model regarding break)

Tricity bendix aw1400w will not spin

We had a similar problem, where it washed okay but didn't spin and just 'beeped' with end light flashing. When the drum was empty it was not moving round very freely.
Try unplugging the machine from the electricity. Then take top off machine off so you can see the casing outside the drum. There's a small rubber tube on top. If you disconnect that you can look through into the drum. Try turning the drum round slowly while looking through the hole. We found a sock wedged in which we managed to pull out through the hole (not easy and don't expect the sock to come out in one piece).
It worked - and we've had to repeat the procedure a couple of times now. Think I must be putting too much in the machine in 1 go, although there's always space at the top.

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.
