Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Because you have not told us the make and model I am having to guess what might be wrong and it could be one of many things ;-0(

I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors or back feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET valve to open up and allow water to flow into. If this does not happen then the voltage at the inlet valve must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If the water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the dry spin with the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water from the clothes during the spin.

Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.

SOURCE: beeping sound, does not operate the spin, washes

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but without being told the make and model it is difficult.

I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter- so many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters.
Following are my complete and hopefully 'coverall' pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.
(If these actions have not cured the problem, it could be the control board OR the main motor. Motors will show weaknesses when commanded to spin.)

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

No spin with alarm means the unit is out of balance.
The troubleshooting manual reads:
"The safety switch acts. The
spinning cannot work (The
WASH, RINSE and SPIN
indicator flash and alarm goes
off every 10 seconds). If
trouble cannot be solved after
alarming, it will alarm again
every few minutes."

To solve this the load must be balanced:

Make sure to level the machine on a solid floor. Also you may have to redistribute the clothing in the tub for even weight distribution.

MODEL WASHER # FTF214OFS2 BLINKING AND BEEPING LIGHTS WONT STOP


Hello Jennifer Brookman - Unfortunately from what you are describing it sounds like the washer is either experiencing a communication error from the control board or wiring failure. Since you have already tried the basic troubleshooting by flipping the household circuit breaker off, do you notice if the door is securely latching? If it is not, then the issue can also lie with a faulty door latch assembly. I suggest contacting a professional for a proper diagnosis and to move forward accurately.

Pride 5.5 washing machine. Our washing machine stopped (during one of the wash cycles I think) and started to give a single beep every second and all the wash lights were illuminated.


Hi just read your posting.Can you advance the machine to a spin cycle?Or are all the controls frozen?Try advancing the machine to a spin cycle and push start then reply back and let me know what the machine does.Looking forward to your reply.Sounds like a lid switch fault.

Dear Mr/Ms, I think my ecosave washing machine has some mis-functions. Whenver what process has been done, symptoms are the same. The symptoms are the followings . . . . - blinking error LED light:...


The error came from an electronic control, the damage usually occurs in the data memory. under normal circumstances should have after finishing washing or spin process, washing machine will turn off automatically, indicated by the beep sound and flashing lights first. if you quite understand you just need to fix the electronic control block only, reset IC memory or the easiest way is to unplug all cables (socket) connected to electronic control, turn on the washing machine and then power off and reattach all the cables socket into place. particularly note the socket cable of  water level sensors and unbalance switches. electronic control block is usually coated with rubber glue. but I often fix it without having to replace the whole (one block / set electronic controls). good luck

Hi just read you posting.Now when the machine was beeping was the spin light the only light that was on while it was beeping?If this is the case then my manual tells me your Motor Controller is faulty and needs replacing.Please confirm which light was on when the machine was beeping because the motor controller module is not cheap.Looking forward to your reply.

Turn on ok. Press start and spin light blinking and beeping.


Several problems were found
1. the touch panel PCB board had tracks which were damaged by moisture and had it repaired for $50 (Aus); this affected the advance function on the washing machine.
2. Controller motor was replaced with a rebuilt one (since the touch panel kept on shutting down).
3. Make sure that the wire holding the harness reed switch is tight (this I think controls the level in the washing machine).

My Duet washer is stuck. It won't wash or do anything. The Light is blinking.


sounds as if you have a problem with the door lock/latch mechanism not recognizing the door being closed, so the machine will not start, perhaps give a few short beep upon trying tostart but only blinks?
