Hi

How many times is it beeping? Are there any error codes/blinking lights as well on the control panel? What exactly do you mean by Bowl here, is it the tub or any other thing that you are referring to?

    OK. It was helpful. Try and set it to final spin and see if it works. If it spins, reset the timer to the first stage and begin the wash. If it won't, try unpugging the washer for a minute or two and plug it back up. This will reset the washer. Try to start the washer with normal wash settings and let me know what it does. Once you do this, please let me know what happened. Thanks.

    I believe you have a bad timing switch. Have you had any problems with filling the tub up with water and draining?

  • Richard Hale
    Richard Hale May 28, 2011

    The washer may be out of time or it may need a new timing switch. You need to make sure it is not the lid switch though. Make sure the washer begins and stops when you raise or close the lid to the washer. If so, you will hear it clicking and this means it should be working properly.

    I don't think it is. I believe your washer is out of time. This may be caused by the timer or the timing switch. You can make sure if you want. You should hear it working. Drain the water out and restart the wash from the first setting. If it fills up, the pump is fine. A bad water level switch can cause similar issues as yours, but I believe it is out of time. It is not the motor. We determined that a little while ago, same as the lid switch. You have power to the washer. It does spin. You need to see if it will drain though. We ruled out the motor and all components. I believe the beeping is associated with the washer not in the correct setting.
