Question about Indesit Washing Machines

3 Answers

Our indesit washing machine has started beeping lots during wash cycles. It doesn't seem to follow a pattern but beeps randomly, sometimes lots of beeps, sometimes just a few. What is causing this?

I wonder if this might be caused by the machine not being balanced properly as it does rumble a lot when spinning, but I can't figure this out as it doesn't wobble when I try to see which corner is unbalanced.

My indesit washing machine was beeping 3 times throughout it's washes. I checked the filter (which self cleans anyway) and it was fine. My first solution was to turn it off at the wall when not in use. This seemed to fix it until it eventually started beeping again. The final solution which I believe has fixed it was putting the machine on a self clean cycle by pressing 2 specific buttons together (note - only use a very tiny amount of wash liquid). I have done plenty washes since and it hasn't beeped! So I believe the 3 beeps is the washing machine telling you to put it on a self clean cycle. The instructions advise such a cycle to be done after a certain amount of use. I had only done it once when I first got the washing machine and had left it too long so it started beeping. I'll remember next time it beeps. My washing machine is a 9kg Indesit BWE91484XW

SOURCE: Roper washing machine- unbalanced spin - rocking agitator

I usually stand in front of the washer and take the plams of my hands and forcefully provide a force with the heel of my hands on the side front corners and the lip comes up

Another option is to pull the washer out and remove 2 clips (usually requires quarter inch nut driver to allow the top to come up

This should allow you to get the top off to see if a spring has broken or slipped off

SOURCE: spin cycle is off balance washing machine is

i dont believe it is the agitator per say. Assuming this problem has just started and doesnt have transportation bolts still attatched. Two conditions cause the imballance. 1)(if unit is a top loader) Check if all 4 shock absorber springs are well lubricated and not sticking. 2)A more involved problem which often happens, Underneath the washer, is the drive motor. on the motor, is a round pulley. this pulley needs to come off and strip further until you see a long spring. If it is not broken, clean it up using a solvent and a rag. reassemble and test. (if spring is defective, it will slip instead of grip on a spin cycle.

SOURCE: during spin cycle it becomes unbalanced and it beeps and stops

It sounds like the sensing arm of the out of balance switch assembly is wrongly set. Get the guy back to do the job properly at no charge!

First check your washer plug to see if the connections are tightly screwed. Next check your filter if you haven't for long.

Remove the 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel under the washer door. Your filter door will be light brown. If you find a hose there it is to drain out excess water (water that could not be drained by your pump) After you hv drained unscrew the cap and remove all the junk inside. Have a large plastic bag to catch junk and water. Refit carefully after cleaning out. If not solved, something shd be blocking your pump, check this out

I have an indesit washer dryer. It has started doing 3 beeps every 10 minutes or so throughout the cycle? It seems to be running fine. No flashing/warning lights just the beeping?

Hello there! Have you ever emptied the pump filter? it could be thinking it's getting blocked even tho it's draining Ok, when i do my monthly clean on my machines, i check the pump capsules every time, just in case?

Hi, my Indesit IWC91482 washing machine keeps beeping during the cycle. It washes properly and the program doesnt stop. But the signal annoys me. What should it be?

Lots of great replies, but I narrowed my "3 beeps" during wash to my daughter putting too much washing in the machine. It seems to have an 'overload' sensor that beeps when it detects too much weight. I initially thought it to be a blocked pump, but noticed it was beeping during washing cycle without the pump running. So worth trying a little less in the machine before you start taking things apart.

My washing machine has started beeping during the wash cycle - why?

Try running the same wash cycle with no clothes in the machine, just the water.
If it does not beep you are overloading it or the load is unbalanced.

What does beeping mean during dry cycle?

My dryer did the same thing, it was so distrubing noise in the middle of drying cycles, so I turned off the sound switch it went away, now it doesn’t peep any more.

make sure your door is closing good and tight

Washing mchine stops during cycle and starts beeping

See if you are overfilling you machine or the load is out of balance. Even try running the machine empty

unplug it then plug it back in to see if it helps

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.
