This may be a problem with the drain pump.
Does it leave water in the achene when it beeps?
Start a new cycle, the first thing it should do is drain for about 1 minute.
Open the door and make sure there is no water in the machine.
Let me know what you find

Thanks

Close the door and let it start to fill.

Rob it has just started beeping again ? Al
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Opened door when alarm started
Looks cleaner but all inside still wet(not drying in steam as would be usual at end of full cycle)
The light is showing on rinse symbol and start button light is flashing
Hi AL

This sounds like it may be a bad board not advancing the cycle.

Can you tell me the make and model and how old it is please?

I think this may need a hands on diagnosis as its not possible to test the complex electronics of the board, at home. Let me have your postcode and Ill see what the price of an "all in" repair would be, as this includes ALL PARTS needed

Thanks

About 5 years old it is an Ikea Whirlpool
DWHB 10

Postcode is SW1V 4ES

It might be better to order a new machine from Ikea ? No idea the cost these days !
Al
Hi Al

Thanks

OK, there are several companies that do the fixed price repair.

For this type of problem this is the best way to get it repaired a it includes the call out, all labour, all parts and the VAT. So if its an expensive part, like the board, you win!

The cheapest quote I can get is £125. Please go here for the details

If this is built in, and still in good condition, I would suggest its still worth getting it fixed at this age.
To replace a built in appliance is going to cost you considerably more.

If I can help further, please just ask me.
In the meantime,

Hi Alasdair

Thanks for the rating, appreciate it.

I think you are right about the repair and replacing it next time.

As far as I know, Ikea only use \Whirlpool appliances and tend to go only for the high end specification models, so if you have been happy with them, I would suggest sticking with them. They are well built, reliable and spares are readily avail;able

All the best
