Thanks for that. 5 beeps is a motor related fault.What you need to do is check the carbon brushes in the motor. As if these have worn they will cause The fault you have.But if the brushes are fine then it's either the motor itself or th control board at fault.But most of the time we find it's the carbon brushes which causes this fault.

I see the question is still open here. Do you still need help on this?

If so then just get back to me. If not then if you could remember to click the star ratings at the top of the page that would be great.
