Documenting Problems That Were Difficult To Find The Answer To

Stop NEFF Washing Machine Beeping Incessantly!

For reasons not of my choosing I have been using an old NEFF W-4380 washing machine.

When it fails to finish a cycle (usually because it needs to be drained) it beeps quickly. When it finishes a cycle normally it gives 3 long beeps. That’s not the problem. The problem is that every minute after that it does those beeps again. Not good when you’re away from the machine.

I wanted to disable the beep.

NEFF have a website. Unfortunately they need a “ENR number” before they will provide a user manual from their website.

Apparently, however, the washing machines are similar to Bosch. Thus the instructions I’m posting are straight from this forum posting:

  • turn the machine on
  • hold down the pre-wash button (circled in the above picture)
    • after a few seconds you will here a beep tone, keeping holding
    • as time goes by the volume will decrease
    • let go (release) the pre-wash button when the volume reaches that you want
    • if you want no beeps then release when the tone disappears

All done. Of course, if you want the beeps back do the same thing but release the pre-wash button when the tone is loud.

    Came across this by chance trying to find out exactly what our machine was (it came with the house and didn’t have a manual- worked fine and still does five years later) but the incessant beeping has driven me mad. It goes on for 20min! So after seeing this I’ve immediately reduced the volume. THANK YOU
