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.
