Frigidaire Stackable Washer/Dryer 2 Beeps?
What Does It Really Mean?
If the Frigidaire stackable washer dryer beeps twice it is an issue with your locking mechanism.
Incidentally, it might not be damaged as such nor will it be faulty.
The problem could simply be that the lid mechanism isn’t pressed down hard enough.
This is true for the washer at least.
This beeping will, however, only happen before a cycle, meaning the machine won’t start.
If, however, the two beeps occur after three or more clicks, referring to the manual might be helpful.
Shut the lid completely ensuring the lid lock is firmly in place.
You can also press down on the washer lid and observe if the noise persists.
If it continues, it is likely to be a problem with the latch or lid lock.
Consider having the lid replaced.
If the noise persists a consultant might offer further insight.
