2. Machine Is Unbalanced

If your washing machine goes out of balance, it can cause the appliance to keep beeping. Here are the issues to look for if your Electrolux washing machine is going out of balance…

Uneven Legs

Your washing machine will go out of balance if the legs are uneven. Make sure your washing machine stands on a firm, even surface. To help ensure that your machine is balanced, use a spirit level tool.

If you notice that the legs aren’t properly balanced, carefully tip the washing and place a support underneath (get someone to help you hold the machine if needed).

Using channel lock pliers, adjust the legs as needed. Set your washing machine back onto its feet, then use the spirit level tool once more.
