Default Alarm type noise from WashingMachine?

Kenmore maybe 10 yrs.old . Steady beep. Only a quilt in washer at the time. Nothing in manual and nothing on line about this .Any ideas?. It is basically a stead beep that ended awhile after unplugged. Looking for co alarms and such in the area and below in the bathroom where it sounds just as loud but I am thinking that was because the ceiling in the bathroom is out from a repair. This machine BTW has no beeping or anything when the wash is done.

Thanks

Thanks for the PM! This is a top loader with no electronics. I am now thinking maybe it was the dryer next to it which does have an end of cycle beep. But it was not being used..

We have the older Kenmore 80 series. Wife loves them. She says the new dryers won't get as hot ? I don't know.
Anyway the dryer has a steady beep when the lint filter gets to full. Might help.

Thanks guys.It just HAS to be the dryer - even though it wasn't being used - this washer has no beeps or alarms - The machine is working normally now and not beeping so I guess we just wait and see,,,,,,


Thanks again

unplug the drier if it starts beeping again, that should tell if it is the drier

Chances are the quilts are so heavy and they're not equally spread out in the washer. When they get spinning fast, they're overloading the machine. Overload on one side.

LOL yeah it could have been the cat that would have been best. But in truth and i am embarrassed to sayit urns out it's a pressure relief valve down in the basement on the hot water tank. I don't know if it's the sound of the air and water hissing through the valve or if it's an actual alarm but it sure did Echo throughout the house. Only made the noise when the hot water was running and it just happens that the washing machine is directly on top of the hot water tank. Thankfully it was about a 10-minute repair. Thanks again to all
