Beko Washing Machine Problems & Troubleshooting

Beko is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of consumer appliances with a reputation for reliability and quality. Their washing machines have fewer parts than other washing machines and are much more energy-efficient.

Unfortunately, they have a history of producing some problematic models.

The most common Beko washing machine problems are leaking, spinning issues, not draining, not starting, noisy operation, and slow performance. The prevalent reason for these problems is that the machine uses too much water or has poor drainage.

So, in this article, I will go over a list of the most common Beko washing machine problems and their solutions.

So, keep reading till the end to find out the real reason. However, if you are planning to buy a new washer, make sure to go through the list of the washing machine brands to avoid first.

Beko Washing Machine Problems

Here is a list of Beko washing machine problems and how to troubleshoot them.

1. Washer Not Draining:

Beko washers can be difficult to drain. Usually, this is not a problem because the lint trap will catch the majority of the lint. However, if there is a clog in the drain hose, it can prevent the water from draining completely.

To unclog the drain:

  • Remove the access panel on the top of the washer and locate the drain hose.
  • Unscrew the clamp at the end of the hose and move the hose up and down until all the lint and debris have been removed.
  • Reattach the clamp and tighten it down.
  • Then, replace the access panel.

If the issue is still unresolved, here is our complete repair guide on Beko Washing Machine Not Draining.

2. Beko Washer Leaking Water:

This is the most common problem with Beko washers. It happens because the rubber O-rings inside the tub (the part that holds the wash water) get soft after years of use and eventually lose their seal against the inner sides of the tub.

This causes water to leak out, which is what makes the drum and spinners get wet. Over time, this could cause rust, corrosion, or even make the washer completely inoperable.

The O-rings must be replaced to resolve this issue. You may do it yourself or hire a professional to do it for you.

3. Washing Machine Won’t Start:

There can be several reasons for this problem. First, make sure the washer is plugged into a good electrical outlet. Also, make sure the fuses in the electrical circuit where the washer is located are not blown.

If those things are OK and the washer still won’t start, check the following:

  • The control panel on the washer may be defective.
  • The motor may be dirty.
  • The switch on the wall that controls the power to the washer may be defective.
  • The contact points (the “switches”) on the control panel may be loose.
  • Make sure that the drain hose from the washer to the floor drain has no kinks in it.

4. Beko Washing Machine Stuck Cycle:

This problem occurs when the machine gets into a state where it won’t start a cycle until you use a key or other external force. There are several possible causes:

  • The agitator is not turning. Check the washer arms and make sure they are moving freely. If they aren’t, replace the agitator.
  • The washing machine has an electronic control board (ECB) failure which can cause this problem. If this is the case, get a service manual for your model number from Beko and follow the instructions in the Service Manual to replace the EC.
  • The door is not fully closed. This can prevent the motor from starting. Ensure that the door is completely shut and there are no gaps or openings where water can seep in.

5. Washer Runs Too Fast:

First, check to see that the washer is plugged in and that the fuses in the circuit where the washer is located are not blown.

If the fuses are OK, but the washer still runs too fast, check the following:

  • The control panel may be defective.
  • The motor may be dirty.
  • The water inlet and drain may not be working.
  • The switch that controls the power to the washer may be defective.
  • The washer may have been improperly installed

6. Beko Washer Noise:

Noise is a common problem with many washing machines. Some of the causes of noise include:

  • Bad bearings Faulty motor
  • Faulty belt Improperly aligned agitator
  • Overload Wrong motor position
  • Bad bearing Improperly adjusted agitator
  • Incorrect settings
  • Dirt in the agitator Damaged agitator

If your washer is making a loud noise, it might be an indication that your agitator needs to be replaced. With the help of a professional, you can quickly fix the noise issue.

7. The door won’t open:

This problem is often caused by corrosion. To fix it, you need to clean the washer with a brush and some solvent. Make sure the washer is unplugged. Let the machine soak for 24-hours and then give it a good scrubbing with a brush.

If this doesn’t work, you can try cleaning the door mechanism with alcohol or penetrating oil. However, if the door wouldn’t open even after cleaning, you’d have to replace the entire door mechanism. Nowadays, it’s much easier to replace just the corroded parts.

8. The machine is not filling with water:

Most probably you are using the wrong amount of water. Either too much or not enough.

The problem can be with the water level sensor, the drain pump, the water valve, the fill valve, or the washer’s control unit.

Check for any signs of leaks, such as bulging tanks, stains on the floor, leaking pipes, leaking hoses, or water dripping outside. Also, check the filter if it’s getting clogged.

The water level sensor or the drain pump may also be defective and need replacement. If the drain hose is broken, replace it as well.

    • Hello Kevin,

      Thermostat failure, issues filling up with water for the rinse cycle, and even pump issues that prevent your washer from emptying are some of the most frequent defects that may cause your washer to halt mid-cycle. The lid switch is one item you can examine yourself.

    • Hi Ann,

      I hope you are doing good!
      This can be caused by a few different issues. The most common one is a weak water supply. It may also be caused by an air gap between the washer and the tank, a dirty drain pipe, or a clogged drain line. If your washer is not draining properly, then the machine will get stuck in a spin cycle. It’s also possible that you have too much water pressure, or that your washer has a faulty drain pump. In such cases, consult with a repair expert to help you diagnose the issue.
