  1. Hi, probably too late now but our washing machine, same make and model did the exact same thing. I am a qualified electrician and spent some time working out the wiring as Beko won't give the diagrams to you. I found that the circuit board on the left hand side (when viewed from the rear) is the motor speed controller (inverter), this was ok as the fault was not related. The front PCB had no lights on, but if you looked carefully I occasionally noticed that the Blue selector switch Led's were lit but very dull. The circuit board at the rear RH side is the main power supply and distribution/con

  2. Well, finally managed to get the dryer part working again - though possibly helped by the fact I still have a couple of years of a 10-year warranty to go. (I've posted the history leading up to getting this repair elsewhere in this forum - First of all, I have to say that the Miele warranty repair admin seemed OK - in other words when I phoned them I got through pretty quickly, they found my warranty details and then made an appointment about 10 days away, then did text me the day before as a reminder. So, that part works. The phone was answered by a nice enough young kid - but

  3. My washer door is the same with a broken door hinge lug. I drilled the tops off the heat moulded lug tops (careful not to drill into the inside cover. The cover came away with ease. I did not have time to source a new hinge so I drilled a 5.2mm hole thro the hinge (where the lug had broken) tapped it M6 and fitted a pan head bolt with the thread portion protruding outwards 9.5mm (locktighted the thread) . popped on the plastic cap after wrapping a little PTFE tape over the thread. To refit the hinge I needed to cut away thin portion of plastic webbing to clear the bolt head. Refitted

  4. Have a Beko wdx8543130w washer/dryer, completely dead. Beko wanted either £130 minimum for a call out, or £174 for a years extended warranty. Followed the instructions as given in this thread, fitted a new diode, now works perfectly. Thank you very much to Bob and everyone else who has contributed to this forum. This is clearly a manufacturing fault that Beko are profiting hugely from, every time they replace a board, they are replacing it with the same type of faulty board that will break again! disgusting. Thanks again to everyone here, saving people thousands.

  5. Hello Andy, Listen, I wanted to follow up with you regarding my problem as it is now fixed and maybe my information can help someone else. The wife wanted to buy a new machine but we can't afford the best part of 1000EU so after seeing how good a condition that machine was still in and not wanting to replace it I called Bosch. 99EU for them to look at it, if they repair it then the fee is waved. Anyway, it was to do with the incoming water. While the pressure was OK the flow rate was greatly restricted. As I didn't have the experience to know what was enough and what was not en

  6. Sorry for resurrecting an old thread but my own Serie 6 washer dryer stopped drying a couple of weeks ago and google brought me here. So, turns out the impeller was SERIOUSLY blocked and needed some TLC - the machine being only 2 years old. Rather than waste my time, I decided on some “user in-service modification” by removing an offending bit of metal from the back panel to enable the drier motor assembly to be removed fully (see attached pics). I achieved this with a trusty Dremel and cutting disk along the black pen line in the pic. Takes about 30mins to do, carefully. Make

  7. Just replaced my D7 diode and it’s back up and running. Thank goodness for Bob putting in the time to diagnose the fault and also take the time to share his knowledge with us all on here. Legend.

  8. That looks pretty severe. At that age it shouldn’t have anything dirty inside it. Washer dryers can cause marks when the laundry gets caught in the heating housing at the top of the door seal. Check around the top of the door seal where the hot air is pumped into the drum. Try using a clean cloth to rub all around to see if you can replicate any black marks. This normally happens if overloaded.

  10. Just wanted to close the loop on this: took me a while to get parts (LG 5220FR2075L & 5220FR2006H) and arrange for repair help, but replacing the two water inlet control valves above did solve the problem. The leak was on the cold side, but it made sense once all the trouble had been gone through to unstack the dryer and open up the washer to replace both valves. Thanks.

  13. Hi, Those Classixx w/ms are known for the spider to fracture an arm... Take a look on youtube for some examples. Also how to replace a spider (the rivets have to be drilled out and replaced with bolts) It's quite a job as the outer drum has to be split open, but repair kits are available, depends how hands-on you are.

  14. Hello, just updating the thread: Engineer came, replaced the PCB, programmed it and the issue wasn't resolved... He's going to order another part related with the "controls" (he used another word but forgot!). So frustrating, bought a machine I thought would be good, at a higher price, payed for extended warranty from John Lewis and it's been almost a month without being able to wash my clothes 😕 Will let you know what the issue was if it ever gets fixed!

  15. Thank you bob 12241! Another Beko washer dryer saved WDR7543121. Second time this has happened. First time the board was changed under warranty and when it happened again this week I changed the D7 diode (STPS2H100) and the lights are back on and working as expected. many thanks

  16. Another Beko washing machine (WDC7523002W) that wouldn't turn on, fixed by replacing the D7 diode. Total cost of £8.18 for a soldering iron and the part. 5 minute job to replace. Very pleased :) Cheers bob12241

  17. Just in case anyone wonders what happened - replacing this wiring harness has solved the problem. Maybe I didn't describe it very well initially? We paid £30 for an initial call out. £90 for the parts and labour, with the original £30 then deducted, so a grand total of £90 which, although ridiculous on such a new appliance, wasn't too hard to swallow!

  18. Thanks for posting this Paul. I have the same problem. I had Miele tech come out and they told me I needed a new drum and drum bearing. When you say the "inner drum spider" is corroded, do you mean this. Seems like if this is corroded, the inner drum would be loose??? In my case, from what Andy said, the inner drum has moved forward slightly--because the shaft slipped in the bearing or??? Any help much appreciated. Sure not getting any from Miele. They just want to sell me a new one while my 11 year old machine is in excellent condition.

  19. Absolutely made up! Single mum of 2 children and currently doing an apprenticeship, so as you can imagine I was devastated when the washer wouldn’t turn on. I got advice and was told the PCB board would need replacing. i came across this thread, ordered the part, and today followed the steps and within 50 minutes it is back on and working! I can’t thank @bob12241 enough! You are a legend! Xxx

  21. Well I finally got to the bottom of the leak and my Samsung Ecobubble is fixed. I removed the tub but before I separated the two plastic pieces of the tub my wife had the idea of filling the tub outside in the garden with water. There no leak from the tub seal but there was a leak in the front half of the plastic tub. This was where a piece of metal had broken off the spider arm was jammed between the outer plastic tub and the tub seal and had scored a groove in the front half of the plastic tub. I had noticed this before but I didn’t realise the groove was so deep. Anyway, I filled the groove

  24. Much gratitude to bob12241 and jonboyuk for taking the time to write these instructions. My 4 year old Beko had precisely this problem and replacing the D7 diode with a 'STPS2H100 Schottky Rectifying Diode 100V 2A' did the trick! Now I just need to fix the issue with the dryer that cuts out after a minute or two!

  25. Hi Andy I see. I would have replied earlier, but I honestly thought you decided to take a break. It's good to see you back. Just when I thought it was all over, the gremlins return. It's just puzzling. I plan to start filming again tomorrow. I will keep the thread updated. Thanks again

  26. Weird... I keep posting a reply but it never shows up! Again... 5 hours ago, Whitegoodshelp (Andy) said: I've also long thought that renting Miele washing machine out would be a great business though I hadn't thought of Miele themselves doing it, which I like. If I see your face beaming out of a Miele magazine ad announcing this service, I'll want my cut... ;o) Yes, the cabinet (of our 8yr old machine at least) is as good as they make out, very tough. And good to know the bearings are well made. The biggie for me

  27. Hi. I might be misunderstanding but it sounds like the pump impeller which if it’s come off the shaft will mean the pump will no longer pump water?

  28. Hi to all again, looks like another run of Beko machines with the same fault. I can't help but think how many customers have had this problem and had to get a service engineer to fix it, this forum has produced a high amount of satisfied people who have repaired their own machines at a fraction of the cost, representing a small percentage of actual faults. Its a shame this can't be brought into a wider audience then Beko might be shamed into doing something about it. My thanks go to Andy for his efforts and this website. I have previously alerted Beko to the problem but have had no response

  29. hi all, I wanted to drop a note to say thanks to the suggestions of the spark. I had exactly the same issue after my caravan tripped, the washing machine was plugged in, switched on (but not being used) and seemed to be the only casualty of the trip! If it wasn't for this thread, and the £5.06 for a pack of 5 replacement D7 parts, I would have been getting a new £2-300 machine. Thank you, D7 is definitely a problem here, Beko take note!

  30. My thanks to everyone who contributed to this post. Washing machine powered off part way through a wash, and the fix was exactly as described here. I replaced the diode at G7 and now it is working perfectly. @woodall1979 i bought a pack of these from here: https://uk.farnell.com/stmicroelectronics/stps2h100/schottky-rectifier-100v-2a-do/dp/2849663?CMP=KNC-GUK-GEN-KWL-RLSA-PUR-TEST-47B&mckv=_dc|pcrid|444436191572|&gclid=CjwKCAjwjqT5BRAPEiwAJlBuBT4FFQtAcCum8PN7ktiMU2koB3Tetuze7gLKR1Za5MHpz4toUl6zBhoChW4QAvD_BwE I'm certain you could nab it elsewhere for much cheap

  31. Hi Milus I cannot say it is the same fault as it does occasionally show different symptoms eg: low, almost silent beeps, and very dull indication for a minute or 2 as mine did, but two things are common and that is (1) no display and (2) no response to any buttons. The only thing you can do is check the diode yourself to which a full run down is shown complete with pictures courtesy of Jonboyuk. Do not attempt this if you are not able or unsure, you might be able to get a friend who is capable to check it out for you. Repair engineers are unlikely to do this as it is not in their remit pl

  32. Thanks for your reply - unfortunately I did contact Ransom spares first who were at a loss as to what size was needed and it was they who advised me to get in touch with Hotpoint. Luckily my husband has already replaced bearings on other machines - successfully so instead of a new machine it's worth laying out around £20 to give it a try!! When I do find out the bearing sizes I shall post on here to let other people know.

  33. Hi Andy i saw this article Regarding the pcb failure, when you do replace pcb you have to buy the programmer on top of that and it is not worth it, as the pcb will Be around £100 and the pcb reader will be around £150 and for myself diy it is not worth it. i might as buy another Hotpoint washing machine. Thanks for your reply.

  35. I've got a hypothesis on what causes the beeping. My fairly new washerdryer INDESIT XWDE751480 started randomly beeping some time ago, showing no obvious pattern. Googling for solutions didn't help. I decided to run a cleaning program as instructed in the manual (hold A and B for 5 seconds). Somewhat about 5 minutes in the program the washer went into a beeping frenzy. It got me nervous and I had to switch it off. This incident tipped me off to the idea that the temperature might be associated with beeping. The evidence is: 1. All the beeping happens only during the wash cycl

  36. hi Andy well, bought aftermarket bearings, this was a difficult job - as the case is solid the drum has to come out of the top, which means everything out then machine on its side to drag drum(very heavy) out on a board. time 8 hrs including fitting bearings. reasemble 5 hrs.start the machine even more noisy. i then took it out again and this time split the inner and outer drum - the spider riveted to the drum was corroded and split on all 3 sides (new machine ordered). over the last 6months i have replaced the door rubber(started to shred), the dampers as the machine was vibrating and finally

  37. Hi Bob12241 and Jonboyuk..... I just wanted to pass on my thanks for all I have read thus far.. After returning home from a night shift to my frantic but lovely wife this morning, informing me that our unit WDIR 7543101 - Washer/Dryer had failed i almost passed out. I was looking at having to purchase a new unit until I read what you Bob started and jonboyuk finished. I have ordered the diodes and you guys have given me the confidence to at least try this solution first so thank you again guys. Regards Craig

  39. Hi Andy, thanks for getting back. Believe the RoF function may have been invented by Miele themselves (they have a patent out on it at least). In short, a small amount of water enters the drum and then the machine sloshes it around before spinning the drum at 1600 clockwise, and then after that doing same anti-clockwise. (AEG/Zanussi at least have a similar thing, but much less vigorous than the Miele). No technician, but I assume that what it does is pick up any dried bits of e.g. towel fluff from the inner drum and outer drum and also maybe the water circulation system and pump the

  40. I've contacted both Arcelik in Turkey who make the dryers for Beko, and Beko themselves. And for good measure I have filled out an online form for UK and Ireland trading standards . it said on their website 'if you think you have come across a safety issue on an appliance fill out this form and we will see if it needs investigating' - so out of that lot , someone should get back to me. i have contacted Beko in the past about a condenser dryer not drying fully and they were terrible after sales service, so I am not expecting too much from them, but maybe Trading Standards might reply about it.

  41. I would definitely contact the manufacture, especially if you are getting small shocks from it. They should be able to tell you if the drum should be earthed or not.

  42. does indeed look like the moisture sensor bar , at the bottom of the drum , inside the drum itself - imaging that tearing off like that. Pretty bad. All i can think is that a bit of clothing catches on the metal strip sensor and then must 'pull' it out of the sensor bar housing cover . pretty poor design in that respect . I have just bought a new BEKO vented tumble dryer with sensor drying and I have noticed on these new ones they have removed the moisture bars totally from inside the drum altogether and have now put a sensor for detecting the moisture right underneath the lint/fluff filter no

  43. Just wanted to say that I also had the same problem... for the second time in a year. The first time I had no idea where to start, called a local engineer, he couldn't fix it as he didn't have spares. Then ended up spending £175 on a year's extended plan, and the Beko engineer came and replaced the board. When it failed again this year I thought of replacing the board myself. Came across this discussion...bob12241 You're an absolute star! From £175, the cost of the repair this time went down to £1.75 for a new diode! Thank you!

  46. Hi Leon. Thanks for that. Yes that drum spider is seriously corroded and cracked. That means as the drum revolved there would be movement of the drum on the shaft. The large marks show that with certain loads the back of the drum has been catching on the outer tub and should have been making metallic scraping noises. Just make sure you follow the advice in my following articles to try and prevent your new washing machine from suffering the same fate (if lucky enough to last that long) as the corrosion is associated with grease, slime and limescale build up - Washing machine smells

  48. Hello Andy. Sorry I didn't pay much attention to this as it's tumble dryers and it's only supposed to be washing machine forums. I have thought about opening it up to other appliances but I like the fact that it specialises in washing machines and it's enough work for me just dealing with washing machines :-) some tumble dryers have different settings for different types of dryness. Our tumble dryer for example allows you to set options for cupboard dry or extra dry for example. If anything I would expect a vented dryer to be a bit more efficient. Also there is a problem when mixing diffe
