BEKO WMB61431S (E17) and (E18) error codes

Hi,

I have the above washing machine which appears to be misbehaving, as its stuck in limp-mode and will not operate any wash cycles. On turning the dial, so that the machine comes on and holding in the start button, I received the E18 error code (unstable load). I removed the control board and found that one of the diodes had some electrical burning around it, although appeared to function correctly with a multimeter. I have since replaced this board with a new control board, however the machine is still in limp-mode but now reporting an E17 error code (excessive foaming).

I'm going to assume that its probable a sensor that is causing this error message, however I don't know where to find the sensor or which component may contain the sensor ?

Thanks for any assistance.

Kind Regards,

Tim

I don't think there is a "sensor" as such. The PCB software monitors the load on the motor to determine if it's struggling, or running unevenly. The two error codes you have are totally unrelated so it's a strange one.

I'm convinced that new control board that I purchased on EBAY was in fact an old used PCB which contained another fault. I ended up scrapping the machine and buying new, however I wish that I had had the time to purchase a new board from a known approved supplier and try that before scrapping it. The wife, however, had it spent enough time without a machine and my options were limited!

It's a shame. Thanks for the update though.
