This was exactly what happened to my 18 month old beko,  I bought a soldering iron and with zero experience replaced the diode and saved myself a small fortune.

thanks bob and other posters.

as a side note I (stupidly) soldered the diode the wrong way round initially and this resulted in the display flashing slowly on and off.

cheers,

david

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

Bob. You beauty. Another rescued machine, so therefore confirmation that it fixes this issue on the Beko WDIR7543101 integrated washer/dryer. I took the liberty of taking a series of photographs,

Hi there, just came to say that Rob's post above turned out to be exactly what was wrong with mine as well! My washer was only 2 years old and suddenly stopped turning on one day. First I thought it w

Hey all,

I have a Beko WDIR7543101 washer dryer that won't turn on. If I put my ear close to the control panel, I can hear an occasional mouse-esq beep! 

I'm guessing it's the same issue?

Is there anyway I can find a guide on how to open the thing? I'm not an experienced white-good repairer, but I have soldered various things over the years :)

Hi Jonboyuk

I mentioned it's location and how to remove the unit in a previous post on this subject, it is housed in a black enclosure  (located at the lower rear RH side) which either unclips or has a few screws to remove the top cover. This applies to the Beko WDX8543130W and not your model, although it is likely similar in construction and different models use a variation to this PCB (not compatible though). I would check the same location if I were you. Please let me know how you go on for future reference.

 

Regards Rob

Hi all - I really could do with your help as I m struggling to remove the pcb I’ve found it and removed the screws on the back which holds it in place - does the whole casing come out or do u somehow unclip the case? Never done anything like this before but really think this is the solution to my problem - if I can just get the board out I can take it to someone who can solder a new diode on for me.  I just don’t have £200 spare for an engineer and as my dad also bought  the same washing machine  on my advice I better know what to do in case his breaks too. Thanks in advance

Hi Lesley

The whole unit complete with casing comes out, in previous post I said that you have to jiggle it about, passing it down and under some pipes or other obstructions. You may have to cut 1 or 2 cable ties that hold the wiring loom in place in order to get enough slack to remove it. I assume the screws you are talking about are the ones that hold the casing in place, if not you have to remove them first. If you google "main circuit board Beko WDx854130w" and go to images you will see some with and some without the case.

Thanks so much for helping - I found the casing was stuck in place with strong foam sticky tape - hard to get out but with someone tilting the machine back for me it went back so much easier and thankfully the machine has now has power after replacing the diode - so thanks very very much

Hi- this is a useful thread, I only wish I'd seen it a few days ago- same 18 months old BEKO wdr7543121w, replaced the whole PCB (Damn!) , was so pleased I've actually got lights now....but now got an E23 error code.

any advice on how to reset ?  I've tried the usual- start button hold for 5 s etc?

Thanks

Hi Lynn

I have searched around and been unable to find error codes for Beko Washer Dryers even in the online manual, only for washers. The error codes for washers only go up to e18, it may be that the extended codes relate to the dryer section. The only way to find this out is to got through a self diagnostic test which you should be able to find on the web.  The code e23 might  be responsible for blowing the main board previously, just guessing though. I don't suppose you know what function/programme it was running before it failed. May give a clue.

Regards Rob

Bob. You beauty. Another rescued machine, so therefore confirmation that it fixes this issue on the Beko WDIR7543101 integrated washer/dryer.

I took the liberty of taking a series of photographs, and made a brief guide below. This is just my experience, and I'm not a qualified electrician / white goods repair man, so you follow this guide at your own risk!

Cheers, Jon

1. Drag the machine out on some cardboard! Make sure to isolate and unplug the device from the mains, the water and the waste before undergoing any of this work.

2. Remove the  5 screws from the rear

The black box is located here at the bottom right

3. Remove these two screws to loosen the box

4. A piece of sticky foam holds it down, so run a knife along it to separate.

5. Carefully jiggle the black box out and make sure you de-clip the cable holders from the machine (circled red below) to allow you to move the box. The front cover just slides off to reveal the board.

6. Now it's out, carefully unplug all connectors

7. Gently lever the board out of the black box #

8. Replace this diode (D7) - see Bobs recommendation. I personally used these.

9. Reverse all of the steps above, and turn on!

Many thanks jonboyuk. Also I have some good advice that is obvious when you think about it but many people don't. Before pulling off any wires or connectors to anything, always take some good photos with your smart phone. You would not believe how many people don't think this is necessary but then later find that they are not sure exactly how something fits back. A perfectly designed PCB should have unique connectors for every connection so that it is impossible to get them wrong but I have seen many examples where this is not the case and I've even seen examples where the connector block could be fitted upside down.

Andy , jonboyuk, Can't fault your replies, great job by jonboyuk. Sometimes you forget what comes naturally to some people is complicated to others. Maybe I should have taken the same steps as you did. But it's done now and with style. Will definitely be useful to anyone that takes the time to read all the posts.

Question for Andy, can you put an amendment to the subject header to include other models affected, as google search isn't showing them yet? as it appears I can't edit my original post.

Great work Rob

Hi Bob. There's too many to put in the title so I've added more models numbers to the tags on the post but it will only let me add so many. I've put other model numbers in your first post. We must be doing something right as a lot of people seem to be finding this article. Thanks again for your help.

I guess it was just my way of saying thanks. You saved me about £200, so thanks to you!

Thank you Bob and team! :wub:

D7 Diode replaced on a 18 month old machine with minimal use in our holiday lodge. Another successful cheap fix here! £1.75 including P&P Much to my husbands surprise and delight. (Although the extra screws, plastic stay and double-sided sticky tape that holds the black box on did flummox him to start with). :D

Beko you must take this problem seriously and get all your WDIR7543101 's with this issue fixed free of charge to keep some loyal customers from leaving you. :angry:

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!

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

Hi Craig, someone else had this issue and it was resolved. Have a look back at all comments.

I also had the same problem, the machine stopped dead in the middle of a cycle, I found this thread and I am delighted to say that on Saturday we swapped out the D7 and the machine sprang back to life. 

 

Thanks for posting the solution bob12241 and thanks to jonboyuk for your step by step guide as we have the exact same model. Saved me around £350 and I now know how to do a spot of soldering.

Hi, 

My beko washing machine WDIY854310 suddenly lost power front panel last month. I found the diode D7 in the main power PCB was faulty, then ordered a new diode as Rob advised to replace D7 but still no power to front panel, when power on, only a beep can be heard. 
Could anyone tell me what other problem would be and what to do next? Thanks. 
Regards, 
 

Joe

Hi Joe , I can't offer any real advice other than making sure the diode is soldered in the right way round, The silver band indicates the orientation. The diode is likely to fail if some other fault occurred thus overloading the power supply.
