Beko WDR854P1N1W washer dryer


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Firstly, apologies if I’ve missed this question when I searched through previous posts.

My less than 3 years’ old Beko WDR85854P14N1W washer dryer stopped working then started working intermittently. I called out a local repairer who advised initially the diode needed replacing but when the machine started to work intermittently, he backed away suggesting I get a Beko engineer to fix it.  He mentioned, it might be the PCB. (Beko were completely unhelpful, bah!)

So, I would like any advice on troubleshooting the issue before I buy a new PCB.

Has anyone on this forum come across similar issues with their Beko washer-dryers and can you offer me some advice?

Hi. There’s a popular thread on this forum about a Beko PCB with faulty diode. The problem is even if it is that most repair people including Beko will not replace components in a PCB, only the whole board. So you would need someone who understands and can test individual PCB components to try to fix it.

Hi, thank you for your advice. On balance, I would go direct to replacing the PCB rather than testing individual components. The cost of the replacement seems reasonable if I do this myself, which is feasible. I was wondering though whether the problem was in the control panel circuit board. Hence my request for help in making a more precise diagnosis.

I will look again for forum thread for Beko.

Here it is 

 

It’s not necessarily the same fault. Unfortunately it’s a risk fitting one in case it isn’t that though it does sound similar.

Thanks Andy. I'll read through the topic and decide my best approach.

Had a long conversation yesterday with another independent repairer and I can see from his experience that manufacturers are no longer interested in sharing their latest developments with the independent repair sector, in preference to appointing single repair partners. This works against the public interest because there is no opportunity for price competition.

The consumer either takes the quoted price for the repair replaces the appliance. Manufacturers are controlling the marketplace to suit the bottom line of their companies. All the talk about CSR & sustainable longevity for appliances is nothing more than greenwash.

Many thanks again for your help.

Yes indeed. The 70s and 80s was the perfect combination of a thriving independent appliance repair sector and manufacturers service. Back then the manufacturers totally accepted the independent repairers and proactively helped us. 
 

They sold us full technical manuals and circuit diagrams, and supplied us with all spare parts at good discounted prices. 
 

Since the early 90s and onwards the independent repair sector has been massively reduced. In Sheffield it used to be highly competitive, with possibly hundreds of individual repairers and shops. 
 

It’s all changed now. Even the manufacturers can no longer make a normal repair service economically viable. They’ve mostly all moved on to insurance and maintenance based policies instead of single repair charges. 
 

The reasons are complicated and a lot needs to change to get anywhere near a sustainable system. 
 

Regarding the new “right to repair”, I recently wrote an article where I explained why I don’t believe it will change anything- white goods right to repair
