Operating Teething Troubles
A Beko dishwasher not working can be due to a range of Beko dishwasher faults. These include issues with the:
- Water fill
- Heating and detergent dispenser
- Water pump
- Water inlet and draining
The above can all be tested on an initiated test cycle which will stop at any point where a fault is detected and the relevant error code will display. This test cycle runs through each of the functions to try and identify the malfunction source. If you have any concerns simply contact your dishwasher repair experts.
Beko dishwasher error codes are displayed as digital codes in an LED or LCD panel or display on the door. Beko dishwasher common faults are as follows:
H2 – dishwasher turbidity sensor error – this is the pump sensor that detects the detergent is there
H3 – diverter valve position error – this controls the water flow to the spray arms
H4 – NTC error – the temperature sensor is unable to be read
H5 – Uninterruptable water inlet error – malfunction of the water-inlet valve or the T7 triac on the electronic board
H6 – water inlet fault – the dishwasher is unable to fill with no water detected
H7 – heating fault – the correct temperature can’t be reached and the heater not detected
No lights – this indicated there isn’t any power, or no faults are detected
1st light lit – dishwasher not filling with sufficient amount of water
2nd light lit – inlet valve or water sensor error
3rd light lit – water temperature sensor error
1st and 2nd lights lit – heating element fault
All of these fault codes only offer an indication of where the issue lies. You’ll need a technician with diagnostic skills to find the specific fault and fix it.
A Beko dishwasher not filling could indicate a problem with the water pressure. This needs to be between 0.3 and 10 bar. Or the issue could be related to a kinked or damaged inlet hose and even drainage difficulties. If there’s no water at all this could be related to the water supply.
A defective float switch means that it won’t be able to fall back down as the water is drained to monitor the water level. This, in turn, will stop the inlet valve from opening and letting water into the appliance.
Dishwasher Salt Issues
Beko dishwasher salt problems can occur if you’ve been using table salt. This isn’t recommended as the dishwasher salt is a particular grade of granulated, crystalline sodium chloride that regenerates the water softener. The large granules allow the salt to dissolve slowly and not block the softener unit. The addition of dishwasher salt can prevent watermarks and spots by reducing limescale. Bear in mind that insufficient water in the dishwasher can also cause poor cleaning.
A Beko dishwasher not draining may be due to the position of the drain hose connected to the appliance. It should be between 50cm and 100cm above the floor to ensure it works correctly. Blocked filters can also be an issue and may need to be cleaned or replaced. An engineer will swiftly find the cause and be able to remedy it.
Another Beko dishwasher troubleshooting area is when your Beko dishwasher is not washing properly. You’ll need to ensure that the wash programme is suitable for level of soiling on your dishes. And make sure you’re loading the appliance correctly, and not overloading.
Additional factors that can affect the wash results include blocked filters, nozzles, and issues with the spray arms.
Your Beko dishwasher may not be drying the dishes properly due to problems with the vent not opening. The vent allows the hot air generated during the rinse cycle to escape. If this can’t happen moisture will remain on the dishes.
Dryer fan malfunctions can be caused by food remnants and debris blocking the airflow. Or the fan motor may have burned out and will need replacing. Heating elements, terminals, and connectors can corrode and will need to be expertly cleaned or replaced. And defective thermostats will be unable to regulate the drying cycle temperature.
