Re: I hear pump working no water
Unplug the machine and allow it to cool completely.
need to get a priming pump to inject water with
Look into the reservoir and find the soft
tubes. There is usually 1 or 2. You will need to locate the inlet tube.
Plug in your machine and turn it on.
Fill the priming pump with water.
Open the steam knob.
Press the brewing button.
Now the pump will activate. Quickly make a tight seal with the priming
pump and the inlet tube and force water into the tube.
As soon as you have injected the water, turn the pump off by turning
off the brewing button
Once you see water being pulled
through the machine, replace the tube into a FULL water reservoir and
let the water run out of the steam wand for 1 minute or until you no
longer see sputtering. Your machine is now re-primed and ready to use

beko take water in for few seconds then switch to test pump.....if alls well....then it restarts again...if yours doesnt........check the pump first... if it fills with water then stops.......check motor brushes .........
The machine knows what the water level should be at every step of the program, so if its full when it should be empty, is not filling when it should be or is taking too long to fill or empty the program will abort and count down in seconds as you describe.
First - check the drain filter for blockage!! if clear, can you hear the drain pump running on 'drain' program? a chug chug chug noise. If not pump may be jammed or seized - or the drain tube maybe be blocked at the waste connection on the sink, etc. Or maybe the water supply pipes have blocked or got turned off? Possibly the waste pipe may not have been installed correctly and the machine is syphoning empty? ie the end of the waste pipe is lower than the water level in the machine - so it syphons empty like draining petrol from a petrol tank! That would empty the machine when it should be full.
Check all the basics of filling, draining and filter before suspecting anything else.
Any time you run out of water when the machine is operating, you will need to prime the machine again through the wand not the brew head. Turn the knob on the left and then turn the machine on. The pump should get quite after a few seconds and water should come through the wand. If it doesn't you need to turn the machine off. Get a asperator bulb or you can use a turkey baster. Fill with water and stick on the end of the tube going to the pump . Turn the machine back on ( the knob should still be open), and squeeze the bulb to force water into the line. If the pump changes tone, turn the machine off. Remove the bulb and put the tube back into the tank . Try the machine again.
if it was out of gas completely, after filling with at least 5 gal, turn key on, without starting. You will hear pump come on. After pump stops, turn key off. Repeat this procedure three times an the engine should start after the third time.
If the motor is spinning very rapidly when it should just be tumbling then it sounds like the tacho has gone or come loose on the motor.It may well need a new motor or there could even be a fault with the main programmer
I just had this same problem. It had to be something with the flow from resevoir to first puncture needle...then I realized that I sometimes used the "use your own grounds" accessory, which in trial and error, had sometimes over-filled. So I figured grounds have clogged the top needle, as opposed to the exit needle that support pages always talk about. I filled the resevoir with hot water and ran that through. The hot water + the brewer making it even hotter did indeed loosen up some old grounds up there and cleared it out...and then I did it a second time to get a little more. If hot water doesn't work for you, try some CLR, but don't use the machine normally. Let it sit in th resevoir for a bit, then use the machines drain function without heating the CLR. Then run a few water cycles through to rinse out the CLR.
Try unplugging the machine for 30 minutes then plugging it back in. I am worried that the pump is bad due to the fact that it needs water to add resistance to work properly and without water the pump spins so free the it burns itself out. But first try unplugging the dishwasher first
