Beko WMP652W washing machine will start cycle but get stuck at end of wash, doesnt go onto rinse or spin any help please?


see the next steps and use the common sense: God bless you
When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem: It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

I pull the start botton and it does not start or load water. and I don't know what is wrong with my machine.


ok lets see here,, first we need to make sure your timer is working, put it in a spin cycle and let it run and see if it shuts off ,, if it does your timer MIGHT NOT be bad try and see if it will fill with hot water, then warm, then cold,, if it fills with hot i is the cold side of your water valve, if it fills with cold its the hot water side of your valve,, if hot and cold doesnt work it could be your wter valve, or your pressure switch

Dishwasher fills with water, then empties, fills then empties, and repeats this cycle a few times - then decides to work. then part way through cycle - it repeats this frustrating cycle, making the whole...


Hi, Your dishwasher may pre-heat the water. If so, and if the water entering the dishwasher is cool, the heater may take up to half an hour to heat the water. To avoid the wait, increase the incoming water temperature before turning on the dishwasher. Do that by running the kitchen sink faucet until the water runs hot. Or increase the temperature of the hot water to the entire house at the hot water heater.
Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it.

Water doesnt pump out to start rinse cycle


Seems the timer is sticking at the drain cycle. Manually move the timer and see if this helps. If this works then the timer is bad.

Machine fills with water & then clicks but goes no further. It will drain but no other function seems to work


That is probably a problem with the timer.

The cycle doesn't advanceWhen the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

    Dishwasher problem


    If the cycle doesn't complete, check these:
    1. Water-heating cycle
    2. Timer

    Water-heating cycle
    Many dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What happens next, depends, as follows:

    On some units, the pause is timed and the unit continues after the allotted time. 


    On others, the cycle can't continue until the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of dishwasher and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle problem" is fixed too. 

    Timer
    Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it.

    When the washer fills up, first thing that actuates is the diaphragm switch under the control header. This is directly connected into the timer. The diaphragm switch starts the timer motor listed on the diagram as TM. Check the timer motor. If its working you can see something rotating in a little window on the motor. The motor operates all the internal cam switches.
