I have same problem with mine (not BEKO) what I have discovered is, it seem to be where the water hasn't run off properly before drying, so I make sure I don't put anything in flat where water can collect. It's not always possible to put things in that are not flat, but try that

Check your heating element..
A bad heating element causes many problems in dishwashers…
Dishwashers are appliances that work in the kitchen to clean dishes. It
has rules to govern its use and when those rules are broken, the
dishwasher will fail to work. The General Electric dishwasher is a
great addition to kitchen appliances
and also has a set of maintenance rules to ensure proper functioning.
If for some reason the machine decides to malfunction, there are a few
troubleshooting ideas to look into.
Eliminate abnormal odors in your General Electric dishwasher
by removing any food particles found on the bottom of the machine.
Locate any plastic, paper or other debris blocking the pump inlet and
remove. Unblock the spray arm jets with a paper clip.
not overload the dishes, as this can cause poor drying. See that the
dishes are not touching each other. Make sure the water temperature is
between 120 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit for best drying performance.
under the sink to locate the water valve found on the water line. If
your dishwasher is not filling up with water, make sure the valve is
open. Turn the valve all the way to the left.
sure the water pressure isn't too low if the dishwasher isn't filling
up completely. Water pressure must be 20 to 120 psi. Make sure that the
inlet water hose connected to the dishwasher is not kinked. Remove the
toe-kick plate on the front of the bottom of the dishwasher to check
whether or not the dishwasher drains while filling, as this is a sign
of either an air gap in the drain hose, or the loop from the floor to
prevent backflow of water isn't 32" high. If either problem is located,
fix it. Check the water level when the fill cycle has completed. The
level should be just under the heating element. If it is not, you will
know the water is draining while filling.
* Worn wash impeller (depending on design). Test by placing a glass upright in upper rack with full charge of water in the basin. Run dishwasher for 30 seconds. Glass should fill up. If not, replace wash impeller.
* Debris caught in spray arm holes. Remove spray arm and clean out with water and compressed air.
* Heating element burned out. Check water temp during wash--should read between 130 to 140 F.
* Insufficient water fill in basin. In most models, proper fill level is just up to the heating element. Much less than this will result in poor cleaning. Hope this helps.
I have the same problem dishwasher seems to try to wash but not get anywhere. have tried tipping dishwasher to empty excess water out, filters and arms cleaned. dishwasher just takes in water, hums for a bit and then the cycle ends after about 20 mins but obviously dishes are not clean
