Question about Washing Machines
My beko WM5554T stopped in the middle of the cycle, the door light stays on but the lights in the control panel are all switched off. I have replaced the door lock but that still doesn't help. Would it be the main controls that aren't working or maybe a fuse?

this appears to me that you have had one problem and created another, based on what you say i guess the original fault was the pump or a blockage in the outlet system, now you have dismantled the door catch and made that a fault, if possible replace the door catch with one that is known to work, then retest to get back to original fault its a bit like "my telly doesn't wok it must be the on off switch" there's much more than the switch to anything, hope i have helped, if so rate me please

make sure the tap is not broken off ,if the tap is good that means you switch is bad, replace it. hope this information could help you.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
