Question about Dishwashers

Open Question

Beko DSFN 6835 won't start its cycle or pump water into the machine. There seems to be a very faint humming noise when it is powered on. Seems to be draining, as the insides are dry.

SOURCE: dishwasher pump will drain but not force water into spray arms

If the washer is not used regularly the shaft can stick to the seals and prevent the motor from spinning. This happens quite regularly for me if I don't use the washer often. You can just take off the bottom panel - after shutting off power to the dishwasher - and access the motor. you should see some fins and then just try to spin the motor by hand. It usually takes about 90 degrees of rotation before the motor breaks free from the seal. You'll have to fight through the spring-like resistance created by the seal-shaft adhesion. After it breaks free the motor spins freely and you should be all set to go. I haven't found a more permanent fix for this other than running the dishwasher more regularly.

If you are still trying to sort out this issue try the following.

From what you say then it is most likely the aqua sensor on the side of the dishwasher. The gurgling sounds that you hear are likely the drain pump running and the un-drainable water sloshing in the sump.

Verify that there is actually water going to the dishwasher( Basic step but often overlooked)

Next the inlet valve will have to be checked. This is the part where the water line from the house connects to the dishwasher, under the toe/kick panel. Remove power from the dishwasher. Disconnect the dishwasher electrical connections (2 wires) to the inlet valve and connect it (carefully to 110 V power) using a jumper wire. With 110V power the valve should open and water will flow into the dishwasher, if not then the fault is in the inlet valve.

If this checks fine then the fault is likely in the aqua sensor...

On the outer left side (viewed from front) there is a panel, Behind this panel there is a small clear(of light blue) plastic mechanism with hoses and wires attached( There is usually a yellow disk at the top about 6cm in diameter) this is a float and sensor assembly there is tells the control the water level and works as an emergency drain if there is an issue. There will be a red stick protruding downward to the base and a Styrofoam float on which the stick rests. This is a pan overflow sensor if the stick is too high the unit will go into drain and cut off the fill valve power. The yellow disk is a diaphragm which senses water height. This unit can become stuck with wear and hard water.

SOURCE: GE Nautilus won't drain after Rinse Cycle

Check disposer plug. If a garbage disposer has been recently installed, it is possible the disposer drain plug was not removed. The drain plug is a plastic piece in the disposer that blocks the hole where the dishwasher hose connects. Also check the hose connected to the disposal. Mine apparently had a kink in it. When I straightened the hose the dishwasher drained at full speed (I recently had a plumber re-route a hot waterline. He must has bent the hose). Hope this helps. If not go to the GE website. That's where I found my answer.

Did you try switching the power on whilst holding the start button only for at least ten seconds.if you can pull the machine out enough to tip it 45 degrees toward the rear so no water leaks when you open the penny trap to see if a button of coin has lodged in the drain pump.good luck.

Water will not drain from Beko washing machine, (no power).


If there is no power it seems that the power supply to the control board has failed or the control board itself has failed. You need to trace the voltage to confirm before proceeding further.

It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

Machine makes the clicking noise when you press the start button but the machine wont start, It has a faint humming noise.


G'day, be sure water is on, try changing settings from hot to cold or vis-versa to test out each solenoid (these are electrical taps at back of machine which hoses connect to). Be sure water is on. And then make sure door is closed to make sure it is not the trip switch (you can also try machine on spin cycle to test if the trip switch on door is problematic). If the machine seems to still spin, it would seem that water is just not getting in... Try changing water level... this could be faulty and be telling the machine that its full, but i doubt it as it would still run dry. Check water is on
Hope this helps, let us know how u get on

Doesn't seem to be draining water out after the rinse cycle. Just seems to make a humming noise.


Have you checked the pump for blockages? very common on these machines and has symptoms as you describe. Try blowing back down drain hose while it is humming (be prepared for a possible rush of water)

GE washing machine does not run, gives humming noise


A washing machine is a simple product.

When trouble shooting anything you have to know what is supposed to do and what is it not doing.

At the begining of a washing machine cycle the machine fills with water until a switch is made telling the machine it is full and ready to agitate. Since it never fills it will stick in that part of the cycle.

When you start a cycle and no water enters the drum you have one of three problems:

1. The water supply is shut off.
2. The solenoid valve that supplies the water is not opening.
3. No power to the washing machine.

Since you are hearing a hum, the machine seems to be trying to activate that valve,
The humming noise comes from the electromagnetic field that activates the valve,
