Hi if your Beko washing machine has a spin problem then you have to check the carbon brushes first.
Also check all waste pipes are clear and inspect the pump I have included this video below.
At our website I am doing self diagnostic videos on these beko's as we speak so all tutorials will be in this link below How to replace Beko Washing Machine Motor Carbon Brushes
Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.
Coming the second aspect if the above gives no result: Perhaps you need new carbons brushes for the motor. It is a fairly straightforward repair. Remove the top cover, screws at rear, and slide top cover off towards the rear. The motor is located at the top right right rear, you will see the drive belt. Slacken the bolt that holds the motor, and push the motor down towards the top of the drum. You will see the 2 brush holders, they will be either black or white, pull the wires off the holder terminals, and depress the plastic lug that holds the brushes in place, slide the brushes out of the motor. The length of the brush should be at least half an inch long or replace. Fit new genuine carbon brushes, and follow instructions on packaging. Push the leads back on to the carbon terminals. tighten up motor, and make sure the belt is reasonably tight. Test on final spin before you refit top cover. (Spares can easily be located on this very site - Fixya) There are very gud videos on YouTube to guide you. If helped pl click so.
May be the motor carbon brushes are worn. This is usually a cheap repair 10 or 20 pounds if u can do it yourself , but disconnect from mains , take out motor , remove , replace carbon brushes, ( some motors don't have them) you can understand what I mean, my advice is estimate from local dealer but dont get conned with new motor ( I think its carbon brushes only) . pete
Sounds like the motor coils are gone ,The armature would have been arcing hence the sounds you heard this may be cured by replacing thermal cut out ..This is Buried within the coils.....Check wiring to the brushes are ok also
Things that couse this are, worn motor brushes, unplug remove the top, the motor should be at the top, if so remove the wire attached to the spade of the grey cartridge then unclip using a very thin screwdriver pushed down the back of the cartridge, and slide out if there is only a small peice of brush showing they must be changed, if ok spin the drum by hand if it moves freely the the drum is ok, the last thing to check is if it moves through the wash, but its just the spin that it wont move, there is a blockage, and the preassure vessel wont allow it to spin.
Hi dave, Its nothing you have done! It will need the carbon brushes changed in the motor as they have got low. The arcing is caused by the brushes not touching the com properly. Just change them and it will be all good.....
It sounds like it needs new carbons fitting in the motor.

fit new genuine Hotpoint carbons, and follow instructions on packaging. Push the leads back on to the carbon terminals.
Tighten up motor, and make sure the belt is reasonably tight.
Test on final spin before you refit top cover.
Plz rate my solution.
yes easy to change there are 2 of them look for a single wire going to each side of your motor when u find each wire u have found were your carbon brushes are right you will need a pair of bent nose pliers place the ends either side of the plastic casing if the carbon brushes squeeze and pull the first brush should pull out take wire of now the 2 brush you wont be able to see but its directly across from the first 1 do exact same to take that 1 out now before replacing the new brushes there a small slot running down 1 side of the plastic at the end you will see a small metal bar push this up which will release the carbon now you can fit them
