your mixing valve needs to be replaced iis what brings the cold water in to cool the hot water off, depending on the unit you will have to ask the company but it might be the heat sensor beings alot of newer machines have computer boards

30 is a very good temperature for encouraging the growth of moulds and bacteria, and 40 is a near perfect temperature for doing so.

There are a few steps you can take to reduce the severity of the common problem you have.

1. Run the machine empty on the highest temperature wash possible (ideally 90 degrees C, but even a 60C cycle will have a positive effect). As you have an existing problem, give it a few goes to start with and consider adding either laundry bleach or peroxide powder (any of the stain removing "oxy-action" type powders are pretty good at bug killing). Afterwards, run at least one boil wash per month, either with items suitable for boil washing or if not just run the machine empty.

2. Between washes, always leave the drawer open an inch or two and leave the door ajar to allow air circulation.

3. Weekly, remove and clean the detergent drawer and the aperture it fits into, and clean the door seal.

4. Try lower dosages of detergent and conditioner. Overdosing just wastes money and provides food for the moulds and bacteria producing those foul odours. Manufacturer's recommended dosages are always rather generous as they sell more product that way.

5. Try different brands of powder and conditioner. For some reason, certain brands (especially of conditioner) cause problems in certain machines, and it's not necessarily the budget brands.

6. Keep your conditioner in the dark. Once opened, if any bug spores get into it the light just encourages them to breed.

7. Consider using an all in one powder which includes the conditioner. Apart from saving money they seem to cause fewer odour problems.

8. Avoid liquid type detergents, other than the special types designed for woollens and silk washing. Not only do liquids cost a lot more, they are ideal breeding soups for some bacteria.

9. If you have to leave laundry in the machine for a few hours post-cycle, consider setting the machine on rinse hold until you return to it. By leaving them in a soggy pile inside the machine they effectively become a textile compost heap and also become far more creased. Rinse hold slows the process down a great deal and reduces your ironing time, so the small time penalty in allowing the machine to complete the final rinse and spin when you return is usually more than offset.

Cothes are being put on a 40 wash but coming out stone cold is there a way to check if water is heating as no fault is flashing up on display

I would expect the clothes to be cold after the cycle is finished, as it will have completed at least 3 cold water rinses, so I do not think you have a problem.
If you want to check if the heater is working o/k, then select a hot wash programme, say 90 degrees, and feel the door glass after 30 mins or so, it should feel warm , and if the heater is not working, then normally the washer will not complete the programme.

A 40 degree cotton wash takes around 3 hours to complete cycle, manual states 90 minutes, any ideas ?

It is possible the heater element is not working, you need a meter to test it with, and make sure you have selected the correct programm for what you are washing as some programmes can take up to 3 hours to complete.
Hope this helps.

I have a beko WMA 1715s washing machine, it will not work, the pre wash light is just flashing on and off, it will let you select a programme but when you press start it wont work, please can you help, i...

Either the child lock is on - press and hold quick-wash and anti-crease, at the same time for three seconds.

Or your machine need re-seting

Turn power button off (not at wall)
Select 90 degree wash
Press Start and Cancel button down at same time for 3 seconds and turn power button on whilst still holding buttons down - Start light will flash.
Leave power on.
Select any Spin position.
Press Start and Cancel button at same time again for 3 seconds - other buttons may start to flash - if they do, press Start and Cancel button together again for 3 seconds.
Machine should be re-set ready for use.
Good luck!
