Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Beko wma510w only spins when it feels like it

It only spins when it wants to- it is mechanically capable of spinning (because it does sometimes) but sometimes just doesn't. if you then put it on a spin cycle it just drain pumps, doesn't spin. Sometimes it get stuck on pump/drain for hours and hours, and never gets round to spinning. The next day it will be fine.

The only thing that sometimes works is turning it off AT THE PLUG SOCKET and then turning it on, selecting a new wash (usually mini 30 or synthetic cold for time/momey's sake) and running the whole wash again.

I have the same model and problem. I suspect the problem is due to the machines sensor which detects when it is off balance. The problem is most likely to occur when doing something like a single large towel. You can see it thinking about spinning but as soon as the drum starts to wobble it slows back down again.

Any ideas on how to stop this happening (sensor replacement) would be useful.

Hi can you tell me how to change the brushes on my beko washing machine please? Its a Beko WMA510W, thanks

If the motor in queston is a C.E.Set or Sole, you can do it by tilting the machine back against the wall. Otherwise, you'll have to take the back off and remove the motor by opening the bolts. Easy to change the brushes after that

Washing machine wont spin and only drains when it wants to

This means to just restart the wash cycle. But I say the culprit is the lid safety switch. Make sure it is not stuck. This is the main reason washers will not spin.

Beko washer

hi there.....this problem can occur with the W510 if you have selected the 30minute wash and loaded a full wash load....the 30min wash is to be used with a 2.5 kilo load only.....if the problem is occuring in other selected programs then you can check (a) is the machine draining...if not check filter and pump..(b) check the motor plug that it is secure....remove it refit and test.....check the carbon brushes in the motor....and lastly if al the above are ok then you got a faulty PCB Board.
