Question about Beko Washing Machines
Hello all i have a beko DRVS 62W tumble dryer...it has recently stopped producing heat but still spins.i cannot find a reset button plus i have tried to find the test mode with no success.i have also cleaned all the filters..i need to get this machine working but cannot afford for an engineer (i am disabled on esa) any help and advice would be very much appreciated many thanks tracy
You are asking a subject which can be dangerous, since there is a gas chamber and gas involved. First check that no one has turned off the gas ballcock valve which allows gas to flow to the dryer. And that your main Home Heater or stove is working. Once you have established that, depending on model there should be an automatic ignition which lights the pilot. I'm not familiar with your model, but most dryers have a thermocouple which keeps the pilot lit. The auto reset should be near the pilot device. If you could look into Dryer by removing the access door, or sight glass (if any) you should be a pilot light or an activation of the light once the dryer request heat. As said I don't know your model, but look for a thermocouple, if you don't know what a thermocouple is, go to a Home Hardware or Appliance Repair Store and request a thermocouple. You are under no obligation to buy simple by becoming familiar. The problem with giving advice with gas appliances is that other items can cause the safety to be tripped. A crack in combustion chamber, a loose screw which changed the gas to air ration, the venting of NOX requirements. It will take some thought and knowledge, and physically seeing the devices, it could be just a wire which fell off the control valve. Ideally when it comes to gas you not only need the right tools, such as water & soap (which blows air bubbles the kids use) to check for leaks, but small wrenches, and perhaps a cleaning of the orifices. A stripped telephone wire works the best. Trace the wires from the area next to the pilot to the other end, the reset button should not be far away.

SOURCE: Dryer does not dry clothes
On the top of the heater box there is a thermal fuse that blows if the dryer overheats, on this model it could occur if the air circulation fan is faulty, or the condenser valve is faulty, alternatively the sump hose filter may be blocked, only a closer inspection of these items will determin which the problem is.

When your front load washer starts to shake violently it is usually because the 2 shock absorbers are done.
Parts cost about $10 each. You need to take the top off the machine and the front. The bottom bolts are accessable from the front. The top bolts are harder to get at and a helper is very usefull.
Put a little blue lock tight on the bolt threads when reinstalling them.
