Sounds like inside the drum a dog waste bag or a small plastic bag for something plastic has melted onto the heating element
this can be removed for checking not easy bit fiddly but at least you can rule it out
ah you think i didnt have plastic in my wash

got kids?? then the soap drawer is the place all dirty things go to get washed
sounds like some plastic flapping about above the drum drain port

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
Here are my complete, general pre-typed guidance notes for checking filters and motors ;-0)
-------------------------------------
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Ok, turn the washing machine off and unplud. Open the flap at the bottom left of the machine. Put a bucket underneath it. Unscrew the cap. Water will pour out - lots of it and very quickly - so make sure you have a bucket underneath it and lots of towels round that.
Once the water has drained out, check there are no blockages in there. You may find that some coins or buttons flush out with the water. That will be your problem.
Once clear, screw the plug back in and turn on machine.

It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors or back feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET valve to open up and allow water to flow into. If this does not happen then the voltage at the inlet valve must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If the water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the dry spin with the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water from the clothes during the spin.

Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Were you able to check the operation of the pump itself?

If not following are my complete and hopefully 'coverall' pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Washing machine fills with water but then won't wash, spin or drain


Hi Claire if your beko washing machine wont drain or 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

you might find this test video helpful but only do it if you have checked the motor

Water not draining from washer. cannot open door. isnt there just a spin cycle i could go to instead of the entire wash cycle? i have already put it through 2 more cycles hoping the spin would drain...


Hi lauraeuschwa,

I believe your drain pump filter is just clogged. The drain pump is trying to pump the water out before the Spin cycle, but can't. Usually this is caused by a foreign object that is obstructing the impeller. See my tip on how to access, drain & clean the Drain Pump Filter:

ACCESS, DRAIN & CLEAN THE DRAIN PUMP FILTER

After this, the Spin cycle will run, after the drainage procedure. If it does not, then you may need to replace the Drain Motor. Which is a easy task.

Kind Regards :-)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
'SUD' stands for suds or sudding meaning that the machine cannot empty properly because there is too much 'air'/bubbles for it to do so. It maybe that you are using too much powder, fluid or too many tablets for you wash. When SUD appears the machines usually go through extra rinses to try and get rid of the suds before continuing.
Hope all of this helps and good luck!

I have a whirlpool front loading washer model number ghw933pw4... I have a code of f-6 that flashes and wont drain.... Now it wont get out of wash cycle , and flashes number where its at in cycle... ex- 50


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France @18:00 Sun afternoon/evening.

If, as you say, it 'wont drain' that is sufficient for the machine not to be able to continue operating. You will need to find and check and, if necessary, clean the drain motor lint tray/filter especially if you have had the machine for some time and the filter has not been cleaned. I try to remember, or am reminded by my wife, to check ours about every 3 months

Although I do not know your particular model the filter is normally to be found behind the lower front panel which is held in place by some plastic screws. These are (normally again!) removed by turning through 90 degrees anticlockwise.

REMOVE POWER FROM THE MACHINE AND HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE AND/OR RAGS TO SOAK UP ANY WATER!

The cover/large knob for the filter should then be visible and turned anticlockwise to remove. The filter may or may not come out with the cover. If not gently persuade it out and clean.

It is again normally possible to see and check that the drain motor is free to rotate by hand/finger.
If the filter is perfectly clean when you check it, it COULD be that the drain motor is malfunctioning.
It is possible to check the operation of this motor by re-applying power, switching the machine on BUT EMPTY and immediately on to a spin cycle at which time the motor would, and should, be running.
Hope this all helps!

Cheers,

John C

Gives codes ld and ob when in the spin cycle and wont complete the cycle even when load is redistributed. had a repairman here and he replaced an electrical part that was spendy. Still doesn't work....


The OB indicates and out of balance condition has been detected by the motor control.
One thing about the OB error is that the lid must be opened to clear the error and allow the washer to advance to the next part of the cycle. If the lid is not opened to adjust the clothes then the OB error will happen again.

If the OB error was cleared and the OB occurs with an empty load then the motor control has failed.

The drain pump must work. The image below shows how to run a diagnostic test to check the drain pump. Follow the instructions in the image below and check the drain pump operation. If the pump runs and the water does not drain then the sump is clogged. If the pump hums but does not run then the pump needs to be replaced.

start by cleaning out the filter in bottom,
remove the access panel bottom 3 screws , open filter , some excess water will spill ,
clean it out,
next clean under the rubber flap around front of drum.
run borax through a cycle.
run clorox in a cold cycle
the issue may be that the back of the drum is coated with waxy goop from using too much softener,
