Could be the main bearings have failed, and the belt has come off, remove the rear panel and check the belt is o/k, if it is, then could be motor or control timer/board is faulty.

Beko WM6355W wahing machine makes a clicking noise when the drum turns, the noise gets louder and a smell of burning rubber comes when it spins


sounds like your drive belt is damaged, it may have a small section stripping of the belt and hitting something in the machine as it turns.
take off the back and check the condition and replace as needed.

Have Beko WME7247W Washing Machine problem. On full wash the mc loads water then stops. Timer does not progress. Water does not heat. Drum does not turn. On Spin and Drain cycle pump works but spin does...


I had a similar sort of problem, and finally called a Beko engineer out. The machine was pushed too far back and had either blocked the water pipe, or waste pipe.... can't remember which, but simply pulling the machine out by an inch cured the problem!

Noisy on spin cycle


It's very difficult to advise on a noisy washing machine because you can't describe noises accurately enough. People often describe the same noises quite differently.

Generally though, if a washing machine is rumbling, and noisy on spin, the main suspect is the drum bearings. Drum bearing failure is common on washing machines due to water getting into them if the drum bearing seal fails. To check for drum bearing failure you can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand. If the drum rumbles when spun then the bearings have probably gone.

Another drum bearing failure symptom is excessive up and down play in the drum which can be checked for by lifting the drum up and down from the drum lip behind the door seal. A further symptom of drum bearing failure is a brown rust patch underneath the washing machine and down the back of the outer drum, underneath the drum pulley (where the belt goes) There are usually two small holes at the back of the drum bearings where water that has got past the drum bearing seal trickles out, and it's usually stained with grease and rust.

Other causes of a noisy washing machine are coins and other obstructions inside the water pump. This will cause noise when the washing machine is emptying the water. Coins or other obstructions can get trapped between the outer tub and the inner drum. This would produce a lot of noise on spin as they coins get tossed around inside. Usually, spinning the drum by hand will not reproduce the noise in the case of coins as the coins drop to the bottom of the tub when the washing machine isn't spinning.

A light scraping noise when the drum is turned by hand is usually a bra wire trapped between the tub and drum.

A high pitched squealing or harsh noise can be motor bearing wear. This can also be checked for by taking the belt off and running the motor alone.

A knocking noise can be a loose tub weight. This would be worse with heavy loads and would not be present on spin with no washing in. This is because the knocking noise is caused when the tub (or outer drum) shakes about on spin. Without washing inside the drum the tub doesn't move. Another symptom of a loose tub weight is grey concrete dust under the washing machine.

It's very tempting to ignore noises while the washing machine is still otherwise working. Some noises can be ignored as they will not develop into serious faults. Other noises, if left, will cause extensive damage and can end up costing considerably more than if tackled early or these days writing the washing machine off. Of course the problem is that you can't tell which of the categories a noise falls into - so ignore them at your own risk.

Drum appears to be loose and makes a lot of noise when on the spin cycle


With the washer empty, spin the wash tub by hand. The drum should be spin true without any noticeable wobbling and spin without much noise. If it wobbles or makes any kind of rubbing or banging noise as you turn it by hand. The problem is that the spider support arms are broken. It is an expensive repair job since the washer has to be completely torn apart and the wash drum needs to be replaced. Get a few estimates before deciding whether to repair or replace. Sorry.

My washer mad three loud thumps and then would not spin at all. It will pump the water out but will not spin. Do you think it is the belt. Thanks helyn


The belt might have slipped off the pulley. But when you mention that you heard loud thumps before it stopped spinning is a sign that something else might have gone wrong with your machine. With the washer turned off, turn the wash drum by hand and listen for any noises. It should turn quietly without any kind of thumping noises. Also look how the drum turns. It should turn smoothly and not wobble as it turns. If it wobbles or makes thumpiing noises, it means that the support arms are broken.

Reparing the support arms is an expensive repair, unless it is still under warranty, it not worth fixing. Get a few estimates before deciding to repair or replace it.

Drum does a small turn then stops but wont empty -wont wash either beko 1000 rpm


Hi if your beko 1000 spin 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
