Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Are you refering to the main motor when you say 'Its not the 'pump' and its not the brushes' or have you been able to check the separate drain pump and clean the filter, please?
Because I do not know your answers and just in case with no promises ;-0) ---------->

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.
Here are my complete, general pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the filter and the motor ;-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 most are 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!

    Hi Kirsty, I presume it's the main motor which 'has (had) new brushes put in'? Sorry to ask but have you tried checking the drain pump action (last paragraph above), please? It's unfortunate that 'wack_sue' did not qualify the 2 thumbs up by explaining what was wrong with hers if my notes didn't clearly identify ;-0( Bear with me on this ;-0) Cheers, John C

Hi if your beko 1512s 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

My beko washing machine is stuck on the end spin cycle and stops and starts a spin in short bursts.it has water in it and wont move on from this.


Hi jennyandeddy,

Most likely your washing machine is trying to drain, but cannot, and as such cannot start to spin.

Please follow my Tip below, for detailed directions on how to access, drain & clean your Drain Pump Filter (Please Note: Your Filter compartment is located at the Bottom Right):

DRAIN PUMP FILTER

Hope this helps :-)
