Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain 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. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

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!

My washing machine was switched off mid cycle. Now the start/pause, ready, wash & spin/end buttons are lit up. I have switched it on and off from the mains. No change. It is a beko wm6123w. Please help


Try looking in the troubleshooting section of the products user guide/instruction manual, if you have lost this, you can normally download a copy from the manufacturers (beko) website, this is normally located in the support section of the websites.

have you tried pressing the start/stop button as the cycle maybe simply paused.

The Child lock is in the on mode lol.....
Press and hold the two buttons quick wash and anti crease or
pre wash and extra rinse for 4-5 seconds ...Note the pre wash blinking light will go off and your machine will be ready to use again. the pre-wash blinking light indicates that the child lock has been activated......
