Question about Dishwashers

Open Question

I have a Beko DE3542FS dishwasher which has stopped heating the water. I know the heater element is ok because I have had it tested. I was wondering if the thermostat was faulty if this would account for it not heating. The element has had 240v applied and becomes hot. So my reasoning is that it is either the thermostat or the programmer. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: Fills with water, sounds like it starts to pump water then stops, then start again

you have a wash pump problem. can be 1 of 3 things. most likely something is caught in the pump impelor if not the wash pump motor may be faulty or ceized or it could be the capacitor for the wash pump motor is faulty. you can try removing the wash pump yourself and check the impelor if it spins freely then you will have a motor problem.
hope this helped

I have the same problem and have found that it is caused by as you suspected a burned out heater element. they can be purchased on the web for £15.95 at partmaster .co.uk

SOURCE: Stays in wash cycle Whirlpool Dishwasher Du1050SS

my repairman contacted whirlpool about my washing machine staying on
wash.. to his surprise.. and mine.. and his co=workers.. this is the answer,
it worked.. and we have never heard this before.

In your original istallation booklet it tells you to let the dishwasher run til its complete
the first time you use it as it may rinse twice... my original installation man told me this also.

however.. if you suffer a "blip" in your electricity.. it could put the little dishwasher "brain"
out of whack.. it can run as long as 3 to 4 hours on wash to reset itself.. if you stop it
(like others have mentioned.. and which I did also).. it doesn't complete the reset and it
will attempt to do it the next time..

answer?.. just let it go once as unnerving as this is.. it works.. They did mention that
if it went to 5 hours.. call your repairman because you need a new mechanism.

Beko DE2542FS does not heat the water replaced the heater uint already


Replace the heater element only if your tests with a multimeter shows an OPEN CONNECTION.
If there is continuity then the VOLTAGE on the heating element must be checked , if not the program controller unit or the relay drive can be faulty.
Use a multimeter with the power disconnected to trace and confirm.

Goes through its program but does not heat water. Bench checked heater element works ok


If the heater element is working, that leaves the thermostat and the control board. You can test the thermostat and rule that out or pin point it as the problem.

Trying to replace heating element in Beko dishwasher but can't find where element is, can you help


if you have already got the new heater and it looks like this, this it is an inline heater. These are usually mounted where the inlet water enters the wash sump.

Should be connected to the water solenoid which looks like this.

I have beko dishwasher works fine but no hot water is it just the element which needs replacing or could it another problem MODEL DWD4310S


How far is your water heater from your dishwasher. I knew someone who had to get a circulating pump. His dishwasher was so far form the water heater so when the dishwasher would fill, it used the cold water that is sitting in the pipes and by the time the hot water got there, the dishwasher didn't need any more water. the pump will keep the water circulating back and forth to and from the hto water heater. Or you an get one of those electric small heaters that heat on the spot as well.

Beko washing machine


hi there.......this problem could be caused by a failed heater element ...if the element is not heating the machine will just wash wash etc...the front panel will have to be removed to check the heater element....if the element is ok...check the heater NTC ( little white plug in the heater element)...if all ok here....then you have a main PCB board failure....

it may be more economic to have beko send an engineer to you...
