Beko Fault Codes

Beko washing machine fault codes and spare parts

This set of fault codes only pertains to the Beko WM series of washing machines but it may also relate to other Beko models that use the same PCB from Invensys for a controller and have five LEDs used. 

These error codes may not relate to ALL Beko WM series washing machines. If you are unsure please ask in the forums as well as for all other Beko washing machine fault codes.

Before you start any investigation of the fault or even remove the lid of your Beko washing machine please read and fully understand this article in full and pay particular attention to the safety and information notices at the bottom of this page as they contain extremely important information!

Please remember to support our site by buying Beko washing machine spares from our spare part store and, if you decide that you really need an engineer please support the local repairers that help make this site possible, you can search for a repairer from theengineer search facility.

  Beko 5 LED Washing Machine Fault Codes

These fault codes are written for washing machine repairers and not for the general public by Beko and they assume a certain level of competence on the part of the user in diagnostic routines. We have added some notes to try to assist you in determining the nature of the fault you have but, you will still need to investigate each failure on its own merits. For more help and advice on fault finding on a washing machine please refer to our washing machine fault finding guide from this link before you begin which will help you diagnose the problem with your Beko washing machine..

Please check that any Beko washing machine spares recommended are suitable for use on your particular model and serial number. If you are unsure about the suitability of any spare part please ask to ensure that you get the correct spares for your washing machine. Please, don't guess or assume as spares can be altered on a production run with the same model number having several different alternative components used.

  More Help For Beko Washing Machines

Should you need more help and guidance please use the links from this article as most of them will help you to understand your Beko washing machine a lot better and probably very much help you in diagnosing the fault you have. Of course there are many other articles on the site that will also help you do this.

In addition you can post in our help and advice forums after registering but please do pay heed to the information below before doing so and read the guides, they are there to help you.

You must understand certain things before you begin or attempt any repairs on your own and we want to make these points very, very clear to anyone that decides to investigate one of these or any other washing machines:

  • We are not responsible for your safety, you are and by using this guide you accept that and accept that any damage that you may cause and work undertaken is entirely at your own risk.
  • We will advise the common causes of the fault codes but we cannot guarantee that any parts or work recommended will resolve the issue. It is entirely your responsibility to diagnose your particular problem and resolve it.
  • We are not responsible for you buying spares that do not resolve the problem, this is down to your own diagnosis not ours.
  • No warranty is inferred, implied or given.

You also have to know that fault or error codes are not a "magic bullet", they will not tell you what the problem is, they will only offer you an indication of where the problem lies and they are no substitute for good old fashioned diagnostic skills. You can find out more about what fault codes actually tell you in this article. So please be well aware that, even with this new found knowledge you will still have to actually be capable of investigating and diagnosing the problem and this means adhering to basic appliance safety for working on them.

Please note that manufacturers can and do change fault codes without notice and we cannot guarantee that these error codes will apply to your particular model as all codes apply to a wide range of appliances and not normally any one specific model. To determine if these fault codes do apply to your particular Beko washing machine model please post a request to confirm this in the forums.

Check the motor carbon brushes first.

After that I would suggest using the forums for more help.

My Beko washing machine every so often starts a wash with a hot wash of over 2 hours when a quick wash was selected, no other display apart from time of wash. Can anyone else advise of this problem or how to fix it.

hi, WMB91442LW runs through the prewash/wash cycles and ends with 30 odd mins left. No rinse or spin. One engineer has suggested the waste hose blocked (checked and found nothing) and another says the board at fault. the machine is 14 months old and 2 months out of guarantee. Could it be a H7 fault

I have a Beko machine and it's showing spin/end light which won't come off...so every time we try to put a load on it won't go to start the cycle.

Yesterday my washing machine beko wmb91442lw started to make a funny noise. Then it stopped letting any water out. I opened the overflow bit to see if there was any lime scale or hair or anything else in there. But there was a spindle that wasn't attached to anything. Is this a recall problem? The machine was brought at the very end. March 2013. Would be grateful for any advise. Thanks.
