This machine has had minor problems for while, in that it sometimes missed the spin cycle at the end (although it would always spin properly on the spin/drain setting).

Now it won't spin at all, it gets through the washing part of the program and at the point it is supposed to rinse and spin, it just moves the washing around at low speeds with the drain pump running all the time.

I've already cleaned out the pump and the drain hoses leading to/from it.
Any suggestions?

There is no capacitor on the motor.
The brushes have about 20mm of length left on them, no sign of any damage to the contacts on the motor, no loose wires in the connecting plug/socket.

Hi . Would love to know if you solved problem on your Beko wash machine. Ours seems to have identical fault and we have cleaned out pump & hoses.

Starting point would be to check the motor brushes for wear.

Hi, I have the exact same proble, however my bushes are fine.
When I use the machine, it will start, everything will work problerly, like filling etc, and the drum will spin, however, It will stop half way through the wash, Like its crashed like a computer or something, I have reset the machine 100's of times and cannot find the fault, could my door catch be faulty?

Hi, If you pull the PCB off the machine and have a look at resistors R19 and R36, they may be worn. I found mine burnt out completely, It turns out this is a common fault on these machines and a replacement PCB is approx 65, I had decided to buy another machine for 50, but the resistors can be replaced fairly easily with a soldering iron, I am still wainting to find the resistance vavlues of resistors R19 and R36. Thanks
