This answer was rated:

I have a Beko dishwasher which isn't washing properly - I have cleaned out all aspects of the filters and the sprays, it has salt and rinse and and liquid as separate elements - there is water going into it - but just sounds odd and obviously isn't doing something! Any ideas? Thank you Kristin

Hi

 

Sorry for the delay in getting to your question.

 

Do you still need help with this?

 

If so can you post the model number please.

 

Also once it has filled up can you hear the water being pumped round?

If so does it sound weak?

Hi, no problem about delay. The model of the dishwasher is: DE2541

It does sound as if its trying to pump the water and looking at the disher that were in there I think a little bit of water got around but not much at all....

Does this sound familiar?

 

Thanks

Hi

 

Ok we need to know how much water is in there.

 

Set the machine going and once its filled up and starts washing open the door and see how much water is in there. Make sure the water level is way above the filters at the bottom and let me know.

I've done that already and it doesn't to way above the filters - but it covers the grill filter completely and I was a litte worried it was full enough to get out the door - but it didn't, but I don't think its as full as it normally would be when I have opened it when its was fully functioning..... blockage?

Hi

 

Ok set it going again but this time once it has filled up and washing open the door and add a jug of water so the water level comes up and close the door and see if it starts washing a lot better that way.

 

Let me know what happens.

Hi

 

Ok sounds like it may be a faulty wash motor.

 

If you want to try and repair yourself then you will need to pull the machine out and take off the top and the bottom plastic cover on the front under the door and the right hand side panel.

 

From there you will the wash motor. Take this out and make sure theres nothing jammed up in there.

 

If thats fine then its possible the motor is faulty. But you can try and replace the capacitor first. This is a white or sliver cylinder with a few wires going to it.

 

Replace this and see if this cure it. If not then the motor is proberly the cause and will need to be replaced.

 

If you need anymore info just get back to me.
