Test Mode Sequence

If you have problems with the drum not turning or spinning. Then check the carbon brushes in the motor first and test the motor separately before running this Diagnostic sequence as you could do damage to the PCB.


To enter test mode.

 It is advisable that washing machine be switched off or at least 5 minutes prior to entering test mode

With the machine switched off shut the door and turn the dial to the 12 o'clock position. Now press and hold down the start/pause button and press the on/off on, while holding the start/pause button down for 3 seconds until the display shows a number or error code.

  Now that you've entered the Diagnostic / test mode, remember every time you press the start/pause button this will be one advance the program to a new test.

  • 1: All the the display or led’s will flash to check that they are working and door will now be locked.
  • 2: Drum does a clockwise rotation.
  • 3: Drum rotates anticlockwise rotation 
  • 4: Goes into spin mode on clockwise rotation make sure there are no clothes in machine before performing this test as washer will spin at its fastest rpm. 
  • 5: right hand water valve check
  • 6: left hand water valve check
  • 7: both water valve are now activated and all 3 compartments will have water flowing in. 
  • 6: This is the full wash and heat test. Machine will start to fill to the correct water level and continue to heat and wash.
  • 7: the machine will empty. the pump should drain the water away.
  • 8:After it has finished turn the machine off and on this will go back to normal mode.

    Hi I have Beko WX742430B . And due to the on/ off switch being on the selector dial I can’t carry out the self diagnose, is there another way of doing this on the machine , the machine starts a cycle and then stops after a few seconds , the bushes on the machine were down to nothing so replaced them and now suspect that the pcb is broken , any help you can give will be greatly appreciate

    Hi i have a beko wtb841r2w that is tripping the rcd ,it can trip it right at the start of the cycle or at any stage during the cycle.

    • This can be many things bad wiring touching the casing, a motor fault or an element braking down without having the machine in front of me it a hard one for me to help on

    We have a Beko WME 8227W and suddenly when we are unable to use it. On the main dial the only display that shows details is the Daily Quick one, but even that will not start. All other cycles have no details displayed. Tried pressing & holding Start/Pause/Cancel button for 5 seconds to reset but it made no difference. Also Cleared out some debris in the Filter but still unresponsive. Watched your YouTube video and entered Diagnostic & Testing mode ok, which display a number 8365. When releasing the button the full display illuminates as in your video, but start does not start the Testing Sequence. In fact no button will start the sequence, nothing happens whatsoever.
