Beko Washing Machine Error Codes

Whether you have an LCD or LED display on your Beko washing machine, we will guide you on how to identify and interpret these error codes. We’ll cover a wide range of error codes, explain their meanings, and provide troubleshooting steps to help you resolve the issues. Please note that while this information is applicable to various Beko machines, it’s always a good idea to consult your owner’s manual and seek professional assistance if needed.

Types of Displays on Beko Washing Machines

Beko washing machines can have two types of displays: LCD displays and LED displays.

  1. LCD Display:
  2. LED Display:
    • The LED display on Beko washing machines works in Binary Code Decimal (BCD) format.
    • The spin speeds on the LED version are assigned preset values.
    • There are five spin speed positions regardless of the actual spin speed (e.g., 1200, 1400, or 1000).
    • Each position has a preset value: 1200 is equivalent to 16, 1000 is 8, 800 is 4, 600 is 2, and no spin is 1.
    • When there is an error code, one or multiple lights corresponding to the spin speed positions may be illuminated.
    • By adding up the values of the illuminated positions, the error code can be determined. For example, if the 1000, 600, and no spin lights are lit up, it means error code 11 (8 + 2 + 1 = 11), displayed as E11.

These displays help users monitor the machine’s operations and provide valuable information about error codes, facilitating troubleshooting and maintenance.

Understanding LED Error Codes

Understanding LED Error Codes
Understanding LED Error Codes
  • LED display indicates error codes through illuminated lights representing different spin speed positions.
  • By adding up the values of the illuminated positions, you can determine the error code.
  • For example, if the lights corresponding to 1000, 600, and no spin are lit, the error code would be 11 (8 + 2 + 1 = 11), displayed as E11.
  • LED error codes can help identify issues with heating, water intake, drainage, motor, and more.

Deciphering LCD Error Codes

  • LCD display directly shows error codes such as E03, E09, E29.
  • Some error codes are not displayed during regular wash programs; you need to enter diagnostic mode to access them.
  • LCD error codes can indicate problems with sensors, heating systems, water supply, door locks, and more.

Troubleshooting Beko Washing Machine Common Error Codes

Error Code 1: Poor Washing Performance or Water Heating Issues

  • Possible NTC sensor fault related to sensor, wiring, or open loop circuit on the circuit board.

Error Code 2: Heating System Fault

  • Check for loose wire connections or a blown heating element.
  • PCB issues could also be a possible cause.

Error Code 3: Constant Heating or Overheating

  • May indicate a heater-related fault from the circuit board.
  • Check for constant energization of the heater.

Error Code 4: Water Intake System Fault

  • Verify if the water valve is defective or continuously filling due to circuit board issues.
  • Diagnostic mode can help identify this fault.

Error Code 5: Drainage Problems

  • Check for water flow restrictions, pump or waste pipe blockages, or power supply issues.

Error Code 7: Pressure Sensor Issue

  • Inspect wiring and test the sensor using a frequency meter.

Error Code 8: Water Supply Problem

  • Investigate potential causes such as kinked pipes, no water supply, or faulty water valve.

Error Code 9: Door Lock Fault

  • May involve the circuit board not energizing the door lock or issues with the door and wiring loom.

Error Code 10: Door Lock Circuit Issue

  • Usually appears when the door won’t open during diagnostic mode.
  • Check the circuit board’s ability to energize the door lock.

Error Code 11: Motor Fault

  • Common symptoms include no motor action, jerky drum movement, or complete lack of spinning.
  • Investigate motor, circuit board, or wiring connections for issues.

Error Code 13: Motor Communication Error

  • Similar to E11, indicating motor problems or issues with communication cables, control modules, or circuit boards.

Error Code 17: Excessive Foaming Warning

  • Not an actual error but a warning in diagnostic mode.
  • Alerts excessive use of soap powder or liquid leading to excessive foaming.

Error Code 18: Excess Load or Drum Imbalance Warning

  • Another warning indicating an imbalanced or overloaded drum.
  • Remove heavy items or redistribute the load for balanced spinning.

Error Code 29: Operating Voltage Out of Limit

  • Indicates operating voltage below 220V or exceeding 240V, beyond the circuit board’s capability.

How to Retrieve Error Codes on Beko Washing Machines?

  • Method 1: Access service mode by pressing and holding the Start button or turning the knob.
  • Method 2: While the machine is in a cycle, press and hold Spin and Pre-Wash simultaneously to view error codes.
  • Error codes may appear as E01, E02, E17, etc., depending on the specific issue.
  • Error codes can be cleared when the machine is turned off or after viewing them.


Beko washing machine error codes can provide valuable insights into potential issues with your appliance. By understanding the LED and LCD error codes, you can diagnose problems related to heating, water supply, drainage, motors, and more. Remember to consult your owner’s manual and seek professional assistance if you’re unsure about performing repairs. With the troubleshooting steps provided, you’ll be better equipped to resolve the error codes and keep your Beko washing machine running smoothly.

Key Notes:

  • LED error codes are determined by adding the values of illuminated spin speed positions.
  • LCD error codes can be accessed through diagnostic mode and directly displayed on the screen.
  • Troubleshooting steps for common error codes include checking components, wiring, and circuit boards.
  • Retrieve error codes by entering service mode or using specific button combinations during a cycle.
  • Consult the owner’s manual and seek professional help if unsure about performing repairs.
