Beko Dryer Not Working (How To Fix/Reset)

Beko dryers are reliable appliances that can provide you with years of faithful service. Like any other brand of appliance, however, things can happen and the dryer may not always function as designed. When your dryer starts to act up, you may be able to fix the problem with a simple reset. 

If your Beko dryer isn’t working, the first thing to try is resetting the appliance. This is done by pressing and holding down the Start/Pause/Cancel button on the dryer’s display for 5 seconds.

Holding down the button will cancel any current cycle the dryer may be on and reset the appliance. Once it has been reset, press the Start button again to restart the dryer. 

A reset won’t fix any problem that the Beko dryer can experience. In fact, what a simple reset can do is rather limited. However, most experts recommend performing a reset whenever the Beko dryer has been repaired. This helps clear out any cycles that the dryer may be stuck in after servicing. 

Beko Dryer Not Heating

Dryers make drying laundry quicker thanks to a heating element inside the appliance. These heating elements also have various other parts, such as a heater fuse and a thermostat, that help them maintain the appliance’s drying time and temperature. When one of these parts stops working, it can throw a wrench in the dryer’s ability to heat up. 

When the Beko dryer isn’t heating, the issue is usually with a tripped heater fuse. The heater fuse is a safety feature that prevents the dryer from overheating and helps reduce the chance of a fire.

In order to fix this problem, the heater fuse will need to be replaced. This will require taking the back of the dryer off, removing the blown fuse, and replacing it with a new one. Other options for why the Beko dryer may not be heating up is a bad thermostat, faulty heating element, or the exhaust vent being clogged with lint and debris.

If the issue is simply a clogged exhaust vent, removing the offending debris will take care of the problem. For other issues, such as a bad thermostat or heating element, you may need to reach out to an appliance repair technician for assistance. 

Beko Dryer Not Drying

A Beko dryer not working as intended will quickly turn into a frustrating experience that leaves you wanting to pull your hair out. After all, the entire reason to have a dryer is to dry your laundry in a quick and efficient way. The good news is that one of the most common causes of a Beko dryer not drying can be easily corrected in a matter of minutes.

When your Beko dryer isn’t drying, the first thing to check is the lint trap to ensure it is clean. If the lint trap has a buildup of lint and other debris, it can interfere with the dryer’s ability to dry your laundry properly.

For best results, the lint trap should be cleaned every time you use the dryer, either before you run the dryer or after the dryer has completed the cycle. If the lint trap is clear but the dryer still isn’t drying properly, check the exhaust vent/pipe. Like the lint trap, lint and debris can build up in the vent/pipe causing the dryer not to heat up as it was intended.

Beko Dryer Not Draining

Some Beko dryers, such as condenser dryers, have a water tank that collects the water accumulated during the drying cycle. This water will need to be drained after every cycle. A water drain can be installed on the dryer that automatically sends the water out of the appliance, or you can manually remove the water by emptying the water tank.

If your Beko dryer isn’t draining and you have the appliance connected to a water drain pipe, make sure the pipe doesn’t have a clog. Any clogs will need to be removed before the water can drain out of the dryer. 

For dryers not connected to a water drain pipe, you will have to manually remove the water tank from the dryer and dispose of the collected water. In most cases, the dryer’s warning light will flash when the water tank needs to be drained. This will let you know ahead of time that the tank needs to be addressed. 

Beko Dryer Not Spinning

One of the ways that Beko dryers efficiently dry your laundry is with the help of a spinning or tumbling motion. The dryer’s drum will tumble and spin the laundry so that all areas of the fabric are exposed to the heated air. When the drum doesn’t spin, the laundry stays in one position for the entire cycle. This will cause the top of the laundry to dry, while the bottom remains wet. 

When the Belko dryer won’t spin, the issue is usually caused by the drive belt. When you manually try to spin the drum, it should be stiff and hard to move, which signals that the drum belt is working properly. If you can easily spin the drum, the belt is broken and will need to be replaced.

If, however, your dryer isn’t spinning and you cannot easily spin the drum with your hand, the issue could be a faulty door switch or a seized drum. Both issues require the help of an appliance repair technician. If the dryer is still under warranty, you may not even have to pay for the repair. Simply reach out to Beko customer service for assistance. Make sure to have your dryer’s serial number ready to give to the customer service agent. 

You can find your dryer’s serial and model number by opening the dryer door and looking along the rim of the door opening. The number will be located near the bottom.

Beko Dryer Not Starting

Certain Beko dryer models have a locking clip that secures the door shut, and if this clip breaks or fails to activate, it will prevent the door from shutting properly, which in turn keeps the dryer from starting.

If your Beko dryer won’t start, check that the red locking clips are working properly. If they are missing or broken, you will need to replace them. The lower panel of the dryer will need to be removed in order to gain access to the clips.

Replacement locking clips are available for purchase at the official Beko website. Make sure to have your Beko dryer model number when purchasing the clips to ensure you have the right ones.

Is There A Reset Button On A Beko Dryer?

Reset buttons are nifty little devices that help clear small problems that appliances, such as dryers, can experience. They are usually located in out of the way areas so that you don’t accidently press the button. Reset buttons are most often found on newer technology, such as smart devices and cameras. However, it is not that uncommon for appliances to also have these buttons. But does a Beko dryer have a reset button?

Most models of Beko dryers don’t have a dedicated reset button, but you can still reset the dryer by pressing and holding down the Start/Pause/Cancel button for 5 to 10 seconds. After the button is released, the appliance will reset and clear any current drying cycle. 

While most models don’t have that dedicated reset button, there are a few Beko dryers that do have a thermal fuse reset button. This button isn’t easy to access, and is located on the heater that is behind the rear panel of the dryer. In order to access this button, you would need to unplug the dryer from its power source, remove the back panel with a screwdriver, and then locate the button on the heater. 

Most consumers won’t need to access the thermal fuse reset button unless they are changing the fuse on the dryer. It is best to leave this task up to a professional, especially if you’re not familiar with the heating elements and fuses of a dryer. For more information about the thermal fuse reset button, consult the dryer’s owner’s manual or reach out to Beko customer service.
