Like with most dishwashers, Beko can be reset. This is a helpful tool when you are facing issues with your Beko dishwasher not functioning properly. This can also be an essential tool if you see alert lights flashing.

You can reset a Beko dishwasher in a few simple steps. You first want to find your start/stop button.

Does a Beko Dishwasher Have a Reset Button?

While many times we assume that a reset button is a separate button to run a reset. Depending on the type of reset that you are attempting to do, that is not always the case. When you are looking to reset your Beko dishwasher, the reset button might be in a more obvious location than you would expect.

Your Beko dishwasher’s reset button is also your start/stop button. This is the button that you would use to run your regular cycle. If you are facing issues with your Beko dishwasher turning on, or if you need to reset your control panel alerts after maintenance, you can easily do this. Make sure that your Beko dishwasher door is fully closed.

You want to make sure that the latch has engaged, as oftentimes, a latch issue will lead to an issue with your Beko dishwasher starting properly. Then you want to press and hold the start/stop button. Hold this for three seconds. After releasing the button, press and hold the start/stop button again for at least ten seconds.

This acts as a reset button for your Beko dishwasher. So while it is not labeled as a reset button, this is the button that you want to turn to if you need to run a reset on your Beko dishwasher.

How to do a Beko Dishwasher Anti-Flood Device Reset

Your anti-flood device is an essential part of your dishwasher. This device is located at the bottom of your dishwasher and is composed of a few different sensors. These sensors are so important because they do exactly as the name indicates, they prevent you from returning to your kitchen to excess water running everywhere. These sensors are also indicators to let you know that there is a clog or other debris that you need to cleanout. If you ignore this warning, you risk damaging your Beko dishwasher.

To reset your Beko dishwasher anti-flood device you’ll need a couple of tools. Your anti-flood sensors are located beneath the panel on the inside floor of your Beko dishwasher. To access this area you need to first disconnect your Beko dishwasher from power. Then remove the screws that hold the panel in place

Once the panel is off before you can reset the anti-flood device you need to clean the sensors. Any debris that has managed to get into the system will prevent the anti-flood system from resetting. Using something with a good deal of water pressure, clean the sensors. You should also drain any excess water that is in the compartment. The easiest way to do this is by using a sponge and a bucket. 

Once you have cleaned and drained everything, replace the screws on the panel. Then close your dishwasher. You may also want to check the anti-flood collection area. To do this you need to pull out your Beko dishwasher and remove the screws on the side panel. 

When your anti-flood system engages, excess water is sent to an area beneath your dishwasher. After you take off the panel you will notice if there is a flooding issue by checking the area underneath for excess water. This should also be removed using the same sponge process.

After doing this, reattach your panel and reconnect your Beko dishwasher to power. Once it is on, run a regular reset. Press and hold the start/stop button for three seconds. Release the button and repeat the process, this time holding the button for ten seconds.

How to do a Beko Dishwasher Factory Reset

Like with any appliance, sometimes a simple reset won’t do the trick. When addressing issues on your Beko dishwasher, always attempt to do a simple reset first. To do this you want to open and close your Beko dishwasher door. After making sure that it is securely closed, press and hold the start/stop button for three seconds. This will engage the end-cycle process. Then you want to release the button. Press and hold the start/stop button for a second time, this time for ten seconds. If this process doesn’t work you can run a factory reset.

To do a Beko factory reset you need to disconnect it from its power source. The easiest way to do so is to cut power to your Beko dishwasher from your electrical breaker. You want to leave it without power for at least 60 seconds. After 60 seconds, reconnect your power source and run the basic reset. 

You want to use the start/stop buttons for a second time. After doing this, you should find that all alerts have been cleared. If you are still seeing alerts, or your Beko dishwasher still won’t turn on, then you have underlying issues that need to be addressed.
