Hello, my Beko washing machine is not working properly. To start with, I removed the filter/drain cover and found a front door key along with a few other items caught in there, however, whilst trying to remove it, some of the plastic pieces inside snapped off. I fitted the cover back on and the machine was working fine, despite part of the plastic bits having snapped off.
Now, I've noticed that the machine is stopping around 24 minutes before the end of a cycle and thinks it has finished - says 'END'. I'm having to drain out the water from the bottom (via the tube) and then having to try the rinse and spin cycle, however, it does it but the clothes are still really wet and some water is still inside the machine.
Because the machine was smelling a bit, I ran it on the hottest and longest cycle and by doing that I noticed that with no clothes in the machine, all of the water drained away from the drum (still some coming out from drainage tube on the bottom). However, putting in a few clothes again (half my usual load just to test it), it stops on 24 minutes remaining, like before. I've had a look on the internet, and I think the problem might be the water pump that might need replacing - has anybody got any other ideas as to what the problem could be? eSpares sell a new water pump for around £25, and to save money, am thinking about replacing it myself (have watched a couple of videos on how to do it). Has anybody had the same problem with their washing machine? Thank you.
