Customer Question

My Beko DW602 Dishwasher has stopped heating water.
I have tested the resistance across the inline water heater element and am getting a reading of 28 ohms, (which I believe is ok).
Can you suggest any other reason for the problem.

The Beko dishwasher is approx. 3 years old.
You mention that the fault is likely to be the T Stat.
Is the T Stat the same thing as the NTC, (thermal limiter) ?

Have replaced the t-stat with new item from espares, but the dishwasher is still not heating water.
Any more suggestions ?
Expert:  Michael replied 1 year ago.
Hi I would also try changing the coil as well, 28 ohms may not indicate it as good.If that doesn't help then your problem is the main control board. Rare, but that seems to be the case.I would replace the heater first to be sure. Its not very expensive ;-)Tech Michael

Just for your future reference.......I purchased a new heater element.
The reading across the new element is 29.6 ohms.
The reading across the old element is 28.4 ohms.
With the new heating element and Tstat installed the dishwasher still does not heat water.
An expensive new control panel pcb could be the answer, but I think I will buy new dishwasher.
Thanks anyway.

Hi thanks for letting me know that. Yes then this is either a bad wire (unlikely) so yes the next step would be the control panel.Happy I could verify that for you and I wish you the best with your new machine if that's the route you will take;-) Have a great day.Tech Michael ;-)
