Hello Beko washing machine 1200 has stopped with water in.

Customer Question

Beko washing machine 1200 has stopped with water in. I think it stopped the first time the water went in as no washing powder was used. Any ideas please.

Hi Lindsey

I think this may be a problem with the drain pump.

Do you happen to know the full model number at all?
The 1200 is just the spin speed.

Do you know does the drain hose connect under the sink or is it in a seperate standpipe?

Lastly, does this machine have a filter on the front? If yes, when did you check it last?

Hello Rob


The No. is WMA 520W - in a separate stand pipe.


can't see a filter.


I expect it is the drain pipe. Will have a check out soon.


Thank you.

Hi Lindsey

Lower the waste pipe into a bowl.
The water should flow
Raise the hose to stop the flow.
Continue till the drum is empty and no water flows.
Retrieve the clothes.

There is in fact a filter behind the flap on the lower RHS.
Put down towels and a shallow bowl and slowly undo the filter
Do it p again to stop the flow
Afgain, continue till no more water flows, then remove the filter

I suspect the culprit is in there !!
