I have a Beko DW600 dishwasher and the power switch went faulty.

This answer was rated:

I have a Beko DW600 dishwasher and the power switch went faulty. I ordered the switch which has arrived but the diagram I had written out to reconnect the wires has gone missing (embarrassing) is there a diagram anywhere that shows where the connections go to the switch ? Thanks
Are there markings for the connections on the switch?
What colour of wiring do you have?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

the part number of the switch is 4591 W2 and I have attached 2 photos of the wires and the switch - do you need any more information ?


I can see that terminals on 1 side of the switch are marked.

However, can you tell me what all the terminals are marked?


Does one of the double mauve/purple go to the door switch?



Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Yes one of the purple lines from the switch goes to the door switch.

Looking down onto the switch I removed with the connectors facing up I have marked beside them


5-7 1-3


8-6 2-4

OK, thanks for that.

You should contacts 1, 2, 5, and 6 with terminals.
The other numbers shouldn't have terminals.

If this is correct then the wiring is -

Incoming live (normally brown) goes to 1
Incoming neutral (normally blue) goes to 5
Double purple goes to 2
Double black goes to 6

It's worth checking the live and neutral to ensure they haven't been reversed as this was common on this model. (mistakes in the factory).

To check, you simply use a multimeter to check for continuity between the live pin on the plug and the wires.
When you get continuity, it confirms the wire is attached to the live pin of the plug and the other is the neutral.

Check it out, see how it goes and get back to me if you need more help.

Hope this helps
