Hi, We have a Beko WMI71641 and its stuck on a cycle and won't do anything. Tried holding the start/ pause button down but this does nothing.

Hi mate, just tried that and no luck.
Thank you for trying that test.
this means you will need a new main control board.
Its easy to fit and I will help you with that as well if you want?
Only a few basic hand tools are needed.
Also I will tell you the best place to get that part, are you in the UK?
i will stick with you until this is fixed but since this may take some time, if you will rate my service in a positive fashion thus far before you close this page, the system will allow me to schedule free follow ups with you and also ensure your question will NOT close or time out;-)
You will then be able to contact me at anytime at no additional cost until we have this fixed for you.

Thank you *****

Hello mate, the cycle seems to be working now although the door doesn't unlock and it hasn't drained the water. Does this still mean the main control board needs changing?
Hi if its working now you may just need a new door lock,
I would try replacing just that for now.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Ok cool, what about the fact it's hasn't drained the water?
Hi that would explain why the door lock isnt working as well, you may have a blocked drain line or a bad pump, please check that also see if your unit has a drain spot you can clean?
Let me know what you find.
thank you
Tech Michael
