Step-by-Step Guide

If you need to bypass the door lock on your Beko washing machine but don’t know where to start, this step-by-step guide will help you get the job done quickly and safely. This guide will walk you through the entire process of bypassing the door lock, including the necessary tools and supplies you’ll need and easy-to-follow instructions that even a beginner can understand. Let’s get started!

Remove the screws on the back of the washing machine

To access the lock mechanism on a Beko washing machine, you will need to remove the rear panel. Start by using a Phillips head screwdriver to remove the two screws located at the top of the back panel. After they are removed, carefully pull off the panel while being mindful not to mishandle it. Once you have accessed the locker mechanism, you can proceed with bypassing it according to your model’s specifications.

Disconnect the power cord

To begin bypassing the door lock on your Beko washing machine, the first step is to disconnect the appliance from its power source. Make sure all power cords are unplugged and any water supply connections have been disconnected. This will ensure safety measures are taken while you perform this task and your washing machine will not be powered back on until the work is completed. Additionally, if your washer is equipped with a water inlet filter, it should be removed at this time as well.

Remove the top panel

In order to bypass the door lock on a Beko washing machine, the top panel of the machine must be removed. To do this, you will need to unplug the machine from its power source and locate two screws at the back of the washing machine that are securing the top panel in place. Using a Phillips-head screwdriver, unscrew these screws and carefully lift up and remove the top panel from the washer. After removing this panel, you will have access to all of its internal components.

Locate the door lock assembly

Before attempting to bypass the door lock on your Beko washing machine, it is important to locate the door lock assembly on your particular model. For most models, the door lock assembly is located at the top-right of the washer’s control panel. On some very old models, you may need to unscrew and remove a panel in order to access the door lock assembly.

Once you have identified and located the door lock assembly, you can proceed with bypassing it. Depending on your washer’s model and age, there will be several different ways that you can bypass its door lock. The recommended method for each model is given below.

For newer Beko washing machines (manufactured after 2016), follow these steps:
1. Unplug the machine from its power source
2. Remove any screws or covers that are securing the door latch or covering its internal workings
3. Locate and unplug both connectors from their port in the upper right corner of the control panel
4. Reattach them by plugging them into their corresponding port on the bottom left corner of the control panel
5. Replace any screws or covers you removed earlier
6. Reconnect power source and begin washing!

Disconnect the wiring harness

To begin the process of bypassing the door lock on a Beko washing machine, disconnect the wiring harness from the electronic control board. The electronic control board is located behind the control panel of your washer and has a few sets of wires running to it. Take care to identify the correct wiring harness before proceeding to disconnect it – this will typically be marked with a recognizable symbol. Once disconnected, unscrew and remove the control board. If you encounter any difficulty while accessing or handling the electronic control board, please refer to your manufacturer’s instructions for further details and guidance.

Remove the door lock assembly

To begin the process, you will need to locate and remove the door lock assembly on your Beko washing machine. Start by unplugging the power cord from the mains socket and then open the washer’s lid. On either side of the door near its top edge, you will find two small Phillips-head screws that hold the door lock assembly in place. Use a Phillips-head screwdriver to remove these screws and set them aside for later use.

Once you have removed these screws, grasp the door lock assembly from its top edge and pull it away from the machine’s frame. This should pull the whole assembly out in one swift motion. Be careful not to touch any of its sensitive internal components as doing so could cause serious damage to your unit. Take a few moments to familiarize yourself with how each part connects before proceeding so that you can reassemble your door lock properly later on.

Conclusion

Bypassing the door lock on a BEKO washing machine is a straightforward process. Even though it takes some technical know-how, all required tools and supplies should be readily available from your local hardware or electronics shops. Additionally, these instructions are also applicable to other popular brands of washers with minor variations.

To summarize, the essential steps are: check the power source; remove the casing; locate and deactivate the door lock; clean out any dirt around the terminal; return to casing back properly and turn on power supply. Once done, you can successfully bypass the door lock on your Beko Washing Machine.
