How to stop water siphonage from your washing machine

If your Beko washing machine is having problems removing or retaining water from the drum, you should check that the drain pipe is correctly set up as if not this can lead to water siphonage. Here’s how to check your drain pipe:

  1. Locate your washing machine’s drain pipe and the standpipe the waste water flows into. Please note washing machines are heavy, be careful when lifting and moving. We strongly recommend you have someone assist you when lifting, tilting and moving your washing machine.
  2. Make sure that the drain hose has not been inserted too far into the waste pipe. The maximum should be 15cm inserted, otherwise a vacuum may form which can cause siphonage.
  3. The drain hose should be connected to the standpipe at the correct height for it to work properly. Ensure the highest point of the water drain hose is a minimum of 40 cm and a maximum height of 100 cm from the floor.
