Product Reviews

"Beko DW450 Dishwasher Problem / Fault"

Pros: Easy to use

"There is not much choice on the market for slimline built-in dishwashers under £400, so this one is an obvious choice. It is a little bit noisier than average, but not unbearable.

I found that after re-positioning the upper basket to accommodate larger plates, the normal wash cycle was not as effective, but this was easy to fix - see item 2 below.

General problems.

1. Cutlery tray is not a good fit in the bottom basket and topples over - this can be fixed with a couple of cable ties.

2. If you have large plates for the bottom basket, you will need to move the top tray to the upper position, but part of the wirework fouls the grey plastic catch, which prevents the upper spray bar pipework to seal correctly, so it doesn't work - bend the offending wirework side to side until it breaks away, and bend it out of the way, Coat exposed metal with nail varnish to prevent rust.

3. If the machine fails to fill or complete a programme, but sounds as if it is doing something, this is probably due to a small amount of water leaking into the base, which triggers a water detector or float switch, causing the drain pump to run continuously - make sure the machine is disconnected from the power supply, remove the door (if built-in) and remove the plinth and cover plate at the bottom-front (4 screws) and soak up as much water as possible using cloth teatowels or similar (not paper towels or tissue!). If possible, tilt the top of the machine forward while doing this and finish off with a hair dryer or fan heater before replacing covers and doors.

This is due to a built-in 'Flood Prevention' system and can happen if you accidentally open the door while there is still water inside or if the waste outlet is blocked - but there is no indication that this has been triggered. The drain pump operates constantly even though it has no means of removing water from inside the base.

4. At the end of the cycle, there is a short, quiet single beep. If you are not standing next to the machine at the time, you won't hear it! It wouldn't be difficult for the manufacturer to make this a bit louder and to beep once every minute or so until the door is opened. It should even be possible to make it a constant or more-frequent beep if the flood prevention circuitry has been activated. This would be especially useful for built-in machines where a leak under the machine might not be obvious until some serious damage has been done.

5. I found that the supplied template for mounting the appliance door was about 5mm out, making the door too low. The plastic mounting strips are fiddly to use and it is almost impossible to remove the door again without breaking them. It would have been better if the manufacturer had simply provided keyhole shaped slots in the machine door, and a few pan-head screws to attach your own door! Also, the 4 x screws for fixing the door from the inside, have a weird cross-head fitting that doesn't fit any screwdriver that I had in my toolbox, plus they are made of a soft metal which get chewed-up easily. I replaced mine with 4 x 40mm No.4 stainless screws from the local DIY shop."

"Very easy to fit, economy wash cycle very quick but does a good job and this machine is so quiet, with an open plan layout we had felt we would need to use the machine overnight but you can hardly hear it operating, excellent!"

"what you have to watch out for is overall depth of machine. It leaves no room at all for plugs cables etc if you want it to fit alongside standard kitchen units"

"Typical"

"Have a Beko DW450 for 18 months now and it is starting to have problems. It stopped working on Christmas day. Took the front plate of and found it has a leak around the filter plate. Dried the base plate out and the machine started to work again but can see the water is still dripping rather rapidly. Not the sort of problem I would accept after just 18 months of service."

"Brilliant purchase"

Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, Good build quality, Quiet, looks good

Cons: no delay timer

"this is so quiet which is excellent for when putting on at night as dont want it waking my daughter up. Capacity is good - however would have been even more ideal if it had a delayed timer on it - but not much of an issue.

Easy to use - very straight forward.

As the first time I have had a dishwasher I think it is an excellent one to start with. and brilliant for the small space I had."

"Great purchase"

Pros: Quiet, Easy to use, Good build quality, Value for money

"We bought this dishwasher after having read a few reviews and are so pleased with it. Its quiet & does a really good cleaning job. If I had to pick any faults with it they would be that the bleep noise to signal it has finished can only be heard if you are in the kitchen and the quickwash cycle doesn't always get everything clean - a couple of items have had to go back in a 2nd time - I think this is only really for dishes that have just been used, i.e. no dried on food, but this is being really picky. I use the economy cycle and everything comes out spotless."

Beko DW451

Fantastic for kitchens where space is at a premium, the Beko DW451 is just 45cm wide – that’s loads slimmer than standard models. You’ll be able to fit 10 place settings in at once, which is a good size for a couple or a 3 person home. Since this models is integrated, it’s made for you to fit your choice of cupboard door to it.

When it comes to cycles, this model is kitted out with a select few that will really come in useful. The Quick and Clean wash is unique to Beko and it’ll get a full load washed in just 58 minutes; that nearly twice as faster as normal cycles. It’s fantastic for saving time without sacrificing how well your dishes are cleaned.

There’s also an intensive wash which gets your wash water much hotter than normal to cut through the really stubborn, baked on food. At 70°C it’s quick to strip away grease and burnt bits from sticky baking trays, so you won’t have to spend ages scrubbing them yourself.

This Beko even helps you save money too, as the eco wash uses much less electricity than normal cycles. It uses short bursts of energy over a slightly longer wash to bring your costs right down. Your dishes come out just as clean as in normal cycles, but at a fraction of the price. You can even run it overnight to make the most of cheaper electricity rates. You won’t have to worry about it disturbing your sleep, as it runs at just 49dB – that’s so quiet you’ll barely notice it’s on.
