Pump filter warning
When the appliance is in use and depending
on the programme selected there can be hot
water in the filter. Never remove the filter
during a wash cycle, always wait until the
appliance has finished the cycle, and is empty.
When replacing the filter, ensure it is securely
retightened so as to stop leaks and young
children being able to remove it.
To prevent any leakage, check the hoses
every two years. If the machine is placed in
cold ambient temperatures, the water
remaining inside the pump and hoses should
be drained to prevent freezing, empty the
water intake hoses by disconnecting from taps.
Do not leave any metal objects (pins, needles,
etc.) inside the drum. These objects may cause
rust on the drum surface and stain clothing.
Do not clean the drum with abrasive materials.
Cleaning the pump filter
Hot water danger! Always ensure that the
drum is completely empty. Be careful while
taking out the filter!
Switch off the appliance. Open the filter
cover by pulling at the holder as shown.
Open the filter as shown turning the cap
anti-clockwise, drain the water. If there are any
foreign parts inside the filter, take them out
and clean the filter before replacing it. Then,
place the filter while turning it clockwise. When
securely tightened, close the filter cover.

WMA 510 S
WMA 510 W
You can locate the washing machine
anywhere (except bathrooms, showers and
away from rain, damp places and water) as
long as you have a cold water supply, drainage
and electrical connection alongside.
Ensure there is clearance each side of the
machine to allow slight side ways movement
during washing and spin drying.
Never place your machine on a carpet. This
prevents air circulation. The electrical
components of the machine may overheat and
may cause damage.
Please ensure the power, water supplies
and waste are suitable, if in doubt, consult a
qualified plumber or electrician.
Different methods of floor construction can
result in an increase in vibration/noise during
spin modes.
If these symptoms are experienced please
ensure firstly that all four feet are in firm contact
with the floor to minimise any out of balance
vibration which may be generated.
Additional information is available by
In addition to this, washing machines should
not be installed on carpet, foam backed
laminate, or parquet flooring where the nature
of these types of flooring can also contribute
to the inefficient operation of the washing
machine on the spin cycle.
Water inlet connection
Your machine comes with cold water
connection only.
Connect the cold water using the hose with
blue printing or colour.
Cold water supply
For proper operation, the pressure of cold
water should be between 1 and 10 bars. (1
bar corresponds to more
than 8 litres per minute
flow rate with a fully open
To prevent water leaks,
sealing washers are
supplied with the water inlet hose inside the
machine. Place these on the hose end and
tighten both ends fully.
In order to prevent any water leakage and
damage, turn off the water tap when not in
use. Connect the right angled end of the hose
to the machine water inlet.
The washing machine must only be
connected with the new hose provided and
old hoses must not be reused.
Drain hose
The drain hose should be placed and secured
either at the side of the sink A, directly to the
drain B or directly to the waste water
inlet C.
The hose should not be bent.
Using method A, the drain hose should be
secured with the elbow so that it can not
be dislodged.
The waste pipe must only be connected
into the foul drains and not surface water
drainage system.
The hose should be placed between 20 and
80cm from the floor level and must not be
extended otherwise the machine may not
empty the waste water.
The minimum diameter of any external pipe
must be 32 mm.
Electrical requirements
Before you insert the plug into the wall
socket make sure that the voltage and the
frequency shown in the rating label corresponds
to your electricity supply.
We recommend that this appliance be
connected to the mains supply via a suitable
switched and fused socket in a readily accessible
Should the mains lead of the appliance
become damaged or need replacing at any
time, it must be replaced by a special purpose
made mains lead which can only be obtained
from a Beko Authorised Service Agent.
This appliance must be earthed
If the fitted moulded plug is not suitable for
your socket, then the plug should be cut off
and an appropriate plug fitted.
The moulded plug on this appliance
incorporates a 13A fuse. Should the fuse need
to be replaced an ASTA approved BS1362 fuse
of the same rating must be used. Do not forget
to refit the fuse cover. In the event of losing
the fuse cover, the plug must not be used until
a replacement fuse cover has been fitted.
Colour of the replacement fuse cover must be
the same colour as that visible on the pin face
of the plug. Fuse covers are available from any
good electrical store.
In order to avoid hazards, damaged supply
cord should be replaced by the manufacturer,
its service agent or similarly qualified people.
Fitting a different plug
As the colours of the wires in the mains
lead of this appliance may not correspond with
the coloured markings identifying the terminals
on your plug, proceed as follows:
Connect the green - yellow or green (earth)
wire to the terminal in the plug marked ‘E’
or with the symbol or coloured green
and yellow or green.
Connect the blue (neutral) wire to the
terminal in the plug marked ‘N’ or coloured
Connect the brown (live) wire to the terminal
in the plug marked ‘L’ or coloured red.
With the alternative plugs a 13A fuse must
be fitted either in the plug or adaptor or in the
main fuse box. If in doubt contact a qualified
Green and yellow
or green
Make sure that you have an earthed power
outlet socket rated at 13 amps (minimum).
If you use your machine as built-in, the
socket must be reachable after installation, or
a separate switch (which can disconnect the
two poles) must be used in the installation.

Detergent dispenser
It is necessary to remove the detergent
dispenser drawer from time to time to clean
away residue and ensure correct operation.
To remove
Pull out the drawer and press down on the
coloured insert to release it fully from its
housing. Wash the drawer in warm water to
remove detergent and softener residue and
before replacing wipe it dry.
The syphon (coloured insert in the dispenser)
must be cleaned. Remove the dispenser drawer
and lift out the syphon and wash in warm
water to remove any softener residue. Refit
ensuring that the syphon is correctly fitted
before use.
Maintenance wash
If you regularly use low temperature
programs, for example 40˚C, certain detergents
cause build up of greasy deposits over time.
We recommend a hot maintenance wash once
every 6 months to clear such accumulation of
Simply run the wash programme “Cotton
90” without laundry using the usual amount
of detergent.
Water intake filter
At the end of the water intake connection
and water inlet hose-tap side there are filters.
These filters prevent any dirt and objects
passing into the machine. It is advisable that
these filters should be cleaned every 30-40
washes. To clean these filters, first turn the tap
off. Then, disconnect the hose and clean the
filter with a thin brush. If the filter is very dirty,
you may clean it by pulling out with pliers. To
clean the filter at the tap side of the hose, pull
it out by hand and clean the filter under tap
water. Ensure that the sealing rings are in place
before reassembly.
You turned the machine on, but the indicator
light is not lit

Removing transport safety bolts
The transport safety bolts must be removed
before any operation of the machine.
Turn the bolt heads C anti-clockwise until
the bolt can be partially withdrawn.
Remove them and the rubber bushes by
pulling outwards. An up/down action and
a small squirt of washing up liquid will ease
Plastic plugs, supplied inside the protective
bag, designated P, should be placed in the
safety bolt holes as shown.
Attention! Keep the safety bolts for future
transportation and reinstate them before
transporting your machine. Never transport
your machine without the transport bolts in
position. Any resultant damage is not covered
by the warranty.
Follow the manufacturer’s recommended
amount of detergent given on the packaging.
Adjust the amount according to the dirt
level, the amount of fabric and the softness of
the water. For example, if a small amount of
clothing is washed, put in half the amount of
detergent normally required.
Do not fill the fabric softener above the max
mark as any excess amount will mix into
the wash water and you will have to re-fill
the compartment.
