What is the fault of error E1 Beko affecting your washing machine?

If you have a Beko brand washing machine, you may encounter the error code E1 on the screen at some point. This code indicates that there may be a problem with the NTC sensor, which is responsible for measuring the water temperature.

This said sensor is connected to the thermistor, which is a resistor that heats the water to a temperature that is suitable for your clothes and corresponds to the wash cycle.

When the NTC sensor fails, the washing machine cannot properly regulate the water temperature and may cause damage to the appliance or clothing. It is important to know how to identify and address this issue as soon as possible, otherwise, you could risk damaging your delicate garments during washing.

In this article, we will attempt to explain what this error code means, as well as its possible causes and solutions. Among the possible causes that can lead to this failure and that we should check are the following:

  • Faulty or damaged NTC sensor
  • Loose, broken, or short-circuited thermistor wiring
  • Dirt or sulfation on the NTC sensor or thermistor
  • Electrical overload or a failure in the washing machine's motherboard

How to fix the error E1 on Beko washing machine?

This E1 error code in Beko washing machines may have a solution, and that's why we're providing you with a series of tips and advice that you can apply to try to fix this issue yourself. So, take note of each of them and follow the steps closely:

  1. Try resetting the washer: First and foremost, let's try this procedure first. Sometimes, the E1 error code can be a one-time glitch that can be resolved by simply resetting the washing machine. Turn off your washer and disconnect it from the electrical outlet for a few minutes, then reconnect it. Now, check if the E1 error code disappears, and if the washer functions correctly.
  2. Check the NTC sensor: If the problem persists, you'll need to check the condition of the NTC sensor. To do this, remove the back panel of the washer and locate this sensor (it's usually located near the drum or the heating element). Check if the NTC sensor is clean, dry, and properly connected to the thermistor. If you see that it's dirty, clean it with an electronic cleaner. If you see that it's damaged, you'll need to replace it with a new one.
  3. Inspect the thermistor wiring: If the NTC sensor is fine, you should inspect the thermistor wiring. To do this, follow the wires that come out of the NTC sensor to reach the thermistor (This component is generally located at the bottom of the washer). Check if the wires are securely attached to the thermistor and if there are no signs of breakage or short-circuiting. If you find that the wires are loose, secure them properly to the thermistor. If you find that the wires are broken, burnt, or scorched, then you'll need to replace them with new ones.
  4. Check for electrical overload: You should inspect the electrical connection of your washer because sometimes an electrical surge can damage its internal components. If you have knowledge in electronics, then use a multimeter to thoroughly check the internal connections on the PCB board of your washer as well as the external connections supplying electricity to your appliance.
  5. Repeat all the previous steps only if the problem persists: If, after checking the NTC sensor and thermistor wiring, the E1 error code continues to appear on your washer, then it wouldn't hurt to perform a second check. Review everything thoroughly, ensuring that no detail has been overlooked. Sometimes, there can be more than one cause for this problem, and it's necessary to examine everything in-depth.
  6. Seek Beko technical support to resolve the issue: If you've reached this point, then you probably haven't been able to find a solution to this problem. Perhaps it's time to call in the experts to help you resolve this issue. And who better than the Beko technical service team? Request a visit from a specialized technician to inspect your washer and provide better guidance in finding a prompt and effective solution to this fault.

In summary, everything we've described above are steps explained in great detail for fixing this issue with your washer. However, here's a much more simplified summary to resolve the E1 error code on Beko washers:

  • First, try resetting the washer.
  • Check the NTC sensor and clean or replace it if necessary.
  • Inspect the thermistor wiring and secure or replace it if necessary.
  • Check for electrical overload both internally and externally on your washer.
  • Repeat all the previous steps if the problem persists.
  • Seek assistance from Beko technical support to resolve the problem.

As we've mentioned throughout the article, it's highly likely that your Beko washer has an issue with the NTC sensor or the communication between this component and the thermistor. We hope we've been of help in solving this problem. Goodbye for now!
