Hopeless instructions

Pros: Features

Cons: Noisy, Poor instructions

"Now we have finally got this machine working we are happy with its performance. Dishes clean. Utensil tray better in middle, rather than a corner, or can leave food residue. Biggest problem are the instructions for fitting which are hopeless (pictures only, no explanations) and the manual which wasn't much better. First it advised to change water softness according to test strip. Manual in black and white, strip before use 5 x dark green squares. After testing water, still 5 x green squares. Is this 5 black squares = very hard or no change = very soft. We have soft water so do not believe it. Phoned help line and they were no help. Said if squares visible, must be hard water. But squares were visible before we dippedit in water. Suggested we email Beko. Additionally manual states to change water softness electronically on timer and also manually using Regeneration Adjustment switch. Managed to electronic bit but couldn't budge the switch. Phoned Beko. Apparently this is an error and we should ignore the bit about changing the Regeneration Adjustment switch. What a waste of my time. Not as quiet as we were led to believe. The motor isn't the noisy bit, its the water filling and draining that makes the most noise."

"Not the best instructions I have ever read. The drawings were a waist of time. A bit of common sense prevailed but only after some shouting. The result is a good reliable dishwasher it just a shame it takes a while to get there."

"I am really pleased with this new dishwasher. it is really quiet and washes everything really well. It has a good capacity and drop down shelves so that small items can be placed on them as well as side flaps so that you can put in baking trays without hindering the water flow.

It was easy to fairly fit, just struggled a little with fixing our kitchen door to the front.

I would definitely recommend this machine as it seems sturdy and was good value for money."

Beko dishwasher

Pros: Quiet, Value for money

Cons: Complicated

"Good machine, especially like the mechanism for adjusting the rear feet from the front of the machine!

Fitting the insulation is fiddly & makes the machine a little larger than expected."

Good unit

Pros: Good build quality, Value for money

"Internally it is well built and has great features.

Externally it is good but the plastic feet are really rubbish and hard to adjust at the back. To adjust the back you have to turn the plastic gearing bit which looks easy to snap.

Aside the small issue of setting it up its excellent and a good unit,
