How to Drain a Beko Dishwasher

Updated February 21, 2017

Beko appliances are primarily aimed at the European and UK marketplace. Its line of dishwashers features both full-sized and slim models. As with other dishwashers, Beko models need somewhere to drain their water when they have finished washing the dishes inside. You can drain a Beko dishwasher by hooking up the drain hose to the nearest drain inlet, usually a sink tailpiece or sewer inlet pipe.

Unplug the Beko dishwasher or turn off the electricity for the dishwasher at the main circuit breaker.

Plan the route for the Beko hose to the drain inlet. If the hose needs to be run through cabinets, drill an appropriate size hole with a power drill and spade bit. Sand down the edges with sandpaper to avoid damaging the hose.

String the Beko dishwasher hose through any holes as needed over to the drain inlet.

Connect the outlet at the end of the hose to the inlet on the tailpiece. Secure with a clamp.

Hang the gooseneck part of the Beko drain hose over the drain inlet, if this is the type of hose your machine is equipped with. Secure with a plastic tie.

Elevate the middle portion of the dishwasher hose so that it is higher than both the Beko outlet and the drain inlet. Secure the hose in place along a wall or the top of a cabinet with a hose clamp.

Restore power to the Beko dishwasher.
