Open the door of your Beko dishwasher and lower it as far as it will go. Close the dishwasher door firmly and listen to ensure that you hear the door latch engage. Note that if the latch fails to engage properly you will be unable to select or start a new dishwashing cycle. Troubleshoot or replace faulty door latches to unlock the electronic control panel.
Locate the "Start/Stop" button on the dishwasher control panel. Press and hold the "Start/Stop" button for three seconds to cancel the current dishwashing cycle.
Hold down the "Start/Stop" button for five to seven seconds to reset your dishwasher.

- You can also reset your Beko dishwasher from the main electrical service panel in your home; this panel is usually located in the basement, laundry room or garage. Move the circuit breaker switch that supplies electricity to your dishwasher into the "Off" position. Wait five minutes to allow the dishwasher to reset before flipping the switch back to "On" position.
- If your Beko dishwasher requires frequent resets, an underlying mechanical issue may be to blame. Contact Beko customer support for troubleshooting advice or to schedule an appointment for service.
