In this post, we will walk you through how to resolve your Beko refrigerator dispenser problems. With the way we have simplified the processes, you do not need to have years of experience before you can troubleshoot and repair your Beko refrigerator dispenser.
Beko Refrigerator Water Dispenser Not Working – How to Fix
If your Beko refrigerator water dispenser is not working, inspect the following parts and replace the defective ones you find.
1. Water Tube
When the water supply tube of your refrigerator gets frozen, air does not flow through it. Consequently, the refrigerator water dispenser will stop working.
To know if you are dealing with a frozen water tube, turn off your refrigerator and detach the water tube from the bottom of the refrigerator door. Use a leaf blower to blow air through the water tube and see if the air circulates. If air does not circulate, you are dealing with a frozen water tube that needs to be thawed.
To prevent the water tube from freezing up again or becoming too warm, ensure you keep the freezer temperature at a range of 0 to 10 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Water Inlet Valve
A defective water inlet valve could be responsible for your dispenser problems. It could also be that the water pressure is not sufficient to open the inlet valve. The water inlet valve cannot open unless the water pressure is up to 20 psi.
Use a pressure relief valve or a water pressure regulator to check the water pressure. If the water pressure is up to the recommended level, test the water inlet valve for continuity. Get a new water inlet valve if the current one does not have continuity.
3. Dispenser Switch
Your Beko refrigerator dispenser comes with dispenser switches that help to transmit voltage to the dispenser. If these switches break down, your dispenser will stop functioning.
Conduct a quick continuity test using a multimeter. If the test reading shows that the dispenser switch lacks continuity, opt for a new one.
4. Door Switch
The function of the door switch is to switch off the water dispenser when you open the refrigerator door. The dispenser will not switch on if the door switch is faulty.
You can conduct a continuity test to know if the door switch is broken and needs replacement.
5. Water Filter
The water filter ensures your drinking water is free from dirt and contaminants. It sieves out tiny particles that would have found their way into your glass, causing you health issues.
Over time, the dirt and tiny particles clog the water filter, and water is unable to pass through its pores. Detach the water filter and check if it is clogged. If the filter is clogged, get a new one.
Also, refrigerator manufacturers recommend replacing your water filter at least every six months to maintain the quality of your drinking water and ensure adequate water flow.
6. Dispenser Control Board
The dispenser control board facilitates the operation of other components of your refrigerator dispenser. If the control board is faulty, most components of the refrigerator dispenser will be faulty as well.
Troubleshoot the dispenser control board and replace it if you discover that it is responsible for the refrigerator problems.
How to Clean Beko Refrigerator Water Dispenser
You need to clean your refrigerator dispenser for it to serve you for a considerable length of time and ensure adequate quality of your drinking water.
First, clean your Beko refrigerator water dispenser, turn off your refrigerator, and then detach the white cover of the water tank. This gives you access to the interior of the dispenser.
You can use water and detergent to remove mild stains from the dispenser. But then, to get rid of stubborn dirt and germs, you will need distilled vinegar.
Thoroughly clean the water tank and the water tube using a small brush. After washing, discard the now dirty water and use a bowl of fresh water to dislodge the soap and vinegar residue.
Reattach the water tank and the water tube to their original position and plug back the power cord to its wall outlet. Check out the video below to learn more about cleaning Beko refrigerators…
Beko Refrigerator Water Dispenser Leaking – What to Do
If your Beko refrigerator dispenser is leaking, check if any of the following components is faulty and replace it accordingly:
1. Water Filter
Check if the water filter head is broken or if the seal is torn. If the seal is torn or the head is broken, replace it. Also, examine the water filter housing for cracks, and replace it if you discover any.
If you do not properly connect your water filter to the filter housing, the dispenser will start leaking. Uninstall the water filter and reinstall it properly.
2. Water Inlet Valve
Water is supplied to the dispenser via the water inlet valve. If the water inlet valve breaks or is not installed correctly, water will start leaking from it. Properly connect the water inlet valve if that is the cause of the leak. If the water inlet valve is broken, get a new one.
3. Water Tank Assembly
There might be tiny holes in the water tank, which you might not see at first glance. Carefully inspect every corner of the water tank to see if it is the source of the leak.
If you discover a crack in the water tank, replace it. Note that using glue to repair the cracked water tank will only last for a few days.
4. Drip Tray
The drip tray collects that spills over from the dispenser. Over time, the drip tray will become full and no longer able to hold water. When that happens, water will spill all over your floor. You simply have to empty the drip tray, and the problem will be over.

Beko Refrigerator Ice Dispenser Removal Procedure
An ice dispenser that is not working is taking up space that could have been used for keeping ice trays. The ice dispenser is not a permanent component of your Beko refrigerator, so you can remove it whenever you do not have use for it.
To remove the ice dispenser from your refrigerator, unplug the refrigerator from its power source and pull the refrigerator away from the wall. This gives you access to the water inlet valve and the water line.
Shut off the water inlet valve by turning it in a clockwise direction. Use a plier to remove the nut securing the water inlet valve and the water line together. Place a bowl at the back of the refrigerator and let the water from the water line flow into the bowl.
After that, coil the water line and use duct tape to hold the water line to the back of your refrigerator. If there is any foodstuff on the shelf of the freezer, move it to the bottom of the ice maker.
At this point, turn off the ice dispenser by either raising its wire arm or toggling the power switch to the “OFF” position. After that, bring out the ice bucket from the bottom of the freezer to give you access to the body of the ice dispenser.
At each corner of the ice dispenser, you will see two 1/4-inch hex-head bolts fastening the freezer to the ice dispenser on top of the ice tray. Remove the bolts using a 1/4-inch nut-driver and lift the ice dispenser to detach the brackets from the two bolts.
After that, you will have access to the wiring harness that connects the refrigerator’s electrical components to the ice dispenser wires. On each end of the wiring harness, press down the locking tabs to lift the tabs so you can pull out the wiring harness.
Finally, secure the wiring harness to the wall of the freezer with a duct tape and plug the refrigerator back into its power source. Move the refrigerator to the original position, and you are good to go!
Beko Refrigerator Water Dispenser Removal Procedure
You have to remove the water dispenser from the refrigerator before you can clean it. To remove the water dispenser, empty the water tank and also empty the shelf above it.
After that, detach the water funnel installed on the shelf, just on top of the water tank. Push the shelf upward to detach it and do the same thing to remove the refrigerator water dispenser.
After removing the water dispenser, remove the tiny rubber ring on the nozzle and clean it.
Once you through with cleaning the water dispenser, you have to reinstall it. Reinstalling the water dispenser is simply doing the reverse of uninstalling the dispenser.
To begin with, reattach the plastic cover of the water tank and mount it in its original position. Also, reconnect the rubber ring to its original position and reinstall the water funnel.
Finally, refill the water dispenser and plug the refrigerator power cord in its power supply, and you are good to go!
