Beko Tumble Dryer Reset Button (Location + Instructions)

Beko advertises its appliances—including its tumble dryers—to individuals and families who care about minimizing energy consumption and maximizing sustainability.

But if your appliance starts under- or overheating, it can undermine your energy savings. Fortunately, a simple thermal assembly reset may be all you need.

Like many other dryers, Beko dryers have a small red reset button that you can access from the back of the dryer. In Beko dryers, you can find it on the thermostat.

In this post, you’ll get familiar with the location of reset buttons in Beko dryers and how to troubleshoot your dryer when this reset button doesn’t work.

Where to Find the Beko Tumble Dryer Reset Button

Searching up the reset button location may lead you on a frustrating search through irrelevant answers. Even Beko resources on the topic can be scarce. After all, you want to know where the reset button is, not how to reset using the start/stop or cancel button.

You can find the reset button on the dryer’s thermostat. The thermostat is located on top of the heating assembly, as it connects to the heating assembly to regulate the dryer’s temperature.

In order to use the button, you’ll need to grab a screwdriver and remove some panels.

How to Access the Beko Dryer Reset Button

Like other dryers, you’ll need to unscrew and remove the back panel to reach the thermostat and reset button.

In a Beko tumble dryer, you can find the thermostat (and the reset button) toward the top middle of the dryer. It will be on top of the heating assembly, which looks like a silver box with thick wires going to and from it.

Once you find the thermostat and button, you should be able to press it to perform a reset. 

Always unplug the appliance before digging around in its internal machinery. Trying to fix a dryer that’s still plugged in can lead to electrocution.

Why Use the Reset Button?

On many dryer control panels—including various Beko tumble dryer control panels—you can press or hold the start, stop, and/or pause buttons to perform a program reset. This type of reset is useful when you decide to run a different type of dryer cycle or when the control panel is glitching.

But if you’re having a problem with your dryer over- or underheating, a control panel reset may not do the trick. This is where the thermostat’s reset button comes in.

Using the reset button on the thermostat can sometimes fix malfunctions in the heating assembly that can cause a dryer to under- or overheat.

Resets are a lot like restarting computers and can be a cheap first line of defense, saving you from potentially unnecessary labor and replacement part costs.

What About a Beko Condenser Tumble Dryer?

The point of a dryer is to dry clothes—that means removing excess moisture using heat.

You may be used to clothes dryers that have a crinkly, silver pipe protruding from the back. These types of dryers are vented dryers that rely on air flow to remove moisture from clothing and the appliance.

Condenser dryers, on the other hand, typically send the moisture to a separate container where it condenses into water. Once the container fills up, you have to empty it.

While vented dryers are generally cheaper and more efficient, condenser dryers can be more convenient for homeowners.

Regardless of which type of dryer you have, it’s vital to know how to reset it when something goes awry. 

Where to Find the Beko Condenser Dryer Reset Button

Like vented Beko dryers, this brand’s condenser dryers also have a reset button you can use when these household appliances malfunction.

You can find this button in the same place as you would find the reset button on a vented Beko dryer. Look for a silver heater assembly box and find the thermostat on top of the box. The button will be on the thermostat.

You can access this button the same way, too: Just unplug the dryer and unscrew the rear access panel.

Why Is My Beko Tumble Dryer Reset Button Not Working?

The reset button only works if the dryer heating assembly is malfunctioning due to a programming or other glitch.

The reset button won’t work if the heater assembly—which includes the thermostat and heating element—is mechanically faulty or if the vents on a vented dryer are too clogged to allow the machine to cool down.

For instance, no number of reset attempts will solve shorted connections within components or faulty wires between components. Those components must first be fixed or replaced.

And if there’s a mountain of dust and debris stuck in the vents of a vented dryer, there won’t be sufficient air flow to cool down the machine. If the appliance can’t cool down, the thermostat is just doing its job by not letting the dryer continue to heat up, as this would present a fire risk.

Think of it like this: You can restart your laptop, but that won’t do much if the connections within the motherboard are fried. In that case, you’re attempting a program-based solution to a physical defect. It just isn’t going to work.

It’s likely not the button itself that’s faulty, but the component you’re trying to reset. You can’t reset a mechanical thermostat failure, for example.

If it’s a defective component, such as a heater element or thermal fuse, replace that component first and attempt another reset. If that fails, it may be time to contact a repair technician to perform a reset for you and potentially fix the button.

Conclusion

Performing a reset of your Beko dryer’s heating components is fairly simple, whether it’s a vented or condenser version.

Just grab a screwdriver, take off the rear panel, and find the heating assembly toward the top of the back of the dryer. It will look like a silver box. On top of this assembly, you’ll find the small red reset button.

This button is useful for resetting the heating components of a dryer that doesn’t heat properly. If attempting a reset doesn’t work, be sure to clean out any vents and verify the integrity of the components themselves. But don’t hesitate to call in a technician if you need further guidance.
