I checked the pics. My comments
1. Bean plants look lanky and tall. Clearly they are not getting the sunlight they need.
2. Beans should not be transplanted but direct seeded.

Do the following
1. move the seedling tray to a bright spot.
2. reduce the watering and this makes the media light. now carefully lift the bean seedlings and move it to a bigger pot and keep your fingers crossed that they pickup.

also parallely sow bean seeds directly in a pot. spaced at 6-8 inches bettween plants. a 12inch dia pot can have upto 4-5 plants
