20 Most Recent Asko 24 in. 1895 Built-in Dishwasher Questions & Answers

The lights flashing is telling that there is a fault in the dishwasher.
I am assuming you have emptied the dishwasher after the drain cycle failed to work due to the pipe block.
You will have to make a fresh start. Empty the dishwasher, turn the power mains switch off and on to reset the dishwasher.
Start a new cycle and see if flashing lights stop flashing. If still same problem you will have to note which light(s) are flashing and send a post on this page. There is a chance the impeller in the drain pump may have sufferred some damage due to drain block depending on how long the motor operated before you found the problem with the drain.

Welcome to FixYa.

The "F2" for Asko dishwashers indicates either the unit is overfilling, or the valve itself has failed.

The problem is likely the fill valve, based on your description... "It has been flashing an F2 error code and the timer starts at 65 then switches to "1" which stays on during the cycle. Now it will run for about a minute then stops completely".

Depending on the series of dishwasher you have, determined by serial number ( I don`t mean the model... I got it is a 1895 ) because those Asko machines had a revision to their valves moving from a dual solenoid to a single, the single substituting all dual coil valve units.



The original Asko number would be # 8057508 and available at most brick & mortar parts vendors or on- line places such as "repairclinic.com".

** turn off the breaker at the service panel before servicing the unit...safety first**

To check the valve will require the removal of the lower panel/kick plate or also referred to as a toe panel, and with the aid of an ohm meter and at least one wire removed from each/the coil, measure the ohm value of the coil.

The valve will be on your right...


It should not read infinite, but rather 0 to 93Kohms.

That should move you forward and hopefully solve the problem. Let me know if anything is not clear or if you require further assistance.

Thank you for choosing FixYa and good luck.

** If you have any reservation or are not completely confident servicing this unit please call in an authorized Asko technician **

These can be very difficult to service for one inexperienced, I see so-called pros mess them up all too often.

I presume by 'damp air' you mean steam.
If the steam is coming out from under the loading door, you may need to replace the door seal.
If the steam is coming from the lower bottom front panel (floor level) the dishwasher may have a leaking hose on the circulating pump or water inlet valve. The lower front panel should be removed to allow inspection of hoses/valves etc. (the panel comes off easily after removal of a couple of screws).

the most important thing is to screw it to the bench,there are four screw points two at the top and two on the side near the top if you look you will see the tags where they go.as far as the hoses go just make sure the drain hose is up high and not laying on the floor.hope this helps.if connecting to hot water it must be below 60 degrees.and you probably wont need a pressure limitin valve fitted to the tap.

First make sure your door switch is making proper contact.If not replace it. If it checks out ok than your main control board is bad.

I have seen this problem before and there are only 2 things you can do about it. 1: take the outer panel off the door to gain acess to the wiring and unplug the fan (it will have a slight negative effect on the drying, but not too much) or 2: replace the control board. The part is about $350-$450 (depending on which board it takes) and that doesn't even include the labor if you cant do it yourself. The only place I know of to get parts for these in the U.S. is american appliance 303 777 0993. If the unit is less than 5 years old, the board is still covered under a parts warranty. Look at your serial nuber on the inner edge of the door to determine when it was built. The first two digit are the year it was made ( so an 01 would be 2001 etc) and the second two digits are the week (so 45 would be the 45th week of the year) HOpe this helps!

water in base remove dishwasher and tilt to side and it will restart,but you may have a leak,also check the inlet valve may not be closing fully.hope this helps.

Remover the lower front panel, and from there you should reach the element nut. Good luck

Asko 24 in. 1895... | Answered on Feb 18, 2008

Most likely the main switch is bad.
