Question about Asko Dishwashers
SOURCE: Asko 3350 Dishwasher
The "F7" code means that the drain is blocked. To remove items from the drain: 1.Turn power to unit off. 2. Remove the "Coarse Filter" by squeezing the tabs together and lifting out. 3. Remove the "Fine Filter" and "Main Filter" by removing the screws around the filters and lifting them out. 4.Remove the small black adapter piece and check the sump area for debris. 5.Wash the filters out gently with hot, soapy water. DO NOT RUN THE UNIT WITHOUT THE FILTERS IN PLACE! 6.Replace the black adapter piece to its original position FIRST (Important!). 7.Replace the filters in reverse order of removal and turn the unit back on. The error code should reset and work normally. *In areas with hard-water, the filters should be removed every 8-12 months and submerged in a chemical solution (CLR or LimeAway) to remove mineral deposits. Hope this helps...

Same issue with mine... Tray fills and the wash cycle will not end. Sponge out the pan, re-set and your good to go for a couple of washes.
On closer look looks like a small leak in a corrigated tube and when the cycle starts a small spray of water leaks out causing the try to re-fill.
Now If I could figure out how to get in there and replace the tube I would be a happy camper.

It is common for these valves to "appear" to be ok, meaning they begin to allow water into the unit, but then one of the two coils or plungers inside fail, or are clogged with mineral deposit from the water or other debris.
Change the valve and you should be fine. part #1164471, you can find it at select parts depots or on-line retailers like repairclinic.com etc.
** Hire a pro or make sure to use a good replacement clamp on the fill line to the tub when you replace the valve, as well as some plumbers puddy/tape on the inlet fitting. Those little buggers have alot of water pressure going thru them when they open and I've seen them come off or leak due to insufficient fastening/loose clamps, then your machine goes into "flood mode".**
Asko seems to be repeating their past. On the earlier DW95 series (mid 90's to around 2000ish) they had a dual valve inlet which had a single valve rework issued to repair the faulty dual valves, now it looks like they're doing it again. Go figure.
Hope that helps, let me know.
Good Luck :)

This is a anti flood activation. It is a safety device (polystireen float and micro switch at the base of the washer) that keeps the drain motor running due to water leak / spill detection. Dry the water and rectify the leak (normaly pipe or clamp leak) and this should solve the problem.

Hello Lynne, welcome to fixya.
I know what the problem is, though you may not like it. I would still start by checking your water inlet temperature, the unit must be connected to a "hot" water supply line. Try running the hot water at your sink tap to insure the cold water is out of the lines just before you turn on the dishwasher.
That is just a suggestion out of courtesy however...
If it is what I suspect, the control, this won't make any difference but it's worth a try. If on the other hand the water is good and hot entering the machine, you likely have an issue with the control as I alluded to.
The reason your dishwasher is displaying a "1" is the control has detected a heating error. It isn't the countdown time. The error code is displayed by the number "1". Here`s the most likely reason why it has detected the error...
Even if your home water supply appears hot, it's not hot enough and must be heated by the dishwasher to insure a proper clean and dry.
The issue with your Bosch dishwasher likely lye`s within`the electronic timer/control, specifically the heater relay solder joint. ( a faulty flow switch, ntc or heater can also cause this, but not very probable ). This is why it runs forever unless pressing the two buttons for "cancel".
To repair your unit It will require you to remove the control from the unit and then remove the control from it`s plastic housing and look for a burnt solder contact on the printed circuit board. This will be one of the pins from the heater relay, hence the unit sit`s at "1" ( because it can`t heat to advance or until canceled ) trying to heat the water.
**Further to this, if you or someone you know is proficient at soldering, a lot of times it can be remedied by simply repairing the solder...although Bosch recommend`s replacing the control and I don`t pretend to speak on there behalf nor do I profess to know better. This is just my experience (it work`s) and my opinion (why buy new if one can repair ?)**
**Please disconnect the power before attempting any service to the dishwasher. If you do not feel comfortable attempting this service, call a local pro, preferably one familiar with Bosch/Thermador/Gaggenau, to service your machine.**
Hope this answer`s your question's, let me know if I can assist you further. Thank`s for visiting "fixya" for your repair inquiries. Please take a moment and rate this solution to it's helpfulness to you and leave a testimony if you're satisfied.
