An authorized servicer could order them for you but I just priced them and they would cost over $300. You can find a servicer at asko's website.

Check inside the machine for fuse or circuit breaker. Replace or reset. If repeats, you have to contact the service center.

SOURCE: replace upper basket and bearings on Asko

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Yes the upper rack is pretty straight forward, but the bearings are tricky.

Here's what works for me, move the rack stops to the left if you haven't already and then the rack itself.

i.e.

1d854c5.jpg and

cb82cce.jpg

Now you'll need to remove the bumpers at the back of the rack rail...

i.e.

push down on the bumper as shown

a6e3c04.jpg
and pull it down and out at the same time...it takes some force as evident by my finger tip ha ha, you can use a small screwdriver...I'm just stubborn.

Now you'll need to slide the rail all the way out as shown, but careful not to let the ball bearings fall into the sump area in the process.

I usually hold the broken piece in place while removing the rail...

The trick now is to install the balls into the holders first...

9177d05.jpg
and the holders into the stationary part of the rail on the inside wall...

9c58331.jpg

The inside wall rail will keep the holders in place as you slide the inside rail into place...this will usually require holding the holder with one hand while pushing the sliding rail back into place...

Once this is done, re-install the back rail bumpers followed by the rack and then finally the front rack stoppers and that should do it.

Hope that explain it for you or gives you an idea of how it needs to be done.

Thanks for visitng "fixya" today for your repair help. Let me know if you require further assistance.

Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

P.S.

I should also mention you as I alluded to, be sure none of the old 8 ball bearings didn't fall down into either the drain pump or circulation/wash pump. This is something I've seen far too often on Asko dishwashers with the end result being a broken impeller in either pump...or both, yikes ! I use a telescopic magnet to fish around as it will be the only object made of metal...unless something else has fallen in the sump well area, it's good to check.

Again, good luck :)

How to re-install bearings on upper rack on asko 1475


Hello,
Welcome to FixYa.
Changing out the upper rack ball bearings...?
Yes there is a trick to installing new bearing & holders. Here's what works for me...
  • remove the rack stops if you haven't already and then the rack itself.
  • With the rack out of the way, remove the bumpers at the back of the rails which will allow you to perform the re-installation.
  • The trick now is to install the balls into the holders and the holders into the stationary part of the rail on the inside wall. The inside wall rail will keep the holders in place as you slide the inside rail into place...this will usually require holding the holder with one hand while pushing the sliding rail back into place. ( I should do a video of this on you-tube with how many I've done and tried to explain ).
  • Once this is done, re-install the back rail bumpers followed by the rack and then finally the front rack stoppers and that should do it.

Upper rack travel sticks and jams.....


you have a bad bearing retainer. you will need to call an asko parts dealer and order 8 upper rack ball bearings, and two ball bearing guides (they are grey plastic and break over time, causing the rack to jam. To replace tham, you must take the upper rack out by turning the plastic retainers on the front of both rails 90 degrees towards the outside of the machine. The slide the whole basket out. Now look at the back of the rails inside the dishwasher. there shoul be 2 more grey plastic retainers with bumpers on them in the rear. These must be pried out wiht a screwdriver (be careful, have cut myself several times on this job till i figured out the best way to do it. cover the bottom hole in the dishwasher with a rag, as you are likely to drop the old bearings when you slide the rails out. Slide out both the rails. Put your new (or old if youve got all 8) ball bearings into the ball bearing holders, then put the holders into the rail thats attached to the dishwasher. slide the rails back in, andthen put all your retainers back in and your rack. you may have to slide the rack in and out a few times before it will center the bearings and work smoothly. Should cost you about $12 in parts. Good Luck!
