Cleaning the Pin Trap

We've had the Asko for about a year and a half and I cleaned the pin trap in the first six months. Tried to do clean #2 tonite and cannot get into the trap. The manual sez to 'Unscrew the Pin trap cover and lift it out.' I twist the white cover, it comes off and exposes a white circular facing that I cannot budge. I have tried to force it out by pulling at its sides with 2 screw drivers, but don't want to damage anything. Any hints? Thanks

    I, too, have this problem. Cannot even budge using a chizel that is the size. Don't find anyone who has an answer. If you did find a way to do it, please let me know. Oh, my model is the 6221.

    Yes, the XXXn pin trap will not come out after the cover is removed. How do you remove it without breaking it into small pieces?

I also had this problem. Here is what I did. When the white cover comes off, it exposes the white circular facing. That's ok, once we get the pin trap out, the cover snaps back on. What has happened is that the pin trap is so full (of money in my case) that it is jammed. The facing has an indentation, but you can't get a grip on it with something like pliers because pliers squeeze, they don't spread. I found a tool at the hardware store called "chain pliers" that when you squeeze them, the jaws spread. There were multiple indentations on them, the first set were pretty thin and I was afraid I'd break the plastic lip on the facing. So I cut the tips of the chain pliers off with a hack saw. Once I got a grip on the facing, I jiggled it in and out until it released.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

If you have already cleaned the drain filter assembly located inside the bottom front panel and the problem is not solved then it is the drain pump that is bad and needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Asko washing machine won't drain.


Further on to this F3 problem I had the issue on model W6461. There is a short cut to the fix, instead of taking off the grey pipe from the drain pump (the hose clips are pre crimped in the factory so as stated above are difficult to remove) try this.
Stages as follows:
1) Open drain pump door (bottom left of machine).
2) Remove black pipe and drain residual water.
3) Unscrew coin trap and remove, use a container to hold the water.
4) Leave the container underneath and make sure you have some towels ready (I didn't at the time)
5) Where the washing machine drain hose connects to the outlet or U bend connector remove this and expose the end.
6) Blow into the drain hose as hard as possible......hopefully the blockage will clear through back the coin trap.

Result:
A large lump of sludge, three of my 5 year olds small counter coins and about a litre of water.

Just ran the machine now and fault cleared.


Good luck

The screen is flashing F3, what does this mean?


the drain pump of the washing machine is either got loose or its not working or the drain pump is blocked. Water outlet fault (Grey Hose) If F3 is flashing in the display, there is a problem with drainage. Check: • that no objects are stuck in the drainage hose outlet. • that the drainage pump is not blocked by foreign objects. Clean the pump (see the "CLEAN THE PUMP" chapter MENTIONED BELOW FOR MORE HELP). • that there are no kinks in the drainage hose. ------------------ CLEAN THE PUMP Checking the trap and drainage pump The washing machine has a trap, where coins, hairpins and the like can get caught. To clean the filter and drainage pump: 1. Make sure the machine is empty of water and that it is switched off at the mains. 2. Open the hatch for the drainage pump as shown in the illustration. 3. Drain out the water, into a bowl, for example, by unhooking the drainage hose from the pin inside the hatch. 4. Unscrew the cover anti-clockwise and remove. 5. Remove any foreign objects from the trap and pump assembly. Check to see that the pump blades, right at the back, will rotate. 6. Screw on the cover, replace the drainage hose on the hatch pin and close the hatch.
---------- This will help.please do rate the solution if helped.keep updated for further assistance.

My Asko 6461 washing machine - F3 code


F3 problem, I had the issue on model W6461, however, judging by the amount of F3 issues posted this could work on other ASKO models If the coin trap in the drain is clear of debris, try this. Stages as follows:
1) Open drain pump door (bottom left of machine).
2) Remove black pipe and drain residual water.
3) Unscrew coin trap and remove, use a container to hold the water.
4) Leave the container underneath and make sure you have some towels ready (I didn't at the time)
5) Where the washing machine drain hose connects to the outlet in the wall or U bend connector remove this and expose the end.
6) Blow into the drain hose as hard as possible......hopefully the blockage will clear back through the coin trap.
7) Pour some water into the open end and blow this back through the drain as well.

Result:
A large lump of sludge, three of my 5 year olds small counter coins and about a litre of water (all over the floor, don't forget the towels!)

Just ran the machine now and fault cleared.

Water constantly in pin trap


I had this problem and found out there was something stuck in the drain hose.  It also made my clothes smell sour.  Unhook your drain hose stretch it out straight, run water through and maybe snake it if need be.

W620 Drain Hose Goes Where??


The little black hose in the pin trap compartment gets hooked onto the round pin on the door of the pin trap access, that little hose is a bypass hose from the pump inlet

Front drain plug


I have similar issues with my Asko W660. Once it was a key stuck between the inlet to the pin trap and the trap itself. I got it out by jiggling and poking into the trap area with a narrow strip of plastic. Mostly, though, it just requires a stronger grip on the door to the pin trap--the little handle is slippery, and hard to get a good grip on. Try making a grip out of a piece of duct tape, or grabbing the handle with pliers.

Asko W620 washing machine not spinning


Sounds like the motor brushes need to be cleaned or replaced. Take the back off the washer, remove the motor and gently scrape the excess carbon or debris off the brushes with a pocket knife. I did this and it ran well for about 50 loads before building back up. I am ordering new brushes now because when I checked the brushes last week they were obviously worn more than 4 weeks ago.
