My ASKO washing machine will not go through its regular cycle
I think I must have had a power surge this summer and my machine must have been on. Now, it will not follow its regular cycle but seems to stop without washing the clothes. I have turned the machine off for a long time (it is now over 2 months!) thinking it would reset itself, but it hasn't. I don't have a repairman near me for my ASKO so I am hoping you can help me and that this is a quick fix. Oh! By the way, I had to use the manual open lever for the door the three times I have tried to use the machine...

There should be a trap to catch small items that might slip past the seals of the drum. find it and clean it out. That might correct the problem.
However, you might be using too much or the wrong kind of laundry detergent. Front loaders can't use regular top loader detergent. Too much suds can cause the machine to stop. that may be why you find suds in the drum when you think the washing should be done.
Some units have lights that change as the washing process changes what it is doing. If it's working properly, the light indicating the door is unlocked will be lit at the end of the washing cycle. If the machine stops short of that, something is definitely wrong with the machine and requires a thorough inspection by a professional. Jim Hart
it is probably the belt, take off the back of the machine and look at the black rubber belt that spins the cleaning drum. The belts break after about 5 years, you can get a replacement belt at you local Asko dealer, I recall that is was pretty easy to change, like doing a bike chain, Talk to you Asko dealer about how to change it.
Purchased ASKO Washer WL6511XXLP and Gas Dryer with pedestals, 12/01/09. It threw a drum paddle during 2nd. wash cycle. Damaged several articles of clothing. ASKO replaced the paddle 2/19/09 after a lot of phone calls (lip service from the ASKO 800 #). They claimed the part had to come from Sweden (reason for delay).
Washer threw another drum paddle during 4th. wash cycle. Damaged several more articles of clothing. We have made no claim for the damaged clothing, the retailer has been cooperative.
ASKO has promised to replace the washer after the retailer we purchased the washer from, stronglyencouraged them to do so. We are still without a washer (03/23/09). My wife and I are retired, I am 76. Point being; we do not abuse washing machines and we don't like going to a launder-mat.
I know this is not the venue to address this problem, but am at my wits end.
Do all of your cycles work when you turn them manually? If one cycle does not work when you turn the dial on it then it will be your timer (The dial assembly $100-up) If all your cycles work manually, then it could be your timer motor which is attached to your timer assembly.
If you turn the dial pass the wash, on to the rinse, does the dial automaticly move (when finishng the rinse cycle)to the spin cycle? If so then your timer motor is ok.
The only wires close to the bottom are the motor, but these should be high enough out of the way.
