Question about Asko D1706 Built-in Dishwasher

2 Answers

Asko D1706 Dishwasher will no longer respond to control knob, turning knob clockwise has no effect on cycle nor will this turn dishwasher off! Dishwasher appears to be stuck in some part of cycle but will no longer wash dishes, door must be left open or will not turn off!

    BTW the door switch is working so the DW goes on now when the door is closed off when opened, also the pump is working and drains the DW if you pour water into the drain. The problem is that this thing appears to be stuck in "drain" mode always pumping out not advancing through the cycle no matter where you turn the control knob to.

    exactly the same problem, the pump would only hum when the dish washer is closed, and would stop when the dishwasher door is opened. I pulled up the coarse filter, and there was a rubber band!! Looks like someone loaded a dish with a rubber band in it. Upon removing the rubber band, unscrewing and cleaning the fine filter and removing the yellow cover under the fine filter and feeling the pump vanes move unhindered, I put it all back together and ran the system. It now went through the various steps until it reached #6 and got stuck between #6 and #7. Problem persists! Same sound, water in the pan that doesn't appear to be pumped away. Help!

I also had this problem. Support person couldn't tell me if the pump was supposed to run even when setting the control knob to 'off' (bar before (1)). After draining the pan, the control knob functioned normally. So apparently any power to the unit will run the pump when the overflow pan is filled, no matter the position of the knob.

    Although a blockage at the disposal can block the draining action, be sure to also check the drain line. The Asko manual also states the entire length of the drain line and including any extenders and U-loops should be 7/8". Be sure to check the entire length for blockages or significant buildup causing a restriction.

    Poor or no draining can also be caused by a weak or non-functioning drain pump.

    On the Asko D1706, below the fine and coarse filters, at the bottom left (from the machine front view) of the sump is a semi-circular plug. Make sure power is turned off to the machine. Remove the plug (okay to do while water is in the sump well), and feel for the vanes of the impeller. Rotate the impeller with your finger.

    It should take a firm touch to rotate it, and it will 'cog' several times a rotation, and spring ahead or feel 'looser' as it advances past the cog points. If the impeller turns smoothly and with little force, the pump is bad and need to be replaced.

    To get a pump, call Asko Parts (866-223-5549), or one of their recommended online suppliers such as While you're on the phone with Asko, ask them to send you the exploded view diagram for your model to make sure you get the right part #. Another option is to call Asko Service (800-898-1879), and ask for a list of servicing companies in your zip code or region. One or more of them may stock replacement parts.
    In the Minneapolis area, only D&T Appliance Service in Hopkins (, 952-934-5522) stocks parts.

    On the D1706, as of v95.2 there is a Drain Pump Kit 8801353 that contains the pump 8072032, the O-ring (8002584) and the output hose clamp (8052239).

    Removing the pump is straightforward. Remove all the water you can, from the sump area, and from the pan at the machine bottom (after removing the toe kick and guard plate (see installation instructions)). Remove the far end of the drain hose, where it connects to a disposal or similar, and drain the hose as best possible. The pump assembly rotates on the sump housing, rotate the top edge towards the front of the dishwasher. Although it is fairly durable, make sure the drain hose doesn't get abraided on the sump assembly, or remove it first by removing the clamp and twisting the drain hose off. Once the pump assembly is rotated around 30 degrees, it will be removable from the sump assembly. Between them is the O-ring. Clean out any debris before replacing the O-ring and pump. I would also strongly recommend removing the drain hose and thoroughly cleaning it at this time. Also be sure the disposal (or similar) port is clean and able to freely pass water.

    To install the pump reverse the steps above. It does not 'click' into place, just rotate back until it is in the orginal position against the rotational stop. Reconnect the hose and any other removed parts (such as sump plug and screens).
