I have a asko W640T2 thats the model on the invoice 6 years old. There is a short in the washer it keeps on throwing the house earth switch out so I had a look at the circuit board and found some componace were black and mybe burnt can I buy the board with the componance over the net or will I have to have it repaired (This washer is electronic) Hope you can help MANY THANKS
I am a technician for Asko in Australia.The blackness on the motor control unit(circuit board) is probably carbon dust from the carbon brushes in electric motor.Likely problem is motor brushes have totally worn the armiture in motor or the MCU needs replacing due to earth leakage or short.Purchasing the parts from Asko should be no problem, but if you purchase and install electrical componenents only to find problem unresolved, you can't return installed parts for a refund. Also the breather hose from the detergent dispensor to outer tank can leak from tank connection when spinning load , and result in water running down outer tank and onto the electric motor causing circuit breaker to trip.....possibly damaging motor too. Goodluck!!

Re: W640T2 (CIRCIUT BOARD)
Can't help you a lot with this. you should be able to buy the spare over the net. however be careful, circuit boards often burn out due to an external fault. trace where the burnt items end up on the connectors of the board and trace the wiring to see if you can check if an external component is faulty. i'm in UK not US

to the touch the clothing should not be very hot, i see where ya have cleaned the vents(good job!!) on occasion i have found where a fabric softner sheet has clung to the face of the lint filter housing,look at the plastic housing around the area of where the lint filter goes and see if something is stuck to it restricting the air flow into the filter housing
Sounds like the control board is fried. If you have gotten it open here is a link for a new board:
Good luck! And make sure the thing is unplugged before you work on it!
Unlike a toaster, which performs the exact same function over and over, washing machines run through elaborate cycles with multiple settings. The devices that control these cycles can occasionally fail. Here's how to repair some of the common switches and timers. Servicing the Lid Switch
The lid switch on a washer often serves as a safety switch. If the switch is not working, or if the switch opening in the lid is clogged with detergent, the machine will not run. To check and repair the lid switch:
Step 1: Unplug the machine. Clean out the lid switch port with a wood manicure stick or chopstick. Clean off any detergent buildup around the rim of the lid. Sometimes there's enough detergent encrusted on the metal to prevent the lid from closing tightly and keep the washer from operating.
Step 2: If cleaning doesn't help, remove the top of the cabinet to get at the switch. With the switch exposed, check the screws for looseness. Loose screws can cause the switch to move when the lid is closed or as the machine goes through its cycles. Check the terminals of the switch to make sure they're tight. Tighten the mounting screws after the switch is in alignment.
Step 3: Test the switch with a VOM set to the RX1 scale; procedures for using the VOM are detailedhere. Disconnect the power leads to the switch terminals and clip one probe of the VOM to each terminal. Close the lid of the washer. If the meter reads zero, the switch is working. If not, the switch is faulty and should be replaced.
Step 4: If necessary, replace the lid switch with a new one of the same type. Connect the new switch in exactly the same way the old one was connected. Step 5: If the switch still doesn't work, it is probably misaligned. Realign the switch by repositioning the screws holding it in place, testing the switch as you go until it works properly.
