Question about Asko 24 in. 1585 Built-in Dishwasher
There is a small fan in the upper left corner of the door. It always runs, even when not washing. I have to unplug the washer for it to stop. Is this normal? I don't recall it running all the time until this year. I am afraid if I leave it on it will burn out the fan motor !
Servicing the Door Switch
On many dishwashers, the latch engages a switch to activate the timer and other control components. If the latch is not completely engaged or if the switch is faulty, the machine will not operate. Here's how to test and repair a door switch:
Step 1: Latch the door and hold the latch tightly in the closed position. This works best on a unit with a lever-type latch. Then turn the control to the ON position. If the unit works, the problem is probably a misaligned lock unit. Adjust the lock unit with a screwdriver. If this doesn't solve the problem, the switch may be faulty.
Step 2: Test the switch with a volt-ohm-milliammeter (VOM) set to the RX1 scale. Remove the panel covering the door switch and remove one of the electrical lead wires of the switch from its terminals. Clip one probe of the VOM to each switch terminal and shut the dishwasher's door. If the meter reads zero, the switch is working. If the meter reads higher than zero, the switch is faulty and should be replaced.
Step 3: Replace the switch with a new one of the same type. Connect the new switch the same way the old one was connected.

If you do not recall it running all the time then there is a problem. it would surely burn if it is running 24/7.
i suggest you take a look at the schematics if it has one and trace the problem from there.
good idea to unplug the unit.
tnx 4 using fixya,
