Question about Asko 24 in. 1585 Built-in Dishwasher

2 Answers

Asko dishwasher model 1585

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 !

Hi 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.

For repairs to the timer, door latch, or switches, remove the control panel. To take it 
off, remove a series of retaining screws and the control knobs, and lift off the panel.

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,

How to fix door leak in ASKO D3231 dishwasher


Almost sounds like the machine was dropped and is out of square. Can you take it out of the install location and check the squareness of it on the drum and the rails? Also if you take it all the way out of the cabinet, you can see the other hinge locations and check them.

Driying fan does not stopps


Hi,

I think what you are describing is the "turbo fan" assembly. This device is used to remove the condensation to insure dishes are dry at the end of a cycle. It actually vent`s out the bottom left side via a plastic housing but the vent motor assembly is located inside the door at the upper left corner under the circular cover


i.e.

macmarkus_137.jpg


If it ( the fan) continues to run or "hums" because it`s trying to run, even when the dishwasher is idle or no program has been selected, it is likely a problem within` the control board unfortunately.


This is usually caused by the vent assembly getting clogged up so it cannot open correctly and the "wax motor" ( the small device which open`s and closes the vent ) burns up and short`s out the control board.

You can see the small wax motor in this image, the brown/red brick shaped device on top of the fan housing...

i.e.

macmarkus_138.jpg




If you`re capable, you can visually inspect the control and look for burnt up path ways on the printed circuit side ( green side with lot`s of solder joints ). It may be pretty obvious as soon as you see the control as it was ith this one I attached here,

i.e.

macmarkus_139.jpg


If so you`ll need to replace the control as well as the fan assembly, or clean the assembly really well,

i.e.

3

macmarkus_142.jpg

4

macmarkus_143.jpg

5

macmarkus_144.jpg

6

macmarkus_145.jpg

Clean all the fan blade a vent thoroughly and reassemble with the new wax motor and control and you should be good to go.

You may opt to just replace the entire fan assembly, it is available and comes as complete,

i.e.

macmarkus_146.jpg


Most asko control`s come with a new "wax motor"...or used to where I live. Unfortunately those control`s retail for about $400 and up, and most now are of the "rebuilt/refurbished" kind. The part number should be ( if the model number is correct ) # 8801201.

Hope this help`s move you forward. Let me know either way and I`ll try to assist you further.

Thank`s for visiting FixYa today for your repair solution`s and good luck moving forward. Please take a moment to rate the info I provided for you today and again good luck.

All the lights stay on after a cycle completion even after I siphoned all the remaining water in the filter sump.(After opening and closing the door. ASKO model 1585)


Hello, the reason for the light flash error is the unit either didn't drain properly, overfilled somehow or has a leak which is filling the "overfill basin" ( it's designed to, that way it doesn't get to your floor...in theory ). Check your drain hose by removing it where it connect's to your home plumbing via under sink pipe or food diposer/garberator. You'll also need to remove the lower access panel, or kick plate as it is sometimes referred to, and absorb the water in the basin before it will run a cycle...or wait a few days for enough water to evaporate from the basin ( shut off the power/breaker before doing so ) then look for evidence of a leak. Check at the fill valve, (to the left) the drain pump, (slightly to the left-center) as well as the circulation pump & hoses, ( it is much more difficult to see...directly behind the big gray main sump assembly). That should get you moving forward. The Asko can be a challenge to work on if you've never worked on one. That is why I usually suggest calling a pro, preferably an authorized Asko servicer. It may save many unessasary part's being changed as I see too often with these. Hope that help's, good luck. macmarkus :)

Asko 1585 Dishwasher


do they flash lik all on one side then the other? Start a cycle, then open the door. Do the lights flash the same way when you open the door as when it stops? if soyou may have a door that needs to be adjusted so it closes better. when the cycle ends, is there any standing water in the bottom? if so you may have a poorly routed drain hose or a partial clog in it. Last, pull the bottom panels off and look inside the bottom of the dishwasher and see if there is standing water down there . If ther is you have aleak somewhere or a bad drain pump. You r only other choice is a bad pressure switch. If youve already adjusted the water fil to the proper level ( just up to the grey plastic housing that the lower wash arm sits on) tehre really aernt any more options. Hope this helps!

Top Rack always slides out fully


Well, you are right on about the level. It is tilted just slightly forward. The only parts to go bad are the plastic ball bearing guides, and usually when they go, you get a rack that wont come out and gets jammed. You 've got the problem, you just need to remove the screws hidden in the holes that are sometimes coverd with rubber plugs so that the dishwasher may move freely, andjust it till it no longer rolls out, then screw it back to the counter to hold it in place. There are no springs in that rack, so either its still tilted forward, or the tank is bowed or bent somehow, and that would mean new dishwasher. Hope this helps!

Asko dishwasher


You could have a bad fill valve that doesnt close. Try unplugging the unit or turning off the power at the cuircuit breaker. (not the power button) If it still fills when you turn on the water, it just has a bad fill valve. If it does not fill, take apart the door and check for broken wires at the lower left corner and see if the wiring is shorted together. If it is not, you may have a stuck relay on the control board. Sometimes those realy stick, and if you can get to the board (located in the upper left corne of the door) you can tap on the relays with a small hammer or screwdriver handle one at a time (with the unit unplugged!) and some times they will unstick and be fine. Very low tech, I Know...but you are trying to avoid a board replacement. Good Luck!
