Question about Dishwashers
SOURCE: drain pump won't stop
that usually happens when there is water in the base of the dishwasher where the motors are. Check to see if there is water in the base. This will trigger a float that turns off the water and on the drain pump.Remove the water and it should fill. However note that water came from somewhere, so find where it is leaking.

This is a on going problem with asko and they keep jerking everyone around with this defect. I had a repair person come over and used a turkey baster with a 7" rubber hose attached to the end of the baster. He took off the kick plate and inserted the hose end in the overflow tray and pull about of 12 onces of water from the tray. He is a asko repair facility and says it is a comon problem and has made the repair solution on his own as it is easier then taking the hole dishwaser out and tip it on the side just to drain the water. This has been on going for 3 years and each time i called asko it was like i was the only person having such a problem. I now do this every 3 months and the problem is on going. What a piece of junk. Purchased at Marcellas appliances in Schenectady,NY. They also know how to avoid the problem in fact there repair person left out most of the screws so the next time it would take less time to drain the water. DDDDDont buy ASKO. Michael Foote

If the cycle does not stop draining that is usually because of a faulty
water level switch that controls the water level in your appliance.
The faulty sensor cause the machine to think that there is still water inside, even when water has drained completely.
Check if the floating sensor is stuck or faulty.
Some machine may use a membrane switch instead of a floater.

Plugged system or a jammed drain pump can cause these issues, also make sure the drain hose is not blocked. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance. Daniel

It is a common fault that the drain fails to work in most machines in a period of time and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If there is intermittent power to the drain valve/pump then the program controller unit is a suspect. Also if the Inlet valve is staying OPEN and the drain pump is working as soon as the machine is switched on then it can be fault in the controller unit.
