Question about Asko Dishwashers

Open Question

My ASKO 1253 dishwasher sometimes floods for no aparent reason. I have run the cycles with covers off & it will run fine. All hoses etc are free flowing. Flooding is random & hence the dreaded intermitant problem. Any hints?

Hi KellyW,

 

The dishwasher drain hose may be clogged.  When the dishwashr starts up can you hear the water running into the Sink faucet drain. If not inspect the hose that attaches to the Sink Drain for restrictions.  Also in the bottom of the dishwasher you should have a filter.  If this filter is clogged you cannot expel water.  Clean the filter.

When you say that you tried other solutions.. it's hard to know which you've tried and which you haven't so I will suggest some basics first.. ( if you've tried them, then disregard)...
Have you checked or addressed the following:

  1. Cleaned the drain filter
  2. Checked the drain hose for crimps or restrictions
  3. Sure the drain system ( such as your feed thru the garbage disposal isn't clogged or restricting flow)
  4. Checked your water pump for an obstruction or you can determinbe if it is actually pumping
  5. The feed and returm hose ..to anf from the pump are not clogged, pinched or restricting flow.
These are the basics that you should have examined or confirmed aren't causing the problems you are seeing. One other as well.. are you sure your water inlet valve is completely shutting water from leaking in and over-filling the system? Check these items and you should be able to diagnose where the problem is.. Hope this helps you,

If the water is clean, no odor and is less than one inch of water, this is normal for almost every dishwasher made. The water lubricates the gaskets and sump assembly.

SOURCE: Water flooding onto floor when running.

The most common cause of this is a loose clamp on the pump discharge hose. It could also be a cracked hose, the hose came off (again, loose clamp). Check both ends - where the hose connects to the dishwasher AND where it connects to the sink drain.

Another possible cause is a bad pump seal, although this is less common, and usually open happens when the dishwasher is pretty old.

Our Asko dishwasher slowly fills with water after it has finished washing, this happens over a couple of hours. Asko model 1253.


Check the inlet water flow to the machine. Clean the strainer attached to the junction of the rubber hose and the machine.

The strainer is submerged in the machine body. Pull it by hand and clean. It is small in size.

Asko D3230 dishwasher pump will not turn off, with main switch on


This is a anti flood activation. It is a safety device (polystireen float and micro switch at the base of the washer) that keeps the drain motor running due to water leak / spill detection. Dry the water and rectify the leak (normaly pipe or clamp leak) and this should solve the problem.

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 :)

My Asea 1502 Dishwasher gets most of the way through a cycle then stops with lights flashing. It is empty of water. What is the problem?


Further to my problem with my 19 year old ASKO ASEA D1502 Dishwasher .
I found a Use & Care Guide online at the ASKO site:
http://www.asko.com.au/downloads/manuals/
(It is an 8MB PDF, only 20 pages scanned)

The manual says flashing lights in the combo I had indicate heater fault.
Manual has good test procedure and I followed that and it showed that the Heater is OK.
Machine works through full cycle but flashes at the end.
It is an old machine so I suppose I just live with it unless anyone has any suggestions.

Asko D1796F1 builtin...lights are on but no one is home


Our Asko D1796 dishwasher has the lights on the panel working as usual but you can't select a cycle and it won't turn on. We unplugged the pipe. If we turn it off and wait for 12+ hours we have gotten it to work twice.
