SOURCE: Bosch dishwasher has water in bottom after cycle is complete

Hi

Kindly check for the following :

Check for hose kinks or food plugging drain hose. Start at the drain port exit.
Check the check valve and drain hose for debris.
Check pump motor for reversing during the pump out make sure the dishwasher is pausing between the wash and drain cycles letting the pump/motor reverse for the drain cycle.
Check pump motor assembly for a drain solenoid, during the pump out make sure the solenoid makes that distinctive "clunk" noise
If you have recently installed a new garbage disposal, check knock-out plug at connection.

Check pump impeller for damage.
Check that the water inlet valve isn't seeping fresh water into the dishwasher when off.

Please contact for any further clarifications.

A Fixya Rating would be appreciated if.

Thanks

SOURCE: dishwasher does not complete cycle

It could be a clogged in the drain line. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. You should remove this line and clear it form any debris in the hose or the hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again. Good luck!

SOURCE: Detergent accidentally put into rinse dispenser

You need to use something to siphon the detergent out of the dispenser. I have plastic syringes for this type of purpose. You don't use the needle attachment.

If you cannot fit the syringe into the opening, then you may try to use clear plastic tubing to syphon out the detergent.

Once the flow of detergent stops, you should then use warm water to rinse the residue. If you have the syringe, you could use it to force water into the dispenser.

This may take a little time, but it is better than trying to disassemble stuff!

Good Luck

SOURCE: Detergent will not dispense during the wash cycle

Something simple you can check is to make sure the spring that flips open the door is not broken or caked up with detergent.

As for the soap not dissolving, I've had similar problems and the only solution I've found is to make sure you are not blocking  the spray jet on the bottom from hitting the soap drawer.

My Asko D1976 dishwasher is not cleaning dishes properly. There is a lot of clumped detergent left in the dispenser after wash cycles are complete, and many of the dishes have dried-on food left on them. ...


First of all, don't pre-rinse the dishes. Check the water temperature, it should be between 120 and 140 degrees. Be sure you are not partially blocking the dispenser door so that it isn't opening.

LED is flashing F3 while load is in the washing machine. It has stopped running. It is full of soapy water. ASCO W6441 Quattro 1400


Hi,

The "F3" for Asko washer`s indicates a problem occurred during pump out or specifically with the pump.

Based on your description of the unit being "full of soapy water" I suspect you have the wrong detergent or too much in the machine. These Asko ( any front load for that matter and some hi efficient top load`s recently ) must be used with lo-sudsing detergent`s only, also known as "H-E" detergent. If the manufacturer`s recommendation to use only "H-E" is not followed the unit will not function properly. ( "H-E" detergent`s do not use nearly as much "soap" as an additive in the detergent thus there should be no or very little suds present with the proper amount, always use half or a third of what is recommended on the detergent container, after all, they are in the business of selling detergent. The more you use is a benefit to them and of little to no consequences...except to you the consumer ) Some symptom`s include not allowing the pump to drain the unit properly, hence creating an error code such as "F3".

You may be able to remedy the error by way of removing the item`s of clothing, add some white vinegar ( this will help neutralize the suds ) and run the washer thru a short wash or rinse cycle. You may need to repeat this procedure to wash away excessive soap buildup in the machine.

You may also need to prewash clothing previously washed with regular detergent or in top load machines to minimize sudsing as well. This is something I suggest to all my customer`s who are new to the front load world.

If this does not remedy the problem and in fact the unit just won`t drain, check the pump for any obstructions in the filter insert/pin trap.

Here`s how to check...

**1. Turn off the power to the machine.

2. Using a flathead screwdriver
or similar item,
gently pry open the
drain pump cover if present on your model.

3. There is always a small amount of water in
the drain pump area. Before you open the drain
cover, place a shallow container, such as a pie pan,
on the floor below the drain to catch the water.

4. Pull the small black drain
hose loose from its position
on the door cover and let
the water drain into the pan.

5. Twist the pin trap cover
counterclockwise and lift it
out.

6. You can now clean out
any grit or small
objects. You should
also clean the pump
rotor at the back of the
pump housing.

7. Replace the drain cover and return the drain hose
to its position on the door.**

These are common issue`s to look for with Asko, or as I alluded to prior any front load machine. You may want to consider calling in an authorized Asko servicer if you are not completely comfortable with any of these suggestions or performing these procedures.

( I don`t know why my font changed nor how to change it back ,sorry not my computer right now it`s a netbook lol )

Hope this help`s solve your problem. If so please take a moment to rate the info I provided. If not let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you for visiting "fixya" for you Asko inquiries.

Good luck.

Detergent dispenser tray not draining water after cycles


I have the same problem and sometimes water stays in the detergent tray as well. I don't have a solution other than to remove the whole tray and drain in the sink after each cycle.

Detergent dispenser doesn't empty completely


The detergent reservoir should pop open allowing the wash water to "wash" the detergent clean. It sounds like your DW is not "spraying" with full force. From your description, it sounds like your water pump is malfunctioning OR your drain is clogged with food and the water flow is restricted, because the wash water is the original rinse water from the first cycle and it recirculates. Check and make certain your drain is not clogged before you call the repairman or replace the machine.

Detergent stays in the dispenser


Clean and dry your dispenser prior to filling with detergent.
Use only fresh detergent.
Do not place anything ie. cookie sheets, cutting boards in the path of the water obstructing the dispenser.
Do not allow anything to fall between the racks and stop the spray arms from turning.
Always turn the hot water on at the sink prior to starting you dishwasher they use less than 2 gallonsof water in the initial cycle and they require 120 deg f water. Unless you have hot water recirculation in your home.
If you have low water volume or low water pressure due to bad impellor or windings in circulation pump. The water volume or pressure will be insuficient to reach the dispenser.

The softener holder just fills with water but will not drain.


Is water left in the dispenser at the end of the cycle?
About two tablespoons of water remaining in the dispenser compartment at the end of the cycle is normal. At the end of the wash cycle, fresh water automatically cleans the dispenser. Check that the cycle is complete before opening the dispenser drawer.
Is the dispenser drawer clogged?
A clogged dispenser can block the flow of water through the dispenser and cause water to leak out. Manually remove the dispenser, and clean any leftover detergent or additives that could clog the flow of water through the dispenser. Also, check that the detergent drawer is always completely closed during the cycle. If the drawer is not closed completely, water can leak out onto the floor.
Are the additives dispensing too early?
Here are a few things that can cause the additives (detergent, fabric softener or liquid chlorine bleach) to dispense early:
  • Check that the dispenser is not overfilled. Do not fill past the MAX fill lines on the dispenser. Overfilling can cause early dispensing of liquid chlorine bleach and/or fabric softener.
  • Check that the detergent separator is in the correct position. For liquid detergent, the separator should be in the front position. For powdered detergent, the separator should be in the rear position. If the separator is in the rear position while you are using liquid detergent, it will dispense immediately, which is not how it is designed to work.
  • Use powdered HE detergent when using the DELAY WASH option. Liquid detergent may dispense prior to the start of wash.
Are the additives dispensing too late?
The additives will not dispense until the proper time if the DELAY WASH option is selected.

Detergent not being washed out of dispenser


This suggestion is not too good. If your dispenser opens at the initial stages of the cycle, just a little - pour some water into the dispenser to wash down the detergent. (For my machine i can pull out the dispenser anytime during the wash, except when water comes into the dispenser, but even then i think the water enters the tub.) For this you dont have to hang around the machine for long for it is in the initial stages of the cycle. Later you hv to check the flow of water into the dispenser. Hv no idea how to do it; but i gave you a quick solution.

Bleach and softener dispensers filled with water at end of cycle


Yes, remove the dispenser tray by pressing on the button on the softner and pulling out tray completely. Now lift the flap over the softner compartment and clean thourougly with hot water, making sure all tubes and holes are free from residue softner/detergents. Replace flap by making sure the bigger tube fits OVER the smaller tube and click into place. Replace tray. Water is present due to the "syphon effect" of the dispenser not working, caused by residue detergents blocking the tubes/holes. Oshie
