F6 on an asko washer means a fault was detected with the motor. What this means 99% of the time is the brushes in the motor are worn. As long as the armature isn't damaged, (visual inspection while turning motor shaft should identify damage) you'll be fine replacing the brushes.

part # 764414, 2 required, about $40US each (better than $400US plus for a motor).

hope that helps

good luck

The ECU should be tested. Look for the service manual inside the chassis for troubleshooting procedures.

SOURCE: My Asko 6461 washing machine - F3 code

F3 problem, I had the issue on model W6461, however, judging by the amount of F3 issues posted this could work on other ASKO models If the coin trap in the drain is clear of debris, try this. Stages as follows:
1) Open drain pump door (bottom left of machine).
2) Remove black pipe and drain residual water.
3) Unscrew coin trap and remove, use a container to hold the water.
4) Leave the container underneath and make sure you have some towels ready (I didn't at the time)
5) Where the washing machine drain hose connects to the outlet in the wall or U bend connector remove this and expose the end.
6) Blow into the drain hose as hard as possible......hopefully the blockage will clear back through the coin trap.
7) Pour some water into the open end and blow this back through the drain as well.

Result:
A large lump of sludge, three of my 5 year olds small counter coins and about a litre of water (all over the floor, don't forget the towels!)

Just ran the machine now and fault cleared.


Good luck

Model 20605 Probably very old. First time using it in new home. How do I open the inside door? Is there a latch someplace? Is there a place I can get a manual?


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

The Asko 20605 washer is an older model indeed, but not as old as you might think, the serial number would indicate it's actual manufactured date but it is in the neighborhood of late 90's early millennium.

Those particular electronic control models have a button on the front which unlocks the door if the power is "on".

For a more detailed explanation I've tried to copy & paste a clip from my service info.

The door can also become "stuck" closed if in-active for a period of time with the door in the closed position as it will stick to the rubber seal around the basket opening. You may need to pull slightly on the door as you push the lock switch to unlock it.

Let me know if this clears up the matter for you and I'll try and assist you in whatever manner I can going forward...if need be.

Thank you for choosing FixYa for your inquiry. Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)
