This has been comming up every few months for nearly two years. Normal solution is to switch everything off ie re boot.
This time no luck, took the back off dirve belt is fine, drum and motor move by hand, but on any program the motor is not roating ( I watched with back off).
Water fill and drain works just fine and we are not overloading.
We got the same problem 2 weeks ago. Overode it by swiching everything off and then back on, wish we hadn't as te machine stopped washing 1 week later. Motor has gone $300 and it took the electronic controler out as well $300. Labour $100 plus call out $95. It'sa serious falut and should get it fixed which begs the question why have fault indicator ro this problem if you cna overide it. In addition you probbaly have a minor water leak from above the motor, which can be fixed with silicone. Asko saya it's machine lasts 20 years, think again as for a $1900 machine very disappointed.

Re: wash motor fault
Sounds like its just time for as motor. The motor is covered for 5 years parts only and 3 years parts and labor. Otherwise expect to pay about $180 for the part from an asko dealer. Only one I know of in the US is American Appliance in denver. 303 777 0993. Good Luck!

All bosch appliances are sold with a two year manufacturers guarantee. Call 0844 872 8999 to arrange an engineer. Sounds like it could be any of the following Heater, PCB, Pressure switch or Motor fault
sounds like you've either got a stiff motor or gunk in the drum making it difficult for the motor to turn. When the fuse blows the drum won't turn at all but as yours is trying to turn then throwing the fault up it sounds like something is causing too much resistance
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I presume that you thought the belt might be slipping? Unfortunately in this instance the indications are that the motor is malfunctioning.
Options are to change the brushes, if that appears to be a relatively easy task, or to purchase a new motor but please note my pre-typed guidance notes for belts and motors following.
'However it is false economy to just have the brushes changed although financially very attractive. Experience of others is that the brushes may only last months unless, that is, the motor is totally refurbished at the same time. It depends on how old the motor is and how much wear the commutator has had'.
In other words you can take a chance!
I changed our Bosch motor (and at the same time the belt of course) a few months ago- it is nearly 20 years old- at a cost of GBP250.
The motor switch that is mounted on the motor may need replacing. The knocking could mean that the "run" winding is cutting off momentarily, and running on the "start" winding of the motor. I dont know about a 22 year old model, but in most "near modern" machines, the switch has a plastic actuator that is pushed when the motor obtains near-run speed, that plastic may be worn or the actuator part on the motor may be at fault. If you replace the motor, you usually get this switch as part of the deal.
see if there is a blockage in the level switch. the switch operates on air pressure within the dip tube and the diaphragm in the switch. there may be a spider's nest in the tube or a wasp's nest in the tube.
