MY DISHWASHER WONT KICK INTO WASH CYCLE CAN HEAR THAT IT WANTS TO BUT DOESN'T ..IT WILL FILL AND DRAIN AND DRY...CHECKED DRAIN AND FILTER CLEAR


Hi,
Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description and provided the dishwasher is indeed filling with water, draining, heating, but not circulating, It sounds like a busted wash impeller within the main motor/circulation pump.

First though, do you hear a quiet sound of a motor starting once the unit has completed filling with water ?

( it will be super quiet if the wash impeller is broke as I suspect it may be...almost like a fountain, since the Viking...built by "Asko"...are very quiet under normal conditions. You will have to either get right down with your ear to the bottom or run it with the door open by activating the door switch with a screw-driver )


If so that is a tell tale of no wash action yet the motor runs, hence broken impeller. If you don't hear anything it may be a wire come off the main motor/circulation pump...but not likely.

This unfortunately is common with Asko built dishwasher`s and it is a case of being a victim of their own design.

What happens typically is the ball-bearings from the upper rack holders ( which are plastic which fatigues due to heat and fall apart ) fall out making their way into the sump, hence breaking the wash impeller from the motor.

Let me know what you find and I'll try and help you move forward from there.

Good luck,

Macmarkus :)

My dishwasher starts fills water and never starts wash cycle?


If you hear a hum when it should be washing, the motor has seized. Replace motor. If it fills with water and stops quite, run it through a test using the tech sheet under the bottom panel to access. These dishwasher have had issues with the motor.

Dishwasher makes squeeling noise when filling with water


if the dishwasher is only filling when u hear the noise it could be a bad water valve or if you are lucky it could be the screen in your water valve is dirty, however if it is filling and washing at the same time and you hear a noise like sqeeling it could be your motor, before u replace the motor. check the water valve or screen on valve may be dirty

Dishwasher fills up and then stops


the cycle for all dishwashers is 1/pump out for approx ! minute 2/ fill. 3/circulation motor, so the problem is the motor is jammed(can you hear a humming sound? or the motor is faulty and will require replacing

I had the same problem with mine. I ended up having to pull the dishwasher out from under the counter and tipped in on it's face. My problem was apparently with the pump motor. It would come on, and I knew this because I could hear the hum. Well when I pulled the dishwasher out from the counter I noticed the motor was extremely hot, which to me says there was a block in the pump's way. I pulled the motor by loosening the set screw, 10mm with a 1/4in socket wrench and extension, which is located on top of the motor. First you have to disconnect the power by squeezing the tabs together and pulling upward. After that a quarter turn counterclockwise will unlock the motor. Pull the motor back and check the screens and impeller. I cleaned the screens and manually turned the impeller. Put it back together by doing the steps in reverse, clean up any spilled water thoroughly before plugging it back in and re-plumbing. That solved my problem, good luck.
