Question about Asko W6221 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Machine drains and dial turns directly to S after filling with water.

My Asko washing (W620) machine is 6 years old. When starting the cycle, the water fill happens. ~15 seconds after the water has finished entering machine, the dial begins turning and the machine drains. The dial lands on the "S" position and that is it. Another clue is the water that drains out the machine is stone cold. The "S" position in the manual gives no other troubleshooting instructions except call a service techincian. I'd rather save my pennies. My guess is that the heating element is not working. Upon finding the water is not reaching temperature for wash the machine defaults to "S" while draining. This assumes there is a temperature monitoring switch that tells the machine to begin wash. Can anyone confirm this for me or suggest another likely problem? -Wiebster

Moe thasn likly you have a pressure switch that is either telling the machine its too full and making it drain or its not seeing the switch and so it drains. Another possibility ids the machine is leaking. Pull the lower cover off and make sure there is no water in the bottom. These askos have a float switch down there that will run the drain if the sense water leaking into the lower tray. Last but not least, you could have a bad timer. these timers are covered for 5 years (parts only) from date of installation. The first 4 digits of the serial # will tell yuo when the machine was made the firts 2 are the year and the second 2 are the week of that year (so a serial beginning in 0145 woul;d mean built in the 45th week of 2001 and so on. Good luck!

Set a cycle, it will go around and around until manually turn the off button.... Nothing working, fills up, but does not spin.


Sounds like your circuit board has a problem. go to www.repairclinic.com. Look up washing machines and enter your model number, then a list of parts show up, they have a trouble shooting column. They have videos and the parts you will need.

Hello, my W6761 becomes the same. When it happens, you can clear the problem by "soft ware reset". Following is the procedure:
1. Power it on
2. Push Start/Stop buttom 5 times
3. Push "Enter", ">", "<", "Menu" buttons (from right to left)
4. Again, push "Enter", ">", "<", "Menu" buttons
5. Wait for 30 seconds that the above soft ware cycle resets the internal status
6. Toggle the power switch
7. You need to execute above "soft ware reset" within 15 seconds

Start washing and check to see if above reset the problem.
If it does not begin to work, repeat above "soft ware reset" cycle until it begins to work.
My W6761 once needed to repeat above cycle 7 times to solve the problem.
W6761 seems to be weak at high ambient temperature.

This problem happens in mostly in warmer season, so this will be related with high ambient or water temperature.

ASKO technician may replace the controller but even with the replaced controller, this problem often happens.

Asko 620 washing machine keeps filling


Sounds like your fill solenoid has stuck in the open position. There are 3 #20 Torx fittings along the back and you can lift off the top panel. The solenoid will be in the back left side.

I would shut off your house water supply to the machine and then do a voltage check to see if the solenoid is remaining energized. Another more simple option is to give the device a few light taps as some debris may have become trapped inside and caused it to become stuck open.

Asko W620 washing machine not spinning


Sounds like the motor brushes need to be cleaned or replaced. Take the back off the washer, remove the motor and gently scrape the excess carbon or debris off the brushes with a pocket knife. I did this and it ran well for about 50 loads before building back up. I am ordering new brushes now because when I checked the brushes last week they were obviously worn more than 4 weeks ago.
