once this is done
clean and check out the drain traps {filter} for oose and coins etc etc
take out the soap drawer and clean it in the shower

then try the cycle again
and watch what soap you use
you can also run a 95deg boil cycle through on half load {econ mode} and stick a calgon tab in too give it all a good clean

Always saying low water pressure when I run a normal cycle... The valves are open all the way and there is no restrictions.

Asko 620 washer won't drain well with heavy load

Washing machine won't drain

When your washing machine won't drain, it could be as simple as a kinked hose or as complicated as a faulty impeller on the pump. Overloading your washing machine can cause items to be swept into the space between the inner and outer tub, leading to clogs in the drain hose or pump. These clogs may be the reason for why your washing machine won't drain. Here are some steps to help you determine the problem and solution:

1. Pinched hose: Is the drain hose at the back of the washer been flattened or twisted in any area? A pinched hose could prevent the water from draining thoroughly. Gently straighten the hose, and make sure there is sufficient room between the back of the washing machine and the wall to prevent a repeat of the problem.

2. Clogged drain hose or pump:
Does the drum spin normally, but the washing machine won't drain the water? Sometimes a piece of clothing, money, fabric or other debris gets into the water between the inner and outer tub. It may then make its way into a drain hose or even into the pump itself. The farther into the machinery a clog goes, the trickier it can be to remove. Call a repair professional for help.

3. Faulty timer: Does your machine fill with water and begin agitating, but the cycle never advances far enough to allow the water to drain? The timer that controls the cycles may be broken. Arrange for washing machine repair service.

4. Worn or loose belts: Are clothes still soaked at the end of a wash, even though the washing machine appears to go through the spin and drain cycles? The timer that controls the cycles may be broken. This is a job for the pros.

5. Faulty or jammed internal impeller on pump: When the spin cycle starts, do you hear a humming noise? The internal impeller that moves the water through the drain pump may be faulty or jammed. A grinding or grating sound is almost always an indication of a coin, button or other object colliding with the impeller. Have a washing machine repair expert determine if the impeller is jammed and can be cleared, or if the pump needs to be replaced.

6. Pump failure: Is your washing machine more than 7 years old? Your pump may simply have worn out. Even if it sounds as though it is running, the pump may not be working well enough to draw the water out of the machine. Replacement parts for pumps are generally unavailable. A new pump may be necessary.

For more troubleshooting steps, see Washing machine won't drain. I hope this helps!

Our clothes are coming out of the washer with a rotten smell. I have tried Tied Washing Machine cleaner and the vinegar/soda mix...but no change.

Try running a cycle, at highest level, with hot water. When the tub is about ready to drain, connect the drain hose to a water hose, and let it drain through the water hose to outside. See if the water has a smell / any "floaties" that may indicate a mold / mildew growing inside the agitator. You can try to over fill (fill to highest level, then add water using a bucket) with water and add a large amount of bleach. Let it sit overnight, and run a few cycles to rinse out the bleach residue

Have you noticed a similar smell from the hot water when taking a shower / doing dishes / washing hands? You could have bacteria growing in your water heater. Shocking it (with granulized bleach - see owners manual) will help clear this up. If you are on a well, you may also be getting sulfur or Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) into your well water as well.

Won't stop filling up with water

yes it's your pressure switch. It is either bad or you have a clog in the line from the tub to the switch. Open up your control panel and find the clear hose that attaches to the switch. Disconnect it and blow through it. You should be able to blow through this hose with no resistance. Re-connect and try a new load. If problem persists change the pressure switch.

your drain should have a backflow device in it. This can be very dangerous, you need a professional plumber ASAP.

Black bits in washer

well..that can be from the inside of the feeder hoses...

turn off water in back..

disconnect both hoses(most likely hot side)..

take them to shower/sink(utility type) and rinse them out..

might need to use a powerful stream to flush em.

then, reconnect, and run a cycle with only hot or cold(to test which one is causing the problem).

usually that black material is from inside of hoses.

can be from lines down below, so you may need to do same for those, but check feeder hoses first.
