Question about Asko D1716 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Failure to drain

The machine has stopped draining - through each cycle it re-ses the same water (well the level in the machine doesn't rise - but no water his released through the drain hose!) If I manually remove water from the machine - it takes on more! I can suck water from the end of the drain hose - so assume that means that the hose itself is not kinked or blocked

Re: failure to drain

Ok push the rinse and hold button 5 times in a row within 15 second. That should put it in diagnostic mode (the lights will flash) Then, push the Heated dry button once and close the door. The drain pump should run. If it does not, turn the unit off for at least 15 secondsn then turn it back on and try again. Also, if it is in the middle of a cycle, you should cancel out of it, then turn the power off, then back on before doing any of this. Ok if the drain pump does not run when you close the door, you either have a bad drain pump, a bad control board, or a broken wire between the two. Pull the outer cover off the door by removing all the screws down both edges, and loosining the screws on the top. also, you need to remove the two screws in the lower ceenter of the inner door. Once you have done this, look for any broken wires inside the jumble of wires near the bottom right corner of the door. If you dont find any , take the lower cover off under the unit and check for power at the drain pump while the door is closed and in this diagnostic mode. If no power and the wires are good, you have a bad control board. If there is power but the pump doesnt run, you need a drain pump (about $45) and you can get it by calling the parts department at 1 303 646 8952. Hope you can follow all this and good luck!

What does the code F1 means?

On Fisher and Paykel.

F1 on a fisher paykel is in fact a water/flooding issue. But in your case you said it was running fine at the old location and now you have problems. Just be sure of a few hings.
1. The drain hose does not rise above the machine.
2. The drain hose doesn't just run straight down from the bottom of the machine.
Make sure your drain hose is mounted at a level that is a little above the middle of the dishwasher. High hoses cause back flow and too low of hoses can cause constant draining.
I think you may be constantly draining the machine. just be sure the hose is positioned correctly let it come from the bottom of the machine rise almost to the top and then back down. in a hump shape. (this should be mounted like this from the factory on the side of the machine but just check to make sure.)
Also be sure your water is on. I know this sounds obvious but it happens more often than people think. The f1 code could be coming from you not getting any water in the machine. There is a water level sensor built into it. and if the water valve is open for a while and then detects no water after a while it will throw the f1 code. mainly because the machine thinks its filling but the water level sensor says its not therefore the machine thinks it is leaking out.
Check your water.
Check your hose.
Check to make sure there isn't anything plugging the hoses.
Check that there isn't any water sitting under your machine by all its motors and wires.
Check that you have it level
If all this checks out good then you may have an actually problem machine. But i think its just fine. You may have just overlooked a step while installing it. get it all adjusted and you'll be golden. Hope this helps you!

Dishwasher stops working a few minutes after being started

Make sure the water is turned on to the unit first--next, is there water entering the tub? Check the float switch--the round, plastic, "flying saucer" shaped object at the bottom of the tub. Gently lift up on it and carefully listen for a very soft "click" sound. That is the tiny switch underneath working. If something gets trapped under the float switch, the washer won't fill with water. Next, if water is indeed in the tub, did you hear the motor pump running? If it runs and then stops, there might be a problem with the control board--check to see if the drain pump works properly--cancel the cycle and listen for the drain pump turning on and draining out all the water. On almost all dishwashers, at the start of a cycle, the drain pump will turn on briefly to pump out any standing water left in the motor base(you can't see the water but it's there) so it doesn't get sprayed onto your dishes. Then, fresh, hot water enters the tub, when the water level reaches the proper level, the float switch rises, tells the computer enough water is present, then starts the main pump. If the water is not being drained out, try to listen for the drain motor humming. If it is running but not draining, it is probably jammed with food or other debris and must be cleared. If the water is turned on but no water is entering the tub, check the inlet water valve underneath the washer--the water line is connected directly to it. It is electrical and operates on 120v. You will need to carefully disconnect the connector from the valve, activate a cycle, and using a voltage meter, check to see if 120 volts is present. If it is there and no water is entering, most likely the valve is bad. If there is no voltage at the valve, either a wire is broken or the main board is defective.

How to reset Whirlpool dishwasher ADP 6342; it stopped working and cancel button is blinking 8 times

F8 failure (slow/no draining)

In a consumer cycle, the appliance is indicating F8 E1 (slow/no draining). This is because of wrong signals from the circulation pump read by the control board and interpreted as "water present", when there is no water. During draining (and in fact, there is no water), the failure occurs.

1. Check if drain hose is not closed/clogged
2. Drain pump faulty, harness or wiring faulty, control board faulty
3. If machine is equipped with OWl, issue might be caused by damaged or dirty OWl. Clean the sensor lenses then , if issue is not solved, replace OWI (optical water indicator).

Hi, i've taken the top and sides off my Bosch dish washer sgs45e02gbas it has not been working. the problem is ....when you switch it on is there is a pumping/throbing noise but doesn't continue...

Hello Phillip,

The reason only the pump runs anytime its powered up is because the flood detector has detected water in the base of the dishwasher and until that water is gone only the pump will run.That flood detector is (when looking at it from the front) is in the left front corner,its a styrofoam disc with a rod in the center of it and has floated up activating the flood switch on the letf side wall where the water enters the tub (can be seen on the left side with side panel removed) if thier is no water in the base frame perhaps some foreign object has wedged itself under the sytrofoam disc holding it up. Until the water is out of the base frame only the pump will run as long as the flood switch is tripped.

Possible things that will make water be in the base frame are,
oversuds from too much detergent
a leak of any component or hose
a defective water level switch allowing it to overfill

Water in the bottom of the tube the drain hose is fin no kinkys or clog is there a internal filter in side the washer

It's normal for there to be about a hoseful of water left in the sump at the bottom of the machine after the cycle is over - it happens because the drain pump only works on water, so is never able to blow the last slug of water through the hose. Once the pump stops, this water runs back into the machine.

The sump is designed to be big enough to hold this amount of water without the level rising high enough to come back into the main cabinet, but in some machines you can see to the bottom if you look in the right place.

The installation instructions for the dishwasher will have had lots to say about size and position of the standpipe the drain hose goes into. Failure to follow these can increase the amount of water that runs back at the end of a cycle, so that might be worth a quick look if you think the quantities are excessive.

After dishwasher completes cycle, it starts again. It will keep going unless we stop it.

If the cycle does not stop that is usually because of a faulty water level sensor. The floater that controls the water level in your appliance.The faulty sensor cause the machine to think that there is still water inside, even when water has drained completely. Check if sensor is stuck or if switch is faulty.Some machine may use a membrane switch instead of a floater.

Dishwasher; Diplomat 8322. Set it to wash on any temperature but after a minute it defaults to rinse and bleeps constantly

Apparently there is a sensor above the normal water level where it drains. The water level rises above the sensor if the filter is full of gunge and the water cannot drain properly. The sensor is activated and stops the cycle. You have to remove the filter mesh, clean it, drain out the excess water (I did this with a turkey baster!) and replace the filter. Then everything works again!

Water drains out during wash cycle

it's being sucked out by siphoning through your sewer pipe .Probably a siphon problem . Check your drain hose to make sure hose is not stuffed too far down drain and air can get between the hose and the drain pipe . If you have tapped the hose to the drain to keep water from coming out the drain pipe , go to home depot or an appliance parts house , and get a siphon break . When a washer fills , but water level doesn't rise in the machine ,

KitchenAid dishwasher allows water to drain while washing

Your dishwasher is siphoning the water out. The drain hose should turn upward, nearly to the bottom side of the counter top, before it attaches to the drain or disposal. If it has an independant drain it still needs the rise and also needs an air break to stop the siphoning.
