Question about Asko D1776 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Asko dishwasher Rotu emailed with some helpful info, so here is the additional you requested. The dishwasher continues to fill as long as the water is turned on to the appliance and then it will drain. For some reason this cycle continues. The repairman said it needed a new control board. Is this the case and is there anything else I can do?

    I have an ASKO 1855 with the same problem:

    As soon as I turn power on, it starts filling. The washing chamber overfills, and water leaks thorugh the door and down to the bottom pan. This trigges the micro switch for the drain pump, leaving the dishwasher both filling and draining at the same time.

    - I get both the F1 and the F2 error message.

    - Disconnecting the fill valve wires stops the filling <--- indicates that fill valves are ok.

    - Drain pump works fine.

    - The dishwasher seems to be able to process its programs normally, untill the washing chaber overfills and triggers an error code and the scenario described above.

    My theory:

    Valves, pumps, sensors/switches are all ok. Logic part of the control board also ok. The part of the control board that activates the rill valve is defect. Do not yet know if this is a relay or some form of electronic switch, or the driver circuit for such.

    Will post solution when I know more.

    The motor (?) of the 1805 suddenly started running when I opened the door to put dishes in. No water or fill, though. All lights were flashing simultaneously and nothing happened when I pushed any button. Couldn't start a regular cycle or stop whatever is going on. And still no water. Whether i leave the door open or shut, the motor/pump just keeps running and nothing else happens. Had to turn off the big power button to make it stop.

You could have a bad fill valve that doesnt close. Try unplugging the unit or turning off the power at the cuircuit breaker. (not the power button) If it still fills when you turn on the water, it just has a bad fill valve. If it does not fill, take apart the door and check for broken wires at the lower left corner and see if the wiring is shorted together. If it is not, you may have a stuck relay on the control board. Sometimes those realy stick, and if you can get to the board (located in the upper left corne of the door) you can tap on the relays with a small hammer or screwdriver handle one at a time (with the unit unplugged!) and some times they will unstick and be fine. Very low tech, I Know...but you are trying to avoid a board replacement. Good Luck!

Asko D3530 Dishwasher Water Inlet Fault

I did research on the net and asko mention a special settings menu in the pdf manuals available
you can download a manual but there is a reference to water not entering the washer in the manual and how to trouble shoot it
Pressure pumps deliver water at pressures from 35 psi to 60 psi and if you have checked all of the slow fill reasons , maybe checking the on/off pressure switch for the pump would be a place to investigate
the machine will start when the water has reached the level set
anyway go google and type in - workshop manual for asko dishwasher model d3530 --and download a pdf version to read

D1876 Asko dishwasher doesn't fill. It runs fine if I manually fill the unit with a couple of pitchers of water. Likely culprits seem to be a faulty water level sensor or water fill valve. Any...


Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description and provided the dishwasher is indeed 1) an Asko D1876 and 2) not filling with water...It sounds like a faulty fill valve/water valve unfortunately.

First though, you can perform a diagnostic/fault trace program by following the steps below. You should hear the valve starting once the unit has started filling with water.

You'll need to be familiar with the control layout for the test to begin. This is how the buttons/display is identified in the diagnostic...


Now you can enter the fault trace by way of the following sequence....


Obviously based on the instructions if you push S3 the valve should open and allow water into the tub, this image below indicates the normal water level to look for when filling in the normal cycle NOT FAULT TRACING...Fault trace will fill until you stop it.


This unfortunately is common with Asko built dishwasher`s, but it can be fairly easily repaired with a little direction/know-how.

**First turn off the water and the power to the first**

You should only need to remove the toe panel/kick plate at the bottom and of course turn your water and power off, undo the water line at the valve,



...remove the two torx screws ( large arrow ) and then the delivery hose at the back of the valve ( small arrow ) and install the new one.

The new valve is part # 8801351 and available at on-line parts depot "" for about $170USD last time I looked.

Let me know what you find and I'll try and help you move forward from may opt to call in a pro but that's up to you.

I'll watch for your reply.

I have an asko dishwasher that doesn't fill enough

two things either a clogged inlet water valve located at the bottom of the machine where the water hooks up to the dishwasher, there is a filter screen in the body of the valve, need to take valve off to access where the screen is. Second, could be a bad water level switch, but I would suspect the screen first this is most of the time, the problem

Hope this helped

Asko 1350 fill problem.

Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve if found to be defective.

Now, if the valve is ok, replace the control.

In most cases, this will be a control fault.

Asko D1716 dishwasher problem

I also have an Asko D1716 dishwasher. The water stopped flowing. I replaced the water inlet valve and I have another problem, but the replacement of the fill valve is now letting in water. You can call Asko at 1-800-898-1879 to order the parts. If you order from Asko, I'm told you have some warranty on the parts. Anyway, the screws take a star drive and there is a front plate and back plate you will need to remove. There are approx. 4 screws on the front and 4 screws on the back. Just remember to unplug it before starting any work. The fill valve is in front of the machine. There are 2 screws holding it in place from the front. You will need to remove it out the back though to replace it since the fill tube to the tub is short and it wont allow you to pull it out the front. The repair is really easy once you get started.

Hope this helps,

Dishwasher overfilling

I have been working on ASKO for several years and have never seen one fill and drain at the same time. Usually if it drains and cannot be stopped, it is because there is water in the lower tray that needs to be removed or left to evaporate, and then it needs to be figured out why the water was there in the first place. If you could post back with more info (does it fill, sit for a while, then drain, or is it doing both at once) I would be glad to help. Good Luck!
