We had a professional come and look at our dishwasher. Seems that the pump is not putting out enough pressure to spray the water sufficently. Thanks for your response.

Why is it not cleaning dishes?


Contact one of the Asko authorised repairers in your area and they will be able to tell you the likely cause provided the water in your machine is heating up to the correct temperature and not trying to wash luke warm and without the powder dissolving properly.

Set the machine for a hot wash and stop it and open the door mid wash cycle and check how hot the water is. It should be extremely hot and you should get a mass of steam rushing out when you open the door.

Dishes come out feeling gritty. Using Finish doesn't help


If you open the door immediately after the dishes are washed, and before the "dry" cycle, is the water hot enough to have "steam" coming out of the machine?
You should be able to feel the heat.
If not, perhaps the water is not getting hot enough to dissolve the dishwashing powder.
Could you try using a liquid soap once and see what happens?
Be blessed.

The detergent packet doesn't dissolve. The dishwasher seems to go through the cycles ... the dishes are wet. However I find the detergent packet in the bottom of the dishwasher.


Hello- Water flow, temperature, and pressure inside determine whether this little packet will dissolve.  Sump blockages or pump /motor weakness both effect amount water spraying inside. Some of these packets don't dissolve in time to enter wash water. Start by using powder or gel again. If it still leaves soap residue, other pump/motor issues exist. Let me know if this info helps- have more if needed. Thanks- ED

TOP DRAWER WHEN LOADED, DOES NOT GET WASHED


top tray not washing properly and tablets not dissolving are linked. On my FDW60 same problem was down to the top tray not being pushed fully home (tendency to use closing the door to push top home). This meant the flap of the tablet 'hatch' was stopped from fully opening by the tray, also poor water pressure to drive the rotating sparge bar on the underside of the top tray.
Be sure to push the top tray all the way home BEFORE closing the door, aaannd SPENT!

Powder not dissolving drain/inlet light sometimes flashes


I would guess the detergent door is open and the powder comes out so, If water is going in then the pump is not pumping.

Listen for the water to fill then after it stops open the door to make sure it's full of water. If no water or not enough then replace the water valve. If you have water then the pump is not pumping.

Dishwasher


2 things will lead to soap not dissolving, first is cold water, so make sure you have hot enough water. second and more likely is the dispenser is not opening at the proper time , instead fully opens at end of cycle during the dry cycle never even getting wet, and washing dishes with no soap, id replace the dispenser or make sure your not stacking items in front of dispenser hindering the opening. also powder is best, tabs and gelpack put undo stress on the dispenser door not always allowing full operation...

Soap does not seem to dissolve or clean


Probably a sticky dispenser door. Run for a few times with the dispenser open and put a tablet in the cultery basket
