Asko d3120 flashing coffee cup

Asko d3120 has flashing coffee cup. Some sort of motor or pump running continuously. Tub empty? Even when I open the dishwasher, the motor or pump noise just keeps going, and when I close the dishwasher, the coffee cup just keeps flashing.

The owner's manual refers to error codes F1-F6, but this dishwasher does not seem to have anything on it that could indicate any of these codes. Does anyone know what the flashing coffee cup means?

I had to slide the dishwasher forward (undercounter installation)and tip it forward as far as possible. Water leaks onto floor, but then the internal controller seems to reset and the ASKO now works normally again. What kind of idiot would design a control module that does not incorporate a power-off interlock? FAIL FAIL FAIL - Bad, ASKO, Bad. Go to your room.

The float switch or sensor seems to be stuck or tricked by the water in the tray below which is making the pump run continuously. I slid the washer out, removed the back panel, and mopped up all the water from underneath. When I plugged it back in the dishwasher worked as normal. What caused the leak I still have no idea.

Your trick works. I pulled the unit out and tipped it, while being careful not to break the attached hoses, and this reset the unit.

Thanks, solution worked for me too. Dishwasher pump would continuously run as if it was draining but no visible water left in bottom. also had the flashing cup. Turning off at wall did not work. Pulled the whole unit out and tipped it forward, water everywhere but removing the excess water worked! Works fine now. Cheers

Asko fifteen eighty five dishwasher completes cycle, but the drain cup area still has water in it.


The drain cup normally has water in it after it drains. The pump runs it empty, but when it stops, some water runs back down from the drain hose, which you see in the drain cup. If there is water in the bottom of the tub, you may be having some siphoning coming back after draining. Check to make sure the drain hose has been routed up to the bottom of the countertop as per the installation instructions. That's what prevents siphoning, and its very important so it doesn't suck sewer water back in with the clean dishes!!

Hi Donald, Asko D3120 pump motor runs non stop.


Seems to be the fault with the control panel as it is possible that the drive relay stays triggered as soon as the power is switched on. All you need to is to remove the panel and check for a short in the power line output to the pump motor. Please check this link for tips to remove; Check how to remove the control panel: http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/dishwashers/a/3/1287/how-to-replace-a-hotpoint-dishwasher-fascia-p.html Use a multi-meter without which you will not be able to confirm the case. DO NOT BUY A NEW BOARD unless you have tested the board to confirm if the processor has failed or if this is a SCR or relay then it can be replaced.I would suggest that if there is a similar model with any contact or even from the service center where it can be swapped and tested or even tested on bench by simulation if you are familiar with the input connections.If none of the functions work then it is possible that the motherboard is faulty. Take estimate and decide.Compliments of the season.

Doesn't shut off


i think you are hearing the drain pump going. take the bottom front panel off so as to expose the bottom tray. yoy willprobably find this full of water. mop water out and it should work. if fault reoccurs then you have a leak.
turn power off first

Remove the lower panel at the back of the machine. If there is water on the bottom pan, wipe it up with a towel or so, and the machine schould be like new again ;-)

Remove the backpanel of the machine, and look if there is water at the bottom of the machine. If so, use a towel or so to dry up the water. This should solve the prob.

Dishwasher fault


I got this with another dishwasher. On that one it meant the water wasn't feeding into it (tap switched off, kink in inlet tube, etc.)
