Pump continually running with F2 displayed.


There is water in the lower pan that you must access by removing the toe kick plate and then the panel behind it. you will see water in the overflow area. Clean that out and all will be well. Asko's are awesome dishwashers that capture any water they may overflow or leak internally instead of it going on your floor, then a float switch triggers the F2 error and runs the drain pump.

Why does my dishwasher overflow with water when I am not using it?


Your dishwasher water valve is leaking water into the tub OR the dishwasher drain line is too low and sink water is draining back into the dishwasher.

Kenmore Limited Edition 665 15899 draining incorrectly through overflow at top of sink. Is something plugged? How to fix?


Usually this type of setup (overflow) has a plugged or restricted hose going from it to the drain (or disposer).
If disposer, it is very common to have this port plug up over time.

Overflow draining to the sink


it's supposed to drain out the same drain pipe your sink uses. If it is overflowing into your sink, then your drain pipe is clogged. Your sink probably overflows when your disposal runs too, right? Unclog your pipe and you're good to go.

I get water all over my counter when dishwasher gets rid of water. There is a feature on my sink of which water comes out. This just started...


Since this just started, I would suggest cleaning out the p-trap under your sink. If your sink drains sluggishly without a pump, then your dishwasher will overflow your drain pipes with its pump.
Also, try facing any air gap opening into the sink.
If the pipes are clear, you may need to add a length of pipe between the air gap on the sink and the 'y' connector that the drain lines are connected to. This will help keep any splashing water from 'climbing' out of the sink-top vent. Good luck

The waste water backs up into the dishwasher when sink is plugged


Dishwasher manufacturers recommend a syphon break be fitted - but usually there is not a problem if your sink has an overflow pipe incorporated.

You have a partially blocked drain - causing wastewater to flow into the dishwasher instead.

Use 1/2 a cup of caustic soda or proprietary drain cleaner down the sink drain. Add about a pint of water, and leave overnight.
Next morning pour a full boiling kettle down the drain which should move things on and clear the drain.
You may have to repeat this process once, but is preferable to taking your pipework apart - which is next if this does not clear it.

Dishwasher does not drain, instead drains through overflow valve in sink. No apparent clog seen.


Usually the sink connection is not an overflow, it is the main drain from the dishwasher. It is more likely your s-bend is blocked under the sink- try putting a bucket under it and unscrewing the u-shaped piece and cleaning out (remember don't wash it in that sink while the pipe is off)

DIshwasher drains at the top of the sink? How do I fix?


Sounds like the drain hose is blocked and it's using the overflow like it should. Take the hose off and flush it.

Simple solution. DO NOT spend the money on a tech coming to the house.
This error code comes from getting too much water in your machine, either from a dish filled with water emptying, or perhaps a clog from the sink that prevents your machine from draining. It is meant to prevent overflows from too much water being in the tub. It is a simple fix though!
First of all you should at least shut the power off on your machine. For the effort of a couple of more steps, it wouldn't hurt to shut the breaker off at the fuse panel. You will have to unscrew the undercounter tabs that mount the dishwasher to the countertop. They are located just under the counter sticking out from the top of the dishwasher when the door is open. Then proceed to pull out the dishwasher from under the counter. You will only have to pull it out about half way and you will find the overflow valve. It is located on the right side of the dishwasher just under the insulation and level with the lower hinge on the door. (Right side when you are looking at the machine.)
There are two overflow valves. One looks like a small cup, the other looks like a cylinder with a float in it like your toilet. Both of them have black rubber covers near the bottom. Take these covers off and about a quarter cup of water will flow out of these overflow basins. Allow them to completely empty, then replace the rubber drain covers and then replace the unit under the counter.
Once you turn the power on, the error code should be cleared and you are ready to use the dishwasher again.
