Question about Asko Washing Machines

1 Answer

Asko W640 - sporadically says motor fault and won't run, or, won't stop running, gets stuck on the spin cycle. We've had the motor fault problem before, but this "running on" issue is new. Also Dryer - T760, we had to undo the heater unit connectors to replace a belt and now the dryer won't warm up to dry clothes. Is their a schematic of the wiring order we could follow?

I would say the won't-run problem is separate from the run-on problem. You can live with the run-on problem -- probably a fault in the controller. Unless it's a faulty code, the motor-fault light probably means the motor is overheating. That can be caused by anything that causes it to work hard, such as a stuck pump.

Asko 20004 washes but won't spin


This is a motor fault issue. As I don't know your ability in repairing or what tools you possess. Simple solution: other then have a repairman do this, the motor has something causing a fault. The vast majority of times in an asko because the motors spin at high speeds then most others is that the brushes wear out. So they most likely need a repair. Turn off machine, remove motor replace brushes. There other possibilities such as electrical problems but I reckon brushes are the problem, could cost $60 for the pair and takes maybe an hour or two depending the skill of the person attempting. This is not complex just dirty I do not endorse repairing any appliance without proper experience in repairing appliances. This is only informative.

Had a "wash motor fault" in July 2007, had a


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

This can be associated with worn brushes in the motor or a sign of a damaged spot on the motor armature, hence when you spun the drum off of the dead/damamged part the unit began to operate.

If capable one can remove the rear panel, and with the aid of a flashlight inspect the brushes and armature.

I'm surprised how often I hear of these motors being replaced when in most cases a new set of brushes will remedy the problem...alas I guess there is more profit for technicians for relatively the same amount of work in replacing a motor.

Let me know if the problem re-occurs or if you'd like a service guide into inspecting the components I alluded to.

Thank you.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Asko W640 water outlet fault


If you get the water fault after checking the lower drain, you may need to remove the drain hose in the back. Usually there is a dime in the hose or the hard part right before the hose.

Fault indication: water inlet fault


see if there is a blockage in the level switch. the switch operates on air pressure within the dip tube and the diaphragm in the switch. there may be a spider's nest in the tube or a wasp's nest in the tube.

Asko W600 spin cycle not working


Check the brushes oin the motor. It's the most normal fault when this problem appears. Not a big thing to fix for a technician!

Spin cycle trouble


possibly a segment has raised on the motor armature or a faulty motor brush. pop off the belt and put it into a spin cycle to see if you still hear the noise- if so the fault is with the motor as the drum will be still. any scraping sounds in the drum may be a lost bra wire.
