Re: Any suggestions?

Sounds like you have a bad circulation pump. These are fairly easyt to get at once you pull the dishwasher out and remove the rear panel, but will set you back about $200 just for the pump (figure another$100-$200 to have it installed) The bummer about these is sometimes when the pump goes bad it takes the control board along with it, and thats another $300- $400 for just the part. I would suggest pulling the dishwasher out and getting to the 2 wires going to the pump andthen running the dishwasher. Check for 120volts at the 2 wires to the pump. here should be NO voltage until the dishwasher is done filling, then it should got to about 120 volts a few seconds after filling. If you have voltage before it is done filling, you have a stuck relay/ bad control board. If it does not give 120 volts after filling, you have a bad board as well. If the voltage is there when it should be and not there when it sholdnt be..then you just need a pump. The pump has a little release tab and a hose clamp that has to be cut off, then you rotate it to clockwise if i remeber correctly about 1/3 of a turn and it comes right out. Hope this helps!

Our dishwasheris a D1796. Does not have FI written on it. Appears take three hours to wash the dishers this morn. We have been away for the weekend and left it going whilst away.


Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description...and provided the dishwasher is indeed 1. an Asko D1796 ( the FI just means it's the same as yours except it's "fully integrated" )and 2. is filling with water, washing, heating and draining without any error extremely long cycle an manifest from poor draining or poor heating etc.

My first suggestion would be the need to perform a diagnostic/fault trace program by following the steps below to see what errors are present, if any.

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....


I'd pay particular attention to the heating and making sure your inlet water is hot.

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.

Water wont fill

first of all, i'm gonna guess that the water supply under the sink is turned on.
the water you hear is the left over water from a previous cycle. there is always some left in the hoses after it drains, just like your washer.
this is 1 of 2 things. either your float is stuck in the up position or your water inlet valve is malfunctioning. the float is the quick and easy fix. the float is somewhere inside your dishwasher. it tells the water to stop coming in when it reaches a certain height, just like your toilet. it could look like anything, but most likely a cone or a little hat. just grab it and try to move it up and down. it should slide freely. it was probably stuck up and your handling will have solved the problem. we hope.
if the float was ok, the inlet valve needs checked or replaced. it is under the machine and has the water supply line hooked up to it. good luck

My maytag dishwasher lower and upper spray arms are working intermittently. Sometimes there is plenty of water spraying around, other times, I can hear what sounds like the motor running but the arms are...

Pour 1 Cup of Muriatic Acid (Can be purchased at your local Pool Supply Store) into the bottom of the washer and a little in the soap dish. Run the Dishwasher through 5 cycles. Check to see If this helps. If not Try the same process with CLR house cleaner.

Lg dishwasher LDF model one week old makes a lot of noise

Not real sure about the 2H display , I'm inclined to believe it is showing the estimated time for the cycle. As far as the noise, I believe you are on the right track with the water theory, but without hearing it myself I'm not real sure. If it is in the very beginning of the cycle most dishwashers start the cycle with a drain or initial pump out cycle. This is designed to remove any leftover water etc from any previous cycle. Depending on how much water is left over it can make different sounds at the beginning of the cycle. If you have had the unit installed for a while, depending on water conditions(hardness,sediment silt etc.) it is possible that the screen on the inlet valve is clogged or your house water pressure to the valve may not be high enough to completely open the valve. It can be a little tricky to check these yourself, but you would have to turn off the water to the dishwasher check the screen in the valve and then check to see if you have enough water pressure and volume . If you have times when your water pressure might be lower(like when I am filling our koi pond at my house) the water pressure in the rest of my house is lower. At those times it might make some wierd noises while it is filling or might not fill to the proper level. I think I would check on those things before digging into disconnecting water lines and checking screens and stuff. Good Luck and reply back if you have more info that might help us narrow it down for you!

Dishwasher not always draining

If the dishwasher drains through the vent pipe on your sink it may be clogged. I had that problem as well. Unscrew the vent cap and look for junk. In my case of all things it was dog hair!!

Asko D1796 will not start properly

It sounds as if you may have A bad control board. It could be causing the heater element to come on when its not supposed to (usually a stuck relay) and not filling the machine with water. you could also have a bad control board AND a bad fill valve, as a stuck relay for the heater shouldn't affect the fill valve circuit. The bad news is that these asko control boards are $350 to $450 for just the part, the good news is that the control board is under a 5 year warranty (for only the part, not the labor to change it) as are the pump motors and any timers. Also, if you are just out of warranty, find your date of installation, as asko warranties start when you install it, not when you buy it (if you moved into the house and it was there when you moved in, and you are the first owner, submit a date of occupancy and that's when your warranty started)
