Asko w6221 front load washer stops after wash cycle

A couple of weeks ago i cleaned under my washer with a brush designed to clean out under major appliances. Ever since that time my washer has stopped after the wash cycle. I have to manually change the dial to the rinse cycle in order to get my clothes rinsed. This works just fine but my clothes are not getting the highest quality rinse they get with the regular rinse cycle. I didn't know if there was some switch on the bottom of the machine i possible messed up and I need to get some muscle in to tilt the machine so I can flip this switch??? I need some guidance please

Re: asko w6221 front load washer stops after wash cycle

Do all of your cycles work when you turn them manually? If one cycle does not work when you turn the dial on it then it will be your timer (The dial assembly $100-up) If all your cycles work manually, then it could be your timer motor which is attached to your timer assembly. If you turn the dial pass the wash, on to the rinse, does the dial automaticly move (when finishng the rinse cycle)to the spin cycle? If so then your timer motor is ok. The only wires close to the bottom are the motor, but these should be high enough out of the way.

I have an Asko front load washer W6221. I have

I had identical problem. I diagnosed it to be the motor brushes on the front of the motor. They have an off switch in them when they get worn out. Easy to check and replace. Remove front lower panel (two torx 20 screws). Brushes are visible and are held with two screws each. One on each side of motor. Remove two screws on each brush and unattach wire. Two new motor brushes were around $75. Literally tooke 30 minutes to replace. Hope this is your issue!

Clothes smell.

Mold, mildew and other fun things use washers as a breeding ground. Clean your machine with a generous amount of white vinegar run through a cycle. Or there is a product called Affresh you can buy at Lowes or Home Depot.

Machine wont drain and the door wont open

The solution worked thank you, drained machine and cleaned out trap as per chapter 10 of user manual and all working fine now. Note: ensure to check up the inlet line in the trap with your finger as there could be some items in there, also check fan/prop to ensure it turns freely. Was amazed of what I found in the trap see picture below, pays to check pockets prior to washing.

Asko W620 washing machine not spinning

Sounds like the motor brushes need to be cleaned or replaced. Take the back off the washer, remove the motor and gently scrape the excess carbon or debris off the brushes with a pocket knife. I did this and it ran well for about 50 loads before building back up. I am ordering new brushes now because when I checked the brushes last week they were obviously worn more than 4 weeks ago.

Try to replace the motor brushes. This is the most usual problem on these machines.

Good Luck
