Asko 20.1 won't stop pumping unless I turn it off at the wall switch.


this happened to my D3111 and, sure enough, there was a split in the water outlet hose and the water overflow raised the polystyrene float block.
6 months later th same symptoms occurred but the inner base was dry. I took off the lower front panel under the door and found the water level (3 terminal) microswitch had burnt out, probably from running too long. Easy to replace if you can hunt down the $2 switch (brand name Zippy, 6 AMP)

My dishwasher won't empty


This condition is commonly caused by:

- Drain pump jammed

When you wash your clothes, any small objects (e.g. hair pins, coins etc) are flushed down the drain pipe but often get jammed in the drain pumps impellar (this is the tiny propeller on the pump).

Firstly, place a bucket on the floor....then lower your drain hose (from your tub) into the bucket - the gravity will naturally drain the water into the bucket. Be careful to raise the hose and empty the bucket each time, until the machine is empty. Remove any wet clothes from machine (you will need the bowl to be emptied).

Once empty, you can now check the drain pump.

Turn the machin off at the power.

Locate the drain pump cover (usually near the drain hose, on the back or side). Place a large towel on the floor beneath the pump cover (as remaining water will escape onto the floor). Unscrew the drain pump cover and allow the water to drain (if your pump cover contains a filter, then clean everything from this filter).

Then, look inside the drain pump cavity for anything obstructing the little propeller (remove any objects). Insert your finger inside the cavity and rotate the little propeller - you should feel a resistance, similar to a rubber band.

Re-install the drain pump cover (or filter) and ensure it is sealed properly. Turn ON at the wall.

Fill your bucket with water (from tub) and pour into your machine.

Turn machine ON, and select the last SPIN (or drain) cycle and check if machine now drains correctly. If ok, then problem now solved and you can put the clothes back into the machine for a final rinse/spin.

If machine still not draining after inspecting the drain pump, then you may have a suspected faulty drain pump - a technician can run a diagnostic process on your machine's control pad to find the diagnostic codes.

Please do let me know, if the above process helps you solve this.

Cheers,

Won't drain completely


Check the inlet to the pump for blockage, make sure that the outlet pipe is not kinked, that there is nothing obstructing the pipe and that the pump is actually operating. Check the filter to see if it is not clogged or obstructed. If possible back flush through the outlet pipe and try draining the machine once more before using it again.

D1976 machine won't do anything but pump out.


The flood switch must have tripped. This is likely to happen if there is a water leakage.

If you can pull the dishwasher out (after turning off the power and water connections) and tilt it on one side. Wait a little (to let the switch dry up) and then turn it on.


Hope this helps.

My Kitchenaid model KURD25SHBL0 dishwasher is not draining. Drain line is clear, wash cycle runs fine, and there is no obstruction to overfill sensor. Can hear pump runnng during drain cycle but no...


Usually the wiring won't affect the direction of the pump turn. It is more likely that the fins on the drain pump empellar are damaged.

My Maytag diswasher legacy 300 does not drain . Water back up & spill overt the kitchen counter top. What shall I do ?


Hello,

There are several reasons why a washing machine won't drain or spin. The cause could be something as easy as a clog or something difficult that will need a licensed repairman. Start with the simplest possible cause and work down to the more difficult causes.

Find some possible cause and how to solve the problem:

A washing machine won't spin if the water can't drain. Check hoses for any kinks or clogs that may prevent the water from draining. If a hose has kinks, try to straighten out the kinked hose. If it can't be straighten sufficiently, replace the hose. If hoses are not kinked, check for clogged hoses. This can be done by using the screwdrivers to remove the hoses and looking for clogs or running a water hose through the clogged hose to remove the clog. Use the rags and bucket to clean up the water that comes out of the hoses when they are disconnected. Once the clog is cleared, put the drain hose back into place. The washer should drain and spin now if a clogged or kinked hose was the problem.

If the washer still won't drain or spin, check to see if the lid is not closing all the way or if the lid switch is not clicking into place. Close the lid and make sure that it closes all the way down. When the lid closes, the lid switch should click. If there is no clicking sound, then the switch may need to be replaced. Follow manufacturer's directions for replacing the switch. If the lid does not close all the way, visually check for signs that the lid is bent. If bent, try to bend it back into place.

Loose or broken belts could also prevent a washing machine from draining or spinning. Pull the washer away from the wall and, using the screwdrivers and wrenches, remove the back panel. Using the flashlight, visually check for any broken or loose belts. Replace any broken or loose belts. Although replacing washing machine belts is difficult, anyone who has replaced belts on a car, lawn mower or even a bicycle chain should be able to accomplish the task.

Another possibility for a washing machine to not spin or drain is the pump. With the back panel still off the washer, check the pump with the voltmeter to ensure that the pump is getting power. If the washer is getting power, turn on the washer and listen to find out if the pump is running but the water is still not draining. It may be necessary to remove the pump and clean it or to replace the pump with a new one. Once the pump is replaced, turn on the washer to determine if it will now drain and spin.

If all of the above steps fail to produce a washing machine that drains or spins, then it is time to call a professional repairman. Use the screwdrivers and wrenches to replace the panel on the washer and push it back against the wall.

I hope the above helps;

Good luck.

Circulation pump is stuck


Hello Stonegroup,
The impeller is located below the bottom filter trap. Remove the tray and at the twelve 'O' Clock position you will see a small opening. Inside there are the pump impellers. take the Hackenschlussel (Hook spanner/Miele tool) and insert it in the opening and turn. You should turn it a few times and be able to feel the impellers free up. Also, Make sure you run the dishwasher atleast once a monch to avoid the circulation pump getting stuck like this
