Overfill protection tripping

The overfill protection on my D3250 keeps tripping continiously.I`ve checked the floater and microswitch at the bottom of the machine,theese works ok. Is there anything else causing the flood protection to activate? There is a pressure switch behind the drain pot, what`s the purpose of this? When turning on the machine the drain pump starts after a few seconds, and after about a minute the light starts flashing. I`ve cleaned out all the water,and know this is not the problem.

Re: Overfill protection tripping

Is there water in the drip pan? My asko developed a leaky inlet solenoid, which would fill the drip pan eventually causing a failure. If the water evaporated, the washer would run. Normally, there should be no water in the drip pan.

Re: Overfill protection tripping

Seems like the machine fills too much water. Try to reduce your water pressure a bit, and try it again. But just a bit!

Will not fill

Check the overfill protection device (looks like upside down cup on the bottom) check the voltage to the fill valve.

Door is leaking

The first thing I would check is the overfill protection float. Check under the float for objects that may keep the protector from moving up or down.

Runs when not turned on

Typically, the unit will activate its empty pump if a fault is detected and it needs to protect from a potential overfill/floood that has either happened, or MIGHT happen. Most commonly, the machine has detected a leak when the float in the base of the machine has tripped a microswitch because there is water in the base. Turn off at the mains, pull the machine out (I appreciate this is a pain as it's integrated!) tip back 45 degrees and water will probably run out of the base. This will correct the error state and the machine will then run again. Of course, it probably WON'T fix the leak that caused the problem in the first place. If you can get it running at this stage, get the side off and set the machine on a wash while it's still pulled out from inder the work surface, get a torch and go looking for the leak!

What does F2 mean

Hello, Welcome to FixYa. To answer your question..."What does F2 mean ?", the good news...It is likely nothing very serious, but the "resolve" requires some investigation on your part. F2 means the control has indicated a overfill. This is meaning the overfill switch is indicating an overfill has been detected. Whether the unit has actually overfilled or not remains to be seen. It may in fact have been caused by a long drain or backed up drain. I'm presently on my iphone so I can't post the pertinent info to resolve the error directly, however if you copy and paste this link to your browser all the info will be there and it will apply to your model Asko as well. Either that or visit my profile page and you'll see other post relating to the Asko F2 error, its meaning and remedy. Hope this helps, let me know and good luck. Regards, Macmarkus :)

A E4 comes up water seems to be in bottom and there does not seem to be a drying mode...

E4 is overfill protection error . If that happens on drain, then it is a drain problem.

Try first tripping circuit breaker and dry water in the tub using a sponge.

Check the drain well and the filter.
Ensure drain hose at the back is not kinked.
Access pump hose , undo it and look for blockage.
Check the water level device. This is usually a float switch, on some model you also have a pressure switch.

ASKO 1385 not filling after overfill protection was turned on

If when turned on the dishwasher sounds like it is running the drain pump, and does this in any cycle setting, it is possible that the drain pan below the unit has filled with water. Check this post for more details.

E4 fault code

Hi, when a dishwasher goes into overfill mode it usually means that the bottom tray has water in it that operates a float connected to a microswitch. Open the bottom panel and soak up all water then check to make sure the float is down completely.then restart dishwasher. Why it has overfilled is another problem. It could be a faulty pressure switch,pressure switch hose may have a hole in it, water valve may be faulty. Too much soap or wrong soap can cause too many suds and hence overfill.Also if rinse aid is spilt when filling. Or seals leaking. etc.

Kenmore Elite Dishwasher - leaks from Overfill Protection Float

I had the same problem, but mine leaked every time. I have a kenmore ultra wash dishwasher no. 665.15762. I took the bottom rotating sprayer off and found that the plastic piece under the sprayer had a few loose screws and the rubber gasket, under that piece, had blown out at the corner facing the overfill protection float. I took out all the screws and re-mounted the gasket in place and put all the screws back and tightened them. It solved the problem. I hope that this helps others.

Overfill Protection tripped on ASKO D3112 dishwasher

Remove the backpanel of the machine, and look if there is water at the bottom of the machine. If so, use a towel or so to dry up the water. This should solve the prob.

Asko 1796 F2 problem

It sound like you have a blocked or a malfunction pump. Remove the pump from the machine and check whether you have a clogged inside the pump or in one of the pipes connected to it. In case all is clean, you should replace the pump.. Good luck !
