My Asko 12505 washer keeps heating the water and will not stop. It has even melted the drawer for soap and softener. What can I do?


Stop using it. You are risking a fire or electrocution. Since parts have been melted, I would suggest replacing the whole machine.

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 12505 washer no power replaced fuses still no power door will not open just nothing


Can you access where the power cord goes into it? If so measure voltage at any /all connections. Also look for anything obvious, wires broken, disconnected, burned etc. Hope it's an easy fix.

It's probably the heater, or the thermostat. You must have a serviceman to fix that:)

I have a 12505 also. It is a 220VAC unit. There are two fuses that are intended to be accessible from the rear. On our unit, these blow every few years and need to be replaced. The unit shows no signs of life when they go. The fuse holders tend to disintegrate from the heat, so I have had to replace these multiple times also.
