Question about Asko 1385 Dishwasher

1 Answer

Asko 1385 dishwasher spray arm doesn't stop when door is opened

It runs so quiet that people don't think it's on, so they open it to put something in and get sprayed. Are schematics available so I can trace the failure?

Dishwasher activates, fills the base with water, heats, turns off. Soap remains in door..I can not hear arm moving..what would u think is the problem?


make sure nothing is below bottom rack holding spray arm from turning..if not clean out the sump by removing lower rack ..you can open the door fast when the dishwasher is running and see if it is spraying and see how hard ..

Dishwasher is not washing the dishes. Motor sound like it comes on, Water is drained aout and put in but it appears no rinsing or washing goes on. Don"t hear the arms rotating either. It goes thru the...


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description and provided the dishwasher is indeed 1) an Asko D1776 and 2) filling with water, draining, heating, but not circulating, It sounds like a busted wash impeller within the main motor/circulation pump, as you mentioned. What you may not know, is the impeller itself is not serviceable, the entire motor/pump must be replaced unfortunately.

Before declaring it is indeed a motor/impeller issue, you said you hear a quiet sound of a motor starting once the unit has completed filling with water right ? Be sure the unit is actually filling with water, this image below indicates the normal water level to look for....

The pump will be super quiet if the wash impeller is broke as I suspect it may be...almost like a fountain, since the Asko are very quiet under normal conditions. You will have to either get right down with your ear to the bottom or run it with the door open by activating the door switch with a screw-driver and look for visual/audible clues. (try placing both spray arms at 12 o'clock position and placing a cup upright in the top rack. If the arms move and the cup fills, you've got circulation...if neither, you don't)

If so that is a tell tale of no wash action yet the motor runs, hence broken impeller. If you don't hear anything it may be a wire come off the main motor/circulation pump or severed somewhere between the motor and control, maybe where the door pivots during opening...but not likely.

This unfortunately is common with Asko built dishwasher`s and it is a case of being a victim of their own design.

What happens typically is the ball-bearings from the upper rack holders ( which are plastic, hence fatigues due to heat and fall apart ) come out making their way into the sump, hence breaking the wash impeller from the motor.

Let me know what you find and I'll try and help you move forward from there. If you need direction to remove the circulation motor and pump I can do that, but it is a pretty involved repair and requires pulling the unit from the cabinet. Check those other possibilities first and tell me what you find.

I'll watch for your reply.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

The spray arms on my Asko 1716 dishwasher do not turn - water enters the unit and drains easily, and the heating element also seems to work. The filters and sump are clear, as are the air gap and the holes...

It doesn't sound like the dishwasher jet arms are spraying water and the dishsoap was still on door at end of cycle.

Maytag Quiet Series 300 - it seems like the soap door is not opening and when it does the soap packets are not dissolving. I cleaned out all of the spray arms. That did not help. What else can I do??


  1. Be sure that you don't have something large blocking the dispenser door like a cutting board.
  2. Make sure the water temp is 125 degrees going into the dishwasher. Cold water won't break down detergent correctly.
  3. Make sure your getting water pressure: Run your dishwasher on normal. Wait until the cycle starts and the spray arms are spraying. Turn a cup right side up to catch water on the top rack if you run the dishwasher and wait 20 sec that cup should be half or full. If you don't have water in the cup you could have poor water pressure from your pump. This could indicate 1. Worn motor 2. Clogged pump
Have a great day!

The 1358 dishwasher does everything (pumping, water, heating, drying) but it does not really wash and dishes and dooe remain dirty.

Water pumps into the bottom of the dw but the spray arm doesn't rotate and spray. It also empties, so the problem seems to be with the spray arm. Any solutions?

Asko 1385: 13 year old dishwasher stops during cycle. If you push on the middle of the door it starts again. It is like the latch is not working properly but by all appearances the latch works fine....


when you latch the door it closes the circuit.
you may have to open the casing of the door to access the switch. it may be stuck or defective.
