Question about Asko Dishwashers

Open Question

Asko dw20 pump keeps running even with door open and turned off... The machine got to the final cycle then the pump just keeps running and the glass icon (L2) keeps flashing. All the water is not evacuated from the washer. When I power off from the front the drain pump still runs (and water is still not draining). When I power cycle from the mains (waiting 10 seconds) the pump engages again and the water level drops a bit and then stops draining. I have done this until all the water is empty and the machine is still pumping. I've loosened the drain hose from the sink drain connection end and blown through hose and all the air blows easily through and there's no muck in the line...

SOURCE: Not starting wash cycle

Typically this means that there has been a water leak of some sort and there is water in the lower base pan. This is the large white plastic base that the dishwasher sits on.

If you remove the toe kick and look back past the fill valve on the extreme left side of the dishwasher about 6 to 8 inches from the front you will see a red stick that goes straight up and down. This is a mechanical linkage that activates the drain feature. Be careful as there are live connections here.

This stick rests on a round piece of Styrofoam that acts as a float. If there is water present it will cause the stick to lift and the dishwasher will go into drain. The source of the leak will have to be isolated and corrected. Most likely it is the fill float assembly as referenced at the end of this post.

If the stick is not in the upright position then there is possibly an issue with the switch mechanism itself.

You will have to pull the dishwasher out from beneath the cabinet and remove the panel covering the left hand side. If it is a full panel then there are a couple of screws holding it on from the front through side trim as viewed when the door is open if it is a half panel then it can be removed by removing the large torx screw on the lower right as seen when facing the panel.

If there is a problem with the switch then the entire mechanism should be replaced.

Try the following link to a picture for reference. It is upside down as compared to the installed one:

SOURCE: Asko D3230 dishwasher pump will not turn off, with main switch on

This is a anti flood activation. It is a safety device (polystireen float and micro switch at the base of the washer) that keeps the drain motor running due to water leak / spill detection. Dry the water and rectify the leak (normaly pipe or clamp leak) and this should solve the problem.

SOURCE: The drain pump keeps running when the machine is

This sounds like its gone into flood mode.
If water is detected in the base of the machine, the pump switches on and stays on to prevent flooding.
Normally to reset you would lean the machine backwards and let the water drain out.
In your case, switch off the mains, remove the lower kick panel. Shine a torch in there and you should see the water. CAREFULLY dry it out and it should reset.
If it does it again, you need to check for leaks.

Can't open door of ASKO W6883


If nothing else works, the washer door can be opened as follows:

This must only be done in an emergency

if the machine's glass door does not open automatically when the program has finished.

First check that there is no water left in the machine. If there is water left in the machine and it is not possible to run the Drain program, empty the machine by using the drain hose.

Make sure that the main power switch is off and that the plug has been re- moved from the wall socket.

You will find the emergency opener for the glass door in the double sealed bag.

Open the glass door by putting the opener in the slot to the right of the lock on the door. Push the opener up or down and the door will open.

How make the door open automatically when finish the laundry


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa,

These model of Asko ( based on the number listed ) do not have such an option. On these models the Program Control knob must be at the end of a program (at the 12:00 or zero position) to open the glass door.

If you need to stop or interrupt a program after you start the machine, turn the Program Control knob

to 10 (Drain). Any water in the machine will be pumped out and you can then press the Door Open

button ( ) to open the door. To restart the washer, close the door and turn the controls to the desired
settings.

On the electronic control models, if you need to open the glass door during a wash or rinse cycle, press and hold the Door Open button for three seconds. The machine will stop and automatically drain enough water so the door can be opened safely. The program will resume when you close the door. The inlet valve will come on to

ensure the proper water level.


In case of mechanical failure, you can use the Emergency Door Opener located by the drain pump. To use the Emergency Door Opener, remove the screw holding the cord handle (loop) and pull the cord down.


Hope this answers your question even if it isn't necessarily the answer you wanted. Thank you for choosing FixYa and good luck.


Regards,


Macmarkus :)

How do you open the door, and how do you get the clothes not sopping wet when the wash cycle is done?


HI- If the clothes are coming out wet then there is either a problem with the spin cycle or drain pump. The door won't open if the washer senses there is too much water in the machine. Try doing a dedicated spin again the see if the door will open. Your drain pump may also be clogged. There is a little door at the bottom front of the machine. Open this (pry carefully open with a butter knife) and you will see a plastic plug that can be unscrewed (counter clockwise), this is the pump filter. Be prepared to catch the water that will come out with a pan and have some towels ready, sometimes there is a lot of water. Once you get the filter out clean it out and check for any loose change inside the pump. Screw it back in carefully and tight and be careful not to strip the threads. Run a rinse and spin once it's all back together and see if it drains ok. If it still is not draining you probably need a new pump. There are very few Asko Techs around so you may have some trouble getting someone out. As well, call Asko customer service, they have really good techs that can help you over the phone. Good luck.

I have an ASKO D3250 and it has recently started making a loud noise from the pump area. It starts as soon as the cycle begins and doesn't stop even if you open the door. It seems to stop about 90 seconds...


All power and sounds should stop when any dishwasher door is opened.
Your door switch may be stuck causing it to continue.
The 90 second sound at the beginning of the cycle is the water pump extracting any residual water before taking on clean water for the wash cycle.
Any excessive noise from the drain pump could be debris in the pump. e.g. broken glass.
You can remove the pump and check it for blockage or any foreign object.

Dishwasher won't power off


Howdy. Flashing light on the switch, shows a glass? At any rate your overflow protection switch is activated. Probable cause; plugged or defective exhaust hose that does not allow pumping to go faster than water coming in, too high a water level. Clean the entire system first!
Is your exhaust hose going up to about threequarters as high as the machine? You must have this uphill twist and turn in the drain system.
A little water remains in the sensor and it thinks you are flooded. Force air through the pump in the floor until all is clear, a clean plumber's helper is ideal. Keep doing this until you get the last bit of water out of the sensor. When you get it running watch the machine (First time) carefully. You do not want a flood, that's why Asko put this safety device in place.

Asko 12605 overheating the wash water


(even not taking in hot water when filling before the wash stage which seems good)

The washer fills with cold water then heats it up 3 degrees a min. Your problem does sound like a faulty thermostat. Especailly if the glass door does get hot even if it is on 85f.
