Question about Asko D1716 Built-in Dishwasher
Checked wires, wire connections, plug and fuse box, all seems fine. I know this because the microwave is plugged into the same outlet. I loaded the dishwasher turned the dial to cycle 5 and nothing, except when i turned the dial the orange light came on and then faded out. I tried a few solutions off your site but still nothing. I kicked it once, tried electric shock but to no avail. It may have gone to dishwasher heaven.
Check the door switch, it may have gone bad or maybe isnt connecting with the catch, making it look dead. They wont do anything when the door is open, as you know. Also remove the lower panels to get to the inside of the dishwasher. Check for power where the cord is plugged into the machine. If you have power, unplug it and look at the terminals to the heaater element. They are on the right side, facing down out of the dishwasher tub. Just look inside the dishwasher to see where the heater goes through, then look in the same place underneath, Check the condition of these connections. The timer gets power through the heater element (strange but true) so if the heater is bad or these connections have heated and melted, it will cause a dead dishwasher. if tis just the connectio, pu t a new terminal on it and you should be good to go. Hope this helps
