I have an ASKO D1986 dishwasher. Now suddenly the water pump runs constantly, it happened at the beginning of a wash (I guess the machine starts by draining any water before the actual washing). It is running no matter what I do, even if the door is open. All 8 LED's are flashing. If I press the start button for about 5 seconds (should be reset?), the pump is still running, but now the 4 LED's to the left are flashing, the 4 LED's to the right are constant on.
The pump itself works fine, if I pour water into the machine, it drains. I suspect either that there is a sensor that should indicate that there is no more water that is faulty, or that there is a shortcut somewhere keeping the pump on, but this are only my guesses...

Most likely is activated overflow system.
This means water leaks under the dishwasher and is activated drain pump to prevent flooding. The simplest is to lean on either side the dishwasher so if there is water on the floor, that's it. Now you need to identify and repair the leaks. You can not be excluded that a defective triac by driving the drain pump placed on circuit board. It very rarely happens and some brands signals a failure by display or LED diodes .
There is water in the lower pan that you must access by removing the toe kick plate and then the panel behind it. you will see water in the overflow area. Clean that out and all will be well. Asko's are awesome dishwashers that capture any water they may overflow or leak internally instead of it going on your floor, then a float switch triggers the F2 error and runs the drain pump.
If water gets onto the pan under the dishwasher, there is a styrofoam float that rises and hits a microswitch that causes the dishwasher to drain constantly so that you don't get a flood in your kitchen. Mine has done this when I splashed out water from a bowl that had overturned during the wash and was full of water and when I had some water deposits built up on the door seal that let water through. Sometimes the foat will hang up and I have to wiggle it around to get it to fall back down.
I had to slide the dishwasher forward (undercounter installation)and tip it forward as far as possible. Water leaks onto floor, but then the internal controller seems to reset and the ASKO now works normally again. What kind of idiot would design a control module that does not incorporate a power-off interlock? FAIL FAIL FAIL - Bad, ASKO, Bad. Go to your room.
i think you are hearing the drain pump going. take the bottom front panel off so as to expose the bottom tray. yoy willprobably find this full of water. mop water out and it should work. if fault reoccurs then you have a leak.
turn power off first
