Question about Asko D3112SS Stainless Steel Dishwasher
I have an early 1990's ASKO Superior built in Dishwasher Serial# 9234-15052 Type 14/6(?)After sucking and wiping out all the water, the dishwasher will now pump out the reservoir in the bottom and refill with water in preparation for the next wash, but then fails to engage the wash cycle...any wash cycle. I'm fairly handy and have a good set of tools.
Chances are you have a bad recirculation pump. If the dishwasher fills, then seems to just sit there, its probably trying to run the pump, but cant. Pull the dishwasher out and remove the rear acess panel (if it's there on this model) the pump you want is the one in the middle, all the way in the rear. Firts look for visible signs of leakage at th front of the pump where the metal meets the plastic. If there is any, the bearings in the pupm are shot and you need a new one. next get your volt meter and check for 110 or so volts between the two wires running from the harness to the pump. You must turn it on, then let it run for a minute before there will be any power to it. if there is voltage, you need a recirculation pump.if there is no voltage, pull the front panel of the dishwasher doors and check for breaks in the wires that go out the door into the tub. If there are no breaks and no voltage to the pump, then you need a timer or control board (depending if it has a control knob or buttons). if you need to order the pump, also order the hose clamps that go with it...the ones ASKO uses aren't reuseable, or at least get some worm-style clamps from an auto parts store before hand. The only asko parst distributor I know of In the US is american appliance 303 777 0993. Hope this helps!.

It sound like a water switch level problem. I am not familiar with your specific dishwasher, but there are 2 types of level switches. 1)A diaphragm device with a small clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. 2)Floating switch that located inside the dishwasher's bottom and operate a switch. In case there is a floating switch in your dishwasher - check for its smooth movment and check as well the switch by a multi-meter (an on/off switch). Defective switch should be replaced. If level switch in your dishwasher, is a diaphragm device - Open the rear panel, find the device and clear first any obstruction in the tube.In case it doesn't help, disconnect the wires from the unit (you should disconnect first machine's power cable !!!!!) and measure with a multi-meter on its tugs for continuity and disconnection while you are inhale and blow to its tube. In case it will not react, you should replace it. Good luck !!
