MY DISHWASHER WONT KICK INTO WASH CYCLE CAN HEAR THAT IT WANTS TO BUT DOESN'T ..IT WILL FILL AND DRAIN AND DRY...CHECKED DRAIN AND FILTER CLEAR
Welcome to FixYa.
Based on your description and provided the dishwasher is indeed filling with water, draining, heating, but not circulating, It sounds like a busted wash impeller within the main motor/circulation pump.
First though, do you hear a quiet sound of a motor starting once the unit has completed filling with water ?
( it will be super quiet if the wash impeller is broke as I suspect it may be...almost like a fountain, since the Viking...built by "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 )
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...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 which fatigues due to heat and fall apart ) fall 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.
