Question about Asko D1716 Built-in Dishwasher
I have an Asko 1473 Superior. The dishwasher runs longer than the expected run time, usually much longer. Then the machine shuts off with two lights blinking on the front panel. The Pots and Pans and the Normal Wash lights blink, till the door has been opened. I'm assuming that is a fault code indicator, but don't know how to interpret? If anyone can let me know, I would appreciate it.
I've finally tracked down the manual and it the fault code is as follows
"Indicates a fault in the heater or in the thermistor"
You can go into a fault tracing mode by pushing the "Rinse Hold" button five times within 15 seconds. The first, third, fifth and seventh lights will flash when in this mode and you can test the following parts by pressing the corresponding button. I'm going to try the heater test below and assume that if that works the fault must be with the Thermistor. The other tests could be useful for other faults.
User manual found here
Rinse Hold - tests detergent solenoid, detergent flaps open after about 60sec
Pots & Pans - tests Rinse Aid Solenoid, rinse aid will flow down door
Normal Wash - tests water inlet valve, water can be heard entering
Light Wash - tests ventilator solenoid, there will be a click followed by a rattling noise
Quick Wash - tests the heater, the element heats up, WARNING don’t touch element HOT
Temp - tests circulation pump, the pump starts
Dry - test outlet pump, the pump starts
Manual says to push 55 and 65 degree button to exit, I have no idea where those are so will probably just switch off at wall to reset.
Hope this helps someone. I rang ASKO and they said they didn’t know what the fault code meant so either they can’t read or their service sucks, probably a bit of both!
