    I have the same problem, except it will start again if I apply downward pressure on the knob. Happens every single time now.

Sounds like the safety switch that the lid engages when you close the lid if the switch is bad it won't spin but will wash fine

It sounds like the spin bearings are failing.
Also chance the motor or pump were failing,
The other possibility would be the transmission or brake assembly.To check the brake assembly you can remove the front panel by using a putty knife to release the spring clips located about 3-4 inches from the sides between the top & front panels.
Hope this helps .
Thanks for using Fixya

Asko 10505 washer will not spin


Hi, 2 things to check for. Obstruction in the drain pump or faulty drain pump, brushes in the motor worn out. The easiest way to determine the pump issue is answer this question. Does it drain ? Next, turn the timer to the drain/spin cycle, obviously it should drain & spin and advance to "off". The next thing with these 10505 asko is to see if the drum rotates in both directions in the wash/agitate portion of the cycle. You can just select the short wash for this (I forget if it's #4 or #5) If not, it's worn brushes. However, you'll have to make sure the armature isn't damaged before simply installimg new brushes. We can cross that bridge when we get there. Let me know. Hope that helps, though those are just the most common problems there could be others. Good Luck

It does not agitate when in the normal cycle and does not drain.


"Does not agitate" sounds like a broken or worn drive belt. "Does not drain" sounds like a broken or worn pump belt. Since it is unlikely that both belts are bad, I suspect that the next common link, the drive motor, is bad, i.e. your drive motor is either defective or not getting power during the agitate and spin cycles. The primary symptom for a non-operating drive motor should be obvious, i.e., the machine just doesn't run after the wash fill, and it doesn't empty when the timer advances to the spin/drain cycle. If the drive motor does sound like its running, I would then inspect both belts and drive motor pulley for proper operation.
