Question about Asko Washing Machines

1 Answer

Washing machine fills with water when not in use.

The drum of the washing machine slowly fills with water when not in use. Although the drain cycle can remove the water to allow me to use the machine, I would prefer to fix it in case I forget to drain it first before opening the door!

The machine works fine in normal use, and drains water normally when the wash cycle finishes.

I do not have a manual for this product, as it came with the house. Can anyone help me fix this? I have an Asko W6011. Water keeps filling into the drum even when the power is off. It still drains normally.

Either your pressure in the main line bringing water to your machine is insufficient; or your intake water valve is defective; which you can replace easily.

Bosch washing machine fills with water throughout any cycle


Just a guess but could the fill valve be defective, not shutting off completely when it should?

The washer fills slowly with water when not in use. It drains without any problem when drain/spin cycle is used.


Most likely the water inlet valves on your washing machine have failed. You may have noticed larger amounts of water in the clothes drum when the washing machine hasn't been used for a few days, this is because the valves may still be open allowing water to drip into the clothes drum.

Here is a link to the part that you need to buy: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/Appliance-Parts/WHIRLPOOL-Washer-water-inlet-valve--universal-item-number-AP3098982.aspx.

And a link to a video showing you how to replace the part: http://www.ultimatehandyman.org/video/appliance_repair/water-inlet-valve.php
Hope this helps!

Black type residue being left on clothes



Hi there,

This is a common problem on washing machines, if you predominantly do cold washes.

Over a period of time, a washing machine will accumulate a buildup of Soap Scum (excess soap & softener residue) which can stick to the inside of the drum.

This black coloured soap scum occasionally breaks away from the drum, and attaches to the clothing fabric during the wash cycle.

You can rectify this, by doing the following:

Firstly, purchase a packet of CITRIC ACID from your local grocery store (usually found in the baking isle).

Do the following procedure before going to bed:

1) Do a HOT WASH without clothes (Hi water level, with HOT water) - allow machine to fill with hot water, then add the CITRIC ACID to the water. Allow the machine to complete a FULL wash cycle (i.e. allow machine to agitate for 30 mins or so, then drain).

2) Fill the machine again with the HOT water / CITRIC ACID solution, but this time allow it to sit in the bowl overnight (no cycle).

3) Next morning, set machine to spin & drain (i.e. to empty the solution)

4) Set machine to fill with FRESH HOT WATER ONLY (no citric acid), then set machine to spin & drain. This will flush all remaining residue left in the bowl.

Note: Soap scum residue is caused by using excess detergent/fabric softener. Hot Water flushing should be done every 6 months.

Contrary to what the detergent manufacturers state, you should follow Samsung's instructions by using HALF the recommended detergent.

Samsung machines prefer LOW SUDS, and you may find by reducing the amount of detergent used, you may even eliminate the buildup of soap scum.

Have whirlpool LSR7233B top load washer. It fills and agaites but will not drain all the way and spins slowly on slowly on spin cycle


THE BELT THAT DRIVES THE DRUM MIGHT BE WORN, THE BELT IS NOT UNDER A LOT OF STRAIN WHEN WASHING AND MAY WORK FINE BUT WHEN IT GOES INTO THE SPIN CYCLE THE WEIGHT OF THE CLOTHES AND THE WATER WILL CAUSE THE BELT TO SLIP . I WOULD START THERE FIRST

No drum movement during wash/spin cycle, although it fills/drains


brushes need replacing in motor. Usually cheap enough to buy and do yourself.

After water drains, it slowly comes back and fills in the drum over time.


Use the attached video to show you how to access the inside of the machine.Ignore the other parts other than access and re-assemly.

WF860 drum filling with water


Normally I would think that the problem is with the drain system (faulty pump or clogged lines), but you told me that also "When the washing machine is not bein.g used the drum slowly starts to fill with water!!" therefor I think it can be a dafective inlet valve or a faulty control assembly.
In either case, you will need a technician to fix this.

Washing machine fills with water when not in use.


You have an open solenoid on your water valve where the fill hoses connect. Change the water valve and you should be good.
