This is a brand new dishwasher never taken out of box, about 4 years old. It was wired correctly, water placed into tub to lube pump. Everything works on this dishwasher except the pump. I checked to see if any power was reaching the pump/water release valve and no volts was coming through the wires as I patiently waited for it to completing the cycle. Could this be a wiring issue, circuit board, or obviously it's not the valve since there isn't any power coming to it.
Please help, so I can fix this or order the parts.

There are two ways water can get out of your dishwasher. 1, it the tub is cracked and the water leaks out. If that were happening then you'd probably already know since there would be a lot of water somewhere it shouldn't be. 2, if for some reason the drain pump is "stuck" in the on position and is running while the fill valve is open. You could check this by turning the water to your dishwasher OFF and then set it to run a load. When it attempts to start you should hear the valve open and nothing more. If you can hear the drain pump running then you've narrowed the problem this far. The next step would be confirm that all mechanical switches (and/or relays) are operating correctly. Finally, you may want to look up a schematic/wiring diagram for your model and see if it shows any mechanical switches that control the drain pump (like a "high water level" switch) that could be stuck closed. Hope some of this helps.
The Best thing you're going to do is to have new Dishwasher.A lot of brand new products can help you, rather than striving the old one...Hope it will help you! God Bless you...Thank you!

Based on your description that the dishwasher is indeed filling with water but not circulating, It sounds like a busted wash impeller within the main motor/circulation pump. First though, do you hear a quiet sound ( it will be super quiet if the wash impeller is broke so you 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 ) of a motor once the unit has completed filling with water ? 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.
Let me know what you find and I'll try and help you move forward from there.
Re-verify the thermal fuse. If the new wire that came with the fuse was not used the fuse will blow again. Check the door switch for continuity. The power to all parts goes through the door switch first. Open the wire terminal box and check the incoming power wires for good contact. The drain pump may have a blockage in it as well.
One possibility is that there is collection of waste inside the drain pump and filter. If you have cleaned these parts as per instructions in the user guide and there is no difference, then try using a dishwasher cleaner which is available as a liquid in a special dispenser for one off use in an empty dishwasher. This is available in the supermarket.
Hard to know what the plumbing changes were done, but if the dishwasher was taken out and put back in then make sure the drain hose is connected at the correct height. The pump might be working harder than previously which would leave the muck behind.
Hi Guys My dishwasher this morning has desided to not work correctly. Its a ASKO 1302 about 20 years old. It has been a very good machine.
Over the last couple of weeks during the washing cycle, the dishwasher has been making a loader noise than usual.
1. Today, the dishwasher timer, travels all the way through its cycle, but very little washing take place. 2. Soap power is still there, plates not clean!!!! 3. Water is hot 4. At the end of the cycle, there is no water in the dishwasher.
5. I'm thinking the problem could be the pump needs replacing. What do you think? Greg
If I'm not mistaken, these dishwashers are built by Asko for Viking. If thats the case then you probably have a bad circulation pump. Under Asko's warranty (not sure if Viking is the same) these pumps are covered parts and labor for 3 years from installation date, and 5 years for the part only. The pump is accesed from the back of the machine,so you have to pull out the dishwasher. Then you remove the lower plate in the rear and the motor at the very back center is the pump. You remove it by turning it about a 1/4 turn either clockwise or counter clockwise, depending on the style, then place the new one in and turn it to lock it in place, being careful that the sealing oring stays in place or youll get a leak. The part will probably cost you around $150 unless viking marks theirs up more than Asko. Good Luck!
