Our W6021 front has had a couple of instances where it would not start the fill cycle as usual.
Normally it would be switched on,the relay would operate and the water would begin to enter the bowl.
We tried a number of things including checking the hose and inlet filter for blockage. We then checked the outlet drain pump trap and found a coin and a drill bit lodged in the entry hole to the trap.
Once the foreign objects were removed ,the machine operated as normal once again.
I will be very careful in future to empty my pockets of metal things.
can you start the unit without any clothes in it, let it fill with water as usual and then observe if it tumbles in both directions during the wash cycle ? ( I don't mean the entire cycle, just long enough to insure it rotates in both direction ). Then turn it to drain and insure it drains completely, observe the spin cycle if you can and report if it only spins in one direction slowly. This will go a long way in diagnosing your Asko washer.
Let me know what you find. If it only goes one way, the motor needs new brushes and possibly a complete motor if the armiture is damaged.
With the Asko there are several possible things that can interupt the cycle either during wash or drain/spin. Have you checked the pump insert/button trap for debris or obstruction of any kind ? ( below main door to the left ) Are you using "he" ( lo-sudsing ) detergent ? Does the machine provide any error code, i.e. If it's a mechanical timer model does it stop at "C" or "S" or if electronic a symbol in the display ? Will it complete a cycle without any items in the basket ( empty ) ? Will the unit rorate in both directions and will it spin if you try both parts of that specific cycle ? This will help determine if the problem is with the drive motor brushes.
Let me know, any answer you can provide here will put us closer to a solution to your washer problem. If you could confirm the model number that would be very helpful too.
Thanks and good luck, I will try and reply as soon as I see you've posted a response.
you could have a bad drain pump.
have you checked the hoses that come from the bottom of the tub to the drain pump for anything that might be stuck in there,also check the hose that comes off the drain pump to the wall and look for an obstruction.
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.
Try to Open the safety compartment using a screwdriver under the wash machine in the front. Then open the big white knodb this will cause the wate to drain out which is fine. Then clean this out. Usually you will find coins and stuff here from years of operations from pockets. clear these out and your problem maybe fixed. worked for us
check that all the plugs are in the correct position on the board,you may have introduced the fault,because the only fault you had to start with was worn carbons.did you break off any links maybe J4 etc if the original board had the link taken off and you dont do it on the new board you will hard program the new board and will have to order another board. is the machine heating.put on wool wash and select heating you should hear it start to heat.let me know.thanks Ian
