On the back of the washer are two spring clips fastened by hex head screws. remove the screws. Under the front of the top in each corner are spring clips. use a putty knife and locate the clips and press towards the back and lift that corner. it should come off. now do the same on the other corner. once the front is free, tilt the top up and pull up. the clips in back will release and you can rotate the top out of the way

Why is my machine flashing a tap sign and stopping?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
Turn off the water at the wall connection and remove the water hoses from the inlet water valve. Remove the inlet screens and wash them under slowly running water by rubbing your fingers over them. Reinstall the inlet screens and re-connect the water hoses to the machine. Remove the hoses at the wall connection and make sure the installer has not installed inlet screens on the hoses. If there are inlet screens on the hoses also clean the inlet screens. Then reconnect the hoses.. turn on the water and test for leaks then test the machine.

This should get you going unless you have relly low water pressure in the home.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Water pooling in washer in between loads


The problem is caused by a leaking water inlet valve and the only way to solve it is by replacing the water inlet valve assembly. It is an easy "do-it-yourself" fix that only requires a minimum effort.

Water Inlet Valve Replacement Procedure
  1. Remove the three screws at the back of the machine holding the top cover.
  2. Slide the top cover to the back and lift it from the washer.
  3. Put a bucket or pan under the inlet valves.
  4. Remove the fill hoses from the machine and drain the water into the bucket or pan to avoid flooding your floor.
  5. Remove the screws holding the water inlet valve assembly to the back of the machine.
  6. Use a pair of pliers to press the spring clamp holding the inlet hose to the inlet valve assembly and move the spring clamp away.
  7. Install the new water inlet valve assembly and all other parts disassembled in reverse order of the procedure above.
  8. Make sure to clean the fill hose filters, if there's any, before attaching it to the water inlet valve assembly.

Asko D3530 water inlet fault code, water valve is on, water comes in but after water comes in for a couple of minutes we get a (inlet water fault code) check power at circulating pump no 120v unit will not...


Hello,

It is common for these valves to "appear" to be ok, meaning they begin to allow water into the unit, but then one of the two coils or plungers inside fail, or are clogged with mineral deposit from the water or other debris.

Change the valve and you should be fine. part #1164471, you can find it at select parts depots or on-line retailers like repairclinic.com etc.

** Hire a pro or make sure to use a good replacement clamp on the fill line to the tub when you replace the valve, as well as some plumbers puddy/tape on the inlet fitting. Those little buggers have alot of water pressure going thru them when they open and I've seen them come off or leak due to insufficient fastening/loose clamps, then your machine goes into "flood mode".**

Asko seems to be repeating their past. On the earlier DW95 series (mid 90's to around 2000ish) they had a dual valve inlet which had a single valve rework issued to repair the faulty dual valves, now it looks like they're doing it again. Go figure.

Hope that helps, let me know.

Good Luck :)
