Question about Dishwashers
Hi, My dishwasher is not pumping water through the rotating arms. I have been noticing that the dishes were coming out dirty and the detergent tablet falls to the bottom of the machine. I have put the machine on just a rinse cycle. (someone told me this might clear up the problem.) I have opened the door and press the little switch to activate the machine and can see that the water is getting poured into the washer via a side inlet. Water is at the bottom of the washer and the heating element turns on. Water gets pumped out and no water is pumped into the swinging arm. Help!! Thanks, Matt
Hi, I have an ASKO 1606 and it stopped turning on. This happened after the sink drain got blocked. All that would happen when switched on was the sound of the pump trying to pump water out. I opened up the panel on the back and found the tray inside full of water. As I started scooping the water out I heard what sounded like a switch clicking on and off. I think there must be a safety float switch or something. Once the water in the tray was cleared everything worked fine again. No more hand washing dishes!! WOOHOO

The inlet Filler has an elaborate filter & dosage unit.. Its blocked! Allowing only a portion of water to get through, not enough for the pump to push through to spinners

It could be a motor or a pump issue. The dishwasher has a motor that attached to a pump which forces the water up into the sprayer arms and during the drain cycle, it pushes the water out of the dishwasher. The motor (and pump) located beneath the dishwasher. Check if motor spins. In case it spins, the problem is with the pump ,in case it doesn't spin it could be a motor problem or a motor and pump problem. Good luck

I have an older dishwasher also and recently my wife also complained about it not cleaning right... so me being the man I am tried in vain to clean the things... Bought new spray arms online and installed them in minutes...now the thing works like new... However I have also found that if the heating element goes bad then that also can mess things up bad... So I would buy new spray arms, and also check out the heating element to make sure it is working... Here is a tip that will help you with the online buying...
