That is a faulty or clogged inlet valve, or a water level floater stuck down inside the machine.

First ensure that water is flowing regularly through the inlet hose. If you find nothing in there, then the thing to do is accessing to the inlet valve and testing it. Also check the water level floater is not stuck.
The inlet valve is tested by reading voltages, reading continuity, and physically checking if it is closed.
If it turns out that inlet valve is fine, water level is fine, there is no blockage and water supply is fine. Then only in that case test and eventually replace timer board.

Hi I had f2 flash up on the control panel so we drained it and turned it back on it now shows 5 on the control panel and wont do anything else it is a ASKO D1976


Hi

Error F2 in asko dishwashers indicate high water level. This may happen due to plugged drain pump or due to faulty water inlet valve. To resolve the issue remove the back plate and check the drain pump. Disconnect the hoses from the drain pump and clear the lint from the hose and the pump area. Lot of water would be there when you'll remove the hose from the pump, be ready to collect it. Let it dry and now the dishwasher will work perfectly now. Hope it helps...

Some do have a screen but most don't. It could be possible that your feed line may be kinked? There is also the valve at the water inlet that could possibly going bad as well. Hope this helps.

Overfilling fault


I believe the washer has had a flood type situation.there is normally a flood switch in the very bottom of the dishwasher right at the very floor,if water get into the bottom tray it floats a piece polystyrene foam wich triggers a little micro switch wich will run the pump continually & show Overfilling fault at the same time..The water in the tray needs to be mopped out with a rag or spunge so that the styrene foam can drop back down.The blockage you had may have caused this flood situation some how.The overfill fault was probably due to the washer not pumping out,So that may be ok now that you have cleared the blockage.hope this helped.

Our Asko D3250 dishwasher is brand new, and it fills up and drains and fills again and then the water inlet fault flashes. It doesn't go past this point.


this sounds like a improper install ! ck to see if the drain hose outlet is lower than bottm of tank. it should drain to the disposal . and have a drain loop under sink .. the dw prosser is sensing that the drain is longer in time so it flasher inlet fault . . elevate the drain and try again ..if it drains to a lower use a stand pipe or a siphon brake . in the install .. mm
