Asko 3230 dishwasher - not powering up

Just had a run of issues with our Asko dishwasher. After having the service guy out twice he finally found a leak in the outlet hose. Now the machine does not power up when you hit the on button. It might work for 2-3 days perfectly then next time the power button does nothing. Dont really want to wait another week for a service guy so any suggestions appreciated.

Re: Asko 3230 dishwasher - not powering up

You dont really need to turn the power to the unit off. Just leav it on till you can get the swithc replaced.They are kind of difficult to do, and you can break the control panel if you dont know what you are doing. i leave mine on all the time. Good Luck!

My asko dishwasher will not turn off. The pumps runs but nothing happens. The dial has no control over the machine at all. I have turned off the breaker but wonder should I order parts or can it. We...

Hello Steve,

Welcome to FixYa.

As an Asko expert and based on your post, the good news...I can fairly confidently tell you It is likely nothing very serious, but the "resolve" requires some investigation on your part.

What the pump running continuous means is the timer has indicated a overfill.

**before proceeding turn the dishwasher power off via the home breaker panel, or unplug it from the wall if that is possible...most are hard wired to the home first**

The first thing to do is remove the toe panel/kick plate and inspect the base for water. There will likely be water present.

With the aid of a sponge, towels, or a wet-dry shop vacuum, absorb the water from the base, that should restore normal should be known that if you leave the unit for a few days, the water in the base will evaporate hence appearing as everything is fine again...if any other problem/leak does exist it will return.

If the unit works fine after resetting the power/breaker and soaking up any water present, it can likely be chalked up to a drain back-up or obstruction in the drain hose or pump...
(it could mean a faulty drain pump so you'll need to pay close attention the next few times you run it)

**The float is primarily the last ditch safety to prevent disaster in the event of a overflow, back-flow, or leak underneath the unit and the continuous pumping is
letting you know to service or call for service to the unit**

Hope this helps move you forward, or even better resolves the issue altogether. Let me know of course, I will help you move further if necessary.

Good luck.

I hae an ASKO D1796FI and Ive ha it serviced twice. It is not cleaning and leaving a film on glass and cutlery. Baking on residue. $159 a clip to service too.


The scum, film and white residue problems have started since the reduction of phosphates in dishwasher detergents.

Here is a tip that will help you to solve the problem of films, residue, and scum in your dishwasher.

Most likely the circulation pump. On this pump there is mounted a condensator. This will help the pump to get started. If this is broken, it wont circulate the water up to the sprayers.

ASKO dishwasher won't drain and makes rattling sound.

I had tried several failed attempts to fix this problem. Finally I got on my knees and asked God to make the dishwasher run in Christ's name. The dishwasher just completed it's first cycle without any problems.

Faulty Asko dishwasher

We were told by an ASKO technician that it has something to do with a balance issue. You could try tilting the machine forward (make sure you've removed side screws into walls first though otherwise you could damage the cupboards).

Asko D1796F1 builtin...lights are on but no one is home

Our Asko D1796 dishwasher has the lights on the panel working as usual but you can't select a cycle and it won't turn on. We unplugged the pipe. If we turn it off and wait for 12+ hours we have gotten it to work twice.
