Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

When I loaded and started ASKO W 6561 washing machine, it started as usual. But when I later went back to see if it was done, I discovered that it had stopped midway and saw the error message "Fault indication Water Outlet fault." What does this mean and can it be fixed easily and if so, how? If not, what should I do?

It means something stopped the unit from draining normally. nine times out of 10, this is change in the drain pump cleanout. it's the littloe square panel on the lower left of the front of the machine. you pop that open with a screwdriver, and remove the end of the black small hose attached to the door and stick that in a bucket. it will drain most of the water form the machine. after it is done, unscrew that little circular cover and pull it out. it will probably be filled with all sorts of fun stuff and change. clean all of it out and put it all back together, making sure to put that small black hose back on the little nub it came off of. check again and see if it works, If not, you may need a new drain pump. Good luck! P.S. If you have the owners manual, or can find it on, it has pretty clear instructions how to clean out this trap, It's considered user maintenance by asko.

SOURCE: Asko W640 water outlet fault

If you get the water fault after checking the lower drain, you may need to remove the drain hose in the back. Usually there is a dime in the hose or the hard part right before the hose.

SOURCE: Asko w640 has a water inlet fault

Check the drain line to make sure the water does not siphon out as it enters the machine.

Replacing Motor Brushes, what needs to be done to clean commutator for a Asko 10505 Washing Machine sold in Australia - purchased around 1998 - ignore the W6021 system wouldn't let me post.

To clean the commutator, or armature as it is usually called, simply rub it with a piece of emery paper, or sandpaper, turning it by hand to ensure you clean it properly..
You need to remove the motor to do this of course.
