Asko Dishwasher F2 Error Flashing

Out of the blue (the dishwasher wasn't even running), the lights on my Asko Dishwasher D1776 began to all flash in addition to a flashing F2 error message, plus the machine began making a continuous, load noise. I tried holding the dishwasher's buttons down for several seconds to get it to restart, but this does nothing. The only way I've been able to get the noise and flashing to stop is by cutting off the electricity to the circuit that is connected to the dishwasher. Any ideas about what's causing this and how I can fix it? Thanks.

    Our unit started flashing F2 with all the other lights flashing as well. This was half way through our second load today.

    All,

    I too had the very same problem - I have an Asko D1876. While searching for a fix on the net, I found that several others have the exact problem. Seems that the drain from the main tub on Asko's have a leaking problem at the plastic flange. If your cycle begins normally, then defaults to F2 - this is probably your problem (as was mine). There is a face-plate that you can remove just below the door (is held in place with screws - unplug your machine first). This will give you a view of the motor and drip pan below. If there is water in that drip pan, remove that water using a sponge - that should allow the float to go back to its normal position. Then, leaving that face plate off, plug back in your machine - hopefully it has returned to its normal function (if it remains in F2, your float or water leveling sensor may be bad). Run a cycle and look underneath for any leaks. I repaired my leak by removing that plastic flange and using Pummer's Putty ($3.75 at ACE Hardware) around the seal and then screwing the flange back in place. Stopped the leak and now the machine works just fine. Hope this helps, Doug

    My Asko D1976 flashes the "F2" code in the middle of the washing cycle. It will not shut off by holding down the power button. What does this error code indicate? Please advise. Thank you

I have had this problem twice. It was caused by a piece of food getting stuck in the removable drain and preventing the dishwasher from draining properly resulting in a pool of water in the dishwasher. First, remove the removable drain and clean it out. This time I ran the dishwasher to drain the pool of water. After draining the water it continued to run and had the flashing F2 error message. After turning off the power to the dishwasher I used towels to try to remove as much water as possible from the foam behind the lower panel. Then I left the power off and waited 36 hours. During that time I turned the power back on a couple of times, but the motor churned and it had the flashing F2 error message. After the 36 hours it had apparently dried out sufficiently and worked fine.

This was very helpful! Only 2 weeks ago I replace the circulation pump on my Asko 1855. Today, when I turned the power on, the F2 error message appeared. I removed the face plates and discovered there was a lot of water in the drip pan. I found the cause to be a small leakage on one of the hose connections. After removing all the water, the water level switch worked properly.

Thanks for info it solved the problem.
I have a Asko D3132, our kitchen drain blocked and subsuquently the washer couldn't empty and unbeknowns put water into the underneath tray. The F2 error displayed and washer kept trying to empty even when I switched the machine off. Took off backplate where the water would have engaged the float causing the problem.
All you need to do is tilt the washer and water will flow out without removing back plate.
Now going well.

    This worked for me... Just pull the dishwasher out and tilt it so the water in the pan runs out (remember towels!! to dry the water with)... Don't mess with the backplate or anything... my dishwasher (Asko Vølund D3130) works great again!

F2 is caused by water collecting in the sump under the diswasher which triggers a polystrene float to raise to contact a relay. To fix pull the dishwasher out and remove the back plate. However this may require a special screw driver bit - for my Model Asko D3132 I had to use a Torx T15 bit which I had becasue I had a laptop tool kit which came with this. Once the water is removed you can wiggle the polystrene float and hear it release the relay. (optional as the removal of water will aollow float to drop slightly back to its position. Good luck

Water accumuates in the drip pan and causes the F2 errors. Remove the kick plate and the plate behind. There was quite a bit of water to be removed. We uses seeral Sham-Wows, then finished wi a blow dryer. The dishwasher work perfectly once the drip pan was free of water.

Thanks for all for ther tips.

I have Aske DM 44, same F2 error in display and motor is running contantly. In this model you have to remove the backplate (where the in/out water tubes + power cable are) in oder to see the motor area and bottom plate(sump) for collecting water. In my case lots of water (1-1.5 Liter i guess) accumilated in the sump. So i removed water and dried the area for moisture. Powered up and no more F2 error and machine is back to normal.

The mistary is how so much water got collected in sump in the first palce.

I had an f2 error code. Took the two lower front kick panels to expose the lower sump tray. This was filled with water and the sump water level switch was tripped, causing the f2 error code. I sucked the water out with a shop vac and the appliance resumed normal operation. NOTE: my particular problem was caused by a garbage disposal that was installed that did not have the dishwasher connection plug knocked out. ( a rookie mistake)

Could be that water has leaked under the unit and caused the unit to cut out. Pull the unit out and check for water in the pan. Then identify the source of leak

It seems that the valve that supplies water to dishwasher can fail and allow water to enter the dishwasher even when its not on and of course overfills causing the F2 error. Replacing the valve isn't easy and too expensive. Solution: replace the dishwasher

F2 signifies high water level. Check the drain pump and drain hose, make sure they are not clogged. Check the operation of the water inlet valve.

Hi- Check to see if your Air Gap at the sink is clogged, this will absolutely cause drain issues and is easier to remedy than the pump. Best regards.
