Cannot open the dishwasher door !

I just bought an ASKO 3132 dishwasher. It has just been delivered, no manual or instructions outside the machine. It remains unfitted. I cannot get the door open prior to fitting. I have tried this with power on/off and the 'under handle' child lock on/off. I have looked up the online manual to no avail. Any suggestions?

Is there a catch that you can squeeze? on the front of the door?

Asko D3120 remove door to clean

Depending on how thorough you are wanting to be depends on how far you want to dismantle the dishwasher, The outer door needs to be removed first, there are torx screws around the outside of the door which you need to remove and also 2 harder to spot ones at the bottom, The hinges are attached on the sides with another 2 torx screws each side but be careful as the hinges are under tension and can be a pain to align when putting back together.
Most of the time you don't need to remove the entire door to clean it but once the outer shell is off you can get to the front of the basepan where the dirt seems to gather around the lower door, A stiff bottle brush is good for cleaning this, Be very careful with the electronics and ensure you don't get any moisture near them, Also be careful with the wiring as due to exposure to heat the wires on this model can get brittle especially where the wires curve under the machine inside the plastic protective tube...

have fun.

My Asko D1716 dishwasher works fine apart from the soap dispenser. It won't open to release the soap.

Most likely it's a corroded door catch or a bad solenoid. Hopefully it's not the main control board. You'll need a repair manual or technician. A work around would be to use detergent tablets in the compartment

I need to replace the plastic panel on the outside/top( which is the width of the dishwasher and approximately 5-6 inches high) of the dishwasher door on an Asko 1885 model. I ordered the piece from Asko...

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Having done work for Asko for many years I can tell you you're not going to find a technical service manual on-line for these machines because Asko does not release them.

I can, however offer you a complete illustration of all the machines components including the control panel, thus you should be able to interpret how the panel comes apart.

To address the issue of the entire outer panel coming off, it is easier that way in my opinion, but whether it is necessary I think is up for debate...I usually remove it when I service them.

The sections you are speaking of are indeed "snapped" into place with the exception of the latch assembly and relatively easy to remove from the back. Here is an example of the illustrations I can provide (I can also guide you thrrough the process since I have changed a number of them first hand)

Let me know if this may be of any use to you and I'll send it to you...though you need to post an email address with your reply if so. I'll watch for your reply.

Do you have a user manual for this dishwasher.

F2 is linked to either water intake or drain pump problem. Please confirm what you mean by "dishwasher does not stop". If there is no water inside what is the dishwasher doing when you open the door.

Asko Dishwasher Model D1716B Does not fill

Have an Asko 1325 that experienced similar scenario. Removed the unit from the kitchen to the outside to do a thorough exploration. After all a dead machine is a good one to learn on. With the unit electrically disconnected, I explored within the lower guts of the machine. Found some foreign plastic debris within the turbine. Then wigled and removed each electrical connector and reconnected back. There may be corrosion within the contacts. After this procedure I test ran the machine on the outside and it worked.

BTW a common defect with the Asko is the electrical wiring leading up the main door panel, from below the machine. The wires are typically too short and the metal edges of the unit are razor sharp. You guessed it, wires become cut and cause an electrical short at best, or a fire at worst. See the photo for proof by practice. This is why an Asko can be a fiasco. b84ee89.jpg8bbfcfc.jpg

Asko door latch stuck

The only way is to pull out the dishwasher ,unhook the latch and then unscrew the door panel.your dishwasher is installed with 2 screws to the underside of your countertop. its tricky but youll have to remove them adjust to leveling legs down this will give you more room to get some head bit in ther to remove the screws if its out then slide the d/w foward ,remove the strike plate door will open then you can get your dishes out first
