Asko 20004 washes but won't spin

The drum rotates back and forth at the beginning of the spin cycle, but when it switches to speed up there is a metallic tink sound, the drum jerks then stops rotating altogether. F6 fault code comes up.

This is a motor fault issue. As I don't know your ability in repairing or what tools you possess. Simple solution: other then have a repairman do this, the motor has something causing a fault. The vast majority of times in an asko because the motors spin at high speeds then most others is that the brushes wear out. So they most likely need a repair. Turn off machine, remove motor replace brushes. There other possibilities such as electrical problems but I reckon brushes are the problem, could cost $60 for the pair and takes maybe an hour or two depending the skill of the person attempting. This is not complex just dirty I do not endorse repairing any appliance without proper experience in repairing appliances. This is only informative.

SOURCE: Drum will not rotate

im confused as to why you think no drum rotation would be caused by bearings. typically worn bearings would cause noisy spin. only if bearings were completely seized would that cause no drum rotation. can you rotate drum by hand? if so bearings are not seized. can you hear motor rotate when you select spin? if not, then likely cause is motor brushes. do these simple tests and get back to me if you want. and bearings are quite difficult to replace on this machine

SOURCE: grinding noise when drum rotates

may be a foreign object trapped in between the inner and outer tub. Major Disassembly required to split the outer tub. May also be the rear bearing in which case back half will have to be replaced.

SOURCE: F33 error code. drum begins to rotate and then

The F33 error code indicates a pump drive system error. If the pump ohms out correctly & the harness is secure I recommend replacing the CCU (central control unit).
Please see the following image provided for instructions.

Remember to disconnect power to the washer before attempting access.

SOURCE: WHIRLPOOL DUET SPORT WASHER FLASH FAULT CODE F28

F28 is a serial bus error from the CCU (Central Control Unit) to the MCU (Motor Control Unit).

All you need is some Electronics contact cleaner spray and a 1/4 inch socket to remove the top of the machine and the back of the machine.
The CCU is the computer looking box at the top front right hand corner.
Find connector M13, (has red marking on it and only 3 wires) disconnect it by pushing the retainer tab back and pulling gently on the connector.
Spray the contacts of the connector and computer with connector cleaner.
Then re-assemble connector.
The MCU is in the back lower left corner.
Find the connector with 3 wires and red mark, and remove this connector in the same way you did the other, spray it and re-install.
Put the back and top back on.

My Asko W 6761 just put oil spots all over my sheets. What is wrong? It appears to have happened in the spin cycle


What can happen is that the main and only bearing on which the drum rotates, can start to break up after time, and, of course, the bearing is full of grease. This could be the problem.
It would also be the reason for the spin to be all over the place as the bearing is not holding the drum properly any more.
A call to a Repair man or Service seems necessary I'm afraid.

Can't stop cycle


You probably have some other issue with the machine if it won't stop, but the machine may also not be spinning the mat out because the load is unbalanced. If you put it in on spin only, watch to see if it actually spins up to speed or not. You will see it rotate the drum back and forth a couple of times - it is sensing the weight of the load and trying to balance it. I the machine can't balance it, it will never spin up to max speed. If this happens, put a few other items in the washer with the heavy item (they need to be of similar weight - like some towels or a heavy jacket or something) and try again. Good Luck

This seems to be a fault with the controller unit as there is no program cycle execution . So remore the power plug and let the processor reset, now try with different programs and if the cycle does not move it is possible that the controller unit is faulty.

Model fwt645rhso will agitate but won't drain out, on spin cycle washer spins one way, stops goes back the other way, but water will not drain out. Does not rapidly spin on final cycle. Any...


There's an auxiliary switch in the door lock.switch assembly that is activated at the end of the wash cycle for the machine to advance to the spin cycle. The machine will NEVER advance to the spin cycle unless the auxiliary switch is activated as a safety feature to prevent the door from opening during a high-speed spin cycle that may result in physical injury. The drum tumbles back and forth while the machine control checks the auxiliary if activated but since it's not, the control will not command the motor speed control to spin the drum at high speed. These symptoms may indicate a faulty door lock/switch assembly and may need replacement. Click on the links below for the detailed troubleshooting instructions and replacement of the door lock/switch assembly.

Hi I have an ASKO 20004 WM200, washing machine, that not pump out the water. It looks like the pump just goes back and forth without it rotates to clear up. What could be wrong


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

It's not the drum rotating which pumps out the water but a separate drain pump motor.
Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter.

Here are my complete, general pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the filter and the motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

It sounds like you will need a new motor. You pump seems to work and that leads to the motor because it does not spin or move. Motor should be easy to replace good luck

Asko 10505 washer will not spin


Hi, 2 things to check for. Obstruction in the drain pump or faulty drain pump, brushes in the motor worn out. The easiest way to determine the pump issue is answer this question. Does it drain ? Next, turn the timer to the drain/spin cycle, obviously it should drain & spin and advance to "off". The next thing with these 10505 asko is to see if the drum rotates in both directions in the wash/agitate portion of the cycle. You can just select the short wash for this (I forget if it's #4 or #5) If not, it's worn brushes. However, you'll have to make sure the armature isn't damaged before simply installimg new brushes. We can cross that bridge when we get there. Let me know. Hope that helps, though those are just the most common problems there could be others. Good Luck

Asko 10625 will not spin


it is probably the belt, take off the back of the machine and look at the black rubber belt that spins the cleaning drum. The belts break after about 5 years, you can get a replacement belt at you local Asko dealer, I recall that is was pretty easy to change, like doing a bike chain, Talk to you Asko dealer about how to change it.
