Question about Asko 24 in. 1585 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Dishwasher not running through entire wash cycle

Dishwasher starts and you can hear the water gurgling in the garbage disposal area with all the normal "start cycle" sounds, the soap dispenser dispenses the soap, the heat is engaged and a little water seems to have been sprayed, the program timer counts down the time but nothing else happens and it doesn't go through any additional washing and no water seems to have been turned on? I've tried turning it off and then back on to start the cycle again, checked the load and removed a large salad bowl that was near the door, checked to make sure the door was shutting properly, and I've even tried setting it on a different wash program to see if it would run and it did the same thing - started and then nothing.

    I've noticed that it drains any residual water in the bottom and then starts filling and when the bottom has a little water in it - it stops and nothing else happens. I've checked the spray valve on the spray arm on the bottom spinner and it seems to be clear & in good working order.

    Also - I have the ASKO D3350 8-Steel System not a 1585. Also - I checked and don't have the switch valve on my model that you're mentioning below. My machine has a removeable drain basket on the bottom that seems to be clean & clear of any debris. There is also what looks like a sprayer next to the drain basket.

If I understand right, you saying no/little water is entering the washer?

First, look for the float switch valve.
Here's an example of what you're looking for:

http://appliancejunk.com/forums/gallery/1_12_08_07_8_34_08.jpg

It's the item in the lower right, with the spoon stuck under it.
If this float is stuck/hung-up in the UP position, it won't allow water to flow, as it senses that the water level is already at maximum.

Try to lift yours and see if it freely drops back down on it's own.
Sometimes they get gummed up and stick, or get pulled up and tilted a little, or have something (like a spoon) stuck under them.

SOURCE: I have a old Asko Dishwasher. It works perfectly.

Put less soap in. Your wash will be fine with less soap. We have same problem. MARK: do not have tall objects underneath that will stop upper rotor from spinning. Also objects in upper basket kan penetrate and stop uppper rotor from spinning. Using less soap works for us.

SOURCE: ASKO 1885 Built-in Dishwasher: The water

Hi,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description and provided the dishwasher is indeed 1) an Asko 1885 and 2) filling with water, draining, heating, but not circulating, It sounds like a busted wash impeller within the main motor/circulation pump as you mentioned.

First though, do you hear a quiet sound of a motor starting once the unit has completed filling with water ?

( it will be super quiet if the wash impeller is broke as I suspect it may be...almost like a fountain, since the Asko are very quiet under normal conditions. You will have to either get right down with your ear to the bottom or run it with the door open by activating the door switch with a screw-driver and look for visual/audible clues )


If so that is a tell tale of no wash action yet the motor runs, hence broken impeller. If you don't hear anything it may be a wire come off the main motor/circulation pump...but not likely.

This unfortunately is common with Asko built dishwasher`s and it is a case of being a victim of their own design.

What happens typically is the ball-bearings from the upper rack holders ( which are plastic, hence fatigues due to heat and fall apart ) come out making their way into the sump, hence breaking the wash impeller from the motor.



Let me know what you find and I'll try and help you move forward from there. If you need direction to remove the circulation motor and pump I can do that, but it is a pretty involved repair and requires pulling the unit from the cabinet...you may opt to call in a pro.
I'll watch for your reply.
Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Hi.

If the drawer does not open at all, then the problem is the drawer mechanism itself or the detergent drawer switch connected to the electroni control module. In that case the door must be taken apart to test and eventually replace the part. The switch can be tested energizing it and observing the action on drawer. Most dishwashers use a low voltage mechanism. Please refer to service manual for specific model. Most drawers are operated by a U or L shaped metal spring installed in the drawer. Check that the spring is well in place.

If the drawer releases too late and/or tablet does not dissolve, then the switch may be OK, but the drawer may be obstructed by baskets, the detergent may be incorrect, or the water may not be heating or filling. In that case follow the indications here: The soap dispenser drawer.

If the door opens manually, then it is either a basket obstructing the door, or more likely the door dispenser drawer microswitch is not working. Ensure also that the door is closing well and that machine is filling with water. If the machine is not running the cycle problem is different.

To find parts and diagrams try entering the full model number (as pinted in the service tag located on the appliance) in the websites listed at the link below (US appliances only):

Enter the model number ...

Regards.

Ginko.

SOURCE: my garbage disposal had something stuck in it. i

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your post, the good news...It is likely nothing very serious, but the "resolve" requires some investigation on your part.

What it means is the control has indicated a overfill...makes sense considering your drain backed-up.


**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 electrical...safety 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 operation...it 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 the 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 illuminated light 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.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

How do we remove the horrible smell in our Bosch dishwasher?


First check out your model to see if it has a built in garbage disposal, if so, make sure it is not mucked up.
Run hot water down your sink drain while running the sinks garbage disposal. Pour baking soda down your sink garbage disposal followed by white vinegar. Let it sit and foam. Run hot water down sink disposer while running. When finished:
Run empty dishwasher with no soap, let dishwasher fill with hot water to wash and then pour 1 cup of white vinegar into the bottom and resume wash. Make sure you take it through the dry cycle. When finished, open dishwasher and let it air for a couple of hours, longer if you live in humid area. Hope these steps do the trick.

For Miele Dishwasher G2470SCVI Need help with remaining water in the bottom. Model# G2470 SCV1 SF Type-HG03. Runs through the entire cycle,long,short ect..everything is clean and dishes look great but


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Belt, Water Pump Although few dishwashers have a water pump belt, if the dishwasher won't drain there might be a worn or broken water pump belt. After removing the lower kick panel the motor can be seen in the front, the water pump belt is on the bottom of the motor.

Drain Pump If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain pump might be defective. Test the pump motor with an Ohm meter. Drain pumps are not repairable, if it's defective it will need to be replaced.

Drain Impeller The drain impeller is attached to the pump and pushes the water out of the dishwasher, through the drain tube and into the garbage disposer or drain line. If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain impeller might be broken or worn out. Replace both the impeller and seal at the same time.

Drain Solenoid Kit If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain solenoid kit might need to be replaced. The drain solenoid is an actuator that opens a flap to allow the water to drain.
Drain Valve The drain valve can get clogged with debris and should be cleaned out if the dishwasher won't drain. If it seems clear of debris but won't actuate, it will need to be replaced. The drain valve is not repairable.
Pump and Motor Assembly If the dishwasher won't drain, the pump and motor assembly might be defective. If the motor runs during the drain cycle, check for a blockage in the drain line. If the motor won't run during the drain cycle or if it just hums when it should be running, the pump and motor assembly might need to be replaced.

Clogged or Improperly Installed Garbage Disposer If the dishwasher won't drain and the garbage disposer was installed recently, the installer might have forgotten to knock out the drain plug from this disposer. All garbage disposers are sold with a solid plug in the drain tube for situations where a dishwasher isn't connected. However, if the dishwasher is connected, the plug will need to be removed. If the disposer wasn't replaced recently, remove the dishwasher drain hose from the disposer and clean out both the fitting on the disposer and the end of the drain hose. These are the most common places to find an obstruction if the dishwasher won't drain.

Drain Hose If the dishwasher won't drain the drain hose might be clogged. Remove the drain hose from both the dishwasher and the sink drain to clean it out. The most common place for an obstruction is at the garbage disposer.

Check Valve If the dishwasher won't drain the check valve might be stuck closed. The check valve is a small plastic device which prevents water from returning to the dishwasher after it has drained. If the valve gets stuck closed, it will prevent the water from draining. The check valve is the device that the drain hose is attached to on the dishwasher
Check Ball If the dishwasher won't drain the check ball might be stuck. The check ball is a small plastic ball in the check valve which prevents water from returning to the dishwasher after it has drained. If the ball gets stuck, it will prevent the water from draining also. The check valve is the device that the drain hose is attached to on the dishwasher.

WATER IN MY DISHWASHER


my dishwasher did the same thing last week and it was the garbage disposal. I had to run the garbage disposal and clear it out and then reach my hand in the dishwasher to check for any items blocking the drain. I had nothing and clearing out the garbage disposal did the trick.

I've got a GE dishwasher, a GSD2800. It's giving a C4 code and it just won't drain the water. I turned the breaker to it on and off, shut off the water supply and tried to cycle it but no luck. I can...


If this is a new install where there was no dishwasher before. Or if your garbage disposal has been replaced. Then the plug in the garbage disposal inlet for the dishwasher drain may still be in place. You will have to disconnect the dishwasher drain and see if the inlet is clear. If not the garbage disposal will have to be removed, the plug punched out and then reinstalled. Good Luck!

Dishwasher (Kenmore 665 Ultra Wash) won't drain. Suggestions?


HI.This is a drain issue. check the following areas for faults.

1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

Ok, if the hoses are ok and not clogged, this will confirm a major issue that concerns the drain assembly or pump impeller.

replace the pump(drain) if found to be faulty.

Once my dishwasher completed the cycle there is no water but after two or three days the bottom of the dishwasher fills with the dirty water. what could be the reason? I have garbage disposal and one pipe...


You must have your dishwasher connected directly to the garbage disposal and not through an air gap. What is happening is when you disposal fills with water it is siphoning through the drain hose back to the dishwasher. If you sink has a spare hole on the deck install air gap and run dishwasher drain through air gap first. Otherwise make sure you run Garbage disposal often so that water does not get slowed and build up inside.

New Garbage disposal, washing machine and dishwasher won't work.


Does not sound like these problems are directly related to the disposer. Grinding sound is most likely the impeller on the washer's pump. The washer gets to the first pump out and is unable to pump due to bad impeller or an obstruction. Bad impeller means replace pump motor. (not very hard) Check water supply to dishwasher. Valve turned off or line kinked? Filter screen at solonoid valve plugged?

GE Nautilus Drain Problem


I had the same problem (water remaining in the bottom) after the rinse cycle. FYI my GE Nautilus is 7-years old.
(1) I disconnected the drain tube at the garbage disposal unit (in the sink) and, using a wire coat hangar freed a 'plug' of sludge located at the spot where the drain tube clamps onto the garbage disposal. I blew into the drainage tube to further clear other 'plugs' I observed but could not reach w/the coat hangar.
(2) I unscrewed the Filter/Strainer on the inside (bottom) of the dishwasher; and further removed the inner filter; cleaned both out.
(3) Re-ran the dishwasher thru complete wash/rinse cycles (to check for leaks. There were none.
Finally, upon completion of the w/r cycles there will always be a small pool of water (residing in the filter area). However my dishes are clean and (after 7-years) checking the drain tube and filters was a breeze.
Hope this helps
