Question about Asko 24 in. 1585 Built-in Dishwasher
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.
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:
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.

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.

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.

SOURCE: Asko Dishwasher Model 1375.
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.

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.
