There could be clips behind the panel that seat in openings in the frame. The toe panel may simply pull off.

SOURCE: ASKO 1555 dishwasher won't run.

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description " The anti flood device motor won\'t stop running but we\'ve removed all the water " It is likely nothing very serious.

The flashing lights are directly related with overfill scenarios for Asko dishwashers of this era...DW95.5, meaning the control is indicating an overfill has been detected. Whether the unit has actually overfilled or not remains to be seen.

In the event it has, the outlet/drain pump motor is automatically turned on via either the pressure switch or a float in the base if sensing an overfill and removing water from inside the dishwasher will do nothing to resolve this error, but you can...

**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. If water is present, with the aid of a sponge, towels, or a wet-dry shop vacuum, absorb the water from the base.

If the unit works fine after resetting the power/breaker it can likely be chalked up to a drain back-up or obstruction in the drain hose or pump.

If not, there are a couple of other possibilities that I'd focus on.

**again insure power to the unit is off**

The first is the float and subsequently, float switch. If you've removed the service panel at the bottom, or toe plate, you need to locate the float and it's switch. It will be located directly behind where your main electrical junction is...

i.e.

macmarkus_4.jpg
Once you've located the float behind the main connection plate, you should see something like this image below,

i.e.


macmarkus_6.jpg
With the aid of a long screwdriver or if you can reach it, move the float up and down and listen closely for the switch to "click", indicating it is indeed functioning.

Restore power again, and see if this resolves the issue, if not try this next...

The pressure switch too can cause all the lights to flash. It is the component which controls the normal fill level and the overfill detection...pre float activation. The float is primarily the last ditch safety to notify the user in the event of a overflow, back-flow, or leak underneath the unit to service or call for service to the unit.

It too is located under the machine and is mounted to the sump well assembly as shown, the large arrow indicates the switch while the small is the hose.

i.e.

macmarkus_7.jpg
The issue is possibly just the hose going to the switch is clogged with debris such as dirt, detergent buildup etc and will be remedied by blowing it out.

The best way to do this is to remove this hose at the switch in the location indicated above, be very careful as to not break the hose off with the part of the switch inside, they can be delicate.

I typically work it loose with a tiny screw driver gently working it away from the switch. Once removed, pour a small amount of hot water, white vinegar or "CLR" through the sump from within the tub...or you can try blowing it through with "lung power".

The other end of the hose is located at the back of the sump well and is quite vulnerable to blockages over time due to detergents, dirt, and such.

This is the location...do not break this or you will need to replace the entire sump well...no fun.

Large arrow is pointing back to pressure switch, small indicates connection to sump well, sorry for the poor quality...it's hard to get in there with a camera phone, ha ha !

i.e.


macmarkus_8.jpg
That's almost the extent of the possible causes of this error. Of course it could be the pressure switch has failed, the float switch has failed or ultimately the control has failed, but not likely.

This attachment below is also a retrofit tip from Asko regarding changes made to the pressure switch on the early DW95 series machines. you can identify if yours is this type by looking for the small white suppressor in the pressure switch...if yours doesn't have it you may want to change it while your at this repair.

Available at "repairclinic.com" for about $45USD.

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 :)

Duet dryer wont start beeps and sensing lights up!


Its likely your thermal fuse is out.

Disconnect the power! Remove the lint filter screen. Remove the two screws from the bottom flange of the toe panel. Pull the toe panel out at the bottom, pull down, and remove the panel. Remove the screw from the lint duct bracket and remove the bracket. Remove the two screws from the lint duct and remove the duct.

Then you will see the white thermal fuse on your blower wheel housing. You can jump it with an alligator clip or take the wires off the thermal fuse and use electrical tape to tape them together to see if it comes on. DON'T LEAVE IT JUMPED TO RUN A CYCLE, order a new one.
Here is a the part.

How do I disassemble my dryer?


Difficulty: Moderately Easy
Things You'll Need:

* Putty Knife
* Screwdriver

*
Step1
Unplug the dryer and move it away from the wall. This will provide work space around the dryer.
*
Step2
Open the lint trap door and remove the two screws with a screwdriver. Pull out the lint screen.
*
Step3
Remove the console by unscrewing the four screws that connect it to the top. With the screws removed, disconnect the wiring harness and set the console aside.
*
Step4
Insert a putty knife between the top and front panel 2 inches from the corner. Press in to release the holding clip and pull up on the top panel to remove it from the clip.
*
Step5 With your hands, lift up on the corner to disengage the top from the remaining holding clips. Set the top aside.
Step6 There are two screws at the top of the front panel that secure it to the side panels. Remove the two screws with a screwdriver.
Step7. If equipped with a toe panel, insert a putty knife at the top center of the panel. Press in and release the retaining clip and pull the toe panel off by hand.
Step8. Place boards underneath the front of the drum. The boards will keep the drum in place when removing the front panel. Remove the front panel by swinging the top out and lifting it to remove from the bottom tabs.
Step9. The rear panel is removed by unscrewing the attaching screws from the side panels and bottom with a screwdriver. The dryer is now disassembled and all parts are accessible

Clothes seem to take longer to dry and I keep getting an E1 error code on my Whirlpool duet dryer. Model #GGW9209LW0. Dryer is about 8 years old. Lint is not an issue.


The error code E1 indicates the control senses an open thermistor either due to a loose connection or a failed thermistor. Check the thermistor connection to the control and replace the thermistor (part number 8577274) if the connections are good and snug fit.

Remove the two screws securing the toe panel to the cabinet then pull the panel down and out. Remove the hex-head screw from the lint duct bracket and remove the bracket. Remove the two hex-head screws from the lint duct and remove the lint duct.

Facing the rear of the dryer, the thermistor, usually black, is located on the blower housing to the right of the thermal fuse. Remove the two screws securing it to the blower housing and secure the new thermistor in place.

Connect the wires then reinstall the lint duct and the lint duct bracket. Slide the toe panel up into position to the cabinet and secure it.

How do you take the access panel off the bottom of the dryer to clean out the build up. There are two clips at the top of the panel below the door section. How can I remove the access/kick panel to clean...


Insert a putty knife about two inches in from each side (where the toe panel top seam meets the dryer front) to release the clips. With the clips released, the toe panel will open from the top and can be removed. You may want to also remove the air blower cover and clean inside the duct chute and the squirrel cage motor to ensure it is also free of lint. You will need to remove the lint filter BEFORE removing the cover or you will have difficulty removing it. If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: Make sure you UNPLUG the dryer PRIOR to servicing anything inside the cabinet. Dangerous voltage is still present even with the unit shut off.

How to remove the access panels....
There are many different styles of dishwashers built today. One of these should point you in the correct area's to look for the screws that hold the access panels on the dishwasher. Remember, remove power first.
The most common configuration of the access panels used today...
dwaccess.jpg
This is the newer "over sized" door, looks like a one panel front, but there still is small access panels on the very bottom....
dwaccess2.jpg
Some Asko Dishwashers....
2 Torx # 20 screws hold the toe plate on. Once toe plate is off, 2 Torx screw hold the lower panel on and the 2 brackets the hold the toe plate on have a springy locking tab, press the tab away from the bracket and the brackets will pull straight out. The service panel has 4 or 6 Torx screws holding it on, 2 are pointing up in the corners.

Motor and pump assembly screw and impellor help....

One of the most common question that I get on a dishwasher repair is "how does that motor and pump impellor screw come out?"
Inside many dishwasher pump assemblies is a screw that goes through the upper impellor and screws directly into the motor shaft. Since the motor shaft and screw are made of metal...you guessed it...they can / will rust. The screw can rust and become very tight and difficult to remove!! These screws are normally a right ( regular ) hand thread, socket or nut driver can be used to remove the screw. One hard thing to do is to hold the impellor still so the screw can be removed, they often just turn together. The impellor may be jammed with a screwdriver to hold it still so the screw can be removed...sometimes the impellor can be help still by placing a rag on it and hold tight with your hand, the rag will help prevent a sharp edge on the impellor from cutting your fingers. The odd time that screw is too rusted into place, soaking a little rust buster or 3in1 oil on it over night may help loosen it. Sometimes trying to tighten the screw a little at first will help break it free. There are some tool that can be purchased to help hold the impellor stillso the screw can be removed, these are only for a few models and pump assembly styles.


Anymore questions ask.
