Re: Asko 1605 cycle stopped, pump keeps running, water...

There is probably water in the drip pan below that needs to be emptied or evaporated out. but if there is water ther is an internal leak such as a bad hose or door seal thats going to need fixed. The only way to stop the pump is unplug the unit or open up the bottom behind the toe kick and suck out all the water and find the leak by running it with the cover off till you see it. good Luck!

Same issue with mine... Tray fills and the wash cycle will not end. Sponge out the pan, re-set and your good to go for a couple of washes.

On closer look looks like a small leak in a corrigated tube and when the cycle starts a small spray of water leaks out causing the try to re-fill.

Now If I could figure out how to get in there and replace the tube I would be a happy camper.

Re: Asko 1605 cycle stopped, pump keeps running, water...

Well I've been doing dishers by hand for the last 3 weeks, what a pain in the backside. I thought a tech person would cost the earth so I've left it. This morning I got up searched for the how to fix it on the net and after about 2 hours of pulling it out and draining the tray underneath the dishwasher & cleaning the water up. The Asko dishwasher is now doing another load of dishers. Thanks to you all that wrote in.

Re: Asko 1605 cycle stopped, pump keeps running, water...

I know this is an old post but people still look these things up. Had and still have the same problem occasionally. It drove me mad for a while till I sat down and watched what was happening. I had no leaks underneath and found the water was overfilling and spilling to the overflow and filling the tray underneath. The problem is the fill sensors (they are thick plastic disks with wires coming out) which are two pressure switches attached underneath and above the overflow pan. They each have a black rubber hose running into them. If either of the hoses gets a blockage or a bubble of air the switch won't register that the fill cycle needs to finish. Unplug the black hose (MAKE SURE THE POWER IS DICONNECTED AT THE WALL BEFORE PULLING APART DISHWASHER) and let some water drain out and refit it on each of these. Remove water from tray below. Reassemble and try washing again. Hopefully this helps you if you are pulling your hair out like I was.

I have an Asko D-3122 dishwasner. When it is started on a normal wash cycle it drains, fills, heats the water if necessary and then stops. It does not go into the wash cycle. I assume the circulation...

If there is no sound of the circulation motor then it is faulty. But if the circulation pump sound is coming but water is not circulating then you need to check the wash arms for blockage.

Cycle starts, but does not fill with water

When I start a new cycle, I first hear the pump run to empty out all remaining water, and after that I hear the motor run for the regular washing cycle, but there is no water in the dishwasher. After a few minutes, the cycle stops, and the washer claims the dishes are 'clean'. When I try starting a new cycle over and over again, about one in 20 times, the cycle will run normally with water. But then the next time, the problem starts all over again. Once a cycle starts correctly, everything works fine, including the rinsing.

I have a problem with my Asko D3350 Dishwasher, can you help? On startup the diswasher does its normal cycle and pumps excess water out and then fills the dishwasher with water to the correct level of...

Hi Tony,

I have the same machine (D3350) and almost the same problem.

Mine starts each cycle fine - pumps out - fills - rinses - pumps out tht first load and then does not fill again. If I manually fill with a bottle (about 2 litres) for each subsequent cycle then it washes as well as it ever did.

Seeing it fills once it cannot be the water supply, nor the solenoid that operate the water supply. So, my guess is the control panel.

Like you I would love to simply take advantage of the PC Upgradeable featurewshich seemed so attractive at the time of pruchase.

Kenmore Model @16969990 Washing water doesn't pump out, cycle doesn't finish, attemptes to run other cycles default to "normal wash"

The drain cycle does not complete as the drain pump is not working the pump out the water. So unless the drain level comes down to reset the water level controller the program does not progress further.
So check the voltage during the drain cycle if voltage is present then the drain pump is faulty if not the main controller is faulty.
replace accordingly.

I have an ASKO D3250 and it has recently started making a loud noise from the pump area. It starts as soon as the cycle begins and doesn't stop even if you open the door. It seems to stop about 90 seconds...

All power and sounds should stop when any dishwasher door is opened.
Your door switch may be stuck causing it to continue.
The 90 second sound at the beginning of the cycle is the water pump extracting any residual water before taking on clean water for the wash cycle.
Any excessive noise from the drain pump could be debris in the pump. e.g. broken glass.
You can remove the pump and check it for blockage or any foreign object.

Just installed a used asko 1805 dishwasher it stopped on the rinse cycle and kept sucking in air lights were flashing and no buttons responded

Please check these,
1)Water-heating cycle

Water-heating cycle
Many dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What happens next, depends, as follows:

* On some units, the pause is timed and the unit continues after the allotted time.

* On others, the cycle can't continue until the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of dishwasher and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle problem" is fixed too.

Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it.

The light blinks may be due to faults with water fill. You can try this out to see if it helps,
1. Disconnect the power to the unit

2. Remove the lower access panels and check the tray under the dishwasher (you will probably find it is full of water)

3. Use a towel or a sponge to remove the water

4. There is a float that should stop the operation of the dishwasher and run the pump if water is in this tray. Check this pump to see if it is functional

5. Test the dishwasher

6. If there are no leaks from the dishwasher into the pan, check the drain hose under the sink

7. THE DRAIN HOSE MUST RUN UP TO THE TOP OF THE UNDERSIDE OF THE COUNTERTOP THEN DOWN TO THE DRAIN. (If the hose is not set up like this, water from the sink drain will flow into the dishwasher and overfill the tray)

ASKO 1605

Hi Guys
My dishwasher this morning has desided to not work correctly.
Its a ASKO 1302 about 20 years old. It has been a very good machine.
Over the last couple of weeks during the washing cycle, the dishwasher has been making a loader noise than usual.
1. Today, the dishwasher timer, travels all the way through its cycle, but very little washing take place.
2. Soap power is still there, plates not clean!!!!
3. Water is hot
4. At the end of the cycle, there is no water in the dishwasher.
5. I'm thinking the problem could be the pump needs replacing.
What do you think?

Kenmore dishwasher various problems

The portable dishwashers of the 70's and 80's often had one area of problem, and that was the pump getting jammed with debris and food.

To eleminate this problem, you will need to open up your dishwasher carefully, and drain all the water and gunk from your dishwashers rinse hose. I recommend taking the machine outside and use a low setting pressure hose (garden hose). With the hose off the rinse side, run the water through and see if it comes out of the pump's housing. Let it run for a few minutes.

The pump also has a switch that also goes with the run cycle. This switch thinks there is not enough water or it thinks it has done its job.

Sometimes replacing the timer helps, but first eliminate the lower hose situation first. If that doesn't help, you will need to then replace timer. If this doesn't help, most likely your pump is most likely jammed or malfunctioning.

Asko 1585 Dishwasher

do they flash lik all on one side then the other? Start a cycle, then open the door. Do the lights flash the same way when you open the door as when it stops? if soyou may have a door that needs to be adjusted so it closes better. when the cycle ends, is there any standing water in the bottom? if so you may have a poorly routed drain hose or a partial clog in it. Last, pull the bottom panels off and look inside the bottom of the dishwasher and see if there is standing water down there . If ther is you have aleak somewhere or a bad drain pump. You r only other choice is a bad pressure switch. If youve already adjusted the water fil to the proper level ( just up to the grey plastic housing that the lower wash arm sits on) tehre really aernt any more options. Hope this helps!

If I'm not mistaken, these dishwashers are built by Asko for Viking. If thats the case then you probably have a bad circulation pump. Under Asko's warranty (not sure if Viking is the same) these pumps are covered parts and labor for 3 years from installation date, and 5 years for the part only. The pump is accesed from the back of the machine,so you have to pull out the dishwasher. Then you remove the lower plate in the rear and the motor at the very back center is the pump. You remove it by turning it about a 1/4 turn either clockwise or counter clockwise, depending on the style, then place the new one in and turn it to lock it in place, being careful that the sealing oring stays in place or youll get a leak. The part will probably cost you around $150 unless viking marks theirs up more than Asko. Good Luck!
