Asko w6424 experiencing incomplete drainage during spin cycle

My Asko W6424 is not draining completely during the spin. The drainage pump seems to be working as it is being emptied, but it is not draining completely when spinning. I can hear the pump run and water is draining, the impeller is spinning and the coin trap is empty.

Check the brushes oin the motor. It's the most normal fault when this problem appears. Not a big thing to fix for a technician!

SOURCE: Water doesn't drain

you could have a bad drain pump.
have you checked the hoses that come from the bottom of the tub to the drain pump for anything that might be stuck in there,also check the hose that comes off the drain pump to the wall and look for an obstruction.

SOURCE: getting f3 error message checked

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Here is an extract of my guidance notes on checking filter and motor. Try the last paragraph in particular-
POWER OFF FIRST
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. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

SOURCE: Kenmore HE3: error code 02

Hi.

When the drain system is OK the problem is usually the pressure switch. Moreover the SUDS error points in direction of the switch. Detergent in excess may clog the pressure hose connected to the switch. The pressure sensor integrated with the switch will not work properly and you get the drain problem.

The pressure switch detects the water level and among other things determines when to start/stop the drain pump. The pressure switch looks like a plastic disk with 4 contacts (3 depending on model). The switch is connected to a long rubber hose that goes inside the tub. The part is located in the control panel.
The first maintenance consists in cleaning the hose attached to the switch that can be clogged with suds (detergent).
If that does not work and the drain system is OK, the switch is usually replaced, as the part is difficult to test. The switch can be tested reading impedance across its contacts with tub empty and full. The switch must close two of the 4 contacts depending on what condition is met. Test must be done with power off.

Before replacing the switch make sure that the drain hose height and settings are correct or the problem will be siphoning rather than a defective pressure switch. Clean the switch hose before replacing the part.

If the pressure switch and drain lines are OK the parts that may be responsible are the electronic control board or the drain pump itself.

Since there was a SUDS code the problem is likely the switch.

Here a service manual for Duet
, which is the Whirlpool model corresponding to Kenmore HE3 (Whirlpool built your He3, Kenmore only put the name on it).

Sounds like the inlet water valve is not seated properly and is letting water in when it shouldn't .

Asko WCAM1812 makes noise when draining


I recently had this same problem. There is a spinning wheel inside the pump that has likely detached from the motor. Upon removing the back of the unit, you will see a water pump on the bottom left of the unit. There are three screws attaching the pump to the rest of the assembly, remove the screws and detach the motor, out should pop out a red spinning wheel. I Gorilla glued mine back on, and it sounds better than before the grinding noise.

I have an asko w600 front load washer, seems to wash ok, but will not go into spin cycle, drain pump operates - slowly, but does not start spin cycle. saw somewhere on net that pump may be faulty


Hello Greg, welcome to FixYa.
To address your post of the washer not spinning and your curiosity of a faulty pump...the pump may simply be obstructed preventing a proper drain, thus a compromised spin, they are directly related. These frontloaders will not spin until they drain sufficiently. (though a faulty drain pump is possible, it woud be the exception, not the rule).
There is typically a drain filter in the pump as you may or may not know, based on your description it may be clogged. You'll need to access it, clean it out via draining it through the pump "emergency drain hose" before you can in the end open the door (though usually once drained to a safe level it will open under normal procedures) however there should be a door lock release on Asko built machines...including the W600 series.
This is the procedure for machines of the past 10yrs. or so...(this is only an example, it may not be exact but essentially the same as yours)

Hopefully this will help. Let me know if anything is unclear or If I can assist you going forward. Thank you for choosing FixYa and good luck going forward.
Regards,
Macmarkus :)

My Asko washer does not complete the wash cycle. It does not rinse the clothes.


Hi, With the Asko there are several possible things that can interupt the cycle either during wash or drain/spin. Have you checked the pump insert/button trap for debris or obstruction of any kind ? ( below main door to the left ) Are you using "he" ( lo-sudsing ) detergent ? Does the machine provide any error code, i.e. If it's a mechanical timer model does it stop at "C" or "S" or if electronic a symbol in the display ? Will it complete a cycle without any items in the basket ( empty ) ? Will the unit rorate in both directions and will it spin if you try both parts of that specific cycle ? This will help determine if the problem is with the drive motor brushes. Let me know, any answer you can provide here will put us closer to a solution to your washer problem. If you could confirm the model number that would be very helpful too. Thanks and good luck, I will try and reply as soon as I see you've posted a response. Macmarkus :)

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

I have an asko 11505 clothes washer. For some reason, it is not going through all of the spinning cycle, it spins for a short time, then stops abrutely. I cleaned the coin stop, cleaned out all water...


My Asko 11505 washer fills only a little water then shuts off. If I drain the washer with the drain hose from under the machine, then the machine will start up and fill enough water to fill the hose again, then shut off.

My Asko W6441 front load washer F3 message


Hello. You said that you checked the drain line for obstructions, but did you check the pump? I would remove the hoses from the pump and using a flashlight, look into the suction port on the pump. Check the pump for any obstructions (like the occasional stray sock) and check the pump impellers. Look for broken/missing blades and ensure that the impeller spins freely. If there are missing/broken blades or if you cannot get the impeller to spin freely, the pump is defective. You may have already done this, and if so I apologize. Anyway, hope this helped and best wishes.

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.

Water in drain pump for ASKO D5122XXL dishwasher


Yes, Asko dishwashers can leave a small amount of water in the sump after a cycle completes. At the beginning of most cycles the sump is pumped and new water added.
