Asko W6021 keeps filling with water

Hi, this just happened yesterday, almost 30mins to the end of the wash, it's stuck at "water keeps filling the tub". 

 

I turned the power off and water is still coming into the tub.  Guess it could be a valve problem or something? i don't know, taking a wild guess.

 

I finally had to turn the water hose off and drain the tub.  Once I turn the hose back on, water is filling the tub again whether or not the machine is on or off.

 

Please let me know if you have a solution

    so how do i fix it if you may know?  I took apart the top, but am looking for a way to take apart either the back panel or the side panel so I can reach the small hoses leading from the switch (disc object) down to the tub.

CHECK TO SEE IF THE DRAIN HOSE IS RAISED ABOVE THE REQUIRED HEIGHT. IF THE WATER IS OVER FLOWING THE TUB THEN IT IS USUALLY THE A BLOCKAGE IN THE PRESSURE SWITCH HOSE, OR SOME INABILITY OF THE WATER LEVEL SWITCH TO MEASURE THE AMOUNT OF WATER IN THE TUB.

Tip

Asko W6021 would not fill with water


Our W6021 front has had a couple of instances where it would not start the fill cycle as usual. Normally it would be switched on,the relay would operate and the water would begin to enter the bowl. We tried a number of things including checking the hose and inlet filter for blockage. We then checked the outlet drain pump trap and found a coin and a drill bit lodged in the entry hole to the trap. Once the foreign objects were removed ,the machine operated as normal once again. I will be very careful in future to empty my pockets of metal things.

Flashing but nothing happening


A-- If you hear the water filling for 3 minutes before the lights flash, 2 things could be happening:
a.1) water never reached the proper fill/run level so the computer prevents the heater from starting and alerts the user. There should be a code list in the troubleshooting section of the user manual describing the blinking lights and what they mean.
Solution- verify by sound if water flows at the same rate as the sink tap, if not then shut off the water and check the inside the connection hose for debris against the screen inside the hose end or insid ethe machine end where there is a intake valve. The debris keeps sediment out so it works but there's no auto cleaner for the screen.
a.2) Otherwise the heater itself is faulty meaning it does not conduct an electrical path or maybe overheating (could be dry) and the computer senses the wrong temperature either too high or too low.
Solution- A service call to determine the reason why; heater continuity, water valve, heater relay, hi-temp fuse, etc.

B-- Now, if you do NOT hear water filling for those first 3 minutes, 3 things could be happening;
b.1) House water supply is turned off.
b.2) hose is clogged (see solution a.1 above)
b.3) Drain pump inside dishwasher was clogged during the last run and old water didn't drain out (maybe some water is evident in the tub bottom).
Solution- Most dishwashers start each wash cycle with 30 second drain pump running to make sure the tub is completely emptied so the next fill cycle can't overfill. This ensures that if the user finds a 3 liter pot that flipped over during the last wash and if they dump that full pot of water into the unit to make it lighter, that the water will get drained before the new water enters the tub.
If the drain pump is clogged reset the power and restart the wash cycle. Note how much water is in the tub and see if it goes down any during those 30 seconds by opening the door afterwards. Find the clog either a bone or plastic bag or some small pice of a childs toy is stuck in the drain pump or the other end is clogged maybe by grease or bones if you have a sink disposal unit. The things they grind up drop into the drain 1" inch above the hole for the dishwasher drain tube.
NOTE: There is also an overfill [float] switch if the water inlet valve gets stuck open and the water keeps filling, the drain pump is switched on until someone comes and shuts off the water supply. When the tub drains the float drops and the drainpump stops. This will also make lights blink so check the user manual for codes or call the factory service reps [1-877-337-3639].
Either way, there should be instructions to reset the machine for restart. If it doesn't reset you need someone to fix the control that tripped the unit, maybe a safety fuse or a broken piece of the puzzle.

Asko W6021 won't fill. It clicks and starts, but no water fills drum. I've cleaned drain trap but don't know how to clean inlet filter as suggested in manual.


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
The water inlet filters are inside where the hot and cold water supply hoses screw into the machine. Turn the water off, unscrew the hoses and they should be visible. However it might not be those causing the machine not to fill. If they needed cleaning the water would fill- but taking longer each wash.
If you confirm the filters are clear, it is more likely to be symptomatic of a malfunctioning water control valve- the hot water one, if the washer is hot and cold fill, or the cold one if it is just cold fill!
Sorry but it needs replacing and a service call ;-0(
Good luck,

I have an ASKO W6021 Quattro 1200 RPM. It does not complete the wash cycle. If I turn the know to rinse, it does rinse and completes. I tried it without any clothes in it and it does the same thing. I also...


Check that the cold water is turned on. The washing machine uses cold water to rinse, and if the cold water is not on, unit will end without completing cycle.

Water keeps running and doesnt fill up on large and medium loads


Your pressure switch stops the water and allows it to start the next cycle. It's a switch either in the control panel or at the top of the tub with a small tube connected to it which goes down between the inner and outer tub. As the water level increases the air in the tube is compressed until there is enough pressure to make the switch stopping the water from filling. This tube can get clogged and the switch won't work. Remove the tube and clean it out. Blowing on the tube when it's still connected to the switch will make the switch if it's working and clear.



If it fills with water and starts the cycle and the water keeps running in then your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is sticking. It needs replacing.

Lost water pressure temporarily, now water valve will not shut off in between wash cycles. broken valve? replace? reboot??


You will probably have to replace the fill valve. when you lost then regained water pressure debris must have gotten into fill valve not allowing it to seat properly and shut off the water flow
