SOURCE: new install; where to hook up old wiring/plug to ASKO

There should be an installers/repair guide folded up behind the front panel. Check for that as it will show a wireing diagram. I won't be able to get any info until Jan 2. Let me know what you find.

I had to slide the dishwasher forward (undercounter installation)and tip it forward as far as possible. Water leaks onto floor, but then the internal controller seems to reset and the ASKO now works normally again. What kind of idiot would design a control module that does not incorporate a power-off interlock? FAIL FAIL FAIL - Bad, ASKO, Bad. Go to your room.

SOURCE: Our 4 year old Asko D3121 dishwasher has stopped

I would check the voltages around the heater before replacing it. Sometimes the thermal overload relay opens out and shuts off the power. Could be a more simpler to replace than the whole heater.

Disconnect the power source to your dishwasher before you conduct this or any other test. Either unplug the unit from the wall outlet, remove the appropriate fuse from the fuse box, or flip the appropriate breaker in the circuit breaker panel. Locate your dishwasher's heating element. Open the dishwasher door and look into the tub. It is the thin, circular tube at the base of your dishwasher. It may or may not be covered. If it is covered, remove the lower dishrack, and then remove the cover.
Your heating element is going to have two metal terminals. One at each end. Each terminal reaches downwards, into the base of the dishwasher. Mentally mark the area where each terminal enters the base of the tub.
Now you need to gain access to the heating element's wiring. You can do this by first removing the lower kickplate panel of the dishwasher. There will be at least two screws (but maybe four) holding the kickplate panel in place. They are located either on the top or the bottom of the panel. If the screws are located on the top, you may need to open the dishwasher door in order to gain access to them. Close the door to remove the panel, though.
Now look into the lower access area that you have just uncovered. Pinpoint the area where the heating element terminals extend through the base of the dishwasher. They will each have a wire connected to it. Label each of the wires so that you will be able to properly reconnect them later. Now you can pull the wires off the terminals.
Each wire is connected to a terminal using a slip-on connector. Grasp the connector and pull on it firmly.
DO NOT pull on the wire itself. Pull only from the connector. You may decide you need to use a pair of needle nosed pliers to help you.
Both terminals are secured in place with a lock nut. You can use a crescent wrench or a pair of pliers to losen, and then remove each lock nut. Reach into the dishwasher and lift the element out. Discard it. Situate your new heating element in place of the old one. Slip the terminals through the holes in the base of the dishwasher. Replace each of the lock nuts. Use a crescent wrench or a pair of pliers to tighten them in place. Now reattach each of the wires - remember, you labeled them earlier so you'd know which one leads to which terminal. Put the lower kickplate panel back in place. If you removed a heating element cover, replace it now. Replace the lower dishrack, and close the dishwasher door. Restore power to your dishwasher.

Dryer working fine, but no heat, clothes not drying


not knowing what kind of dryer hard to help you out.. if it is a standard dryer most of time back panel can be removed and access gained to heater and thermostat ... you want to gain access to the heater area and unplug unit ... taking a multi meter check the heater by removing 2 power wires and checking contuinity to heater... should read through heater and if your meter has a tone on the ohms reading should beep at you.. check the limit/thermost the same way by removing wires to it and testing.. prior to doing all this make sure the vent pipe is clear all the way through and that you actually have correct voltage to unit.. even though unit comes on it will run off 120 volts ,but the heating element requires 220-245 volts to operate... test power at the back of dryer and make sure across the power cord you actually have full power...good luck to you

My ASKO D3100 dishwasher has no hot water


Hi there,


Well the heating element in the dishwasher might be faulty or not working properly. To check the heating element - Locate your dishwasher's heating element. Open the dishwasher door and look into the tub. It is the thin, circular tube at the base of your dishwasher. It may or may not be covered. If it is covered, remove the lower dishrack, and then remove the cover. 

Your heating element is going to have two metal terminals. One at each end. Each terminal reaches downwards, into the base of the dishwasher. Mentally mark the area where each terminal enters the base of the tub.
Now you need to gain access to the heating element's wiring. You can do this by first removing the lower kickplate panel of the dishwasher. There will be at least two screws (but maybe four) holding the kickplate panel in place. They are located either on the top or the bottom of the panel. If the screws are located on the top, you may need to open the dishwasher door in order to gain access to them. Close the door to remove the panel, though. 

Now look into the lower access area that you have just uncovered. Pinpoint the area where the heating element terminals extend through the base of the dishwasher. They will each have a wire connected to it. Label each of the wires so that you will be able to properly reconnect them later. Now you can pull the wires off the terminals.
Each wire is connected to a terminal using a slip-on connector. Grasp the connector and pull on it firmly. 
DO NOT pull on the wire itself. Pull only from the connector. You may decide you need to use a pair of needle nosed pliers to help you. you need a multimeter to check the heating element....... post comments for more help or information......

Good Luck!!

DEF appears on freezer door and freezes up.


deF error means that you need to defrost the unit. Leave the unit unplugged overnight and defrost completely.
