SOURCE: My Asko dishwasher is not producing water

Hi, Welcome to FixYa. Based on your description that the dishwasher is indeed filling with water but not circulating, It sounds like a busted wash impeller within the main motor/circulation pump. First though, do you hear a quiet sound ( it will be super quiet if the wash impeller is broke so you have to either get right down with your ear to the bottom or run it with the door open by activating the door switch with a screw-driver ) of a motor once the unit has completed filling with water ? If so that is a tell tale of no wash action yet the motor runs, hence broken impeller. If you don't hear anything it may be a wire come off the main motor/circulation pump...but not likely. Let me know what you find and I'll try and help you move forward from there. Good luck, Macmarkus :)

SOURCE: ASKO 1885 Built-in Dishwasher: The water

Hi,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description and provided the dishwasher is indeed 1) an Asko 1885 and 2) filling with water, draining, heating, but not circulating, It sounds like a busted wash impeller within the main motor/circulation pump as you mentioned.

First though, do you hear a quiet sound of a motor starting once the unit has completed filling with water ?

( it will be super quiet if the wash impeller is broke as I suspect it may be...almost like a fountain, since the Asko are very quiet under normal conditions. You will have to either get right down with your ear to the bottom or run it with the door open by activating the door switch with a screw-driver and look for visual/audible clues )


If so that is a tell tale of no wash action yet the motor runs, hence broken impeller. If you don't hear anything it may be a wire come off the main motor/circulation pump...but not likely.

This unfortunately is common with Asko built dishwasher`s and it is a case of being a victim of their own design.

What happens typically is the ball-bearings from the upper rack holders ( which are plastic, hence fatigues due to heat and fall apart ) come out making their way into the sump, hence breaking the wash impeller from the motor.



Let me know what you find and I'll try and help you move forward from there. If you need direction to remove the circulation motor and pump I can do that, but it is a pretty involved repair and requires pulling the unit from the cabinet...you may opt to call in a pro.
I'll watch for your reply.
Regards,

Macmarkus :)

SOURCE: dishwasher pumps dry, adds and

Hi.

The impeller pump is probably faulty.

Before going for the pump check the drain well and drain hose, drain blockage may prevent the machine from switching to recirculate. Also double check there is no blockage or leak in lines to spray arms and that the orifices are not clogged.
Testing on the impeller is done energizing the pump to check if it switches to recirculate and accessing pump hose checking for blockage.

Other parts that must be tested are the door switch, that can interrupt the cycle, and the thermostat, that is used to determine when to start the impeller pump.

If pump and all the part mentioned above are OK, then the problem is a defective control module.

Our asko 3250 is leaving s film and the soap is not coming out of the reservoir. It just sticks in there. Thedishes also have a kind of crust on them.


Check to see that both upper and lower arms are working. You can do this by suddenly opening the diswasher about 6 in and observing if the wand arm on top is revolving. This is done by water from the lower arm being pumped up through a tube mounted in the lower basket that centers over the lower arm and upper arm. Check that the tube is clear. check that water from the lower arm center is being pumped. Check that the hole is clear. if you have hard water, then sometimes the holes get clogged up and the arm will not rotate.(just like a lawn sprinkler) The upper arm rotating is what washes the detergent out of the soap dispenser. To aid in cleaning the spray holes, pour some white vinegar in the bottom of the machine about two cups, and turn the machine on high temp wash. Do not let the mixture drain out untill you have cycled it about five times. When the wash cycle has about finished stop and restart. The acid in the vinegar will help disolve the calcium and hardened soap. After the finish rinse cycle, you can put a little lemon juice in the machine and let it was through, that way the vinegry smell will disapate.

On my d3350 it is possible to choose which tray (bottom, top or both) is cleaning.

The button is the bottom left, and above it there are two lights. As you push this button, the lghts cycle through lower tray, upper tray and the both trays. You want both lights on.

Also try this - take the spray arm out (it just snaps free) and rinse it out in case there are some blocking materials in the arm which are stopping it from spraying

Not sure if upper spray arm is working. Dishes on top shelf remain dirty. Lower arm works early in cycle but not top. Are they supposed to be working at the same time?


Something is blocking the extender from getting to top spayer arm. Push all drawers in and look to see if extender can be manually raised to arm. Slug buildup can effect a dishwasher also. clean with bleach and water. Pour bleach in the washer and run thru one cycle.

Pour 1 Cup of Muriatic Acid (Can be purchased at your local Pool Supply Store) into the bottom of the washer and a little in the soap dish. Run the Dishwasher through 5 cycles. Check to see If this helps. If not Try the same process with CLR house cleaner.

The dish washer is taking ages to wash and it not clean ing dishes well


ok so If your dishwasher has worked fine in the past but, suddenly, your dishes aren't clean after the dishwasher completes all cycles:
1) Check your water heater's temperature dial to be sure it hasn't been changed recently.
2) Be sure dishes haven't prevented the detergent dispenser from opening properly during the wash cycles or kept the spray arms from turning, the lower arm from rising, or the spray from reaching the upper rack's dishes.
3) During the wash cycle, listen to the spray arm spinning inside. If it seems to be spinning poorly, clean out the spray holes in the spray arm(s) with a stiff piece of wire; wait for the machine to cool, and then remove the spray arm(s) by unscrewing the hub cap and lifting the arm(s) off

I had this same problem. I think its the upper spray arm vibrating during wash cycle. To verify; prevent the upper arm from rotating by putting a long spatula through the top rack or zip tie the arm so it don't rotate. If the noise goes away you found your problem.

Dishes not getting clean


Yes I had the same problem and just fixed it for $7.00. Did not even had to take anything apart. This is what you will have to do. If this dosen't work then try what these experts are suggesting. Please follow these steps for optimal results. #1 Break off a plastic Tea spoon. #2 Put it in place of a LATCH to by pass so you can watch the operation of the dishwasher.(put down some towels for water spill) #3 start the dishwasher on normal cycle. #4 Pour in Gallon of White Vinegar($2.00) while the Dishwasher is being filled. #5 Let it run through its cycle. After the cycle is complete water will drain out and then actual cleaning cycle will start. Then #6 while the dishwasher is being filled again pour in 48 OZ or bigger bottle of CLR (Calciam Lime Rust) it is available at Meijer, walmart, Rite Aid, Home Depot Ace Menard's etc. for $5.00. sit by the dishwasher and listen for it. if you hear water draining pull and push the water plunger so it won't drain so you don't loose your CLR down the drain. since you have the spoon in the LATCH your dishwasher will always be on so BE CAREFUL when you stick your hand in it. And after the cycle is complete enjoy your NEW DISHWASHER.
