SOURCE: Asko 1705 Dishwasher won't fill.
The issue is most likely in the fill valve itself(around 90% of the time). This is located behind the toe kick on the right hand side of the machine. the valve can be checked manually by using a jumper cord connected to 110V power and directly attaching it to the valve electrical terminals. First shut off the dishwasher power at the house breaker panel. Remove the electrical connections at the fill valve. attach the jumper cord and power the valve directly. if there is no water entering the machine then the valve needs replacement. If there is water then proceed below.
There have been some issues with wiring to the fill valve. You will have to carefully inspect the wires beneath the toekick for breakage.You will need to have a torx 15 or 20 handy to remove the screws( if installed properly) ther will be several brown or grey wires in a bundle on the lower right hand side beneath the door.
Use extreme caution when working with electrics.
Ideally have a technician verify the problem for you.

Welcome to FixYa.
Yes the upper rack is pretty straight forward, but the bearings are tricky.
Here's what works for me, move the rack stops to the left if you haven't already and then the rack itself.
Now you'll need to remove the bumpers at the back of the rack rail...
push down on the bumper as shown
and pull it down and out at the same time...it takes some force as evident by my finger tip ha ha, you can use a small screwdriver...I'm just stubborn.
Now you'll need to slide the rail all the way out as shown, but careful not to let the ball bearings fall into the sump area in the process.
I usually hold the broken piece in place while removing the rail...
The trick now is to install the balls into the holders first...
and the holders into the stationary part of the rail on the inside wall...
The inside wall rail will keep the holders in place as you slide the inside rail into place...this will usually require holding the holder with one hand while pushing the sliding rail back into place...
Once this is done, re-install the back rail bumpers followed by the rack and then finally the front rack stoppers and that should do it.
Hope that explain it for you or gives you an idea of how it needs to be done.
Thanks for visitng "fixya" today for your repair help. Let me know if you require further assistance.
I should also mention you as I alluded to, be sure none of the old 8 ball bearings didn't fall down into either the drain pump or circulation/wash pump. This is something I've seen far too often on Asko dishwashers with the end result being a broken impeller in either pump...or both, yikes ! I use a telescopic magnet to fish around as it will be the only object made of metal...unless something else has fallen in the sump well area, it's good to check.
Again, good luck :)
