ASKO 1385 not filling after overfill protection was turned on
Our dishwasher is more than 10 years old since this house was built. It ran fine until recently there was a water overfill due to clogged sink. After we fixed the clogged sink, the dishwasher will not fill water at any cycle but can still be turned 'on'. We suspect the inlet valve was closed by the overfill protection.

If when turned on the dishwasher sounds like it is running the drain pump, and does this in any cycle setting, it is possible that the drain pan below the unit has filled with water. Check this post for more details.

Based on your descriptionIt is likely nothing very serious.
The "F2" with Asko dishwashers means the control is indicating an overfill has been detected. Whether the unit has actually overfilled or not remains to be seen, but to reset it is fairly simple...if nothing else is at fault.
**before proceeding turn the dishwasher power off via the home breaker panel, or unplug it from the wall if that is possible...most are hard wired to the home electrical...safety first**
The first thing to do is remove the toe panel/kick plate and inspect the base for water. If water is present, with the aid of a sponge, towels, or a wet-dry shop vacuum, absorb the water from the base.
By way of removing the water from the overfill basin should "reset" the unit. If the unit works fine after resetting the power/breaker it can likely be chalked up to a drain back-up or obstruction in the drain hose or pump.
Try this and let me know what you find and I`ll assist you in moving forward if necessary.
The control board on these units is prone to a cold solder joint cracking. I have read that Bosch recommends replacement and will supply the board, not covering labor. I repaired mine prior and have done one for a friend as well. Has lasted several years and counting The symptom is constant cycling without ticking down the last few minutes
There is a new part that replaces the Overfill Pressure Switch part number 8058474. It is now part number 8071024 available from ASKO part sellers. The hose inlet on the new part has what looks like a blockage. It actually "dampens" the effect of the pressure sent through the small hose attached. The old part does not have this "damper" This pressure switch works in conjunction with the flood protection switch in the bottom pan of the dishwasher.
It sound like you have a blocked or a malfunction pump.
Remove the pump from the machine and check whether you have a clogged inside the pump or in one of the pipes connected to it.
In case all is clean, you should replace the pump..
Good luck !
Is there water in the drip pan? My asko developed a leaky inlet solenoid, which would fill the drip pan eventually causing a failure. If the water evaporated, the washer would run. Normally, there should be no water in the drip pan.
I have been working on ASKO for several years and have never seen one fill and drain at the same time. Usually if it drains and cannot be stopped, it is because there is water in the lower tray that needs to be removed or left to evaporate, and then it needs to be figured out why the water was there in the first place. If you could post back with more info (does it fill, sit for a while, then drain, or is it doing both at once) I would be glad to help.
