Question about Asko D3122XLSS Stainless Steel Dishwasher
I replaced my burnt out wax motor but i didnt take notice as to which way the plug came off as it can go both ways does it matter
Can plug in either way. If was meant only one way, the plug would have a blocking protrusion on one side. Plus the motor will run only one direction no matter which side is the hot side of the wires. As long as is getting power, it will work.

Have a look to make sure that the pump and drain hose are unblocked. If they are, you might have to call Asko and arrange a service call.

Hello, welcome to FixYa.
Based on your description and provided the dishwasher is indeed 1) an Asko 1875 and 2) filling with water, draining, heating, but not circulating, It sounds like a busted wash impeller within the main motor/circulation pump, unfortunately.
First though, do you hear a quiet sound of the wash motor starting once the unit has completed filling with water ? And be sure the unit is actually filling with water, this image below indicates the normal water level to look for....
The pump 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 and try to help in any manner I can.

Testimonial: "yes the motor does sound. It seem like a normal wash cycle until you open it up and nothing is washed. Is this expensive to fix. Carol"
