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.

SOURCE: asko 1875 had a new main board, wax motor and

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....


macmarkus_284.jpg


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.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Dead circulation pump capacitor: I have an Asko


Capacitor should have a uF and voltage rating stamped on it. They are NOT a one-size-fits-all.
Always keep your Owners Manuals so you can use it to get parts. Without seeing it myself, the part will probably have to be replaced.
Sometimes you can find the manufacturer online and get parts through their website.
Possibly find this capacitor at an AC shop.

Replacing wax motor


Not very difficult actually. Strip of the screws around the inside of front door, and the two on top of the panel. Twist of the fan cover, and then the wax is attached with a Torx 10.

After the cycle was done I opened the machine and emptied the dishes but a noise on the door sounds like the machine is still running. I pushed on Start/Stop for 5 seconds or more and nothing happened. ...


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa,

I think what you are describing is the "turbo fan" assembly. This device is used to remove the condensation to insure dishes are dry at the end of a cycle. It actually vent`s out the bottom left side via a plastic housing but the vent motor assembly is located inside the door at the upper left corner under the circular cover shown here, i.e.

macmarkus_137.jpg

If it (the fan) continues to run or "hums" because it`s trying to run, even when the dishwasher is idle or no program has been selected, it is likely a problem within` the control board unfortunately.

This is usually caused by the vent assembly getting clogged up so it cannot open correctly and the "wax motor" ( the small device which open`s and closes the vent ) burns up and short`s out the control board.

You can see the small wax motor in this image, the brown/red brick shaped device on top of the fan housing...

i.e.

macmarkus_138.jpg

If you`re capable, you can visually inspect the control and look for burnt up path ways on the printed circuit side ( green side with lot`s of solder joints ). It may be pretty obvious as soon as you see the control as it was with this one I attached here, i.e.

macmarkus_139.jpg

If it is damaged you`ll need to replace the control as well as the fan assembly, or clean the assembly really well before operating with the new board.

To do so is as follows. (I've done it many times so I know it works)

macmarkus_145.jpg

Clean all the fan blade a vent thoroughly and reassemble with the new wax motor and control and you should be good to go.

You may opt to just replace the entire fan assembly, it is available and comes as shown here complete,

i.e.

macmarkus_146.jpg

Most Asko control`s come with a new "wax motor"...or used to where I live. Unfortunately those control`s retail for about $400 and up, and most now are of the "rebuilt/refurbished" kind. The part number should be ( if the model number is correct ) # 8801201.

Hope this help`s move you forward. Let me know either way and I`ll try to assist you further.

Thank`s for visiting FixYa today for your repair solution`s and good luck moving forward. Please take a moment to rate the info I provided for you today and again good luck.

Maytag Neptune not spinning - further help pls if you can


Hi Charles,

If your door latch wax motor actuator pin color matches the body color (brownish color) then you have the defective wax motor and it needs to be replaced. See www.neptunewaxmotor.com for step by step disassembly photos. Then, I would check the machine control board (located behind the timer in upper console) for a burnt resistor, R11 which is located near the left circuit board mounting slot. If the R11 is burnt you can try the STAGE 1 repair kit, which includes a new R11 resistor and Q6 triac and wax motor or you can purchase a new control board. Don't forget to unplug machine when servicing your Neptune.

You can try to solder the new R11 and Q6 into the machine control board as there is a video on the above mentioned site that shows you how to perform the R11 and Q6 replacement. Another option is to call local t.v. repair shops and see if they will replace the components for you for a nominal fee. I hope this helps
