Question about Asko D1976 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

How do I test the float switch and the pressure switch in an Asko D1976 dishwasher? Getting F2 with no water in the pan or in the machine.

Had to replace the ring which holds the pump casing up to the dishwasher floor. It was cracked so water was leaking, triggering the float in the pan and the F2 alarm. Re-installed the pump, pump casing (with existing float switch) and pressure switch. Plugged in, got the F2 code. Water not even turned on to the machine yet. Can't clear the F2 code. Tube to pressure switch is clear. I probably jostled the wires to the pressure switch and or float switch while replacing the pump casing, but all seem tight now. Is the float switch normally open or normally closed? I don't have the wiring diagram. Where can I get one? Thank you! Eric

Pump continually running with F2 displayed.


There is water in the lower pan that you must access by removing the toe kick plate and then the panel behind it. you will see water in the overflow area. Clean that out and all will be well. Asko's are awesome dishwashers that capture any water they may overflow or leak internally instead of it going on your floor, then a float switch triggers the F2 error and runs the drain pump.

D1976 machine won't do anything but pump out.


The flood switch must have tripped. This is likely to happen if there is a water leakage.

If you can pull the dishwasher out (after turning off the power and water connections) and tilt it on one side. Wait a little (to let the switch dry up) and then turn it on.


Hope this helps.

Hi I had f2 flash up on the control panel so we drained it and turned it back on it now shows 5 on the control panel and wont do anything else it is a ASKO D1976


Hi

Error F2 in asko dishwashers indicate high water level. This may happen due to plugged drain pump or due to faulty water inlet valve. To resolve the issue remove the back plate and check the drain pump. Disconnect the hoses from the drain pump and clear the lint from the hose and the pump area. Lot of water would be there when you'll remove the hose from the pump, be ready to collect it. Let it dry and now the dishwasher will work perfectly now. Hope it helps...

Our Asko D3112 was not draining, so we had maintenance drain the hoses to clear any blockage but it did nothing. They said it must be our pump not working. I ran one more cycle to see if things went back...


Check your manual to see if you have a drain pan at the bottom of the unit, and a 'float' that checks for water collecting there. On at least some Asko models, water collecting in the pan causes the float to rise, which then changes the operation of the dishwasher. Once that float switch turns on, the diskwasher will always run the drain pump whenever power is applied.
If this is the case for your machine, remove the kick panel. There likely is another panel behind that which covers the 'internals', including the drain pan area. You'll have to remove all of the water in the pan, and that will lower the float and return the controller to normal operation. THen you will have to diagnose the cause of the water collecting in the pan.
Another possibility is damage to the float such that it has turned on it's switch despite no water collecting in the drain pan. I've heard that in some cases a mouse will chew on the float and damage it, causing such machine operation.
In another thread, I posted my solutions to one cause of water collecting in the drain pan. In that case the drain pump was no longer reliably moving water out of the sump area inside the dishwasher. I had thought it was the manual dial control on my d1706 unit, until I learned that the dishwasher has this 'special' drain pan mode.
