Asko D3250 Bottom arm not moving

I have an Asko D3250 and the bottom arm does not move during the cycle. I have removed it and looked down hole and there does not appear to be any blockage. Upper arm works fine. I have checked the upper/lower switch and it is in the correct position. Any ideas?

    This will be the third time this happened to me.
    The first two times it was under warranty and the repairman took care of it.
    The problem is a minute amount of water leaked onto the wires to the diverter valve harness causing a short. The voltage to the diverter value is very high (120V). I saw visible electrical damage to the harness on wires 1 & 2. This short ruined the diverter value ($125) as well as the control unit ($250). The new control unit has new software requiring the turbid sensor to be replaced. There is no such sensor on my D3450 as far as I can tell, so the circulation pump isn't working, but the diverter value is.

PUMP WONT SHUT OFF after wash cycle


The reason our Asko D3250 had this problem was because of a leak. The pump hose (approx. 2" black rubber hose - find it here http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Pump-Hose/8801409/1810263) was split, causing a leak and the blinking heavy wash light. The sensor did its job and picked up the leak.
If you're handy you don't necessarily need to call a repairman in to accomplish the work. You don't need to pull the front of the dishwasher apart. Unplug the power to the dishwasher. Take off the back bottom panel. Next, test where the leak is coming from. Place pans below the holes found on the bottom of the dishwasher. They are visible when removing the back panel and are most likely at the rear of the dishwasher. Plug the power back in then start the dishwasher. If your problem is a leak, you will easily spot it with a flashlight. After ordering and installing your part, make sure to dry all water that has settled in the bottom of the dishwasher. You can easily accomplish this through the back of the dishwasher with the panel removed. If it's still damp the sensor will continue to detect water. Once dry, start the cycle to make sure there are no more leaks before reinstalling the panel.

Our asko 3250 is leaving s film and the soap is not coming out of the reservoir. It just sticks in there. Thedishes also have a kind of crust on them.


Check to see that both upper and lower arms are working. You can do this by suddenly opening the diswasher about 6 in and observing if the wand arm on top is revolving. This is done by water from the lower arm being pumped up through a tube mounted in the lower basket that centers over the lower arm and upper arm. Check that the tube is clear. check that water from the lower arm center is being pumped. Check that the hole is clear. if you have hard water, then sometimes the holes get clogged up and the arm will not rotate.(just like a lawn sprinkler) The upper arm rotating is what washes the detergent out of the soap dispenser. To aid in cleaning the spray holes, pour some white vinegar in the bottom of the machine about two cups, and turn the machine on high temp wash. Do not let the mixture drain out untill you have cycled it about five times. When the wash cycle has about finished stop and restart. The acid in the vinegar will help disolve the calcium and hardened soap. After the finish rinse cycle, you can put a little lemon juice in the machine and let it was through, that way the vinegry smell will disapate.

Hi, I have an ASKO D3250 dishwasher and it keeps stopping during the wash cycle and flashing the heavy pots and pots symbol simultaneously. I tried cleaning the filter basket and found a little plastic...


The part is a cap for the drain pump. You can put it back into position by removing the filters and placing it to the left of where the circular filter would be positioned. The part goes in with the part numbers on the bottom facing down. When positioned it should not interfere with the threads for the circular filter. You may have to scoop out the water in the bottom, to have a better look at how it is positioned. It is always normal to have a little bit of water in the bottom filter area (below the silver screen filter).

I have an ASKO D3251 that is not draining. We


You will need to remove the bottom panel of the unit below the door that exposess the motor and the electrical along with water hook up. Now you will nee to manually go through the cylces (or let the machine cycle) to rinse. Once in the rinse cycle you should have heard the selinoid activate to drain the water. This selinoid click and pulls an arm down when in drain mode if you are looking under the unit you will either hear it or see this activate. If not then the selinoid is out, if you hear it activat then you need to look at the back of the motor to see if the motor itself is turning. You should be able to see the fins on the back of the motor turn once it goes into drain cycle. If you do not see the motor fins turning (you have to look through the vent slots located on the back of the motor) you acan take a small slotted head screwdriver and with the power off, you can insert this screwdriver into the vent holes in the back of the motor to spin (or move) the motor fins. If they do not move freely then the motor itself is froze up in that case a new one is needed. If the spin then try your drain cycle again since you may have unfroze the drain motor.

Good luck hope this helped
