Question about Asko Dishwashers
It seems there may be a blockage in the input hose or the tap is partially tuened off. If this is a built in where no one camn inadvertantly turn it the tap off it might still be corroded with lime or iron from the quality of the water. If there is no filter on the line particles can buld up in the inlet. Pre entry filters inline can also corrode so remove and clean if neccessary
Remove hoses and ensure they are not blocked. Check tap inlet has sufficient presssure when hose is removed.
Make sure there is not a broken inlet pipe outside before it enters the cavity to the machine.
If you find lime or iron corrosion in the inlet you van be sure it is inside the machine as well There are disolving products you can use the help clear it out .
Fit the hose back to base of machine. Fill hose with CLC or whatever is available from h.ware store to remove calcium lime and Iron buildup and connect to water tap again. Leave for a few hours to let it commence its work. ( tap off) The turn tap on to pressureise the line and leave for a further hour . Then run it throuh a cycle and check the machine functiomns properly.CLC will not harm the mechanism of the machine
If none of this is the case then you have faulty seals and the nachine will need repair/replacement.

Check to make sure that the jet holes in all the arms are not clogged. You can use a toothpick to unclog them. This is usually the reason dishes won't get washed. The other reason is a lack of water pressure either due to household pressure, or a valve in the washer or house is not fully opening.

I guess it is most likely the circulation pump. On this pump there is a
condensator mounted. This will help the pump to get started. If this is broken,
it wont circulate the water up to the sprayers.
- The condensator looks like a cylinder shaped about 2 inch long with two connecters white in color. its mounted on the pump.its not too expencive. im not sure what the price is. i just know price in norway, sence this is where im from. you can acsess this from behind the machine by removing a cover on the lower bottom. you can dismount the condensator and have it measured, just to be on the safe side.
- it can also be malfunction on the electricboard behind push buttons. you can check for blown comp on the board, and destroyed circuits.

First of all please check the Water temperature by using a thermometer inside the dishwasher to measure the water temp. It should be as close to 125 degree F to 140 degree F as possible. Now try using the temperature boost feature if your dishwasher is equipped with this cycle feature and check if this will help your wash ability issues.
Now check the Powder soap by making sure that you store your soap in a dry environment and it is not stale and clumping together. Possibly try a different detergent like a liquid or gel. Also, make sure the dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is not overloaded.
To check the proper filling dishwasher will fill with water up to and around the heating element. If water is more below the heating element, you may have low water pressure or a problem with the fill valve. Try & listen if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.
For low water pressure, try to clean the screen at the entrance of the fill valve, sometimes the fill valve can fail and not allow the proper water into the dishwasher and may need to be replaced. And, check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks
Low water fills are a very common trouble maker with today's dishwasher.
Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.
