Question about Asko Dishwashers

1 Answer

Ok, after a year, I've figured out the problem. I changed a bunch of parts, but never until now figured out that what it is doing is, water is running out the hole behind the door, where the overflow dripguard sits, if the front three panels are on. when those panels are on, water, just before position 6, pours down that plastic dripguard piece, into the big tray. eventually the tray overflows. when you take off the panels, then water just pours onto the floor. if you open the DW, the basin is totally full- overlyfull, and water then pours out around the door. It appears that the water level is too high during cycle 6, causing the water problem. can the water level be adjusted?

    it's a d1706 model. thanks for the tips. I'm guessing it is not the drainhose. it drains really quickly and completely, and I've taken that off and back on already. It is probably the float, and I'll check the level - I'd guess it's that!

It could be as simple as the float switch inside the wash tub. Usually they are located just inside the bottom front edge of the dishwasher. Some of these are loose and others are enclosed inside another cover.

You may have to remove a cover to get at the float. Basically, the float is designed to float up when enough water has flowed into the dishwasher. Sometimes thou, gunk can get built up inside the bottom of the float and cause it be heavier than it should be, which causes the float (water level) switch to not shut off the water until too much water has been drawn into the dishwasher.

If a good cleaning of the float doesn't solve the problem, you can get at the float switch by removing the front lower access panel and reposition the switch to cause the water to shut off sooner.

Another problem could be that the dishwasher isn't level and the front is set lower than the rear and that is causing erratic operation of the float and causing the water to leak out the front. Check to make sure the dishwasher is properly level front to back and side to side.

Lastly, check the drain hose to be certain that is doesn't have any obstructions as any partial blockage could be preventing a complete pump out of the water in the tub, since many discharge cycles (pump out) are timer based and don't actually know if all the water has been pumped out before the next cycle starts adding in fresh water, etc.

Check the entire drain hose from the dishwasher to the air break (if you have one at the sink top) to the drain tap either on a disposal (could have partial blockage inside the drain port on the disposal) or the drain fitting that ties into the sink drain, etc. Check everything to make sure it isn't clogged or blocked anywhere along the drain path.

Sometimes it's the simple things that cause appliances to not function properly. Without you model number, I couldn't pull up the drawing to check what type of water level float your unit has, etc., so I provided you with generic solutions to try out.

Hope this helps, best regards!

I don't see a service manual posted on internet.
Without a service manual showing ohm-readings for testing different parts, you are left guessing which part is problem.
Most water heater manuals today recommend yearly service to catch up on most causes for failure including air in fuel line, dirty or corroded burner parts, defective sensor, loose connection, etc.

you may have something stuck in your drain pump. could also be a problem with your drain line, make sure drain hose is not kinked and is not 96" above the floor. if our drain line is ok. then remove bottom panel of washing machine. the drain pump will now be visible. turn the tab on the drain pump, make sure you have some towels, because water will be coming out, stick your hand inside and see if there is anything stuck far as the sud error code, the drain pump is designed to remove just water and not suds. If you are not using he (high efficiency) detergent and following instructions for the desired amount. you will get that code. Also this machine should activate a sud cycle to remove excessive suds

Is it ok if i used Prestone 50/50 Prediluted Antifreeze/coolant for my 2001 chevy blazer other than dez cool? I did not mix the two i ve been using the Prestone since i had my blazer for about a year.

It's OK to use Prestone 50/50 Prediluted Antifreeze/coolant. But, it needs to be DEX COOL. There is a reason for it. The seals and the water pump in the cooling system are made to run with the DEX COOL. Anything like a non-compatible coolant will cause problems down the road. I wouldn't risk it. They do make 50/50 DEX COOL.

Not enough information. You really need to have it diagnosed to find out if its an engine issue or component. You may have a couple different problems but only a shop can figure it out. Here we are all just guessing.

Put a spin on it

vzone, you don't have a belt on this model. After the agitation, the washer should go into a nuetral drain for about 90 seconds getting rid of most of the water before spinning. See if yours is doing this. If it doesn't, the gearcase lost it's nuetral drain. The gearcase has a five year warranty on it, part only. If it's ok, the next thing I would do is check the drain pump itself, see if it has a bunch of junk wrapped up in the impeller restricting the flow. The pump comes off easy. Two clips and two clamps. Check the photo, back.
