Question about Asko W6021 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Asko 10505 not agitating or spinning

I followed previous on-line advice to to other people with similar problems, and I have replaced the brushes and a blown capacitor- but still not getting any joy from the motor. After the machine fills with water, at the point where the drum should start agitating, the machine progressively draws more power (up to about 50A) for a couple of seconds. This puts tension on the belt, like it's trying to turn the drum, but it doesn't start the motor. Then it stops. I can spin the drum and the motor quite easily by hand- it doesn't feel seized. Before this problem occured, I had probably overloaded the machine with too much weight- not sure if this caused the problem, or if it had no bearing on what has happened.
I am running the machine off a photovoltaic array and a top quality sine-wave inverter with plenty of capacity: before this fault the machine was running fine off the inverter.

Not a solution, I have had the same problem due to family members overloading the machine, in fact I have it now which is why I am on here. Previously I fixed it by cleaning the deposit left on the rotor caused by the brushes. It worked before but not this time maybe the brushes are now too worn. This is my second set of brushes I replaced a set after about 10 years of use. From memory there is not a huge difference between a completely new motor and a set of brushes so I may go that way now as the machins is around 15 years old

Asko 10505 Washer will drain but will not spin. Initially that was the problem, but then in trying it out again the washer will fill with water, will drain but will not even wash now. Do you think it is...


You don't mention if the drum spins if you choose the spin program, if it doesn't it could be the brushes on the motor. This would be a cheaper option to try first rather than a board. sometimes you can clean the com or tap the brush carriers gently and get the motor to spin on an empty or small load.

If you're confident, with the power offer and machine isolated you can check the resistance across both the brushes and slowly rotate the motor as a test.
hope this helps

The washing machine doesn't open if I use detergent


read the side of the detergent box it normally says how much, and your washer is probably not opening because it has lid lock to open it you need to pause the cycle and wait a few minutes and it will release the lock also if the washeer is spinning or agitating the lid will automatically lock to open do as described above

Asko 10505 will not spin the belt is not broken, tub fills and drains


Your washer unit is needing a new timer and replacement is needed if the part is available.
This will require some electrical experience to replace the timer unit or go to your local Sears repair and they will come out and repair your unit for a fee.

Asko 10505 washer will not spin


Hi, 2 things to check for. Obstruction in the drain pump or faulty drain pump, brushes in the motor worn out. The easiest way to determine the pump issue is answer this question. Does it drain ? Next, turn the timer to the drain/spin cycle, obviously it should drain & spin and advance to "off". The next thing with these 10505 asko is to see if the drum rotates in both directions in the wash/agitate portion of the cycle. You can just select the short wash for this (I forget if it's #4 or #5) If not, it's worn brushes. However, you'll have to make sure the armature isn't damaged before simply installimg new brushes. We can cross that bridge when we get there. Let me know. Hope that helps, though those are just the most common problems there could be others. Good Luck

Need information about an old ASKO 10604 washing machine


Hi there, we have a 10505 machine and the controls must me pretty much the same. The green E is "Economy" button - increases main wash length by 22 minutes so you can use cooler water. The two circles with diagonal may be a spiral with diagonal if you look real close - this is "No spin" button - no spin in any cycle. The 800 button - when pressed reduces spins speed to 800 rpm from 1000 rpm. Not sure about cold clothes though. Do you have the hot water connected? Have you got a temperature dial? If so, make sure you dial up the required temp. Good luck!
Cheers, Brian.

Asko 620 not spinning and not agitating


Clean armature and replace brushes. When you remove the brushes the shut a small pin like device maybe protruding from the brush tip. this is a sure clue.

Asko W620 washing machine not spinning


Sounds like the motor brushes need to be cleaned or replaced. Take the back off the washer, remove the motor and gently scrape the excess carbon or debris off the brushes with a pocket knife. I did this and it ran well for about 50 loads before building back up. I am ordering new brushes now because when I checked the brushes last week they were obviously worn more than 4 weeks ago.
