Asko w6221 washer won't start

I have an Asko W6221 washer that I purchased in 2002. Recently, it stopped working (only the power light comes on). After doing a little research, I thought the issue was the door switch. After I ordered a new one and replaced it (what an ordeal that was when you don't have a diagram to work from!), I was able to start the machine and begin a run. However, it never finshed the run (it stopped when it was supposed to drain) and I can't get it to do anything anymore (not even a manual rise, spin or drain). Do you think I have an issue with the main board? Asko includes a high-level block diagram of the machine inside, but it doesn't provide enough detail to troubleshoot this issue. Do I take another gamble and replace the board (it costs $350)?

First I would check you drain pump ... make sure it is clear and clean.. next if you have a meter be sure it is getting power and that it is not shorted ...if it is not getting power then I would check the wires first then check your control.

Hope it helps if Not let me know more about you problem..I can help

Ciruit board asko w6221 washer


Not normally. Most manufacturers supply boards complete and ready to go in to replace a dud. Unless you know an electronics whiz who can identify what component(s) have failed, you are probably better off and reliability wise, to get a replacement board.

This seems to be a fault with the controller unit as there is no program cycle execution . So remore the power plug and let the processor reset, now try with different programs and if the cycle does not move it is possible that the controller unit is faulty.

I have an Asko front load washer W6221. I have


I had identical problem. I diagnosed it to be the motor brushes on the front of the motor. They have an off switch in them when they get worn out. Easy to check and replace. Remove front lower panel (two torx 20 screws). Brushes are visible and are held with two screws each. One on each side of motor. Remove two screws on each brush and unattach wire. Two new motor brushes were around $75. Literally tooke 30 minutes to replace. Hope this is your issue!
