Asko D3100 - Over filling

Good site you have,
I have had 2 call outs for this overfill problem. First one on warranty. The tech changed the program from a metered fil to a timed fill by changing program.

Next time was an o ring blown out in the water metering plastic housing on the back of the inlet solenoid. I fixed this myself with some copper wire twitched up to stop the housing flexing apart which allowed the o ring topop out. this problem was probably caused by me hooking it up to hot water and the cheap + nasty plastic housing flexing when hot.

Ok now I have redone the kitchen and hooked the unit to the cold water. now It is over filling again probably due to the higher pressure. (plumber fitted a pressure regulator but had to take out - fouled with filter strainer on hose connection).

The last tech showed me how to alter the program from a metered fill to a timed fill and i think also the actual fill time. Of course i thought no prob I will remember the sequence - pushing and holding the buttons etc but i have forgotten. Could you please help me with the sequence to reduce the fill time also to revert back to the metered fill if I have to.

Your help would be much appreciated. Cost me $120.00 for 2 minutes work last time.

Re: Asko D3100 - Over filling

You press and hold the programme button and start button then press the power button wait until the light come on then release the buttons .press programme button until the pots wash comes on (time fill) pots wash not on is sensor fill.then you press the start button to lock in your choice.You will probably still have to replace the valve complete as it will cause an overfill problem

Does anyone know where to buy replacement cutlery basket for Asko D3100?

They are sold by dimensions and you can find them here in the UK:


Actual part number 8801239-77

another AU site part listed more than 50% down the page using the PN above:

Sure does seem a bit pricey on the AU sites....

To me as a 40 year tech a dishwasher cutlery basket is a cutlery basket. Find one that will fit the dimesions of your dishrack alloted cutlery basket space and buy it. The first link is a good start.

All the lights stay on after a cycle completion even after I siphoned all the remaining water in the filter sump.(After opening and closing the door. ASKO model 1585)

Hello, the reason for the light flash error is the unit either didn't drain properly, overfilled somehow or has a leak which is filling the "overfill basin" ( it's designed to, that way it doesn't get to your theory ). Check your drain hose by removing it where it connect's to your home plumbing via under sink pipe or food diposer/garberator. You'll also need to remove the lower access panel, or kick plate as it is sometimes referred to, and absorb the water in the basin before it will run a cycle...or wait a few days for enough water to evaporate from the basin ( shut off the power/breaker before doing so ) then look for evidence of a leak. Check at the fill valve, (to the left) the drain pump, (slightly to the left-center) as well as the circulation pump & hoses, ( it is much more difficult to see...directly behind the big gray main sump assembly). That should get you moving forward. The Asko can be a challenge to work on if you've never worked on one. That is why I usually suggest calling a pro, preferably an authorized Asko servicer. It may save many unessasary part's being changed as I see too often with these. Hope that help's, good luck. macmarkus :)

ASKO 1385 not filling after overfill protection was turned on

If when turned on the dishwasher sounds like it is running the drain pump, and does this in any cycle setting, it is possible that the drain pan below the unit has filled with water. Check this post for more details.

Pump continuing to run -Asko D3100

Micro switch was actually faulty,moisture had entered the switch and caused internal tracking and shorting out the micro switch ,making the pump run continually as it thought it was still in flood mode.
Flood appears to have been caused by a pin hole in the water fill hose in the base of the dishwasher,causing water to spray on the micro switch and eventually biuld up in the base of the machine.

Remove the lower panel at the back of the machine. If there is water on the bottom pan, wipe it up with a towel or so, and the machine schould be like new again ;-)

Good luck

Asko D1796 will not start properly

It sounds as if you may have A bad control board. It could be causing the heater element to come on when its not supposed to (usually a stuck relay) and not filling the machine with water. you could also have a bad control board AND a bad fill valve, as a stuck relay for the heater shouldn't affect the fill valve circuit. The bad news is that these asko control boards are $350 to $450 for just the part, the good news is that the control board is under a 5 year warranty (for only the part, not the labor to change it) as are the pump motors and any timers. Also, if you are just out of warranty, find your date of installation, as asko warranties start when you install it, not when you buy it (if you moved into the house and it was there when you moved in, and you are the first owner, submit a date of occupancy and that's when your warranty started)

Dishwasher overfilling

I have been working on ASKO for several years and have never seen one fill and drain at the same time. Usually if it drains and cannot be stopped, it is because there is water in the lower tray that needs to be removed or left to evaporate, and then it needs to be figured out why the water was there in the first place. If you could post back with more info (does it fill, sit for a while, then drain, or is it doing both at once) I would be glad to help. Good Luck!
