Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

Dishwasher problem Our Asko 1353 dishwasher stops halfway through its's wash cycle. I suspected the thermostat, as it seemed loose in it's holder and not tight against the tub. After I tightened the holder the problem is still the same. Also, the on/off switch (pressure switch?) does not stay in the on position and when I looked it over I found one of the crimp on terminals had melted. Short circuit? Too much resistance from bad thermostat? How do I check the thermostat before I order a new one? Thanks, RG

I think your switch may just be bad,but to check the t-stat remove both wires and use a multimeter,set the meter to ohms and connect the two leads to the terminals on the t-stat.with the t-stat to off you should read an (ol) open condition,when you turn the dial on the t-stat you should get a reading of continuity.

Is my asko d1776 repairable. It's currently not going into wash mode. The Blade are not turning and washing.


The motor is not getting switched on at the proper time. The timer / cycle selector is the problem and is easily repairable.

On my model 1475, the washer arm doesn't seem to be working and the wash cycle isn't working. It still fills, drains, and goes to the heat cycle. . .but we don't think it is doing the actual washing. ...


Hello, Welcome to FixYa. Based on your description and provided the dishwasher is indeed 1) an Asko 1475 and 2) filling with water, draining, heating, but not circulating, It sounds like a busted wash impeller within the main motor/circulation pump, unfortunately. First though, do you hear a quiet sound of a motor starting once the unit has completed filling with water ? ( it will be super quiet if the wash impeller is broke as I suspect it may be...almost like a fountain, since the Asko are very quiet under normal conditions. You will have to either get right down with your ear to the bottom or run it with the door open by activating the door switch with a screw-driver and look for visual/audible clues ) If so that is a tell tale of no wash action yet the motor runs, hence broken impeller. If you don't hear anything it may be a wire come off the main motor/circulation pump...but not likely. This unfortunately is common with Asko built dishwasher`s and it is a case of being a victim of their own design. What happens typically is the ball-bearings from the upper rack holders ( which are plastic, hence fatigues due to heat and fall apart ) come out making their way into the sump, hence breaking the wash impeller from the motor. Let me know what you find and I'll try and help you move forward from there. If you need direction to remove the circulation motor and pump I can do that, but it is a pretty involved repair and requires pulling the unit from the cabinet...you may opt to call in a pro. I'll watch for your reply. Regards, Macmarkus :)

ASKO 1605


Hi Guys
My dishwasher this morning has desided to not work correctly.
Its a ASKO 1302 about 20 years old. It has been a very good machine.
Over the last couple of weeks during the washing cycle, the dishwasher has been making a loader noise than usual.
1. Today, the dishwasher timer, travels all the way through its cycle, but very little washing take place.
2. Soap power is still there, plates not clean!!!!
3. Water is hot
4. At the end of the cycle, there is no water in the dishwasher.
5. I'm thinking the problem could be the pump needs replacing.
What do you think?
Greg
