Asko front-load washing machine

The machine won't wash - comes up with "Washer motor fault
Can we fix it or does it need a repair person. It the person recommends a new motor - would it be new or reconditioned?

    Our Asko Front Washer has today started to do exactly the same thing. I hope not a new motor cos I don't have the money!!

    "Washer motor fault" after running for a short period. Resetting it by stop/starting again doesn't help. Unplug for 20 minutes or longer and can start again, but ends up with the fault. A strange whining noise is coming from the washer now as well. I was told $295 for a new motor, plus $35 to install, plus tax, on top of the $96 "Service fee" to tell me what's wrong.

    Do I take out the motor and bring it to be repaired instead?

It Can be brushes or motor ir the wear is uneven if the machine has a lwr board next to the motor ( chopper board) it could also need replacing with the motor

I'm pretty sure that the problem is the coalbrushes in the motor. The coalbrushes makes connection between the communtator and the stator in the motor. Pretty easy job for a technician. Not very expencive either.

Asko 20004 washes but won't spin

This is a motor fault issue. As I don't know your ability in repairing or what tools you possess. Simple solution: other then have a repairman do this, the motor has something causing a fault. The vast majority of times in an asko because the motors spin at high speeds then most others is that the brushes wear out. So they most likely need a repair. Turn off machine, remove motor replace brushes. There other possibilities such as electrical problems but I reckon brushes are the problem, could cost $60 for the pair and takes maybe an hour or two depending the skill of the person attempting. This is not complex just dirty I do not endorse repairing any appliance without proper experience in repairing appliances. This is only informative.

Wash motor fault

If so you an check if the motor is working separately out of the circuit. If so there is fault on the control drive circuit and so the output to the motor drive could be a suspect.

F6 on an asko washer means a fault was detected with the motor. What this means 99% of the time is the brushes in the motor are worn. As long as the armature isn't damaged, (visual inspection while turning motor shaft should identify damage) you'll be fine replacing the brushes.

part # 764414, 2 required, about $40US each (better than $400US plus for a motor).

hope that helps

good luck
