Question about Asko 24 in. D3120 Dishwasher
Hi, we have an Asko D3120 dishwasher that had a blocked pipe and the overfill protection was tripped. I've cleared the pipe and the water immediately pumped out of it. Now when I plug it back in the pump is still running and can't be stopped. Pushing the power button on the machine has no impact nor do any of the other buttons. The only way to stop it is to unplug it from the mains. I've run Asko and they tell me it requires a service techinician at a cost of $95 per 15 minutes plus parts. Since I know the problem was a blocked pipe and now it's not blocked I'm hesitant to pay a technician to come and 'reset' the machine. Does anyone know how I can reset it myself or what needs to happen for it to register that the problem is now resolved? Drain function runs continously unless circuit breaker turned off. Indicator for cycle flashes and even if you turn the dishwasher off with power button the drain function contines to rum until power is disconnected at breaker for a few hours. Asko suggested too much soap and had me run a cycle with vinegar. Next load of dishes did the same exact thing.
Remove the backpanel of the machine, and look if there is water at the bottom of the machine. If so, use a towel or so to dry up the water. This should solve the prob.

My 3120 was not 'installed' (running standalone in laundry during renovations). Angling the unit forward to 30-40 degrees caused the water to be expelled from under the unit and instantly stopped the pump - cycles working again no problems.

The tipping method worked for Me. Just unscrewed it (fixing screws behimd the black caps insideat the top front edge) and slid it out and tipped it foward about 20 degrees and out came the water and I had a happy wife again.

SOURCE: ASKO Overfill protection tripped
I can vouch for the overfill protection solution. I have a Asko 1385, dried the overfill pan, and Whala!! worked just fine. Otherwise the pump just kept running and wouldn't shut off. Thanks for the tip!!!
