Question about Asko 24 in. 1805 Built-in Dishwasher
My Asko is frozen and I can not get the dishwasher to respond to ANY control. I have turned off the circut breaker yet the problem does not resolve itself. Any ideas on what to do? Is there a reset button?
I did the same and after drying the pan and overflow switch it started working again. Unfortunatley only until the next cycle. I noticed water is running out of what appears to be a downpipe in the centre section. The pan immediately filled up and triggered the overflow switch again. The drain pipe is clear so i suspect it is the drain pump that is not working, or the electrical command to the pump. I will have to call a serviceman now!

ASKO dishwasher, all lights flashing and drain pump running continuously.
We have this problem with our ASKO DW a couple times a year. This week the pan was dry so I just took a heavy wooden rolling pin and gave the legs of the machine and front of the belly pan a good thump. ( our machine only has access to belly pan from rear so a pain to pul the machine out). Walla, it worked. I suspect the foam float switch in the belly pan just got stuck.
Not sure why it stuck now, as the pan was dry. Previously it is because we have not run the garbage disposal before running.
Great DW for cleaning, quiet, but so tempermental about this, our Bosch went ten years with no problems until the motor went out.

This is a common problem with the Asko1805. The machine is equipped with overfill protection. Water has leaked through to the bottom pan and has triggered the overflow shutoff float. You must get the water out of the bottom of the dishwasher. Unscrew the kickplate and the metal cover to access the bottom of the machine where the pumps and motors reside. Use a sponge to slop up the water in the pan. Blow dry the bottom. The machine will reset itself as soon as the water is gone.
This problem is often caused by poor drain pump action between cycles. If the pump has completely removed all water from one cycle and the next cycle adds more water then the dishwasher "floods" and triggers the overflow protection. I have found that 9 times out of 10 the problem is with build up or blockage where the drain pump connects to the sink drain. Keep this clean and your problem should disappear. The drain pump could be faulty but stick with the simple stuff first. Occasionally the drain hose may fall off the back of the machine loosing its loop and thus creating poor pumping action.
I hope this helps
