    I have an Asko 1475 SS. All lights are flashing - will not respond to any direction- therefore I have shut off the circuit breaker, but it does not reset, it continues to flash and the machine is trying to drain. However there is not water in the unit. HELP!

    I have a problem with the Asko 1805. The problem was caused
    when the drainage was blocked. When unblocked, it drained the water out
    but now all the lights just blink. It seems to be frozen. Is there any
    way to reset this machine or any other ideas?

    Same problem. Interestingly, the unit now screams like a banshee during the wash and rinse cylce... these two issues arose at the same time.

    My Asko 1805 model won't turn on at all. It's been working fine up until now. I've had it since 1992 and have only had minor repairs.I even checked the circuit breaker. That didn't help. Could it be that something is wrong with the control panel? No repair people in Chicago are willing to come out because they say it's impossible to get parts for Asko dishwashers since they're foreign made. I can't live without my Asko. Please help.

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

Our machine is frozen not responding to panel buttons

You can try resetting your dishwasher.

1. First, unplug the dishwasher power cord or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
2. Then, plug the dishwasher power cord into the wall outlet or turn the breaker back on and wait 30 seconds.
3. After that, press the Pause / Cancel / Stop button twice to clear the display.
4. Finally, start a short cycle, to check operation of the dishwasher, by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the dishwasher starts.

Kitchenaid dishwasher KUDS01DJ Rinse only light is flashing. control panel is frozen with only rinse only light flashing. does not respond to pressing of any buttons. I flipped the breaker switch,...

Ok, Turn breaker off at breaker panel. Just off then on. The rinse only light should be on.....not flashing. Now press the start button first and hold; then press the cancel button. That should cancel all lights. Then press wash button then start. If the light is still flashing after you turn off might have a bigger problem. May need new control panel.

All the lights are flashing on Asko 1805 dishwasher

Hi, You need to absorb the water in the overflow basen of the Asko dishwasher's and then push and hold a button to reset the error code...flashing LED's or turn the power off momentarily. You need to remove the lower kick plate and get to the basin with a wet-dry vacuum or sponge etc. Good luck. Let me know if I can assist you further. Thanks for visiting fixya and if you found this solution helpful please rate it accordingly. Macmarkus :)

Asko 1805 dishwasher detergent door does not despense the detergent during the wash cycle. At the conclusion of the dishwasher cycle the door is still closed. How do you repair?

First make sure that nothing is blocking it.. when you load the make sure your dishwasher cycle is NOT on rince and hold ( water spraying on a plate symbol) as this cycle will not open the despence door..

last you can remove the screws in the door check the vax motor and or check if you are getting power to the despencer ( no power replace control)
power to vax motor replace despencer motor

Hope it helps if Not let me know more about you problem..I can help

Detergent door will not close on Asko model 1805 dishwasher

Here you must change complete detergent box. Or the electronic gives consantly power to trigger. Most likely one of these two.
