Re: Asko 1875 Dishwasher won't switch on

Check the ON/OFF switch in the panel. Or the PCB.

I have an asko d3251 dishwasher that won't stop running. The device in the drain that spins won't stop. I had to shut the power off to the unit.

Our unit had leaking connection on outlet side of fill solenoid valve. Any leak will cause water to accumulate in base pan. there is a float switch in base pan as a safety mechanism when water is in pan it causes a styrofoam float to rise and make contact with switch. This tells machine there is a leak creates error code to run pump continuously until water is removed from base. Disconnet electric from unit first. you must pull dishwasher out to get at back panel. Remove lower back panel to get access to mechanicals of unit. Once you remove panel you should see water in pan. If you see water that is most likely same issue we had. soak up excess water or tilt unit to drain water out of pan. once water is gone unit should start normally. If you look underneath while unit starts up - don't touch anything while unit is connected to electricity! You should notice where water is coming from. Our unit leaked at hose connection from outlet side of solenoid fill valve. connector is a plastic cam-lock fitting with a flow sensor integrated into it. there is an o-ring between the two parts. it comes apart with a very small amount of counter-clockwise motion. perhaps only five or ten degrees of indexing and it falls right off. it is a very flimsy connection for the main water line. the o-ring on our unit Was slightly deformed and not seated correctly. could have been from original installers 4 years earlier! Asko needs to re-design this part. I replaced o-ring and unit is working again however I do not trust that this fitting will hold up over time. Very poor design in my opinion. Other design flaw I noticed while looking at mechanicals is circulating pump isolation mount is not in correct location for pump motor. rubber mount is stressed to the point of almost tearing off! No way for me to correct this since location of mount does not match position of motor. We will not replace this unit with another ASKO when it goes.

Dishwasher Drains, Fills but won't wash

It sound like a water switch level problem. I am not familiar with your specific dishwasher, but there are 2 types of level switches. 1)A diaphragm device with a small clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. 2)Floating switch that located inside the dishwasher's bottom and operate a switch. In case there is a floating switch in your dishwasher - check for its smooth movment and check as well the switch by a multi-meter (an on/off switch). Defective switch should be replaced. If level switch in your dishwasher, is a diaphragm device - Open the rear panel, find the device and clear first any obstruction in the tube.In case it doesn't help, disconnect the wires from the unit (you should disconnect first machine's power cable !!!!!) and measure with a multi-meter on its tugs for continuity and disconnection while you are inhale and blow to its tube. In case it will not react, you should replace it. Good luck !!

Asko D1796 has no power. When the main power switch is activated, there is now power being sent to the control system buttons or their LEDs. I checked the outlet and there is AC power present in the...

It is possible that the main controller unit is fault as it has failed to work if there is power to the unit. If not the main power line must be checked from the switch as a continuity test will confirm if there is any break or fault in the switch.
If not the power section of the main controller unit is faulty and in most cases this must be replaced as a full board.

Asko 1875 dishwasher, Spray arms don't seem to

It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors or feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/PUMP MOTOR/DRAIN to work when it is commanded .If this does not happen then the voltage at these points must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage/drive from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If the water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor. The water pressure must be good and the spraying must be seen to be good. If there is low pumping or pressure then the spray arms will not turn around to inject with pressure. If so the pump must be checked for clogging.

Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water.

Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.

Asko d3120 flashing coffee cup

I had to slide the dishwasher forward (undercounter installation)and tip it forward as far as possible. Water leaks onto floor, but then the internal controller seems to reset and the ASKO now works normally again. What kind of idiot would design a control module that does not incorporate a power-off interlock? FAIL FAIL FAIL - Bad, ASKO, Bad. Go to your room.

Asko 1875 - will not stop

OK, just had the same problem wit my dishwasher, ASKO 1875, ,,,,,, Firstly, open the door and remove the tilt screws that secure it from tilting, top left and right corners at the front , pull the dishwasher out from under the bench enough so you can get to the back of the unit. Take care with the power cord [ should be turned off at the wall] . At the fear there is a panel at the bottom held on with 4 selftapping screws, remove these and ease panel away from the machine enough so you can see inside. Now you are likely to see alot of water sitting in the bottom tray, [ l did on mine } This exess water activates a small float under the pump which in my case caused the problem. Sponge the exess water out into a bucket, there will be quite a lot. Once dry try turning your dishwasher back on and hey presto the lights on the controll panel should be back to normal. Turn power off again, replace bottom panel to the back of the machine. Reinstall back under the bench, not forgetting to replace the tilt screws and all should work well....... Hope this helps. If still a problem you may have to dig into your wallet and call a serviceman. P.S. If you dont want to remove the back panel and sponge the water out, you can just tilt the dishwasher over to drain the water but this will cause abit of a mess {water } on the floor, but it is alot faster. Good luck.

Asko D1796F1 builtin...lights are on but no one is home

Our Asko D1796 dishwasher has the lights on the panel working as usual but you can't select a cycle and it won't turn on. We unplugged the pipe. If we turn it off and wait for 12+ hours we have gotten it to work twice.

more than likely the door catch switch or the on off button, check these 2 first

Stopped working altogether

Check the door switch, it may have gone bad or maybe isnt connecting with the catch, making it look dead. They wont do anything when the door is open, as you know. Also remove the lower panels to get to the inside of the dishwasher. Check for power where the cord is plugged into the machine. If you have power, unplug it and look at the terminals to the heaater element. They are on the right side, facing down out of the dishwasher tub. Just look inside the dishwasher to see where the heater goes through, then look in the same place underneath, Check the condition of these connections. The timer gets power through the heater element (strange but true) so if the heater is bad or these connections have heated and melted, it will cause a dead dishwasher. if tis just the connectio, pu t a new terminal on it and you should be good to go. Hope this helps
