Question about Asko D1716 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Our Asko D1716 dishwasher functions to fill and empty but the pump which causes the sprayers to rotate and distribute the water does not function. The local appliance repairman diagnosed the problem as a bad pump (he called it a motor). Since the pump is a $400 part plus labor, is it possible that the problem is something else like a bad motor capacitor or relay? When the cycle calls for the pump to come on, there is no sound except for a very soft hum.

When the cycle has finished and I open the door the washing tablet is sitting in the tablet flap that is open


Hello Vanessa,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description and provided the dishwasher is indeed 1) an Asko D1716 and 2) filling with water, draining, heating, but not dissolving the detergent, it often is a busted wash impeller within the main motor/circulation pump.


Unfortunately the impeller itself is not serviceable, the entire motor/pump must be replaced if indeed it is broke.

Here's something you can try first though, this will indicate if the unit is circulating the water properly. Try placing both spray arms at 12 o'clock position and placing a cup upright in the top rack. If the arms move and the cup fills, you've got circulation...if neither, you don't.

Also be sure the unit is actually filling with water, this image below indicates the normal water level to look for....

Let me know what you find and I'll try and help you move forward from there. If you need direction to remove the circulation motor and pump I can do that, but it is a pretty involved repair and requires pulling the unit from the cabinet. Check those other possibilities first and tell me what you find.

I'll watch for your reply.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

It doesn't sound like the dishwasher jet arms are spraying water and the dishsoap was still on door at end of cycle.


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.


Based on your description and provided the dishwasher is indeed 1) an Asko D1716 and 2) filling with water, draining, heating, but not circulating, It sounds like a busted wash impeller within the main motor/circulation pump, unfortunately.

First though, do you hear a quiet sound of a motor starting once the unit has completed filling with water ? And be sure the unit is actually filling with water, this image below indicates the normal water level to look for....


macmarkus_284.jpg


The pump obviously it will be super quiet if the wash impeller is broke as I suspect it may be...almost like a fountain, since the Asko are very quiet under normal conditions. You will have to either get right down with your ear to the bottom or run it with the door open by activating the door switch with a screw-driver and look for visual/audible clues.

If so that is a tell tale of no wash action yet the motor runs, hence broken impeller. If you don't hear anything it may be a wire come off the main motor/circulation pump...but not likely.

This unfortunately is common with Asko built dishwasher`s and it is a case of being a victim of their own design.

What happens typically is the ball-bearings from the upper rack holders ( which are plastic, hence fatigues due to heat and fall apart ) come out making their way into the sump, hence breaking the wash impeller from the motor.

Let me know what you find and I'll try and help you move forward from there. If you need direction to remove the circulation motor and pump I can do that, but it is a pretty involved repair and requires pulling the unit from the cabinet...you may opt to call in a pro.

I'll watch for your reply.

Asko1585 sprayer arm not working


Most likely the circulation pump. On this pump there is mounted a condensator. This will help the pump to get started. If this is broken, it wont circulate the water up to the sprayers.

Water won't spray


Sounds like whatever caused the clogged drain may also have clogged the sprayer arm.  If it is clogged it will not spin.  Remove the arm and if it is clogged see if you can clean it out.

Asko D1716 won't start


Ensure the water is turned on and the door is fully closed, make sure delay start is not set.....

if DW still won't start, I would begin by checking the door switch.

Dishwasher flooding


When you say that you tried other solutions.. it's hard to know which you've tried and which you haven't so I will suggest some basics first.. ( if you've tried them, then disregard)...
Have you checked or addressed the following:
  1. Cleaned the drain filter
  2. Checked the drain hose for crimps or restrictions
  3. Sure the drain system ( such as your feed thru the garbage disposal isn't clogged or restricting flow)
  4. Checked your water pump for an obstruction or you can determinbe if it is actually pumping
  5. The feed and returm hose ..to anf from the pump are not clogged, pinched or restricting flow.
These are the basics that you should have examined or confirmed aren't causing the problems you are seeing. One other as well.. are you sure your water inlet valve is completely shutting water from leaking in and over-filling the system? Check these items and you should be able to diagnose where the problem is.. Hope this helps you,

Asko D1716 dishwasher problem


I also have an Asko D1716 dishwasher. The water stopped flowing. I replaced the water inlet valve and I have another problem, but the replacement of the fill valve is now letting in water. You can call Asko at 1-800-898-1879 to order the parts. If you order from Asko, I'm told you have some warranty on the parts. Anyway, the screws take a star drive and there is a front plate and back plate you will need to remove. There are approx. 4 screws on the front and 4 screws on the back. Just remember to unplug it before starting any work. The fill valve is in front of the machine. There are 2 screws holding it in place from the front. You will need to remove it out the back though to replace it since the fill tube to the tub is short and it wont allow you to pull it out the front. The repair is really easy once you get started.

Hope this helps,
