Question about Asko D1716 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

My d1716 continues to run, but does not move forward in the cycle. I can even open the door and it continues running. If I didn't unplug it, the motor would likely burn out. Do I need a new dial? Thanks.

Hi

I would suggest that your flood switch has been activated. There is a float on the bottom plate or base plate of the machine. If there is a water leak, the float rises and triggers the flood switch.

Once the switch has been activated, the machine will go on a continous pump.

Disconnect the power and the hoses from the machine. Pull the machine out and lay it on its back.

If there has been a leak, you will notice water pouring out the back.

See if you can open the bottom plate, and reset the floater and flood switch. Sometimes you can access this by openning the front kick plate or front bottom plate.

Try the machine again. Leave the front bottom plate out and look into the bottom as the machine is working. If you have a water leak, this will happen again and you may be able to notice where the leak is from.

Be carful not to touch the live wiring while you are monitoring the machine.

Good luck
Ash

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.

Buzzing in upper left hand corner of door on Asko D1776. When door is fully open it stops but when door is up it continues and you can feel warmth in the uopper left hand corner.


Hi,

I think what you are describing is the "turbo fan" assembly. This device is used to remove the condensation to insure dishes are dry at the end of a cycle. It actually vent`s out the bottom left side via a plastic housing but the vent motor assembly is located inside the door at the upper left corner.

If it ( the fan) continues to run or "hums" because it`s trying to run, even when the dishwasher is idle or no program has been selected, it is likely a problem within` the control board unfortunately. This is usually caused by the vent assembly getting clogged up so it cannot open correctly and the "wax motor" ( the small device which open`s and closes the vent ) burns up and short`s out the control board.
If you`re capable, you can visually inspect the control and look for burnt up path ways on the printed circuit side ( green side with lot`s of solder joints ).
If so you`ll need to replace the control as well as the fan assembly, or clean the assembly really well as most asko control`s come with a new "wax motor"...or used to where I live. Unfortunately those control`s retail for about $400 and up, and most now are of the "rebuilt/refurbished" kind. The part number should be ( if the model number is correct ) # 8801201.

Hope this help`s move you forward. Let me know either way and I`ll try to assist you further.

Thank`s for visiting "fixya" today for your repair solution`s and good luck moving forward.

My Dacor DMT2420 fan, light and turtable motor run continuously when the door is open. I have unplugged the unit to reset it with no help, another on-line forum expert suggested checking the door switches...


If the cooling fan, light and turntable run continuously when the door is open, but not when it is closed, your secondary interlock (bottom door switch) is shorted (always on).

Even if it's shorted, the actuator button (usually red) will still move up and down when you open and close the door.

It will need a new door switch.

See the service manual here. See our file on door switches here.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Tappan electric range door locked


Check the door lock switch/solenoids. You'll have to unplug the range/stove. Remove the solenoid and check to see if it has continuity or if the solenoids are stuck.
You also might have luck resetting the clean cycle. Even though the lock is engaged, try to open the oven door a little. Start the clean cycle, then cancel it.
