Question about Asko 24 in. D3250 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

ASKO 1475 Does not not pump out and drain at end of cycle.

Machine lightly used two or three times a week for 8 years with no problems. Recently it started to not-drain upon completion of cycle leaving water up to normal fill level which I believe to be the gray plastic flange on bottom of lower wash arm. Drain hose removed and back flushed with water and compressed air so no blockage is present. Hose is routed up in a loop at edge of sink base to prevent siphon situation. Fittings at drain were all removed and checked for blockage so that is not the issue. Pump action observed at outlet (into garbage disposal) and strong steady stream is observed so pump seems to be working properly. Help please.

    I'm having the exact same problem with my Asko 1585 Dishwasher.

    GE dishwasher will drain if hose is paced at floor level into a pan; however, once it is hooked up to the drain or garbage disposal it will not drain.

Asko WCAM1812 makes noise when draining

I recently had this same problem. There is a spinning wheel inside the pump that has likely detached from the motor. Upon removing the back of the unit, you will see a water pump on the bottom left of the unit. There are three screws attaching the pump to the rest of the assembly, remove the screws and detach the motor, out should pop out a red spinning wheel. I Gorilla glued mine back on, and it sounds better than before the grinding noise.

Asko washing machine won't drain.

Further on to this F3 problem I had the issue on model W6461. There is a short cut to the fix, instead of taking off the grey pipe from the drain pump (the hose clips are pre crimped in the factory so as stated above are difficult to remove) try this.
Stages as follows:
1) Open drain pump door (bottom left of machine).
2) Remove black pipe and drain residual water.
3) Unscrew coin trap and remove, use a container to hold the water.
4) Leave the container underneath and make sure you have some towels ready (I didn't at the time)
5) Where the washing machine drain hose connects to the outlet or U bend connector remove this and expose the end.
6) Blow into the drain hose as hard as possible......hopefully the blockage will clear through back the coin trap.

A large lump of sludge, three of my 5 year olds small counter coins and about a litre of water.

Just ran the machine now and fault cleared.

Good luck

Asko 1475 dishwasher - won't wash. Circulation pump?

Check your drain. It is dual purpose. It not only drains but, it also recirculates the water doring the cycles.

ASKO D3251 flashing error message; drain gurgling, power off

You most likely have a leaking bottom spray arm. The water is in the pan under your unit. It requires dealer service. If you are still in your 3-year warranty, good; otherwise be prepared to put out hundreds of dollars. I'm going though this now for a second time on my $1600 D3251. Asko did grant a one-time extension on my warranty since it expired a month ago. In 6 months when it breaks again, I'll buy a Bosch. I also had this same problem on a previous Asko. I can't get more than 3 years out of these units, so this is my last Asko. When it breaks again, I'll go with Bosch. Good Luck.

ASKO 1605

Hi Guys
My dishwasher this morning has desided to not work correctly.
Its a ASKO 1302 about 20 years old. It has been a very good machine.
Over the last couple of weeks during the washing cycle, the dishwasher has been making a loader noise than usual.
1. Today, the dishwasher timer, travels all the way through its cycle, but very little washing take place.
2. Soap power is still there, plates not clean!!!!
3. Water is hot
4. At the end of the cycle, there is no water in the dishwasher.
5. I'm thinking the problem could be the pump needs replacing.
What do you think?

W640 - Water Outlet Fault

I solved this problem this morning, after several months with intermittent "water outlet fault" error messages.

Our pin trap was cleared many times over the months. The propellor turned freely. However, the problem persisted.
So I unplugged the machine, removed the back panel (8 or so hex screws) and located the point where the drainage hose meets the water draining pump. I then separated the hose from the pump and found 2 United States 10-cent pieces lodged together with gunk that effectively blocked the drainage hose. 10-cent pieces ("dimes") are the perfect diameter to get stuck there and not appear in the pin trap where you could easily see and remove them.

Three loads later, the machine is working according to spec. Hope this helps.

Have the same problem with our asko 1475. In the past, we would disconnect the dishwasher and when we reconnected the power, it ran fine. This time it isn't helping!

D3250 drain blocked error

usually these are blocked at the discharge end under the sink, especially if the hose is hooked to a copper pipe then shoved down the plumbing standpipe. It could also be in the hose behind the dishwasher if someone has fitted an extension onto the hose and used a small diameter coupler. Run the dishwasher on any cycle...if there is standing water you should hear the drain pump run first...if there is no standing water run it on a rinse and hold cycle. at the end of the cycle the pump will run. if you hear the pump, but no water is ejected out the drain hose under the sink, then you most likely have a clog in the hose near the end or in the middle if it has an extensio. if you dont hear the pump run, then its a bad pump and you need a new one (parts like that are covered for 5 years if you use an ASKO servicer) Good luck!
