Question about Asko W660

Asko W660-- "Wash Motor Fault" displayed, replace motor the fix?

I have a ten year old Asko W660. The display is showing "Wash Motor Fault". A repairman can out and looked at the display and without doing any other diagnostics (or touching the machine for that matter) announced, "The motor needs to be replaced."
Is replacing the motor the only solution to a "Wash Motor Fault" problem? Will replacing the motor fix the problem?

How do I fix a Miele W 2653 Wasker.


Hi dear. You did not mention what fault code but regards rest of your information, I would say 3 factors play up with it.
1- Tacho generator or it's plug faulty on motor
2- Motor Carbon brushes worn out or
3- Power/control unit ELP151-KD faulty.
I can advised to contact your local Miele center to diagnose your machine.Thanks.

Last month my aquasmart had fault code 130 payed repairman $180 to fix it now it has fault code 105 your webpage is very unhelpful knowing whats wrong with my aquasmart which is less than 5 years old


Did you look up your manual to help with the problem?

AquaSmart2 8kg - this is a link to download your manual

The good thing is that if you got Fisher & Paykel to come out, they offer a warranty on their service - so call them again and tell them the situation - they should come out for free....

E8 front loader washing machines


OVER CURRENT ERROR - Display shows 8E.IPM fault signal (this is caused by the overload of the MICOM INTO during motor action).
IPM: Integrated power module. The IPM controls the motor.
If the fault (low signal) happens to be sensed even once during the washing/rinsing stage, the motor stops immediately. However, during the dehydrating stage the signal is to be sensed, when the number of signals reads more than 6 per 500ms during the Washing or Rinsing cycle action.
If the motor stops working, in one direction ten times, "8E" Error is displayed.
During dehydrating, when the overload is sensed, the motor stops working at once and then feeds back to the initial stage of the dehydration unbalance sensing. When the feed back has occcurred twice, Error "8E" is displayed during the dehydrating unbalance sensing, No error happens by overload sensing. When it happens at more than 800rpm, the process is stopped compulsorily. Power Switch OFF can clear the overload error.

HOWEVER, the UK White goods website says:

E8
Temp too high on low temp washesNormally this will be the wash temperature thermistor or NTC that's faulty, please contact us if you need the thermistor with the model and serial number.

Had a "wash motor fault" in July 2007, had a


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

This can be associated with worn brushes in the motor or a sign of a damaged spot on the motor armature, hence when you spun the drum off of the dead/damamged part the unit began to operate.

If capable one can remove the rear panel, and with the aid of a flashlight inspect the brushes and armature.

I'm surprised how often I hear of these motors being replaced when in most cases a new set of brushes will remedy the problem...alas I guess there is more profit for technicians for relatively the same amount of work in replacing a motor.

Let me know if the problem re-occurs or if you'd like a service guide into inspecting the components I alluded to.

Thank you.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

tip machine back to see if water runs out,then see if it runs.but you may have a leak.also remove top panel and see if grey vent hose on rear of soap draw is leaking on drum end if so replace and glue.if water leaks from there it will damage the motor bearings ant the thermistor that sits above the motor.just tie the door release back on.look into the pump with a tourch,you may fin somthing still in there because if it cant drain it will over fill and cause on overflow fault.hope this helps

Shows "LE" in display.


"LE" error means the motor has overloaded. There is no way to fix this yourself. You will probably need a new motor. Call for an engineer.

Wash motor fault


We got the same problem 2 weeks ago. Overode it by swiching everything off and then back on, wish we hadn't as te machine stopped washing 1 week later. Motor has gone $300 and it took the electronic controler out as well $300. Labour $100 plus call out $95. It'sa serious falut and should get it fixed which begs the question why have fault indicator ro this problem if you cna overide it. In addition you probbaly have a minor water leak from above the motor, which can be fixed with silicone. Asko saya it's machine lasts 20 years, think again as for a $1900 machine very disappointed.
