    Same problem...has happenned twice in the last year....always a result of not cleaning the dishes enough before putting them in the diswasher..then it clogs the drain system and we need to call for service...not an easy the base of the dishwasher needs removed and then cleaned and put back together. I wish the machine had a strainer that would not allow the particles to get so far down the line that it requires a technician to assist....

Thank you for tip.

I have Aske DM 44, same F2 error indisplay and motor is running contanlly. In this model you have to remove the backpalte (where you see in/out water tubes + power cable) in oder to see the moter area and sump for collectin water. In my case lots of water (1-1.5 Liter i guess) accumilated in the sump. So i removed water and dried the area for moisture. Powered up and no more F2 error and machine is back to normal.

The mistary is how so much water got collected in sump in the first palce.

CoolE, StuFiji, Long Tac Sam,
I have a Asko D1876, but had a similar problem to the above. I discovered the problem with my machine was a leak in the drain from the main tub. The cycle would begin normally, then default to F2 mid-cycle as enough water would collect in the basin below the motor and then trip the float, causing the machine to default to F2. The way to tell if your machines have a similar problem is to take off the face-plate just below the door on the front (it is held in place with screws). Once that is off, you will see the motor area and the pan below - if that pan is dry, then the problem is likely your float or the water level sensor. If that pan has water - then you have a leak (my problem). Once you remove the water (I used a sponge) that will return your float to its normal position and your machine should go back to a regular cycle (no longer F2). I recommend running a wash with that face plate off - that will allow you to see where the leak is coming from - mine was from the main drain - I was able to fix it using Plummer's Putty ($3.75 at ACE Hardware) - removing the seal, then applying the putty and putting it back in place. It has worked great since. Hope this helps, Doug

Dishwasher asko 1895 the pump the working the lights are flashing but the machine is not working

The lights flashing is telling that there is a fault in the dishwasher.
I am assuming you have emptied the dishwasher after the drain cycle failed to work due to the pipe block.
You will have to make a fresh start. Empty the dishwasher, turn the power mains switch off and on to reset the dishwasher.
Start a new cycle and see if flashing lights stop flashing. If still same problem you will have to note which light(s) are flashing and send a post on this page. There is a chance the impeller in the drain pump may have sufferred some damage due to drain block depending on how long the motor operated before you found the problem with the drain.

Pump continually running with F2 displayed.

There is water in the lower pan that you must access by removing the toe kick plate and then the panel behind it. you will see water in the overflow area. Clean that out and all will be well. Asko's are awesome dishwashers that capture any water they may overflow or leak internally instead of it going on your floor, then a float switch triggers the F2 error and runs the drain pump.

My Asko Dishwasher D1976 on the main panel all of the top lights are on and in the display window it flashes F2. The motor is on but nothing else is happening can you help. I have checked that drains are...


Error F2 in asko dishwashers indicate high water level. This may happen due to plugged drain pump or due to faulty water inlet valve. To resolve the issue remove the back plate and check the drain pump. Disconnect the hoses from the drain pump and clear the lint from the hose and the pump area. Lot of water would be ther when you'll remove the hose from the pump, be ready to collect it. Let it dry and now the dishwasher will work perfectly now.

Hope it helps...

Asko D3230 dishwasher pump will not turn off, with main switch on

This is a anti flood activation. It is a safety device (polystireen float and micro switch at the base of the washer) that keeps the drain motor running due to water leak / spill detection. Dry the water and rectify the leak (normaly pipe or clamp leak) and this should solve the problem.

f2 means water in the flood pan remove dishwasher from under bench and tip back the water will run onto the floor.then test the dishwasher while it is still out you can remove the rear panel were the hoses go through and check the drain hose for leaks also check the white plastic ring under the metal filter for cracks,they look like a dark far as the dispenser the most common cause is the main board,remove door skin and control panel and check the back of the board for damaged tracks,you will also have to replace the wax motor(red) on the drying fan(if fitted)check the solenoid on the dispenser for open circut.hope this helps.Ian.

F2 fault

The F2 error codes relates to high water level It could be a clogged in the drain line. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. You should remove this line and clear it form any debris in the hose or the hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again. As well it could be a defective or a malfunction pump. Good luck!

F2 error message flashes, cannot reset.

Try to find out from where water leaking from (pump or inlet valve). The leaking one, should be replaced. Good luck !
