Question about Dishwashers
When I turn on my main power switch the pump starts running , most of the lights flash and F2 comes up on the display. Dosen't matter if the door is opened or closed. If I dump water in the tank it gets pumped away. Controls are frozen and don't respond. Please help. Thanks
I have an asko washing machine that is displaying f2 how do i fix this problem myself without calling any one in

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
