Question about Asko D1776 Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

My problem is with a Asko D1996

The unit keeps running, and no water enters. Yesterday I had a drain clog, and the water backed up into the dishwasher tank. We cleaned water out of the unit. Today the unit goes on, I hear the motor, and the pump. stays on even when the door is opened.. Water does not enter the machine. I read an earlier reponse to fix. It said to remove the back panel, and dry out the water that is probably there. Is this the back panel of the machine or the door. Where will the water be. And why did this happen? Thank you.

Remove the panel down on the backside of the machine. Dry ut the water on the bottom pan with a towel or so. Should work like new;)

My asko 3122 dishwasher wont drain

It is likely that there is some minor clogging in the diswasher drain filter.Clean as per the user instructions available with the dishwasher. Also likely the kitchen drain could be clogging. Buy a dishwasher cleaning kit from supermarket. Finish make a good product. Use it to clean the dishwasher as per instructions on the kit.

Asko D1996. 2 wet spots on floor in front of unit, (~1/2 cup). It continued to run, but the inside bottom of the machine was dirty, as though it slowly drained its wash water. Dishes mostly clean..

If you can open the panel and allow the panel to dried then tested to confirm before the panel is removed.
Use a hair dryer or a good air jet to remove all moisture from the panel and see if this works.

Water does not enter the machine. I didn't realize this when II ran it and when I opened it, it was very smoky inside. The dishwasher is 8 years old and the model is D1996.

Either the pressure switch has failed or clogged with food. This unit has a flow meter rather than a water level switch, so pressure of water and flow of water is the factor here. If the program is bypassed, the unit can run without seeking level of water in the unit. First check pressure switch from clogs in hose, then recheck fill mode to see if this made a difference. If not, replace water valve.
I hope this helped.

Water will not drain out but the water pump keeps running even when the door is openned or closed.

Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

My ASKO D1996 Dishwasher will not turn on, checked the power and it is running, but no lights or anything turns on. I don't have the water connected to the machine, could this be the problem?

NO, you should get light actions even if the water was not connected. this is a main control issue. there is a control board kit available for your unit. you will need to replace this damaged control in this case. the logic sector is damaged.

Water won't spray

Sounds like whatever caused the clogged drain may also have clogged the sprayer arm.  If it is clogged it will not spin.  Remove the arm and if it is clogged see if you can clean it out.

Lights on the Asko D1996 keep blinking

This depends on the blinking pattern. Of the eight lights on the panel, if the four on the left blink on and then the right four lights blink on as the left ones go off, and keep blinking back and forth, that just means the mode has been set and the Start button pressed. After closing the door it should just continue on wherever it is in the cycle. (This is normal operation).
If you hold down the Start button, this resets the dishwasher. If you then close the door, nothing will happen because it thinks it's done.
If the lights are blinking in a different pattern, such as they all blink on and off in unison, that indicates an error condition and needs to be diagnosed. If the pump is not running constantly, then at least it's not because water is leaking out somewhere.
