Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

Asko d3100 I have an asko d3100 dishwasher. Its just out of warranty and now the cup saucer light flashes and the water pump is continuing to pump even though there is no water. The dish washer wont start. What is the problem. I think the flashing cup saucer light is reporting a fault. If I know what the fault is for example faulty relay or pump then I can replace it. Can you help me with this one? Is there a service manual I prbably can get my hands on.

    Thanks for that. I'll give it a go.

    I opened the rear of the dish washer and behold. There was water in the base tray. I cleaned it out and the dishwasher started up again as normal. Then I found that the water inlet solenoid was the cause. It is leaking.

    Thanks again!!!

Remove the lower panel at the back of the machine. If there is water on the bottom pan, wipe it up with a towel or so, and the machine schould be like new again ;-)

Good luck

Asko dishwasher heavy wash light flashing and pump continually drains even with door open


The reason our Asko D3250 had this problem was because of a leak. The pump hose (approx. 2" black rubber hose - find it here http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Pump-Hose/8801409/1810263) was split, causing a leak and the blinking heavy wash light. The sensor did its job and picked up the leak.
If you're handy you don't necessarily need to call a repairman in to accomplish the work. You don't need to pull the front of the dishwasher apart. Unplug the power to the dishwasher. Take off the back bottom panel. Next, test where the leak is coming from. Place pans below the holes found on the bottom of the dishwasher. They are visible when removing the back panel and are most likely at the rear of the dishwasher. Plug the power back in then start the dishwasher. If your problem is a leak, you will easily spot it with a flashlight. After ordering and installing your part, make sure to dry all water that has settled in the bottom of the dishwasher. You can easily accomplish this through the back of the dishwasher with the panel removed. If it's still damp the sensor will continue to detect water. Once dry, start the cycle to make sure there are no more leaks before reinstalling the panel.

I have an ASKO D3250 and it sounds like the pump is continuously trying to grind food, or something like that - it is quite loud - and it never begins the wash - no water is pumped. I checked the manual...


if no water is entering the machine the problem is not going to be in the pump the noise you hear is the pump running with too litle water check for power at the water valve if proper voltage is present you have a faulty or plugged valve if no power check the float switch it is there to keep the dishwasher from over filling it may be stuck in the over fill position which would explain the fault code you mentioned . try to reset it and test .

Gurgles with no water coming in; keeps trying to run with door open.


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

When the door is opened do the lights all flash, or are the flashing regardless if door is open or closed ?

Based on your description I`d suspect the unit has sensed an overfill problem...the flashing "LED`s" is how the Asko indicate this scenario.

The gurgling is simply due to the drain pump being on continuously.Though you say the machine is empty, the overfill basin may be full of water.

**Turn off the power to the unit via the house breaker before attempting any repairs or service**

If you remove the toe panel/kick plate below the door, check to see if the basin is full of water or has any sign of water being present. If left several days it will typically evaporate and appear to be normal again...until it overfills again.

There are other factors which could cause this of course, including a faulty pressure switch, but we can go down that path once you inspect the overfill basin for water.

Good luck.

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 d3120 flashing coffee cup


I had to slide the dishwasher forward (undercounter installation)and tip it forward as far as possible. Water leaks onto floor, but then the internal controller seems to reset and the ASKO now works normally again. What kind of idiot would design a control module that does not incorporate a power-off interlock? FAIL FAIL FAIL - Bad, ASKO, Bad. Go to your room.

Pump continuing to run -Asko D3100


Micro switch was actually faulty,moisture had entered the switch and caused internal tracking and shorting out the micro switch ,making the pump run continually as it thought it was still in flood mode.
Flood appears to have been caused by a pin hole in the water fill hose in the base of the dishwasher,causing water to spray on the micro switch and eventually biuld up in the base of the machine.

Dishwasher fault


I got this with another dishwasher. On that one it meant the water wasn't feeding into it (tap switched off, kink in inlet tube, etc.)
