I have an Asko W6021 front loading washing machine.
Water doesn't drain from the washer. I emptied the pin trap at the drain pump; still no luck. It won't spin, but if I drain the washer manually at the drain pump/pin trap, it will spin and the door will open after spinning, but only if I manually drain again after spinning. Do I have a bad drain pump?

Re: Water doesn't drain
You could have a bad drain pump.
have you checked the hoses that come from the bottom of the tub to the drain pump for anything that might be stuck in there,also check the hose that comes off the drain pump to the wall and look for an obstruction.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The drain access is at the bottom left of the washer. Insert a screw driver in the right side of the cut-out and and gently pry open. Open the drain pump. You will need a small container and a towel to help catch the water that will be coming out. After letting all the water out, clean out any objects in the drain pump. After cleaning out drain pump, put everything back together and restart washer.
Our W6021 front has had a couple of instances where it would not start the fill cycle as usual.
Normally it would be switched on,the relay would operate and the water would begin to enter the bowl.
We tried a number of things including checking the hose and inlet filter for blockage. We then checked the outlet drain pump trap and found a coin and a drill bit lodged in the entry hole to the trap.
Once the foreign objects were removed ,the machine operated as normal once again.
I will be very careful in future to empty my pockets of metal things.
F3 is a drain problem, check that the drain hose on the back is not kinked, if not then you may have a restriction in the drain pump. Follow these instructions:
The washing machine has a trap, where coins, hairpins and the like can get caught. To clean the filter and drainage pump: 1. Make sure the machine is empty of water and that it is switched off or better still unplugged,
2: Open the hatch on lower front of machine for the drainage pump,
3: Drain out the water, into a bowl, for example, by unhooking the drainage hose from the pin inside the hatch. You may have to remove plug in the end of hose, be careful, as water should flow real good from hose, if water does not flow from hose and you see water inside of tub area with door closed then stop here and call a tech for repair, if water flows then allow water to fully drain out, then
4: Unscrew the cover anti-clockwise and remove. You should then be able to see what is inside trap. More than likely you washed a rug and it came apart and blocked drain pump.
5: re-install in the reverse order and then try machine. In some cases you have to do this two or three times in a row to get it all out.
"F3" on Asko means the machine detected an interuption in the drain sequence. could be as simple as a coin or some other debris causing the fault, but it may be the pump is faulty as well. first things first.
**UNPLUG the unit from the dryer, or from the wall, which ever applies to your set-up**
in the lower left corner on the front of your washer is a "pin catcher/lint filter" for the pump (a pump insert asko calls it). unscrew this insert, clean out whatever is obstructing the pump and you should be fine to continue. unless the pump itself is at fault. **you will need to drain whatever water is in the unit into a drain, or pan thru the little drain line from the pump (refer to your manual if you have access to it).
I had this problem and found out there was something stuck in the drain hose. It also made my clothes smell sour. Unhook your drain hose stretch it out straight, run water through and maybe snake it if need be.
it is most likely your machine may have a draining problem. if it cant drain the water out the door wont open.
if you open the small door at the front bottom of the machine you will find the little black drain hose. unplug the hose off the door and drain machine. when the machine is empty try powering on and opening the door.
if still no luck you will see (in the same location) a red pull ring. undo the screw holding the ring in position and gently pull until the door releases.
it would be worth undoing the button trap lid to access the pump and check for any blockages (most common coins **** pins etc)
let me know how you get on.
I have similar issues with my Asko W660. Once it was a key stuck between the inlet to the pin trap and the trap itself. I got it out by jiggling and poking into the trap area with a narrow strip of plastic. Mostly, though, it just requires a stronger grip on the door to the pin trap--the little handle is slippery, and hard to get a good grip on. Try making a grip out of a piece of duct tape, or grabbing the handle with pliers.
