    I would like to hook the machine up to the sink via either hot or cold water supply, not both, will this work?

You can only order Asko parts through the Asko Website or 800 number. Some parts dealers may have parts that were "bootlegged" in, but I would question the age of those parts. Hope this helps. jj@standardtvandappliance

My ASko washer machine will not start up, all I hear is a short humm when I press the start button. I took the cover off and noticed the control board has a burned chip on it. There is also a resistor with...

Sounds like the control board is fried. If you have gotten it open here is a link for a new board:
Good luck! And make sure the thing is unplugged before you work on it!

Need to repair model 20605 washer, motor does not run, told the brushes were bad - replaced still wouldn't run, told that motor control circuit board could be bad - $600 to replace, how do you check a...


Welcome to FixYa.

Sorry to hear about your trouble shooting problems. I hope I can help move you forward in the right direction.

Have you run a self-diagnostic which is built into the Asko washer's control ? Furthermore, Did you initially receive an error code of "F6" ?

What led to the changing of the brushes in the motor, and was the motor windings ohm value checked to confirm or dismiss the motor was worth brushes ? The armature inspected ?

This how to run a fault tracing program ( in the event you don't know )

What you will/should see...

Let me know what you've done or found to this point and I'll try to help in whatever manner I can. It is possible the motor control board is the fault, but there is a means to get to that point first.

There was also a period of time during production some of the controls had the wrong fuse placed in below for memo.


This is not very likely considering the age of your machine, however I felt it was worth mentioning. I'll watch for your next post.

Washing machine 6342 front loader has F4.........what does this mean

Hello, welcome to Fixya.

The "F4" code on those Asko washer`s indicates a fault has been detected with the thermistor.

This of course does not mean the thermistor is indeed faulty, it may have just become loose from the bottom of the tub.

Here`s what to look for and what it does...

Part no. : 80 616 63
Resistance: 40-60K ohms
Room temperature: 68°–86° F (20–30° C)

The thermistor ( for temperature measurement ) is
located between the motor cradle and the holder.

The thermistor measures and controls the water temperature via a heating element. In the event of errors the heater is switched out if the thermistor short-circuits or is disconnected from the program control board or programmer.

**unplug the unit from the dryer or wall whichever applies to your first**

If you are capable remove the rear panel and top panel to ohm out the thermistor to varify if it is within` the values I provided...or perhaps it has dislodged from it`s position...though that is unlikely, it could happen.

In the event you need a thermistor and you feel you can replace it yourself I`ll show you how...I do recommend calling in an authorized Asko service provider.


1. Remove the top cover
2. Remove the rear panel
3. Remove the thermistor by pulling it out to the left.
4. Remove the thermistor header connector from the program control board.
5. Install the new thermistor by threading it through the hole between the cradle and holder.
6. Connect the thermistor to the program control board.
7. Replace the rear panel.
8. Replace the top cover. (Don't forget the two
star washers for the outer screws.)

Hope this helps move you forward or at least gives you an idea of what needs to be looked at.

Let me know if you require further assistance. Thanks for choosing FixYa today.

Good luck.

Power light is not turning on. I have replaced the 2 15 amp fuses in the washer (not ASKO fuses) and I have confirmed that the beaker panel is working fine and the dryer which is linked to the washer is...

There is need to check if there is power getting at the fuses and power getting to timer control board.That is done reading volts with a multimeter.

For safety reasons I need to remind that all test with live power must be done by a trained repairman.

If there is no power at all and you already replaced the two fuses, then problem can be power cord, internal wiring harness, control assembly .

Asko Washer/Dryer (WCAM 1812); Dryer not working.

Update: The dry cycle is now working! Apparently the automatic overload/shut off on the heating element got tripped. We had a technician out this morning. He unplugged the machine, removed the top of the unit, and simply pushed a little red/orange button that was on top of the heating element. When we plugged it back in the heating element worked again. The technician was able to troubleshoot this by checking the amps while running the dry cycle. But the proof was really when we did a load and the machine heated up (just like it used to) during the dry cycle. This was actually a relatively simply fix - though could be dangerous as you have to open up the electrical area. The reset button is rather inconspicuous and located on top of the heating element, which is long (runs front to back in the center part of the top of the machine - which you can get to by removing the lid/top outer housing) and silver - wrapped in insulation. It's pretty obvious. The button is in a little metal fixture on top of the heating element. The technician told us that the rest can get tripped when the unit overheats. (We think this happened when the laundry tub overfilled and the hose was totally submerged - the machine was working overtime to pump out the water.) The technician also warned that this can happen if the machine gets turned off suddenly mid-cycle - especially during the drying cycle. He said that the heating element gets so hot, it needs to have a gentle cool down period, which is marked on the dryer dial for the last 20 minutes of the cycle. I hope this helps others!

I am a technician for Asko in Australia.The blackness on the motor control unit(circuit board) is probably carbon dust from the carbon brushes in electric motor.Likely problem is motor brushes have totally worn the armiture in motor or the MCU needs replacing due to earth leakage or short.Purchasing the parts from Asko should be no problem, but if you purchase and install electrical componenents only to find problem unresolved, you can't return installed parts for a refund. Also the breather hose from the detergent dispensor to outer tank can leak from tank connection when spinning load , and result in water running down outer tank and onto the electric motor causing circuit breaker to trip.....possibly damaging motor too. Goodluck!!
