    Had the same problem yesterday. According to the ASKO manual, F4 error message indicates a water inlet problem. F5 address the thermistor- at least on my model (W6441). Could find no problem on the inlet side.

    Went through the reset procedures several time and ran the quick cycle. Each time would stop in mid-cycle with same error.

    On a lark checked the drain trap and found $ 0.37. Cleaned that out and ran normally last night. We'll see what happens today. Go figure !

I have an f3 and f4 error code on asko washing machine front loader. i know what the error codes are just dont know where they are anyone can help I need it thanks

F3 indicates a problem with the drain pump. At the bottom left of the machine, theres a square cut-out. This is where the drain pump is located. Using a flat head screwdriver or similar object, insert in opening on right side and gently pry open the drain pump cover.
Once the cover has been opened, be careful when opening the drain pump, as there is always a little water left in the drain pump. Before you open the drain pump, place a small container on the floor below the drain to catch the water. Pull the small black hose from the door and let the water drain into the container. You can now open the drain pump to clean it out. Also clean the pump rotor at the back of the pump housing. Replace the drain cover and reconnect the drain hose securely back to its position on the door. Close the cover.

F4 indicates a problem with the water inlet valve. Make sure the water supply is fully turned on. If no water enters the machine, then turn water supply off. Disconnect the hoses from the water inlet valve to see if the strainer in the inlet connection is blocked. Reconnect the hoses and turn on water supply. Hopefully this solves your problem.

LED is flashing F3 while load is in the washing machine. It has stopped running. It is full of soapy water. ASCO W6441 Quattro 1400


The "F3" for Asko washer`s indicates a problem occurred during pump out or specifically with the pump.

Based on your description of the unit being "full of soapy water" I suspect you have the wrong detergent or too much in the machine. These Asko ( any front load for that matter and some hi efficient top load`s recently ) must be used with lo-sudsing detergent`s only, also known as "H-E" detergent. If the manufacturer`s recommendation to use only "H-E" is not followed the unit will not function properly. ( "H-E" detergent`s do not use nearly as much "soap" as an additive in the detergent thus there should be no or very little suds present with the proper amount, always use half or a third of what is recommended on the detergent container, after all, they are in the business of selling detergent. The more you use is a benefit to them and of little to no consequences...except to you the consumer ) Some symptom`s include not allowing the pump to drain the unit properly, hence creating an error code such as "F3".

You may be able to remedy the error by way of removing the item`s of clothing, add some white vinegar ( this will help neutralize the suds ) and run the washer thru a short wash or rinse cycle. You may need to repeat this procedure to wash away excessive soap buildup in the machine.

You may also need to prewash clothing previously washed with regular detergent or in top load machines to minimize sudsing as well. This is something I suggest to all my customer`s who are new to the front load world.

If this does not remedy the problem and in fact the unit just won`t drain, check the pump for any obstructions in the filter insert/pin trap.

Here`s how to check...

**1. Turn off the power to the machine.

2. Using a flathead screwdriver
or similar item,
gently pry open the
drain pump cover if present on your model.

3. There is always a small amount of water in
the drain pump area. Before you open the drain
cover, place a shallow container, such as a pie pan,
on the floor below the drain to catch the water.

4. Pull the small black drain
hose loose from its position
on the door cover and let
the water drain into the pan.

5. Twist the pin trap cover
counterclockwise and lift it

6. You can now clean out
any grit or small
objects. You should
also clean the pump
rotor at the back of the
pump housing.

7. Replace the drain cover and return the drain hose
to its position on the door.**

These are common issue`s to look for with Asko, or as I alluded to prior any front load machine. You may want to consider calling in an authorized Asko servicer if you are not completely comfortable with any of these suggestions or performing these procedures.

( I don`t know why my font changed nor how to change it back ,sorry not my computer right now it`s a netbook lol )

Hope this help`s solve your problem. If so please take a moment to rate the info I provided. If not let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you for visiting "fixya" for you Asko inquiries.

Good luck.
