Question about Asko W6441 Front Load Washer
This past friday there was a neighborhood water emergency and the water was shut down for several hours. When I started the washing maching i heard pressure release sound comming from the water source and since then I've had the following problem
Here is the problem : Water won't stop filling the machine and spin cycle does not automatically start.
1. I start the washer
2. It fills normally
3. The spin cycle will not automatically start.
4. The Machine will continue to pour in water and drain continuously -- it did this all night long on Friday.
3. Even when the door is open, water starts pouring into the machine.
Is there something I can do , without calling a repair person.
Thank you very much for your help.
You need a new inlet valve take off the top panel then you see the inlet valve follow the inlet hose

If nothing else works, the washer door can be opened as follows:
•This must only be done in an emergency
if the machine's glass door does not open automatically when the program has finished.
•First check that there is no water left in the machine. If there is water left in the machine and it is not possible to run the Drain program, empty the machine by using the drain hose.
•Make sure that the main power switch is off and that the plug has been re- moved from the wall socket.
•You will find the emergency opener for the glass door in the double sealed bag.
•Open the glass door by putting the opener in the slot to the right of the lock on the door. Push the opener up or down and the door will open.

If you need to stop or interrupt a program after you start the machine, turn the Program Control knob
to 10 (Drain). Any water in the machine will be pumped out and you can then press the Door Open
button ( ) to open the door. To restart the washer, close the door and turn the controls to the desired
On the electronic control models, if you need to open the glass door during a wash or rinse cycle, press and hold the Door Open button for three seconds. The machine will stop and automatically drain enough water so the door can be opened safely. The program will resume when you close the door. The inlet valve will come on to
ensure the proper water level.
In case of mechanical failure, you can use the Emergency Door Opener located by the drain pump. To use the Emergency Door Opener, remove the screw holding the cord handle (loop) and pull the cord down.
Hope this answers your question even if it isn't necessarily the answer you wanted. Thank you for choosing FixYa and good luck.
