Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

Asko 1555 Dishwasher will not drain. Bottom of kick panel pan will fill with water triping the float switch?, leaving an error code. Is it safe to assume that the out pump needs replacing. I had the kick panel off and smacked the motor housing a few times and it ran for a few loads, but is now again stopped working.

It might be the pump, or it might be an obstruction elsewhere. If you have an air gap on your sink/counter top, open it and check for debris. If it is clear, unscrew the main filter basket. There is a black plug on the left side of the bottom well and you can pull it out after removing the filter basket. Feel around for any obstruction, and see if it is clear. Pull out anything that is blocking it, and make sure that you can spin the impeller freely with your fingers.

I had an impeller break on me. It costs about $30 for the part, and is easy to replace if you are handy. Just remember to unscrew by turning clockwise. If the motor itself is bad, it's about a $75 part and about the same amount of work as changing the impeller.

I have an asko d3251 dishwasher that won't stop running. The device in the drain that spins won't stop. I had to shut the power off to the unit.


Our unit had leaking connection on outlet side of fill solenoid valve. Any leak will cause water to accumulate in base pan. there is a float switch in base pan as a safety mechanism when water is in pan it causes a styrofoam float to rise and make contact with switch. This tells machine there is a leak creates error code to run pump continuously until water is removed from base. Disconnet electric from unit first. you must pull dishwasher out to get at back panel. Remove lower back panel to get access to mechanicals of unit. Once you remove panel you should see water in pan. If you see water that is most likely same issue we had. soak up excess water or tilt unit to drain water out of pan. once water is gone unit should start normally. If you look underneath while unit starts up - don't touch anything while unit is connected to electricity! You should notice where water is coming from. Our unit leaked at hose connection from outlet side of solenoid fill valve. connector is a plastic cam-lock fitting with a flow sensor integrated into it. there is an o-ring between the two parts. it comes apart with a very small amount of counter-clockwise motion. perhaps only five or ten degrees of indexing and it falls right off. it is a very flimsy connection for the main water line. the o-ring on our unit Was slightly deformed and not seated correctly. could have been from original installers 4 years earlier! Asko needs to re-design this part. I replaced o-ring and unit is working again however I do not trust that this fitting will hold up over time. Very poor design in my opinion. Other design flaw I noticed while looking at mechanicals is circulating pump isolation mount is not in correct location for pump motor. rubber mount is stressed to the point of almost tearing off! No way for me to correct this since location of mount does not match position of motor. We will not replace this unit with another ASKO when it goes.

Code F2


If you hear the drain pump running but water stays in the bottom then you have to check if the kitchen sink drain is clear. More particularly if you have a garbage disposal unit in kitchen sink then make sure it is working and has been cleared before running the dishwasher. In case you do not hear any drain pump or it is rough and not draining then it may need to be replaced. The drain pump is available from this site.

Pump continually running with F2 displayed.


There is water in the lower pan that you must access by removing the toe kick plate and then the panel behind it. you will see water in the overflow area. Clean that out and all will be well. Asko's are awesome dishwashers that capture any water they may overflow or leak internally instead of it going on your floor, then a float switch triggers the F2 error and runs the drain pump.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F4 error in your Asko Dishwasher is a water fill fault and this indicates and over fill fault. To check and solve this problem please follow these steps:

1. Disconnect the power to the unit

2. Remove the lower access panels and check the tray under the dishwasher (you will probably find it is full of water)

3. Use a towel or a sponge to remove the water

4. There is a float that should stop the operation of the dishwasher and run the pump if water is in this tray. Check this pump to see if it is functional

5. Test the dishwasher

6. If there are no leaks from the dishwasher into the pan, check the drain hose under the sink

7. THE DRAIN HOSE MUST RUN UP TO THE TOP OF THE UNDERSIDE OF THE COUNTERTOP THEN DOWN TO THE DRAIN. (If the hose is not set up like this, water from the sink drain will flow into the dishwasher and overfill the tray

Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Our Asko D3112 was not draining, so we had maintenance drain the hoses to clear any blockage but it did nothing. They said it must be our pump not working. I ran one more cycle to see if things went back...


Check your manual to see if you have a drain pan at the bottom of the unit, and a 'float' that checks for water collecting there. On at least some Asko models, water collecting in the pan causes the float to rise, which then changes the operation of the dishwasher. Once that float switch turns on, the diskwasher will always run the drain pump whenever power is applied.
If this is the case for your machine, remove the kick panel. There likely is another panel behind that which covers the 'internals', including the drain pan area. You'll have to remove all of the water in the pan, and that will lower the float and return the controller to normal operation. THen you will have to diagnose the cause of the water collecting in the pan.
Another possibility is damage to the float such that it has turned on it's switch despite no water collecting in the drain pan. I've heard that in some cases a mouse will chew on the float and damage it, causing such machine operation.
In another thread, I posted my solutions to one cause of water collecting in the drain pan. In that case the drain pump was no longer reliably moving water out of the sump area inside the dishwasher. I had thought it was the manual dial control on my d1706 unit, until I learned that the dishwasher has this 'special' drain pan mode.

Asko D3122 dishwasher will not fill with water and will not turn off


you may have water under the dishwaher ... have any plumbing work done lately?

if the dishwaher overflows or leaks it will trip a float switch under the dishwasher... as long as it is triped it will run the drain pump.. and not let any water into the tub...

the water will have to be removed and the leak stopped before it will run a cycle....

Hope this helps if not let me know more about your problem..
