Asea (Asko) Cylinda 12000 Washing Machine Spin Problem

My usually reliable Cylinda 12000 Washing Machine stopped due to being unbalanced with a load of towels. Since then the drum spins during normal operations but not on the spin cycle, is there a reset mode to restore the spin cycle?

No reset. Carbon brushes are worrn out. Consider changing the bearings while you have the motor apart. Se for spares.

I have an Asea 9500 that will be 25 years old.It has been ana amazing machine.But now it will wash but not spin out.Instead of spinning the control dial just clicks and sticks. When I move the dial manually it will still not spin. Can anyone tell me if my old friend can be fixed in the UK ? Thank you.

Wixe167 just stopped running while spinning on last cycle

It stops spinning because the load is unbalanced. It will cycle over and over until the load is even then it will kick into a faster spin. Unbalanced loads could be due to too many items in the washer of a stabilizer problem in the hardware of the machine,

My machine stopped mid cycle and displays the letters dc, flashing. What is happening? thank you

I believe The dc code is due to an "unbalanced" load situation. Is this happening when it tries to spin? I know some washers have switches that sense this. Is this in the wash or spin cycle?

We have Asko WMachine Cylinda 12000 and it won't spin out the water. Machine working fine but won't spin or drain water out.


Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description, " Machine working fine but won\'t spin or drain water out " it could be just a clogged pump insert/filter.

It's not very difficult to check though, you'll first need to remove the panel beneath the should just pull forward and off.

**Unplug the washer before servicing the unit first** You may also need to have a wet-dry shop vacuum or plenty of towels as there will be quite a bit of water present.

Carefully remove the filter from the pump by turning it ( slowly to allow water out gradual )...the issue with these Asko pump inserts/filters is they can get so clogged up they are stuck and difficult to remove...



these can become clogged with items such as coins, hair-pins etc. that can actually damage the part. Once the filter is removed check the pump thoroughly as well as the hoses to rule out any other possible blockage.

Unfortunately once they are clogged to an extreme degree removing the filter by normal means becomes difficult or impossible without breaking it as I alluded to.

The image I attached above is an example of a pump I had to remove and disassemble to clean it out so the filter could be removed/unscrewed, hence the need for the "worm-gear" clamps had to be used to replace the original "one-time" clamps.


If you indeed break this part during your attempts to remove it, a replacement is available, Asko original part # 88 010 69 and available at on-line retailer "" for about $25-$30USD.


Let me know how you make out or if you require further assistance. Ultimately the drain pump itself could be faulty, but I'd certainly check for obstructions first.

Thank you for choosing FixYa and good luck.

Whirlpool washing machine make loud noise after spin cycle quits. Noise continues until cycle winds down. Sounds like a machine gun being fired

Hello,have to tell you that most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping noise during the spin, the load of cloth may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the cloths, then restart the machine. Repeat these steps if necessary.

Roper washing machine- unbalanced spin - rocking agitator

I usually stand in front of the washer and take the plams of my hands and forcefully provide a force with the heel of my hands on the side front corners and the lip comes up

Another option is to pull the washer out and remove 2 clips (usually requires quarter inch nut driver to allow the top to come up

This should allow you to get the top off to see if a spring has broken or slipped off
