Question about Asko 1385 Dishwasher

1 Answer

Dishwasher isn't dispensing soap or rinsing well.

My dishwasher isn't adequately dispensing the soap. I found a dishwasher tab half-broken at the bottom of the dishwasher. It also isn't adequately rinsing the dishes that get soap on them. Most things are covered in a film. What should I do to fix this?

Why does it keep dispensing soap?


What do you mean "keep dispensing soap"? Is this a GE dishwasher with an automatic soap dispenser? Or do you mean that the soap lid won't latch or stay closed? Or are you talking about the rinse-aid dispenser leaking rinse-aid (which is fairly common)?

The soap dispenser drawer is supposed to open during the cycle. Try first to understand if the drawer is opening or not during cycle.

If the drawer is not opening, then check if the opening mechanism is stuck, if it is blocked by dirt and soap, if it is broken, or if something, for examble a basket too close to dispenser drawer is preventing the drawer from opening.

Some dishwasher works only with powder, in that case indications are given on the owners manual.

If the drawer opens and the table, or powder is still staying stuck in the drawer, then that means that the spray does not have enough power to solve the tablet.
In that case check spray arms and impeller pump.Also check water temperature.

If the problem is also happening with powder, then it is probably a drawer not opening on cycle.

Dishwasher suds up and leaks during wash


Suds in a dishwasher usually come from using too much soap or the wrong kind. Soap can build up over times causing problems. First start a cycle.Do not add detergent or any dishes.When it starts washing, pour a cup of vegetable oil directly into the tub. This will cut the existing soap suds. You may need to try this a couple time before the dishwasher will drain. After all suds have been removed, load you dishwasher and start a cycle filling the detergent cup up half way. If it goes through the cycle with no problems, you should be all set. Still have the problem? A rinse aid dispenser that dispenses too much rinse aid will also cause the dishwasher to suds up. You can remove the dispenser from the door, flush it out and reinstall. Make sure you turn the circuit breaker off before taking the door apart. After rinsing it out, do not add rinse aid. Try the dishwasher and see if the problem goes away. I've seen people accidentally put liquid dish detergent in dispensers too. A dishwasher that has suds is apt to leak. Fix your suds issue and you most likely will fix you leak

There is a solenoid which pops open the soap lid after the initial rinse.

If the solenoid or soap lid latch is faulty, you will need to replace it. In the interim just poar your soap in the bottom of the dishwasher tray before cycle starts.

Only use a little amount as per normal. Dishwashing tablets are best as it is a measured amount and has the rinse aid built in.

Good luck.

Filled the rinse dispenser with liquid soap. how do I rinse this out? So I can use the washer without it sudsing up everywhere?


Hello chystalsbrr
Welcome,


You said you, filled the rinse dispenser with liquid soap. how do I rinse this out? So I can use the washer without it sudsing up everywhere?

You can try by turning off the breaker in the electric box that feeds the dishwasher for 5 minutes and see if when you turn it back on and the washer resets itself, and the soap door opens.
Or push cancel and then rinse and after it is done and goes to the dry cycle stop it and it should be open.

In the use of liquid soap in both a dishwasher and or washing machine you must use less soap. Half that of powder soap.
Or the suds will roll out of your dishwasher on to your floor. And this is not a malfunction on the dishwashers part. NO bad seal or anything!
In a clothes washer it will destroy the seal and bearing in less than 5 years!

Let me know how it goes!

Dishwasher soap dispenser sticks


Your soap is clotting because there isn't enough water being sprayed around inside.  The water spray washes the soap out of the dish, if all is working well.  My machine had the same problem.  I had sufficient water level, but the spray head wasn't spinning very well.  I found the end-most hole in the spray bar to be plugged.  It is the end hole that provides a jet that makes the head spin.  I cleaned a bunch of debris out of the hole and the mchine started working and cleaning like it was new.  That was quite an axccomplishment since the machine is 15 years old.
