High water level is often in the pan under the dishwasher.

  1. Unplug or turn off breaker.
  2. Remove kick panel.
  3. Remove water from pan.
  4. plugin/turn on breaker.
  5. watch for leaks.

SOURCE: Water in drain pump for ASKO D5122XXL dishwasher

Yes, Asko dishwashers can leave a small amount of water in the sump after a cycle completes. At the beginning of most cycles the sump is pumped and new water added.

I think I see the problem based on "futureloginn"'s highly rated solution. You have a dishwasher. You need to stop washing clothes in it.

SOURCE: Asko Dishwasher Model D1716B Does not fill

Have an Asko 1325 that experienced similar scenario. Removed the unit from the kitchen to the outside to do a thorough exploration. After all a dead machine is a good one to learn on. With the unit electrically disconnected, I explored within the lower guts of the machine. Found some foreign plastic debris within the turbine. Then wigled and removed each electrical connector and reconnected back. There may be corrosion within the contacts. After this procedure I test ran the machine on the outside and it worked.

BTW a common defect with the Asko is the electrical wiring leading up the main door panel, from below the machine. The wires are typically too short and the metal edges of the unit are razor sharp. You guessed it, wires become cut and cause an electrical short at best, or a fire at worst. See the photo for proof by practice. This is why an Asko can be a fiasco. b84ee89.jpg8bbfcfc.jpg

SOURCE: ASKO 1555 dishwasher won't run.

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description " The anti flood device motor won\'t stop running but we\'ve removed all the water " It is likely nothing very serious.

The flashing lights are directly related with overfill scenarios for Asko dishwashers of this era...DW95.5, meaning the control is indicating an overfill has been detected. Whether the unit has actually overfilled or not remains to be seen.

In the event it has, the outlet/drain pump motor is automatically turned on via either the pressure switch or a float in the base if sensing an overfill and removing water from inside the dishwasher will do nothing to resolve this error, but you can...

**before proceeding turn the dishwasher power off via the home breaker panel, or unplug it from the wall if that is possible...most are hard wired to the home electrical...safety first**

The first thing to do is remove the toe panel/kick plate and inspect the base for water. If water is present, with the aid of a sponge, towels, or a wet-dry shop vacuum, absorb the water from the base.

If the unit works fine after resetting the power/breaker it can likely be chalked up to a drain back-up or obstruction in the drain hose or pump.

If not, there are a couple of other possibilities that I'd focus on.

**again insure power to the unit is off**

The first is the float and subsequently, float switch. If you've removed the service panel at the bottom, or toe plate, you need to locate the float and it's switch. It will be located directly behind where your main electrical junction is...

i.e.

macmarkus_4.jpg
Once you've located the float behind the main connection plate, you should see something like this image below,

i.e.


macmarkus_6.jpg
With the aid of a long screwdriver or if you can reach it, move the float up and down and listen closely for the switch to "click", indicating it is indeed functioning.

Restore power again, and see if this resolves the issue, if not try this next...

The pressure switch too can cause all the lights to flash. It is the component which controls the normal fill level and the overfill detection...pre float activation. The float is primarily the last ditch safety to notify the user in the event of a overflow, back-flow, or leak underneath the unit to service or call for service to the unit.

It too is located under the machine and is mounted to the sump well assembly as shown, the large arrow indicates the switch while the small is the hose.

i.e.

macmarkus_7.jpg
The issue is possibly just the hose going to the switch is clogged with debris such as dirt, detergent buildup etc and will be remedied by blowing it out.

The best way to do this is to remove this hose at the switch in the location indicated above, be very careful as to not break the hose off with the part of the switch inside, they can be delicate.

I typically work it loose with a tiny screw driver gently working it away from the switch. Once removed, pour a small amount of hot water, white vinegar or "CLR" through the sump from within the tub...or you can try blowing it through with "lung power".

The other end of the hose is located at the back of the sump well and is quite vulnerable to blockages over time due to detergents, dirt, and such.

This is the location...do not break this or you will need to replace the entire sump well...no fun.

Large arrow is pointing back to pressure switch, small indicates connection to sump well, sorry for the poor quality...it's hard to get in there with a camera phone, ha ha !

i.e.


macmarkus_8.jpg
That's almost the extent of the possible causes of this error. Of course it could be the pressure switch has failed, the float switch has failed or ultimately the control has failed, but not likely.

This attachment below is also a retrofit tip from Asko regarding changes made to the pressure switch on the early DW95 series machines. you can identify if yours is this type by looking for the small white suppressor in the pressure switch...if yours doesn't have it you may want to change it while your at this repair.

Available at "repairclinic.com" for about $45USD.

Hope this helps move you forward, or even better resolves the issue altogether. Let me know of course, I will help you move further if necessary.

Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Technika wash


disconnect the power cord from the mains (not the switch) and press the power button for 3 seconds. Connect it back and check.
If the issue persists, you will have to provide more details; does the machine stars? is it heating the water? it does nothing?
Also check for any filter blockage and the water intake.

I have a 1776 Asko model & it doesn't finish its cycle-code mesage f-2 keeps appearing. Can you help me out.


Hi
F2 is a drain error and dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Year old Bosch SHU33A0UC won't start. Lights on


Light's on mean you have power.

Initiate the self test program by doing the following -

To start test program, press and hold both POWER SCRUB PLUS and RINSE & HOLD program buttons, then turn unit on
by pressing ON/OFF button. When program buttons are released, lights above them will flash. To end test program, press
ON/OFF button.
To check program indicator lights (POWER SCRUB PLUS, REGULAR WASH and RINSE & HOLD), press and hold each
program button. When REGULAR WASH program button is pressed, CLEAN light also comes on.
To start testing, press both POWER SCRUB PLUS and RINSE & HOLD buttons a second time. When testing has ended
and a fault was detected, the following indicator lights will be lit:
POWER SCRUB PLUS = Heater fault
REGULAR WASH = Water filling fault (over or under filling)
RINSE & HOLD = NTC (temperature sensor) fault – note circulation motor stops shortly after it started
during an NTC fault
To check for heater, high limit or flow switch problems, start testing until heating starts. Using a meter with a current coil,
measure current going into dishwasher. If current is ~ 11 A, then heater, high limit and flow switch are OK. If current stays
at ~ 1.5-2 A, then heater, high limit or flow switch are faulty.
If water level switch (f1) has failed (opened), REGULAR WASH light will come on and unit will continually fill and drain
where testing won't be completed. If flow switch (e5) has failed (opened), water won't heat (to 150ºF) and water won’t stop
circulating. If NTC probe (f2/f4) has failed (opened), RINSE & HOLD light will come on immediately and testing will end
shortly after water has started circulating.
If more than one fault occurs, more than one light will be lit.

Let me know what you figure out. I can repair these boards most of the time.

Remove the backpanel of the machine, and look if there is water at the bottom of the machine. If so, use a towel or so to dry up the water. This should solve the prob.
