Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

My Asko D1606 doesn't seem to be filling/retaining enough water to pump actively through the swing arms. When I add a litre or so of water in manually and hold in the door catch, I can see it appear to start working properly. The tablet is still sitting on the bottom of the dishwasher after the cycle has ended and the dishes are still dirty. The pump sounds all right and it is emptying fine. Also, probably due to the lack of water, the cutlery basket has melted right through, and I am sure any particles of melted plastic going through the drainage couldn't be good for it.

Check to see it the dishwasher has been pushed back ever so slightly. The water coming into dishwashers and exiting are on timers and if the hose is pinched this can affect it. Your dishwasher may appear to be in the same place but just pull it forward and try it again. What has you got to loose except big repair bill or a new machine.

Asko D1606 won't fill, and sounds like pump is running


Hi,

This means the unit has taken on water to the base pan and will not allow you to do anything until the water is removed. Once the water is gone you will need to locate or fine why water reached the base pan to correct this problem. Most common reasons, too much subs, leaking hose, leaking drain hose behind the unit and traveled back into the unit. Without seeing the unit the cause would just be a guess. I hope this helps. If you unplug the unit allow 2-3 days to dry out, this may allow you to run the unit and locate the original cause of your leak. good luck

HI,

The problem can be with not enough water to get the arm to spin. To test this just add a pan of water to the wash cycle and see if the arm spins. If it does then the problem may be with the water intake line. There is a screen at the connection where the intake line enters the dishwasher. So turn the supply valve off and disconnect the intake line and remove particles that may be traped in the screen. The cause of the particles is from the hot water tank that tend to accumulate a bit of corrosion on the bottom of tank. To remedy this just open the valve at the bottom of the hot water tank and drain it in a pan until the water is clear.

Asko 1875 dishwasher, Spray arms don't seem to


It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors or feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/PUMP MOTOR/DRAIN to work when it is commanded .If this does not happen then the voltage at these points must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage/drive from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If the water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor. The water pressure must be good and the spraying must be seen to be good. If there is low pumping or pressure then the spray arms will not turn around to inject with pressure. If so the pump must be checked for clogging.

Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water.

Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.

The spray arms on my Asko 1716 dishwasher do not turn - water enters the unit and drains easily, and the heating element also seems to work. The filters and sump are clear, as are the air gap and the holes...


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description and provided the dishwasher is indeed 1) an Asko D1716 and 2) filling with water, draining, heating, but not circulating, It sounds like a busted wash impeller within the main motor/circulation pump, as you mentioned. What you may not know, is the impeller itself is not serviceable, the entire motor/pump must be replaced unfortunately.

Before declaring it is indeed a motor/impeller issue, do you hear a quiet sound of a motor starting once the unit has completed filling with water ? And be sure the unit is actually filling with water, this image below indicates the normal water level to look for....

The pump obviously it will be super quiet if the wash impeller is broke as I suspect it may be...almost like a fountain, since the Asko are very quiet under normal conditions. You will have to either get right down with your ear to the bottom or run it with the door open by activating the door switch with a screw-driver and look for visual/audible clues.

If so that is a tell tale of no wash action yet the motor runs, hence broken impeller. If you don't hear anything it may be a wire come off the main motor/circulation pump or severed somewhere between the motor and control, maybe where the door pivots during opening...but not likely.

This unfortunately is common with Asko built dishwasher`s and it is a case of being a victim of their own design.

What happens typically is the ball-bearings from the upper rack holders ( which are plastic, hence fatigues due to heat and fall apart ) come out making their way into the sump, hence breaking the wash impeller from the motor.

Let me know what you find and I'll try and help you move forward from there. If you need direction to remove the circulation motor and pump I can do that, but it is a pretty involved repair and requires pulling the unit from the cabinet. Check those other possibilities first and tell me what you find.

I'll watch for your reply.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Hi Tony,

I have the same machine (D3350) and almost the same problem.

Mine starts each cycle fine - pumps out - fills - rinses - pumps out tht first load and then does not fill again. If I manually fill with a bottle (about 2 litres) for each subsequent cycle then it washes as well as it ever did.

Seeing it fills once it cannot be the water supply, nor the solenoid that operate the water supply. So, my guess is the control panel.

Like you I would love to simply take advantage of the PC Upgradeable featurewshich seemed so attractive at the time of pruchase.

My Asko 11505 washer fills only a little water then shuts off. If I drain the washer with the drain hose from under the machine, then the machine will start up and fill enough water to fill the hose again, then shut off.

Asko D1706.The washing arms have stopped turning.


Can you hear the motor running? If the motor is runningand machine is full of water, but not pumping water around, you have one of the following problems:
-a blockage in the filters or sump preventing enough water getting to motor impellor,
-blocked jets in spray arms themselves,
-or I have had cases where the impellor has broken off the motor, hence motor runs but doesn't pump any water around. Check for blockages first, wouldn't suggest you take motor out and disassemble unless qualified or confident to do so (it's not an easy job if you haven' done it before!!)

Dishwasher not pumping water


Hi, I have an ASKO 1606 and it stopped turning on. This happened after the sink drain got blocked. All that would happen when switched on was the sound of the pump trying to pump water out. I opened up the panel on the back and found the tray inside full of water. As I started scooping the water out I heard what sounded like a switch clicking on and off. I think there must be a safety float switch or something. Once the water in the tray was cleared everything worked fine again. No more hand washing dishes!! WOOHOO
