Question about Asko 24 in. 1805 Built-in Dishwasher
Welcome to FixYa. Based on your description ( specifically the white smoke and smell ) I would suspect the control board is faulty.
If the unit does not stop when the door is open can be related to a couple of things, i.e. stuck door switch plunger, overfill switch activated etc.
However, these faults are usually easy to identify and again based on the fact that none of the indicators are working I`d rule those both out quite quickly.
The control board for those is quite expensive, typically above $400. The original Asko part is #80 706 99-04, but many part`s vendors list it as "no longer available" (NLA) as new. That`s not to say you can`t get one, many places also offer "rebuilt" controls but one typically has to request this option.
If you think you could pull the panel apart to inspect it for burn pathways etc. on the board I would certainly try and assist you, but usually there is also a "cause" that damaged the control and it sure sounds like a expensive repair any way you look at it.
I would be one of a minority I think in saying these are great dishwashers, but typically they are doomed from day one due to improper installation and improper service by unqualified techs & "handymen".
If you decide to try to inspect or repair just remember please...
