    Hi,



    I have the same problem, except I am able to touch the heating element while going through the fault diagnosis. We just rec'd this dishwasher that a friend had taken out when renovating. They barely used it, it looks brand new. I am thinking a connection must have come loose for the heating element. I am unable to download the use and care guide you mentioned, wondering if anyone could e-mail this to me. Thanks!

    Sorry for double post, I wanted to edit my last post but coudlnt...So let me start all over again...
    My 19 years old machine always worked great, paid 1200$ back in 1989 and it worth every penny...Always find the solution when it breaked down: I've change the pump that gets the water in, change the water inlet valve...everything was fine until recently:
    it all started suddenly, for no reason, each time we were putting dishes into the dishwasher, as we open the door, the drain pump starts working...and stop as we closed the door. Few days later, same thing again, we open the door, drain pump started, but this time, it never stopped. we had to turn the power off as it wouldnt stop. plz help, thank you for your time

Further to my problem with my 19 year old ASKO ASEA D1502 Dishwasher .
I found a Use & Care Guide online at the ASKO site:
http://www.asko.com.au/downloads/manuals/
(It is an 8MB PDF, only 20 pages scanned)

The manual says flashing lights in the combo I had indicate heater fault.
Manual has good test procedure and I followed that and it showed that the Heater is OK.
Machine works through full cycle but flashes at the end.
It is an old machine so I suppose I just live with it unless anyone has any suggestions.

The bottom basket of my 16yr old ASKO 1253 has started to fall apart. The wires are breaking off. ASKO ceased carrying these 2yrs ago. They apparently have a 14yr backup policy. ASKO do recoat old baskets but the wires have to be in good condition. Does anyone know where I may be able to source another basket?

Indesit dishwasher idl40 s I have lights 1 and 3 flashing after shortly staring it's cycle. Then it empties and stops but there is no water hardly when I open the door. Any ideas please??


It would appear that the washer is not getting water, though it could be aborting the cycle early for some reason.

Try to google "Indesit dishwasher idl40s lights 1 & 3 flashing", and various permutations to see what others have said. At the least you need to understand what that pattern of lights flashing means.

There is an electric valve that the washer controls to allow it to fill with water when needed. This may be clogged or may have failed.

Pursue the flashing light issue first so you understand what the washer is complaining about.

Dishwasher asko 1895 the pump the working the lights are flashing but the machine is not working


The lights flashing is telling that there is a fault in the dishwasher.
I am assuming you have emptied the dishwasher after the drain cycle failed to work due to the pipe block.
You will have to make a fresh start. Empty the dishwasher, turn the power mains switch off and on to reset the dishwasher.
Start a new cycle and see if flashing lights stop flashing. If still same problem you will have to note which light(s) are flashing and send a post on this page. There is a chance the impeller in the drain pump may have sufferred some damage due to drain block depending on how long the motor operated before you found the problem with the drain.

Green start button won't stop blinking


START/RESET status indicator light flashing


You have pressed the indicator light flashing START/RESET pad while the START/RESET dishwasher is running. This will cancel the cycle. The light will stop flashing after the dishwasher drains (about 90 seconds).


Press the pad once to start the dishwasher. Press the pad a second time when the dishwasher is running only if you wish to cancel the cycle.


Power to the dishwasher was turned off while a cycle was running and power has just been restored to the dishwasher. The blinking lights indicate that the dishwasher is draining the potential water inside.


The light will stop flashing after the dishwasher drains. A new cycle will start automatically.


Good luck

Pl refer user manual. In general flashing light may mean : no water flow, salt chamber empty, door not closed etc. It all depends on the error code message designed.assigned by the manufacturer.

User Manual of Asea Cylinda 1200 Dishwasher


One of these was in my house when I moved in, still have the manual. Very efficient dishwasher.
A is a prewash (machine will stop after it). Manual says it's meant to rinse stuff while you wait until you've filled the machine to run a full wash.
D is economy wash. Water is heated according to the switch you select on the front.
C is a prewash that will continue on to D (normal cycle). Water is at incoming temp.
B is another prewash that will continue on the C etc (heavy cycle). Like C, water is at incoming temp.
E is dry cycle. Heating element is on/off depending on switch on the front (dunno why you'd turn it off..)
While turning the dial, push it in and it will stop exactly at the start of theach cycle.
Mine has stopped emptying, think the pump has died, looking for a replacement..
