Question about Asko Washing Machines
Hello, welcome to Fixya.
The "F4" code on those Asko washer`s indicates a fault has been detected with the thermistor.
This of course does not mean the thermistor is indeed faulty, it may have just become loose from the bottom of the tub.
Here`s what to look for and what it does...
Part no. : 80 616 63
Resistance: 40-60K ohms
Room temperature: 68°–86° F (20–30° C)
The thermistor ( for temperature measurement ) is
located between the motor cradle and the holder.
The thermistor measures and controls the water temperature via a heating element. In the event of errors the heater is switched out if the thermistor short-circuits or is disconnected from the program control board or programmer.
**unplug the unit from the dryer or wall whichever applies to your situation...safety first**
If you are capable remove the rear panel and top panel to ohm out the thermistor to varify if it is within` the values I provided...or perhaps it has dislodged from it`s position...though that is unlikely, it could happen.
In the event you need a thermistor and you feel you can replace it yourself I`ll show you how...I do recommend calling in an authorized Asko service provider.
CHANGING THE THERMISTOR
1. Remove the top cover
2. Remove the rear panel
3. Remove the thermistor by pulling it out to the left.
4. Remove the thermistor header connector from the program control board.
5. Install the new thermistor by threading it through the hole between the cradle and holder.
6. Connect the thermistor to the program control board.
7. Replace the rear panel.
8. Replace the top cover. (Don't forget the two
star washers for the outer screws.)
Hope this helps move you forward or at least gives you an idea of what needs to be looked at.
Let me know if you require further assistance. Thanks for choosing FixYa today.
