Am getting an F3 message. Have opened the little door at the bottom of the machine and removed two hairclips and two $1 coins (yep, teenager). Then I put it on to wash again and got the F3 message again. I checked the filter again, but there was nothing there.

Re: Asko W6431 Quattro front loader
Unplug the machine. Remove the filter, take a flashlight and get your head down to check if something has fallen deeper in filter and pump housing which block the pump turbine. Also, make sure to check if the outlet hose isn't clogged or jammed with something too.

F3 indicates a problem with the drain pump.
At the bottom left of the machine, theres a square cut-out. This is where the drain pump is located. Using a flat head screwdriver or similar object, insert in opening on right side and gently pry open the drain pump cover.
Once the cover has been opened, be careful when opening the drain pump, as there is always a little water left in the drain pump. Before you open the drain pump, place a small container on the floor below the drain to catch the water. Pull the small black hose from the door and let the water drain into the container. You can now open the drain pump to clean it out. Also clean the pump rotor at the back of the pump housing. Replace the drain cover and reconnect the drain hose securely back to its position on the door. Close the cover.
F4 indicates a problem with the water inlet valve.
Make sure the water supply is fully turned on. If no water enters the machine, then turn water supply off. Disconnect the hoses from the water inlet valve to see if the strainer in the inlet connection is blocked. Reconnect the hoses and turn on water supply. Hopefully this solves your problem.
Welcome to FixYa.
Have you checked the pump to insure the filter isn't clogged, or do you know where it is and how to check it ?
If its clogged it won't allow the clothes to spin out enough due to water extraction being prevented.
The insert/filter is located on most Asko washer below the main basket door behind a toe panel or square access door. Once found, turn it counter-clockwise to remove it and clean inside thoroughly.
Let me know how you do or if you don't understand or even needing more assistance.
Thanks for choosing Fixya and good luck.
Further on to this F3 problem I had the issue on model W6461. There is a short cut to the fix, instead of taking off the grey pipe from the drain pump (the hose clips are pre crimped in the factory so as stated above are difficult to remove) try this.
Stages as follows:
1) Open drain pump door (bottom left of machine).
2) Remove black pipe and drain residual water.
3) Unscrew coin trap and remove, use a container to hold the water.
4) Leave the container underneath and make sure you have some towels ready (I didn't at the time)
5) Where the washing machine drain hose connects to the outlet or U bend connector remove this and expose the end.
6) Blow into the drain hose as hard as possible......hopefully the blockage will clear through back the coin trap.
A large lump of sludge, three of my 5 year olds small counter coins and about a litre of water.
open the little door at the bottom or remove the toe panel... then there is a coin trap... that will let you remove the water there is a black hose with a plug on the end remove plug and drain the water...by turning it and pulling it you can remove the coin trap and you my be able to remove somthing stuck in it... also there is a red string you can pull it and release the door
Hope it helps if NOT let me know more about your problem... and I will help
