Hi,

Below are instructions for removing water from your dishwasher’s base pan:

Tools needed: TORX 20 screwdriver (NOTE: Make sure it is SHORT !! 3in.)

-Turn off power to unit at circuit breaker
-Remove the 2 screws on the face of the toe kick and slide the toe kick away from the machine.
-Remove the 2 screws from under the left and right bottom corners of the access panel. The access panel should pull straight down. If it doesn’t, there may be two more screws at the top of that panel that need to be removed.
-Now, remove the 4 screws from the galvanized guard plate. There will be 2 on the face in the upper left and right corners and 2 pointing up under the door on the left and right side. Now pull the galvanized panel out.
-You should see a row of parts such as wires and circuit board. Place your hands directly under these parts and you should feel water in the base pan.
-If there is water, please remove with a sponge or a turkey baster and then hold down the start/stop button for 5 seconds to reset the unit. (NOTE: While this area seems small I removed around 500ml of water !! Also small hands help).

Good Luck!!

Thanks!!

Asko 1375 will not fill completely


It needs to have the correct fittings you can call around and see if you can get a generic one that had the same threading for your reducer however it doesn't sound like a bad valve I think its the float switch that is bad

Dishwasher not filling


The water float switch, located on the inside bottom of the machine, may be stuck in the up(off) position keeping the water valve from functioning. This is a safety device that turns the water valve off when the machine fills in order to keep it from overflowing.

The water inlet solenoid mounted on the inlet valve under the bottom front may also be malfunctioning not allowing the water valve to open and fill the machine. If electricity is present at the solenoid terminals when the machine is in fill cycle, then check the solenoid coil to see if it is open(no continuity). Also, the timer may not be calling for water/ sending voltage to the inlet valve solenoid.

I would start by manually operating the water float valve a few time to see if that helps. You should hear a microswitch click each time the valve stem is moved up or down by the float. If not, check to see if voltage is getting to the float switch and the water inlet valve solenoid.

Most(if not all) machines have a safety cutoff switch which activates when the door is opened. That switch could also be malfunctioning not allowing voltage to the water inlet valve solenoid in fill cycle.

Asko dishwasher 1875. Saying F2 fault. Reset doesnt fix. Water slowly running in constantly even when switched off. Pump runs if left on but if turned off it floods. any ideas?


Just wrote you a massive explanation then closed my window by accident. Lets try again!

From what you say, with water running even when powered off, this is certainly a mechanical failure of the water inlet valve. There will only be a couple of possible causes for this:

1) The valve is being jammed open by an obstruction, possibly grit in the water supply (did you have plumbing work done recently or work on the water supply in the street? This would be a classic cause). If an obstruction is the case then repeatedly starting a fill cycle, draining and satrting the fill again MAY shift the blockage.

2) There is a failure of the valve its self. Essentially it's just a valve with rubber seals operated by a small electro magnet and sometimes the seals fail (often as a result of a poor water supply allowing grit into the rubbers).

If the information at (1) above doesn't help, you may have to replace the valve (Though in examining it when you come to take it out, you may be able to locate and remove an obstruction).

To help you out there is a parts manual for your machine available in PDF here:

http://www.greatplainsapplianceparts.com/order/Parts%20Manuals/Asko/ASKO-Dishwasher/D3112%20(DW20.1)%20SS.pdf

Looks like the diagram on page 2 shows that you need part 135, although it seems to me that the author of the manual has got part 135 (Part No. 8073774 Cord Set) mixed up with part 140 ( Part No. 8073825 Inl. Valve Single 120V Sens.).

I imagine that if you go to the ASKO website and use the contact us option:
http://www.askousa.com/customer-care/contact-us/
They should be able to clear that up for you

Hope this all helps

D1876 Asko dishwasher doesn't fill. It runs fine if I manually fill the unit with a couple of pitchers of water. Likely culprits seem to be a faulty water level sensor or water fill valve. Any...


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description and provided the dishwasher is indeed 1) an Asko D1876 and 2) not filling with water...It sounds like a faulty fill valve/water valve unfortunately.

First though, you can perform a diagnostic/fault trace program by following the steps below. You should hear the valve starting once the unit has started filling with water.


You'll need to be familiar with the control layout for the test to begin. This is how the buttons/display is identified in the diagnostic...

Now you can enter the fault trace by way of the following sequence....

macmarkus_288.jpg


Obviously based on the instructions if you push S3 the valve should open and allow water into the tub, this image below indicates the normal water level to look for when filling in the normal cycle NOT FAULT TRACING...Fault trace will fill until you stop it.

macmarkus_289.jpg


This unfortunately is common with Asko built dishwasher`s, but it can be fairly easily repaired with a little direction/know-how.

**First turn off the water and the power to the dishwasher...safety first**


You should only need to remove the toe panel/kick plate at the bottom and of course turn your water and power off, undo the water line at the valve,

i.e.

macmarkus_290.jpg



...remove the two torx screws ( large arrow ) and then the delivery hose at the back of the valve ( small arrow ) and install the new one.

The new valve is part # 8801351 and available at on-line parts depot "repairclinic.com" for about $170USD last time I looked.

Let me know what you find and I'll try and help you move forward from there...you may opt to call in a pro but that's up to you.

I'll watch for your reply.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Dishwasher begins to fill then stops with no further progress.


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on hoe you`ve described the issue with your Asko, initially it sounds like a faulty inlet/water fill valve...

But, I`d like to clarify the symptom first. Does the unit complete the fill cycle and then do nothing, or it just energizes the fill momentarily then does nothing ?

Also I will ask to verify the model is an Asko 1375 ?

I`l watch for your reply.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

I have an asko dishwasher that doesn't fill enough


two things either a clogged inlet water valve located at the bottom of the machine where the water hooks up to the dishwasher, there is a filter screen in the body of the valve, need to take valve off to access where the screen is. Second, could be a bad water level switch, but I would suspect the screen first this is most of the time, the problem

Hope this helped

Asko D3530 water inlet fault code, water valve is on, water comes in but after water comes in for a couple of minutes we get a (inlet water fault code) check power at circulating pump no 120v unit will not...


Hello,

It is common for these valves to "appear" to be ok, meaning they begin to allow water into the unit, but then one of the two coils or plungers inside fail, or are clogged with mineral deposit from the water or other debris.

Change the valve and you should be fine. part #1164471, you can find it at select parts depots or on-line retailers like repairclinic.com etc.

** Hire a pro or make sure to use a good replacement clamp on the fill line to the tub when you replace the valve, as well as some plumbers puddy/tape on the inlet fitting. Those little buggers have alot of water pressure going thru them when they open and I've seen them come off or leak due to insufficient fastening/loose clamps, then your machine goes into "flood mode".**

Asko seems to be repeating their past. On the earlier DW95 series (mid 90's to around 2000ish) they had a dual valve inlet which had a single valve rework issued to repair the faulty dual valves, now it looks like they're doing it again. Go figure.

Hope that helps, let me know.

Good Luck :)

ASKO 1385 not filling after overfill protection was turned on


If when turned on the dishwasher sounds like it is running the drain pump, and does this in any cycle setting, it is possible that the drain pan below the unit has filled with water. Check this post for more details.

Asko D1716 dishwasher problem


I also have an Asko D1716 dishwasher. The water stopped flowing. I replaced the water inlet valve and I have another problem, but the replacement of the fill valve is now letting in water. You can call Asko at 1-800-898-1879 to order the parts. If you order from Asko, I'm told you have some warranty on the parts. Anyway, the screws take a star drive and there is a front plate and back plate you will need to remove. There are approx. 4 screws on the front and 4 screws on the back. Just remember to unplug it before starting any work. The fill valve is in front of the machine. There are 2 screws holding it in place from the front. You will need to remove it out the back though to replace it since the fill tube to the tub is short and it wont allow you to pull it out the front. The repair is really easy once you get started.

Hope this helps,
