Hi, welcome to FixYa. If you look directly under the dial, below the rim of the front panel, there should be a lock button. Asko has this safety built in to prevent temp. Change after starting a wash. It is likely in the lock position. This is so once you set the temp. It won't accidently get changed during the cycle. Push it in and turn to lock it, turn and release should "unlock" it. You can also leave it locked by simply pushing it in long enough to turn the temp dial. Hope that helps, let me know how you do or if my explaination isn't clear. Thanks for choosing FixYa, please take a second to rate this solution. Good luck. macmarkus :)

Ciruit board asko w6221 washer

Not normally. Most manufacturers supply boards complete and ready to go in to replace a dud. Unless you know an electronics whiz who can identify what component(s) have failed, you are probably better off and reliability wise, to get a replacement board.

Machine wont drain and the door wont open

The solution worked thank you, drained machine and cleaned out trap as per chapter 10 of user manual and all working fine now. Note: ensure to check up the inlet line in the trap with your finger as there could be some items in there, also check fan/prop to ensure it turns freely. Was amazed of what I found in the trap see picture below, pays to check pockets prior to washing.

Asko w6221 front load washer stops after wash cycle

Do all of your cycles work when you turn them manually? If one cycle does not work when you turn the dial on it then it will be your timer (The dial assembly $100-up) If all your cycles work manually, then it could be your timer motor which is attached to your timer assembly. If you turn the dial pass the wash, on to the rinse, does the dial automaticly move (when finishng the rinse cycle)to the spin cycle? If so then your timer motor is ok. The only wires close to the bottom are the motor, but these should be high enough out of the way.

Machine drains and dial turns directly to S after filling with water.

moe thasn likly you have a pressure switch that is either telling the machine its too full and making it drain or its not seeing the switch and so it drains. Another possibility ids the machine is leaking. Pull the lower cover off and make sure there is no water in the bottom. These askos have a float switch down there that will run the drain if the sense water leaking into the lower tray. Last but not least, you could have a bad timer. these timers are covered for 5 years (parts only) from date of installation. The first 4 digits of the serial # will tell yuo when the machine was made the firts 2 are the year and the second 2 are the week of that year (so a serial beginning in 0145 woul;d mean built in the 45th week of 2001 and so on. Good luck!
