Hi,
Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description and provided the dishwasher is indeed filling with water, draining, heating, but not circulating, It sounds like a busted wash impeller within the main motor/circulation pump.

First though, do you hear a quiet sound of a motor starting once the unit has completed filling with water ?

( it will be super quiet if the wash impeller is broke as I suspect it may be...almost like a fountain, since the Viking...built by "Asko"...are very quiet under normal conditions. You will have to either get right down with your ear to the bottom or run it with the door open by activating the door switch with a screw-driver )


If so that is a tell tale of no wash action yet the motor runs, hence broken impeller. If you don't hear anything it may be a wire come off the main motor/circulation pump...but not likely.

This unfortunately is common with Asko built dishwasher`s and it is a case of being a victim of their own design.

What happens typically is the ball-bearings from the upper rack holders ( which are plastic which fatigues due to heat and fall apart ) fall out making their way into the sump, hence breaking the wash impeller from the motor.

Let me know what you find and I'll try and help you move forward from there.

Good luck,

Macmarkus :)

My dishwasher is not draining


ists not draining.. meaning you dont hear the drain pump kick in? or if you do hear pump kick in, have you checked the hose to the drain..? it could be blocked with a build up of food over the use of dishwasher.
that happened to mine last month. it would fill, but seemd not to drain.. until i disassembled the dishwasher drain from the sink connection and saw at sink connection it wss blocked.. its an easy fix.. unscrew the clamp on drain hose and pull apart and push food back into the drain to wash it away.. good luck !!

Sounds like you need a professional to diagnose the unit for repairs. You are either having a timer issue or a control board communication error.

Why doesn't my Fisher Pakel dishwasher drawer not clean the dishes anymore?


see the causes and fix it : God bless you
No water Entering Dishwasher

Check to make sure water is entering the dishwasher do this by starting a wash cycle wait for it to fill and start washing then open door. If there is no water you will need to check the water inlet valve and the float switch. This video will walk you through checking both out. Click on links to see a photo tutorial of replacing those parts.

Low Water level

This is another common problem. To check that you have the proper water level you will need to turn dishwasher to a wash cycle wait for it to fill, when it starts washing stop and open the door. Now refer to the tech sheet or service manual for the proper water leve. They usually refer to a fixed point in the dishwasher or to a specific measurement. This ensures that your dishwasher has enough water to wassh properly. If your water level is low you will need to check the water inlet valve and the float switch. The video will walk you thru inspecting and testing these components. The links will lead you thru a photo tutorial on replacing these parts.

Wash Arms

First check to see if they are moving. To do this start dishwasher into a wash cycle wait for it to fill and start washing open door and rotate wash arms to a certain position remeber this position then close the door let run for a few seconds and open door. If they are not moving check to see if they turn freely if not replace. Next remove the spray arms and check for clogged holes. If all looks clear you will need to check that the circulating pump is not clogged up or has failed.

Drain Problem

This is one of the most common reasons. To check open door after a cycle and check to see if any water is standing inside. If there is you have a drain issue. Could be the high loop or air gap is not correct. The drain may have a clog. The drain pump may have failed. The drain pump can be checked for the proper ohm reading (refer to tech sheet). If it is out of specification replace the pump. Check to see if the drain pump is getting power. If the drain pump is getting power but not running you will need to replace. If it is running but still leaving water behind you will need to remove the drain pump and check/replace for obstructions.

Control

This is the least likely cause.Check to make sure it goes to each cycle for the proper amount of time. The main control or Timer has a pre determined amount of time programmed into it. This determines how much time to spend at each cycle. The time is usually printed on the tech sheet. The tech sheet is located somewhere on your dishwasher. It could be behind the front panel,behind the console, behind the toe kick, somewhere on the sides. If it does not stay at each cycle for the proper lenght of time you will need to replace the control.

Wont do drain cycle,goes back to wash cycle


check the drain hose and the kitchen sink drain outlet are clear.
It is possible the soil sensor is faulty and is drawing more water thinking the dishes are still dirty. Check if you hear the drain pump operate briefly during wash cycle.

Confirm 120V across the water valve terminals in a couple of minutes into a wash or rinse cycle. (when you turn it on at the beginning of the wash cycle it will drain first, and then will energize the water valve to fill up.)
If there is 120V across the terminals - it may have:
  1. faulty solenoid coil - check for continuity, replace valve if none
  2. clogged filter or nozzle inside the valve. Try cleaning the filter, replace valve if it didn't help

Hello Ramona Doug,
Try disconnecting power from your dishwasher for a few minutes to clear the memory and then reapply power again. Start a wash cycle without dishes on the hottest water setting and after a few minutes.. pause the wash and add a few cups of white vinegar to the wash water.,. that will help break up deposits in the system.. See if that gets you going properly.
