Question about Asko 1385 Dishwasher

1 Answer

Water pumps into the bottom of the dw but the spray arm doesn't rotate and spray. It also empties, so the problem seems to be with the spray arm. Any solutions?

Hi I have had this intake/drain light come on in my Miele G851 SC dishwasher. I followed the recommended instructions in the manual: - clean triple filter, drain pump, and non return valve - check...


Is their debris in air gap or in the bottom of the DW, where the drain is screened? Look for obstructions.

1. The air gap is usually located on top of the sink. Lift off the pretty cover, and unscrew the top cap nut. Is there rice and debris there? Remove it then. Reassemble and check it out.
2. The DW drains to the bottom of the unit where the pump is. This area is screened off so that the pump doesn't get clogging debris in it. is their leaf lettuce and stuff covering this? Remove that debris. Some times this area can only be accessed by removing the bottom spinning spray head. It comes off with a nut, possibly this nut is reverse thread. Reassemble when done looking for debris.
3. Is the drain line between the DW pump (located under the DW) and the waste pipe kinked? This line is a plastic corrugated line about 7/8" around the outside. It is a pumped waste and won't work if it is kinked, so unkink it.
4. Is the float stuck. This is a device on the bottom of your DW that tells the DW how much water is in the bottom of the DW basin. It looks like a mushroom. Gently move it up and down. Does it move freely or is it stuck? Unstick it.

Good luck.

Frigidaire Model FDB780RCB0 I am getting water in the machine but it seems the arms are not turning what can I do to get that fixed?


The pump in the dishwasher is supposed to provide enough water pressure to turn the spray arms and make them rotate. The pump is faulty and not giving enough pressure or the arms are stuck.
Try spinning the arms, if they rotate smoothly, you will need to replace the pump.

I have a KitchenAid KUDSEWH2 dishwasher that is not allowing the water to spray onto the dishes. It comes into the DW through the fill part but does not spray upwards into the racks


Either your motor or capacitor are bad, or the chopper screen inside the pump is plugged, which can mean the chopper is broken. Remove the lower spray arm, the screws on pump cover, the cover, then screws inside pump that hold chopper cover. If screen isn't plugged the motor or capacitor are bad.

My mother-in-law called and her dishwasher is making a loud noise when the motor runs. sounds like a bad bearing somewhere? the noise stops when it drains (motor not running?). does that sound like the...


There is only one motor -- it runs a water pump for recirculating the water when it's washing and runs a water pump when it's draining.

It sounds like the spray arm is making the noise -- this is the part thru which the motor / pump forces the water during the wash cycle -- the pumped water causes the arm to rotate -- a warn or loose spray arm or mount is likely the problem.

Or, it could be just some utensil stuck in the bottom of the dishwasher which the spray arm is rubbing.

More info, let me know.

Try rotating the spray arms by hand. It should rotate freely. If possible clean the arm rotating place by removing them.

Arms rotate by by pump pressure only. finally check the water pump also.

Dishes not getting clean, left with gritty residue. Could the filter be backed; if so how do I fix it?


Had the same problem with a GE Nautilus 3400 series.
Solution:

- In their manual, GE recommends not stacking tall dishes on the bottom right tray - this prevents the dishwashing powder from fully dissolving. Are you using the right detergent and rinse-agent ?

If your upper arm is not turning during wash (DW leaves residue on top-shelf items), do the following:

1) Empty the DW.

2) Pull down the rotating arm on the DW ceiling. Thoroughly clean the passageways (I had to tap it on the counter to break-down the sediments).

3) Inspect the mesh-screen filter located on the floor in the back - if it's backed up (ours was backed-up from the inside), you'll need to clean it by removing 4, 1/4" screws holding it to the DW floor and throughly cleaning it (I also unscrewed the plastic valve located on the bottom of the filter compartment). While you're at it, remove the plastic mesh on the DW floor (2 screws) and fish for any objects and sediments blocking the pump.

4) Replace filter and bottom mesh and operate the DW in "Rinse" mode.

5) Press the rotating arm back in and operate the DW in "Rinse" mode. Check rotation.

- Good Luck !

Bottom rotating arm doesnt spray water but top arm does


i have a similar problem. water is not reaching the bottom spray arm. there. i have an underwater case for my digital camera, so i'm going to put a torch or 2 in some waterproof bags and remove the bottom spray arm and run the dishwasher to see if there's water coming out of the bottom pipe, if not, i need to try and see if there's a blockage in the system, or a dodgy valve, could be that the soldering's or the control panel's buggered.

Water not spraying hard enough


Could be a a couple different issues.. Not filling with enough water or food chopper broke or food chopper filter screen clogged.

Check water level:
Run the DW and wait for the main wash to start (water will fill. pause then complete fill) The water should be no more than 1/4 inch below the heating element. If not there..replace water inlet valve.

Inspect food chopper:
Remove lower spray arm and rear water supply tube to upper spray arm. Remove torx screws that secure the sump cover. Remove the rounded cover on the left side to expose the chopper assembly. Inspect for breakage of blockage. There may be an additional plastic screen to remove first.

Water not going through spray arms


1.does motor run? no. replace motor. 2.open door and leave the bottom rack inside dw.spin the spray arm underneath the bottom rack by hand. it should spin freely without binding. if it doesnt spin freely take out the bottom rack and try again. if it does spin freely then your bottom rack is laying on your sprayarm preventing it from rotating. 3.you could also not be getting enough water into your dw.
