Question about Asko W6021 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

ASKO W640 washer - water fault outlet. I've had this numerous times before when teenage has left coins in his pockets. I get the shop vac and pump out the water via via the pin trap and out come the coins too. Once I could feel the "coin" in the outlet but couldn't get it out as it was a token from the broadwalk and was the exact size of the outlet. Had to call the plumber. Please, how do I get this new problem fixed without calling the plumber?

This is a common problem and there are few causes for the same.

First of all, you need to unplug the machine, remove the back panel ( 8 or so hex screws ) and locate the point where the drainage hose meets the water draining pump ( for this you need to remove the front panel below the pin trap - attached by 2 torq screws . The hose is just pulled off the pump with clamp attached.Check for coins and lint. Then, re - attach the hose with clamp remaining in place ).

If you do not find anything, more often that would indicate a hardware failure. Then, you need to have a multimeter and check the DC voltage at the water pump wiring as Faulty PUMP is most of the common problems on this model. Other than this it could be a case of faulty overflow sensor or water control valve is stuck. The last two are not usually home handy man repair.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

    Thanks for your response!!

    It's a long back when i worked on this unit. Tilt the unit a bit and you would find a couple of screws.There are few diagnostics we well. You could keep the below link :-

    You could only view the tech sheet. However, for the time being tilt the unit and you would see 2 screws. Regarding size of torx, i need to pull up my database.However, at least find the screws and in the mean while i would try to pull out the torx size.

    Let me know,the update.

    Hope i helped you.

Asko W6021 would not fill with water

Our W6021 front has had a couple of instances where it would not start the fill cycle as usual. Normally it would be switched on,the relay would operate and the water would begin to enter the bowl. We tried a number of things including checking the hose and inlet filter for blockage. We then checked the outlet drain pump trap and found a coin and a drill bit lodged in the entry hole to the trap. Once the foreign objects were removed ,the machine operated as normal once again. I will be very careful in future to empty my pockets of metal things.

F21 is flashing on the machine and there is still water in the machine

either the pump is clogged with coins and other stuff or the pump is bad and needs to be replaced.with a shop vac and you're gonna need one vac out all the water in the tub.then remove the bottom'll see the pump and in the middle of it you can unscrew the catch piece or cap but first put down some towels to catch water,turn the cap to the left or counter clock wise slowly and vac up the water as it comes out,do this until no more water leaks out,then remove the cap,clean it out,stick your finger inside the pump and you'll feel the impellar,make sure nothing is stuck in there,also there's a rubber hose on the other side of the pump,stick the vac in the pump and move the hose around in case something is in there it will get vacked out.put the pump back together,you can throw a gallon of water in the tub or fill it with a little water and put it on drain and spin,if the water drains out you're all set,if not change out the pump.part number 280187 and it's around 120 dollars,most of the time the pump doesn't have to be changed out it just needs to be cleaned out,clean out all pockets on clothing from now on

Water outlet fault. The door wouldn't open, so I drained the unit and then the door opened. I cleaned some coins out of filter and tried again. Same fault, water outlet fault.

Hello and welcome to Fixya. With the Asko washer it is possible to have some coins and debris up in the hose which goes from the tub to the pump as well as downstream of the pump in the drain hose, it is a pretty small diameter and quarters, nickles, dimes and pennies can block it up entirely. It will require a very thorough check. You may in fact have a damaged pump as well. If you watch the pump impeller it should spin freely, if it just sits there with the impeller moving slightly back and forth it is faulty. In any event you'll need to either phone in a pro or remove the pump and hoses ( which are held by one-time clamps ) which will require installing new hose clamps and removing the lower service/access panel. Depending on the actual model of Asko washer you have the process of doing this will vary. Let me know how you make out or if you require further assistance. Thanks for visitng fixya, please rate this info accordingly or please let me know how I can help additionally. Good luck. Macmarkus :)

The washing machine stopped on the rinse (6) with an F-3. Now what do I do?


"F3" on Asko means the machine detected an interuption in the drain sequence. could be as simple as a coin or some other debris causing the fault, but it may be the pump is faulty as well. first things first.

**UNPLUG the unit from the dryer, or from the wall, which ever applies to your set-up**

in the lower left corner on the front of your washer is a "pin catcher/lint filter" for the pump (a pump insert asko calls it). unscrew this insert, clean out whatever is obstructing the pump and you should be fine to continue. unless the pump itself is at fault. **you will need to drain whatever water is in the unit into a drain, or pan thru the little drain line from the pump (refer to your manual if you have access to it).

hope that helps,

good luck

Asko w640 has a water inlet fault

Check the drain line to make sure the water does not siphon out as it enters the machine.

Asko W640 water outlet fault

If you get the water fault after checking the lower drain, you may need to remove the drain hose in the back. Usually there is a dime in the hose or the hard part right before the hose.

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.

W640 - Water Outlet Fault

I solved this problem this morning, after several months with intermittent "water outlet fault" error messages.

Our pin trap was cleared many times over the months. The propellor turned freely. However, the problem persisted.
So I unplugged the machine, removed the back panel (8 or so hex screws) and located the point where the drainage hose meets the water draining pump. I then separated the hose from the pump and found 2 United States 10-cent pieces lodged together with gunk that effectively blocked the drainage hose. 10-cent pieces ("dimes") are the perfect diameter to get stuck there and not appear in the pin trap where you could easily see and remove them.

Three loads later, the machine is working according to spec. Hope this helps.
