    where is the thermostat located on this model, as I can only see a 8061664 Cylinder pressure sensor beside the pressure switch, I cannot see a thermostat! Robert

    Thank you for your second reply I appreciate that, however I have now found the fault myself, it was a dry solder joint on the PC board, once I had removed the PC and turned it up side down for inspection.I noticed some black carbon at a solder point and the wire poking through was dry connected , but earlier today before finding that fault I went to Asko spares and bought a pressure switch in desperation as recommended by a mechanic friend of mine however the fault was still there after fitting the new pressure switch. I also tested the front thermo switch by bridging the two wires together but the machine still wouldn't heat, I also learnt that the heater kicks in quite a few minutes after the machine first starts washing maybe 4 or 5 minutes at a guess. How ever I do appreciate you trying to help me, all except that nobody has told me where I can get the service manual and how much, this was in my first part of my first question, a reply on that would be great, I'm hoping that you or a staff member can advise me as requested, Cheers and thanks again. . Robert.

Hi.

The thermistor is located near to the heating element(pt.40) and motor(pt.6). The thermistor/holder assembly is part 31/31in picture below:

how much for the repair manual and trouble - d0233ee.gif

To get the full part manual click here. The assembly is at pages 4/5.

Here the part.

To test the thermistor remove it from circuit and read Ohms at its terminals. If the thermistor is good it must read zero or very low impedance. If it reads open, then it is broken.

If this solution was helpful, then please do not forget to accept the solution. Your feedback is important to us.

Regards.

The thermostat measures the temperature of the incoming water. If it's too cold, the programmer switches on the heating element.When the water is hot enough, the programmer makes the drum rotate back and forth, sloshing the clothes through the soapy water.If the heater/heating element is the washing machine is good.Then also check it with meter.If you have already replaced the heating element then the element is god,But this element is controlled by the thermostat.Check the thermostat with meter to confirm the fault. A washing machine fills with water, heats it up to the right temperature, and then when the thremostat tells the programme timer that the right temperature is reached the programme timer moves on to start rinsing and spinning. To test if a element is working or not connect a ohmmeters live and neutral wires to the corresponding connectors on the element and check for a positive reading, no reading would mean a faulty element, also use the ohmmeter to read across both terminals again and the earth terminal on the element but in this case a positive reading would mean a faulty element and a negative reading would mean no fault on the earth to live and earth to neutral connectors. if the heater is faulty, or the thermostat, or the programme timer is faulty, then the washing machine will stick on wash. It will either boil the water and heat for ever, or it will wash for ever, waiting for a signal from the thermostat that never comes.If it takes much longer than normal, the main suspect is that it's taking a long time to heat the water but it is still heating it. This could be caused if the machine is taking too much water in on wash (check the water level on wash looks normal). If you suspect the heating element could be causing the slow wash times, try pouring some hot water into the soap dispenser drawer while it is initially filling up. If this significantly reduces the wash time it could indicate that it is slow due to taking a long time to heat the water. This will help to confirm the fault.

The wash cycles are taking very long


Sounds like you have a heater problem. Program 5 should take around an hour and 6 should be around 30 min, both with the heater on according to asko's manual. So I would get the heater element checked.

My Asea 1502 Dishwasher gets most of the way through a cycle then stops with lights flashing. It is empty of water. What is the problem?


Further to my problem with my 19 year old ASKO ASEA D1502 Dishwasher .
I found a Use & Care Guide online at the ASKO site:
http://www.asko.com.au/downloads/manuals/
(It is an 8MB PDF, only 20 pages scanned)

The manual says flashing lights in the combo I had indicate heater fault.
Manual has good test procedure and I followed that and it showed that the Heater is OK.
Machine works through full cycle but flashes at the end.
It is an old machine so I suppose I just live with it unless anyone has any suggestions.
