Question about Asko Washing Machines
Welcome to FixYa.
To answer your question, "i am trying to open the drain plug to check for buttons etc but cant get it to unlock. is there a trick to it? No not really. Just unscrew it counter clockwise,
The issue with these Asko pump insets/filters....
they can become clogged with items such as coins, hair-pins etc. that can actually damage the part.
Unfortunately once they are clogged to a degree removing the filter by normal means becomes difficult or impossible without breaking it.
The image I attached above is an example of a pump I had to remove and disassemble to clean it out so the filter could be removed/unscrewed, hence the need for the "worm-gear" clamps had to be used to replace the original "one-time" clamps. That though involves removing the access panel...
plus the tub bellows and drain hoses etc. pretty involved.
If you indeed break this part during your attempts to remove it, a replacement is available, Asko original part # 88 010 69 and available at on-line retailer "repairclinic.com" for about $25-$30USD.
Let me know how you make out or if you require further assistance.
Thank you for choosing FixYa and good luck.
