    Thank you - I had to turn off at the switch board as machine is completely built in a screwed to frame to stop it tilting forward (with the house). When first turned back on the same lights were on, but as soon as an option was selected returned to normal programming! Cheers!

    My asko Dishwasher all lights are flashing. It won't stop running. It only turns off from the breaker but will start running again when breaker turned on.

Had similar problem with my ASKO 1875 Dishwasher i.e. F2 lights all flashing together and a failure to pump out fully during the "pump out" phases of operation. (Bought machine new in January 2000 and the problem first occurred about 9 years later.) Sometimes the F2 flashing occurred after the main wash, and the machine would "self correct" after a short period and continue through the cycle normally, whilst at other times, the F2 flashing occurred at the end of the entire wash cycle and didn't self-correct. Solved the problem by putting citric acid (powdered form, used in baking, available from supermarkets), about 40g, in detergent dispenser and nearby, and running the machine through a cycle, either "normal" or "quick", while empty of plates etc. Actually did this twice, to make sure. I suspect a float / water level detector gets "gunked up" with washing/alkaline salts over time (my plates go in fairly clean, and I don't wash pots and pans in the DW), so the citric acid is needed to clean this off. (We don't have hard water where we live.) The first time I used this solution, the DW worked fine for the next 9 months, and I have just needed to re-run the machine with citric acid as the problem occurred again. Think it's probably best to do it every 6 months, as a preventative measure. Other people might have the F2 problem, when their pumps get blocked, but in my case, the citric acid has solved the problem twice.

OK, just had the same problem wit my dishwasher, ASKO 1875, ,,,,,, Firstly, open the door and remove the tilt screws that secure it from tilting, top left and right corners at the front , pull the dishwasher out from under the bench enough so you can get to the back of the unit. Take care with the power cord [ should be turned off at the wall] . At the fear there is a panel at the bottom held on with 4 selftapping screws, remove these and ease panel away from the machine enough so you can see inside. Now you are likely to see alot of water sitting in the bottom tray, [ l did on mine } This exess water activates a small float under the pump which in my case caused the problem. Sponge the exess water out into a bucket, there will be quite a lot. Once dry try turning your dishwasher back on and hey presto the lights on the controll panel should be back to normal. Turn power off again, replace bottom panel to the back of the machine. Reinstall back under the bench, not forgetting to replace the tilt screws and all should work well....... Hope this helps. If still a problem you may have to dig into your wallet and call a serviceman. P.S. If you dont want to remove the back panel and sponge the water out, you can just tilt the dishwasher over to drain the water but this will cause abit of a mess {water } on the floor, but it is alot faster. Good luck.

She68t52uc flashing light which says E:15 and watertap


Not sure if this will definitely work, but i do believe this is a flood safety device. Try removing the drain pipe from the waste pipe, into a bucket or bowl, and empty as much water out as you can, then, with the pipe on the floor (will get wet), tip the top of the dishwasher backwards about 45 degrees, and hold for a few seconds. It may be that water/suds are still in the bottom of the machine, or the dishwasher detected this.

Adg 3962 IX showing fault code f2 with flashing


The machine has a switch inside that activates when a set amount of water is loaded.
If this switch then breaks (switches off) during the wash the machine assumes that the water has leaked out.
Run it through a couple of washes, check for a leak and see how it goes.
Hopefully it will be fine.
F2 indicates a flooded base.

Press and hold the start button until the start light goes out. (This resets the appliance)
Select a new programme and try the machine again.

If it comes up with a fault F2, take the panel off below the door and check for water in the base.
Be careful when you take the panel off, the exposed edges are razor sharp.
Drain any water in the base, reset and try the machine again and watch for a leak through the inspection panel.

Asko d1876


I'm not sure about that model, but on an older one, just under the drain area there is a piece os styrofoam attached to a switch. I guess if it rises it activates the circuit. Problem is if it drys it sticks, so push it down with your hand gently. This involves taking off that bottom kickplate area, but that's the only way in there.

F2 FAULT AND ALL LIGHTS ARE FLASHING.


f2 means water in the flood pan remove dishwasher from under bench and tip back the water will run onto the floor.then test the dishwasher while it is still out you can remove the rear panel were the hoses go through and check the drain hose for leaks also check the white plastic ring under the metal filter for cracks,they look like a dark line.as far as the dispenser the most common cause is the main board,remove door skin and control panel and check the back of the board for damaged tracks,you will also have to replace the wax motor(red) on the drying fan(if fitted)check the solenoid on the dispenser for open circut.hope this helps.Ian.
