    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.

Dishwasher asko 1895 the pump the working the lights are flashing but the machine is not working


The lights flashing is telling that there is a fault in the dishwasher.
I am assuming you have emptied the dishwasher after the drain cycle failed to work due to the pipe block.
You will have to make a fresh start. Empty the dishwasher, turn the power mains switch off and on to reset the dishwasher.
Start a new cycle and see if flashing lights stop flashing. If still same problem you will have to note which light(s) are flashing and send a post on this page. There is a chance the impeller in the drain pump may have sufferred some damage due to drain block depending on how long the motor operated before you found the problem with the drain.

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.
