Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

Macmarkus- You answered a question about an ASKO d1776 dishwater and mentioned? ?Based on your description and provided the dishwasher is indeed filling with water but not circulating, It sounds like a busted wash impeller within the main motor/circulation pump? It sounds as this is what I have. I ran the test for the circulation motor and I do hear something when it turn it on and off. I was hoping that you could provide me with information of how to get to the circulation pump and replace the impeller. Thanks, Tom

    Macmarkus-



    Thansk for the reply. No worries about you getting home - just shoot me an email when you get to your PC.

    I think the motor energizes, but I will know exactly if it the impeller or motor once I get to it. Thanks for the help.



    I look forward to hearing from you.

Hello Tom,

I hope I can help, it is a problem I`ve witnessed and repaired many times...unfortunately.

I guess I should start with the bad news though, the impeller assembly for Asko dishwashers are not available as a serviceable part but rather you`ll need the entire assembly, Asko original # 80 712 50-77, as shown here...

Macmarkus-

You answered a question about - d2fa99e.jpg
The part number substitutes to # 1194631 at "repairclinic.com".

The good news is if you are even a little mechanically inclined, you can replace it yourself.

I can certainly walk you through the "how to", but I`m presently still on the road but should arrive home in the next hour or two and I can better help you from my home PC.

I`ll watch for your reply to insure you`ve received my response to your request/post.

If I don`t see a reply when I arrive home, I`ll simply post my instructions anyway.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

    OK, well the motor&pump needs to be removed, so...



    With the right technique it isn't too bad, but it does require removing it from the cabinet/cupboard.



    This is what I do. FIRST...



    **Turn off the power at the main service panel or unplug the unit...safety first**



    1) Shut off the water and undo the water supply and drain hose. Remove as much water from inside down in the sumpwell as possible because you'll need to lye the dishwasher on its front ( remove any dishes inside and also get some towels or a blanket to gently lay it on so you don't damage the front panel or control's ).



    2) Once you have the unit out and face down, you'll see the back of the circulation motor&pump assembly...as shown here below.






    The arrows indicate the motor assembly ( top )...Undo the wires at the side of the motor ( A good idea would be to take a picture or draw a diagram, the picture is likely better...in my case at least ).



    wire harness location ( left )



    the motor mount with tie down ( right )





    ...this is where it gets a little tricky, but as I mentioned I've done plenty and will guide you through.



    The clamps holding the pump hoses in place are "one time" clamps and they are also very sharp...so be careful, if you observe closely you`ll see the "lip" on the clamp. That is where I place a flat screwdriver and break the clamp off ( careful not tear the rubber bellows...it`s a good idea to order a spare, part # 763885 )



    Circ. pump hose/bellows...










    This is an image of the top clamps ( image 1 ) as well as the front clamps to the sump ( image 2 )
















    Once removed they'll need to be replaced with narrow "worm gear" clamps when installing the new pump assy. Likely find those at a local "Home Depot", "Lowes" etc.



    3) Undo the wires at the side of the motor, the capacitor stays attached and you shouldn`t have to remove those wires.



    Now with the motor and pump out you can look to the center and observe the impeller I spoke of to witness it being broke from the motor assembly.



    i.e.










    Hopefully from here you will get along fine with the new one in. Let me know how you make out, I'll watch your post.



    Good luck.



    Regards,



    Macmarkus :)

The motor is not getting switched on at the proper time. The timer / cycle selector is the problem and is easily repairable.

Dishwasher is not washing the dishes. Motor sound like it comes on, Water is drained aout and put in but it appears no rinsing or washing goes on. Don"t hear the arms rotating either. It goes thru the...


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description and provided the dishwasher is indeed 1) an Asko D1776 and 2) filling with water, draining, heating, but not circulating, It sounds like a busted wash impeller within the main motor/circulation pump, as you mentioned. What you may not know, is the impeller itself is not serviceable, the entire motor/pump must be replaced unfortunately.

Before declaring it is indeed a motor/impeller issue, you said you hear a quiet sound of a motor starting once the unit has completed filling with water right ? Be sure the unit is actually filling with water, this image below indicates the normal water level to look for....


macmarkus_284.jpg


The pump will be super quiet if the wash impeller is broke as I suspect it may be...almost like a fountain, since the Asko are very quiet under normal conditions. You will have to either get right down with your ear to the bottom or run it with the door open by activating the door switch with a screw-driver and look for visual/audible clues. (try placing both spray arms at 12 o'clock position and placing a cup upright in the top rack. If the arms move and the cup fills, you've got circulation...if neither, you don't)

If so that is a tell tale of no wash action yet the motor runs, hence broken impeller. If you don't hear anything it may be a wire come off the main motor/circulation pump or severed somewhere between the motor and control, maybe where the door pivots during opening...but not likely.

This unfortunately is common with Asko built dishwasher`s and it is a case of being a victim of their own design.

What happens typically is the ball-bearings from the upper rack holders ( which are plastic, hence fatigues due to heat and fall apart ) come out making their way into the sump, hence breaking the wash impeller from the motor.

Let me know what you find and I'll try and help you move forward from there. If you need direction to remove the circulation motor and pump I can do that, but it is a pretty involved repair and requires pulling the unit from the cabinet. Check those other possibilities first and tell me what you find.

I'll watch for your reply.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Asko D1776 - Heating element stays on after the cycle has ended. I have to turn off at breaker panel to shut down. What part controls this heating element?


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description it is likely a faulty control board, unfortunately. Here's what you can do to check...

**Turn off any power to the unit...safety first**

You'll need to access the control, this is best done by way of removing the front panel, i.e.

macmarkus_64.jpg
Once to this point, identify the wires on contact PF2 and inspect the closest relay to it, which will be K1.

If you are capable, measure amperage from PF2 when the unit is idle there shouldn't be power present, you'll require an ammeter.

Having said all that, it may be obvious when you visually inspect the control, if it's burnt up or if the relay looks burnt inside.

This is an example of a damaged control but it may not be as extreme with a heater relay defective...

Let me know what you find and I'll try to help you further if necessary. For the control should be available at "repairclinic.com"...but if not let me know I may have one left.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa.

F2 overfill. how to reset?


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description "f2 overfill. how to reset?" It is likely nothing very serious.

The "F2" with Asko dishwashers means the control is indicating an overfill has been detected...but I gather you know that based on your post.
Whether the unit has actually overfilled or not remains to be seen, but to reset it is fairly simple...if nothing else is at fault.

**before proceeding turn the dishwasher power off via the home breaker panel, or unplug it from the wall if that is possible...most are hard wired to the home electrical...safety first**

The first thing to do is remove the toe panel/kick plate and inspect the base for water. If water is present, with the aid of a sponge, towels, or a wet-dry shop vacuum, absorb the water from the base.

By way of removing the water from the overfill basin should "reset" the unit. If the unit works fine after resetting the power/breaker it can likely be chalked up to a drain back-up or obstruction in the drain hose or pump.

Try this and let me know what you find and I`ll assist you in moving forward if necessary.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and good luck.

There is loud rumbling noise as the water fills the machine. What is up with this? Is it the water valve or something else?


Hello,

Based on your description I`d certainly think it is an inlet/water valve. It sound`s like the valve may be creating "water hammer" which can happen if it is failing.

If you go to an on-line part vendor such as repairclinic.com you`ll find a replacement valve if you enter you model number. Most Asko dishwasher`s use the number repairclinic refer to as #1467828.

Hope that answers your question. Thank you for visiting "fixya" today.
