Asko 12605 overheating the wash water

Hi, My machine heats the water during the whole wash stage continuously on any temperature setting other than zero. It goes through the cycles on cold (even not taking in hot water when filling before the wash stage which seems good). So, as the machine cooks the clothes when set on a positive temperature, I am only using it cold. Would this be a faulty thermostat (or are there other components that could cause this problem) and could the problem be rectified by myself - having normal handyman skills. Thanks, Ian Roberts

    The water is not heating resulting in only cold wash cycles

Hi Asko Man, Thanks for your thoughts. The glass door gets too hot to touch if you don't turn the temperature dial to zero during the wash stage. Is the thermostat accesible from the back of the machine and is this a handyman-friendly job? Is it possible that this fault might also cause the timer to rapidly advance to the end of a cycle when the temperature dial is set on other than zero as there seems to be a pattern of the machine working on cold properly but doing the rapid rotation thing when set at other than zero.

The washer fills with cold water then heats it up 3 degrees a min. Your problem does sound like a faulty thermostat. Especailly if the glass door does get hot even if it is on 85f.

Hi my machine will fill with water then doesn't do anything for the whole wash cycle then will dran and spin but will not wash in the wash cycle


Hi, it could be your heater element is not kicking in and so its not heating up the water and not moving on to the next stage of washing. Best get the unit checked out.

My Asko W6461 spins a great deal of vibration. I have tried to use smaller loads to stop it but it continues. Could it need releveling?


The "inside" of the machine should move pretty much during wash and spin, but if the whole machine is vibrating alot, it could be a levelling problem. Could also be a problem with the shock absorbers, but that is rather uncommon:)

W6021 will not heat water, but will continue to wash a complete cycle. It does take over 3 hours to complete one cycle. I have changed the temperature select module.


Sounds like heating element, should read around 30 ohms on multimeter if okay, if faulty will take forever to do wash...Good luck

Kenmore Ultra Wash 3 (6651694193) stuck in wash cycle


Hi,
There should be 2 thermostatic switches in the heater area. They are just simple bi-metallic "button" switches.
One will trip at the correct temperature - and tell the programmer to advance now the water is hot enough. The other will cause a shut-down if the water is over heated.
It is the first one you need to replace - I wouldn't bother testing it.

Obviously - disconnect everything before opening up (I have to say this) and only if competent to carry out a repair.
However - you don't know which is which?
To test them. Remove one, put inside an empty can , and put 1" of water in a pan onto boil. Test continuity with a meter when cold - and when sitting in boiling water.
Turn off heat, and see which trips first. That is the over-temperatue one. When a little cooler, the other should trip. This low setting one is likely the faulty one - so will not trip or contacts will be faulty.
These are available online from various appliance retailers.

ASKO 1605


Hi Guys
My dishwasher this morning has desided to not work correctly.
Its a ASKO 1302 about 20 years old. It has been a very good machine.
Over the last couple of weeks during the washing cycle, the dishwasher has been making a loader noise than usual.
1. Today, the dishwasher timer, travels all the way through its cycle, but very little washing take place.
2. Soap power is still there, plates not clean!!!!
3. Water is hot
4. At the end of the cycle, there is no water in the dishwasher.
5. I'm thinking the problem could be the pump needs replacing.
What do you think?

Detergent not being washed out of dispenser


This suggestion is not too good. If your dispenser opens at the initial stages of the cycle, just a little - pour some water into the dispenser to wash down the detergent. (For my machine i can pull out the dispenser anytime during the wash, except when water comes into the dispenser, but even then i think the water enters the tub.) For this you dont have to hang around the machine for long for it is in the initial stages of the cycle. Later you hv to check the flow of water into the dispenser. Hv no idea how to do it; but i gave you a quick solution.
