Question about Asko 24 in. D3530FI Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Our Asko 3530 dishwasher is giving us a 'water inlet fault' code. The machine goes through the pre-drain at cycle start then begins to fill, continues until it's full then kicks out the fault code. I have changed the inlet valve, reset the system to factory default and taken off the lower front panel, finding the overflow area to be dry. Is it time to call for service or is there something else to try before spending the big bucks?

Hi,

This sounds like either the overflow sensor or the water control valve is stuck.
Usually the valve is a solenoid valve that controls the entrance and fill of the water.
If the overflow sensor is underneath, there may be water down below that accumulated causing this interference.Usually this is not a home handy man repair.


Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Intake/drain light on


Please check the INLET water pressure, remove the inlet and check. Now if there is pressure make sure that when the power is pressed there is a pre wash cycle to start the machine. If not there is fault in the program controller , please check the door switch and the panel board.

Some do have a screen but most don't. It could be possible that your feed line may be kinked? There is also the valve at the water inlet that could possibly going bad as well. Hope this helps.

F2 error message after dishwasher backed up when draining. Asko brand.


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error F2 in your Asko Dishwasher means high water level. This error occurs due to plugged/bad water pump and/or a bad inlet valve. If the water pump and/or water inlet valve are bad it should be replaced to resolve this issue. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Our Asko D3250 dishwasher is brand new, and it fills up and drains and fills again and then the water inlet fault flashes. It doesn't go past this point.


this sounds like a improper install ! ck to see if the drain hose outlet is lower than bottm of tank. it should drain to the disposal . and have a drain loop under sink .. the dw prosser is sensing that the drain is longer in time so it flasher inlet fault . . elevate the drain and try again ..if it drains to a lower use a stand pipe or a siphon brake . in the install .. mm

Asko D3530 water inlet fault code, water valve is on, water comes in but after water comes in for a couple of minutes we get a (inlet water fault code) check power at circulating pump no 120v unit will not...


Hello,

It is common for these valves to "appear" to be ok, meaning they begin to allow water into the unit, but then one of the two coils or plungers inside fail, or are clogged with mineral deposit from the water or other debris.

Change the valve and you should be fine. part #1164471, you can find it at select parts depots or on-line retailers like repairclinic.com etc.

** Hire a pro or make sure to use a good replacement clamp on the fill line to the tub when you replace the valve, as well as some plumbers puddy/tape on the inlet fitting. Those little buggers have alot of water pressure going thru them when they open and I've seen them come off or leak due to insufficient fastening/loose clamps, then your machine goes into "flood mode".**

Asko seems to be repeating their past. On the earlier DW95 series (mid 90's to around 2000ish) they had a dual valve inlet which had a single valve rework issued to repair the faulty dual valves, now it looks like they're doing it again. Go figure.

Hope that helps, let me know.

Good Luck :)

ASKO 1385 not filling after overfill protection was turned on


If when turned on the dishwasher sounds like it is running the drain pump, and does this in any cycle setting, it is possible that the drain pan below the unit has filled with water. Check this post for more details.

F4 Fault indication


F4 is a water inlet fault. It doesn't make sense if you have this fault indication with water flowing into the unit. Does the dishwasher drain properly? Usual suspects for an F4 indication would be a clogged inlet line, water supply turned off, bad fill valve, or a control board failure. Let me know if this helps, or give me a little more information on what you have done to correct so far.
