Question about Asko W620

1 Answer

Asko 620 not spinning and not agitating

I replaced brushes 6 months ago and it worked fine.
But now it wont spin and not agitating.Will fill with water and drain but will do nothing in between.I took out motor and looked at brushes,they still look new.
Drum will rotate easily,It will not go to any code,just will not do anything after filling with water.Is there anyway of testing the motor when it is out?I will go and take motor out again and clean off brushes but they did look fine before.

    I checked each of the brush and it seems the left brush with the pin protruding out prevents the larger surface of the brush from making full contact with the armature. Will it matter if I file off this pinlike brush so the larger surface does make full contact with the armature?

Clean armature and replace brushes. When you remove the brushes the shut a small pin like device maybe protruding from the brush tip. this is a sure clue.

Replaced the clutch and motor coupler a month ago. Ran great. Washed tennis shoes. Came in to remove clothes, didn't spin. Wont agitate or spin, i could hear the motor running. Just replaced the motor...


Check for a failed capacitor under the control panel It is a start/run capacitor that the motor needs to start running. The motor will hum and if left will eventually burn out.

GE washer wont agitate or spin ?


This could be because the carbon brushes in your motor are worn down. One will need to check the motor to be sure.

The carbon brushes apply electricity to the motor via a split ring comutator.
Over a while the carbon dust can create a short circuit. The motor needs to be looked at and cleaned. Possibly may need to replace the brushes.

Take care!

Whirlpool washer WTW57ESVW0 won't fill with water. I bought this machine two months ago was working fine and then just stopped filling water. Spin cycle and drain cycle work but it won't start fill...


Solution for WTW57ESVW0 Whirlpool Washer that won't fill or agitate, but will spin and drain water.

Replacing the Auto Load Sensing Switch (W10177795 - Illus. No. 12 on Control and Rear Panel Parts) fixed the problem.

In addition, a defective switch can also cause the machine to start agitating while it is filling.

It is relatively easy to replace and there are online videos that can help with the replacement.

Asko 10505 washer will not spin


Hi, 2 things to check for. Obstruction in the drain pump or faulty drain pump, brushes in the motor worn out. The easiest way to determine the pump issue is answer this question. Does it drain ? Next, turn the timer to the drain/spin cycle, obviously it should drain & spin and advance to "off". The next thing with these 10505 asko is to see if the drum rotates in both directions in the wash/agitate portion of the cycle. You can just select the short wash for this (I forget if it's #4 or #5) If not, it's worn brushes. However, you'll have to make sure the armature isn't damaged before simply installimg new brushes. We can cross that bridge when we get there. Let me know. Hope that helps, though those are just the most common problems there could be others. Good Luck

Asko 10505 not agitating or spinning


not a solution, I have had the same problem due to family members overloading the machine, in fact I have it now which is why I am on here. Previously I fixed it by cleaning the deposit left on the rotor caused by the brushes. It worked before but not this time maybe the brushes are now too worn. This is my second set of brushes I replaced a set after about 10 years of use. From memory there is not a huge difference between a completely new motor and a set of brushes so I may go that way now as the machins is around 15 years old

Asko W620 washing machine not spinning


Sounds like the motor brushes need to be cleaned or replaced. Take the back off the washer, remove the motor and gently scrape the excess carbon or debris off the brushes with a pocket knife. I did this and it ran well for about 50 loads before building back up. I am ordering new brushes now because when I checked the brushes last week they were obviously worn more than 4 weeks ago.
