This is because ther is a leak from the main tank. Water goes under the main tank, where all electric motors, pipes an pump are. There is sensor in that area that trigger the drain pump. Up to 4 or 5 liters can accumulate in that area.
Only solution is to remove that water by tilting the washer on what ever corner.

    Under the main tank, there is another storage pan where all the water accumulate.
    Typical reason why water accumulate there is because the washer did not drain properly at previous cycle, hence some water stayed at the bottom of the main tank. On next cycle, the washer starts adding more water, and the overfill trigger, leaking to the under pan.
    After removing all the water, I have observe longer good working time by not using the washer for 24h to let it dry completely. Then it last between 1 to 3 month before I have to clean it again.

    I will update that post if I can find out why the washer does not drain properly.

I have an asko d3251 dishwasher that won't stop running. The device in the drain that spins won't stop. I had to shut the power off to the unit.


Our unit had leaking connection on outlet side of fill solenoid valve. Any leak will cause water to accumulate in base pan. there is a float switch in base pan as a safety mechanism when water is in pan it causes a styrofoam float to rise and make contact with switch. This tells machine there is a leak creates error code to run pump continuously until water is removed from base. Disconnet electric from unit first. you must pull dishwasher out to get at back panel. Remove lower back panel to get access to mechanicals of unit. Once you remove panel you should see water in pan. If you see water that is most likely same issue we had. soak up excess water or tilt unit to drain water out of pan. once water is gone unit should start normally. If you look underneath while unit starts up - don't touch anything while unit is connected to electricity! You should notice where water is coming from. Our unit leaked at hose connection from outlet side of solenoid fill valve. connector is a plastic cam-lock fitting with a flow sensor integrated into it. there is an o-ring between the two parts. it comes apart with a very small amount of counter-clockwise motion. perhaps only five or ten degrees of indexing and it falls right off. it is a very flimsy connection for the main water line. the o-ring on our unit Was slightly deformed and not seated correctly. could have been from original installers 4 years earlier! Asko needs to re-design this part. I replaced o-ring and unit is working again however I do not trust that this fitting will hold up over time. Very poor design in my opinion. Other design flaw I noticed while looking at mechanicals is circulating pump isolation mount is not in correct location for pump motor. rubber mount is stressed to the point of almost tearing off! No way for me to correct this since location of mount does not match position of motor. We will not replace this unit with another ASKO when it goes.

Our sink and garbage disposal was clogged up. We got the sink unclogged, but the dishwasher had dirty water in the bottom and won't drain.


Your dishwasher drains into the garbage disposal. It you tried to use a plunger to clear your clogged sink or run the disposal with to much junk in it you may have force debris into the dishwasher drain hose. With both the dishwasher and garbage disposal disconnect from power disconnect the dishwasher drain hose from the garbage disposal. This is usually about a one inch black hose. Clear out any debris in the hose and inlet nipple on the garbage disposal. If debris is compacted far down the hose it will need to be disconnected from the dishwasher end and remove to clear the blockage.

Good luck!

My Asko Dishwasher D1976 on the main panel all of the top lights are on and in the display window it flashes F2. The motor is on but nothing else is happening can you help. I have checked that drains are...


Hi


Error F2 in asko dishwashers indicate high water level. This may happen due to plugged drain pump or due to faulty water inlet valve. To resolve the issue remove the back plate and check the drain pump. Disconnect the hoses from the drain pump and clear the lint from the hose and the pump area. Lot of water would be ther when you'll remove the hose from the pump, be ready to collect it. Let it dry and now the dishwasher will work perfectly now.

Hope it helps...

Drain pump won't turn off, all lights are blinking


Try pushing the cancel button. Try holding the cancel button down. If it'll let you select a cycle, try running a cycle. Try putting a large volume of water in there. It might either clear the pump or it will "see" the water going out be satisfied. If it remembers the cycle you last ran, or which cycle you usually run, run a cycle that it's not used to. That helps clear the computer some dishwashers. Failing that, try turning the circuit breaker off for a minute. Press every button on the dishwasher. There's a chance that that will help drain any power stored, making the computer forget what condition it was in. Failing that, try turning the circuit breaker off or for a day or two. Failing that, if you know what you're doing and you're not worried about voiding the warranty, open up the control panel where the main circuit board is. We can assume that if it remembered this cycle with the power turned off for a while that there's a battery in there to keep from clearing the memory. Find the little button cell battery and take it out for a few minutes. Then put it back in and turn the power on. There may a reset button hidden inside there or somewhere else on the machine. Find the manual at home or on the internet and look in the troubleshooting section. There might be a specific button combination to clear that condition.
To keep this from happening in the future, pick up and install a dishwasher air gap for around $15. It's really easy and keeps water from backing up into the dishwasher. They're actually required in a lot of cities.

Dishwasher won't power off


Howdy. Flashing light on the switch, shows a glass? At any rate your overflow protection switch is activated. Probable cause; plugged or defective exhaust hose that does not allow pumping to go faster than water coming in, too high a water level. Clean the entire system first!
Is your exhaust hose going up to about threequarters as high as the machine? You must have this uphill twist and turn in the drain system.
A little water remains in the sensor and it thinks you are flooded. Force air through the pump in the floor until all is clear, a clean plumber's helper is ideal. Keep doing this until you get the last bit of water out of the sensor. When you get it running watch the machine (First time) carefully. You do not want a flood, that's why Asko put this safety device in place.

The drain pump motor on my ASKO model 1375 dishwasher wont stop running


Had a similar scenario on my Asko 1325. I simply removed the unit in preparation to chuck it, but once outside decided to check the inside of the pump/impeller and the electrical connections. Found plastic debris in the pump, and wiggled every electrical connector of its attachment and then re-attached it. Tried the Asko-fiasko outside and it worked.

BTW be prepared for an electrical failure/ meltdown as per the following two photos:e4b01cd.jpg47ce737.jpg

Lights on the Asko D1996 keep blinking


This depends on the blinking pattern. Of the eight lights on the panel, if the four on the left blink on and then the right four lights blink on as the left ones go off, and keep blinking back and forth, that just means the mode has been set and the Start button pressed. After closing the door it should just continue on wherever it is in the cycle. (This is normal operation).
If you hold down the Start button, this resets the dishwasher. If you then close the door, nothing will happen because it thinks it's done.
If the lights are blinking in a different pattern, such as they all blink on and off in unison, that indicates an error condition and needs to be diagnosed. If the pump is not running constantly, then at least it's not because water is leaking out somewhere.

ASKO Overfill protection tripped


Remove the backpanel of the machine, and look if there is water at the bottom of the machine. If so, use a towel or so to dry up the water. This should solve the prob.

Try to find out from where water leaking from (pump or inlet valve). The leaking one, should be replaced. Good luck !
