Asko 1705 Dishwasher won't fill. Sounds as if the pump is going but no water.

    This is more of a thank you for your help and another solution to the same problem when it isn't the 90 percent solenoid valve cause.



    Our ASKO 1885 wouldn't fill. We did your recommendations and eliminated the solenoid valves. They worked fine. Thanks.



    I tried blowing through the tube from the solenoid valves to the dishwasher cabinet. Even though the rubber tube looked pristine the path was clogged. Turned out to be the small fitting in the right side wall that directs the water into the pan. Totally calcified.



    We set the dishwasher on it's side so that we could pour household vinegar into the blocked tube. After "refreshing" the vinegar over a period of a couple of hours, it slowly dissolved all the calcium. Everything works fine.



    Hope this helps someone else as you helped us.

The issue is most likely in the fill valve itself(around 90% of the time). This is located behind the toe kick on the right hand side of the machine. the valve can be checked manually by using a jumper cord connected to 110V power and directly attaching it to the valve electrical terminals. First shut off the dishwasher power at the house breaker panel. Remove the electrical connections at the fill valve. attach the jumper cord and power the valve directly. if there is no water entering the machine then the valve needs replacement. If there is water then proceed below.


There have been some issues with wiring to the fill valve. You will have to carefully inspect the wires beneath the toekick for breakage.You will need to have a torx 15 or 20 handy to remove the screws( if installed properly) ther will be several brown or grey wires in a bundle on the lower right hand side beneath the door.

Use extreme caution when working with electrics.
Ideally have a technician verify the problem for you.

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.

Asko 1875 had a new main board, wax motor and temp thermistor fitted 6 months ago. now thw machine pumps in the water but does not wash what could be the problem


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description and provided the dishwasher is indeed 1) an Asko 1875 and 2) filling with water, draining, heating, but not circulating, It sounds like a busted wash impeller within the main motor/circulation pump, unfortunately.

First though, do you hear a quiet sound of the wash motor starting once the unit has completed filling with water ? And 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.

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...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...you may opt to call in a pro.

I'll watch for your reply and try to help in any manner I can.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

I have an ASKO D3250 and it sounds like the pump is continuously trying to grind food, or something like that - it is quite loud - and it never begins the wash - no water is pumped. I checked the manual...


if no water is entering the machine the problem is not going to be in the pump the noise you hear is the pump running with too litle water check for power at the water valve if proper voltage is present you have a faulty or plugged valve if no power check the float switch it is there to keep the dishwasher from over filling it may be stuck in the over fill position which would explain the fault code you mentioned . try to reset it and test .

It doesn't sound like the dishwasher jet arms are spraying water and the dishsoap was still on door at end of cycle.

Dishwasher begins to fill then stops with no further progress.


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on hoe you`ve described the issue with your Asko, initially it sounds like a faulty inlet/water fill valve...

But, I`d like to clarify the symptom first. Does the unit complete the fill cycle and then do nothing, or it just energizes the fill momentarily then does nothing ?

Also I will ask to verify the model is an Asko 1375 ?

I`l watch for your reply.

Asko dw 95.2 model 1705 after 6 years of use the dishwasher top drawer rolls out. Will not stay inside when main door is open.


Check the level and tightness of the slide rails--they may have come loose after the years of use. Make sure the dishwasher case itself is level. Hope this helps!

Drain pump runs continously


Sounds like you have a leak under the unit. There is a float in the bottom that turns the pump on when it has water in the lower pan. It won't let any water fill until it is dry.

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.
