Question about Asko 24 in. D3250 Built-in Dishwasher

2 Answers

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 and saw to check for a flashing fault code, and I observed that the Heavy Wash light is flashing which indicates "Too much water has entered the dishwasher. Call a service technician." Obviuosly I don't want to call a technician; I'd like to fix it myself. There is no standing water in the base of the DW, but there is some water in the filter/pump area, which I belive is normal. I removed the filters and and a small white "adaptor piece" on the left side of the sump area. That reveals an opening from which I can feel the pump blades, which spin freely. I do not see the pump itself and the plastic cup shaped cover over the pump does not seem like it can be removed. I did some searching on this site and the proposed solution for one person who had a problem that sounds similar to mine was: "You can remove the pump and check it for blockage or any foreign object." So my questions are - how do I remove the pump? and is this the best thing to try or is there something else i should try? Thanks so much for any help anyone can give.

If you call Asko customer support, they have a PDF guide on how to clear the water from the pan at the bottom of the dishwasher, which then clears the overfill protection fault. They suggest that there are many reasons the water may collect and simply removing it may solve the issue. Regards ... RJ

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 .

Asko d3250 pump runs continuously


I have a D3450 that was doing the same. Eventually I ascertained that there was a pressure switch that was not functioning properly. On the D3250 it was only accessible from the rear after taking off the lower panel on the back. It was a black part with a red membrane of sorts. I just disconnected its wire connector instead of replacing the part as it was rather expensive. I've been running mine machine at least 2x day for months since with no problems. Good luck! e53c3564-9255-4057-93f1-a616c7ab21ca.jpg

Asko WCAM1812 makes noise when draining


I recently had this same problem. There is a spinning wheel inside the pump that has likely detached from the motor. Upon removing the back of the unit, you will see a water pump on the bottom left of the unit. There are three screws attaching the pump to the rest of the assembly, remove the screws and detach the motor, out should pop out a red spinning wheel. I Gorilla glued mine back on, and it sounds better than before the grinding noise.

Asko dishwasher heavy wash light flashing and pump continually drains even with door open


The reason our Asko D3250 had this problem was because of a leak. The pump hose (approx. 2" black rubber hose - find it here http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Pump-Hose/8801409/1810263) was split, causing a leak and the blinking heavy wash light. The sensor did its job and picked up the leak.
If you're handy you don't necessarily need to call a repairman in to accomplish the work. You don't need to pull the front of the dishwasher apart. Unplug the power to the dishwasher. Take off the back bottom panel. Next, test where the leak is coming from. Place pans below the holes found on the bottom of the dishwasher. They are visible when removing the back panel and are most likely at the rear of the dishwasher. Plug the power back in then start the dishwasher. If your problem is a leak, you will easily spot it with a flashlight. After ordering and installing your part, make sure to dry all water that has settled in the bottom of the dishwasher. You can easily accomplish this through the back of the dishwasher with the panel removed. If it's still damp the sensor will continue to detect water. Once dry, start the cycle to make sure there are no more leaks before reinstalling the panel.

I have an ASKO D3250 and it has recently started making a loud noise from the pump area. It starts as soon as the cycle begins and doesn't stop even if you open the door. It seems to stop about 90 seconds...


All power and sounds should stop when any dishwasher door is opened.
Your door switch may be stuck causing it to continue.
The 90 second sound at the beginning of the cycle is the water pump extracting any residual water before taking on clean water for the wash cycle.
Any excessive noise from the drain pump could be debris in the pump. e.g. broken glass.
You can remove the pump and check it for blockage or any foreign object.

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 1796 F2 problem


It sound like you have a blocked or a malfunction pump. Remove the pump from the machine and check whether you have a clogged inside the pump or in one of the pipes connected to it. In case all is clean, you should replace the pump.. Good luck !
