    The unit filled with water, however, the issue is the timer no longer advances.

  • cdracos Mar 18, 2011

    The timer was recently purchased and replacing it isn't a consideration, yet. The dishwasher filled by resetting the float switch near the tub outside the dishwasher. However, now that it fills, the timer does not advance. Would the level switch be effecting the functioning of the timer?

  • cdracos Mar 21, 2011

    The water inlet valve is fine. I tested several switches. The issue is the timer isn't triggered to advance.

    Where it the flow meter?

  • cdracos Mar 21, 2011

    Rick, where can I find the inline fuse? Something is definitely causing everything not to work. I'm checking the drain pump --it's fine.

  • cdracos Mar 21, 2011

    The recal was recently done in Nov. Waited 2 mos for parts. They would not replace burned wires, I had to replace them as well as two toasted switches from the overheated wax motor.

  • cdracos Mar 22, 2011

    I did not find the fuse..

  • cdracos Mar 22, 2011

    I have a diagram. If I send it to you, will it help?

  • cdracos Mar 24, 2011

    We tried but the problem still exists.

Have you checked the water inlet valve? there is a powered connection that goes to the fill valve located down the bottom of the machine and im sorry but i do have to ask due to others in the past not assuring that the water is on under the sink please check this as well but usually if you have a problem with water going into the machine you would first look at the water valve then the flow meter and lastly the float switch this is basicly what controls the water as individual pieces and the final piece would be your control board. so to start this grab a multimeter and check that you do have power going to the water inlet valve and message me back wtih your finds Thanks Rick

    yes if the switch is bad then the timer would not advance futher it basicly shuts the machine down so that the machine will not overfill all over your floor

Hi

When the Dishwasher is not filling in, you'll need to check for the water inlet valve, the filter screen and the float switch/assembly. Also check for the float assembly inside the dishwasher. When water is filling your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages. If these are fine then it's due to Water Inlet Valve. Use a multimeter and check for the continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

    Thanks for rejecting this solution, though you could have described this earlier as well...anyways yes it is the float switch that is bad as I told you earlier, you can try to run 2-3 cycles if the unit behaves same way then test the timer and if thats fine replace the float

Water doesn't seems to get into the dishwasher


HI,
Is it no water or little water? You could have a clogged inlet valve and this could be the cause. Check your water source coming into the unit, clean the screen and try again. Look for kinked water supply line as this can cause the same problem.
If this is not the case, get back to me with what you find out.
Thanks

Asko dishwasher 1875. Saying F2 fault. Reset doesnt fix. Water slowly running in constantly even when switched off. Pump runs if left on but if turned off it floods. any ideas?


Just wrote you a massive explanation then closed my window by accident. Lets try again!

From what you say, with water running even when powered off, this is certainly a mechanical failure of the water inlet valve. There will only be a couple of possible causes for this:

1) The valve is being jammed open by an obstruction, possibly grit in the water supply (did you have plumbing work done recently or work on the water supply in the street? This would be a classic cause). If an obstruction is the case then repeatedly starting a fill cycle, draining and satrting the fill again MAY shift the blockage.

2) There is a failure of the valve its self. Essentially it's just a valve with rubber seals operated by a small electro magnet and sometimes the seals fail (often as a result of a poor water supply allowing grit into the rubbers).

If the information at (1) above doesn't help, you may have to replace the valve (Though in examining it when you come to take it out, you may be able to locate and remove an obstruction).

To help you out there is a parts manual for your machine available in PDF here:

http://www.greatplainsapplianceparts.com/order/Parts%20Manuals/Asko/ASKO-Dishwasher/D3112%20(DW20.1)%20SS.pdf

Looks like the diagram on page 2 shows that you need part 135, although it seems to me that the author of the manual has got part 135 (Part No. 8073774 Cord Set) mixed up with part 140 ( Part No. 8073825 Inl. Valve Single 120V Sens.).

I imagine that if you go to the ASKO website and use the contact us option:
http://www.askousa.com/customer-care/contact-us/
They should be able to clear that up for you

Hope this all helps

Asko 1385: 13 year old dishwasher stops during cycle. If you push on the middle of the door it starts again. It is like the latch is not working properly but by all appearances the latch works fine....


when you latch the door it closes the circuit.
you may have to open the casing of the door to access the switch. it may be stuck or defective.

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.

Asko 1350 fill problem.


Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve if found to be defective.

Now, if the valve is ok, replace the control.

In most cases, this will be a control fault.

Asko D1716 dishwasher problem


I also have an Asko D1716 dishwasher. The water stopped flowing. I replaced the water inlet valve and I have another problem, but the replacement of the fill valve is now letting in water. You can call Asko at 1-800-898-1879 to order the parts. If you order from Asko, I'm told you have some warranty on the parts. Anyway, the screws take a star drive and there is a front plate and back plate you will need to remove. There are approx. 4 screws on the front and 4 screws on the back. Just remember to unplug it before starting any work. The fill valve is in front of the machine. There are 2 screws holding it in place from the front. You will need to remove it out the back though to replace it since the fill tube to the tub is short and it wont allow you to pull it out the front. The repair is really easy once you get started.

Hope this helps,

Dishwasher not filling


There is a new part that replaces the Overfill Pressure Switch part number 8058474. It is now part number 8071024 available from ASKO part sellers. The hose inlet on the new part has what looks like a blockage. It actually "dampens" the effect of the pressure sent through the small hose attached. The old part does not have this "damper" This pressure switch works in conjunction with the flood protection switch in the bottom pan of the dishwasher.
