I have a ASKO DW20.3 dishwasher and it seems the fan has started to make noise in the dryer cycle. Do you know how to access the fan. Is it you have to take the door panel off?

it is your overflow .. there is water under in the dishwasher tray or the float is stuck in the up position.
you will have to remove the toe panel and get the water out from the tray or free the float ( sometimes soap gets under and sticks the float in the up position... let me know if there is water or stuck switch . hope it helps

SOURCE: Asko door latch stuck

The only way is to pull out the dishwasher ,unhook the latch and then unscrew the door panel.your dishwasher is installed with 2 screws to the underside of your countertop. its tricky but youll have to remove them adjust to leveling legs down this will give you more room to get some head bit in ther to remove the screws if its out then slide the d/w foward ,remove the strike plate door will open then you can get your dishes out first

The pump/motor assembly on these dishwashers have a soft food cutter that helps to cut up smal soft food particles. This may be your problem.

These cutter blades can sometimes get loose or something can get hung up in them like a broken piece of glass or some other pieces of trash that they can not handle.

You can access these blades by removing the sump cover near the rear of the bottom of the inside of the dishwasher. remove the bottom rack and take a couple of screws out of the sump cover. you can feel down in the sump and see if there is any trash caught up here or in the blades.

If this is not the problem and you have an older dishwasher - you could have a problem with a loose fan blade in the motor. If this is the case I would run it til it dies. The motor/pump assembly is about $125+. The newer motors are a lot quieter.

If everything is working ok. I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Is my asko d1776 repairable. It's currently not going into wash mode. The Blade are not turning and washing.

The motor is not getting switched on at the proper time. The timer / cycle selector is the problem and is easily repairable.

Where is the thermostatelocatedonthe asko t711 dryer


Welcome to FixYa.

To answer your question, it depends on which thermostat`s it is you`d like to know about.

Attached below is the location of the cycling thermostat`s and below that is the location of the reset-able safety thermostat. It is on the back wall under the black rubber cap I`m pointing at in the 2nd photo.

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.

I have an F2 error and the fan or dryer keeps running...i understand that this means a high water level and i have already checked the screens and filters. but how do i turn off the dryer so i may safely...

Hello, Welcome to FixYa. Sorry you have had to wait so long for a reply, it seems there are only a limited number of techs here familiar with Asko. Anyway, yes F2 normally would indicate a hi water level detected...normally. The difefrence in your case being the fact of the condensor/dry fan running. This is a red flag. In these scenario's 99% of the time the control is at fault. If you remove the door and control panel and visually inspect the control you will most certainly see burnt circuits on the control. If you have not already found the problem or hired a tech to look at the dishwasher, let me know and I'll guide you in what to do and to look for in more detail. I'll watch for a reply, Macmarkus :)

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 D3121 Dishwasher - Dryer (Turbo) fan in door not working

Hi langmac,

Actually I am quite familiar with asko and have done factory warranty for them between 1998 to 2006 ( I now work for sears ). I would actually steer you away from either of the fan motor or control somewhat...could be bad, not very likely, but close. Since you seem to be familiar enough with the layout of the asko d/w, I'd suggest you pull the fan assembly apart as they can become clogged up and in turn make it impossible for the "wax
motor" ( small brown box @ the fan housing with two brown wires going to it...actually all the wires are brown lol ) to open the vent
shutter's. The wax motor on those have been known to burn out as a consiquence, but are relatively in-exspensive and now in fact come as a complete fan assembly ( # 8073851 and retail around $80-$90 depending what country you reside ). You can visually inspect the wax motor body for burn marks which is a sign of excessive wear. I would start by cleaning up the fan housing, blower wheel and vent first though, it may be all which prevent's proper least in my experience.

Let me know how you make out and I'll try to keep checking your post.
Hope this help's move you forward.

Good luck

Asko T780 Dryer Vibrating/Grinding noise

Sounds like a bad roller. You'll have to remove the drum to get at them. Even a free one may make noise at speed. Use high temp grease. Also check roundness. And don't forget the belt tensioner roller, just don't get any grease where the belt touches.

ASKO 1605

Hi Guys
My dishwasher this morning has desided to not work correctly.
Its a ASKO 1302 about 20 years old. It has been a very good machine.
Over the last couple of weeks during the washing cycle, the dishwasher has been making a loader noise than usual.
1. Today, the dishwasher timer, travels all the way through its cycle, but very little washing take place.
2. Soap power is still there, plates not clean!!!!
3. Water is hot
4. At the end of the cycle, there is no water in the dishwasher.
5. I'm thinking the problem could be the pump needs replacing.
What do you think?
