Question about Asko D1716 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

My asko dishwasher will not turn off. The pumps runs but nothing happens. The dial has no control over the machine at all. I have turned off the breaker but wonder should I order parts or can it. We have had the pump replaced twice on this machine, but this is a totally different issue. Thanks for your assistance, Steve Pennington

Hello Steve,

Welcome to FixYa.

As an Asko expert and based on your post, the good news...I can fairly confidently tell you It is likely nothing very serious, but the "resolve" requires some investigation on your part.

What the pump running continuous means is the timer has indicated a overfill.

**before proceeding turn the dishwasher power off via the home breaker panel, or unplug it from the wall if that is possible...most are hard wired to the home first**

The first thing to do is remove the toe panel/kick plate and inspect the base for water. There will likely be water present.

With the aid of a sponge, towels, or a wet-dry shop vacuum, absorb the water from the base, that should restore normal should be known that if you leave the unit for a few days, the water in the base will evaporate hence appearing as everything is fine again...if any other problem/leak does exist it will return.

If the unit works fine after resetting the power/breaker and soaking up any water present, it can likely be chalked up to a drain back-up or obstruction in the drain hose or pump...
(it could mean a faulty drain pump so you'll need to pay close attention the next few times you run it)

**The float is primarily the last ditch safety to prevent disaster in the event of a overflow, back-flow, or leak underneath the unit and the continuous pumping is
letting you know to service or call for service to the unit**

Hope this helps move you forward, or even better resolves the issue altogether. Let me know of course, I will help you move further if necessary.

Good luck.

Dishwasher asko 1895 the pump the working the lights are flashing but the machine is not working

The lights flashing is telling that there is a fault in the dishwasher.
I am assuming you have emptied the dishwasher after the drain cycle failed to work due to the pipe block.
You will have to make a fresh start. Empty the dishwasher, turn the power mains switch off and on to reset the dishwasher.
Start a new cycle and see if flashing lights stop flashing. If still same problem you will have to note which light(s) are flashing and send a post on this page. There is a chance the impeller in the drain pump may have sufferred some damage due to drain block depending on how long the motor operated before you found the problem with the drain.

Hi I had f2 flash up on the control panel so we drained it and turned it back on it now shows 5 on the control panel and wont do anything else it is a ASKO D1976


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 there 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...

Asko1585 sprayer arm not working

Most likely the circulation pump. On this pump there is mounted a condensator. This will help the pump to get started. If this is broken, it wont circulate the water up to the sprayers.

Our Asko D3112 was not draining, so we had maintenance drain the hoses to clear any blockage but it did nothing. They said it must be our pump not working. I ran one more cycle to see if things went back...

Check your manual to see if you have a drain pan at the bottom of the unit, and a 'float' that checks for water collecting there. On at least some Asko models, water collecting in the pan causes the float to rise, which then changes the operation of the dishwasher. Once that float switch turns on, the diskwasher will always run the drain pump whenever power is applied.
If this is the case for your machine, remove the kick panel. There likely is another panel behind that which covers the 'internals', including the drain pan area. You'll have to remove all of the water in the pan, and that will lower the float and return the controller to normal operation. THen you will have to diagnose the cause of the water collecting in the pan.
Another possibility is damage to the float such that it has turned on it's switch despite no water collecting in the drain pan. I've heard that in some cases a mouse will chew on the float and damage it, causing such machine operation.
In another thread, I posted my solutions to one cause of water collecting in the drain pan. In that case the drain pump was no longer reliably moving water out of the sump area inside the dishwasher. I had thought it was the manual dial control on my d1706 unit, until I learned that the dishwasher has this 'special' drain pan mode.

Asko 3250 dishwasher pump not shutting off

I have had the problem of the water pump on my Asko Model D3121 running continuously several times. I contacted Asko customer service and they told me that the reason that this is happening could be that I am using too much dishwasher detergent. I was told to use a little less than 1 tablespoon for each load. The customer service person told me to actually measure it out. It is not very much. But, this doesn't fix the problem if it exists. To try to fix this, first turn off the circuit breaker for the machine or unplug the machine, whichever is easier. I was also told that there are 3 filters on the bottom part of the inside of the dishwasher. There is a grey basket that you squeeze the sides and remove. Underneath this grey basket, there is another basket that you unscrew and there is a wire mesh filter piece that the basket sits on. I was told to clean all of these filters with warm soapy water. Then, inside the hole underneath all of the filters, there is a yellow plug on the side. You pull this out (be sure to observe how the plug fits into the side of the hole since I didn't pay attention and it took me a long time to figure out it goes back in) and stick you finger inside the hole to see if there is any debris stuck in there. If there is, you should take it out. The reason the pump keeps running is because there is water in the pan underneath the dishwasher. It is really hard to get to the pan without removing the front lower panel and this is really hard to do. So, what I did was take some dishtowels and I stuck them into the hole that all of the filters fit into (I had removed all the filters and the yellow plug). I kept using dry towels as the others got wet. This sucked up a lot of the water. I then took a turkey baster and tried to angle it into the hole and try to **** up more water. Someone also said to use a syringe or maybe one of those kitchen syringes that you use to inject butter or flavoring into food. After I got as much water out as possible, I turned on the circuit for the dishwasher but the dishwasher pump was still running. I turned the circuit breaker back off and then I waited two days and whatever water was left must have evaporated. The pump stoppped running when I turned the circuit breaker back on. Once the pump stops running, YOU NEED TO CLOSE THE DOOR TO THE DISHWASHER AND HOLD THE START BUTTON IN FOR A FEW SECONDS. The machine will start making noise while you are holding the start button in but then there will be a "click" kind of noise and the dishwasher will turn off. This RESETS the machine. I didn't do this the first time and I ended up with the pump running again. Sorry the solution is so long but I wanted it to be detailed so maybe I could save someone the agony I went through. But it worked and I got to cancel the repair appointment which was going to cost a minimum of $185.
Also, I was told that every 3 to 6 months, I should clean out the filters and also put a bowl with 2 cups of lemon juice on the bottom basket of the dishwasher and run it without only the bowl in there. Customer service said that I could use vinegar but that the lemon juice smells better.
I hope this helps someone!

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.
