Machine suddenly started making a strange grinding noise while in the spin cycle. The water drained, but the noise is not normal. Is there an issue with the pump?


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description, " strange grinding noise while in the spin cycle. The water drained, but the noise is not normal. Is there an issue with the pump?" it could very well be just a clogged pump insert/filter.

It's not very difficult to check on the 8005 Asko though, you'll first need to remove the panel beneath the door...it should just pull forward and off.

**Unplug the washer before servicing the unit though...safety first** You may also need to have a wet-dry shop vacuum or plenty of towels as there will be quite a bit of water present.

Carefully remove the filter from the pump by turning it ( slowly to allow water out gradual )...the issue with these Asko pump inserts/filters is they can get so clogged up they are stuck and difficult to remove...

i.e.

these can become clogged with items such as coins, hair-pins etc. that can actually damage the part, thus causing a "grinding noise" or the like.


Once the filter is removed check the pump thoroughly as well as the hoses to rule out any other possible blockage.

Unfortunately once they are clogged to an extreme degree removing the filter by normal means becomes difficult or impossible without breaking it as I alluded to.

The image I attached above is an example of a pump I had to remove and disassemble to clean it out so the filter could be removed/unscrewed, hence the need for the "worm-gear" clamps had to be used to replace the original "one-time" clamps.

If you indeed break this part during your attempts to remove it, a replacement is available, Asko original part # 88 010 69 and available at on-line retailer "repairclinic.com" for about $25-$30USD.

i.e.

Let me know how you make out or if you require further assistance. Ultimately the drain pump itself could be faulty, or it could be the main motor brushes causing the noise...that can be ruled out or confirmed by running a spin cycle with the drain pump disconnected, but I'd certainly check for obstructions first.

Thank you for choosing FixYa and good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Asko 10505 washer will not spin


Hi, 2 things to check for. Obstruction in the drain pump or faulty drain pump, brushes in the motor worn out. The easiest way to determine the pump issue is answer this question. Does it drain ? Next, turn the timer to the drain/spin cycle, obviously it should drain & spin and advance to "off". The next thing with these 10505 asko is to see if the drum rotates in both directions in the wash/agitate portion of the cycle. You can just select the short wash for this (I forget if it's #4 or #5) If not, it's worn brushes. However, you'll have to make sure the armature isn't damaged before simply installimg new brushes. We can cross that bridge when we get there. Let me know. Hope that helps, though those are just the most common problems there could be others. Good Luck

Asko 10505 not agitating or spinning


not a solution, I have had the same problem due to family members overloading the machine, in fact I have it now which is why I am on here. Previously I fixed it by cleaning the deposit left on the rotor caused by the brushes. It worked before but not this time maybe the brushes are now too worn. This is my second set of brushes I replaced a set after about 10 years of use. From memory there is not a huge difference between a completely new motor and a set of brushes so I may go that way now as the machins is around 15 years old

Kenmore Washing Machine won't agitate, spin, or drain


It sounds like the motor needs to be replaced, you can drain the water by taking the drain hose from the drain and lowering down water will drain.

Asko 620 not spinning and not agitating


Clean armature and replace brushes. When you remove the brushes the shut a small pin like device maybe protruding from the brush tip. this is a sure clue.

Asko W620 washing machine not spinning


Sounds like the motor brushes need to be cleaned or replaced. Take the back off the washer, remove the motor and gently scrape the excess carbon or debris off the brushes with a pocket knife. I did this and it ran well for about 50 loads before building back up. I am ordering new brushes now because when I checked the brushes last week they were obviously worn more than 4 weeks ago.

The problem sounds like the motor to transmission coupler. If it is not draining or spinning you may find that the lid switch is inop.
