Drive motor fault asko w640 - serviceman replaced brushes and hose - still had fault at the end of the 1st wash of the day - ie wash would almost finish. Cost at this stage was $250 so decided to take machine apart. Phoned asko australia for assistance and was told that I should have used an asko qualified serviceman - closest 110 klm away - most unhelpful - removed motor and noticed dirty, rough burnished commutator - removed new bushes and polished commutator on lathe - 1200 wet and dry and some wd40 - re fitted bushes and motor and now have a happy machine!

You are experiencing the same problem we have just gone through. Your motor (induction type) is damaged and is non-repairable and must be replaced. Get it done straight away otherwise you risk blowing up the ECU unit that allows and controls your spin speeds upto 1400rpm. They cost $300 each plus labour to fix. If both occur forget the repair, ditch the machine and buy another brand. You also probably have a small water leak above the motor which generally causes the motor fault to start with and generally be repaired with Silicone sealant.

Had a "wash motor fault" in July 2007, had a


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

This can be associated with worn brushes in the motor or a sign of a damaged spot on the motor armature, hence when you spun the drum off of the dead/damamged part the unit began to operate.

If capable one can remove the rear panel, and with the aid of a flashlight inspect the brushes and armature.

I'm surprised how often I hear of these motors being replaced when in most cases a new set of brushes will remedy the problem...alas I guess there is more profit for technicians for relatively the same amount of work in replacing a motor.

Let me know if the problem re-occurs or if you'd like a service guide into inspecting the components I alluded to.

Thank you.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Asko w640 has a water inlet fault


Check the drain line to make sure the water does not siphon out as it enters the machine.

Asko W640 - sporadically says motor fault and won't run, or, won't stop running, gets stuck on the spin cycle. We've had the motor fault problem before, but this "running on" issue is...


I would say the won't-run problem is separate from the run-on problem. You can live with the run-on problem -- probably a fault in the controller. Unless it's a faulty code, the motor-fault light probably means the motor is overheating. That can be caused by anything that causes it to work hard, such as a stuck pump.

Wash temperature scale


TEMPERATURE - CELSIUS OR FARENHEIT
If you want to change the temperature indication from Celsius (C) to Farenheit (F), proceed as follows:
Turn the main switch, off and turn it on again. Press the Enter button five times, then press the P2 button five times. These ten times must be completed within fifteen seconds. Within three seconds after pressing P2 the last time, use the < > buttons to select temperature indication.

Asko W640 water outlet fault


If you get the water fault after checking the lower drain, you may need to remove the drain hose in the back. Usually there is a dime in the hose or the hard part right before the hose.

Fault indication: water inlet fault


see if there is a blockage in the level switch. the switch operates on air pressure within the dip tube and the diaphragm in the switch. there may be a spider's nest in the tube or a wasp's nest in the tube.

Asko W600 spin cycle not working


Check the brushes oin the motor. It's the most normal fault when this problem appears. Not a big thing to fix for a technician!

Spin cycle trouble


possibly a segment has raised on the motor armature or a faulty motor brush. pop off the belt and put it into a spin cycle to see if you still hear the noise- if so the fault is with the motor as the drum will be still. any scraping sounds in the drum may be a lost bra wire.

Wash motor fault


We got the same problem 2 weeks ago. Overode it by swiching everything off and then back on, wish we hadn't as te machine stopped washing 1 week later. Motor has gone $300 and it took the electronic controler out as well $300. Labour $100 plus call out $95. It'sa serious falut and should get it fixed which begs the question why have fault indicator ro this problem if you cna overide it. In addition you probbaly have a minor water leak from above the motor, which can be fixed with silicone. Asko saya it's machine lasts 20 years, think again as for a $1900 machine very disappointed.
