plastic is hand tight only

Hello Vanessa,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description and provided the dishwasher is indeed 1) an Asko D1716 and 2) filling with water, draining, heating, but not dissolving the detergent, it often is a busted wash impeller within the main motor/circulation pump.

Unfortunately the impeller itself is not serviceable, the entire motor/pump must be replaced if indeed it is broke.

Here's something you can try first though, this will indicate if the unit is circulating the water properly. Try placing both spray arms at 12 o'clock position and placing a cup upright in the top rack. If the arms move and the cup fills, you've got circulation...if neither, you don't.

Also be sure the unit is actually filling with water, this image below indicates the normal water level to look for....


Let me know what you find and I'll try and help you move forward from there. If you need direction to remove the circulation motor and pump I can do that, but it is a pretty involved repair and requires pulling the unit from the cabinet. Check those other possibilities first and tell me what you find.

I'll watch for your reply.

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 electrical...safety 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 operation...it 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.

the pump is plugged possibly, remove the hose from the drain at the sink and using a garden hose, back flush it and it might spark it back to life. help me help others, if this is what fixed you up, please tell me or tell me what you found was the problem. thanx Jay the pool pump motor repair guy longwood florida

This is located in the bottom base of the machine. An isopor float, under a microswitch.
