20 Most Recent Asko D1876 Dishwasher Questions & Answers

The F2 error means the tray underneath the unit has filled with water. You will need to pull out the dishwasher (remove 2 screws at top left/right when door open that prevent tilting). Unplug and pull out dishwasher. Remove 4 screws on bottom rear panel and you will see tray underneath. Sponge out water and F2 error will reset.
However, you should not get water in this tray. There may be a faulty valve, pump or leaking pipe. Run diagnostic mode (described in user manual) to see if leak occurs during filling, draining or circulating.

You will more than likely find that the holes in the arms are clogged with food you will need to remove these and unblock all the holes on both arms and replace them the arms usually come of by unclipping or on some machines there is a nut at the base centre of the arm wich you will need to unscrew first then pull them off.after you have unblocked and cleaned the arms then replace and it should work.All this above is assuming the machine is takeing on water to check this start the machine give it about 3 or 4 minutes and check if water is in the machine if there is then do the above if no water then let me know and we can investigate further.

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description and provided the dishwasher is indeed 1) an Asko 1875 and 2) filling with water, draining, heating, but not circulating, It sounds like a busted wash impeller within the main motor/circulation pump, unfortunately.

First though, do you hear a quiet sound of the wash motor starting once the unit has completed filling with water ? And be sure the unit is actually filling with water, this image below indicates the normal water level to look for....


The pump will be super quiet if the wash impeller is broke as I suspect it may be...almost like a fountain, since the Asko are very quiet under normal conditions. You will have to either get right down with your ear to the bottom or run it with the door open by activating the door switch with a screw-driver and look for visual/audible clues.

If so that is a tell tale of no wash action yet the motor runs, hence broken impeller. If you don't hear anything it may be a wire come off the main motor/circulation pump...but not likely.

This unfortunately is common with Asko built dishwasher`s and it is a case of being a victim of their own design.

What happens typically is the ball-bearings from the upper rack holders ( which are plastic, hence fatigues due to heat and fall apart ) come out making their way into the sump, hence breaking the wash impeller from the motor.

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...you may opt to call in a pro.

I'll watch for your reply and try to help in any manner I can.

sounds like your main circulation pump is not working, if it is humming when it is supposed to start, sounds like it is getiing power, so probably not the control circuits, can you measure voltage to pump?
if you are getting 120 there, probably pump motor is dead

Welcome to FixYa.

Yes the upper rack is pretty straight forward, but the bearings are tricky.

Here's what works for me, move the rack stops to the left if you haven't already and then the rack itself.

Now you'll need to remove the bumpers at the back of the rack rail...


push down on the bumper as shown

and pull it down and out at the same time...it takes some force as evident by my finger tip ha ha, you can use a small screwdriver...I'm just stubborn.

Now you'll need to slide the rail all the way out as shown, but careful not to let the ball bearings fall into the sump area in the process.

I usually hold the broken piece in place while removing the rail...


The trick now is to install the balls into the holders first...

and the holders into the stationary part of the rail on the inside wall...


The inside wall rail will keep the holders in place as you slide the inside rail into place...this will usually require holding the holder with one hand while pushing the sliding rail back into place...


Once this is done, re-install the back rail bumpers followed by the rack and then finally the front rack stoppers and that should do it.

Hope that explain it for you or gives you an idea of how it needs to be done.

Thanks for visitng "fixya" today for your repair help. Let me know if you require further assistance.

Good luck.

I should also mention you as I alluded to, be sure none of the old 8 ball bearings didn't fall down into either the drain pump or circulation/wash pump. This is something I've seen far too often on Asko dishwashers with the end result being a broken impeller in either pump...or both, yikes ! I use a telescopic magnet to fish around as it will be the only object made of metal...unless something else has fallen in the sump well area, it's good to check.

Again, good luck :)

You have water in the bottom pan.Turn off power Remove bothe front and rear lower panels and dry out pan with a towel after tipping water from pan. Turn on power and try operating the washer and look for water leak. It could be coming from a number of places. The repair will be what ever is the cause of the leak. F 2 = water in the pan. Hope this helps. Rgd Robocam
