Did you ever figure out what was wrong? And how to fix it? Mine is now doing the same thing.

Hello, welcome to fixya

Here's what works for me, take the lower basket out and set it aside to give yourself a more work friendly environment. Now move the rack stops to the left if you haven't already and then the rack itself...example




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

push down on the bumper as shown


and pull it down and out at the same time...it takes some force, you can use a small screwdriver.


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...


...( they come in a kit at "repairclinic.com" under number 1394379 like shown here individual holders # 8058638-77 from the link I pasted below at allvikingparts )



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. Please take a moment to rate the assistance I provided here today favorable and a brief testimony is also appreciated when providing free solutions.

Thanks for visiting "fixya" today for your repair help and good luck. Let me know if you require further assistance.

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.

depends on what he is required to do to gain access to the control panel. if you are handy with tools and are comfortable doing the repair... buy the part and replace it yourself.

Let’s assume the dishwasher is working correctly because it turns on but nothing else works. If a dishwasher does not fill with water at the correct level, it will not continue to advance. You’re not getting water. Check hot water valve under sink. The one for dishwasher. Maybe someone shut it off on accident. Also,
Water deposits like lime, calcium will build up and clog the screen on the dishwasher’s hot water intake valve.
That would need cleaned out. The valve itself will go bad alone. Regardless, once it’s getting water the dishwasher will run. Please let me know!!
