Press & hold drain/spin. Controls will unlock. Then press spin, to spin out the water.

Hopefully you got them out, but I have the same problem. The woman on the phone in the service station said to unplug the machine for about 20 minutes and then plug it back in. I did that but it didn't work. I kept asking the machine to drain and spin and finally the door latch released. Good luck.

Door on asko d5424 will not open and has 3 horizontal lines three times on display

When the door on your Asko D5424 dishwasher won't open and you see three horizontal lines displayed three times, it indicates a possible error condition. Here's what you can try:

Power Cycle: Turn off the dishwasher by unplugging it or switching off the circuit breaker for a few minutes. Then, plug it back in or turn on the circuit breaker to reset it.

Wait for Drain Cycle: Sometimes, the door lock mechanism may not release immediately after a cycle. Wait for about 10-15 minutes to see if the door unlocks after the drain cycle completes.

Check for Obstructions: Inspect the area around the door for any objects that may be preventing it from opening fully. Ensure there are no dishes or utensils blocking the door.

Inspect Door Latch: Check if the door latch is functioning properly. If it's stuck or jammed, gently try to release it using a tool or your fingers. Be careful not to damage the latch or the surrounding area.

Check for Error Codes: If the three horizontal lines persist on the display, it could indicate an error code. Refer to the dishwasher's manual to interpret the error code and take appropriate action.

Contact Customer Support: If the issue persists despite trying the above steps, it's best to contact Asko's customer support or a qualified technician for further assistance. They can diagnose the problem and provide recommendations for resolving it safely.

What opens the soap dispenser door

Hello. In most dishwashers, there is a special type of actuator device attached to the detergent dispenser to make the door open and then, during the rinse cycle, initiate the introduction of rinse agent into the tub. A wax motor (see the attached link below) is connected through a small wiring harness to the main control board. The name comes from how the motor operates--it has a slug of wax inside that, when heated, expands and pushes a lever which pops the latch on the dispenser door. Then, a two-position cam attached to the lever sets itself in position for the next actuation--the introduction of rinse agent. When the motor heats up the wax again, the cam allows the lever to push open the small valve on the rinse aid tank briefly so that a small amount of the liquid can drain into the tub and help remove excess water from the clean dishes during the rinse phase of the cycle. I hope I helped you!

I was washing beach towels and during the rinse/spin cycle the door popped open on my whirlpool duet ht (model GHW9400PL4). I haven't been able to close the door since it opened before the cycle was...

those have a 2 latch system, sounds like the second latch that engages during the spin cycle never quite completed the safety lock , you could try and jumper the latch to see if that would release it, But it seems the secondary latch wasn't working properly in the first place, even the heaviest loads shouldn't pop the door open,

Door remains locked after cycle ended

Possible that the safety link lever is not disengaging . The program is not fully completing to release or the lever is stuck within the loading door latch.
you will need to look at releasing by using a scewdriver from below , the oil and set after inspection of the latch.

How do I release the top so it will open - I don't want to chip the enamal

The clips are released by sliding a putty knife between the lid and body.
There are two clips about 3 inches in from the corners in the front between the top and front panel.
You push a putty knife into the space between the top and front panel about 3in in from corners and lift the front of the top.

Self cleaning oven lever

you may have damaged the lever by not waiting for the mechanism to release after cleaning, or improperly locked it during clean. You may be able to fix this by taking the door latch aprt and realigning the latch, do not force it, as it may break at the handle

Soap dispenser

It sounds like the soap dispenser flap is stuck or the latch is broken. Try to see if it can be manually opened to loosen it. How long do you wait before starting the dishwasher after the soap is placed in the dispenser? Check and see if the cover opens even a little during the wash cycle?

There could be a problem with the solenoid that opens the soap dispenser. I don't know of the part number for this. You'd have to call Bosch or check their website.

F code appears, can't reset any functions

Adele, there are 13 different F-codes for this model. You will have to be more specific so we would be able to help you. In the meantime, unplug the washer from the wall, remove the bottom toe panel. On the inside of the front panel to the right locate the bottom of the door latch assy. There will be a teardrop shaped tab on it. Pull the tab down about 1/4 inch. The door will release.
