Machine drains and dial turns directly to S after filling with water.
My Asko washing (W620) machine is 6 years old. When starting the cycle, the water fill happens. ~15 seconds after the water has finished entering machine, the dial begins turning and the machine drains. The dial lands on the "S" position and that is it. Another clue is the water that drains out the machine is stone cold.
The "S" position in the manual gives no other troubleshooting instructions except call a service techincian. I'd rather save my pennies.
My guess is that the heating element is not working. Upon finding the water is not reaching temperature for wash the machine defaults to "S" while draining. This assumes there is a temperature monitoring switch that tells the machine to begin wash. Can anyone confirm this for me or suggest another likely problem?

Re: Machine drains and dial turns directly to S after...
Moe thasn likly you have a pressure switch that is either telling the machine its too full and making it drain or its not seeing the switch and so it drains. Another possibility ids the machine is leaking. Pull the lower cover off and make sure there is no water in the bottom. These askos have a float switch down there that will run the drain if the sense water leaking into the lower tray. Last but not least, you could have a bad timer. these timers are covered for 5 years (parts only) from date of installation. The first 4 digits of the serial # will tell yuo when the machine was made the firts 2 are the year and the second 2 are the week of that year (so a serial beginning in 0145 woul;d mean built in the 45th week of 2001 and so on. Good luck!

Probably a blockage in the drain hose at the back of the machine. Easy to fix. Turn machine off then pull machine out so you can easily access behind. Have bowls and cloths/rags at hand for water spillage. The drain hose is located low down and links into your sink drain, it is held in place by a clip. Remove the clip and hose. This will start to drain the machine so make sure you have enough vessels to catch the water. When the water has stopped draining, check the hose for blockages : buttons / coins / hair grips / paper etc. Also check the hole where the hose attaches to the machine. Remove items then blow through the hose to see if there are any other restrictions. If all clear then replace hose on back of machine. Clear up. Move machine back to normal position. Switch on and set to spin. When complete, the machine should shut off cycle and unlock door. This will save you at least 100 pounds on a call-out. Good luck.
can you start the unit without any clothes in it, let it fill with water as usual and then observe if it tumbles in both directions during the wash cycle ? ( I don't mean the entire cycle, just long enough to insure it rotates in both direction ). Then turn it to drain and insure it drains completely, observe the spin cycle if you can and report if it only spins in one direction slowly. This will go a long way in diagnosing your Asko washer.
Let me know what you find. If it only goes one way, the motor needs new brushes and possibly a complete motor if the armiture is damaged.
start the wash machine empty and see if it happens when nothing is in it. 2. When machine is off, open the top grab the centerpiece inside the wash machine and pull and push it slowly, does it move? (For safety unplug the machine) 3. Make sure machine is 100% level (front to back, left to right)
The most common thing is bad drum bearing, which force the wash machine out of whack when in spin / wash. Which are common and the best thing is to call Maytag.

Sounds like your fill solenoid has stuck in the open position. There are 3 #20 Torx fittings along the back and you can lift off the top panel. The solenoid will be in the back left side.
I would shut off your house water supply to the machine and then do a voltage check to see if the solenoid is remaining energized. Another more simple option is to give the device a few light taps as some debris may have become trapped inside and caused it to become stuck open.
Try to Open the safety compartment using a screwdriver under the wash machine in the front. Then open the big white knodb this will cause the wate to drain out which is fine. Then clean this out. Usually you will find coins and stuff here from years of operations from pockets. clear these out and your problem maybe fixed. worked for us
Sounds like the motor brushes need to be cleaned or replaced. Take the back off the washer, remove the motor and gently scrape the excess carbon or debris off the brushes with a pocket knife. I did this and it ran well for about 50 loads before building back up. I am ordering new brushes now because when I checked the brushes last week they were obviously worn more than 4 weeks ago.
ON THIS MACHINE WHEN IT AGGITATES MOTOR ROTATES ONE DIRECTION, WHEN IT PUMPS OUT AND SPINS IT ROTATES THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION. YOUR MACHINE IS ROTATING THE WRONG DIRECTION WHEN IT FILLS., INDICATING THAT THE TIMER IS SENDING VOLTAGE TO WRONG WIRES. SOLUTION , REPLACE TIMER.
PS: MAKE SURE ALL WIRES ARE PLUGGED IN TO MOTOR. WHILE THIS IS UNLIKELY , I HAVE SEEN THIS BE THE PROBLEM.
