Question about Asko 24 in. 1895 Built-in Dishwasher

2 Answers

Fan in/on dishwasher keeps running - even after cycle is finished

I bought a house that has the 1885/1895 dishwasher. For the past 3 years the washer has run like and charm... still is. But now the fan on the inside of the door (behind a panel in the upper left) will not shut off. I've tried running the whole cycle - still won't shut off. Flipping the breaker - and when the power comes back on - the fan comes right back on. I've tried clearing out the settings - the fan still won't shut off. It has been running none stop for 3 weeks now and makes me crazy. Can you please offer a solution? Thank you.

    I have the same problem with a model 1595. Any new solutions? Is the circuit board repairable....I can solder with the best of 'em!

    Is there a schematic available for download?



    THANKS!

I have seen this problem before and there are only 2 things you can do about it. 1: take the outer panel off the door to gain acess to the wiring and unplug the fan (it will have a slight negative effect on the drying, but not too much) or 2: replace the control board. The part is about $350-$450 (depending on which board it takes) and that doesn't even include the labor if you cant do it yourself. The only place I know of to get parts for these in the U.S. is american appliance 303 777 0993. If the unit is less than 5 years old, the board is still covered under a parts warranty. Look at your serial nuber on the inner edge of the door to determine when it was built. The first two digit are the year it was made ( so an 01 would be 2001 etc) and the second two digits are the week (so 45 would be the 45th week of the year) HOpe this helps!

    There is now a recall on all asko models ending in the # 5 and the board and wax motor will be replaced by asko at no cost to you. Go to www.askousa.com to find the recall info and set up a service appointment. If you already paid for a board however, they will not reimburse you.

You have to replace the pcb and the wax motor on the fan.if the wax motor is burnt it takes the control board with it.the boards are repairable but you can normally buy a reco board but i would advise using a new one.hope this helps.

Model w10311121b no power

Hi Scott. It appears you have the same dishwasher as mine bought in 2010- it worked sporadically for several years. I bought one year warranty ($289) in Feb2014 . Over 2 months, service technicians replaced 3 parts (user control board, motor control board and water sensor) hoping that each would fix it. They told me to run hot water before starting a wash cycle. Dish washing cycle failures were still sporadic and it finally lost all power in May2014. Service techs would not come out so I confirmed house power supply with a multimeter and then took the door apart to access the latch. I determined the latch kill circuit was not assembled properly and it had carbon buildup which I scraped off.

If your warranty has ended and you attempt this, do not use a power screw driver with these Torx screws as you can easily strip the threads or damage the plastic user control housing by screwing in too far on the top screws. (especially if you forget to reinstall the internal handle which acts as a spacer).

To disassemble: Remove the top 4 screws and top side screws, loosen the middle and lower side screws as needed. Separate the washer door face wide enough to remove the user control board, let it hang by the cord. The handle will be loose in the way, remove it. The latch has a white plastic kill circuit which is held to the latch with tabs. Unplug the circuit and carefully remove it. The circuit comprises 2 flat metal sheets that are pushed together by the latch lever when the door is shut. These plates separate when the door is open to kill washer power. The latch lever should be under both circuit plates with the shorter plate on the bottom. (long plate, short plate, lever, white housing). Reassemble, remember to include the handle My dishwasher operates properly now.

Soap dispensor will not click shut

Your dishwasher, although a Kenmore, was made by GE. Dispensers have been a big issue for them in the past; they actually redesigned them quite a bit 3 to 4 years ago. Is it the kind that slides across to lock in place, or does it fold over like a clamshell? Often there is a little spring that holds the lip in place, and it can easily wear out, allowing dispenser to pop open easily. I would check http://www.searspartsdirect.com for technical information, or possibly go to the http://geappliances.com website to see if they can give more information.

I have a GE Potscrubber dishwasher that only hums, won't run

I have a portable that had the same problem. I called a repairman and he turned a fan blade on the motor. Mine is located on the right side about 12" in. It gets hung up when it is run often enough. If your problem is the same is mine all you have to do is turn the blade and it works like a charm. Hope this helps.

G'day, I have a Miele Dishwasher and I have only had one small problem with it in the 12 years I have own it. That was due to moving house, a bit of fluff had moved and was blocking an outlet. once cleaned with a brush it now works like new again. Best dishwasher on the market, made to last 20 years.

Check your float in the front left corner it may be stuck in the up position and making the dishwasher think is is full of water already.
