Question about Asko 24 in. D3112 Free-Standing Dishwasher
Hi, we have an Asko D3120 dishwasher that had a blocked pipe and the overfill protection was tripped. I've cleared the pipe and the water immediately pumped out of it. Now when I plug it back in the pump is still running and can't be stopped. Pushing the power button on the machine has no impact nor do any of the other buttons. The only way to stop it is to unplug it from the mains. I've run Asko and they tell me it requires a service techinician at a cost of $95 per 15 minutes plus parts. Since I know the problem was a blocked pipe and now it's not blocked I'm hesitant to pay a technician to come and 'reset' the machine. Does anyone know how I can reset it myself or what needs to happen for it to register that the problem is now resolved?
Ok, heres what you have to do. Remove the lower toe kick and then remove the panel behind that to gain entry to the lower portion of the dishwasher wher the guts are. You will also have to pull out the little brackets that hold the toe kick and all the screws will be t-15 or t-20 torx (little star shaped bits) Once you have all the panels out of the way, you will find water in the bottom of the tray there tripping the overflow switch. Remove the water with a wet vac or towel or something and the drain pump will stop running. If you can't or don't want to do all this, then just let the dishwasher sit for a few days or so and eventually the water will just evaporate and everything will work normally. Hope This Helps!

I didn't have the proper screw driver to remove the back of the machine (we have a d3121), so 1). i soaked up as much of the water as i could from inside the washer, 2). i lay towels around the machine, 3). then i tipped it (not all the way - i dont think that would be good for the machine), and kept it at a slant until the water stopped flowing. once the water was all out, i replugged the dishwasher and presto. Good as new! saved myself $95+parts (rip off!!!).

We have Asko D3120 and experienced the same problem, pump would not shut off no matter which buttons we pushed. I tipped the dishwasher (after disconnecting it), some water leaked out and after that it started working fine! Thanks for the tips!

I had the same problem as all of you above, pump would not shut off on ASKO D3121 dishwasher. Loosened machine and tiped it forward (caution : water will be everywhere - be ready with shop vac)
Vacumed all the water inside to reset the switch and we are back to business - NO expensive service call!!!

I can vouch for the overfill protection solution. I have a Asko 1385, dried the overfill pan, and Whala!! worked just fine. Otherwise the pump just kept running and wouldn't shut off. Thanks for the tip!!!

OK I just had the same issue with an Asko d 3120. Bought the house from a "contractor/developer" - read Flipper
taking the dishwasher out was an all day affair.
I actually unscrewed the food screen thing, and felt the water in the bottom of the hole.
Get any thin tube and a pump. I actually used a dispensing pump from a fiberglass resin kit, but think push down ketchup pump at the ball park, or any smaller pump. (A large syringe might work as well.
Draw out as much water as you can (you have to angle the tube a little left) .
reconnect power, and works fine.
Not sure If I got all the water i needed out (will know tomorrow i bet) but sure beats removing and tipping the machine.
Anybody know how much water pools to activate this thing? I got like 8 ozs out.

Called for a repair man today after trying the above and waiting a week. The girl taking my call was very helpful, and instructed me to tilt the machine first to empty it, however, she strongly recommended the machine be tilted backwards - not forward!, in order to avoid water getting into the electonics at the lower front.
Unfortunately that didn't do the job - so I'm now waiting for the repair man-

I had the same problem with my Asko D3120. I fixed it by doing the following: 1) Unplug the power (only way to stop the pump) 2) Remove the filters from the bottom of the machine (from the inside) 3) Use a sponge to remove as much waste water as I could from the drain area at the bottom. 4) Return the filters. 5) Plug in the power My dishwasher returned to normal :-)

All good advice if you don't mind having a go yourself and saving an expensive call out.
If you delve into the insides though do remember to unplug the dishwasher at the wall as you get very close to the live bits.
Also to get the panel behind the kick plate off you might have to remove the door panel first. That's not hard but getting it back on can be tricky. Make sure the panel is pushed right up to the plastic top part (where the control buttons are) so that the top two fixings screw into the metal tab on the door panel not just the platic bit.

Thank you all of the above (and google for finding this) ! My ASCO D3120 drain pump started continually running tonight and I couldn\'t stop it (except pulling the power cord out). After reading the above and thinking it was the overflow float switch from your same symptoms, I removed the toe plate and extra panel with 6 "star" crews relatively easily as I have a million tool gadgets to get into difficult places. Then I made up a small syringe connected to a thin rubber tube so it could reach the water tray and sucked out about 1.5L of water from the bottom tray (25mls at a time through the syringe). When i couldn\'t suck out any more water from the bottom tray (it was still wet), i switched it back on and it goes fine. Hello from Tauranga NZ ! I love my ASCO dishwasher.

SOURCE: ASKO Overfill protection tripped
Remove the backpanel of the machine, and look if there is water at the bottom of the machine. If so, use a towel or so to dry up the water. This should solve the prob.
