When I turn my Asko dishwasher cycle on, the dishwasher fills with water and then stops completely about a minute later. All of the red lights appear as if the cycle were done, but it hasn't even released the dishwashing liquid yet.
The dishwasher worked fine for a few weeks after I had it installed. I don't know what happened.
What you are describing is called an overfill. Sometimes programming, soap usage or installation can cause this. ASKO Customer Service will be able to give you troubleshooting tips and will most likely be able to fix this issue right over the phone as this is typically an easy fix. You can contact the ASKO Customer Care Group at 1-800-898-1879. They are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for your convenience.

Check if the other functions of the dishwasher are OK such us when filling, draining or the heating element heats up properly. The control board may have detected some errors and it is not proceeding. You may have to have the parts involved in the faulty function checked out such as the valves for the drain and the fill if your machine is not filling or draining properly or filters blocked. Check the heating element and inspect the assembly for burns especially on the relays. The machine may not be heating correctly that is why it is not finishing the cycle. If these parts checks out OK, you may want to have the control board checked out or replaced.
It sounds as if the main program board has developed a fault - as it should come to a complete stop. The fact it kept the water valve open with the door open is a serious fault- so I would have it checked before using it again.
Most machines have a water-stop feature - so if it develops a leak - it will shut off the water. This clearly didn't happen.
If when turned on the dishwasher sounds like it is running the drain pump, and does this in any cycle setting, it is possible that the drain pan below the unit has filled with water. Check this post for more details.
Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water
shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to
the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill
cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the
bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in
which case replace the water valve if found to be defective.
do they flash lik all on one side then the other? Start a cycle, then open the door. Do the lights flash the same way when you open the door as when it stops? if soyou may have a door that needs to be adjusted so it closes better. when the cycle ends, is there any standing water in the bottom? if so you may have a poorly routed drain hose or a partial clog in it. Last, pull the bottom panels off and look inside the bottom of the dishwasher and see if there is standing water down there . If ther is you have aleak somewhere or a bad drain pump. You r only other choice is a bad pressure switch. If youve already adjusted the water fil to the proper level ( just up to the grey plastic housing that the lower wash arm sits on) tehre really aernt any more options. Hope this helps!
