When the maching is on the spinning cycle, (it spins at 1400 rpm) it sometimes makes a sound like a hose has come off somewhere in the maching, its a bit hard to describe, sort of sounds like a bit like an air hose, like something has come undone, and then the machine still spins but also makes a clicking sound until I turn it off, and the words -
Wash Motor Fault - come up in the display panel, it does not happen every time I do a load, it happened approx 2 weeks ago and I turned everything off as I was finished then have been using it since then, everything seems to be ok but I noticed this morning that when the maching is in the washing cycle it seemed to be making a sort of scraping sound, the maching has just finished a complete cycle and nothing happened again....only the scraping sound when washing. Has anyone out there got access to an Asko W640 workshop manual anywhere that may be able to help me. Apart from this problem it has been a great maching. I would be very grateful if someone couldl help. Thankyou Stells

Re: Spin cycle trouble
Possibly a segment has raised on the motor armature or a faulty motor brush. pop off the belt and put it into a spin cycle to see if you still hear the noise- if so the fault is with the motor as the drum will be still.
any scraping sounds in the drum may be a lost bra wire.

Probably needs the filter cleaning.
Remove lower rear panel.
Remove large black hose onto drum.
Remove and clean filter inside hose.
Remove hose onto pump, and check for obstruction here and in the pump itself.

Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping/or sound during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.
Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.
Hi Paul, Assuming it is pumping out ok, Unplug the machine tip it back at an angle, underneath you will see a black hose that is attached to the bottom of the drum, remove this, take out the ball and discard it and remove anything that may be in the filter, replace the hose and try the machine.
