Question about Asko D1716 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Stopped working altogether

Checked wires, wire connections, plug and fuse box, all seems fine. I know this because the microwave is plugged into the same outlet. I loaded the dishwasher turned the dial to cycle 5 and nothing, except when i turned the dial the orange light came on and then faded out. I tried a few solutions off your site but still nothing. I kicked it once, tried electric shock but to no avail. It may have gone to dishwasher heaven.

Check the door switch, it may have gone bad or maybe isnt connecting with the catch, making it look dead. They wont do anything when the door is open, as you know. Also remove the lower panels to get to the inside of the dishwasher. Check for power where the cord is plugged into the machine. If you have power, unplug it and look at the terminals to the heaater element. They are on the right side, facing down out of the dishwasher tub. Just look inside the dishwasher to see where the heater goes through, then look in the same place underneath, Check the condition of these connections. The timer gets power through the heater element (strange but true) so if the heater is bad or these connections have heated and melted, it will cause a dead dishwasher. if tis just the connectio, pu t a new terminal on it and you should be good to go. Hope this helps

If it were mine, I would just crimp the wires together and do away with the plug altogether. You could try using some lithium grease but that probably won't do much good. Go with the crimps. A cheap crimping set with crimps and tools are easy to find at $10 or less. Just crimp the wires as they are connected at the plug.

I would guess, I do not know for sure that the fa motor seized and blew the fuse, during the process the internal protection device on the fan motor opened giving you exactly what you are describing.

There can be several fuses. Some on the board and some encapsulated in white plastic along wires. Do the buttons work (beep) when you press them? Is there any sign of life?

After it was plugged, check the end of the wire for any voltage. If there is no voltage, cut the wires 3" away from the plug and replace the plug.

Microwave stopped working, no power. Checked

There are two thermal fuses.

One is located on the magnetron and another one is located on top of the left side of the cavity under the air duct. The microwave has to be removed from the cabinet to access the second one.

The problem turned out to be a 20 amp fuse that I was able to replace and the unit is working fine. Sometimes a blind squirrel finds nuts.

Dead microwave oven

If you have a multimeter and are comfortable with testing "live" circuits, measure to see if there is voltage from chassis ground, to both ends of the fuse, or to each wire connection on the fuse holder.If no voltage, then the problem is very likely the wall plug does not have power (could be a wire broke inside the wall box.).

If there is power, chances are there is a controller board problem. You should have seen a wiring diagram/schematic when you disassembled to replace the fuse.
