Question about Asko D1796FI Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Restarting The machine came up with an F2 problem, which was most likely caused by the kitchen sink blocking. Have cleaned all the filters and the pipes, but the machine will not restart seems to be stuck on the F2 and just returns to that after going through all the instructions.

You need to remove the lower toe kick plate, then remove the guard plate behind that (will tak a t-20 or t-15 torx bit to do this) and drain the water that has most likely collected under there caused by the sink backing up. You can use a wet vac or just soak it up with a towel. If there is no water down there, and you do not hear the drain pump run for a few seconds when you start a cycle, teh you need a drain pump. It is located on the left behind the plate you just removed, and just twists out. look at the new one to see where the locking tab is. Good Luck!

I have a kid 60s20 it is showing F2 and all the red lights are flashing

F2 relates to a blocked drain pipe or pump.
Remove the grate at the bottom of the dishwasher and give the filter a clean, and make sure nothing is blocking the sump.
Next check the waste pipe from the washer going into the sink hasn't become blocked, and the drain its connected to hasn't backed up.
Once checked switch the appliance back on and run an economy or rinse cycle and see if you get the same fault.

My washer wont spin,what could be the problem?The lid lock light flashes.

something too do with the pump
or your waist

you must make sure all is clean and clear
under the sink pumps filters and the waist too the sink or flow away

if the lid light flashes perhaps the machines door interlock has failed

i recond if any machine wont lock on request then the interlock isnt right...
perhaps if your not sure ask a tech too test and perhaps replace the interlock device.... this can also be caused by a motor
but i think its the filters and waist easy too clean and fix

so clean all the filters
and the pump perhaps a clothes wires are in the pump boken up or a coin once cleaned and your sure the waist is cleaned
then apply mains again too the machine and try a blank cycle {no washing no cry... is the rule ...}

then once it works and completes they try a load

if it works magic like most its a pump or waist issue
some are past there sink and heavy flap or there ~u bend is blocked up

Check the door is closing correctly, Check the seals on the door also.

Note: Electricity can cause serious injury even Death.
Isolate your power supply from the mains switchboard.
Switch off and Unplug your appliance from the wall socket before attempting any repairs.

After Isolating your appliance from the main switchboard,
Check the filters for water in and out of the dishwasher. make sure you have turned the power off first.
Check the outlet trap under your sink, if this is where the dishwasher drains to... (the drain pipe in your sink) this could be blocked and is easy to take off and clean out.
This could be blocked / obstructed with buildup grime from the dishwasher.
After cleaning the filters/ Checking the water supply and restarting the Dishwasher and you get the same error message you will need to call a serviceman to analyze the problem further. DO NOT attempt to dismantle the Dishwasher yourself unless you are a registered electrician or a qualified serviceman.
If its still under warranty call the manufacturer or the store it was purchased from, they can arrange a serviceman for you.
Good luck and Take Care

Aquarius wml560g f2 f4 and door lock lights on. nothing happens.

f2 is motor tacho detached / motor jamed f4 pressure switch jammed on empty if there is still water in your washer its proberly the filter blocked or the pressure chamber the motor tacho registed the fault on to the computer because it could not turn at full speed the fault would indecate to me that if you clean your blockage in the pump / filter /presure chamber also if you have your washer drain hose connected under your sink take that of and check also

Hot water flow is fine to the bath but to the bathroom basin and downstairs kitchen sink it is just a trickle. We recently had a new kitchen fitted and the problem has arisen since.

Check the end of the tap where the water comes out, if there is a fine filter on there it may be blocked, unscrew the end where the filter is and clean, if clean you have a restriction in the pipes

My Asko dishwasher is not draining. Code F2

drain plugged, hose kinked or discharge pump bad

Blocked sink maybe equalls non spin or drain of washer

It depends on where the sink is blocked, and how the washing machine plumbing is set up.

If the sink is blocked in the p-trap under the sink, and the washing machine does not drain to that trap, then it's a separate problem.

That being said, if this is in fact the way the washing machine is plumbed, then it indicates that there is not an air gap between the washing machine hose and the drain. There must be an air gap or the washer will likely not drain, regardless of how it is plumbed to the sink or not.

Reply back with further information, or if you need clarification. But yes, the sink being plugged could be the cause of the washer problem, or may just be coincidental and not have anything to do with it.


This normally shows blockage in hose , assuming you have checked and cleaned filter.Glass sherd was the problem with mine , first time then second was block outlet hose cause by backup of garb.Glass was in system at least 4 months before it moved in outlet hose and stopped full drainage.


seems to be a problem with the filter. was with mine.. one thing i always forget to clean it regularly.
Be careful when open the little hatch thingie , there will be water coming out . so prepare with a bakingtray and kitchen towels. and open it SLOWLY!!! so the water doesnt totally soak the floor.
then clean clogged up filter. at least that solved the problem in my case, hope it works
