Re: Asko 1796 F2 problem
It sound like you have a blocked or a malfunction pump.
Remove the pump from the machine and check whether you have a clogged inside the pump or in one of the pipes connected to it.
In case all is clean, you should replace the pump..
Good luck !

Welcome to FixYa.
To answer your question..."What does F2 mean ?", the good news...It is likely nothing very serious, but the "resolve" requires some investigation on your part.
F2 means the control has indicated a overfill. This is meaning the overfill switch is indicating an overfill has been detected. Whether the unit has actually overfilled or not remains to be seen. It may in fact have been caused by a long drain or backed up drain.
I'm presently on my iphone so I can't post the pertinent info to resolve the error directly, however if you copy and paste this link to your browser all the info will be there and it will apply to your model Asko as well.
Either that or visit my profile page and you'll see other post relating to the Asko F2 error, its meaning and remedy.
Hope this helps, let me know and good luck.
Based on your description "f2 overfill. how to reset?" It is likely nothing very serious.
The "F2" with Asko dishwashers means the control is indicating an overfill has been detected...but I gather you know that based on your post. Whether the unit has actually overfilled or not remains to be seen, but to reset it is fairly simple...if nothing else is at fault.
**before proceeding turn the dishwasher power off via the home breaker panel, or unplug it from the wall if that is possible...most are hard wired to the home electrical...safety first**
The first thing to do is remove the toe panel/kick plate and inspect the base for water. If water is present, with the aid of a sponge, towels, or a wet-dry shop vacuum, absorb the water from the base.
By way of removing the water from the overfill basin should "reset" the unit. If the unit works fine after resetting the power/breaker it can likely be chalked up to a drain back-up or obstruction in the drain hose or pump.
Try this and let me know what you find and I`ll assist you in moving forward if necessary.
The F2 error means the tray underneath the unit has filled with water.
You will need to pull out the dishwasher (remove 2 screws at top left/right when door open that prevent tilting).
Unplug and pull out dishwasher.
Remove 4 screws on bottom rear panel and you will see tray underneath.
Sponge out water and F2 error will reset.
However, you should not get water in this tray. There may be a faulty valve, pump or leaking pipe.
Run diagnostic mode (described in user manual) to see if leak occurs during filling, draining or circulating.
Hi Thanks for using FixYa. Error F2 in your Asko
Dishwasher means high water level. This error occurs due to plugged/bad water
pump and/or a bad inlet valve. If the water pump and/or water inlet valve are
bad it should be replaced to resolve this issue. Please do rate the solution
if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance. Thanks Rylee
