Asko 3230 dishwasher - not powering up

Just had a run of issues with our Asko dishwasher. After having the service guy out twice he finally found a leak in the outlet hose. Now the machine does not power up when you hit the on button. It might work for 2-3 days perfectly then next time the power button does nothing. Dont really want to wait another week for a service guy so any suggestions appreciated.

You dont really need to turn the power to the unit off. Just leav it on till you can get the swithc replaced.They are kind of difficult to do, and you can break the control panel if you dont know what you are doing. i leave mine on all the time. Good Luck!

I have an asko d3251 dishwasher that won't stop running. The device in the drain that spins won't stop. I had to shut the power off to the unit.


Our unit had leaking connection on outlet side of fill solenoid valve. Any leak will cause water to accumulate in base pan. there is a float switch in base pan as a safety mechanism when water is in pan it causes a styrofoam float to rise and make contact with switch. This tells machine there is a leak creates error code to run pump continuously until water is removed from base. Disconnet electric from unit first. you must pull dishwasher out to get at back panel. Remove lower back panel to get access to mechanicals of unit. Once you remove panel you should see water in pan. If you see water that is most likely same issue we had. soak up excess water or tilt unit to drain water out of pan. once water is gone unit should start normally. If you look underneath while unit starts up - don't touch anything while unit is connected to electricity! You should notice where water is coming from. Our unit leaked at hose connection from outlet side of solenoid fill valve. connector is a plastic cam-lock fitting with a flow sensor integrated into it. there is an o-ring between the two parts. it comes apart with a very small amount of counter-clockwise motion. perhaps only five or ten degrees of indexing and it falls right off. it is a very flimsy connection for the main water line. the o-ring on our unit Was slightly deformed and not seated correctly. could have been from original installers 4 years earlier! Asko needs to re-design this part. I replaced o-ring and unit is working again however I do not trust that this fitting will hold up over time. Very poor design in my opinion. Other design flaw I noticed while looking at mechanicals is circulating pump isolation mount is not in correct location for pump motor. rubber mount is stressed to the point of almost tearing off! No way for me to correct this since location of mount does not match position of motor. We will not replace this unit with another ASKO when it goes.

Pump keeps running even with door open..had to shut breaker off to stop...


Hi
Your machine has been leaking water and the flood switch has been triggered, whereby the machine goes into a continuous pump cycle.

Pull the machine out. Make sure you disconnect water hoses (both inlet and outlet) and power cord to free them up before pulling machine out. There will be two screws either going from the inside walls of machine or from the inside roof of machine. When you open dishwasher door you will see the two holes on the side walls or the top of machine. There may be a black rubber plug covering them. These screws secure the machine to your kitchen cabinet.
When you pull machine out tip the machine on its back. NOTE:Make sure you throw plenty of towls on the floor as there will be water pouring out of the machine.
Check to make sure the drain/outlet hose is not ruptured or burst. This is very common.
Reconnect machine preferably while it is out so that you can view the hoses while machine is running.
On the back of the machine are some hex screws which you can undoe to open back plate where hoses come out of. Run machine with back plate open. Be mindful of live electric cords on the inside of machine. Have a torch handy. If there is a leak you will see it. Also note hose connections to your washpump which sits at the back of machine. I have seen them leak as well.
Ask me if you have any questions.

My asko dishwasher will not turn off. The pumps runs but nothing happens. The dial has no control over the machine at all. I have turned off the breaker but wonder should I order parts or can it. We...


Hello Steve,

Welcome to FixYa.

As an Asko expert and based on your post, the good news...I can fairly confidently tell you It is likely nothing very serious, but the "resolve" requires some investigation on your part.

What the pump running continuous means is the timer has indicated a overfill.


**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. There will likely be water present.

With the aid of a sponge, towels, or a wet-dry shop vacuum, absorb the water from the base, that should restore normal operation...it should be known that if you leave the unit for a few days, the water in the base will evaporate hence appearing as everything is fine again...if any other problem/leak does exist it will return.

If the unit works fine after resetting the power/breaker and soaking up any water present, it can likely be chalked up to a drain back-up or obstruction in the drain hose or pump...
(it could mean a faulty drain pump so you'll need to pay close attention the next few times you run it)

**The float is primarily the last ditch safety to prevent disaster in the event of a overflow, back-flow, or leak underneath the unit and the continuous pumping is
letting you know to service or call for service to the unit**

Hope this helps move you forward, or even better resolves the issue altogether. Let me know of course, I will help you move further if necessary.

Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Our Asko dishwasher no longer cleans the top shelf of dishes properly. Fine white and black grit is left on the dishes after every wash, and if there is any food residue on the dishes it does not come off....


The problem is most likely that there is still water residue at the bottom of your machine. If the machine is not fully drained it picks up some of the residue and sprays that onto the dishes during the final rinse, leaving an unhealthy and unsightly film on everything.
Remove the bottom strainers and make sure that there is nothing obstructing the outlet pipe and the pump. If possible back flush through the outlet pipe and try draining the machine again before using it again.

Check also that the arm outlet jets at the trailing end of the arms are not blocked with food particles and other solid matter. This often happens and the arm is unable to turn because the water jet that is supposed to drive the arm does not have the force to rotate it.

Asko D1796F1 builtin...lights are on but no one is home


Our Asko D1796 dishwasher has the lights on the panel working as usual but you can't select a cycle and it won't turn on. We unplugged the pipe. If we turn it off and wait for 12+ hours we have gotten it to work twice.

Asko dishwasher 1475 indicates high water level


The "High Water Level" in the machine can be triggered not only by the Styrofoam operated switch in the safety tray under the machine's tub, but also by the Overfill Pressure Switch pictured here

My previous post describes the erratic behavior this switch can cause. It seemed almost at random, the "High Water Level" condition would occur in whatever cycle I used.

0643b5b.jpg

It is easily located at the end of a small rubber hose visible when the kick panel and service covers are removed. Look just above where the electrical power terminal block is. The switch is held in place by the clip protruding from the top (as shown in the picture above). The sides of the clip need to be pressed towards the center to release the switch. I simply rotated the switch until the clip was turned to the longer side of the rectangular hole it clips in to. It then just fell out.

This pressure switch triggers the drain pump when too much water enters the machine, but it can malfunction and will keep the drain pump running "forever" until you turn off the breaker. Unfortunately, until the problem is rectified, the dishwasher "remembers" what it was doing when you disconnected the power and when you re apply power, the drain pump will again start draining your already empty dishwasher.

I pulled the connectors attached to the spade terminals on the switch back a bit and then forward as far as they would go ensuring all the wires had continuity from the terminal to the opposite end of the wire it was attached to. When I re applied the power, the empty dry dishwasher attempted to start up where it left off in the cycle it was on, but the "High Water Level" conditioned cleared. Pressing and holding the single button opposite the light left on canceled the cycle and the machine went into standby as it should.

I hope this helps someone else. Until I "Googled" the part number printed on the switch, I didn't know what triggered the "overfill" or "High Water Level" condition.

Part number on the part was 8058475. I also found out the small hose attached is part number 8058500. The small hose is not as readily available as the pressure switch, so extra care should be used when handling it.
