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.

Re: Asko 3230 dishwasher - not powering up
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 did research on the net and asko mention a special settings menu in the pdf manuals available
you can download a manual but there is a reference to water not entering the washer in the manual and how to trouble shoot it
Pressure pumps deliver water at pressures from 35 psi to 60 psi and if you have checked all of the slow fill reasons , maybe checking the on/off pressure switch for the pump would be a place to investigate
the machine will start when the water has reached the level set
anyway go google and type in - workshop manual for asko dishwasher model d3530 --and download a pdf version to read
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.
I had tried several failed attempts to fix this problem. Finally I got on my knees and asked God to make the dishwasher run in Christ's name. The dishwasher just completed it's first cycle without any problems.
We were told by an ASKO technician that it has something to do with a balance issue. You could try tilting the machine forward (make sure you've removed side screws into walls first though otherwise you could damage the cupboards).
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.
