    I have had this problem for some time now, and emptying the catch tray can be a little difficult.I have recently found the leak occurs at cycle 5, as the machine refills for the final rinse. the water does not shut off, and of course floods and fills the under tray. Why would the fill not stop at cycle 5, but be OK on other fills? Phill ( Canberra Aust.)

    We have the problem. The repairer from Asko has been out 4 times so far and is booked for a fifth. The waterpump and a valve have been replaced already. It gets stuck in the final rinse, the water trapped in the underpart of the machine is crystal clear (so we know it's not a drain problem from our sink). Whatever is wrong is pretty subtle, the repairer has tried everything he can think of. If you have a solution please help. This is driving us mad!.

    I have the same problem with an Asko 3122. JohnB

    problem is definitly water in the overflow pan. The problem has just happened again but has taken over 12 months to re-occur. its either a very small leak or an infrequent occurance. Either way it was overcome by taking off the kick board , pulling the machine out from the alcove and tilting foward to drain the water ( on the floor ). water was clean, so may be a rinse cycle overfill.
    Hopefully the next episode will be at least another 12 months

    Pretty well one year ago my Asko 3122 bottom tray filled with water and on the last cycle the pump just continually ran trying suck the water out , still cant find this problem

  • Anonymous May 14, 2009

    I had the same problem with my asko 1605. The problem started after I had drained a lot of dishes onto the inside of the door while loading the machine, then closed the door. The water must have drained down under the machine.
    The pump kept running, regardless of what wash setting it was on. I removed the front kicker, then the panel behind ***WARNING - turn off the power at the wall and unplug the unit first - there are lots of exposed connections under! *** Then I tilted it forward and drained the water out. Still pumped after that, so I mopped out all the water INSIDE the dishwasher also, after I had removed the drain screen in the bottom. Put everything back, plug it back in and turn on - it's running now!
    Thanks FIXYA's

There is probably water in the drip pan below that needs to be emptied or evaporated out. but if there is water ther is an internal leak such as a bad hose or door seal thats going to need fixed. The only way to stop the pump is unplug the unit or open up the bottom behind the toe kick and suck out all the water and find the leak by running it with the cover off till you see it. good Luck!

Same issue with mine... Tray fills and the wash cycle will not end. Sponge out the pan, re-set and your good to go for a couple of washes.

On closer look looks like a small leak in a corrigated tube and when the cycle starts a small spray of water leaks out causing the try to re-fill.

Now If I could figure out how to get in there and replace the tube I would be a happy camper.

Well I've been doing dishers by hand for the last 3 weeks, what a pain in the backside. I thought a tech person would cost the earth so I've left it. This morning I got up searched for the how to fix it on the net and after about 2 hours of pulling it out and draining the tray underneath the dishwasher & cleaning the water up. The Asko dishwasher is now doing another load of dishers. Thanks to you all that wrote in.

    Ok this will fix your problem. What causes the dishwasher to do this is because it is in what they call flood mode. The water from your waste disposser has gone up your dishwasher waste and flooded the dishwasher. You need to install a one way value to stop this happening again. The water gets into the lower drip tray and touches the electrics and fuses the brains of it however this is easily overcome by purchasing a $40.00 dollar part. If you remove the front toe recess and then remove the front of the dishwasher nearest the floor you will see image 1 There is a black plug that I have taken a photo of image 2 plug it out and smell it yes smell it, if you can smell that it is burnt then this is the problem you may contact me to purchase the 3 pin plug. Hope this helps all those dishwashers owner washing dishes by hand.

I know this is an old post but people still look these things up. Had and still have the same problem occasionally. It drove me mad for a while till I sat down and watched what was happening. I had no leaks underneath and found the water was overfilling and spilling to the overflow and filling the tray underneath. The problem is the fill sensors (they are thick plastic disks with wires coming out) which are two pressure switches attached underneath and above the overflow pan. They each have a black rubber hose running into them. If either of the hoses gets a blockage or a bubble of air the switch won't register that the fill cycle needs to finish. Unplug the black hose (MAKE SURE THE POWER IS DICONNECTED AT THE WALL BEFORE PULLING APART DISHWASHER) and let some water drain out and refit it on each of these. Remove water from tray below. Reassemble and try washing again. Hopefully this helps you if you are pulling your hair out like I was.

Fwt449gfs2 washes, empties some water, does not spin, knob does not advance

i would check the timmer. run it through a cycle and when it stops slightly move the timmer ahead. if that works than you need to replace the timmer... i had a washer that did that and it turned out to be the timmer on mine.

Oko 72630. Why is it stuck on rinse cycle?

Could be several reasons:
- Selected the "Night cycle" program (means standing with the drum full of water, reason: too much noise in the spin cycle)
- Set to the "Rinse hold" (means standing with the drum full of water, reason: wrinkles on the clothes)

According to your description I think that this is not a failure otherwise error E20 will be appears on display.

Once the washing programme has come to an end, END illuminates on the programme progress display.
If RINSE HOLD was selected, the display beside the START/ PAUSE button flashes.
1. After a rinse hold, the water must first be pumped out:
- Either press the START/PAUSE button (the water is pumped out and the washing is spun according to the completed programme;
After the START/PAUSE button is pressed again, the spin speed can still also be changed during spinning), or
- Turn the programme selector to PUMP OUT and press the START/PAUSE button (the water is pumped out without spinning),or
- Turn the programme selector to SPIN or SHORT SPIN and press theSTART/PAUSE button (the water is pumped out and the washing is spun or gently spun).
At the end of this programme step, the END indicator will illuminate.
2. Open the door.
As soon as the DOOR indicator lights up green, the door can be opened.

Frigidaire FWT647GHSO when it gets to rinse first rinse cycle, it doesn't stop filling with water. It won't agitate or spin. It works well in the wash cycle, agitates and spins and advances

probably you've got something blocking the water pump from doing its job properly so check that the water pump is free running emptying all the water if not then there is a blockage in the pump normally ist a button, paper clip or other debris out of a trouser pocket eric

Fisher and Paykel 7.5 washing machine keeps powering off during rinse and spin cycles

The pump has a thermal safety cut out on it.
If the pump gets too hot it cut out.
Just put a new pump in and your all going again.

Drum will not spin

I am the new owner of a used Asko Cylinda 10504.
The last owner briefly demonstrated the washer starting a wash cycle and entering the agitation cycle of the wash before stopping and pumping the water out and spinning in a final end cycle. I bought it. I had the machine installed turned it on and cannot get it to go through the wash cycle. After starting at #1 it goes through a perpetual spin cycle of sorts--water and soap soaking the drum and laundry but not enough water to fill up half way or less. It stops at number 4 on the program knob sits on a red dot (next to the #4) and does nothing. I then manually move it to the next cycle and it repeats the spin cycle again until I have advanced the program to the end. No wash cycle no rinse cycle. Nothing. When it advances to the red dot I wait for at least 5 minutes before manually advancing the knob. The instructions say that I should get the water pumped out by turning the program knob to #7 or #9 but in both cases it just spins and does no empty or finish in the end spin cycle of several (9?) minutes. Nothing but banging and spinning. The water seems to get into the drum as well as the detergent but nothing else is happening.
No mater where I start the program it spins and sloshes soapy water, pumping almost nothing out.
Any suggestions short of putting it on the curb or paying a kings ransom to fly a tech out to look at it?

It seems that it is repeating the same brief cycle over and over. During the move to my house the electronics re set(??!?!?) and now need to be set to the normal mode after being re connected?
Can you help?

Asko Quattro 6661 water inlet fault

I had the same problem with my unit. The manual tells you to disconnect the water intake at the machine and clean the screen. This wasn't my problem because as you said the problem doesn't occur until the Rinse cycle which means there is water supply to start the Wash cycle.

From the back of the unit, remove the three screws and take of the lid. You'll notice that there are three separate motors do pump water inside the machine at the water intake. When standing in front of the machine, the motor on the right controls the rinse cycle. I connected an AC volt meter to that pump and started the rinse cycle. 240v showed up at the pump, but the water flow was poor. I simply squished up and down the rubber hose connecting this motor to the detergent unit and was unable to free the clog and water began to flow.

ASKO 1605

Hi Guys
My dishwasher this morning has desided to not work correctly.
Its a ASKO 1302 about 20 years old. It has been a very good machine.
Over the last couple of weeks during the washing cycle, the dishwasher has been making a loader noise than usual.
1. Today, the dishwasher timer, travels all the way through its cycle, but very little washing take place.
2. Soap power is still there, plates not clean!!!!
3. Water is hot
4. At the end of the cycle, there is no water in the dishwasher.
5. I'm thinking the problem could be the pump needs replacing.
What do you think?

Asko 1585 Dishwasher

do they flash lik all on one side then the other? Start a cycle, then open the door. Do the lights flash the same way when you open the door as when it stops? if soyou may have a door that needs to be adjusted so it closes better. when the cycle ends, is there any standing water in the bottom? if so you may have a poorly routed drain hose or a partial clog in it. Last, pull the bottom panels off and look inside the bottom of the dishwasher and see if there is standing water down there . If ther is you have aleak somewhere or a bad drain pump. You r only other choice is a bad pressure switch. If youve already adjusted the water fil to the proper level ( just up to the grey plastic housing that the lower wash arm sits on) tehre really aernt any more options. Hope this helps!
