Overfill Protection tripped on ASKO D3112 dishwasher

The overfill protection tripped on my ASKO D3112 dishwasher. I fixed the problem and have dried out the inside of the dishwasher above and below the filters. The pump continues to run. I have trouble accessing the overfill protection pan underneath due to a kick board. How big is the overfill protection pan? Will it really dry out on its own? I understand that this pan is what is keeping the overfill pump running.

    my dishwasher retained water probably due to the filter not being cleaned. I have cleaned it out, and bailed the water. When I hit start, only the pump runs...I believe the dishwasher still feels that the water level is too high. Can you help? ASKO 1805SS 13 yrs old

    I have the same problem......I'm going to try the recommendations below and see if I can fix it.



    When I called for service, ASKO said this was not a warranty-covered service call and I could fix the problem myself. They said they would send instructions. Haven't received them yet.

    The motor is running after the overfill protection is tripped. How do I fix the trip. Is there a trip switch?

Remove the front toe kick. you should have 6 torx screws. four in the top 2 in the front. your float switch will be in the front center .the float is a piece of styrofoam - the float many times is what you find jammed up making the unit believe it has water in the base

Remove the backpanel of the machine, and look if there is water at the bottom of the machine. If so, use a towel or so to dry up the water. This should solve the prob.

There is a chance that after the overflow the microswitch monitoring the float has jammed or is broken. This can happen if the overflow was very high.
This switch may be visible in the front of the unit, should be black/brown square with a red contact button underneath. If you're handy with electronics you might be able to remove it and put in an alternate, but in general you're better off just calling the service guy.
If the bottom is dry and it's still not working (ie. pumping all the time) this is probably the cause.

F2 overfill. how to reset?


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

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.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

A E4 comes up water seems to be in bottom and there does not seem to be a drying mode...


E4 is overfill protection error . If that happens on drain, then it is a drain problem.

Try first tripping circuit breaker and dry water in the tub using a sponge.


Check the drain well and the filter.
Ensure drain hose at the back is not kinked.
Access pump hose , undo it and look for blockage.
Check the water level device. This is usually a float switch, on some model you also have a pressure switch.

Drain motor runs all the time. flashing "glass" light , (overfill switch tripped ) but drain system now clear. How to reset. I am 5 hours (return trip) by car to nearest city.


used a (new, clean) plumber's helper to force air through the drain system. The pumping action removed the water from the sensor and back in business.

ASKO 1385 not filling after overfill protection was turned on


If when turned on the dishwasher sounds like it is running the drain pump, and does this in any cycle setting, it is possible that the drain pan below the unit has filled with water. Check this post for more details.

Kenmore Elite Dishwasher - leaks from Overfill Protection Float


I had the same problem, but mine leaked every time. I have a kenmore ultra wash dishwasher no. 665.15762. I took the bottom rotating sprayer off and found that the plastic piece under the sprayer had a few loose screws and the rubber gasket, under that piece, had blown out at the corner facing the overfill protection float. I took out all the screws and re-mounted the gasket in place and put all the screws back and tightened them. It solved the problem. I hope that this helps others.

Dishwasher not filling


There is a new part that replaces the Overfill Pressure Switch part number 8058474. It is now part number 8071024 available from ASKO part sellers. The hose inlet on the new part has what looks like a blockage. It actually "dampens" the effect of the pressure sent through the small hose attached. The old part does not have this "damper" This pressure switch works in conjunction with the flood protection switch in the bottom pan of the dishwasher.

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 !

Overfill protection tripping


Is there water in the drip pan? My asko developed a leaky inlet solenoid, which would fill the drip pan eventually causing a failure. If the water evaporated, the washer would run. Normally, there should be no water in the drip pan.

ASKO Overfill protection tripped


Ok, heres what you have to do. Remove the lower toe kick and then remove the panel behind that to gain entry to the lower portion of the dishwasher wher the guts are. You will also have to pull out the little brackets that hold the toe kick and all the screws will be t-15 or t-20 torx (little star shaped bits) Once you have all the panels out of the way, you will find water in the bottom of the tray there tripping the overflow switch. Remove the water with a wet vac or towel or something and the drain pump will stop running. If you can't or don't want to do all this, then just let the dishwasher sit for a few days or so and eventually the water will just evaporate and everything will work normally. Hope This Helps!
