The machine is about 4 years old; worked perfectly for awhile, now leaves a blue tinge (like tie die) on the stainless flatware and bowls in both upper and lower racks. We stopped using the Electrasol about 2 months ago but the problem has not subsided; remains the same. We do rinse before we wash. Thank you for your time and advice! -Deb

Depending on the age of the unit I'd say it's the heater element. Normally it happens after 4-6 years depending on usage. If your handy then to be 100% sure unplug the power to the heater (plastic clip on the side of a sausage looking tube) and turn the dishwasher back on and see if it trips the circuit then. * Please note to unplug the unit from the wall before atempting to carry out any work on the machine. Easiest way on a Asko is to go from the back.. 4 screws from memory and you take the cover off.*
Most likely it's a corroded door catch or a bad solenoid. Hopefully it's not the main control board. You'll need a repair manual or technician. A work around would be to use detergent tablets in the compartment
I also have an Asko D1716 dishwasher. The water stopped flowing. I replaced the water inlet valve and I have another problem, but the replacement of the fill valve is now letting in water. You can call Asko at 1-800-898-1879 to order the parts. If you order from Asko, I'm told you have some warranty on the parts. Anyway, the screws take a star drive and there is a front plate and back plate you will need to remove. There are approx. 4 screws on the front and 4 screws on the back. Just remember to unplug it before starting any work. The fill valve is in front of the machine. There are 2 screws holding it in place from the front. You will need to remove it out the back though to replace it since the fill tube to the tub is short and it wont allow you to pull it out the front. The repair is really easy once you get started.
