High water level is often in the pan under the dishwasher.

  1. Unplug or turn off breaker.
  2. Remove kick panel.
  3. Remove water from pan.
  4. plugin/turn on breaker.
  5. watch for leaks.

Gurgles with no water coming in; keeps trying to run with door open.


Welcome to FixYa.

When the door is opened do the lights all flash, or are the flashing regardless if door is open or closed ?

Based on your description I`d suspect the unit has sensed an overfill problem...the flashing "LED`s" is how the Asko indicate this scenario.

The gurgling is simply due to the drain pump being on continuously.Though you say the machine is empty, the overfill basin may be full of water.

**Turn off the power to the unit via the house breaker before attempting any repairs or service**

If you remove the toe panel/kick plate below the door, check to see if the basin is full of water or has any sign of water being present. If left several days it will typically evaporate and appear to be normal again...until it overfills again.

There are other factors which could cause this of course, including a faulty pressure switch, but we can go down that path once you inspect the overfill basin for water.

Good luck.

All the lights are flashing on Asko 1805 dishwasher

Hi, You need to absorb the water in the overflow basen of the Asko dishwasher's and then push and hold a button to reset the error code...flashing LED's or turn the power off momentarily. You need to remove the lower kick plate and get to the basin with a wet-dry vacuum or sponge etc. Good luck. Let me know if I can assist you further. Thanks for visiting fixya and if you found this solution helpful please rate it accordingly. Macmarkus :)

Asko 1805 - inside light is on, none of the operation (front panel) lights turn on

Quite simple after all. If the main power button on the top left hand side of the door is pressed in (on). Whenever the door is openned their is a light in the DW which comes on like the fridge or oven.

Keeping the power button off turns the light off. For us this is good as we usually only close the door fully (catch catches) when we run the machine.This way we are not wasting electricity.

Water Connections

In the US dishwashers are usually connected to the hot water supply. Although the ASKO 1850 I believe has an in line heater. Using hot water supply will reduce electrical useage.

Interestingly we use to have ASKO washer and it suggested only using cold water hook up as it heated its own water. I guess this was a feature if one's laundry area does not have hot supply, but it made no sense in CA to heat water with electricity.

Asko 1805 dishwasher detergent door does not despense the detergent during the wash cycle. At the conclusion of the dishwasher cycle the door is still closed. How do you repair?

First make sure that nothing is blocking it.. when you load the make sure your dishwasher cycle is NOT on rince and hold ( water spraying on a plate symbol) as this cycle will not open the despence door..

last you can remove the screws in the door check the vax motor and or check if you are getting power to the despencer ( no power replace control)
power to vax motor replace despencer motor

Hope it helps if Not let me know more about you problem..I can help

Detergent door will not close on Asko model 1805 dishwasher

Here you must change complete detergent box. Or the electronic gives consantly power to trigger. Most likely one of these two.

Asko 1805 - all idnicator lamps blinking

Searched some more on this site and found the following from a guest (thanks). It solved my problem, the base where all the electrics and plumbing is located had a pool of water. I had to pull the unit out as I could not access this area from the front.

This is a common problem with the Asko1805. The machine is equipped with overfill protection. Water has leaked through to the bottom pan and has triggered the overflow shutoff float. You must get the water out of the bottom of the dishwasher. Unscrew the kickplate and the metal cover to access the bottom of the machine where the pumps and motors reside. Use a sponge to slop up the water in the pan. Blow dry the bottom. The machine will reset itself as soon as the water is gone.
