Drum will not spin
I am the new owner of a used Asko
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?
