20 Most Recent Asko 24 in. D3121XL Free-standing Dishwasher Questions & Answers

I had tried several failed attempts to fix this problem. Finally I got on my knees and asked God to make the dishwasher run in Christ's name. The dishwasher just completed it's first cycle without any problems.

Contact one of the Asko authorised repairers in your area and they will be able to tell you the likely cause provided the water in your machine is heating up to the correct temperature and not trying to wash luke warm and without the powder dissolving properly.

Set the machine for a hot wash and stop it and open the door mid wash cycle and check how hot the water is. It should be extremely hot and you should get a mass of steam rushing out when you open the door.

I would check the voltages around the heater before replacing it. Sometimes the thermal overload relay opens out and shuts off the power. Could be a more simpler to replace than the whole heater.

I'm guessing as you did not list the model number. Something similar happened on mine. Due to a freeze, there was a small crack in the inlet and water had slowly leaked. As a safety feature, the Asko has a tray under the dishwasher inside the overall dimensions. It has a float. When the float rises, the drain pump starts and the dishwasher will not start. In my case, the drip pan is not connected to the drain which gave me the drain sound, but did nothing to remove the leaky water.

I suggest you take the front bottom panel off the dishwasher and check for water/leaks.

There is no error code, then check the following:

1)Check that the problem is not overflow.. Remove the lower access panels and check the tray under the dishwasher. If you find it is full of water use a cloth to dry water. Test the overfill switch.

2) Disconnect power, move the appliance forward and check that the drain and inlet hose is OK. Be sure that the machine is filling. THE DRAIN HOSE MUST RUN UP TO THE TOP OF THE UNDERSIDE OF THE COUNTERTOP THEN DOWN TO THE DRAIN. If the hose is not set up like this, water from the sink drain will flow into the dishwasher and overfill the tray.

3) Test the door lock. This can be tested jumping its contacts.

4) If all the rest is OK you may have a defective control module. This is not a common fault. Ensure that all the rest is OK first, wiring and pump motor must be tested before going for control module.

Start checking for overfill, that is a very common fault that may cause cycle not starting

If you want to contact a technician use the number listed on the USE AND CARE GUIDE.

IF you still have water standing in your dishwasher after it's done running you most likely have a damaged pump. This is quite common and is usually caused by a piece of a broken dish/glass or a small utensil getting down into the pump and breaking the fins on the empeller. This is a fairly envolved repair that requires taking apart the pump in order to repair it.

if it still pumps after tippng the water from flood pan then the float microswitch may be wet and burnt,

The door latch and or door handle assembly which also holds the door switch may have brocken.

If the door latch does not shut properly, this will not close your door micro switch. And if the switch is not closed then the machine will not operate.

Turn off machine at the power source. Open the dishwasher door. You may want to put some weight on the door to stop it from springing back up.

If you have a star allen key or a star shaped tool, you can open the screws around the stainless steel plate of the dishwasher door. Start with the ones on top, which secure the control panel and door lock. See if you can remove the control panel gently without having to open the screws for the front door panel. Sometimes you may need to loosen the front panel screws to free the top control panel.

Once you remove the panel, you will notice a door handle assembly which also holds the micor switch. Take note of how it is set up. Also examie to see if any plastic parts are broken. You may need to order the complete door latch or door handle assembly and replace.

While doing this make sure the machine is turned off at the power source.

Good luck.

When the pump runs continuerly it is probably water in the bottom of the dishwasher, when you drag it out on the floor you can try to flip it to see if any water will run out of the mashine, or you an take the bottom front of to see if you can see any water, there should be a water float in the bottom that is being activatet by the water that can leak from the washing cabinet to the bottom of the dishwasher.
