Question about Asko W6461 Front Load Washer

Open Question

Asko W6461 Some programs (normal, quick, hand/wool, rinse) won't start, and machine freezes when start/stop is pressed. Other programs are fine(Sani, Heavy, Normal Plus, Perma Press) start just fine.

As soon as the start/stop button is pressed when one of the problem programs is selected, the machine freezes and no button pressing or knob turning will have any effect on anything at all. Only turning the machine off with the power button, then turning back on, will allow anything to function again. Is there a simple solution for this?

SOURCE: normal, delicate LEDs blink; rotor starts, then stops

OK. Here is the real solution: the dry sensor itself needs to be clean. There is an excess of clothing fiber deposited over the sensor. When you use "sensor dry" the sensor is not detecting humitity flow and it "thinks" that the clothes are dry, therefore it turns the machine off after a minute of operation. The sensor is located on the right side of the plastic grill where the filter is inserted. Stick you head inside the dryer and look down towards the mounting plastic grill and you will see it. You will see 4 holes where the screws are installed to mount the grill. Remove the screws and you will release the sensor. You will see the black and white wires connecting to it when it comes loose. I don't think that it matters where each one is connected, but I did mark them in order to re-install them back to their original connectors. The sensor is made of two metal pieces that run parallel to each other. Disconnect the wires after releasing the sensor. Use a vacuum to clean it. I actually washed it to remove all fiber dust from the surface of the plates and dry it with a hair dryer. Clean it very well so you do have to do it again anytime soon. Re-install the sensor and reset the dryer. This should do the trick... Good Luck!

SOURCE: Loud Buzzing Sound from Dishwasher

have you ever seen green led "Clean" light flashing? before or about the same time the buzzing sound started? and if so that would indicate that the control senses a fault in the temperature rise during the heating cycle and that the electronic control could be reset by initiating a service diagnostic cycle.(which is what you were trying to do) pls reread your manual there are times during that sequence that some buttons have to be pushed at the same time and within a certain amount of time..possible that your machine also has a bad timer which would give you a buzzing noise..if thats the case I would recommend replacing the cpu or control board..or the machin all together..The Kenmore Ultra Wash Quiet Guard name is sears but whirpool has the contract to produce all "kenmore products.hope that helps.

Asko washer W6324. Ran two loads with no problems. These used the SANI setting (wish I could control the water temp by temp settings and not fabric descriptions). New load of delicates. I set it to woolen...


Try to press the start/stop button for at least 3 seconds. This should reset the started cycle, and you can make a new choice. If this dont help, it could be a faulty control board

Kenmore dishwasher model #665 15872000 is stuck on time saver option for washing and I can't get it to switch to any of the other options such as normal wash


Similar Kenmore Dishwasher 665.18664000. Time saver and Quick rinse were the only programs that would run. I pressed "high temp scrub" then "air dry" then "high temp scrub" then "air dry" and the machine went into a diagnostic mode and counted down from 10 while running a series of tests. After about 10 minutes and various test cycles the machine reset and the "normal wash" light had come back on. If this doesn't work then you may have a problem with the controller which other threads have mentioned replacing yourself for about $120.

I need to reset my Kenmore Elite dishwasher but i don't know how.


Hello,

follow the below instructions:

Unlock your Kenmore dishwasher control panel by pressing and holding the "Heated Dry" button for four seconds.

Press a series of four buttons in quick succession. Press "Heated Dry," "Normal Wash," "Heated Dry" and "Normal Wash" to instruct your Kenmore dishwasher to run a short diagnostic test

Wait for two minutes while your Kenmore dishwasher runs its diagnostic test.

Press the "Cancel/Drain" button once your dishwasher has completed its diagnostic test. This should reset your dishwasher control panel and stop the "Clean" light from blinking repeatedly.
Good luck.

Miele g892 and just like everyone the red light comes on and dishwasher stops running> why cant you answer thic common problem>


The red light tell you there is a fault. You have to read the fault code and it will give you a general idea of the problem - to do this you have to enter the service mode of operation - close the door and turn the dishwasher on.
The Start/Stop light must be blinking. If the Start/Stop light is not blinking, press and hold
the Start/Stop button for at least 3 seconds to exit the cycle. The Start/Stop light should now be blinking.

Press and hold the Start/Stop button while turning the dishwasher on. Release the
Start/Stop button and immediately press it 2 more times. Flashing Intake/Drain and
Salt lamps and a lit Rinse lamp indicates successful accessing of services mode

Don't need those bolts except for shipping the washer. They were supposed to have been removed a long time ago.

This worked great - press Sani Dry, then press Heated Dry - then repeat - press Sani Dry, then press Heated Dry. All control lights will light and then press Cancel. The control panel should work normally.
