Hello,
\015\012 \015\012Welcome to fixya. \015\012 \015\012Based on your description and trusting it is indeed an Asko 1796, I'd suspect you have a door switch "accuator" sticking ( control pin as identified by Asko. pin part #80 575 42, switch part # 80 554 73 ). \015\012 \015\012This has been a random occurrence with Asko dishwasher's since they went to this design around 1994 or so. If the dishwasher doesn't stop when you open the door as you stated, here's a possible remedy you can try on your own. \015\012 \015\012Make sure the unit is off first. **Turn the breaker off at your home service panel before attempting any service suggested here on 'fixya"...safety first" \015\012 \015\012This procedure I'm going to suggest can be done easiest and more accurately by removing the control panel for better access as well as to visually inspect other component. \015\012 \015\012It can also be done without removing the panels by identifying the small round "pin" in the the door latch channel ( where the latch goes into the door when closed )...i.e.\015\012 \015\012 \015\01294bd9a4.jpg\015\012 \015\012...with the aid of a small screwdriver, tooth-pick, ear swab etc. add some vasiline or grease to the top of the pin working it in via pushing the pin up & down...I recommend removing the panels though. \015\012 \015\012To do this... Open the door and along the top you'll see "T20" torx head screws. Remove just the screws for the console/control panel, you must also be careful as the edges of these panels are sharp ( auto-mechanics protective gloves are good for this ). \015\012 \015\012Once off you can see the micro-switch and the small "pin" I was referring to earlier much easier. \015\012 \015\012cd7bb1b.jpg\015\012 \015\012Tilt the entire panel towards you slightly, just enough to work with ( careful not to undo any wires, or take pictures as you go ).\015\012 \015\012Apply some grease or silicone lube to the shaft of the pin/accuator and work it in really thoroughly. I find it easier to remove the plastic cover & micro-switch out of it`s bractket to allow a little room to work\015\012 \015\012i.e.\015\012 \015\012e09a335.jpg\015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012...careful not to let the plastic pin fall out. Where I pointed my finger in the image below is where to apply the lubricant.\015\012 \015\01203cb0a9.jpg\015\012 \015\012 \015\012Re-attach the control panel and you can test it before itstalling all the screws. \015\012 \015\012Let me know if you require further assistance. \015\012 \015\012Thanks for coming to fixya, please take a moment to rate the help you received. Good luck. \015\012 \015\012Regards,\015\012 \015\012Macmarkus :)

I used the "rinse only" cycle on the dishwasher a little while ago. I've never used this cycle before. After dinner I tried to start the dishwasher, but no other buttons on the panel respond except the last one I used, which is the rinse only cycle. I push and push, I tried pushing and holding, nothing works, I get no lights no anything. I've been using the "light wash" cycle for a long time and I normally just push the start button and the last cycle used starts automatically, so I wasn't a

Hi, I have had a few issues with my ST663 machine. The current problem: the rinse cycle light keeps flashing and it doesn't start when you shut the door. I have tried holding down the right button but it beeps twice and nothing happens? Also tried holding both buttons down for a while and still no success. I got a new electrical board installed not that long ago so not very happy hoping it not a big issue. Do you have any other things that I could maybe do?

I have a Whirlpool model DU1055KJVQ1, Type 575-0 under-counter dishwasher which is less than 2 years old. In the last couple of weeks, it wouldn't start intermittently, and I would need to hit cancel on the keypad, and then restart. Now that doesn't work. When I try and start the dishwasher, it doesn't work. I press Normal for the cycle, heated dry for the Option, and then hit Start. The buttons light up for 20 seconds or so, nothing happens and then they go out. Any ideas?

My Whirlpool Dishwasher ADP931 has stopped working. It stopped in the middle of the cycle with 2 to 3 inches of water on the floor of the compartment. I mopped out the water and tried to restart the dishwasher. The green "on" light now comes on when I press the start button. but nothing happens (no motor comes on,no water enters).Repeating the above action several times does not help the washer to restart even though the other function lights will come on when the knob is turned. saturn1914

My KitchenAid dishwasher model # kudp01ilbl2 won't start. It is the first time we're trying to start it since we had our water heater replaced (three, maybe four days ago). Not sure how much that may matter. I tried turning off electricity to the dishwasher at the fusebox (overnight), but that did nothing. Normally, you just need to hit the start button and the washing begins. Now, nothing happens. The dishwasher is about six years old.

Our AEG Favorit 50620 dishwasher won't start. When I push the power button, the power light comes on, but none of the other lights. Pushing the function buttons has no effect. The door is fully closed, and it was working perfectly before. I have tried turning it off and on, unplugging it etc. Nothing works. Interestingly, if you push more than one function button at the same time, some of the function lights come on, but then when you try to start the cycle it still won't work. Help!
