Having problems with your Asko D3251HDSS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher ?

My garbage disposal had something stuck in it. i did not know and the sink was backed up. i started the dishwasher and it sounded like the motor was running like a drain emptying...i thought it would stop but continued. i unplugged the dishwasher, freed the garbage disposal and the drain is now clear. i turned on the dishwasher and the sound is the same. the large POT light is lit up and when you try to shut it off it doesnt stop running. i unplugged it for fear of breaking something.

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your post, the good news...It is likely nothing very serious, but the "resolve" requires some investigation on your part.

What it means is the control has indicated a overfill...makes sense considering your drain backed-up.

\012
**before proceeding turn the dishwasher power off via the home breaker panel, or unplug it from the wall if that is possible...most are hard wired to the home electrical...safety first**

The first thing to do is remove the toe panel/kick plate and inspect the base for water. There will likely be water present.
\012
\012With the aid of a sponge, towels, or a wet-dry shop vacuum, absorb the water from the base, that should restore normal operation...it should be known that if you leave the unit for a few days, the water in the base will evaporate hence appearing as everything is fine again...if any other problem/leak does exist it will return.

If the unit works fine after resetting the power/breaker and soaking up any water present, it can likely be chalked up to the drain back-up or obstruction in the drain hose or pump...
(it could mean a faulty drain pump so you'll need to pay close attention the next few times you run it)

**The float is primarily the last ditch safety to prevent disaster in the event of a overflow, back-flow, or leak underneath the unit and the illuminated light letting you know to service or call for service to the unit**

Hope this helps move you forward, or even better resolves the issue altogether. Let me know of course, I will help you move further if necessary.

Good luck.

Macmarkus :)

Had a clogged garbage disposal, once fixed, the dishwasher stopped getting water to it, sounds like its running, but no water coming to the cycle, Its a bosch dishwasher, motor seems to run, drain working,but no water to it.

I have a whirlpool DU915 built in dishwasher. During the last pre wash cycle after filling with water, it suddenly stopped and the lights on tne control panel went out as it was suddenly unplugged. All connections are still intact, the breaker box to the house has been checked. The shared outlet is still working, as the garbage disposal still operates normally. The latch on the door appears to be functioning. Can you please give me a direction to look?

I have a new FDB520RHS2A Frigidaire dishwasher which remains in the wash cycle after I've started it. It sounds as if it is changing cycles but the wash light stays lit and never switches to rinse. The machine continues to run for hours if I don't stop it. We've checked the drain to the garbage disposal and it is clear. the water temp seems to be hot enough but how do I check that? Any ideas on what we should check before we bring it back to the store? Your help is much appreciated. Thanks!

I have a whirlpool gold model GU1500 diswasher. When the rinse cycle ends the water pumps out into the garbage disposal like it should, but then water backs-up from somewhere into the bottom of the dishwasher. The overfill protection drain seems OK...the water doesn't overflow. It doesn't have a air gap on the sink. The drain hose goes directly from the dishwasher to the inlet on the garbage disposal. It appears to be properly installed per the installation instructions. The washer is about 4 ye

Bad smell This is more of a general question. When I run the dishwasher there is a bad smell as it fills with water. It comes out of the sink/garbage disposal. I have cleaned out the line that comes from the garbage disposal to the drain and that doesn't stop the smell. Is there a line that needs to be cleaned from the dishwasher to the sink or how can I fix this issue? My dishwasher, at the drain, has water standing and it smells. I think it is there from condensation as the dishwasher, unknow


Smell is not the fault of the dishwasher but your waste disposal unit - they stink!it may be awkward, but arrange your drain so that there is a water barrier. better still. install a standpipe for the drain, again with a water barrier ... Bosch SHY56A02 / SHY56A06 Built-in Dishwasher

Bosch she44c06uc. Like many here, changed out the garbage disposal and didn't drain. Have reset the system by holding the "Drain Cancel". No help. The cycle stops at draining. Investigated and found small piece of glass wedged in the impellor. While having the interior cover over the impellor off, the motor for the drain impellor is humming, but the impellor does not move while engaged. The impellor will rotate by hand and stops at a point at 3/4 turn. I am hoping it is not in need of a new moto

Ge profile dishwasher not draining Model no. pdw9280n20ss I checked the drain line at the garbage disposal. No blockage. Line is clear. The back flow loop is high and not kinked.

New dishwasher (Beko 2542F slimline model). Put it on for 1st time last night -when I got up this morning, the cycle which should have taken just over 2 hours hadn't finished. There's soapy water in the bottom of the machine which hasn't drained and the "wash" light is still on. Looks like the dishes are clean but hasn't moved onto the rinse/dry part. Followed instruction in manual to drain it (hold start stop button till lights flash and should drain in 45 sec) but nothing happened.

Hello, My GE dishwasher stopped draining. Model Number: VSD2304JOOWW I emptied out the dishwasher of the liquid, removed the cover and checked the filter. (Didn't look bad.) Checked the drain pipe under the sink and there was a little debris (slime) but very minimal. The garbage disposal was installed at the same time as the dishwasher 3 years ago (brand new place).

Dishwasher fills with hot water. Float OK - water feed stops when full. Motor humms but no water spray (in all opperating modes). Cancel selection (with cancel button) and close the door. The water drains then the unit shuts off. Water feed OK. Drain Cycle OK. Looks like spray pump hung but do not know. Cannot find a reset button (as with disposal) or way to free hung pump motor. I did see glass pieces in the drain. Possibly a small piece hanging the motor.

My Bosch dishwasher has had a problem since we had it installed. It smells like garbage after sitting for a few hours. This problem is there whether it has been run or not. Water is always standing in the large drain tube under the "filter" and it doesn't look clean. I contacted Bosch by phone as soon as this was discovered - in a matter of days after purchase - and was told by a rather haughty service person to leave the dishwasher door open. Not a practical suggestion even if it didn't sm
