Having problems with your Asko Dishwashers ?

The motor is running on my dishwasher and all the lights are blinking but nothing is happening


Answers :

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description " the motor is running on my dishwasher and all the lights are blinking but nothing is happening " , the good news...It is likely nothing very serious, but the "reset" requires some investigation on your part.

The drain stuck cycle ( I presume you mean drain pump running constantly as that is the error all the lights flashing means ) are directly related with overfill scenarios for Asko dishwashers of this era.
This is meaning the control is indicating an overfill has been detected. Whether the unit has actually overfilled or not remains to be seen.

In the event it has, the outlet/drain pump motor is automatically turned on via either the pressure switch or a float in the base if sensing an overfill and removing water from inside the dishwasher will do nothing to resolve this error, but you can...

**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. If water is present, with the aid of a sponge, towels, or a wet-dry shop vacuum, absorb the water from the base...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 a problem 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 a drain back-up or obstruction in the drain hose or pump.

If not, there are a couple of other possibilities that I'd focus on.

**again insure power to the unit is off**

The first is the float and subsequently, float switch. If you've removed the service panel at the bottom, or toe plate, you need to locate the float and it's switch. It will be located directly behind where your main electrical junction is...

i.e.

\015\012
\015\012Once you've located the float behind the main connection plate, you should see something like this image below,

i.e.


macmarkus_6.jpg

\015\012With the aid of a long screwdriver or if you can reach it, move the float up and down and listen closely for the switch to "click", indicating it is indeed functioning.

Restore power again, and see if this resolves the issue, if not try this next...

The pressure switch too can cause the drain/outlet pump to run constantly ( and usually all the lights to flash such as your model or "F2"...depending on the era and model of the Asko...ones with displays show F2 ).

\015\012
\015\012As I was saying the pressure switch is the component which controls the normal fill level and the overfill detection...pre float activation. The float is primarily the last ditch safety to notify the user in the event of a overflow, back-flow, or leak underneath the unit to service or call for service to the unit.

It too is located under the machine and is mounted to the sump well assembly as shown, the large arrow indicates the switch while the small is the hose.

i.e.

macmarkus_7.jpg

\015\012
\015\012The issue is possibly just the hose going to the switch is clogged with debris such as dirt, detergent buildup etc and will be remedied by blowing it out.

The best way to do this is to remove this hose at the switch in the location indicated above, be very careful as to not break the hose off with the part of the switch inside, they can be delicate.

I typically work it loose with a tiny screw driver gently working it away from the switch. Once removed, pour a small amount of hot water, white vinegar or "CLR" through the sump from within the tub...or you can try blowing it through with "lung power".

The other end of the hose is located at the back of the sump well and is quite vulnerable to blockages over time due to detergents, dirt, and such.

This is the location...do not break this or you will need to replace the entire sump well...no fun.

Large arrow is pointing back to pressure switch, small indicates connection to sump well, sorry for the poor quality...it's hard to get in there with a camera phone, ha ha !

i.e.


macmarkus_8.jpg

\015\012
\015\012That's almost the extent of the possible causes of this error. Of course it could be the pressure switch has failed, the float switch has failed or ultimately the control has failed, but not likely.

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.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

ASKO 1555 dishwasher won't run. The anti flood device motor won't stop running but we've removed all the water. All the lights on the front panel blink in unison and when we hold down the start/cancel button on the front, nothing resets. We can't run our dishwasher. We've tried disconnecting power and resetting the circuit breaker but the churning motor won't stop.

I have just moved into a new house with an Asko Dishwasher. It is not working. I program it, the icon for the cycle I have chosen lights up in red, I press start, that lights up in red, the water runs in for about 30 seconds and then nothing more happens. This happens on every wash cycle that I attempt to use. It does not appear to be on time delay as that icon does not light up.
