Here we will discuss some common issues and solutions for Asko dishwasher problems.

Leakage issue

First, try to determine where the water is coming from. The leak could be coming straight out of the motor shaft or it could be coming from beneath the pump head where the water flows in.

If you see a little bit of leakage after having recently replaced your impeller and seal kit, odds are you have another issue on hand because those are usually pretty popular DIY fixes for leaks that seem to happen after normal wear and tear over time.

Make sure the leak isn’t coming from the washer itself if the dishwasher is leaking water.

If there appears to be no leak within, try verifying that the drain pump isn’t broken and verify whether or not this would just require replacing an individual part such as its spinning blade or if you need to replace the entire pump.

Not Draining Sometimes

The drain pump is located at the foot of the dishwasher. It uses an impeller to force water through the drain hose and into a waste disposer.

If the motor does not run, check the power to the motor using a multimeter set to test resistance. If there is power going to the motor with no resistance replace it drain pumps are not repairable.

Over time, owing to regular use, the drain valve might get clogged with a lot of debris and prevent the water from flowing backward into the garbage disposal.

To ensure that the drain water can freely flow through it again, try cleaning out the drain valve. If debris has accumulated inside the valve but is not blocking it completely, simply remove it to unblock it.

But if you’ve cleaned out all blockages in the drain valve and even replaced it but it still won’t work properly,

then you might need to replace it because there is absolutely no way of repairing a defective or damaged drain valve!

Lights blinking

The heating element heats the water to operating temperature. A light on the control panel should start flashing when the water doesn’t reach the proper temperature after a certain amount of time.

If the continuity is not there, it needs to be replaced.

Dishwashers typically have lights that, when they are flashing, can be an indication of something potentially wrong.

The dishwasher’s display window will have a code directly below if this is the case. Refer to the wiring diagram, tech sheet, and manual to find out what the flashing lights mean, and what you can do in order to resolve any issues associated with them.

If the drain pump is not working, the control panel will light up. Check the continuity of the drain pump motor with a multimeter to determine if it is defective.

The drain pump motor must be replaced if it is not conducive. Drain pumps are not repairable so you must completely replace them if they are defective.

The door won’t latch

The hinges on a door play a crucial role in terms of the structure of a door, which is obviously something you need intact if you want your door to operate properly.

Inspect the hinges for any potential damage or obstruction and make sure that they are free from obstructions.

If there is anything that might hinder the ability of a hinge from performing its duty, it should be replaced immediately.

Also, Inspect the exterior door handle for damage. Door handles are not considered to be part of the door latch assembly. If the handle is broken and you cannot use a key to open or lock it, you must replace it.

If the door strike is broken, replace it. The door strike is not repairable and cannot be fixed by repositioning or welding on additional material.

Creating noise

When the circulation pump’s motor bearings are worn, they generate an annoying humming sound.

Since the bearings are located at the heart of the motor, as it is designed to last for decades, a replacement will be required instead of just repairing a few minor parts.

The part of the garbage disposer that pushes water down the drain or moves it into a pipe is the impeller. If it’s broken, you can replace it.

The drain pump makes a lot of noise when there’s something wrong with it so if you can clean it and replace any clogs in your gutters, you may find that this temporarily fixes the problem until you buy some new parts.

Wash impellers force water through spray arms using a small blade. If one or more of the blades on the plastic wash impeller is broken one can expect to hear a dishwasher making noise.

In addition, if the plastic wash impeller is damaged in any way, warped, dented, or bent it could damage other parts and components.
