I need a service manual for an asko w660 washer. My display indicates a wash motor fault. I want to check to see if the motor needs to be replaced or if its the wiring etc

Thank you so much... Now the real work begins. the W660 has a advanced level of testing built into its system. I did so for the motor surprise surprise nothing happened. The question I have is what does that mean. Nothing came up on the display. I noticed that when I tested the other operating functions a number would flash on the lower right hand side of the display. Does any one know what that means?

greetings all,
the service manual is great. The long and short of it the fault display indicated wash motor fault. Looking through the manual it appears that it could be wiring problem or the motor itself. I have taken off the rear panel and have a good look at the motor. The belts all look good and the wiring appears to be intact. The motor itself has a grey silver residue on the coil. My assumption is that is from the wear of the brushes. I do not have the electrical diagram for this machine. How can I go about testing the wiring and the motor?

If the brushes are bad AND if they're replaceable on this motor, then you can quickly tell by visual inspection. If they're cracked or ground down to little nubs, they's bad.

This washer has the FHP-style motor so you should be able to replace the brushes separately using this part ==> Motor Brush

You should replace both brushes at the same time so buy two AFTER you confirm that the brushes can be replaced separately on your washer. If they can, there will be obvious retaining screws that hold the brush holster onto the motor frame.

Double check your motor

thanks for tips. I pulled the motor and for what its worth the brushes look like they are in good shape. So what now? I assume that it might be the control board for the motor or the whole thing?

I take it back... I took a better look at both brushes, that is I detached the brushes from the motor frame, and it turns out 1 is completely worn to the nub. The other one is completely ok. At least 2 inches of brush untouched. I went to the order the part following the link you sent and they only have one in stock... I went ahead and ordered that one. The look or shape of the casing looks different than the one on the motor but I think it will work. As far as replacing both brushes goes, apparently there was very uneven wear on the brushes. I will go ahead and put a back order on the other brush, but what do you think of going ahead and installing just the one new brush instead of 2 at the same time?

Will most likely be OK and get you up and running for the time being.

Sometimes the brushes will wear unevenly, I'm pretty sure it's because of the direction of the motor turning at high speed for spin cycle causes the one brush to have a much heavier load against it then in the slow agitate/tumble mode, (IE: agitate/tumble just turns the motor slowly back and forth in both directions, high speed spin mode is always in the same direction).

You all are awesome. the brushes are not cheap but it beats 500 plus dollars and I get to continue to use a really pretty good washing machine that really cleans my clothes well and on top of that I can, with help, work on it myself. Again thanks and I'll keep you posted
