Machine starts to fill then stops after 2mins goes to S W600 WM33

9 posts in this topic

Hi this is my first post so I hope I can give you enough info.

I got a second hand Asko W600 WM33 on the weekend, I plugged in in it starts to fill with water for about 5 secs then stops.

After about 2mins it goes to S on the dial and drains the machine. I have tried filling the machine with water through the detergent draw this made no difference.

I took the back cover off and check the brushes plenty of meat left on those.

The drum was tilted back and resting on the rear support, didn't look like this was correct as when you free spun the drum it rubs on the support?

Any ideas will be great.

I never even seen one of these machine but if after 5 seconds the machine stops it must be not sensing water entering into the machine. Must be a failed flow metering device of some sort hindering the filling of the machine. It does not know how much water is entering and therefore pumps out after 2 minutes just to be on the safe side? I would love to see a manual on one of these machines.

If the program knob stops in position “S” after the

program has finished or been interrupted, this

indicates that a motor fault, a level sensor fault, or a

program fault has occurred during the program

cycle.

It may just be bad motor brushes. Easy to check and replace and relatively inexpensive part. Remove the brush holsters from the motor by removing the obvious retaining screws. The carbon brushes are spring-loaded. If one or both are worn to nubs or cracked, then replace both brushes at the same time.

I have done this and there is about 2 inches of carbon left on both, I found why the motor was tilting back a retaining spring had come off / left off? the top of the drum.

Is there a way of overriding to motor to get it to spin just to see if it at least works?

It's the best advice you're going to hear when it comes to ASKO.
