I have looked on the forums and the web for this problem and have not seen it.

We have an Asko W/D pair that we bought in 2003. The washer is 120V and plugs into the dryer.

I chased off the service men a few years ago and have been making repairs, mostly brush replacements, since then.

A few months ago, the washer started making screeching noises, which sounded a lot like dying noises.

It did finally die. Big Clue Symptom was no power light when the power button was in.

I pulled the brushes, which were only half way down. I replaced them anyway, since I was on the floor under the washer, but that did not fix the problem.

I downloaded the parts list, found the fuses, and pulled the W/D combo out six inches so I could get behind it. I found no continuity on the washer fuse - white, ceramic, 15A/250V. I replaced the fuse and the washer started, sans dying noises (???).

All's well that ends, the Firesign Theatre sez, except that each next fuse dies in about 10 days. At $1.40 a shot, this beats an Asko service call by a long way, but fuses fail for a reason.

I am clueless, other than to think the motor is dying. I don't want to run that $200 experiment without a stronger feeling that the motor is the problem.

Ideas?

Need to trace the fuse wiring. Is the fuse for the motor? You could also check current draw (amps) when the motor is running.
