To the dojo,

I've got an Asko washer not pumping out. Since I can't put it into diagnostic mode, I going to do the following test: disconnect power from pump, connect my voltmeter to the wiring, and check for 110V. If I get 110, then the pump's bad; if I don't get 110, then replace the master control board?

all voltages should be measured with the devices connected, unless otherwise directed

I measured 240V (YIKES!!!) at the pump; however, the washer plugs into the dryer. That said, this washer should only be using 120V, right? With that in mind, how do I stop 240V from coming down to the pump? Help!!!

Are you sure you need a 240 Volt pump????

From your location you seem to be in the US which as far as I know all the ASKO washers in the US are 120 Volt, (I'm pretty sure they make the 240 Volt pump for machines that are overseas where everything runs on 240 Volts).

Is this a US machine or one that came from overseas?

Maybe someone has mis-wired the washer plug or the dryer recepticle that the washer plugs into?

You don't want to be sending 240 Volts to your control board and blowing it out if that already hasn't happened!!!

Willie,

This Asko is made in Sweden; it appears to function the same as our electronified dryers--120 to the control panel, 240 to certain components. The label on RepairClinic's pump (http://www.repaircli...ber=W6661/White) reads "230-240V." I'm at a loss; I can't get the product to go into service mode, and the Asko literature states the 240V model's pump should ohm 144 (my ohms at 75).
