Does anyone have a technician's guide to the ASKO W600 washer? The latch on the door finally broke and I just received a new door (ordered the sensor too... just in case). Now I just want to collect a manual in case I need to take the sucker apart. The manual that came with the machine is not technical. Thanks all.

Okay I will looking through the manual. Meanwhile here is the status on the ASKO W600 washing machine problems:

1) Broken door latch problem. The door is replaced (the full door assembly). Door fits and works fine. Ran a cycle. No leaks from door but...

2) the long standing problem of water leaking from the bottom of the washer is significantly worse and now the tub does not rotate. My guess is that there is not enough remaining water to trigger the drum to rotate. After watching (and listening to an entire wash cycle) there were no error codes but the tub never rotated and when the cycle ended, the door did not release.

3) Door locking sensor may also need replacing. I anticipated that and ordered the part when I ordered the door since even before the final latch break, the door would periodically not release without using the emergency plastic manual release in the lower front pump area.

4) Even though I routinely clean the pump trap, the heaviest leaking is coming from around that area of the bottom front of the machine. Without the manual, I only removed the top cover and from what I could see no hoses were questionable looking but I will know more once I can get a look at the bottom of the washer.

From the top view (will upload picture tomorrow), the ASKO W600 was amazingly clean and didn't look like a 13 year old machine. Wow..... those Swedish folks were way ahead of the curve on front loader design and assembly. As much as I try to buy American, quality matters and there were few choices available in 1998 when we were looking into high efficiency washers and dryers.

Working my real (read: paying) job today but will resume my appliance work tomorrow after looking over the manual. Thanks all. -Judy

PS. With a listed capacity of 1.9, this size has worked well for two people. I even wash our queen size comforter in it.
With houseguests now, recent levels of laundry meant more items were stuffed into the washer.... which may have aggravated our long standing (and ignored by me) water leaks from the base of the washer into the (no longer ignorable) current water leaking crisis.... where almost all of it runs out soon after the water is pumped in. Yikes.....

Nov 12, 2012 ASKO W600 Washer Repair - Status Update.
Original Problem: plastic latch broken on front door panel and dramatic increase in water leaking from bottom of machine.
1) Problem with broken door latch is fixed.
2) Lock Switch. Not knowing if it needs replacing (but ordering the part anyway) I have not attempted to replace door lock switch. [Repair Clinic part number Item # 764056 Manufacturer Number 8061679
3) Water leak source. Tested washer with top and front panel removed. Found two sources of water leaking from the pump hose [Repair Clinic part number Item # 764058 Manufacturer Number 8061681]

At this point, I stopped to wait until the technical manual could be obtained before any more dis-assembly. [actually, I was busy with auto dramas at our house] Meanwhile it was necessary to clean all the debris and disgusting stuff inside the base of the machine from months of water leaking.

Now I am preparing to order the pump hose and wonder if anyone has done this before? Any advice?

All the other hoses seem fine and considering the age of this machine (1998) it is remarkable how sturdy and reliable everything else seems as I looked inside. Pictures will be uploaded once I remember how to do that from home. So that's where I am until this weekend. [Have to pay attention to my paying job first] -Judy

Anybody have advice before I order the pump hose for my ASKO W600? I plan to replace it myself and wonder if I should consider replacing other hoses. None have leaks or look weak but hey... what do I know?

If they're not leaking for chaffed, there's no need to replace them. Carry on with your plan and let us know how it goes. Post photos!
