My Asko W6221 washer won't start any cycles - you can hear a click like it is about to start, but then nothing happens. I happen to have two W6221 models in my house (the other one is in my in-law's section), so I swapped the main board between the two to see if that made any difference. My board worked fine in the other washer and the other board did not work in my washer. That seems to indicate it is something other than the main board. My next step is to do a best guess scenario by ordering several parts (from Repair Clinic) and do some part swapping. I'm thinking of the timer board (#8061756), Pressure Switch (#8061664), and other Pressure Switch (#8064275). If you have any other suggestions, I'm all ears.

Most common cause for this problem is bad motor brushes.  Easy enough to check.  Unclip em' and get some eyeballs on 'em.  If they're worn down to nubs or if either one is cracked, replace both:  http://www.repaircli...8801195/1094128

Thanks for this advice. The machine was purchased in 2001, so that may be a good guess. This ought to be an interesting experience for me, though, as I've never extracted a motor from a washer before. Based on the diagram, I'm going to try putting it up on blocks (like a car) to get to the motor.
