Hello:

 

Above model of dishwasher:

 

I am working on 2 of these dishwashers.

 

I put the first one into test for fault codes. LED L1 lights up. Complaint no heating, long cycle, bad cleaning. I will be checking the thermistor for resistance and the heating element. I understand that there is a thermal fuse on the heating element that my be bad. Also, if there is a thermistor problem, the heating cycle is cut out/passed over completely. Also there is no water going up to the upper spray arm. That spray arm has sat in the same position through 2 cycles

 

 

I put the second one into test mode for fault codes. The LED L1 and LED L6 light up. Same complaints as above. Looks like the same senario as above. Except, the LED 6 lighting up. According to the service manual this is a rinse aid area issue, but it references that is for the dw20.5 only, not these dw20.3 models. Also, the same upper spray arm has the same issues as the first machine.

 

Any thoughts gents?

 

Respect and thanks,

 

Mike

Update:

 

According to the service manual, the Thermistor should read 25,000 (25K) ohms.

 

On both of the units I got reading of 17K to 19K ohms.

 

Is there that much wiggle room for thermistors? From the thermistors that I have looked over on other units, the short answer is no.

 

Also, the wash cycles complete themselves, i.e., initial drain, fill, wash/circulate, rinse etc., drain no problem. No error codes show up for those problems or parts.

 

Only thing still getting me is the unit with the L1 fault with the L6 lighting up as well. In the manual an L6 fault corresponds to a Rinse Aid issue but next to that reference in () it says 20.5.

 

The other unit has an L1 fault regarding temp increase sensing that appears to be right out of the manual.

 

Other issue with both unit is no upper spray arm involvement. I rotate them so they are pointing at my chest and at various intervals in the wash cycles I open the door and they are in the same place.

 

Any assistance would be helpful and appreciated. I am willing to donate to the beer fund.

 

Respect and thanks,

 

Mike

Well..... I think the Asko saga is finally over.

 

When the customer got the repair estimate for both machines he started asking how much new ones were.

 

I emailed with him and was honest. I never try to push a repair and give scenarios on purchasing new units and the repair of the old ones.

 

I bet he will just get new ones. This is an Architecture Firm and they have wholesale contacts and can get good ones for good prices.

 

Nice diagnostic fees for me though for a couple hours of work.

 

I was looking forward to working on them though.

 

Respect and thank you,

 

Mike
