In Topic: Asko W620 not completing cycles

Thank you both for you help!  The water inlet valve has been replaced and the washer is completing cycles.  I do have one follow question, if you don't mind.  The water comes in during the fill cycle as it should, but when the valve closes to stop the water there is a loud thump.  It is pretty loud, does that sound normal with a new valve?  or could there be a possible issue causing such a loud/hard closing of the valve?  Could it be air in the line?

Hi all,


A couple of more symptoms.  This morning I found water in the wash drum that was not there last night.  I assume this points to some sort of slow leak by the fill valve.  I also ran another test load today, and watched the cycle.  At one point the water was drained by the water pump, and when new water should have come pouring in, it just trickled in.  I think this also points a water fill valve problem.  I will check the hoses/screens for debris and a reduced water pressure.  If anyone has any other steps to help diagnose my problem it would greatly appreciated.

I have ordered and received a new motor, but have a couple of questions about it. Attached are pics of the old motor label and new motor label. My old motor is a CESET, 208-240V, 60Hz, 400W. The new motor does not say CESET, is 208-240V, 60Hz but is 380W. Is this the correct motor? Will the difference in watts cause problems?

Here is the link to the new motor, ordered from RepairClinic: http://www.repaircli...8063733/1063696

My second concern is that the old motor has a 4 groove belt, the new motor has a 7-groove belt post. The back of my wash drum is also a 4-groove belt channel. I ordered a new 4-groove belt as preventative maintenance. My question is, will the 4-groove belt stay in the channel of the 7-groove channel on the new motor? or will it slip off? Attached are pics of the old and new belt channels.

As always, any help is greatly appreciated. (pics of belt channels in next post, files too big)

Here are the belt channel pics

The brush tips are 5mm x 13mm, best as I can measure. With about 5mm of length left on them.
