Asko W600 washer

11 September 2010 - 05:49 PM

The Patient: Asko W600 washer

Age: purchased June 2001

Previous surgeries: New main motor, 2008

Symptoms: after filling, it fails to agitate then clicks to either C or S. Sometimes it works, normally after a small dance that includes tilting the washer and letting it thump down onto the floor. Fortunately, our first names begin with C and S, so the fault points to who has to dance with the washer next.

Sometimes, it goes through a full cycle. However, it is now agitating and then mid-cycle goes to C or S.

Problems started when male member of household used too much powdered detergent and the pressure sensor line became occluded. However, problem could be age related.

Physical examination:
Fills fine. Spins fine. Pumps out water/drains fine. Pin trap, empty. Pump propeller, spins freely. Water inlet, demineralised. Line to pressure switch clear allows air to flow. When diaphragm disconnected from switch, air pressure does cause switch to click.

Please advise how I can do a differential diagnosis to figuring out whether the problem is the pressure diaphragm, pump motor, solenoid or something else... and the best way to do so and fix it without electrocuting self :shock:

Lastly, if there is a manual that is more in depth than the lousy one that we get upon purchase, that would be *swell*.

Ta muchly.
