ASKO W600 Washer Repair

13 November 2012 - 04:06 PM

The Saga continues -
Nov 12, 2012 ASKO W600 Washer Repair - Status Update.
Original Problems: 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

ASKO W600 Washing Machine - Door Latch Broken

18 October 2012 - 11:45 AM

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.

Dryer won't start ASKO T700

05 December 2011 - 04:01 PM

ASKO T700 Dryer re-assembly help needed.

I replaced a belt and pulley assembly and put everything back together but now the dryer doesn't do anything when I press START.

The parts were correctly ordered from RepairClinic.com and were installed correctly but now I have the cleanest, nicest dryer that won't start.

The washer (ASKO W600) plugs into the dryer and the washer works when the dryer is plugged in. The belt and pulley are installed per the picture that came from RepairClinic.com.

My only guesses are:
1) That the door is not attached correctly. The 'reversable' bracket fell off when I took the front door off and I hadn't taken a picture of it beforehand.
2) The drum is not seated correctly against the front of the dryer.

Thanksgiving Day. My husband was upstairs preparing a romantic dinner for two. I was downstairs finishing up the last of the laundry but the dryer seemed to be taking longer than usual.
Upon inspection, the dryer drum had stopped turning but the dryer was still blowing heated air. Since both the washer and dryer had been running when I heard a ‘pop’ sound, I checked the fuses first. One came apart in my hand. Hmmm. Opening the bottom panel of the dryer showed me the broken belt. Needless to say, I decided to enjoy our dinner and said nothing about our dryer problem.

The next day, I planned to order parts and figure out whom to call. RepairClinic.com provided pictures of the parts needed for both the fuse assembly and the belt and the correct parts were ordered. I also found drawings of pulley and belt assemblies and the pictures indicated probably a front area of the dryer.

Since a washing machine interaction with a ‘trained’ ASKO service provider in our area was less than fun - huge trip charge, little experience or native intelligence, and then didn’t have parts – not to mention loss of work hours and pay for me to sit around waiting – I was game to attempt my own dryer repair.

The fuse assembly was replaced and then I was back to my original problem. Having ordered the belt and pulley assembly at the same time, it was now time to replace the belt. After taking the top of the dryer off, it was still unclear where the drive and pulley assembly were located or how to get to them. Groan….

I was unable to find drawings and ASKO never sent any after I called to ask for instructions from their parts department. Afraid of taking the back panel completely off and screwing up the drum, I was able to get the plastic venting pieces out and use the back and side round venting holes to slip my arms into the pulley area.

Well my maneuvers proved almost comical – except for the subsequent bruising up and down both arms. Being female gave me the smaller arm advantage to use those stupid holes but my lack of upper body strength made getting the belt onto the pulley (without loosening the drum) almost impossible.

I said ‘almost’. It got done. Then I battled with the plastic pieces only to hear them come apart just as I thought it was finally time to celebrate.

Well it all finally got together and I replaced the lid and pressed start. NOTHING.
