Asko W6021 as soon as machine is turned on it starts to drain?

3 posts in this topic

I have an ASKO front loader washing mashine, which has been a wonderful unit up until last week when it has started to play up.

Regardless whether there is water in the unit or not, as soon as the unit has powered up it tries to drain.

 

I assume this may be down to a faulty pressure switch?

Any help at all would be fantastic :)

Could be.  But enough water may remain, not visible. causing the drain pump to run.  If this unit has a filter screen, check for debris that may restrict flow.

 

Also check the unit for leaks.  Some models may have an overflow or leak detection devise that may cause the drain pump to energize.

Level Switch part number 8061747

An electromechanical level switch operates at two levels, see the electrical schematic diagram. It checks the water level and starts the drain pump if overfilling is indicated.
