Question about Asko W640

1 Answer

Violent spin cycle

I have an Asko W640 which I've just recently purchased. I transported it in my car, on its side which maybe why it is not functioning upon the spin cycle? Used the machine for the first time today and upon reaching the spin cycle it vibrates Violently upon which I have to switch it off. Looking at the machine, the internal bit looks askew. Is there some sort of strut or internal rubbers holding the internal bowl part that has come apart while in transport on its side? if so, how do I fix it? I love the machine, it has so many good features. Many thanks.

    sorry, I got this machine secondhand. I saw it spinning well and evenly before loading it into my car on its left side. I assume it had its shipping bolts taken out when it was first bought eons ago?

    I wish I had got it transported upright by a moving company now. I forgot how tempremental these things are.

Did you remove the shipping bolts?

    the tub sits on suspension rods. it"s more than likely that when you laid it on its side it slipped off of one of the retainers, I assume that this is the front loader model?

    Sorry, missed the model number in your earlier posting. This unit sits on struts. kind of like shock absorbers. It is very likely that when the unit was transported it slipped off of one or more of its struts. You should be able to access them by removing the rear panel. At that point you should be able to see the struts and slip them back into their sleeves.

My Asko W 6761 just put oil spots all over my sheets. What is wrong? It appears to have happened in the spin cycle

What can happen is that the main and only bearing on which the drum rotates, can start to break up after time, and, of course, the bearing is full of grease. This could be the problem.
It would also be the reason for the spin to be all over the place as the bearing is not holding the drum properly any more.
A call to a Repair man or Service seems necessary I'm afraid.

Shakes violently during spin cycle from back to

I had this problem with my front loader as well. It is probably the mounts or "level shocks" on the bottom of the unit under the tub. I have a Kenmore by Frigidaire and had to replace the "level shocks". I only paid about $43.00 and was not that hard to put on. Look under your machine and see if the shocks are connected to the tub. Check under the top panel also to see if that particular model has mounts up there too.

Asko w640 has a water inlet fault

Check the drain line to make sure the water does not siphon out as it enters the machine.

Asko W640 - sporadically says motor fault and won't run, or, won't stop running, gets stuck on the spin cycle. We've had the motor fault problem before, but this "running on" issue is...

I would say the won't-run problem is separate from the run-on problem. You can live with the run-on problem -- probably a fault in the controller. Unless it's a faulty code, the motor-fault light probably means the motor is overheating. That can be caused by anything that causes it to work hard, such as a stuck pump.

Asko W600 spin cycle not working

Check the brushes oin the motor. It's the most normal fault when this problem appears. Not a big thing to fix for a technician!

Spin cycle trouble

possibly a segment has raised on the motor armature or a faulty motor brush. pop off the belt and put it into a spin cycle to see if you still hear the noise- if so the fault is with the motor as the drum will be still. any scraping sounds in the drum may be a lost bra wire.
