SOURCE: Asko W640 water outlet fault
If you get the water fault after checking the lower drain, you may need to remove the drain hose in the back. Usually there is a dime in the hose or the hard part right before the hose.

check the filter basket that catches waste from the washup. Also follow the outlet hose ( usually winds through cupboards to the sink outlet. ) and see there are no kinks in it from articles being pushed against it.
If these are OK it may be that ther outet valve is jammed and this will require a tech, as the whole casing will need removing

Hi, Welcome to FixYa. With the Asko washer it means the drain time has been exceeded, and that means either an obstruction in the drain hose, pump filter or the pump itself has failed. The most likely and also the place to start is the pump filter. If you open the small access door below the main basket door or behind the lower panel ( depending on year it was made...serial # ) there you will see the removeable pump filter. Unscrew it counter-clockwise ( you may need a few towels, sponge or a wet-dry shop vacuum ) observe the inside of the pump, clean the filter thoroughly, re-insert it and give it a test on a rinse cycle. If you unplug it for several minutes after cleaning the pump & filter it should eliminate the error message. Let me know how it goes. Regards, Macmarkus :)

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(You need to get at the drain filter itself- behind the 'door and lid'! Try these)
Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not go to spin or release the door lock if there is water still left inside.
Here are my complete and general pre-typed (!) guidance notes for checking both the drain filter and the drain motor ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!
Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!
