Question about Asko Washing Machines

Open Question

I have an ASKO WL6511XXLW washing machine. What does PCB error mode "E8" mean?

Starting the wash program, the washer adds water, but when the drum wants to start turning, something causes it to fail. After a few trys, "E8" appears on the display.

possibly the motor brushes.
take back panel off and motor is held in by bolts which undo - also disconnect electrical plug and socket.

F-12 is a drain problem.

Check if the drain hose is free, if cycle stops and gives you f12 without draining the water, there is a problem with the drain system.

The Hotpoint should have a removable paner at the back on the lower side. The panel gives access to the pump. If cleaning the drain hose does not solve the problem, the pump must be removed and cleaned or replaced.The repair should be done by a technician.

Hi.

E8 is fault connection from CCU (Control board) to balancing sensor.

When you get E8, this is often because of a faulty control board.

Try first disconnecting power for a couple of minutes, to reset the appliance.

If you still get E8, then you need to call a technician. Testing is done jumping the two wires to the sensor to bypass the sensor, then replacing either sensor or control board.

If you want to arrange a repair, then you can call the phone number listed on the machine owners manual.

Regards.

Hello Ellen, welcome to fixya. I would begin by removing the rear panel and checking the belt and insure the basket pulley isn't loose as well. If the belt is in tack ( not broke ) but has come off that sometimes is caused by a loose or bent pulley, hence the suggestion to check the pulley. If the belt is broke, it may simply be a matter of normal "wear & tear" and just time to replace it. Hope that helps point you in the right direction. Please take a moment and rate this info according to it's helpfulness or let me know if I can assist you further. Thanks for visiting "fixya" today and good luck. Macmarkus :)

Whirlpool duet after pressing start button nothin happens. goes thru add garmet and wash just beeps. no water rushing in


It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle.

What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

If there is no water flow the inlet valve is a suspect.Check this link to replace the inlet valve:

http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/washing-machines/a/7/1408/how-to-replace-the-inlet-valve-on-a-washer-dr.html

Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.

How do you stop the cycle immediately after starting (found a sock that needs to be added in the washer) and then re-start wash cycle


You can only add items to the wash for a few minutes after that washer starts. If you found something you want to add you have to restart the cycle. This is a safety feature added to the front load. After the washer is full of water it doesnt allow the door to open so the water in the machine doesnt flood you laundry room.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

This is symptomatic of a water control valve not closing completely- its no power/fail position is closed.

The symptoms that you describe are caused by bearing failure. The water seal in the wash tub has failed, allowing water to leak into the bearing causing the bearings to rust. As the bearings start to rust, they will not roll properly and start to make a rumbling sound. The sound get louder the faster the bearing turns.
It a major job to repair since the washer has to be taken apart and the wash drum needs to be removed to replace the seal and bearings. Get a few estimates before deciding whether the washer is worth the cost to repair or replace. Sorry.

you have to check the water level sensor, included to check the small hose from the drum to the water level sensor. there must be pressure from the water to suppress these sensors, the operation of the washing machine are:
washing process / cycles will start when the water level, which we set is reached. then there is pressure from the water through a hose, pressure water level sensor.

while SPIN is the reverse process of the washing process, water in the drums will be drained through the drain valve. and there is no pressure in the water level sensor so that the spin will start.

Stoping under process on every step from begning to ending


its very common for front load washers to have the water pump to freeze up.

ever washed something with sand or little rocks or rubber bands?

flip the washer to the side, then locate the water pump. take the filter and the hoses around the water pump. sometimes the water pump too, to make sure that the fins on the water pump are free and not stuck. put everything together and try the cycle. when the water pump is stuck it will cause the error and will not go into the spin cycle.

Can you add clothes to washer after cycle starts?


Not really. Even if it lets you it will pump out the water first. This kind of defeats the purpose. If it didn't pump out the water it would spill on the floor.

problem may just be that drum is not turning so you think program is stopped. try cancelling and select spin program and see if you get spin
