Question about Asko W6021 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

We have an asko 10504 front loader washing machine. It is making a huge noise with whistling sound (like a combination of a jet engine, diesel bus and heavy freight train). It is not spinning out properly. What could be causing this noise? Could it be bearings? Worn belt? Other?

Hi,

Welcome to FixYa.

Have you checked the pump to insure the filter isn't clogged or debris causing the noise ? Or do you know where it is and how to check it ?
In the event the washer can't drain sufficiently it will not spin properly either. This is by design, but it's easy to confirm or dismiss.

Check as follows...
**Unplug the unit from the dryer or the wall which ever scenario applies to your set-up, or turn off the breaker at the home service panel...safety first**
Remove the lower panel with two screws and then you'll see the pump filter/insert as shown here...

Once here, twist the filter out ( make sure you've got some towels, a wet/dry shop-vac or a drain in the floor close by as there WILL be water present ) and check the filter, pump, and hoses to the pump, drain etc. thoroughly for debris.

The filter should look like this...

Let me know if any of this isn't clear and I'll attempt to help you move forward. Once you've cleared the pump filter or ruled out it was indeed blocked or not, you can now try a short spin/drain cycle to listen for whether the noise is still present.


Let me know how you make out. Thank you for choosing FixYa and good luck. Please take a moment to rate the info provided for you here today at FixYa.

Macmarkus :)

My Asko 10504 has started making what sounds like a metal on metal grinding sound when it spins. It's as if the whole drum assembly is moving more than it should and coming into contact with something,...


COULD BE THE TRANSMISSION SPRING OR TRANSMISSION BEARINGS. EVEN UR TUB BEARINGS IN THE TUB, A BAD MOTOR COUPLER HOWEVER U WOULD NOT GET ANY SPIN OR AGITATION IF THE COUPLER WAS BAD. BAD BREAKING SYSTEM WOULD NORMALLY MAKE NOISE BUT WHAT U WOULD GET THEN IS A COMBINED SPIN AND AGITATION DURING SPIN CYCLE,

Asko w6444 front loader drum vibrating quite loudly. Feet are level. Any suggestions.


Check the 3 transit bolts on the backside of the machine. Should be removed. Could also be a problem with the balancing spring on the top of the drum, so the drum tilts a bit forward, and cause noise

Motor not running in Asko 10504 washing machine


The motor might have burned out. Another possibility would be a partially fried control board.

Machine wont stop filling with water, it just overflows. Machine is an Asko w6551 front loader


Same thing happened to my ASKO W600.  Sounds like the water inlet valve is blocked or broken so therefore can't stop the flow of water coming into machine.  Check it out and replace if necessary.
