Question about Asko WL6511W Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Anyone know where I can obtain a service manual for an Asko Model W6551 Front Loader Washing machine. Problem: Set machine on spin only cycle, pump operates, bowl rotates one direction approx 3 turns then other way for 3 turns then stops , LCD display then asks you to select a programme again. Same thing happens on all cycle selected. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Pete

Sounds like the motor brushes need to be cleaned or replaced. Take the back off the washer, remove the motor and gently scrape the excess carbon or debris off the brushes with a pocket knife. I did this and it ran well for about 50 loads before building back up. I am ordering new brushes now because when I checked the brushes last week they were obviously worn more than 4 weeks ago.

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.

SOURCE: Programms rotate without stop

Check your instructions, and see if there is a reset point or function, if there is not ,then it has a control unit malfunction, and unfortunately, this is not something you can fix yourself.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Hi,

This is not a good news. This is an indication of an internal failure. If the pump has blocked and the thermal overload has gone open circuit, just remove the blockage from the pump, the module and the pump should still be okay.

If the pump windings are water damaged, the pump will quickly overheat and cut off again. The pump must be replaced in this case. The electronics should still be okay.

However, on most cases, this error message indicates Faulty pump or a faulty pump and board.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

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...


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...

macmarkus_110.jpg


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...

macmarkus_111.jpg


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.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Asko front loader, fill with water but won't wash, drains water OK


Hi, Have you removed the back panel to insure the belt is on ? What about the spin cycle, will it spin ? (That will also tell you the belt is good by the way) I'll watch for your reply. Regards, Macmarkus :)

My asko regardless of selected wash program stops after the main wash, it will drain the water, but then not start the rinse cycles. The washing machine will allow you to open the door. I thought it was...


When your rinse cycle does not work it is your outlet filter that is clogged. If this is a front loader the small door is in the bottom front side of machine. Be prepared for some water to come out when u open the door. Unscrew and clean out filter and refit.

Also please note
with the Asko there are several possible things that can interupt the cycle either during wash or drain/spin. Have you checked the pump insert/button trap for debris or obstruction of any kind ? ( below main door to the left ) Are you using "he" ( lo-sudsing ) detergent ? Does the machine provide any error code, i.e. If it's a mechanical timer model does it stop at "C" or "S" or if electronic a symbol in the display ? Will it complete a cycle without any items in the basket ( empty ) ? Will the unit rotate in both directions and will it spin if you try both parts of that specific cycle ? This will help determine if the problem is with the drive motor brushes.

Water doesn't drain


you could have a bad drain pump.
have you checked the hoses that come from the bottom of the tub to the drain pump for anything that might be stuck in there,also check the hose that comes off the drain pump to the wall and look for an obstruction.

My Asko W6441 front load washer F3 message


Hello. You said that you checked the drain line for obstructions, but did you check the pump? I would remove the hoses from the pump and using a flashlight, look into the suction port on the pump. Check the pump for any obstructions (like the occasional stray sock) and check the pump impellers. Look for broken/missing blades and ensure that the impeller spins freely. If there are missing/broken blades or if you cannot get the impeller to spin freely, the pump is defective. You may have already done this, and if so I apologize. Anyway, hope this helped and best wishes.

Whirlpool AWM312/3 Front Loader Washing Machine - not spinning


I would recommend getting the service manual for your model as some models have clutches that control spin and others have belts. The service manual would be the best route if you are planning on repairing this yourself. If you would like the service manual let me know and I will post a link to where you can get one emailed to you.

depending on the make and the model, especially if it is a top loader, try replacing the belt. when the belts get older they stretch and slip a little, just enought o cause your problem
