My Asko 6461 washing machine - F3 code
F3 problem, I had the issue on model W6461, however, judging by the amount of F3 issues posted this could work on other ASKO models
If the coin trap in the drain is clear of debris, try this.
Stages as follows:
1) Open drain pump door (bottom left of machine).
2) Remove black pipe and drain residual water.
3) Unscrew coin trap and remove, use a container to hold the water.
4) Leave the container underneath and make sure you have some towels ready (I didn't at the time)
5) Where the washing machine drain hose connects to the outlet in the wall or U bend connector remove this and expose the end.
6) Blow into the drain hose as hard as possible......hopefully the blockage will clear back through the coin trap.
7) Pour some water into the open end and blow this back through the drain as well.
A large lump of sludge, three of my 5 year olds small counter coins and about a litre of water (all over the floor, don't forget the towels!)
Just ran the machine now and fault cleared.
Asko W6461 Front...

I had the F3 error code on Asko front load washer. I pulled the coin trap (which I never knew existed) and found a handful of change, paper clips,.a screw, and a couple random plastic doo hickeys. I replaced the filter back into it's original position, twisting to the right. Upon running the next load, water started gushing water from the pump door. Any suggestions?
Hi Jacqueline,the filter will usually have a rubber o-ring gasket to seal the opening to prevent leaks. When you cleaned it,the gasket may have kinked, torn or popped out of the groove that holds it in place. Open the filter and check if the gasket is in place, if not slide it back into the groove and that should stop it from leaking. Also check the small drain hose, make sure the stopper is in. That should take care of any leaks in that area. If the leak continues I would suggest calling a local repair company. Hope that helps.

Asko 12005 washing machine vibrates and banging on side when spinning
The load has become unbalanced. Pause the machine in mid-cycle (do not Stop it) and when it ceases spinning, open it and re-distribute the load evenly. Then press Pause again to continue the cycle. Note: if you Stop it, then restart when finished balancing, the machine will start washing from the beginning instead of continuing from where you Paused it.
