ASKO Dishwasher No Light/Flashing/Blinking Problems

When you experience issues with your ASKO dishwasher lights either flashing or not turning on, your dishwasher is signaling to you that you have an issue. Because there are a number of different issues that your ASKO dishwasher can run into, it is important to know which one you are facing so that you can fix the problem. 

If your ASKO dishwasher has no lights, flashing, or blinking lights, this is your dishwasher alerting you that there is an error. Because there are several different issues that your dishwasher can encounter, knowing what the lights mean makes it much easier to fix the issue, rather than troubleshooting everything.

ASKO Dishwasher Light Not Working

You may find that your ASKO dishwasher is not working. There are a couple things that you could be facing. The more unlikely one is that you have a faulty latch. While this can happen, it is uncommon unless your dishwasher is older.

If your ASKO dishwasher light is not working it is most likely related to power issues. First, check to make sure that your ASKO dishwasher is still plugged in and that the outlet is working. You can check your breaker box to make sure that the breaker hasn’t flipped. If your dishwasher is plugged in and the outlet is working, the next thing to check is the fuse.

The fuses for your ASKO dishwasher are located on the inside panel of the door of your dishwasher. You can remove the panel by unscrewing the screws at the top. From there you want to lift the tabs that are located on the side of the back of the black box on the inside of the control panel. Using a multi-tester, check the fuse terminals to see if there is electricity flowing.

If there is no beep, that means that you need to replace the fuses. Fuses burn out over time with extended use and are easy to replace. Disconnect the fuses from the terminal and install the new ones and reconnect the electrical connectors. You can simply snap that black box back into place and re-screw the screws into the control panel.

ASKO Dishwasher Red Light Flashing and Beeping

Another common issue that you may encounter with your ASKO dishwasher is a flashing red light that is accompanied by a beeping noise. If you get this alert, your dishwasher will stop whatever cycle it’s in and begin the process of draining.

If your ASKO dishwasher has a red light flashing and beeping it is usually related to an issue with the overflow sensor. Your overflow sensor will go off when the water level sensors are clogged or dirty. When this happens, your ASKO dishwasher will reroute the excess water, stop the water supply, and trigger the empty pump.

To fix this issue, you need to clear away any clogs and clean your sensors. Remove the side panels of your ASKO dishwasher by pulling your dishwasher out and unscrewing the top screws. On the inside of your dishwasher, remove the filter that covers the drain of your dishwasher. 

Once you’ve removed the filter, you can remove the cover. Remove any excess water that has pooled there. Going in from the side, remove any excess water that has pooled at the bottom of your dishwasher. The easiest way to do this is by using a sponge, as you need to get under the dishwasher’s motor. 

To clean the sensors, you will need something to apply water and clean the sensors. One of the easiest things to use is a syringe. Make a mix of warm water and dish soap. You’ll find the sensors lining the inside of your dishwasher drain. There are three sensors along the wall. 

Squirt the soapy water mixture on these sensors for a few minutes. You want to ensure that they are clean of any gunk or debris. After you’ve thoroughly cleaned, the sensors remove the remaining water. To ensure that you’ve removed all buildup, raise the sensors a second time. However, rather than using dish soap, use a mixture of warm water with a few tablespoons of white vinegar. Vinegar is a great cleaning agent when removing build-up.

After a few minutes of rinsing, replace the plate and the filter, along with the side panels of your dishwasher. Once everything is back together, plug your dishwasher back in. The error message should be cleared.

ASKO Dishwasher No Lights

If you go to turn on your ASKO dishwasher and notice that there are no lights in the front, don’t panic. While this may seem like a serious issue, more often than not, it is a simple fix.

If your ASKO dishwasher has no lights, it is more often than not a power-related issue. Check to see if your dishwasher is plugged in and the outlet is working properly. If the outlet is not working, check your circuit breaker to ensure that the breaker has not been flipped. If everything is working properly, you most likely need to replace the fuses.

You can find the fuses in the control panel of your ASKO dishwasher. Unscrew the top so that you can access the black control box. This is attached simply by tabs on the side. Remove the top of the black control box and you will see two fuses. 

Disconnect the fuses from the terminal and install the new ones and reconnect the electrical connectors. You can simply snap that black box back into place and re-screw the screws into the control panel.

ASKO Dishwasher Start Light Flashing

If your ASKO dishwasher ‘start’ light is flashing, the first thing to check is to make sure that your dishwasher is closed. If the latch hasn’t engaged, the dishwasher will alert you by flashing the start light. 

If your ASKO dishwasher’ start’ light is flashing, take off the panel on your ASKO dishwasher door. The first place that you want to check is that the latch is functioning properly and is not stuck. If the latch is stuck, your start button will flash to indicate that your dishwasher is unable to start its cycle. 

Next, check that the connectors just below the latch are plugged in. If they are loose or if there is debris in the port, this can block the signal that lets your dishwasher is closed and that you are attempting to run the wash cycle. If you’re concerned about debris, you can use compressed air to clean out your connector ports. Be sure to keep the can at least ten inches away, otherwise, the pressure can damage your ports.

Your start light may also be flashing if your control panel may not be properly safe. You need to make sure that you fully clip the side latches when installing or doing any maintenance on your ASKO dishwasher. Otherwise, your panel won’t be able to receive any of the signals from the buttons on the front. Make sure that it is securely clipped in and close your dishwasher door. You should see that the start light has stopped flashing.

ASKO Dishwasher No Display

If your ASKO dishwasher has no display on the front, it might be that the display has gone into sleep mode. Try pressing a number of different buttons on your ASKO dishwasher to see if the display comes up. If it doesn’t, you’ll need to access your control panel. 

If your ASKO dishwasher has no display, access your dishwasher’s control panel by unscrewing the top screws. You will then be able to access the controls inside of your dishwasher. Check to make sure that the control panel is installed correctly and that all connections are secure.

If any connections are loose, plugging them back into their ports securely should fix your issue. However, if everything is connected correctly and you’ve checked to make sure that the fuses are working, you will most likely need a replacement touchpad for your ASKO dishwasher.

ASKO Dishwasher Cup/Pot Light Flashing

You may notice that your ASKO dishwasher cup or pot light is flashing. This is usually a warning that you see while the dishwasher is still running. There are a couple of issues that could be behind this warning light.

If your ASKO dishwasher cup or pot light is flashing, the first thing to check is that there are no obstructions blocking your drain. Remove any debris and check to see if the light shuts off. If it doesn’t, you can clean your sensors. Remove the sides of your ASKO dishwasher so that you can soak up any water that may have drained due to the overflow kicking in.

Once you’ve removed the water from beneath and inside your dishwasher, remove the drain and the panel and clean your sensors. Clean them first with a mix of warm water and dish soap and then a mixture of warm water and white vinegar. 

If this doesn’t help, or if your dishwasher continues running even when you open it, this is a sign that there is an issue with your control panel itself. Check to make sure that it is installed correctly. If it is, and the problem still persists, you will need to replace the control panel. 

ASKO Dishwasher No Light/Flashing/Blinking Problems

If your ASKO dishwasher has no light, flashing, or blinking light problems, the easiest place to start is with the latch. Make sure that your dishwasher is closed to the point where you hear that latch click. If your latch is closed, the two most likely areas that you should target are the control panel and the drainage sensors.
