Customer Question

Asko D3250 keeps leaking into the drip pan underneath and causing the pump to run continuously. This has been an intermittent problem and sometimes goes a while and then acts up again. Is there a bad seal that is causing the pan to fill?

Are you getting any error codes when this is happening?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I believe so. One of the wash cycle lights is usually blinking. I just sponged all of the water out so not sure which one.

There is often water left in the bottom of the dishwasher when it is finished wasing

Does the delicate light sound like the one?

ok so this can mean a few things are the problem here. Your water inlet valve could possibly be the problem but I am leaning more towards the drain pump being at fault or the the float switch. I am leaning mostly to the float switch .

The float switch seems to be working. When the pan gets full is when the pump continues to run. When I remove the water from overflow/flood pan the pump motor stops and then everything works fine again for a while until it fills again. Sometimes within a few days, sometimes within a few months

The float switch is supposed to tell the control board that it is full and what is happening is your water is draining into the drip pan because it is overflowing. So in order to fix this issue you would need to replace the float switch .

I see. So this must be a different float switch.

This dishwasher doesn't have a float switch inside the dishwasher near the lower rack.
Expert:  Webb-Guy replied 1 month ago.

Were you able to find your float switch?

I noticed this question was still open so I wanted to follow up with you to see how it was going and to see if you needed anything further?
