Customer Question
I have ans Asko...

I have ans Asko D3250 that shows " too much water " error.

Contractor's Assistant: How long has this been going on? And how severe is the problem?

Dishwasher wont start. Pump runs with door open. I discovered water in bottom of dishwasher when Iopened the rear. Discovered no leaks and float switch seems ok.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Float switch engages pump when I push styrofoam float up. Pump takes out water from the bottom of the dishswaher filter/screen assembly so theres no blockage. Impellar spins freely, i gave that a few turns

I cannot detect any leaks. I discovered a disloged rubber washer on the small knob beside the soap dispenser compartment on the inside. Would that make water enter the bottom of the dishwasher ?

Is there water in the flood basin?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
There was. Could not see any leaks. I also totally dried out the bottom of the dishwasher and even used a hairdryer so there is no moisture left behind. I cleaned out all 3 filters and spun impellar when looking for any debris. None found inside the impellar. Pump is taking out the water inside the dishwasher
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 4 months ago

Are you able to run it with it out to watch it to see if there is a leak? You have todry it all up and get the flood float to reseat and then try it out a bit so you can monitor it for a leak that is really the only way to find one. It should start after it is all dry.

All that I ask is please use the FINISH BY RATING link on your page to select a *****5 STAR rating***** before leaving.....otherwise I receive ZERO credit for assisting you. Also this does not close the question out and you can come back anytime for FREE right here to me......Happy Holidays!

Did that and could not find any leaks. I noticed a badly seated O ring on the knob beside the soap dispenser. Would that let water into the door and run down into the flood basin ?
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 4 months ago

Yes it could easily let a bunch of water into it. That may be the issue for sure!

I ran it to look for leaks but pump runs a bit the blinking " too much water error" however I dried out the flood basin really well and the error still comes up. Is there any way to reset the error code ?
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 4 months ago

SHut the breaker off to the unit for a full minute it will clear all codes out.

the float is sitting level at bottom. Where is the breaker, in my house power panel ? I have been unplugging it for longer than a minute if thats supposed to work.
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 4 months ago

Yes unplugging the unit is the same thing if the float is down it should clear unless the pressure switch tube is plugged or the pressure switch got wet...CLICK HERE

Ok, thanks. I know it's taking a while and you have a life. i appreciate your help. Its bone dry and I located it for what its worth.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Forgot to mention, my daughter put regular dishwashing detergent in machine a few days ago, was very foamy. We removed all the suds but I dont know if affects any components. I took off the bottom spray arm and removed cap. Both holes looked clear and I even blew a little air through the holes to maybe clear it of any debris or left over soap.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Are you there ?
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 4 months ago

Yes I am here does the code come up instantly also did you find the pressure sensor?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Pressure switch and any electric components were all dry.
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 4 months ago

I woulds say the board was damaged somehow. I would first put a new pressure sensor in it as that is a lot cheaper than the board, then if it continues with the error replace the board. There really is nothing else that would casue that issue. Just make sure the float switch is actually working.
