The Asko d3120 is a very common dishwasher.  These unit have become more popular in the last several years as Asko is beginning to devolop their brand name in the United States.  Asko dishwashers have several common issues just like every other brand on the appliance market. More often than not, common repairs can be fixed without parts.

Asko uses an Auxiliary drain motor on their dishwashers.  The Auxiliary drain motor’s impeller often jams due to some kind of foreign debris. If your Asko dishwasher is not draining or wont drain all the water out, the drain motor or hose is likely blocked.  Accessing the Auxiliary  drain motor on a Asko is not that difficult.  To get to the pump so that you can clean it out, the lower toe kick panel will need to be removed. There are several screws on the front and top of the toe panel.  Once removed, the toe kick will pull forward and you can set the panel aside for now.  If you are this far, then you know before you stick your hand inside to turn the power off at the breaker or unplug the dishwasher.  Electrical shock and death could occur.  The drain motor is on the left hand side.  It is white in color usually.  Depress the tab on the side and twist the motor off.  Check the impeller and surrounding areas for an obstruction.
