Asko dishwashers have become essential appliances in modern homes. However, they can sometimes encounter technical issues, and it is important to identify and resolve these problems. Asko dishwasher error codes serve as a valuable source of information for users to diagnose issues and intervene when necessary. In this article, we will explore the meanings of Asko dishwasher error codes and their possible solutions. By doing so, you can enhance the performance of this advanced appliance, make the user experience smoother, and minimize the need for repair services.
Most Common Codes
|F1||Temperature stop fault. The temperature rise is less than 5°C in ten minutes. Check: Element, thermistor, water level, circulation pump and control unit, wiring.|
|F2||Overfilling. Too much water in the machine (pressure sensor) or float activated. Check: Drain pump (blockage in hoses), flow sensor, inlet valve, leakage, wiring.|
|F3||Thermistor fault. Interruption or >80°C. The programme exits from the heating stage and continues in the process. Indication only in the service menu. Check: Thermistor, control unit.|
|F4||Water intake fault. < 80 pulses within 60 seconds or correct number of pulses is not achieved within 255 seconds. Programme interrupted. Check: Water supply, flow sensor, inlet valve, wiring.|
|F5||Valve leakage. > 80 pulses detected when the inlet valve is deactivated. Certain models attempt to remedy the leak first. Any programme in progress is interrupted (drain pump activated). Check: Leakage through inlet valve, flow sensor.|
|F6||Pressure sensor fault. Output signal > 4.8V. The programme continues. Indication only in the service menu. Check: Pressure sensor, control unit and wiring.|
|F7||Pumping out fault. Water not evacuated after 120 seconds’ pumping out. Programme interrupted. Check: Drain pump, hoses, installation of drain hose, control unit and wiring.|
|F8||Blocked filter. The pressure sensor senses excessively low pressure during the final rinse. Indication after end of programme. Check: Filter, sump (pressure chamber), pressure sensor.|
|F9||Circulation fault. The pressure sensor senses excessively low pressure (e.g. no water in the machine) or excessively high pressure (e.g. the circulation pump is defective). Check: Circulation pump, filter, water level, pressure chamber and pressure sensor.|
|F10||Overfilling. Check Drain pump (blocked hose), flow meter, inlet valve, leaks and cables.|
|F11||Water outlet fault. Check Drain pump, hoses, drain hose fittings, control unit and cables. Also check whether filter is blocked.|
|F12||Water inlet fault. Check Water inlet, flow meter, inlet valve and cables.|
|F40||Inlet valve leakage. Check Leak through inlet valve and flow meter|
|F41||Temp stop fault. Check Element, thermistor, water level, circulation pump, control unit and cables.|
|F42||Thermistor fault. Check Thermistor, plugs, wire harness, and control unit.|
|F43||Pressure sensor fault. Check Pressure sensor, control unit and cables.|
|F44||Turbidity sensor fault. Check Water quality, filters, turbidity sensor and drain system.|
|F45||Spray arm diverter fault. Check Spray arm diverter (functioning gearbox, switches and cables).|
|F52||Water level fault|
|F54||Overfilling water 2. Turn off the water supply valve.|
|F56||Circ. pump fault.|
|FA||Turbidity sensor fault. Indication only in the service menu. The machine assumes high turbidity for “choice of route” in the automatic programme. Check: Water quality, filter, turbidity sensor, drain system.|
|FB||Spray arm divider fault. Position contact is continuously closed or open. The programme proceeds. Indication only in the service menu. Check: Spray arm divider (function of gearbox, contacts and wiring).|
|L6||Rinse aid indication|
|L7||Door open/Close door|
|Close the door||The door is open. Close the door.|
|Temp stop fault||Temperature increase less than 5°C (41°F) in ten minutes. Program continues with the process. Only indicated in service menu.|
|Overfilling||Overfilling. Too much water in the machine (pressure sensor) or float activated. If the water has not been emptied within 60 seconds, the program stops (drain pump activated).|
|Thermistor fault||Communication between the thermistor and control unit has stopped or the thermistor is reporting temperatures greater than 80°C (176°F). Program continues with the process. Only indicated in service menu.|
|Water inlet fault||< 80 pulses within 60 seconds or correct number of pulses not achieved within 255 seconds. Program stops.|
|Inlet valve leakage||Water intake detected when inlet valve deactivated in program sequence or standby. In this case the machine attempts to close the valve by opening it for 2 seconds and then closing it again. If water flow through the valve is still detected any current program is stopped (drain pump activated).|
|Pressure sensor fault||Output signal > 4.8 V. The program continues. Only indicated in service menu.|
|Water outlet fault||Water not drained after 120 seconds draining. Program stops.|
|Turbidity sensor fault||Only indicated in service menu. The machine assumes high turbidity in case of “uncertainty” in the auto program.|
|Diverter fault||Position switch always closed or open. The program continues. Only indicated in service menu.|
|Humidity sensor fault||“Humidity sensor fault” (only in service menu) Check Humidity sensor, cables, fan, damper and Wax motor.|
|Clean filter||The display indicates “Clean filter” automatically after every 300 cycles.|

Control Panel Buttons Meaning
What is the F12 code on my Asko dishwasher?
Water inlet fault. Check that the water tap is on. Check whether dishwasher inlet hose is connected to a pressure limiting valve (some pressure limiting valves may restrict the supply of water to the dishwasher).
What is error code F2 on my dishwasher?
Water is not draining. Check that the drain hose is not blocked or kinked. Check that the filter combination is not blocked.
What is error code 7 on Asko dishwasher?
Faults F7 and F11 is a water outlet fault, meaning dishwasher is not able to drain the water.
How do I fix the F10 code on my Asko dishwasher?
The most likely cause is a failed drain pump. However, a drain hose that's clogged, pinched, or kinked can also prevent the flow of drain water, triggering the same code. You can fix this error by clearing or replacing the drain pump, as well as correcting the drain hose as needed.
