SOURCE: my viking dishwasher does not rinse the soap scum off the dishes

Its not soap, its actually calcium from hard water. There is a new product out at that solves this problem once and for all. It is a small filter that goes under the sink and filters out the hard minerals that cause these spots from the water before they enter the dishwasher. It is very affordable (like 70 bucks) and even has a money back guarantee. After just one load you will be amazed how your dishes look.

I have an ASKO D3251. Door free falls when opened. No longer has tension to control downward movement.

Your springs are have two of them and will need to pull the unit out and inspect.usually on asko dishwasher you have to order the whole tension spring assembly .

My Asko D1716 dishwasher works fine apart from the soap dispenser. It won't open to release the soap.

Most likely it's a corroded door catch or a bad solenoid. Hopefully it's not the main control board. You'll need a repair manual or technician. A work around would be to use detergent tablets in the compartment

The soap dispenser on my ASKO Model 1805 Dishwasher broke, we got a replacement part from ASKO but can't figure out how to get the old one off to replace it?

Remove the outer door panel, the screws around the edge hold it on. The soap cup will depending on serial break be held down with metal flanges or small screws. Bend the flange or remove the screws and push the soap dispenser out.

The soap dispenser no longer closes and I see that my dishes aren't getting as clean as they should. It appears the closure clasp/hook has lost a piece so that it doesn't catch the lid. Can the entire...

Hi- Yes, you need replace the entire dispenser. Viking dishwashers are actually Askos on the inside. It's not too hard to replace if you are handy and can get the part from Viking directly. Unplug the unit or shut off the breaker and remove the front panel by removing the screws around the outside edge of the door. I believe the dispenser is held on with brackets (it's been awhile since i replaced one on an Asko or Viking). It should be pretty evident how to remove it once you have it opened up. If you are unsure at all call Viking and they can give you the number of a Tech. Good luck.

Asko 1876 dishwasher soap flap opens as soon as power on.

I don't know about the control panel - I am having trouble with mine too, but in regard to the soap dispenser -- don't use it anymore. Just buy those little tablets. That is what the secretary at the repair shop told me when I had a problem and that's been fine.
