I came by a 9 year old Asko 1585 Dishwasher being sold basically because it was dirty for $25.  It cleaned up beautifully and is running like a champ.  I love the well-thought-out engineering and heavy-duty construction, it reminds me of my Saab.  So I am looking forward to a long term relationship with this machine.  I was pleased to locate the Repairclinic with a full selection of parts, and your forum with knowledgable support for diy-ers.

I did put in for the Asko recall service, that should get a few new parts installed for free.

I am wondering if there are any preventive parts repacement that a decade-old 1585 would benifit from; seals, bearings, or whatever.  Considering the initial cost, my budget has some room, and I would rather be pro-active than suffer a breakdown that could lead to more costly failures. Many thanks.

There is not much preventive maintenance you can do... just make sure to use the Asko at least once a week,  so that the seals don't dry out.
 
 
 In general, Asko is about as reliable as their competitors... nothing special.   They are just rare.

Check the wiring in the control panel for tight connections at the terminals or you could be dealing with this.

Thanks for the tips, I will pull the panel and check those wires.  What causes them to get burnt?  Heat from inside the DW or excess resistance?  If the later it would seem a little conductive grease would be in order.

It turns out this DW was out of service for the last 4 years, so it has only seen about 5 years of use.  However, I wonder if Econo's issue about the seals would mean I should replace them since the may have dried out? or if it ain't leaking don't mess with it? Happy Hopps!

This $25 dishwasher deal just keeps getting better :D

The Asko service tech showed up yesterday for my free factory recall parts replacement.  During this process, the door was dissassembled so I could check those wires, not a hint of burnt harness.  The recall was to fix the problem that caused the overheating so there shouldn't be an issue in the future.

The best part was that as part of the recall I got a brand new $400 controller board and a new switch panel assembly. :cool:

Considering this was an upgrade from a 25-year-old, entry level, Kenmore we feel like we are living in Dishwasher heaven!

Thanks again for the help, oh illuminated ones.
