Quick Start Guide
Model 1595
We know you’re excited about owning an ASKO dishwasher and you’re anxious to get started, so here’s a brief summary of the
operation procedures. The page references in this Guide refer to the Use and Care Guide. To get the most out of your dishwasher’s
features, we recommend that you read the Use and Care Guide.

WASH PROGRAMS AND OPTIONS
Your ASKO dishwasher has several wash programs and options specifically designed to reduce your energy costs and make your
life easier. Press the touchpad(s) to select the desired program and option(s). The indicator lights will come on for the program and
options you select.
Wash Programs
Options
Pots and pans
For the heaviest soiled loads, such as pots, pans,
casseroles, etc.
When used with the low temperature settings, this
option further reduces energy consumption without
diminishing cleaning performance by lowering the
water temperature in the prewash and main wash and
extending the wash time.
Norm wash
For normal wash loads.
Temp
Lets you select a high or low water temperature for the
wash programs. (See “Temperature Options” on the
next page.) The indicator light glows when it’s on the
high setting and remains off when it’s on low.
Quick wash
For lightly soiled loads washed immediately after
use. Items such as fine china and crystal can be
washed in this program, but you should use the
low temperature setting and turn the Heat dry off.
(Recommend 130° F)
Rinse and hold
To rinse dishes that you plan to wash later that
day.

Activates the heating element during the drying cycle to

Delay
Lets you delay running the dishwasher for five hours.
After making your selections, press Delay then press
Start and close the door. The machine will start on its
own five hours later.
Start
After you’ve selected your wash program and options, press this touchpad to start the dishwasher. If you’ve started the
dishwasher then decide to change a program or an option, press and hold Start for five seconds to cancel the program
and stop the machine. Then press the touchpads for your desired selections and press Start again. The drain pump will
run to remove any dirty water from the dishwasher before starting the newly selected program.

PROCEDURES
Refer to this page in
the Use & Care Guide.
1. Load the dishwasher. (There’s no need to pre-rinse. Simply scrape off large food particles before
you load the dishes.)
2. After you’ve pushed the baskets back inside the unit, manually rotate the upper and lower spray
arms to be sure they turn freely.
3. Make sure there is rinse aid in the dispenser. Add rinse aid, if needed.
4. Add automatic dishwashing detergent and close the dispenser cover. (See “Amount of Dishwashing
Detergent to Use” below.)
5. Close the door securely.
6. Select the desired wash program and option(s). A red light appears above the selected touchpad(s).
7. Press Start. The dishwasher will start.

AMOUNT OF DISHWASHING DETERGENT TO USE
We recommend that you use only unscented, granular automatic dishwashing detergent. Generally, one tablespoon of detergent is
needed for a normal wash load. More heavily soiled items, however, may need more detergent. Also, the amount of detergent
needed can vary due to differences in water hardness. The harder the water, the more detergent you may need. (See page 5.) In any
case, you should never use more than three tablespoons of detergent.

The wash programs (except Rinse) have water temperature options,
as shown in the table to the right. The LED displays the temperature
selections in degrees Celsius. The table gives both the Celsius and
Fahrenheit temperatures. Once you select a temperature, it will remain
selected until you change it (except the Quick wash programs, which
reverts to 130° F). We recommend that you use the lower temperature
settings whenever possible to conserve energy.

Program Time
When a program starts, the LED displays the time it took that program to run last time. As the program runs, the LED displays the
remaining time. If the time exceeds an hour, the display alternates between the hour and minutes remaining. The hour is designated
by an h (e.g., 1h).
The program times may not always be the same because of variations in the household hot water temperature. The dishwasher
heats the water to the proper temperature for the program selected, so if the temperature of the water entering your dishwasher is too
low, the dishwasher will run longer because it takes longer to heat the water. Raising your water heater setting could help to shorten
the cycle times. If this doesn’t help, call the ASKO Advisory Center.
Delay Time
If you select the Delay option, the LED window displays “5h.” To cancel delay, press the Delay touchpad until the LED displays zero.
Fault Codes
The LED window displays three fault codes, as illustrated below.
Indicates a fault in the heater. Call your local
service technician.
Indicates high water level in the machine. Call the
ASKO Advisory Center.
Indicates a thermistor fault (heater control). Call your
local service technician.
This simply means the door isn’t closed completely.

UNDERSTANDING
INDICAT
When the dishwasher has finished, all of the indicator lights will come on. The lights will remain on until you open the door. When
you open the door, the indicator light for the wash program you last used will come on. If you used the high temperature options and
the heat dry option, those lights will come on, too.
If all of the lights on the control panel flash in sequence, this means the machine has detected an overfill. (See page 7.) Should this
happen, call the ASKO Advisory Center.
