  • Great washing machine!

    Jun 25, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: superb build quality, looks, great wash quality
    Cons: expensive, does not provide audible beep when washing program has ended

    Summary: I must admit I was surprised by the amount of negative reviews of this machine as our experiences could not have been more positive. I suspect that some of the other users are using incorrect detergent (front load washers require specialised low-sudsing ... read more

    Pros: Fits under the standard kitchen counter.
    Cons: everything else
    Durability - extremely poor, on a repeated basis
    Noise is noticeable when spinning.

    Summary: We bought a set of Asko washer and Dryer new in 1998 to go under the counter in our kitchen. We plumbed the new setup with only cold water, which was what the ASKO required.  I did a lot of research before my purchase, and the opinions were positive ... read more

    Summary: When I bought and remodelled my first home, I wanted an energy efficient, nicely styled washing machine and dryer. I considered the Maytag Neptune, but the salesman(who owned one told me of the problems he was encountering and sold me on the Asko. ... read more

    Pros: Super Swed
    Cons: No cons

    Pros: Low Water Usage
    Cons: Everything else-cheap,leaves clothes dingy,breaks frequently

    Summary: I totally regret wasting money on this washer. Unit has been repaired 5 times in four years. The motor has been replaced twice. This morning it broke again. The door latch is broken again, third time. Once I figure out how to get my clothes out of the ... read more

  • What a disaster!

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Small size and energy-efficient
    Cons: Leaves clothes dirty and breaks down within weeks.

    Summary: We were sold on the ASKO by a salesman who promised the "whitest whites" we had ever seen and no decrease in load size, and decided to design an entire bathroom renovation around this small unit. Seven weeks later, we are cursing ourselves and ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent Durability, Built like a Tank, Appealing to use, Lots of Extras
    Cons: Need better instruction on End User Use of machine

    Summary: First of all, I am a "Pro Consumer", I work hard for my dollars, and when I drop $1,700.00 on a washer or appliance I research it thoroughly, BEFORE THEY GET MY MONEY- After witnessing the demise of 3 Maytag Neptunes Rip themselves apart, and ... read more

  • Quite good, at a cost

    May 3, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cleaning performance, low water usage.
    Cons: Cost to buy, smallish drum size.

    Summary: To-date, the opinions here seemed unduly harsh and mostly at odds with my experience, so I thought I'd chime in. It is true that the normal cycle times take around 1 3/4 hours (not the "super quick" wash, which takes around 35 minutes), ... read more

  • Just say No to Asko!

    May 3, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Nice looking, solid construction
    Cons: Read the review. Too many to list.

    Summary: I purchased the combination washer and dryer about 1.5 years ago. At first, I was impressed by how cool the washer was. The idea of using so little water and detergent was appealing to me. Unfortunately, this wasn't my actual experience. Here is the ... read more

  • My Biggest Mistake Too-Part I

    Dec 6, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Available in Stainless Steel Finish
    Cons: Too many to list in one line!

    Summary: I couldn't agree more with XK8ER. I decided to remodel my laundry room (since I spend so much time in there)and get a new washer/dryer. My extensive research led me to believe that the top of the line Asko units (W660 Washer and T780 dryer) were the ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quiet, takes up less space
    Cons: Doesn't get clothes clean, small capacity

    Summary: I have been married for 34 years. When my old wash machine of 16 years gave up the ghost, I decided it was time for a treat. So I went out and purchased the Asko 660. I thought because it was the most expensive, it would do the best job. The salesman ... read more

    Pros:
    Can fit in a small space. The doors can be switched to open opposite.
    Cons: Constant repair!!!!

    Summary: Purchased my asko washer and dryer in 2000.  Maybe it was time for the instrument panel to fall off. The little plastic catches have deteriorated.  I have had both repaired off and on the whole time I have owned them. I always have to ... read more
