OK performance. NOT worth the price.
Works and cleans just ok - the layout is good so flexible for dishes etc placement. However, after 1 1/2 years the internal plastic parts are deteriorating about the same rate as the dishlex we previously had at 1/3 the price.
Also drips from the seal.
Asko service is poor.
Don't waste your money asko.
Purchased in September 2017 for $1,800.00.
Very Happy - reliable, quiet and does a great job
We bought this when we built a house and ever since we've been happily using. Never have any problems at all to date. Very quiet, does a great job. I found it easier to load the dishes, cups and everything compare with other brands.
Purchased in March 2013.

Have had dishwasher for just over two years therefore just out of warranty not that it really matters as the fault is the electronic control panel. Touch buttons on control panel not responding. Very disappointing after having spent so much money to buy in the first place. Asko service center not very helpful, basically blamed me for the fault. Said that I must have opened the door immediately after washing or during a wash. Control panel is in a silly place at the top of dishwasher. Wouldn't help me at all. Said it would cost close to $600 to repair. Not good enough.
Stay away from Asko.

So shiny and clean inside even after almost 3 years use
I absolutely love this dishwasher even though at first I had my concerns it's well worth the money. It has a couple of floors. Since its touch screen to change the controls sometimes I cant get it to change to what I want or start straight away. Also the guys in the shop showed us you could fit 2 dinner plates side by side so the internal space was bigger and better than the cheaper ones. Well it may be bigger but no you cant fit 2 dinner plates side by side but still fits enough in it for us.
I purchased this dishwasher July 2015 after reading the review on Choice. I liked the simplicity and the room to place items on top and bottom as well as having an additional cutlery tray on the top. For the first couple of years it performed okay.The dishwasher for about the last twelve months started to have problems with the electronics where it was difficult to set wash, and finally just over 3 years being December 2018 there was a burning smell and the dishwasher ceased to go. With a burning smell and electronic panel not working properly ...it was decided to toss it out and buy a new dishwasher which after spending $2000.00 on this one was very disappointing. Following on from having a ASKO front end loader washing machine which also died after only three years I would no longer attempt my luck with ASKO.
Lots of space and glistening dishers
We had our last ASKO dishwasher for 12 years and were very happy. We just purchased this model and it is fantastic. I really like the cutlery draw, a real space saver leaving the bottom to hold all the plates. The top draw has lots of options to hold various size cups or glasses. The foldable tines on both levels are excellent and can be easily adjusted to suit the needs of the load. The cutlery tray and upper basket can be adjusted to suit the size of our plates. The glasses come out sparkling, there is no residue or water marks. The electronic display indicates when rinse aid is required. It’s quiet and easy to use. The dishers come out dry. Very satisfied.
It cleans so well ! Dishes are sparkling,
Only thing it too many arms and pieces inside that are flexible but collapse a lot . It’s was more costly but well worth it.
A lot of space and cleans so many plates.
The collapsing internal components are becoming a big problem though
So glad this was recommended
We had a super old ASKO previously which did the job adequately, but had my heart set on a Miele or Bosch to be truthful. But then I did some research. Turns out they are mostly not made in Germany or France anymore, and the quality has deteriorated. But that wasn't the deciding factor for us. We are a family with 3 kids so it gets a belting, and this machine fits in SOOO much more than a Miele! I highly recommend taking in yur glassware and plates to see what fits. For us, I wanted to fit a double row of our cups on the top draw - which this one does! This means I don't have to do a daily wash, I can do it every 2-3 days sometimes... Its super quiet and eficient and dries really well..
Just bought this for our new home. After having another brand of dishwasher for 13 years, our expectation was somewhat high. This unit so far has not disappointed us. It took a few washes to figure out the best wash option to use. The only thing about this unit was the need to use rinse aid, otherwise the items you wash will not dry. With our previous dishwasher, we never had to use rinse aid.
Well we had never heard of Asko before and were fairly sceptical. Originally wanted a Bosch because we love our washing machine but the Asko was same price and looked a bit better. So we went with it, got it home and were'nt dissapointed! There's loads of room and it gives awesomely ridiculous clean, to the point where dishes come out looking new! Its very quiet, can easily watch a movie in the same room with volume turned down as to not wake the kids and you just barely hear it swishing around in the background. Only real points where it makes...noise is when it briefly releases water down the sink hole maybe 3-4 times within a normal cycle and beeps at the end. If your in the market and can afford it, do it. We couldn't be happier. Looks stylish too. Thanks Asko!

Purchased this to replace an old low range Bosch dishwasher. Was looking to purchase another Bosch, however was drawn to the TurboDry function and the fact that this machine has internal LED lights (such a god send).
The sleek stainless steel unit has concealed control panel making it a fit for all style kitchens. The controls are easy to use and very logical. I also liked that this machine has a "time" program, allowing you to set the total length of time to program runs for.
The baskets are very flexible and spacious.
Overall, extremely happy with the purchase.
It comes with a high price tag like all asko stuff. the big disappointment is that it does not dry good. its not what I was promised by the person who sold it to me. I called them for , they came chagend the drying setting to the longest . did not help. I need to keep the door open for at least half a day until all the stuff dries . would not buy again
Easy to use quite heps of space
Love the hidden controls and the small display on the door ,washes well and has good drying on the long dry setting, the racks and trays have lots of options, that is thinking out side of the box. The light inside makes cleaning and packing a breeze, the extra temperature setting is a good option.
The water usage is much lower than my old LG.
The racks and trays feel more solid than other on the market and the door is also feels more ridged and solid.
I love this dishwasher, it cleans really well. I replaced my old Bosch and it does a much better job. The cutlery rack at the top increases space and with a dedicated washing arm for the cutlery it also cleans it well. The bottom rack is large enough to fit large plates and pots and I am never disappointed with the results. I can fit quite tall glasses in it too. It is not noisy and there are plenty of cycles to choose from.
I have had one problem with it about a week after it was first installed but Asko sent a technician out really quickly and fixed the problem and the machine has not missed a beat since then.
I definitely think it dries my dishes better than the Bosch did, everything but plastics come out dry.
I don't know why there are so many bad reviews here - this dishwasher is excellent. We replaced an old Blanco washer with this, mainly going with Asko as it was the ONLY brand that would take our large dinner plates without having to lean them over, so much room! They are expensive but you get what pay for here, it is SO QUIET. The only sound we hear from this is an occasional gurgle from the drain. The only items that don't come out dry are an occasional plastic ware. Would thoroughly recommend.
Worst Dishwasher Ever!!!
Purchased this dishwasher, installed it, it's beeped every night since the day I installed it, it drives me INSANE!!! I turn it off at the power point every night. Machine is EXTREMELY noisy so I can't run it at night. A normal wash takes 2.5 hours and a quick wash takes 2 hours, service guy told me it's faulty. He also told me the control panel needs replacing, it's a brand new dishwasher! Everything comes out wet and plastics are dripping wet so everything needs to be hand dried! I spent $2k on this piece of crap! I run my own business and wo...rk 6 days a week, impossible for me take a whole day off to wait around for the service guy. Going to put the dishwasher in the council clean up! Don't waste your money on this piece of rubbish! I also purchased the condenser dryer, the front melted after 2 years, the rubber seal around the lint filter melts and stretches and every time you open the dryer door the lint filter falls out! The lint filter is a nightmare to clean! Dryer is also going in the council clean up! Will NEVER buy Asko appliances again!!!
I have learnt two very important lessons from buying this product.
1. Don't buy it again.
2. Never ever listen to sales people.
It will clean well for weeks and then all of a sudden for reasons that remain known only to itself it won't clean and you are back to hand washing till you can try to finger out what's wrong or take another day off to call the service people out.
Faulty - again
So we had an ASKO D5457 that had a faulty door...after many months of dealing with the ASKO service department we managed to get them to replace it with a D5646.
Now guess what...this one is faulty: error code F10.
Please people read this review and don not ever buy an ASKO.
Faulty products (we're batting 2 for 2) and even worse service.
Not as good as I expected for the price
We have owned two Asko dishwashers in the past, so in our next home we decided to spend more and buy their top model. We have owned it for about two or three months and it was professionally installed. As with our other models, I usually just use normal wash, Finish tablets and load the same way, pretty much according to the manual. In other words I am not doing anything differently but this machine's performance is different. I find a few tea cups might come out stained, glassware is occassionally mottled and even though we select long dry, e...very load is still cold and wet when I open the machine, even hours later dishes are wet. That means having to leave the door wide open for a couple of hours or getting the tea towel out. With my older Asko dishwashers crockery always came out clean, glassware was spotless and when the cycle was complete the load was warm and dry. Maybe I need to do something differently, I am not sure. On the positive side, it is quiet, attractive, it has a light inside and the shelving holds many items including wine glasses. So overall it works ok and nothing has broken but I would not recommend this model to a friend.
Don't buy on star rating
I'm very happy with my dishwasher-1st time I've owned one. It stopped working after 5months, but service team quick and efficient at fixing the problem.
He has taken the disk out of the asko which was the water saving device. Apparently it gets put in there to help the star rating but then stops working so instead of replacing it they remove it. Costing me more in water now but I won't have that issue again. Hence don't buy your dishwasher on star ratings when like car companies- they cheat the system.

Questions & Answers
hey guys, are these dishwashers really THAT bad?? The reviews are so hit and miss, its hard to know what to make of them.
Hello i have had mine for just a month now no problems very good wash results , quiet operation no problems
I have had mine for about a year now and I am happy with it. Like all dishwashers it needs cleaning out regularly and the cycles are long, however that does not worry me. I think it washes the dishes well.
I am considering buying the D5646SSXXL but the review on the internet are scathing, most form people who have recently bought the machine are there issues with this machine ?
