Perfect dishwasher for a big family
We love this dishwasher, we’ve had a bosh in the past but a salesmen convinced me without reading reviews which aren’t great. But yes its amazing size and design fits everything, 5 yr warrentee. Perfect
Extremely poor product, will not recommend anyone to buy Asko Products.
Bought Asko Dishwasher on 11th June 2021 and it arrived on 16th June 2021.
15 minutes after delivery, I called Asko Customer Service and lodged the first complaint.
Seems dishwasher was already opened and was missing foot, without this it couldn't be installed. Took them 3 weeks to deliver the part and then finally the unit was running.
on 18th July Called Asko second time as Dishwasher was throwing F54 error. Technician came in few days and advised the dispenser is broken and needs to be fixed. Till then use dishwasher without rinse aid and o...n intense setting. without rinse aid every single utensil was wet and in around 6 weeks the fault part was replaced. Other issue is this machine uses tremendous amount of rinse aid. I bought this from Harvey Norman and had to ask those guys to assist. After they helped me, some Team Manager called me and ensured they will fix this and if any issues arises in future they will refund or exchange the unit. Now on 25/10/2021 Dishwasher is down again with another error code. Called Asko and now have to wait at least until 28/10 for technician to come inspect and fix the unit.
Purchased in June 2021 at Harvey Norman for $1,299.00.
I wouldn't buy this for free
Bought it with big hopes for best cleaning and drying abilities of this machine. It doesn't clean any stain on the plates. Even after rinsing the spaghetti plate it failed to wash it and I had to wash the plates manually. It's good to use as a shelving cabinet and that's about it. So disappointed

very poor customer service they don't care
Disappointed by Asko , I bought an expensive dishwasher and it arrived with the front door smashed, I keep calling and there is a new excuse all the time , now the new one is their delivery person cannot install because of COVID, I told them I don’t want it installed and the broken one will be ready to pickup at the front door so no physical contact, very poor customer service from Asko
I will let people know about this brand
Purchased in July 2021 for $1,500.00.

Great, quiet and easy to use
I was a bit suspicious to buy it as most of the reviews seems to be towards negative for this machine, but I went ahead as it looks a lot better than the competition and I could have bigger items such as wine glasses or side plates in the top rack and still wash big plates and saucepan on the bottom (the design is great). It’s 3 months now and I’m very happy with the dishwasher. Got installed by their lovely team that adjusted perfectly in my kitchen, show how to check blocks when potential error F11 could come up in the machine when food resid...ues are stuck on the pipe/filters before I call their customer service team. Had a Bosh before and always had to hand wash and soak before or after the bits of dry weetbix from the bowl (nuisance). With this machine, I don’t prewash anything and always been using the heavy and super dry program (recommended by the installer from Asko to stick with that on all the washes) and never had to hand wash anything. Dry sauce, dry cereal, everything comes out shiny and plastic containers are dry (no more drying on the dish rack afterwards) it’s super quiet too. I think the majority that buys Asko can’t be bother writing good review (human nature to complain when unhappy).

One of our most disappointing purchases
We had this dishwasher for 6 months before it unexpectantly died!. Almost 4 months later the part to repair the issue is still not available even though parts have arrived in Australia. How many other dishwashers have the same problem?
Product Good but Damage BAD
The dishwasher is working well. It's quiter than my 21 year old Asko.
However, the delivery damaged my security door. I've followed up several times (phone calls and emails) with promises of help given and I'm still waiting two months later for a resolution. NOT HAPPY!

ASKO DBI243IB.S.AU - one week in - so far so good!
I thought I'd write an honest summary of my one weeks’ worth of living with this dishwasher, as there is nothing in Choice reviews, and hardly any mention in product review for this model. I got bored of reading of people mentioning that they bought a Bosch to replace the world’s worst Miele, or someone buying a Miele because they've chewed through 3 Bosch's.
I just wanted something decent to replace a 12 year old Blanco (freestanding model but slid in under bench) and one week down and this ASKO has only about 3 or 4 washes through it; and s...o far, so good. Admittedly, I was leaning towards a Bosch Serie 6, however every store (HN, BL, TGG) all independently steered me towards the ASKO or Miele products. The more reviews of all brand I read the harder it was to make a decision. so in steps my wife who wasn't stretching the budget to get the Miele ($1600), so she (we) opted for the ASKO (it also was $200 off until Jan 31st so that helped steer us too) Also important to note, that we are a family of three and are rinsers, and I'd rather wash a frypan or saucepan that I know has baked on crud, rather than sticking it into a dishwasher and expecting it to scrub it for me, and be disappointed when you take it out and it’s still not 'clean'. I am also not a princess about having plastics dry in a dishwasher - plastics do not retain heat, and therefore will never dry as well as a metal or china item. We used to pop open the door on the old one when it finished, or take the plastics out and place them on the drying rack to air dry. So what I am liking: - The large capacity. The Blanco's top basket was on highest setting, and while this ASKO's top basket doesn't adjust, I found that you don't really need to, and still have more available height in both the bottom and tops racks. - Build quality seems good
Questions & Answers
Hello! There are so many bad reviews about ASKO dishwashers, I am worried! The very reason I am looking at buying an ASKO to replace our dying dish drawers is because of the cavity size, our kitchen cupboards are not 600 deep and our cavity space for dishwasher is just on 600 wide. I detest appliances sticking out. The ASKO dishwasher is the least deep dishwasher on the market and also one of the narrowest in width...many other brands are 600 wide and 600-625 deep so they just will not fit. Can anyone who is still enjoying their ASKO DB12431B.SAU please reply and put my mind at rest. I also would appreciate anything from those who are very unhappy with this machine. For a brand that Harvey Norman considers part of their top end range along with Miele and AEG with the least returns/repairs (this is what I was told) I am appalled to see the negative reviews, it just does not makes sense. Thank you!
is it true the next generation of this machine will be slightly quieter and also the cutlery tray will be sturdier. So Id like to know when this will be coming to market in 2021.
As well as knowing if there is a real difference to this model vs the one with the three water arms.
