Recently bought the ASKO as a replacement for my AEG that while was still happily working after 22 years had to be replaced when couldn’t get replacement for a rusted out spring for the door.
Unfortunately ASKO doesn’t live up to my expectation. A rinse is a must for eggs, avocado and porridge soiled dishes and cutlery otherwise they come our caked on and have to be scraped off. So much for water efficiency.
The first morning as the sun came through the window I noticed some shiny and grey bits protruding from under the door. Upon checking it o...

Rinse free, very quiet, perfect results!!
So happy I invested in this dish washer. It runs through its cycle super quietly and with the three spray arms in action, dirt cant hide and we get perfect results every wash.
Gone are the days of pre rinsing.
Super turbo drying means glasses come out streak free and nothing needs additional drying.

Expensive Yes, Value for money.... not even close
Purchased this unit after looking at a lot of different brands and was attracted to the internal layout as well as the comparison against other units. Turns out I missed several critical points that would have made all the difference. The power button requires you to open the door before turning the unit on or off if installed under a kitchen bench, kind of like putting the key to start a car under the bonnet.
The most frustrating part of this machine is like others have stated, it cleans dishes occasionally, but that is more often than th...e number of times it makes it through a wash without erroring out for a variety of reasons including; not enough water in the sump, too much water in the sump, or misc error. The last wash took four resets to get the machine to run for more than 5 minutes continuously .

I paid 1200 dollars for adud now its out of warranty too bad. the machine was an D5436WH white. it has been discontinued no wonder. I am now expected to pay in excess of a new machine to get this fishing boat anchor fixed. Swedish technology at its best. absolute crap

NEVER AGAIN. Cost us 2 or 3 times the amount of another dishwasher and we've only had our asko dishwasher for approximately 5 months, and it now won't power on at all.Before that it functioned quite good and the quality appeared good, but when I Called asko about our warranty, the first day I was on hold for 2 hours and 7 minutes without so much as a pickup , the next time was 30 minutes. When I finally got an answer the third day, we were told that it was a 2-3 week wait. They cancelled our appointment 2 days before technician was due to arriv...e and deferred us to a private contractor who hasn't given us an exact day he can come, but already knows what part is dead because it's a common fault. If they are aware that this fault exists, and is a weakness in design, but are saying that they are top shelf quality, and charging 3 times the amount of other dishwashers, then unfortunately this all equates to a brand that I do not trust and neither should you. The after sales customer service is below average and somewhat "exclusive" making things even more difficult. Never again

This dishwasher is the worst I have ever had. We had heard such good reviews about it. It cleans okay but does not dry the dishes at all. Everything is dripping wet at the end of the cycle. We have tried different cycles, but same issue. I contacted Asko and they sent a technician home. He did nothing and just asked us to use rinse aid every time. I contacted Asko again but they are not helping anymore and have asked me to contact a 3rd party service to get it fixed. So basically it is no more Asko's responsibility. I am very disappointed and would not recommend anyone to buy this dishwasher.

Purchasing the Asko was a life changer. Such a fantastic dishwasher that is easy to use and has sparkling dishes on its completion.
The trade/installer who attended was prompt and very professional, friendly and experienced.
He was very well groomed and had fantastic customer service, he even cracked a few jokes which is always nice.
I would highly recommend the purchase of this dishwasher and dealing with Asko has been a dream.

Ours isn’t cleaning the dishes properly
On initial inspection it looks and sounds like a great machine. It’s hardware is robust and it’s very quiet but that’s where the good points end. It doesn't clean your dishes. Considering that's it’s only job we’re not impressed. For context we have tried every wash option. We are rinsers too. The only way it works is if you half fill it and put it on the heaviest wash cycle.

So far so good
We've had this dishwasher for a month now and so far so good.
We previously had a Bosch Serie 8 that died after 4 years. We had a few problems with the Bosch - ponding at the bottom that I'd have to scoop out and then clean the mesh filter, beeps really loudly when the cycle finishes (so not great in the middle of the night), writing on the on/off and start button completely faded so friends couldn't figure out how to turn it on and then finally it lost all power and would have cost us over $800 to fix (main power boards failed). Bosch suggest...
Questions & Answers
We have just installed an Asko dishwasher, and it is not drying the dishes, instructions said to fill dishwasher and use extra dry setting, still very wet, I had to dry all the dishes this morning after a heavy wash and extra dry, so far it is, a very disappointing purchase. Any suggestions on getting it t work as advertised
Why is my new asko dishwasher not cleaning my dishes? So disappointing. I have it on the heavy wash, is there another wash which is better???
Hi Jane, we absolutely love our dishwasher. We use the normal wash cycle which we put all sorts of dishes in including frying pans etc, it cleans it great. It might be the tablets you are using. We just use the Aldi brand tablets. We also use rinse aid, which helps your dishes sparkle.
Hope you sort it out
Thanks, I'm using rinse aid and finish tablets
I have the same problem with my newly bought ASKO dishwasher that it does not clean the dishes. How did you get it refunded? I am so disappointed with asko.
The problem is still not repaired. I'm having never ending trouble getting one of their techs that has the parts. There's never been a mention of a refund from them, and I doubt it is even an option. I've heard a few bad experiences now so I'm hoping others will be made aware
