Premium price for worst quality!!!
Don't waste your valuable money and precious time on this. I bought this for my new home with other high quality appliances. It broke-down 3 times within a year with different error codes. Straight after installation it didn't work with some sensor error so had to wait 3 weeks to get it fixed. The technician came and reset the machine. The dishwasher has also continues problem with overflowing error code. See the images. I made a mistake that I didn't check enough reviews prior to purchase this, but it's not living up to it's price. Premium price for worst quality. I have decided to return this dishwasher. Don't expect much from ASKO service as well, I will write separate review on CS.

Motherboard failed twice
The motherboard has failed twice.
I don’t change the settings because when I tried the mother board failed. This time a few days ago the mother board didn’t light up.
I scrape dishes before I stack them. The dishwasher doesn’t become clogged. The first failure was when it was under warranty. AsKO say theyLl repair this for free as well. What happens when it fails again?

Our old Asko which came with the house stopped working after many, many years, and we had to buy another dishwasher.
We couldn’t decide between Asko and Miele. I didn’t want a lower priced one because we were told by the SA that they were flimsy and since we had an Asko, it would be good to stick with Asko. I sort of agree with this.
We paid for delivery, and installation and to take away the old dishwasher. The dishwasher was delivered about 1 hour late, but these things happen, so just make sure you set aside time to wait for the delivery a...nd installation. I have to compare this new Asko to the older Asko we had, well, that was more manual and this is so hi tech. It’s so hi tech, I’m still figuring out how to use it. I’ve read the manual several times, but only know to use the Eco mode for now. I’m still trying to figure out the benefit of top rack only or bottom rack only mode. We were given a little freebie of 2 Finish dishwasher tablets and a little Finish dishwasher rinse aid as well. Nice freebies, but could have been a bit more instead of just a few.
A couple of weeks in and finding it a decent and quiet dishwasher
Long fair review ahead.
I have to admit, the poor reviews have me really concerned. I would not have bought this dishwasher if I'd read these reviews first. I actually went into HN's to buy a different dishwasher, but when I did the side by side comparison against it and this equivalent ASKO, I was convinced that this ASKO dishwasher was a more robust, better built and better featured unit. It has better quality shelves, a more sturdy door, better stacking features, better options... so bought it instead.
The button layout is an interesting ...design choice and the programming options are a little bewildering. This is not the dishwasher for the person who doesn't read manuals. I also miss the finality of shutting the door and pressing a single button to kick off a wash cycle like on my old dishwasher. In ASKO land, you turn on the dishwasher, select the mode you want through a series of sequential button presses then press the go button THEN shut the door. You'll get used to it. Hot tip, don't mash the buttons and they should last. I paid for the delivery, install and disposal of the old dishwasher option, and the unit was installed without fan fare. The tech was knowledgeable but he rushed through the demo - a really poor thing to do especially if I was an elderly person trading up from a trusted older and much simpler dishwasher - hence my comment about reading the manual. As far as manuals go, it's not too bad. Take your time with it. Read it a few times. Let it sink in. At first glance it is bewildering and takes some interpretation in a few places.

very Loud, No time remaining display, poor wash and dry
Wish I paid attention to previous reviews. Dishwasher is supposed to be 44db and for $1800 price range and is very loud. No time remaining display, despite statin it does (displays how long your last wash took which is useless information). display takes a while to come on and it needs door open to turn on. further delays as it forces you to read propaganda that its scandinavian every time before you can operate it. average wash, inefficient water and electricity as needs extra dry selected to dry properly. Looks ok. dish rack high enough but too narrow to take plates next to each other.

Dishwasher broke 3 times in first 8 months of purchase- Horrible buy- need a replacement
Cleaning is good but the durability is terrible.
Customer service is horrible. After multiple calls that somehow got hung up on me (even after waiting for more than 50 mins at each instance), I had to finally wait for more than 1 hour on phone to book an appointment.
First 2 times when the display stopped working (which meant I could not use it), I was not even offered a full replacement saying that we are replacing the digital panel and that they identified a fault with this specific part in their production batch. Now this has happened to me...

Don't bother unless you extend warranty
Was sold this dishwasher based on being a so called good brand. The first warning sign was our new machine was installed and it didn't even work. So glad we paid to get it installed so it was clear it was not us that caused the issue. We waited a week for another machine to be delivered. Less than 6 months in with the second machine and it stopped working. We have been waiting a month now for a new circuit board. Still no ETA on the repair. I am not impressed considering the money we paid for this machine. I will not waste money on further repairs outside of the warranty. It's a dud.

The cleaning was average, but the after sale service was diabolical!
Delivered in April 2020.
After 15 years with a Miele built in which had washed well but, had finally done it’s dash, we decided to try another brand. Initially I wasn’t that impressed, especially with the cleaning of glasses and the top rack for knives and forks did not ever get clean... a waste of time. Then in December 2020 it stopped!
Just did not go. We called the approved repairer who came promptly and assessed a new circuit board is required. Told possibly 2 to 3 weeks. December came and went.... ok Covid ok Xmas... but no communicatio...

Buy Miele and never regret
New purchase Asko dishwasher to replace 14 year-old Miele that was still going strong because we liked the simple brushed metal look. But Asko leaves dishes wet and still soiled. Plasticky trays and smaller capacity than old machine. Am going to replace it with new Miele and wear the costly mistake.
