Have had the machine for 6 months and I am very pleased with it. The design allows a spin of 1400 revs with out any vibration of the chassis. It has a quick wash setting and also a pause button to allow the adding of further items to the wash. The controls are easy to use and there are multiple options. There is no problem with mold which develops on most other machine door seals.

Works fine, if you don’t cancel a programme
We purchased a new washing machine because our previous Electrolux randomly flooded the laundry from brand new. Rather than request another callout after the warranty expired, we bought a new machine. Guess what? Since purchase in December 2020, we have cancelled a programme twice prior to commencing (meaning no water had entered the machine) and both times water leaked from ‘somewhere’ and saturated the laundry floor. It works fine otherwise, but who wants a flooded laundry whenever a programme is interrupted? Not this little black duck! We thought we were buying a better quality, more reliable washer. Disappointed.

The best machine I've ever owned!!!
I absolutely love my Asko Machines! I have the washing machine, Heat pump dryer and dishwasher in this brand and top say in ecstatic with them is an understatement.
Went from having Bosch appliances ( which I will never own again) to the Asko appliances and I'm glad I did.
They cost more to buy as a premium product but the longevity of gotten from them so far far outweighs their costing.
Thanks Asko for providing such a fantastic product.

Regretful purchase Paid $1699 last month
Very disappointed with the lengths of time to wash any normal set of clothes. Also, why should a machine need to heat its own water when every house (99.99%) has running hot water. To my mind we are paying twice to heat water for washing1!
Gave it two stars because as yet, it has NOT leaked nor broken down.
Really regret choosing this one!

Leaks, hard on clothes and takes forever to balance load for spinning because of poor design, S L O W.
Other reports of difficulty closing and broken glass are probably due only to the removable sticker saying "Close Here" being put at the top of the door instead of over the catch on the right - so that's easily fixed.
However, #1. This machine doesn't cope well with soap powders, which cake and block the outlet to the drum; #2. The body of the soap dispenser is very shallow, so it overflows between the outer and inner case if the water pressure is too high or you use powder which blocks; #3. The connection from the drum is very short and the j...

Asko washing machine leaks and customer service non existent!
Purchased this Asko washing machine purely because of how good the brand is meant to be and how much the Good guys sale rep talked it up. Unfortunately during warranty we had to get it repaired as it was leaking (ie flooding the laundry) (the repairman said he had never seen a fault like this before and it was rare). Just outside of warranty the same fault happens again.. we have now been waiting since October 2020 for the part - machine is clearly faulty however Asko have been terrible to deal with. We have to constantly chase them up and now ...it has been 4 months with a washing machine we have been unable to use. As a ‘gesture of goodwill’ Asko have offered to repair it free of charge. It’s a very expensive washing machine to have just sitting there unable to do anything with! Their parts are obviously hard to get if anything goes wrong with the machine. Wish we had bought a different brand. Would not recommend Asko or their products to anyone - we are VERY disappointed.

Leaks, cycles are too long
Brought the W2084C.W.AU 8 kg from the Good Guys based on name ‘Asko’ and salesman’s advice.
Machine leaks randomly from the front, noisy when we told whisper quiet, no short cycles like our old Bosch.

Purchased in July 2018 (so 5 months out of warranty). Running a normal cycle on the weekend when an almighty racket from the laundry brought us all running. Found that the drum had detached from it's mounts during spin cycle threatening to bash the machine through the laundry wall. Contacted ASKO who attempted to put me through to someone technical (on hold voice message indicated that the tech support could not offer technical advice !!!) Waited but not put through. Replaced next day with F & P unit.

Great for a while, bad for long term
Decided to buy a higher end dishwashing machine, which brings with it some sense of longevity. Anyway, had a problem whilst under warranty (all good), and then a problem out of warranty - $260 from the Asco service centre, and then less than 12 months later, the same problem again, but they wont warranty it - surely a replacement of a new part should come with a 12 month warranty

We bought over a year ago, and it has been a constant source of frustration. As in reviews of other models, this has ruined towels, cotton clothes and even jeans. Everything is hard and unpleasant to use. Have tried using less detergent, extra rinses, warm wash, vinegar rinse, baking soda, lower spin speed all to no avail. Ditching this and buying another brand.
Love this machine. We purchased it in May 2020. So easy to use, I have tried many cycles, easy to clean. I have washed my super king coverlet & it washed it beautifully. I would recommend this machine .

Love this machine.
Had this washing machine for 4 months now and have been using without any issues. I read a lot of reviews before and after purchasing the machine and realised lot of the issues are due to user error. Especially the water leaks if you overload the machine. No need to give a bad review for an excellent performing washing machine if you don’t have the common sense to use it.

Leaks constantly with design flaw, clothes not cleaned well at all, asko quality has fallen to a new low
After owning Bosch machines for 30 years we gave asko a try, worst mistake ever, it doesn't wash well and we have had 3 techs come out to try to resolve why it leaks water a lot of the time. Reason they say if you put too much detergent in it overflows via the dispensary. Considering the feedback line it only needs about 300 ml of water to then ruin your floors with leaks etc
Ive had it "leak" using no detergent so dispute the constant "Escuse" its suds
Worst still when i asked for a refund they said no as they mysteriously only have one visit recorded even though i have had 3.

Can you believe it! It leaks from the front door. WTH
We've used this washing machine for a month. I've used front loaders for over 15 years and this is the first time a washing machine has leaked from the front door. Unbelievable.
ASKO service is non existent. I was on hold for 20 mins with no answer. Outrageous!

Questions & Answers
Have had the Asko for 4 months and find it is pilling most items of clothing. Apart from the hand wash cycle all cycles seem to be aggressive. I am turning garmets inside out, sorting loads according to fabric texture and weight, using mild detergent, weighing wash load, etc. In addition it does not rinse adequately. What can I do to improve performance?
You can create your own wash cycle buy going to the settings. It allows you to change the spin dry speed and temperature and rinse on. Select the closest wash to what you think is good the adjust the temperature spin speed etc then save to your favorite. The only thing I haven't figured out yet is the time it takes
Thanks I do that, I wash always cold, spin 400rpm in hope to reduce pilling. Washing cycle tumble speed cannot be altered which is the issue I think as all cycles seem too aggressive. I just wonder if something is wrong with the settings on my machine or the Asko model's performance is simply lousy.
Put simply, this model machine is as you say LOUSY- I have had mine 3 months, it is ruining my clothes, Asko are no help, their suggestions are all but laughable, t is almost like I am the problem. Millie j
