Asko built to last longer

See my review on the Asko company site. This machine broke down after 4 years - extended warranty (fortunately.) But… what a farrago to get service! An L36 fault shut down the machine and could not be repaired. Every step of the process needed to be urged. Be aware folks that Asko can do things more quickly - don’t be afraid to escalate your complaint and don’t give up. I eventually got my money back. But it took 2 months from failure ti refund. When I spoke to their service manager - she said that as they had 2.6 stars on product review and other competitors had 2.1-2.4 - they weren’t doing so bad… Asko built to last longer! Show details

So far so good

The earlier negative reviews for this ASKO W/M scared me. My first ASKO (made in Sweden) was purchased in November, 2003 and lasted without the semblance of a problem for just on 21 years! I have replaced it with this new ASKO (purchased Joyce Mayne April,2024) and so far it has performed perfectly. I mostly use the QUICK 30 minute cycle as that does just about any washing this family of two requires. Here's hoping the performance continues from this 'not made in Sweden' product. Incidentally, I found customer service for when my old machine broke down, responsive and most helpful. Show details

Never buy an Asko

Asko w4086 washing machine doesn’t allow to alter start time and always has a delayed start time and cycle times are excessive, 3 hours is crazy for any load.
I strongly do not recommend Asko and will never purchase this brand again.
Also, the customer service is unbelievably poor. Show details

Try living with a broken washing machine for a month

My facts. Machine broke within warranty. Call made to fix and still 4 weeks later unresolved. No machine and having a family of 4 and no washing machine for a month and no ability to speak to management or escalate issue with Asko. Based on performance and service do not recommend Show details

Complete rust bucket rubbish

Purchased Jan 21. Not used till August 2021 (renovations completed). One and half years later and it is completed rusted though. Visible signs of rust all over machine. Asko customer care/don’t care should be their real name. Rude and unhelpful. They claim “user error” caused the machine to rust. Have launched complaint with ACCC.

So dissatisfied and disappointed

Machine leaked from the door in the first couple of uses. Four warranty visits - adjustment of door hinge and it still leaked. Then the addition of a rubber seal in the door and the service agent angled the Machine backwards apparently the weight of the clothes causes the door not to have a good seal.
The vibration is felt throughout the house - all this and the machine was brand new.
Should have stuck with AEG - 10 years of faultless performance. Show details

Nice machine

It washes very well and has lots of different cycles. It takes a little bit of time to turn on which can be annoying, and the cycle are long but can be pre programmed. No door seal which is awesome. All
In all a great product Show details ·  1

Don't buy asko

Purchased from the Good Guys in May 2020 for $2400. Had been generally happy with the machine until recently. Some of the control panel buttons stopped working however was easy to work around. Has started to rust at the detergent drawer despite regular cleaning. Last week heard an excessive amount of noise and upon investigation the machine was shaking and sparks coming from the rear of the machine. The sparks were caused by the spinning drum eroding a hole through the rear metal cover.
Called Asko who weren't interested. Call can be summed up with "oh dear, how sad. Better buy a new machine." Show details

Questions & Answers

Leanne
Leanne · W4086

We purchased a 10kg ASKO washing machine in 2021 from Good Guys who recommended the washer. Have had no problems with it until last week when I opened the door and the glass fell out and shattered on the floor. I was doing a load of t-shirts for the soccer team at the time. We have extended warranty but Asko have said they will not cover this after speaking with their colleagues. I have called Good Guys and they said that a rep would contact me, which they did by telling me to call Asko. My husband called them again today to query their reply and was told that things like zippers or buttons can cause the glass to break. How are we supposed to wash those items with zippers and buttons if they can cause the glass to shatter. What a joke ! I am now waiting for the department of fair trading to investigate for me after contacting them.

My machine is leaking on the left side. I thought it might be the door hinge is there any way of checking this?
