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

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

Getting repairs done under warranty very difficult

I purchased an Asko W4086C front loader in May 2021. It worked well until November 2022 when it started leaking intermittently. By January it was leaking badly. An approved technician confirmed the water intake pipe rubs on the metal housing until it rubbed a hole in the pipe. He apologised that the repair could not be completed that day. He would have to photograph the problem area and send a report to Asko and then wait for them to supply the necessary part. 5 weeks later and nothing!! I check with the repair agent every week and there is nothing they can do to remedy the fault. We are hand washing for a family of 5!! I wish I had not purchased extended warranty. Show details

I just got this - I clearly haven't done the research but is it a cold-water only machine? Or does it heat up the water itself? It seems to have a space for the hot water inlet but there's no actual connector for it.

Sorry I have no idea, I got them to do the install when the washer and dryer was delivered by Asko

The machine is connected to cold water but heats the water to the temperature you select. Most of the time I wash cold and line dry to save energy with good results.
