Creases everything as does Dryer T408HD

published

We purchased these appliances together after a recommendation from a friend.
The washer tries to wind large items such as sheets into a long ribbon and then wraps another sheet around that creating a tangle which takes a lot of unwinding. The dryer does the same thing despite Asko replacing the paddles with a larger ones. After drying each item looks like it needs ironing as they are all creased. We get a much better result hanging them on the outside line providing the weather is suitable.
Applying different settings and cycles makes very little difference. After spending nearly $4500 for the 2 appliances we are most unimpressed with their performance.

Purchased in April 2018 at The Good Guys.

Wonderful machine

published

Throw in and walk away. Perfectly clean every time. Such a fast spin too. And not noisy. I can even put hand washing in. Bedding is super clean and quite dry after the spin. So many cycles to choose from.

Questions & Answers

Alex K.asked

Hi ASKO,
My questions are,
1, The bottom of the seal on the door holds water even after wiping after each wash. The only way to dry would be to bend the rubber back. Is this going to reduce the life of the rubber seal having water lodged there and how long do you expect the seal to last?
2, why does the machine empty the water when you pause to put more clothes in? It doesn't make sense, it empties out the powder as well so to put in that extra sock it unnecessarily empties a few liters of water.

Looking forward to hearing from you,
Alex

1. Our seal does the same thing. We lift the rubber where it touches the clear plastic and run a cloth with shower power or similar around to clean away the water and any scum residing there, also the outer edge of the seal
and the door. Cleaning should nor hurt the seal as far as I am aware, I think the life of the seal should be around 5-7 years.

2. This annoys me too but I guess its to make sure the water level is low enough so that you don't flood the laundry when you open the door. I expect the engineers would tell you its a safety feature.

Regardless, these machines do not do a better job than I would expect from any decent brand.
