ASKOs have no hot water hook-up because they heat their own water. They only need cold water. It's not a problem, it's supposed to be that way!

I think it's because they're designed for the market in Europe, where central hot water isn't necessarily the norm.

All single fill washers have a heater for the wash if you notice the markings on the wash cycle dial there will be markings for different degrees of wash.

Asko W6021 won't fill. It clicks and starts, but no water fills drum. I've cleaned drain trap but don't know how to clean inlet filter as suggested in manual.


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
The water inlet filters are inside where the hot and cold water supply hoses screw into the machine. Turn the water off, unscrew the hoses and they should be visible. However it might not be those causing the machine not to fill. If they needed cleaning the water would fill- but taking longer each wash.
If you confirm the filters are clear, it is more likely to be symptomatic of a malfunctioning water control valve- the hot water one, if the washer is hot and cold fill, or the cold one if it is just cold fill!
Sorry but it needs replacing and a service call ;-0(
Good luck,

I have an ASKO W6021 Quattro 1200 RPM. It does not complete the wash cycle. If I turn the know to rinse, it does rinse and completes. I tried it without any clothes in it and it does the same thing. I also...


Check that the cold water is turned on. The washing machine uses cold water to rinse, and if the cold water is not on, unit will end without completing cycle.

I have been delivered a Aquiras Extra WMA 40 but I only have a cold pipe but I notice the machine has a hot and cold pipes do I connect to just the cold pipe and will the machine heat the water inside


No, the machine does not have a heater unless it has a sanitizing cycle which heats already hot water even hotter.

For the machine to work as advertised, you'll need hot and cold water connections. However, if you just hookup the cold water and run the machine on its cold-water setting it will wash -- the laundry may not be as clean as you would like in some cases, but the machine will operate properly.

Washing machine fills with water when not in use.


Either your pressure in the main line bringing water to your machine is insufficient; or your intake water valve is defective; which you can replace easily.

Bosh error code E02


Hi. I had the same problem with my Bosch washing machine and called Bosch...was told the same thing...$99.00 for service call. I managed to fix my problem by doing the following:
  • Removed hot & cold water supply hoses.
  • Took filter screens out of both hoses.
  • Removed filter from cold inlet on back of washing machine. I noticed some oily buildup on both of the cold screens so opted to not put any of them back in.
  • Then I put hot & cold water supplies back on the wall hookup, but crossed the lines where they came into the back of the machine intentionally so that the hot water line fed into the cold side of the washing machine and vice versa.
  • Then I ran a couple loads on "cold" which was actually hot water coming in to the machine.
The reason I did this was that I figured there must be some more waxy buildup inside the machine in the cold lines and hoped the hot water would melt it like when you rinse a greasy pan under hot water. IT WORKED!!! I hope this helps you.

Washing Machine-hot water source


Most washers require both hot and cold supply. If it has two hose fittings on the back, then you need both hot and cold. I've only seen Asko washers that need just the cold. Even if your washer has a water heat option, it will only heat during a portion of the cycle if the option is selected, it is not a substitute for the hot water supply.
