Question about Asko W6021 Front Load Washer
Hi. My Asko frontloader is not rinsing the detergent from the dispenser into the wash. At the end of the wash, I am left with a very hard lump of detergent to remove from the dispenser....and naturally, the clothes are not as clean as they could be! I use an environment friendly detergent - but have been using it for at least 4 years, and the problem has only surfaced in the last couple of months. Can any body suggest any solutions? Ta H
Try a new box of detergent. Sometimes a batch of detergent just isn't right.

This suggestion is not too good. If your dispenser opens at the initial stages of the cycle, just a little - pour some water into the dispenser to wash down the detergent. (For my machine i can pull out the dispenser anytime during the wash, except when water comes into the dispenser, but even then i think the water enters the tub.) For this you dont have to hang around the machine for long for it is in the initial stages of the cycle. Later you hv to check the flow of water into the dispenser. Hv no idea how to do it; but i gave you a quick solution.

Hello royal37 - Hi - The dispenser drawer could either be cracked or have a broken latch due to interference between the drawer front and top panel. Contact a professional to move forward accurately and might possibly need to order a service kit (PN: 137146000/part number may be different depending on your model number).

Because ASKO washers use less water than conventional top-loading washers, you need less detergent and fabric softener. We recommend that you use a low-sudsing powder detergent only, preferably a high-efficiency (HE) detergent designed specifically for front-loading washers.
**(Liquid detergents tend to suds more, which make them more difficult to rinse out.)**
Detergent - The amount of detergent needed varies, depending on the detergent you use. For high-efficiency detergent specifically for front-loading washers, you should use the amounts recommended by the manufacturer.
Also, the amount of detergent needed can vary due to differences in water hardness. (Refer to the Use and Care Guide for more details.) If you choose to use a liquid detergent, start out with a very small amount, such as one or two tablespoons.
