It sounds like the program/timer is on its way out ( it should click down the minuets then stop ) try another setting that you know will only take 30 mins or so and see if it takes longer. if it dose then program/timer is the problem ( the board behind the settings dile )

What does Chrono 30 and mAgic 40 stand for


These are names used by Whirlpool for wash programs. Magic 40 is a 1 hour program which washes at 40 degrees, 3-4 Kg of fabrics, for heavy duty cleaning.

Chrono 30 is a short 30 minute program for lightly soiled or dusty clothes.

These seem to occur in Whirlpool machines sold in France.

The wash cycles are taking very long


Sounds like you have a heater problem. Program 5 should take around an hour and 6 should be around 30 min, both with the heater on according to asko's manual. So I would get the heater element checked.

A 40 degree cotton wash takes around 3 hours to complete cycle, manual states 90 minutes, any ideas ?


It is possible the heater element is not working, you need a meter to test it with, and make sure you have selected the correct programm for what you are washing as some programmes can take up to 3 hours to complete.
Hope this helps.

Program over running


Could be that the heater element is not working, therby prolonging the wash programme, if it works o/k on a 30 or 40 degree wash, then it is more than likely to be the j heater.
There could be other factors that could cause your prob.
Please leave feedback.
Thanks.

Washing cycle on a 40degree op. takes more than


Don't forget that the reason you bought a front loading washer is for the efficiency of the washing. In other words, front loaders use less water and get clothes cleaner without all the harsh beating that the older agitator units do.

If you're using any of the pre-programmed wash cycles, you might want to tgry another cycle to see how it does for getting your clothes clean with a shorter cycle.

If you check your owners manual, it should provide the cycle times for the various wash and water temp settings. The colder the water you use, the longer the wash cycle typically is, since it takes more agitation and time to get clothes clean, especially with front loading machines. Hope this helps.

Odor


IMPORTANT: Read thoroughly. DO NOT add detergent or other laundry products to this cycle.
1. Remove all items from the washer.
2. Open the dispenser drawer and 2/3 cup (160 mL) of liquid chlorine bleach to the bleach compartment. DO NOT use more than 2/3 cup (160mL) of bleach per cycle as this will lead to product damage.
3. Close the washer door and dispenser drawer.
4. Select the Clean Washer cycle or a full wash cotton 104 F wash (40 C). DO NOT use any higher temperature as this will cause unnecessary fumes
5. Press Start and allow cycle to complete.
6. If the bad odour persists, repeat the procedure 1 or 2 more times. This may be necessary if this is the first time you have run this cycle.
7. After the cycle is complete, leave the door open slightly to allow ventilation and drying of the washer interior.
8. Repeat the cleaning procedure monthly.
To maintain the washer freshness:
1. Use only HE High Efficiency detergent.
2. Leave the door open after each cycle to for better ventilation and drying of the washer interior.
3. Use warm / hot water in your machine unless the fabric you are washing requires cold.
4. Use the correct amount of fabric softener.
5. If your laundry room is damp, use a dehumidifier.
6. Clean the door seal of visible residue.

How long does it take to fill the tub? if the water, on warm stteting, isn't blasting out fast or if, when set to cold, it's trickling out, your cold water valve is shot. I can help with this problem 'cause I had the same experiences you listed.
