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.

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.

Cothes are being put on a 40 wash but coming out stone cold is there a way to check if water is heating as no fault is flashing up on display


I would expect the clothes to be cold after the cycle is finished, as it will have completed at least 3 cold water rinses, so I do not think you have a problem.
If you want to check if the heater is working o/k, then select a hot wash programme, say 90 degrees, and feel the door glass after 30 mins or so, it should feel warm , and if the heater is not working, then normally the washer will not complete the programme.

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.

Whirlpool Dishwasher GU3600XTSB 3 - 4 hours to complete washing


Wash time is determined by the cycle you select, the incoming water temperature and the installation location. The new machines will heat the water to a predetermined temperature and it takes roughly 1 minute for each degree of rise, If the incoming water is at 120 deg and the wash cycle wants 165 than it will take 45 minutes just for that one cycle to complete, Factor in an outside wall with poor insulation or lower water temperature and it could take even longer.
