Hi,

I'm going to assume against my better judgment you mean the clothes are not spun out but are soaking wet. Since Asko washers do not dry the clothes as some all in one units do, you likely have a problem with either overloading, too much detergent, wrong type of detergent, an obstruction in the pump i.e coins, buttons, sock, undies etc. (not allowing the spin cycle to occurr) or a faulty drive motor/brushes.

Unfortunately there's no easy answer without more info. consider these...

1) have you operated this machine before ?
2) Do you use "HE" detergent
3) have you put very different types of garments in together, i.e. towels and cottons, denims and polyester ?
4) does the water drain out ?
5) is the unit stable on its legs/on the floor ?

there are many factors that can create the symptom you're describing, as these are just a few possibilities.

let us know here if any of these are possible and we can go from there.

p.s.
a model number would be helpful as well.

Asko D5457 DISHWASHER. Dishes are clean but not dry.. Especially plastics on top eack despite long dry selected. Any ideas as to what may be occurring?


Unfortunately, plastic will not dry well if at all in this model. The only heat for drying is the residual heat left in the dishware after the hot rinse cycle. Plastics do not have enough thermal mass to hold on to the heat long enough to dry. Also, you MUST use a rinse agent in this washer. Those detergent packets with rinse aid in it is not enough. Make sure to keep the rinse aid dispenser full.

My Asko D1976 dishwasher is not cleaning dishes properly. There is a lot of clumped detergent left in the dispenser after wash cycles are complete, and many of the dishes have dried-on food left on them. ...


First of all, don't pre-rinse the dishes. Check the water temperature, it should be between 120 and 140 degrees. Be sure you are not partially blocking the dispenser door so that it isn't opening.

Asko Washer/Dryer (WCAM 1812); Dryer not working.


Update: The dry cycle is now working! Apparently the automatic overload/shut off on the heating element got tripped. We had a technician out this morning. He unplugged the machine, removed the top of the unit, and simply pushed a little red/orange button that was on top of the heating element. When we plugged it back in the heating element worked again. The technician was able to troubleshoot this by checking the amps while running the dry cycle. But the proof was really when we did a load and the machine heated up (just like it used to) during the dry cycle. This was actually a relatively simply fix - though could be dangerous as you have to open up the electrical area. The reset button is rather inconspicuous and located on top of the heating element, which is long (runs front to back in the center part of the top of the machine - which you can get to by removing the lid/top outer housing) and silver - wrapped in insulation. It's pretty obvious. The button is in a little metal fixture on top of the heating element. The technician told us that the rest can get tripped when the unit overheats. (We think this happened when the laundry tub overfilled and the hose was totally submerged - the machine was working overtime to pump out the water.) The technician also warned that this can happen if the machine gets turned off suddenly mid-cycle - especially during the drying cycle. He said that the heating element gets so hot, it needs to have a gentle cool down period, which is marked on the dryer dial for the last 20 minutes of the cycle. I hope this helps others!

I need to know if a new Asko Dryer will stack with my old washer


The exterior size hasn't changed and the plug to run the washer is the same so I don't see a problem. A good retailer can check this for you , but I haven't seen any difference in the stacking kits.

Clothes smell.


Mold, mildew and other fun things use washers as a breeding ground. Clean your machine with a generous amount of white vinegar run through a cycle. Or there is a product called Affresh you can buy at Lowes or Home Depot.
