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.
