    Default Asko washing machine.......worth the money?

    Hey everyone,

    So I am looking at getting a new washing machine (bout time too as mine is 9 years old!) and I quite like the Asko 10kg front loader. I can't find many reviews online so I thought I would ask if anyone has one and if they love/hate it. They are $2000+ so I really want to be sure before I commit!

    Any other recommendations would be also appreciated

    I have a Miele and love it. Similar price etc. A friend of mine has an Asko and loves it, smaller than the model you are looking at but they've had it for 10 years still going strong.

    IMO these top of the range washing machines are money well spent. They're built to last, use less water & electricity and are better on your clothes.

    Not familiar with the model you are looking at, but like all front loaders, ensure it has short cycle option/s, for when you're doing quick loads etc.

    I looked at the Miele but they don't go higher then an 8kg. I want the biggest I can get bascially so its easy to wash bedding etc.

    This model has a quick wash cycle but one thing it doesn't have is the steam or refresh option. Seems to have every other feature though. They only down side is its ugly! lol

    Yes it's worth it! Our middle of the range Electrolux literally blew itself up last year (thankfully someone was home!) and we bought an Asko 10kg. It's amazing. The clothes feel cleaner, take less time to dry and it is so much quieter! No shaking the house down on spin cycle either. Money very well spent on something that gets used so frequently. You won't be disappointed.

    Awesome this is good to know! I figure anything is better then what I have but I still want to make the right choice!

    Which model did you purchase? The eco? or the other one?

    Not the Eco one. I also think it's pretty good looking. Maybe I have bad taste though

    I would. My friend has one and can't fault if.

    I paid nearly same for a stupid Samsung and it's been nothing but a lemon!
