Advice and tips before washing
Here are some tips that may help you before
washing.
Sorting your laundry
Sort items according to:
• how soiled they are
• color
• material
Clothing
1. Close zippers and Velcro straps so they won’t
damage fabrics.
2. New colored items may contain excess dye
and should therefore be washed separately
the first few times.
3. Turn delicate items inside out. This reduces
the risk of burling and fading.
4. Empty pockets and wash them inside out if
possible.
Laundry labels
Look at the item’s laundry label. The table below
shows suitable wash programs for different
materials and wash loads. Using modern washing
machines and detergents, such as compact
detergents, you can usually wash at lower
temperatures. It is a good idea to use trial and
error to find out what produces the best results.

Advice and tips before washing
Colored cotton
Stain removal
Colored cotton items labeled 140 °F (60 °C)
should be washed at 140 °F (60 °C) the first time
in order to remove any excess dye. If you do not
do so, there is a risk that the color will run. Use
detergent without bleach in order to preserve the
color of the fabric.
The automatic stain program can be used for the
following types of stains: Chocolate, Blood, Red
wine, Egg, Grass, Dairy products, Coffee/Tea,
Butter/Grease, and Blueberry. The program is
suitable for cotton, cotton/synthetics, and
synthetics.
Unbleached linen
NOTE!
Unbleached linen fabrics should be washed at
140 °F (60 °C), using detergent containing no
bleach or optical whiteners. Heavily-soiled linen
can occasionally be washed at higher
temperatures, but not too often as the heat can
destroy the linen’s sheen and strength.
Wool
These fabrics are labeled either machine wash
or hand wash. The Wool program is at least as
gentle as washing by hand.
Wool is especially sensitive to processes such as
washing.
If you do not wish to spin dry, you can squeeze
out the water using terrycloth towels. In this case
select No spin.
To find out how to choose this setting, see the
"Operating instructions" chapter. However, most
garments can withstand a short spin. Choose a
short spin by selecting a spin speed of 800 rpm
or less.
Rayon fibers and synthetic fibers
For stain removal it is always important to treat
the stain as soon as possible. Leaving a stain
and allowing it to dry makes it more difficult to
remove. It is also important to carefully scrape
off any of the stain on the surface of the garment.
Do not load the machine with more than 6 lb (2.5
kg) of laundry.
Reducing allergic reactions
The washing machine has a Super Rinse option.
Use this for people with sensitive skin, such as
those with allergies and small children.
Save time and energy
Use the Color program to save time and energy.
This program has a shorter main wash than White,
but is often sufficient for lightly soiled laundry.
High Water Level
If you want more water for the main wash and
rinses, you can use the High Water Level option.
High Water Level is used automatically in the
Wool/Hand program.
Materials made of rayon fibers, such as viscose,
and some synthetic fibers are very delicate and
require much space to avoid wrinkling. Only half
fill the drum when washing and choose a spin
speed of 800 rpm or lower.
NOTE!
Viscose and acetates are fragile when wet.

Advice and tips before washing
Economy and efficiency
NOTE!
You can save a lot of energy by not using higher
temperature programs than necessary.
• Select Quick if you just need to freshen up
shirts or exercise clothes, for example. This
will save both water and energy.
• If you select a fast spin speed, this reduces
energy consumption when drying in a tumble
dryer or drying cabinet.
• Always wash with a full load when using the
Sani, Color, and White programs.
• Avoid pre-washing. Modern machines and
detergents clean effectively without
pre-washing. Pre-washing is only necessary
for heavily soiled laundry.
Due to environmental concerns, we discourage
the use of strong chemicals.
Detergents
Eco-labeled detergents are less harmful to the
environment.
Detergent overdosing does not give better
washing results; it merely causes a greater impact
on the environment.
Try to use less detergent, and increase only if you
are not satisfied with the results.
Dyeing fabrics
If you want to dye fabrics in the machine, select
the Color program with the Super Rinse option.
Select the temperature according to the dye
manufacturer’s recommendations.
Choose a low spin speed if the fabric to be dyed
is a blended material, such as
polyester/cotton.
NOTE!
Add the dye directly to the washing drum – not
to the detergent compartment. After dyeing, you
should run the machine empty using the same
program. Use the normal amount of detergent.
14
When using agents for bleaching or stain
removal, there is a risk of rust (corrosion) and
discoloration of the machine.
Liquid detergents
We don’t recommend liquid detergents because
they tend to produce more suds than powder
detergents when used in water temperatures of
150° F or higher. If you should try a liquid
detergent, start with a very small amount, such
as 1 to 2 tablespoons. Also, liquid detergent can
be used for all programs without prewash, so add
it into the main wash compartment.
Detergents
Laundry detergents are available in low-, normaland high-sudsing formulas. A detergent´s ability
to clean is not relative to the amount of suds it
produces. Excess suds in a front-loading washer
actually interfere with the cleaning because they
cushion the tumbling action. Also, high-sudsing
detergents are more difficult to completely rinse
out.
The use of anything other than a low-sudsing
detergent can cause severe oversudsing, which
could cause suds to backup through the detergent
compartment and run down the front of the washer
onto the floor. If oversudsing occurs, run the wash
through one or more rinse programs until all items
are thoroughly rinsed. Remove the laundry then
run the washer through a Normal wash program
to get rid of any remaining detergent.
We recommend that you don’t use bleach in your
ASKO washer. The tumbling wash action,
temperature control options, extended wash times
and proper amount of detergent are sufficient to
remove most stains.
Customer Care Center
1-800-898-1879
www.askousa.com
Advice and tips before washing
Recommended powder detergents
ASKO washers use 50% to 75% less detergent
than most other washers. This is because of their
low water consumption and the fact that all the
wash water is repeatedly circulated through the
laundry, ensuring that all the detergent is fully
utilized. We recommend that you use powder
detergents made specifically for front-loading
washers. These are sometimes called HE
(High-Efficiency) detergents. Please visit our
homepage www.askousa.com to see the powder
detergents we recommend for ASKO washers.
We recommend that you do not use any powder
detergent that doesn’t wash completely out of the
detergent drawer.
Detergent Amounts Based on Water
Hardness
The amount of detergent needed can vary due to
differences in water hardness. To determine the
water hardness in your area, contact your local
water utility or area water softening company. The
harder the water, the more detergent you may
need. Refer to the chart below for the
recommended detergent amounts based on water
hardness. Remember, you should adjust the
amount of detergent you use by small amounts
until you find the correct amount.
Note that 12 grains and higher is extremely hard
water and detergent alone may not be enough.
You may need to use a water softener to maximize
the performance of your washer. Also, in areas
with hard water (9+) you may need to wash at
lower temperatures to prevent hard water deposits
from forming in the tank and wash system.
Amount of detergent to use
The amount of detergent needed varies among
the different brands, but for most detergents, you
need only one or two tablespoons. Using too
much detergent can result in detergent residue
being left in your clothes, which can cause them
to appear gray or dingy. You should start with a
small amount of detergent and increase it only if
the cleaning results are unsatisfactory.
Additionally, you should never put detergent in
the prewash compartment unless you are using
a wash program that has a prewash cycle. This
could cause excess foaming, which could damage
the machine.
The amount of detergent needed can also depend
on the hardness of the water in your area. See
the “Detergent Amounts Based on Water
Hardness” section on the next page for more
details.
Recommended detergent amounts based on water hardness

The washing machine has a trap where small
items such as coins, buttons, and hairpins can
collect. To clean the trap and the drain pump, do
as follows:
1. Make sure the machine is empty of water and
switched off at the main power switch.
Cleaning the detergent
compartment
NOTE!
Do not wash the detergent compartment or the
insert in a dishwasher!
Open the detergent compartment and remove the
insert. Rinse the insert and scrub it clean with a
dish brush. Wipe up any detergent left inside the
detergent compartment. Replace the insert in the
detergent compartment.
2. Open the door.

suitable container, such as a shallow bowl.
Detergent
compartment
Cleaning the outside of the machine
Clean the outside of the machine and the program
panel with a mild cleaner. Do not use any
solvents, as these can damage the machine.
NOTE!
4. Turn the cover counter-clockwise to open the
pump. Remove the cover.
Do not hose down the machine with water!
Cleaning the inside of the machine
to avoid unpleasant smells
5. Remove any items and debris from the pump
housing and cover. Also check that the pump
impellers at the back rotate.
Modern detergents often allow laundry to be
washed at low temperatures. This means that
small deposits can build up in the machine. These,
in turn, may lead to unpleasant odors developing.
To avoid this, we recommend running a 203 °F
(95 °C) wash program once a month. When you
do this, use a small quantity of detergent. It is not
necessary to put any laundry in the machine.
6. Screw on the cover, replace the drainage hose
on the hatch pin, and close the hatch.

fabrics.
If you live in an area with hard water (high
limescale content), a grayish-white coating may
form on the wash drum. To remove this coating,
pour approximately 20 gram (1 oz) of citric acid
into the wash drum and run any 203 °F (95 °C)
program. Repeat if necessary.
Do as follows:
1. Insert a screwdriver or similar tool into the hole
on the paddle as illustrated and carefully push
to the left.
2. Use your other hand to grasp the paddle and
pull it toward you.
3. Lift the paddle.
4. Remove any objects.
5. Place the paddle in the mounting hole with the

Installation
Read these instructions carefully and completely
before you install the machine. The installation
should be carried out by a qualified person who
is familiar with all local codes and ordinances for
electrical and plumbing connections.
Cosmetic damage must be reported to your dealer
within five days from the date of purchase. After
unpacking the washer, thoroughly check the unit
for cosmetic damage.
Leveling the machine
It is important that the machine is level to prevent
excessive vibrations during spin cycles. Each foot
of the washer is adjustable, so you can level the
washer on any surface. Once it is level, securely
tighten the lock nuts on the feet to prevent
excessive vibration during spin cycles.
Water supply connection
Since ASKO washers have a built-in heating
element, you only need a cold water inlet. The
connection should be made by someone who is
sufficiently skilled. Use the hose supplied with the
washer. (The inlet hose is marked for correct
connection.) The water pressure must be in the
range 15–146 PSI. A valve should be fitted on the
water supply pipe. If a new supply pipe has been
installed for the washer, it should be flushed
thoroughly to remove any foreign particles that
might clog the filter in the fill valve.
Be sure to tighten the
lock nuts securely
when you level the
machine.
NOTE!
If the unit is installed on a second storey, follow
local building codes. We recommend installing
a drip pan.

bottom of the unit. (The lower height is preferable.)
Make sure the hose is not kinked.
24" to
36"
WARNING!
Connection to a permanently wired supply point
must be made only by a qualified electrician
Grounding instructions
This appliance must be grounded. In the event of
malfunction or breakdown, grounding will reduce
the risk of electric shock by providing a path of
least resistance for electric current. This appliance
is equipped with a cord having an
equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding
plug. The plug must be plugged into an
appropriate outlet that is properly installed and
grounded in accordance with all local codes and
ordinances.
Freestanding installation
NOTE!
If the hose is extended, the internal diameter of
the coupling must not be less than ½".
WARNING!
Do not extend the drain hose higher than 36"
(914 mm) from the bottom of the unit.
WARNING!
Electrical Connections
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding
conductor can result in a risk of electric shock.
Check with a qualified electrician or serviceman
if you are in doubt as to whether the appliance
is properly grounded.
The machine is delivered ready-fitted with a plug
and is intended for connection to an ASKO Dryer,
which is equipped with a matching receptacle.
The plug supplied with the washer can only be
used with an ASKO Dryer. If the washer is used
separately or with another dryer, it must be on a
separate 208-240 V single-phase circuit.
If the machine is to be used in a wet area, the
supply must be protected by a residual current
device.
As supplied: 208-240 V, 60 Hz, 2000 W heating
element,16 A fuse required.
34
The washer can be placed next to the dryer. It is
essential that the machine is leveled and the
locknuts are tightened to prevent excessive
vibration during spin cycles. Also be sure to leave
a minimum of ½" of space between the washer
and the dryer. The height adjustment for the
washer is 33½" to 34½" (850 mm to 876 mm). Do
not raise it higher than 34½" (876 mm).
Do not modify the plug provided with the
appliance. If it will not fit the outlet, have a proper
outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
Stacked installation
ASKO washers should never be stacked on a
counter or a dryer. You can, however, stack an
ASKO dryer on an ASKO washer. Refer to your
Dryer Use and Care Guide for instructions on how
to do this.

ASKO washers can be installed beneath a cabinet
or worktop with a height of 34" to 35" (863 to 889
mm) or in a closet. There must be a gap of about
½" (12 mm) all around the machine, including
between the rear edge of the machine's top panel
and the back wall. The opening width must be at
least 24½" (622 mm). Space must also be
available for the fill and drain hoses. See the
illustration below for measurements and positions.
If the washer is installed in a closet the door must
be left open while the washer is running.
If the drain outlet is higher than 24"(610 mm), the
connections will need to be recessed.
