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
• Close zippers so that they don’t harm
fabrics.
• New, colored items may contain excess
dye and should therefore be washed
separately the first few times.
• Turn delicate items inside out. This
reduces the risk of burring and fading.
• 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
Note!
Colored cotton
Colored cotton items labeled 140 °F (60 °C)
should be washed on HOT, 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.
Delicate
Unbleached linen
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 linens
sheen and strength.
Wool and silk
These fabrics are sometimes labeled as
machine washable and sometimes as hand
wash. The machines Wool/hand program is
just 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 terry cloth
towels.
In this case select No spin.
To find out how to select this setting, see
the operating instructions. Most items can
withstand a short spin. Select short spin by
selecting a spin speed below medium.
Artificial fibers and synthetic
fibers
These materials require plenty of room to
prevent them from getting wrinkled.
Only fill half the drum when washing artificial
or synthetic fibers. Choose a short spin by
selecting a spin speed of medium.
12
Viscose and acetates are fragile when wet
Save time and energy
Use the White program to save time and
energy. This program has a shorter main
wash than a Heavily Soiled wash, but it
is often long enough for normally soiled
laundry.
Economy and efficiency
You can save a lot of energy by not
using higher temperature programs than
necessary.
• Select Quick wash if you just need to
freshen up shirts or sports 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.
• Try to wash only full loads whenever
possible.
• Avoid washing with prewash. Modern
machines and detergents clean without
prewash. Only garments soiled with
protein stains such as grape juice or
grass are likely to need a prewash.
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.
Note!
Due to environmental concerns, we
discourage the use of strong chemicals.
When using agents for bleaching or stain
removal, there is a risk of rust (corrosion)
and discoloration of the machine.

Advice And Tips Before Washing
Detergents
Liquid detergents
Note!
Due to environmental concerns, we
discourage the use of chlorine bleach in
your
Asko washing machine. The tumbling
wash action, temperature control options,
extended wash times and proper amount
of detergent are sufficient to remove most
stains.
Laundry detergents are available in low,
normal and high-sudsing formulas.
A detergents 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, highsudsing detergents are more difficult to
completely rinse out.
The use of anything other than a lowsudsing 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 over-sudsing 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
Everyday Wear/Normal wash program to
get rid of any remaining detergent.
The tumbling wash action, temperature
control options, extended wash times and
proper amount of detergent are sufficient to
remove most stains.
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 pre-wash, so add it into
the main wash compartment.
Should you prefer to use a liquid detergent,
we have provided a liquid detergent cup
specifically for use with liquid detergents.
Insert the liquid detergent cup in the main
wash compartment before you pour in the
liquid detergent.
Note!
The liquid detergent cup is supplied with the
machine.

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 (HighEfficiency) detergents. Listed below are
some low-sudsing powder detergents that
have been successfully tested in ASKO
washers:
• Fab
• All
• Tide HE
• Amway SA8
• Fresh Start
• Wisk HE
We recommend that you do not use
any powder detergent that doesn’t wash
completely out of the detergent drawer.
Amount of detergent to use
The amount of detergent needed varies
among the different brands, but for most
detergents, you need only two or three
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 pre-wash 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
section for more details.
14
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.
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 extremely
hard water (9+) you may need to wash at
lower temperatures to prevent hard water
deposits from forming in the tank and wash
system.
Different brands of detergent have different
amounts of phosphorous for softening
water. If you have hard water and use a
detergent with less than 8.7% phosphorous
content, you may need to use more
detergent or use a detergent with a higher
phosphorous content.

Care And Maintenance Instructions
Proper care of your washer can extend its
life. This section explains how to care for
your washer properly and safely.
Cleaning your washer
Exterior - Wipe up detergent, bleach, and
other spills with a soft, damp cloth or sponge
as they occur. Do not use any solvents, as
these can damage the machine.
Interior - Clean the interior
with 250 ml (1 cup) of
chlorine bleach mixed
with 500 ml (2 cups) of
detergent. Run the washer
through a complete cycle.
Repeat this process if
necessary.
If your water is very hard or contains traces
of lime deposit, the water inlet filter may
become clogged.
Install and store your washer where it will
not freeze. Because some water may stay
in the hoses, freezing can damage your
washer. If you store or move your washer
during freezing weather, winterize it.
1. Turn off water faucet.
2. Disconnect and drain water inlet hoses.
3. Run washer on a drain and spin setting
for 1 minute.
4. Unplug the power supply cord.
5. Open the drain pump cover and remove
the coin trap insert. Use a shallow bowl
or old towels to catch the water that
drains from the unit. Replace the coin
trap and close the drain pump cover.
20
Operate your washer only when you are at
home.
If you are on vacation or don’t use your
washer for an extended period of time, you
should:
• Unplug the power supply cord or turn off
power to the washer.
• Turn off the water supply to the washer.
This helps avoid accidental flooding (due
to a water pressure surge) while you are
away.

Care And Maintenance Instructions
Cleaning the drain filter
The drain filter is used to catch items such
as threads, coins, pins, buttons, and items
left in pants pockets.
The drain filter needs to be cleaned
regularly otherwise drain problems could
occur.
Caution!
Be careful when draining if the water is hot.
1. Open the drain pump cover (1) by using
a coin. Pull out the hose.

water. The lid of the fabric softener
compartment may be removed for easier
cleaning.
• Detergent can also accumulate inside
the detergent drawer housing and
should be cleaned periodically with a
brush.
• Once clean, replace the detergent
drawer and run a rinse cycle without
laundry in the machine.
2. Unplug the hose cap (2) and drain the
water into a shallow bowl or some old
towels. When the water flow stops, turn
the pump filter (3) counterclockwise to
remove it.

Removing Stains
Stained, heavily-soiled, or greasy items may
need to be pre washed or soaked for best
results.
Soaking helps remove protein-type stains
like blood, milk or grass.
Pre washing helps loosen soil before
washing.
Stain removal rules
Use warm water for soaking or pre-washing
stained laundry. Hot water can set stains.
Most stains are easier to remove when they
are fresh.
Before treating any stain, find out what
kind of stain it is, how old the stain is, what
kind of fabric it is, and whether the fabric is
colorfast. (Check the care label)
Washing and drying can set some stains.
Start with cold or warm water. Hot water can
set some stains.
When bleach is recommended, use a
bleach that is safe for the fabric.
Put the stained area face down on a paper
towel or white cloth. Apply the stain remover
to the back of the stain. This forces the stain
off of the fabric instead of through it.
Stain removal guide
Blood - Rinse immediately in COLD water.
If stain remains, soak in cold water with
an enzyme prewash.
Chewing gum - Use ice in plastic bag to
harden the gum. Scrape off what you
can and then sponge with commercially
available stain remover.
Cocoa, Chocolate - Sponge with COLD
water and soak in an enzyme prewash.
If stains persist, rub in a little detergent
and rinse in cold water.
Coffee - Blot up quickly and rinse out in
COLD water. Rub in a little detergent
and wash in the maximum temperature
allowed for the fabric type.
22
Cream/Milk/Ice cream - Rinse in COLD
water and wash normally. If the stain is
still apparent, sponge with commercially
available stain remover.
Deodorant - Rub the affected area with
white vinegar and then rinse out in
COLD water. Sponge with commercially
available stain remover. Treat the
stiffened areas with enzyme pre-wash.
Egg - Soak in a COLD enzyme pre-wash,
rinse and wash normally.
Fabric/Softener - Rub the affected area
with bar soap and wash normally.
Fruit stains - Treat as soon as possible by
sponging with COLD water. Rub a little
detergent on the stain and wash normally.
Grass - Sponge with white spirits. Rub in an
enzyme prewash and wash as normally.
Grease and oil - Lay the affected area face
down on an absorbent cloth and work
from the back. Sponge with commercially
available stain remover. Wash normally.
Iron or rust - Apply lemon juice and salt
and place in the sun. Wash normally.
Lipstick - Sponge with commercially
available stain remover and wash
normally.
Mildew - Wash in WARM water and
detergent. Moisten area with lemon juice,
dry in the sun and wash normally. If stain
persists and the fabric allows, use a
bleach.
Mud - Brush off any dry mud. Rinse in
cold water. If stain persists rub in a little
detergent and wash normally.
Paint-oil based - Scrape off any fresh paint
and sponge with a non flammable dry
cleaning fluid and wash normally.
Paint-water based - Treat while still wet,
rinse in WARM water and wash normally.
Scorch marks - Dampen a cloth with
hydrogen peroxide, lay it over the affected

Installation Instructions
Level floor
• Allowable slope under entire washer is
1°.
• To minimize noise and vibration, the
washer MUST be installed on a solidly
constructed floor.
• Carpeting and soft tile surfaces are not
recommended.
• Never install the washer on a platform or
surface with poor support.
Note!
[Closet, Stacking - Front View]
A firm, solid floor is even more critical to a
front-loading washer than to a top-loader.
If your floor is wood and/or frame
construction, you may need to reinforce it.
Front-loaders use substantially faster spin
speeds than top-loaders, causing greater
vibration. If the floor is not solid, your
washer will vibrate. You will hear and feel
the vibration throughout your house.
Power outlet
• Must be within 60 in. (1.5 m) of either
side of the washer. Do not overload the
outlet with more than one appliance.
• Time-delay fuse or circuit breaker is
recommended.
Note!
It is the personal responsibility and obligation
of the customer to have a proper outlet
installed by a qualified electrician.
