Help!! Bosch or Asko?
I have used front loaders (both Bosch and Asko at different times) for the last 15 years in Australia and never a problem with mold in the gasket or anywhere for that matter... moved to Boston and was convinced by the salesperson that the Electrolux front loader and dryer was the way to go for various reasons (I love european machines so I feel crazy that I made this decision) and purchased these 8 mths ago... now have awful mold problems in the gasket and the appliance place has said they will replace with the machines of my choosing - I want to replace with european made 24 inch (it has never been an issue for me to use 24 inch machines since I like to do small loads anyway and I don't care about how long it takes since I think they wash better) and so my choice is Bosch Axxis or Asko (I would buy a Miele in a heartbeat but this place does not sell them)... The Bosch and Asko I used in the past were much older models i.e. 10 years back so I am not familiar with what's on the market now - any recommendations? Priorities for me is that it is european made (so Asko or Bosch brand) no history of mold issues, washes well but very gentle on clothes, good with cold water, gentle low heat drying (I hate the dryers that over heat and shrink clothing)
