Felt this warranted its own thread so here goes...
I used sed my friend's Asko washer and condenser dryer while on a visit for about 5 loads. I was actually impressed. The newer Askos are beautiful. Is Asko still facing a lot of repair issues?
Wash quality was on par with high. Not Mieles (no noneycomb all SS drum, reverse drying, super slow wool rotation speed, cycle options) but close. They are still a bit expensive for having such a poor repair history. I would feel more consumer confidence with Miele for my next purchase but if budget was strict option (they are about a $1000 less than Miele 5 kilo set - not sure if Asko can be sold competively or if they are UMRP) I would certainly consider these if Asko has improved their repair record.
Anybody have any info?
