Thinking Inside the Box

Designed with the strength to perform in a hotel, hospital or restaurant, but styled for the home, ASKO washers are tested up to 12,500 hours. Quite simply, domestic products are built to the same standards as professional products.

Maximum effect minimal wear.

The Active Drum™ system provides optimum care and maximum gentleness for laundry. The hourglass-shaped and removable paddles guide the load to the gentler central area of the drum and also effectively remove large objects such as dirt and gravel to the larger holes at the edge of the drum.

Easier loading without rubber bellows

Thanks to the Smart Seal™ construction, the door takes up less space in the washing drum, which increases usable capacity. There isn’t a traditional rubber bellows seal in the opening, which makes it easier to load and unload the machine. Not to mention there won’t be any odor associated with the rubber bellows. The SmartSeal™ odorless alternative also gives the washer a longer life time.

When the going gets tough, the steel keeps going

A washer must be able to withstand both high temperatures and high spin speeds. Plastic is not a sanitary solution and may create odors. Stainless steel in both inner and outer drums is the best.

ASKO is stronger and quieter

Asko reinforces and stabilizes washing machines by using a robust cast iron rear gable instead of concrete often used by other manufacturers. This makes for stronger, quieter operation and a longer life.

ASKO power!

ASKO washers are fitted with induction motors without carbon brushes.This robust motor ensures that the machine can cope with the highest spin speed, reduces noise levels and also increases the life of the machine.

Speed is good for laundry

When it comes to drying, it is. Actually the faster the better, because high spin speed means less residual moisture in the washing load. Variable and accurate spin speeds up to 1400 rpm allow hang drying of most fabrics. Thus saving energy by only tumble drying the bulkier loads: such as towels, bedding and heavier fabrics.

Scandinavian design Scandinavian design The combination of everyday functionalism, environmental concern and clean, pleasant lines is the principal hallmark of Scandinavian design – and that of ASKO. The fundamental idea is that carefully designed products should improve people’s quality of life. To distinguish ourselves in a market of cluttered, complex and voluptuous designs, we aim for a soft, humanistic minimalism based on the principle of quiet being the new loud. The key elements of Scandinavian design – understated elegance, high-quality craftsmanship and natural materials – are reflected in ASKO’s design language.
