Air Dry Program
A perfect program if you just want to freshen up your clothes or get rid of hair left behind by your cuddly pet. The airing program tumbles the garment in cool air in the amount of time set by you.
After the standard drying cycle, prevents the laundry from wrinkling if you cannot take it out immediately. A flexible anti-crease program that lets you choose for yourself how long you want it to be.
Aqua Block System
A water security system that consists of 6 or 7 components to ensure a leak-safe washing machine.
Auto Wash / Auto Dry
Some of our washers and all of our dryers have auto programs. Just fill the washer or dryer, select Auto Wash or Dry and Start. The Auto Wash programs are used for both white and colored fabric programs. They adapt the amount of water, number of rinses and washing time to the weight of the laundry. A smaller load means less water and energy consumption. When you choose Auto Dry you can decide how dry you want the load to be by simply choosing one of the four auto programs. After that, sensors determine the length of drying time required. These auto programs are not only convenient and easy to use, they are also energy saving since the running time is adjusted according to the amount of laundry.
Checks that the laundry is evenly distributed in the drum. Even distribution not only lowers noise while spinning, it also reduces the mechanical burden on the machine which in turn extends its life span. Balance control gauges and calculates the balance of the laundry, to decide whether the machine should spin or redistribute the load. If it is not properly balanced, the machine attempts to redistribute the laundry up to 10 times on the selected spin speed. If it still won’t spin, it will try up to five times more on a lower spin speed. In the event of extreme imbalance the machine will not spin.
To ensure the belt runs precisely and the strain on near-lying components is minimized, ASKO has a single motor system with a ball-bearing belt idler in all its dryers. This ensures low wear in the already robust motor.
Prevents creasing of your laundry and unnecessary strain on the motor and belt. Butterfly Drying is ASKO’s very own innovation, combining
1) a large drum capacity,
2) non-stop tumbling and
3) unique drum paddles.
This a convenient program, perfect for everyday use for laundry that is easily soiled. You set the temperature based on the laundry advice on your garment. You also choose the spin speed you require.
Use this function when you need to empty your machine of all water.
Double Lint Filter
Lint hinders the air circulation inside the tumble dryer. Air circulation is absolutely crucial to efficiency, and therefore to energy consumption and durability. This is why ASKO dryers are fitted with a particularly efficient double lint filter, which prevents lint from
gathering in the machine and thereby increases its life span.
Family Size Capacity
ASKO UltraCare™ Family Size capacity equals almost twice the capacity of the average family wash load size with superior energy efficiency and cleaning performance.
This is a perfect program for heavily soiled laundry – i.e., laundry that needs an extra wash before the ordinary program to dissolve the soil or stains. You set the temperature based on the garment’s laundry label and then the machine does a pre-wash before the main program. The machine smartly adapts the running time and water consumption based on the amount of laundry – thereby saving both water and energy.
High water level
Improves the rinse results and treats the whole wash more gently. The machine takes in approximately 1/2 gallon extra water for the main wash and every rinse.
By choosing the new Jeans Program on your ASKO dryer, the machine dries your favorite pair of jeans in the best possible way. It takes a little bit longer than a normal dry but gives a great result even in pockets and seams, where you would normally find residual moisture.
To ensure safety of children, the door of an ASKO dryer can be opened from the inside and the dryer has to be re-started if the door has been opened during drying cycle.
Use this program for normally to heavily soiled laundry, whether white or colored. You set the temperature based on the laundry advice on the garment. The machine adjusts the water and running time based on the load.
Features four-shock suspension, automatic load balancing system, cast iron counterweights and heavy-duty ball bearings which control load balancing and provide virtually vibration-free spin cycles for quiet operation. Also prevents ’walking’ and allows for stacking of units.
A 15 minute program that contains one rinse and a long spin cycle at maximum spin speed. Can be used when you want to rinse new clothes before first use, or to rinse clothes after a hand wash.
A unique system developed by ASKO. Interaction between temperature sensors makes the drying result more even and more reliable than that of a conventional type sensor. Air humidity provides a more realistic measure of the moisture left in the clothes and thereby eliminates the risk of overdrying, shrinking and creasing.
ASKO is the only manufacturer building washing machines without rubber bellows door seals. The Quattro™ construction allows the door to be sealed directly onto the drum assembly without protruding into the washing space.
To be used when you need to make an extra spin of your laundry to get rid of any residual moisture.
How about an intelligent and simple way of getting rid of an annoying problem, i.e. stains on your favorite clothes. Just choose the fabric and type of stain in the display menu and place your dirty laundry in the washer. An optimal program will then automatically be set to achieve the best possible wash result to remove the stain. The machine is set for 9 different types of stains (red wine, blood, grass, blueberries, butter, chocolate, coffee/tea, egg, dairy products) on three types of materials (cotton, cotton/synthetics, synthetics).
As a preventive measure for people with sensitive skin, ASKO's washing machines feature an extra rinse function called super rinse. This is especially important in areas with soft water and means that the machine rinses up to 7 times rather than the usual 3 or 5 (default factory setting).
A fast, convenient program that for instance can be used for laundry that just needs to be freshened up. You set the temperature based on the laundry advice on your garment and the running time is shorter the higher the temperature you choose.
An option that increases the program time. Ideal for heavily soiled laundry.
When you want to dry a blouse or shirt made of synthetics, you need a cooler drying temperature. With our new Synthetic Program the dryer sets the perfect parameters and temperature for optimized drying of the garments. The program also makes the drying time shorter since synthetic clothes require less drying time.
This program is specially adapted for synthetic materials, for instance your favorite blouse or shirt. You set the temperature based on the laundry advice on your clothes. The maximum spin speed is 800 rpm to take the best possible care of your synthetic fabrics.
Ensures that the water in the washing machine maintains the right temperature. It should not deviate by more than +/- 3°F. This reduces electricity consumption and means that delicate items are not damaged by excessively dramatic temperature fluctuations.
Time Delayed Start
A perfect function if you want to make the most of cheaper night time rates, or want your laundry to be clean just as you get home from work.
With our Time Program you decide how long you want to spend waiting for the washer to finish. In other words, you can reduce the cycle time when you're in a rush or only washing a few items. The machine optimizes the wash result on the time chosen from 30 minutes up to 3 hours - it is flexible, smart and time saving.
This is a handy program for everyday use, adjusted for lightly to medium soiled laundry. You set the temperature based on the laundry advice on your clothes. You also set the spin speed you require. The machine adjusts the water and running time based on the load.
Comes with all the new ASKO models. Wool demands gentle treatment and therefore, the machine increases the water level to reduce the height of fall and the mechanical action. This program is even gentler than you could be if you handwashed. This has been proven in several tests. A Wool Wash is done in 86°F, the same temperature as in the hand wash program.
ASKO UltraCare™ XXL capacity provides an impressive 3.8 cu. ft. tub volume (I.E.C) that accommodates maximum load sizes along with excellent cleaning performance and Energy Star® efficiency approval.
Note: With all ASKO wash programs it is important to set the temperature based on the laundry label on your clothes. A key rule is that garments that are worn near the body should be washed in 140°F, but lightly soiled laundry often gets clean in 104°F.
