Summary: The machine itself is fine, although not great for the money it costs. The real problem is customer service. I needed to replace a fuse holder and repair clinic didn't have them in stock so my options were to pay a service person to change my fuse for $90 or wait without a machine for 3 weeks until...
Summary: This washer replaces an earlier model Asko that got nearly 20 years of good use. This model is quieter, the controls are easier to use. It only requires a cold water connection. Hoping to get 20 years from this washer as well.
Summary: Let me start with the power source. 220v rules. No only is efficient, it is also a connection saver. Just by daisy chain the washer with the dryer it will save you an extra connection on the wall.
Summary: This replaced current model with controller acting up. I see this one has new digital controller so expect no problems. Wife did note that now temperature is only selectable by choosing a cycle though.
Summary: I live in the city and bought the W6222 after doing much research. After 6 months of extensive use, I cannot complain Asko has got it right with the white cycle. I have never seen whites come out whiter without the use of bleach.
Summary: there is some venting of extra humidity into the room the dryer is in while it is running. This is a boon in the dry winter of New England, and in the summer, I can open windows. If this were in a room without windows, I'd be cautious about using it in warm weather.
Summary: The Asko W6222 washer is equipped with an internal water heater, connects only to a cold water intake, and heats the water quickly to the temperature of your choice without placing any burden on your regular large water heater, thus saving energy.
