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.
