Comparing Asko Washer and Dryer Series: The Washers

The Washers

All of Asko?s three washers ? the Classic, Logic, and Style -are made from quality steel parts, including their Steel Seal? solutionthat eliminates rubber around the door; removing a vector for grime to gatherand clothes to snag on during loading and unloading. Their machines are alsomade extra sturdy due to their four shock-absorbing spring-legged QuattroConstruction? that also help the washer run with less noise and vibrations.

Features like Activedrum? Technology and SuperRinse? in their front load washers keep your clothes towards the center ofthe wash-basket, helps dirt find its way towards and out of the largerevacuation holes, and rinses with more water to eliminate all dirt and useddetergent.


The Dryers

Comparing Asko Washer and Dryer Series: The Dryers

For each of their three washers, Asko produces a corresponding dryer. Each dryer has a stainless steel Soft Drum? developed to enhance airflow around the laundry for an increased drying effect. Circular indentations with beveled edges also have a cushioning effect on clothing, reducing wear and tear as they tumble around the machine. And as they tumble, paddles inside the drum gently push the clothing in a figure-8 to further increase airflow by spreading the items out. This Butterfly Drying? also helps to minimize bundling and creasing. It does this by using two paddles to move items in a figure-eight which spreads them out. They come in vented or unvented iterations depending on the availability of ducting. Some can be stacked above their corresponding washer, halving the footprint of your laundry machines.

All three dryers are powered by a brushless motor that keepsthe machines more quiet as they operate, and also has one less part that couldpossibly malfunction. They?re also equipped with a Sensi Dry? systemthat uses a series of temperature sensors for a more even dry that alsoautomatically stops when it detects doneness, and a Multi Filter System?that uses a series of 5 filters to catch lint and other debris before it canreach the inner parts of the dryer.


Classic Series

Comparing Asko Washer and Dryer Series: Classic Series

The Classic Series is Asko?s entry-level washer and dryer series. With a 24-inch width and 2.1 cu. ft. capacity, the Classic washer features 15 wash cycles. The Classic Vented dryer has 9 dry cycles and a 4.1 cu. ft. capacity.

In addition to a Classic Vented dryer, the Classic is also the only model compatible with a Condenser or Heat Pump Dryer. These also have a 4.1 cu. ft. capacity, but each also uses a 2 US gallon water container. As expected, the Condenser dryer is the most affordable, but least energy-efficient dryer offered. The Heat Pump dryer is more expensive and more energy-efficient, but also harder to repair in the case of a malfunction.

Conclusion & FAQ

The upgrade that should have the most impact from series to series is likely the increase in washer and dryer capacities between the Classic and the Logic machines.

However, if you can make do with the reduced capacity, and don't care much about additional wash and dry cycles, the Classic series is a solid and affordable choice.
