Laundry detergents are corrosive, so always keep
them out of reach of children.
Models W600 and W620 have a child-safety catch that can be engaged to prevent children from tampering with the temperature knob. The catch is located below the temperature knob behind the edge of the control panel. To engage it, insert a flathead screwdriver in the slot on the catch. Press upwards as you turn the catch clockwise. When you release the catch is should protrude slightly below the control panel. Once the catch is engaged, you must hold it up as you turn the temperature knob to the desired setting.
Should a child swallow detergent, give plenty to drink

ASKO washers do not need high, medium, or low water level settings to compensate for different sized loads. ASKO washers have a Sensor Level Control (SLC) system designed to ensure the correct amount of water is pumped into the machine for any size load. It even compensates for fabric saturation, letting in more water if needed. This eliminates worry about selecting the right water level setting for each laundry load.
Below is an illustration of the parts and features of your ASKO washer.

Because wash water temperature is a major factor in getting laundry clean, ASKO washers have built-in heating elements and a sensor that keeps the temperature to within +/-1 F of the selected program temperature. ASKO washers are programmed not to advance in a cycle until the selected water temperature is reached, so the length of the cycles may vary, depending upon the household cold water temperature, the amount of laundry in the washer, and the wash temperature setting.

To avoid oversudsing, do not put detergent in the prewash compartment unless you are using one of the Heavy wash programs which has a prewash cycle.


Laundry detergents are available in low-, normal- and high-sudsing formulas. A detergents ability to clean is not relative to the amount of suds it produces. Excess suds in a front-loading washer actually interfere with the cleaning because they cushion the tumbling action. Also, high-sudsing detergents are more difficult to completely rinse out. The use of anything other than a low-sudsing detergent can cause severe oversudsing, which could cause suds to backup through the detergent compartment and run down the front of the washer onto the floor. If oversudsing occurs, run the wash through one or more rinse programs until all items are thoroughly rinsed. Remove the laundry then run the washer through a Normal wash program to get rid of any remaining detergent. Should oversudsing occur, the machine will indicate an error code or message. (See page 9.)
ASKO washers use 50% to 75% less detergent than most other washers. This is because of their low water consumption and the fact that all the wash water is repeatedly circulated through the laundry, ensuring that all the detergent is fully utilized. We recommend that you use powder detergents made specifically for frontloading washers. These are sometimes called HE (High-Efficiency) detergents. Listed below are some low-sudsing powder detergents that have been successfully tested in ASKO washers:
Fab Amway SA8 Fresh Start

All Tide HE Wisk HE

We dont recommend liquid detergents because they tend to produce more suds than powder detergents when used in water temperatures of 150 F or higher. If you should try a liquid detergent, start with a very small amount, such as 1 to 2 tablespoons. Also, liquid detergent can be used for all programs without prewash, so add it into the main wash compartment. Should you prefer to use a liquid detergent, we have provided a partition piece with the detergent drawer specifically for use with liquid detergents. Insert the partition in the slot at the back of the main wash compartment before you pour in the liquid detergent.
We recommend that you do not use any powder detergent that doesnt wash completely out of the detergent drawer.

The amount of detergent needed varies among the different brands, but for most detergents, you need only one or two tablespoons. Using too much detergent can result in detergent residue being left in your clothes, which can cause them to appear gray or dingy. You should start with a small amount of detergent and increase it only if the cleaning results are unsatisfactory. Additionally, you should never put detergent in the prewash compartment unless you are using a wash program that has a prewash cycle. This could cause excess foaming, which could damage the machine. The amount of detergent needed can also depend on the hardness of the water in your area. See the Detergent Amounts Based on Water Hardness section on the next page for more details. Page 5
The detergent drawer on ASKO washers automatically dispenses the detergent and fabric softener at the appropriate times. Simply pour the measured amounts of detergent and softener into the proper compartments (as illustrated) and close the drawer.
We recommend that you dont use bleach in your ASKO washer. The tumbling wash action, temperature control options, extended wash times and proper amount of detergent are sufficient to remove most stains.
Detergent Amounts Based on Water Hardness
The amount of detergent needed can vary due to differences in water hardness. To determine the water hardness in your area, contact your local water utility or area water softening company. The harder the water, the more detergent you may need. Refer to the chart below for the recommended detergent amounts based on water hardness. Remember, you should adjust the amount of detergent you use by small amounts until you find the correct amount. Note that 12 grains and higher is extremely hard water and detergent alone may not be enough. You may need to use a water softener to maximize the performance of your washer. Also, in areas with extremely hard water (9+) you may need to wash at lower temperatures to prevent hard water deposits from forming in the tank and wash system. Different brands of detergent have different amounts of phosphorous for softening water. If you have hard water and use a detergent with less than 8.7% phosphorous content, you may need to use more detergent or use a detergent with a higher phosphorous content.
Recommended Detergent Amounts Based on Water Hardness

Water Hardness Soft (0-3 grains per gal.) Medium (4-8 grains per gal.) Hard (9+ grains per gal.) Detergent Amounts Prewash Main Wash 1 teaspoon 1 teaspoon 1 teaspoon 1 to 1-1/2 tablespoons 1 to 2 tablespoons 2 to 3 tablespoons


Fabric softeners are available in several concentrations. We recommend that you use only two tablespoons of fabric softener. If more softening is desired, try adding slightly more the next time.
Different fabrics require different wash temperatures. The table below gives recommended wash temperatures for different fabrics as well as recommended programs, load sizes, and spin options.

The load size should be determined by the type of fabric being washed. (See page 4.) Spin speed options are not available on all models. Some hand-washable wool and silk items should not go through a spin cycle. These items should be removed from the washer then pressed out in a terry towel to remove excess water before being hung up or laid flat to dry.

To clean the control panel, use only a warm, damp rag. To prevent penetration of water into the door lock and electrical components, never use a spray of any kind. Also, never use abrasive cleaners or scouring pads on the outer surfaces because they will scratch the finish and they could remove the writing on the control panel. Some paper towels may also scratch the finish. WARNING!
Never spray clean the control panel. You could damage the electrical components. Also, never use abrasive cleaners, scouring pads or paper towels on the outer surfaces because they will scratch the finish and they could remove the writing on the control panel.

1. Pull the drawer out as far as it goes then lift it up and pull it out completely, as illustrated. 2. Clean the drawer with a soft brush under warm running water. Do not put the drawer in a dishwasher. 3. Replace the drawer by tilting it into position.


Your washing machine has a pin trap designed to trap pins, hairpins, coins and similar items. This trap should be cleaned occasionally. To do this, follow the steps below: 1. Make sure as much water as possible is drained out of the tub then turn off the power to the machine. 2. Using the flat edge of the liquid detergent partition piece, a flathead screwdriver or similar item, gently pry open the drain pump cover, as illustrated. 3. There is always a small amount of water in the drain pump area. Before you open the drain cover, place a shallow container, such as a pie pan, on the floor below the drain to catch the water. 4. Pull the small black drain hose loose from its position on the door cover and let the water drain into the pan. 5. Unscrew the pin trap cover and lift it out.
Occasionally, a small item may fall between the drum and the outer container. Such items should be removed because they could corrode and cause rust stains on the laundry. To remove the item, follow the instructions below: 1. Insert a flathead screwdriver in the center hole in the paddle and carefully push it to the left.
2. Grip the paddle with your other hand and pull it toward you.
3. Lift up the paddle and remove the object. 4. Replace the paddle in its fixing hole with the F-mark toward you. Check that the paddle clips are properly located in the slots and slide the paddle toward the back as far as it will go.
6. You can now clean out any grit or small objects. You should also clean the pump rotor at the back of the pump housing. 7. Replace the drain cover and return the drain hose to its position on the door.
If you live in an area with hard water, the washer drum may become coated with a grey-white deposit. To remove it, pour about an ounce of citric acid in the drum and run a Normal wash program at 205 F.

Most items can be safely washed in an ASKO washing machine. We recommend that you follow the care label instructions as closely as possible for the best cleaning results. Should problems occur, below are some possible causes and suggested solutions.
NOTE: ASKO has no control over what is put in our
appliances once installed in a customers home. You are solely responsible for what you wash in your ASKO washing machine.
P r o b l e m Possible Cause
Graying Not enough detergent Water not hot enough Improperly prewashed or presoaked Washer overload Soap used in hard water areas Lint or residue Improper sorting of clothes left on clothes Non-phosphate detergent

Suggested Solution

You may need to add slightly more detergent if clothes are heavily soiled, have oily stains, or if your water is very hard. Select a hotter temperature setting for each type of load. Be sure to add a prewash and/or presoak for heavily soiled or oily items. Once wet, the clothes must have room to tumble freely, especially synthetics and permanent press. Be sure you use a laundry detergent, not a soap. Soap reacts with the minerals in hard water to form a soap curd, which can be deposited on clothes. Separate clothes that shed lint (chenille and terrycloth) from clothes that attract lint (synthetics, corduroy, velveteen). Non-phosphate detergents can combine with minerals in hard water and form a residue which can appear to be lint. Use a low phosphate detergent. If possible, install a water softener. Read labels. Most softeners should only be used in the final rinse. Add softener to the softener compartment. If added to the wash cycle, softeners can have a reaction with detergents, producing a white residue. Pilling, which can look like lint, is produced by normal wear on cotton/ polyester blend fabrics. To reduce pilling, wash these fabrics inside out. For the best results, wash in the delicate cycle. Add slightly more detergent. Use the hottest recommended temperature for each type of load. If possible, install a water filter. A small amount of Calgon or other type of water conditioner added once a week is advisable in hard water areas. Follow garment care label instructions carefully. Some fabrics will shrink no matter how they are washed. Some may be machine washed but not machine dried. Knits tend to shrink more than woven fabrics. If a knit has been heatshaped, wash in cool or warm water. Dry with the low setting. This can occur when special stabilizing finishes are reduced from wear or repeated washings. Garment may sometimes be reshaped by pressing after washing and drying. Shrinkage can occur if the knit fabric was not stretched properly by the manufacturer. Press back into shape each time garment is washed and dried. Dark clothes, especially cottons, can bleed excess dyes into wash water. White or light-colored clothes can absorb the dye and discolor. Separate light items from dark items. Always empty all pockets before washing. Cool or cold water is best for retaining dark or bright colors. Protein stains, such as milk, egg, blood and soy formula should be removed in cold water. Oily stains should be washed in the hottest water recommended for each fabric type. The longer a stain remains on a fabric, the harder it is to remove. Treat stains promptly. Do not set stains by machine drying or ironing fabrics until stains are completely removed.

Excessive wrinkling Machine too full Water too hot Rips, snags, excess wear Sharp objects in pockets Hooks, snaps, zippers, buckles Harsh chemicals


Possible Cause Suggested Solution
Use lower wash temperature settings. Empty all pockets and turn inside out before laundering. Fasten all hooks, snaps, and zippers before laundering to avoid snags. Remove sharp buckles. Turn knits inside out. Before washing, rinse harsh chemicals (such as battery acid, hair care chemicals, cleaning solutions, etc.) from towels and other articles to avoid holes in fabrics. Do not allow these unrinsed items to contact other fabrics. Mend all garments before laundering to prevent enlarging of rips. These items may fray at edges from normal wear, not the washer. Wash only in half loads and dont wash in the same load with heavy items, such as towels or jeans.
Existing rips and tears Permanent press items
The Program Control knobs on the W600/W620 have two fault codes: C and S. If the knob stops on one of these, the machine detected a problem.
Water not filling machine. The machine didnt spin.

C Position

This indicates a problem that can probably be taken care of without calling a service technician. Here are some possible problems:
Refer to the Troubleshooting section on the next page for possible causes and solutions. If none of these work, call a service technician.

S Position

If the knob stops on S, this indicates a mechanical problem and you will probably need to call a service technician.
