In 1950, an enterprising young Swedish farmer named Karl-Erik Andersson set out to build his mother a different kind of washer. A unique, energy- and water-efficient machine that would reflect a farmer's love and respect for nature. One with superior cleaning power and reliability that could heat water, spin, and even boast durable, state-of-the-art, stainless steel drums. A washing machine like no other. So the young farmer built his amazing washer, surpassing even his meticulous mother's high standards. Indeed, the results were so extraordinary, he was convinced to share his creation with others. So he built a world-class engineering and manufacturing facility right on the family farm - where it stands to this day - and a new company was born. The company we now call ASKO.
Today, ASKO is an international corporation with a full line of high-performance washers, dryers and dishwashers. ASKO appliances still do a better job of cleaning with a fraction of the water, electricity and detergent of ordinary machines. Every component is constructed of steel rather than plastic wherever possible. And every ASKO product is still built with Scandinavian quality and environmental sensitivity - just as Karl-Erik Andersson intended. In short, ASKO appliances are some of the best-performing, most ecology-friendly, and longest lasting on earth. Made especially for those - like a certain Swedish mother - who appreciate the difference.

- Our sensors work together intelligently to ensure an optimum water level in the machine.
- The sensors detect when the quantity of water exactly matches the program you have selected, and it always lets in the right amount of water regardless of the water pressure in your pipes.
- Also, the sensors monitor the entire wash process and remedy any shortcomings during the program.
- If, for example, you wash a large plastic bowl which gets turned over and fills up with water, reducing the amount of effective water in the dishwasher, the machine immediately adds new water to ensure the full cleaning result.
- The sensors also make sure that the dishwasher does not start should you happen to forget to turn the water on.
- ASKO's fan-dry system gets the load completely dry. After the final rinse, the moist air in the dishwasher is mixed with dry air from outside, and the machines dries completely.
- ASKO's fully integrated machines also have this drying system, which is quite uncommon on the market.
- To eliminate the risk of flooding in the kitchen we have developed AquaSafe, an advanced water safety system encompassing up to 16 different points, all of which help to ensure a leak-safe dishwasher.
- This dishwasher is also Kid Safe since it is possible to lock the buttons on the control panel. This is to prevent any small fingers from starting the machine or altering any settings.
- Thanks to ASKO's condensation and cooling channel, which leads steam away through a concealed nozzle, no hot steam blows out from the panel which can otherwise cause scalding (or ruin the worktop). There is also an anti steam-puff shield should you open t
- The dishwasher environment is extremely basic. This means that the machine can start rusting easily. An ASKO doesn't since we use non-magnetic 18.9 high-quality stainless steel in all parts that come in contact with water.
- The XL dishwasher series has one of the largest capacities on the market.
- The internal loading height of 54 cm makes room for larger plates and taller glasses.
- It also means you can load 40% more dishes compared to a standard dishwasher.
- The smart four level rack system with the unique middle rack affords endless possibilities.
