Warning to anyone considering buying an Asko appliance!!! DO NOT EXPECT ANY ASSISTANCE FROM CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! They do not know the meaning of the term!!! I bought a very expensive Asko Washing Machine only 8 years ago and it is a useless piece of crap. Asko claimed the average life span to be 20 years or more. You better hope it lasts half of that, and with no problems, because if you have problems, you are on your own!!!
