What are the benefits of a front loading washing machine?

Before deciding on an appliance, it’s worth weighing up the advantages of front loading washing machines. ASKO product development has always been user-focused for creation of appliances that are reliable, strong, easy to use and easy on the eye. Here are just a few benefits of front loading washing machines.

A cleaner result without damaging clothes:Front loading washing machines do away with the central agitator necessary in top load washers. Gravity assisted tumble washing of front load machines removes the potential for catching stray threads and ripping clothing, a scenario all too common with their top loading counterparts.

Run fewer wash cycles: As front loaders don’t require a central agitator with large rubber fins, the entire cavity is dedicated to fitting more clothing items inside the machine. In other words, with a front loader you can wash less often, with superior results.

Water and energy saving: On average, front loading washing machines use one-third the amount of water, energy and detergent. The initial investment in ASKO style will be appreciated when you notice savings on water, energy and shopping bills every month.

Reliability: Front loaders have less parts, meaning less chance of the machine malfunctioning or breaking. Reliability also includes harmony with natural gravity tumbling instead of central agitating that is tougher on washing machine hardware.

Quieter operation: ASKO front loading washing machines feature vibration control for stabilising the internal drum, minimising unbalanced rattling for quiet efficiency at any time of the day.

What is the capacity of this washing machine?

The ASKO W4086C.W.AU front loading washing machine has a 1-8 kg capacity and spin speed of 1600 rpm. With a 2000 W heater capacity and 60 litre drum volume the W4086C.W.AU is deserving of its 4.5 star energy rating and 5 star water rating. The machine weighs 75.5 kg, making it an incredibly sturdy and stable appliance capable of handling the toughest wash.

With noise levels of only 77dB maximum, washing can be a household duty that goes on behind the scenes instead of an ear-splitting distraction. ASKO front loading washing machines are also designed for versatility, accommodating every type of wash. Run modes include Normal mode, Green mode, Allergy mode, Speed mode and Intensive mode, ensuring a sparkling clean and healthy wash every time.
