This Asko washer, now 15 years old, was in the house when we moved in. Had to get rid of the matching dryer. Now we have the washer plugged into a non-Asko unit. One problem: the Asko runs on European 240v but 50 Hz, whereas the new dryer, although European, runs on typical US 240v, 60Hz.

The washer was recently serviced, but now it won't stay on or advance through the cycles. Doesn't seem to be a door issue, though it could be.

Could it be the mismatch in the cycles (Hz)?

Don't want to spend a lot more money on service calls, but willing to try to work on it a bit.

You've had the washer for 15 years and it's an Asko. Time to get rid of the pain in the Asko. Suggestions are a Whirlpool Duet Sport, Frigidaire front load washer and if you MUST buy European, a Bosch or Miele.

I couldn't agree more about the Asko! Maybe I just needed permission to get a new machine.

Thanks!
