This Asko model dishwasher is a built-in dishwasher with a height of 34 to 36 ½ inches, depth of 24” and width of 24”. The variances in height are due to the adjustable feet. With the door open, there is a depth of 49-1/2 inches. The tank is stainless steel and the weight is approximately 104 lb’s with a voltage of 120. Many dishwashers consume roughly about 7-10 gallons of water/cycle, but the Asko D5122XXL model dishwasher only uses 3.8 gallons with an annual energy consumption of 259 kWh. In short, this model is also environmentally green.
The installation is extremely easy and user friendly. One main problem facing the many families who utilize this economically powerful and green appliance is the event of some water left at the bottom of the tank after a cycle. This is completely normal (if there is only a little). At the start of the next cycle, the low amounts of remaining water will be pushed through the drain. However, if there is a great deal of water, check the hose to make sure it is hooked up properly. Another reported issue was relatively longer running time when it is loaded with pans and pots. It could be depending on the size and total number of such items to be cleaned out completely, so it might be subjective opinion when comparing its total running time in a regular run cycle mode.
Other customers also reported that if they wanted to stop the washer and change the cycle while running they couldn’t find any easy way to do it, and it had to be stopped completely first and then readjust the status on the dial. This happened to rinse aid dispenser as well, where customers were having hard time to open and change when needed. It might be due to different operational mechanism or style of this unique product from the manufacturer, therefore adjusting customers’ operational habits could be another factor to be considered.
