Asko Spring Training
« on: May 07, 2008, 07:07:44 AM »

I spent the afternoon at our local Asko distributor participating in the Spring training and new product launch. Of particular interest to me was the new full sized front load washer and dryer set. Asko is known for their smaller line of laundry products (or family sized as they call them) so now they have entered the full sized (or XXL as they call them) market. For those that are familiar with the LG laundry, the Asko products will look VERY familiar even though they are made for Asko not by LG, but Daewoo. Both units were very straight forward and each had a few of their own nice features to set them apart from the rest of the pack, including a reversible door on the washer. If you find yourself servicing one of these, the one trick I will pass on is you must remove the control panel to access the top. Other than that, they seem to be much like the rest of them.

The washer has two screws behind the dispenser drawer, then the whole panel pulls off, the dryer has one screw on the left side hidden under a plug, remove it and the whole panel lifts up.  Then you can get to the three screws that hold the top on.

Thanks JW,

To remove the top of an LG should be the three screws under the top panel on the back of the dryer and then slide it to the rear.  You WILL need to get a little forcefull with it since they are often stuck in place.

There's no real trick other than removing the top, to get to the screws holding the control panel on, which is covering the screws holding the front on.  Pretty much the same as the rest of the full sized front loaders. Just keep removing screws until the part you want falls out.   8)

JW, why don't you point the individual to the LG dryer manual on this forum? I bet it has all the info.
