Unevenly distributed laundry or lumps of laundry in the washing machine drum may cause problems such as vibration and noisy operation. The washing machine will sense this and activate the UKS* (*unbalance system). Smaller loads (e.g. one towel, one sweater, one bathrobe etc.) or clothes made of materials with special geometrical properties are virtually impossible to distribute evenly across the washing machine drum (slippers, large items etc.). This results in several attempts to redistribute the laundry, which in turn leads to longer program duration. In extreme cases of unfavourable conditions, the program can be completed without the spinning cycle. UKS* (*unbalance system) allows stable operation and extends the useful life of the appliance.

Wet laundryA small amount of laundry will often be unevenly distributed. Loosen and redistribute the laundry and select the Drain or Spinning program.
There are traces of grease (or grease rolls) on the clothes.The laundry was very greasy. Wash the laundry again. When your laundry is this heavily soiled, add more washing powder or use a liquid detergent.
There are white residues of washing powder on the laundry.This is not due to poor rinsing by your washing machine, but rather due to phosphate- free detergents which contain ingredients (zeolites) for water softening. These ingredients may be deposited on the laundry.

  1. My Asko front loader makes a rattling sounds as it washes normally.
    Can something have fallen between the tub and the outer casing that rattles as if a bearing is loos or worn.
    The machine is only 8 years old and is used only once per month.
