Overall score includes:
Dirt removal (50%): Calculated according to a formula in the standard, which reduces the score in proportion to the variability of dirt removal over a range of test swatches in the wash load.
Water efficiency (10%): Based on the amount of water used in the whole cycle, per kg of clothes.
Rinse performance (20%): Based on the amount of detergent residues after rinsing.
Spin efficiency (10%): Calculated from the amount of water remaining (per kg) in the damp clothes.
Gentleness (10%): Calculated from the amount of wear on easily frayed squares of cloth.

Great machine with equal consistency. Hand/woollen wash excellent: washed a woollen blanket, very pleased with the result. Everything well washed and spun, clothes feel cared for.
I have used Asko for over twenty years - my last Asko lasted over 19 years : it was only because I couldn't get parts for it that I purchased a new one last year. It wouldn't start the wash, everything else worked. Because of that history I couldn't go past Asko and I haven't been disappointed.
Closing the door could be much better - need to push hard to shut. It does shut, however, it's difficult to know if you have shut it properly. It's my only complaint and concern.
Yes, I recommend this product.
