Installation
AUS
This instruction manual should be kept in a safe place
for future reference. If the washing machine is sold,
given away or moved, please ensure the manual is kept
with the machine, so that the new owner may benefit
from the advice contained within it.
Read these instructions carefully: they contain vital
information relating to the safe installation and operation
of the appliance.
Inside the pack containing this manual, you will also
find the guarantee and all the details necessary for
installation.
Unpacking and levelling
Unpacking
1. Once you have removed all the packaging from the
washing machine, make sure it has not been damaged
during transportation.
If it has been damaged, contact the retailer and do not
proceed any further with the installation process.
2. Remove the 4
protective screws (used
during transportation) and
the corresponding spacer,
located on the rear part of
the appliance (see figure).
3. Close off the holes using the plastic plugs supplied in
the pack.
4. Keep all the parts in a safe place; they will be needed
again if the washing machine is moved to another
location, to prevent the inside of the appliance being
damaged.
Packaging materials should not be used as toys for
children.
Levelling
1. Place the washing machine on a flat sturdy floor,
without resting it up against walls or cabinets.
2. If the floor is uneven,
the front feet of the
machine may be adjusted
until it reaches a horizontal
position (the angle of
inclination must not
exceed 2 degrees).
2
If the appliance is levelled correctly, it will be more
stable and much less likely to cause vibrations and noise
while it is operating, particularly during the spin cycle.
If it is placed on carpet or a rug, adjust the feet in such
a way as to allow a sufficient ventilation space
underneath the washing machine.
Connecting the electricity and water
supplies
Connecting the water inlet hose
Before connecting the inlet hose to the water supply,
run the water until it is perfectly clear.
1. Connect the inlet hose
to the machine by
screwing it onto the cold
water inlet of the
appliance, which is
situated on the top righthand side of the rear part
of the appliance (see
figure).
2. Connect the inlet hose
by screwing it to a cold
water tab using a 3/4 gas
threaded connection (see
figure).
3. Make sure that the hose is not folded over or bent.
The water pressure at the tap must fall within the
values indicated in the Technical data table (see next
page).
If the inlet hose is not long enough, contact a
specialised shop or an authorised technician.
Never use second-hand or old inlet hoses; use the
products supplied with the machine.
Connecting the drain hose
65 - 100 cm
Connect the drain hose to
drain duct piping or a wall
drain located between 65
and 100 cm above the
floor, making sure it is not
bent at all.
Avoid using any extension cord or multiple socket outlet.
AUS
CAUTION: if this appliance is supplied from a cord
extension set or electrical portable outlet device, the
cord extension set or electrical portable outlet device
must be positioned so that it is not subject to splashing
or ingress of moisture.
The cable should not be bent or compressed.
The cable should be replaced only by authorised
technicians.
If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by
Alternatively, rest the drain
hose on the side of a
washbasin or bathtub,
fastening the duct
supplied to the tap (see
figure).
The free end of the hose
should not be underwater.
We advise against the use of hose extensions; if it is
absolutely necessary, the extension must have the same
diameter as the original hose and must not exceed 150
cm in length.

Detergents and laundry
AUS
Detergent
The type and quantity of detergent required depend on
the type of fabric you are washing (cotton, wool, silk,
etc.), as well as its colour, the washing temperature, the
level of soiling and the hardness of the water in the area.
Measuring out the detergent carefully will avoid wastage
and help to protect the environment: although they are
biodegradable, detergents still contain ingredients which
alter the balance of nature.
We recommend the following:
• use powder detergents for white cotton garments and
pre-washing.
• use liquid detergents for delicate cotton garments and
for all low-temperature wash cycles.
• use gentle liquid detergents for wool and silk
garments.
The detergent should be poured into the relevant
compartment - or the dispenser placed directly inside
the drum - before the wash cycle begins. In the latter
case, it will not be possible to select the Cottons with
pre-wash cycle.
Do not use hand washing detergents because these
create too much foam.
Preparing the laundry
• Shake out the garments before loading them into the
machine.
• Divide the laundry according fabric type (symbol on the
washing instruction label) and colour, making sure you
separate the coloured garments from the white ones;
• Empty all pockets and check the buttons;
• Do not exceed the values listed in the “Table of wash
cycles”, which refer to the weight of the laundry when dry.

Washing recommendations
Jeans: use the special “Jeans”
wash cycle for all
denim garments; turn inside out before washing and use
a liquid detergent.
Baby: use the special “Baby”
wash cycle to remove
the remove the soiling typically caused by babies, while
removing all traces of detergent from nappies in order to
prevent the delicate skin of babies from suffering allergic
reactions. The cycle has been designed to reduce the
amount of bacteria by using a greater quantity of water
and optimising the effect of special disinfecting additives
added to the detergent. At the end of the wash cycle,
the machine will slowly rotate the drum; to end the cycle
press the START/PAUSE button.
Silk: use the special “Silk”
wash cycle to wash all silk
garments. We recommend the use of special detergent
which has been designed to wash delicate clothes.
8
Curtains: use the “Silk”
wash cycle. Fold curtains
and place them in a pillow case or mesh bag.
Wool: Ariston is the only washer-dryer brand to have
been awarded the prestigious Woolmark Platinum Care
endorsement (M.0508) by the Woolmark Company,
which means that all woollen garments may be washed
in the washer-dryer, even those which state “hand wash
only”
on the label. The “Wool” wash cycle can be
used to wash all woollen garments in the washer-dryer
while guaranteeing optimum performance.
Bedlinen and towels: use the “Bed & Bath”
cycle
to wash laundry from all over the house; this optimises
fabric softener performance and helps you save time and
energy. We recommend the use of powder detergent.
Stubborn stains: it is wise to treat stubborn stains with
solid soap before washing, and to use the Cottons with
pre-wash cycle.
Wash & Dry
was designed to wash and dry lightly
soiled garments quickly. This cycle may be used to wash
and dry a laundry load of up to 1 kg in just 60 minutes.
To achieve optimum results, use liquid detergent and pretreat cuffs, collars and stains.
Load balancing system
Before every spin cycle, to avoid excessive vibrations
before every spin and to distribute the load in a uniform
manner, the drum rotates continuously at a speed which
is slightly greater than the washing rotation speed. If,
after several attempts, the load is not balanced
correctly, the machine spins at a reduced spin speed. If
the load is excessively unbalanced, the washer-dryer
performs the distribution process instead of spinning. To
encourage improved load distribution and balance, we
recommend small and large garments are mixed in the
load.
Precautions and tips
The machine was designed and constructed in
accordance with international safety regulations. The
following information is provided for safety reasons and
must therefore be read carefully.
General safety
• This appliance is not intended for use by persons
(including children) with reduced physical, sensory or
mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge,
unless they have been given supervision or instruction
concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible
for their safety. Children should be supervised to ensure
that they do not play with the appliance.
- Do not dry unwashed items in the tumble dryer.
- Items that have been soiled with substances such as
cooking oil, acetone, alcohol, petrol, kerosene, spot
removers, turpentine, waxes and wax removers
should be washed in hot water with an extra amount
of detergent before being dried in the tumble dryer.
- Items such as foam rubber (latex foam), shower
caps, waterproof textiles, rubber backed articles and
clothes or pillows fitted with foam rubber pads should
not be dried in the tumble dryer.
- Fabric softeners, or similar products, should be used
as specified by the fabric softener instructions.
- The final part of a tumble dryer cycle occurs without heat
(cool down cycle) to ensure that the items are left at a
temperature that ensures that the items will not be damaged.
WARNING: Never stop a tumble dryer before the end
of the drying cycle unless all items are quickly removed
and spread out so that the heat is dissipated.
• To minimize the risk of fire in a dryer, the following
should be observed:
- Items that have been spotted or soaked with
vegetable or cooking oil constitute a fire hazard and
should not be placed in a tumble dryer. Oil-affected
items can ignite spontaneously, especially when
exposed to heat sources such as in a tumble dryer. The
items become warm, causing an oxidation reaction in
the oil. Oxidation creates heat. If the heat cannot
escape, the items can become hot enough to catch
fire. Piling, stacking or storing oil-affected items can
prevent heat from escaping and so create a fire hazard.
If it is unavoidable that fabrics that contain vegetable or
cooking oil or have been contaminated by hair care
products be placed in a tumble dryer they should first
be washed in hot water with extra detergent - this will
reduce, but not eliminate, the hazard. The 'cool down'
cycle of tumble dryers should be used to reduce the
temperature of the items. They should not be removed
from the tumble dryer or piled or stacked while hot.
- Items that have been previously cleaned in, washed
in, soaked in or spotted with petrol/gasoline, drycleaning solvents or other flammable or explosive
substances should not be placed in a tumble dryer.
Highly flammable substances commonly used in
domestic environments include acetone, denatured
alcohol, petrol/gasoline, kerosene, spot removers
(some brands), turpentine, waxes and wax removers.
- Items containing foam rubber (also known as latex
foam) or similarly textured rubber-like materials should
not be dried in a tumble dryer on a heat setting.
Foam rubber materials can, when heated, produce fire
by spontaneous combustion.

- Fabric softeners or similar products should not be used
in a tumble dryer to eliminate the effects of static electricity
unless this practice is specifically recommended by the
manufacturer of the fabric softener or product.
- Undergarments that contain metal reinforcements should
not be placed in a tumble dryer. Damage to the tumble dryer
can result if metal reinforcements come loose during drying.
When available a drying rack could be used for such items.
- Plastic articles such as shower caps or babies' waterproof
napkin covers should not be placed in a tumble dryer.
- Rubber-backed articles, clothes fitted with foam
rubber pads, pillows, galoshes and rubber-coated
tennis shoes should not be placed in a tumble dryer.
This appliance was designed for domestic use only.
Do not touch the machine when barefoot or with wet
or damp hands or feet.
Do not pull on the power supply cable when
unplugging the appliance from the electricity socket.
Hold the plug and pull.
Do not open the detergent dispenser drawer while the
machine is in operation.
Do not touch the drained water as it may reach
extremely high temperatures.
Never force the porthole door. This could damage the
safety lock mechanism designed to prevent accidental
opening.
If the appliance breaks down, do not under any
circumstances access the internal mechanisms in an
attempt to repair it yourself.
Always keep children well away from the appliance
while it is operating.
The door can become quite hot during the wash cycle.
If the appliance has to be moved, work in a group of
two or three people and handle it with the utmost
care. Never try to do this alone, because the
appliance is very heavy.
Before loading laundry into the Washer-dryer, make
sure the drum is empty.
During the drying phase, the door tends to get quite hot.
Do not use the appliance to dry clothes that have
been washed with flammable solvents (e.g.
trichlorethylene).
Do not use the appliance to dry foam rubber or
similar elastomers.
Make sure that the water tap is turned on during
the drying cycles.
Disposal
• Disposing of the packaging materials: observe local
regulations so that the packaging may be re-used.
• The European Directive 2002/96/EC relating to Waste
Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) states that
household appliances should not be disposed of using
the normal solid urban waste cycle. Exhausted
appliances should be collected separately in order to
optimise the cost of re-using and recycling the materials
inside the machine, while preventing potential damage
to the atmosphere and to public health. The crossed-out
dustbin is marked on all products to remind the owner of
their obligations regarding separated waste collection.
For more information relating to the correct disposal of
household appliances, owners should contact their local
authorities or appliance dealer.

Opening the porthole door manually
In the event of a powercut, the door may be opened in
order to remove the laundry from the machine. Proceed
as follows:
1. Remove the plug from the
electrical socket.
2. To prevent water from
escaping when the door is
opened, make sure that the
level of the water is lower
than the seal around the
porthole door; if this is not
the case, remove any
excess water using the drain
hose (see figure).
3. Insert the key supplied with the appliance into the
groove at the side, as illustrated in the figure.
4. Press down on the key while pulling the handle
outwards to open the door.

Care and maintenance
Cutting off the water and electricity
supplies
• Turn off the water tap after every wash cycle. This will
limit wear on the hydraulic system in the machine and
help to prevent leaks.
• Unplug the appliance when cleaning it and during all
maintenance work.
Cleaning the machine
The outer parts and rubber components of the appliance
can be cleaned using a soft cloth soaked in lukewarm
soapy water. Do not use solvents or abrasives.
Cleaning the detergent dispenser
drawer
To remove the drawer, press
lever (1) and pull the drawer
outwards (2) (see figure).
Wash it under running
water; this procedure should
be repeated frequently.

2
1. take off the cover panel on the front of the machine
by first pressing it in the centre and then pushing
downwards on both sides until you can remove it (see
figures);
2. position a container so
that it will collect the water
which flows out
(approximately 1.5 l) (see
figure);
3. unscrew the lid by
rotating it in an anticlockwise direction (see
figure);
4. clean the inside thoroughly;
5. screw the lid back on;
6. reposition the panel, making sure the hooks are
securely in place before you push it onto the appliance.
Checking the water inlet hose
Check the inlet hose at least once a year. If there are
any cracks, it should be replaced immediately: during
the wash cycles, water pressure is very strong and a
cracked hose could easily split open.
The washer dryer is fitted with a self-cleaning pump
which does not require any maintenance. Sometimes,
small items (such as coins or buttons) may fall into the
protective pre-chamber at the base of the pump.
Make sure the wash cycle has finished and unplug the
appliance.
