Instructionsforinstallationanduse www.aristonappliances.us 4 YourWasher Dryer features three different speeds during the wash cycle. During the Cotton cycle the drum spins at 1,200 or 800 rpm depending on how you set it. During Permanent Press the drum spins at 850 rpm. During delicates, the drum spins at 500 rpm. When drying heavy cotton articles such as bath towels or jeans, be sure the “Regular” washer setting is selected. The faster spinning will extract more water from these highly absorbent fabrics and reduce the degree of dampness as the machine goes into the drying mode. This will cut down on your drying time. Use Liquid Fabric Softener. Fill the softener compartment up to the level marked. Using fabric softener fluffs out clothes immediately after the wash cycle. This helps speed drying time and reduce wrinkles. This Washer Dryer is a 110 Volt machine, so the heating element requires more time to achieve full heat than a larger 220 volt unit requires. The heating element will take about 10 minutes to reach full heat. To dry your laundry, the Washer Dryer blows heated air into the rotating drum. As the drum tumbles your laundry, the warm air dries it. If the drum is overfilled with laundry, the air is not allowed to circulate and clothes will not dry properly. Use Low sudsing Detergent. This is recommended for all front loading washers. It ensures there is no over sudsing, which may reduce the performance of your machine. Also, this prevents damage to your machine which may be caused by excess suds entering the condensing chamber and clogging the fan blower mechanism with lint. When sorting laundry always take into consideration the quantity and type of fabric contained in the load. Highly absorbent fabrics such as those used in towels or jeans will absorb more water and become very heavy when saturated. If you notice that your clothes are taking longer than usual to dry you may be overloading the machine, or washing too many highly absorbent articles for a single load.

Instructionsforinstallationanduse www.aristonappliances.us Your washer dryer operates on 110 volts and has a 1,300 watt dryer. It will take a longer time to dry clothes than a traditional dryer (which operates on 220 volts, 5,000 watts). However, with the following tips, you can increase the efficiency of the dryer. 1. DOOR REMAINS LOCKED DURING DRYING: The door is electronically kept locked drying cycle, with the Mode+Door Lock light on. This prevents any starting and shutting the heater, which in turn conserves energy by trapping the heat. 2. FABRIC SOFTENER:When the Wash and Dry cycles are set to run consecutively, the preheat function comes on automatically. In this, the heater is turned on during the last spin cycle of the wash program. In the Regular Wash program, the clothes will be getting spun at 1,200 rpm, while hot air from the dryer will be entering the drum at the same time. While centrifugal force causes clothes to stick to the sides of the drum, the hot air will “bake” them to the sides. It may take 30 minutes or more for the clothes to unstick and fall into the drum.USING LIQUID FABRIC SOFTENERWILL CAUSETHE CLOTHESTO UNSTICK IMMEDIATELY.THIS HELPS DRY CLOTHES FASTER AND CAUSES LESS WRINKLES. 3.OVERLOADING: The drum has a capacity of 12 lbs. While this is the largest drum available on any combination washer-dryer, it is smaller than a standard U.S. washer.The drum should not be overloaded.With too many clothes, airflow is reduced, increasing drying time. A maximum of 2/3 of the drum full of clothes is recommeded for ideal drying. 4. OVER DRYING: This machine uses a condensing dryer. In this cold water is used to condense the moisture from the hot air. Since there is no external exhaust system, the moisture remains in the machine. Frequently, when it seems the clothes are damp, it is actually the remaining moisture (like dew). Take clothes out and within a few minutes they will be dry. Do not overdry the clothes. 5.USE LOW SUDSING DETERGENT: By using low sudsing detergent, you are preventing suds from entering the condensing chamber. When suds enter the condensing chamber, lint particles can clog up the chamber and the fan blower. Over time, this reduces drying efficiency and may require the fan blower (impeller) to be cleaned. Dryer Efficiency This appliance is an automatic washer with a capacity of up to: 12 lbs.

Before washing, you can do a great deal to ensure better results. Divide your garments according to fabric and color. Read the labels, follow their guidelines. LAUNDRY PREPARATION Sorting Clothes should be sorted from separate items which could damage other garments. Sort items into loads according to similar colors, fabrics, garment construction and degrees of soil. -Color.Separateclothesintothreegroups:whitesandpastels, medium and bright colors and dark colors. Items which bleed color should be washed alone. - Type of fabrics. Delicate items should be separated from sturdier items. Fabrics that shed lint should be separated from those which shed none or attract lint. - Garment constructions. Garments that may fray easily or that have unusual trim require gentle care. These garments may be washed in the loader using the knit cycle. If garments are fragile and delicate, hand washing may be desirable. - Degree of soil. Heavily soiled items should be separated from the rest of the wash to prevent transfer of soil in the wash water. Inspection While sorting clothes into wash-loads, also inspect each garment to see if it requires special care. - Remove stains, while they are fresh and easy to get out. Try coldwaterfirsttoremoveunknownstains.Hotwatersetsstains containingproteinsuchasblood,egg,meatandmilk.Toremove difficult stains, refer to the removal Chart at the end of the manual. Pretreating Pretreat heavily soiled areas such as collars, cuffs and center of pillowcases by using a prewash spray, or brushing liquid detergent or a laundry detergent or a laundry detergent and water paste over the areas before washing. MDividing your garments according to fabric and color, is very important for good results Operating instructions - Pretreat heavily soiled areas such as collars, cuffs and centers of pillowcases. Refer to the “Pretreating” section for specific instructions. - Mend rips and tears, before washing, so further damage is not done to garments. - Empty pockets. Objects left in pockets such as crayon, pens or markers, or tobacco crumbs may stain an entire wash load. Paper tissues will shred leaving bits on each item in the washer. Remove coins and other foreign objects to prevent damage to the machine. - Fasten all hooks, zippers and buttons. - Turn knit garments wrong side out to reduce the tendency of knits to “pill”. Fabric “pills” are balls of fibers on the surface the garments caused by wear or friction. - Remove loose dirt and sand. Brush dirt from trouser cuffs; shake or vacuum rugs to remove loose surface soil. - If buckle is washable, place a scrap of material securely around the ornament before washing and drying to prevent scratchinganddamagetothemachine.Removenon-washable trims, buckles, buttons and belts. - Tie strings, belts and apron sashes into bows to avoid tangling during washing. - Before loading the washer, make sure the drum is empty.

If an entire item is heavily soiled or very stained, it may be both easierandmoreeffectivetoprewashtheitembeforelaundering than to pretreat every spot. Prewashing Prewash excessively soiled clothes, such as work or children’s clothes. They often get very soiled. Prewashing with detergent will help loosen the soil. Laundry aids Detergents are the most popular cleaning agents for home laundry. Using too little detergent results in poor wash quality, while using too much causes excessive suds and poor rinsing. Detergents not only remove soil, but also hold it in suspension in the wash water to prevent redepositing it on the wash load. The amount to use depends on wash load size, amount of soil, water hardness and detergent type. ALWAYS measure the amount of detergent. The amount of suds formed is not necessarily an indication of how much to use. Some detergents form a great amount of suds, others only a few. Use only detergents suitable for front loading washers. LAUNDRY AIDS 1. Use only low sudsing detergent. 2.Thedegreeofsoilwillchangedetergentamounts.Forheavier soiled loads, increase the amount of detergent used. 3. If water is extremely hard, detergent should be increased. Less detergent should be used in soft water. 4. If garments have been pretreated, decrease the amount of detergent. If garments have ben heavily pretreated, it may not be necessary to add detergent. 5. If the previous machine owned was a top loader, the initial washloads in a front loader may require a reduced quantity of detergent until the detergent remaining in the clothes is removed.Olddetergenttrappedinthegarmentswillbereleased during the tumble action wash cycle. For quantities of detergent to be used, refer to the detergent manufacturer’s instructions on the box. Detergent will be flushed automatically into the machine from thedetergentdispenser.Thesudslevelshouldneverrisemore thanhalfwayupto the porthole.Toomuchfoamwillnotimpede the wash action of your machine but will rise through the detergent dispenser and make a mess on the floor ! If this should happen clear excessive suds by setting the timer to the beginning of the first rinse and allow the machine to rinse out. Bleaches Bleach functions to whiten clothes, remove certain problem stains, to deodorize and in some cases to sanitize; however bleachingisnotasubstituteforgoodlaundrytechniques.Bleach should never be added to the rinse water. Always dilute bleach before using. To add bleach, open detergent dispenser door and pour in compartment 4 (see page 15 and 13-14). WARNING: Undernocircumstancesoverfillthebleachdispenser.Excessive bleach will run directly into the machine and may possibly damage the clothes. Fabric Softener All fabrics, particularly towels, benefit from the use of fabric conditioners in the final rinse. Items of laundry feel softer, are more easily ironed and the clinging affect of synthetics is considerably reduced. Pourthesoftener into“Additives”compartmentofthedetergent dispenser to the level indicated on the syphon. Under no circumstances overfill, as the softener will immediately syphon into the machine and in so doing, impair the wash results. Starting the washer-dryer After installing your new washer-dryer, start a wash cycle by setting a desired program . always check that: 1. The door is closed correctly. 2. The plug is secured in the socket. 3. The water supply is turned on. Choose the desired program The program is selected according to the type of garments that need to be washed.

WARNING Useful tips Never use your washing machine to wash... torn, fraying or non-hemmed linen. If it is absolutely neccessary, place it in a bag for protection. Do not wash colored linen with whites. Watch the weights ! For best results, do not exceed the weight limits stated below (figures show weight of dry garments): - Resistant fabrics: 12 lbs(5.5 kg) maximum - Synthetic fabrics: 6 lbs 10 oz (3 kg) maximum - Delicate fabrics: 5 lbs 8 oz (2.5 kg) maximum Denim Alert. Some overalls have straps with hooks that can damage the drum of your washing machine or other garments during the wash. To minimize the risk, place hooks in the pocket and fasten with safety pins. Vacations: unplug the appliance. It is recommended that you should unplug the machine from the socket and turn off the water supply. Leave the door ajar to allow air circulation to the draw and the door gasket area. This will prevent unpleasant odours. Combined (Wash&Dry) • Look at table A to the side and follow the instructions provided for MAX load to have an automatic washing and drying cycle. • Follow the instructions for wash only (see page 9, the section "Starting the Washer- Dryer") • Set the dryer time on Dryer knob. • Press the Power button. If the laundry load to be washed and dried exceeds the maximum load (see table A), then: - follow the instructions provided for wash only (page 9, in section "Starting the Washer-Dryer" and follow these instructions. - when the wash cycle has finished, remove your washing, divide it up and replace part of it inside the drum. Now follow the instructions provided for a dry only cycle. Repeat this procedure for the remainder of the load. Dry only • Load the clothes no more than 2/3 full (8 lbs/3.5 kg) for cottons, (see table for other fabrics), make sure that: - the door is shut correctly; -theplugisinsertedinthesocket; - the water tap is turned on; - Power button has not been pressed (O position). • Set the Washer knob to the appropriate “OFF” setting depending on the type of fabric • Set dryer time on the Dryer knob • Press Power button to start. When Drying is Complete... Mode+ Lock light flashes slowly. Turn the washer-dryer off by pressing the Power button (O position). Wait approximately one minute before opening the door. Once you have removed the dry clothes from the appliance, leave the door open or ajar to avoid the formation of bad odors and turn off the water (if attached with a faucet adapter kit.) The data contained in the table are purely indicative. The drying time depends largely on the type of material (some fibers absorb more water than others), on the dampness of the articles when the drying is started and on the amount of the laundry. Table napkins, towels and similar (rather thick) articles will take a long time to dry. A combined Washing and Drying Program For more delicate garments: protect underwear, tights and stockings and delicate items by placing them in a linen bag For cotton loads of less than 2 lbs (1 Kg), use the drying program designed for synthetic fabrics. Aspincycleiscarriedoutduringthedryingifyouhave set a cotton program. IMPORTANT For best results, we recommend you use very little detergent, taking care not to wash more than 3 lbs (1,5 kg) of laundry. WOOLCYCLE TableA. Drying time (minutes) - Pure new wool: 3 lbs(1,5 kg) maximum - Bathrobe:5 lbs 8 oz (2.5 kg) maximum How much does it weigh? 1 sheet 11/4 lb (400-550 gr.) 1 pillow case 4 oz.(120 gr.) 1 tablecloth 1 lb (450 gr.) 1 bathrobe 2-3 lbs (900-1,300 gr.) 1 towel 5oz/1 lb (150-500 gr.)

Instructionsforinstallationanduse www.aristonappliances.us Useful tips about the detergent dispenser It’s important for a good wash The first secret is the easiest: the detergent dispenser is opened by pulling it out. The detergent dispenser can be removed and cleaned: pull it outwards, as indicated in the figure. Then leave it under warm running water for a few minutes. Detergent dispenser cleansing 1 2 In compartment 1: Detergent for pre-washing (powder) In compartment 2: Detergent for washing (powder or liquid) In compartment 3: Additives (softeners, perfumes, etc.) In compartment 4: Bleach and delicate bleach. MAX 1 2 4 3 Cutting costs efficiently Aguidetoenvironmentallyfriendlyandeconomicuse ofyourappliance. MAXIMISE THE LOAD SIZE Achieve the best use of energy, water, detergent and time by using the recommended maximum load size. SAVE up to 50% energy by washing a full load instead of 2 half loads. DO YOU NEED TO PRE-WASH? For heavily soiled laundry only! SAVE detergent, time, water and between 5 to 15% energy consumption by NOT selecting Prewash for slight to normally soiled laundry. ISAHOTWASHREQUIRED? Pretreat stains with stain remover or soak dried in stains in water before washing to reduce the necessity of a hot wash programme. SAVE up to 50% energy by using a 60°C wash programme. BEFORE USING A DRYING PROGRAM ... SAVE energy and time by selecting a high spin speed to reduce the water content in laundry before using a drying programme. 15 Bleachcycleandstain removal button If bleaching is necessary, the extra case 4 (provided) must be inserted into compartment 1 of the detergent dispenser. When pouring in the bleach, be careful not to exceed the "max" level indicated on the central pivot (see illustration). The use of the additional bleach container excludes the possibility of using the pre-wash cycle. Traditional bleach can only be used on sturdy white fabrics, whereas delicate bleach can be used for colored fabrics, synthetics and for wool. You cannot bleach with the “Silk” program.(See page 11). NOTE:BLEACHONLYWORKS WITH HOTWASHTEMP. MAX MAX You must follow the quantity recommendations provided by the manufacturers when adding detergent or fabric softener. Quantities will vary according to the wash load, the water hardness and how soiled the clothes are. Experience will help you select the right quantity almost automatically. Before adding detergent for pre-washing in compartment 1, make sure that the extra compartment for bleach 4 has not been inserted. Ensure no overfilling when adding fabric conditioner in compartment 3. The washing machine automa- tically adds the softener to the wash in each program. Liquid detergent is poured into compartment 2 just a few seconds before starting the wash cycle. Remember that liquid detergent is only designed for wash cycles of up to 60 degrees on non pre-wash items. Special containers are sold with liquid or powder deter- gents for placing inside the washing machine drum, these are positioned according to the instructions found in the detergent box Never use hand wash deter- gent, because it may form too much foam, which could da- mage the washing machine. Detergents that are specifically formulated for both hand and machine wash are an excep- tion. One last secret: when washing with cold water, always reduce the amount of detergent you use: it dissolves less easily in cold water than in hot water, so part of it would be wasted.
Instructionsforinstallationanduse www.aristonappliances.us The washer-dryer fails to fill with water. Is the hose correctly connected to the tap? Is there a water shortage ? There could be work in progress in your building or street. Is there sufficient water pressure? The autoclave may be malfunctioning. Is the tap filter clean? If the water is very calcareous, or if work has recently been carried out on the water piping, the tap filter could be clogged with particles and debris. Is the rubber hose kinked? The rubber hose bringing water to washer-dryer must be as straight as possible. Make sure it is not squashed or kinked. The Washer knob keeps turning? Wait a few minutes for the drain pump to empty the tub, switch the washer-dryer “I only want an authorised specialised technician with original Ariston spare parts!” off, select one of the positions stop/Reset , then switch it back on. If the knob continues to turn, call for assistance because it is showing an anomaly. The washer-dryer continuously fills and drains water. Is the drain hose positioned too low? It must be installed at a height ranging from 25” to 34” (62 to 86 cms.). Is the end of the hose immersed in water? Does the wall drainage system have a breather pipe? If the problem persists even after these checks, turn the water supply off the machine and call for assistance. If you live on an upper floor of your building, there may be a problem with your drain trap. To solve this problem, a special valve must be installed. Beforecalling,readthefollowing Troubleshooting In most cases, when your washer-dryer fails to work, the problems arising can be easily solved without having to call for a technician. Before calling for assistance, always check these points. The washer-dryer fails to start. Is the plug correctly inserted into the socket? It could have been moved while cleaning. Is there electricity in the house? A circuit breaker may have switched off as a result of too many electrical appliances working at the same time. Or maybe due to a general failure in your entire area. Is the washer-dryer door closed properly? For safety reasons, the washer-dryer cannot work if the door is open or not shut properly. Is the On/Off button pressed? If it is, then a program has been set. Is the Washer knob in the correct position for those models concerned? Is the water supply turned on? For safety reasons, if the washer-dryer does not load water, it cannot start a wash cycle. Simple: with the new Ariston technology, you need less than half of it, to get good results on twice as much! This is why you cannot see the water through the door: because there is little, very little of it, to respect the environment yet without renouncing maximum cleanliness. And, on top of that, you are also saving electricity. But where did all the water go? You will be charged for a service call while the appliance is in warranty if the problem is not causedbydefectiveworkmanshipormaterials. RIGHT WRONG Turnoffthewater supply after use.

Is the correct amount being used? Anexcessiveamountof detergent, besides producing too much foam, does not guarantee a more effective wash,andcausesscalinginthe internal parts of the appliance. The washer-dryer does not dry. Checkwhether: the plug has been correctly inserted into the socket;there is electricity in your home; the appliance door has been shut properly; a delayed start (if available) has not been selected; program knob A has been set to Reset and the drying cycle knob C has been set to position 0 minutes. The washer-dryer doesn't dry properly. Check whether: 1) the end of the drain hose is underwater; 2) the drain pump is obstructed; 3) the advice given on the maxi- mum loads has been taken; 4) the water tap has been turned on. If, despite all checks, the washer-dryer fails to function and the problem persists, call your nearest authorized Customer Service Centre, 1-800-426-0825 providing the following information: - the nature of malfunction - the model type no. (Mod. ....) - the serial number (S/N ....) This information can be found on the data plate situated at the back of the washer-dryer. Is there space between the machine and adjacent units? If it is not a built-in model, the washer-dryer will oscillate a bit during the spin cycle. A few cm of space should therefore be left around it. The washer-dryer leaks. Is the metal ring of the inlet hose properly attached? Turn off the water supply, unplug the appliance and try tightening its attachment without forcing it. Is the detergent dispenser obstructed? Remove and wash it under tap water. Is the drain hose well attached? Turn off the water supply, unplug the appliance and try tightening its attachment. Is the drain hose kinked? The drain hose must be as straight as possible. Make sure the drain hose is not crimped or kinked. Is the washer-dryer’s drain hose clogged? Is there an extension of the drain hose? If so, is it positioned incorrectly, blocking the water flow? Excessive vibration during the spin cycle. Have all shipping bolts been removed during installation? See the following page on installation procedures. Has the washer-dryer been levelled correctly? The levelling of the appliance should be checked periodically. Adjust the feet and check them with a level. The washer-dryer does not drain or spin. Does the selected program incorporate water drai- ning? Some programs stop at the end of the wash cycle and draining will have to be selected manually. Is the “Easy iron" function -where provided - enabled? This function requires manual selection for draining. Is the drain pump clogged? To check it, turn off the water supply, unplug the washer- dryer and follow the instructions on page 18, or call technical support. 17 Drain: to avoid flooding be careful to the adjust the drain hose to at least 25” above the base of the appliance. Fasten the hoses securely. Cleaning Filters Remove filters using tweezers, clean and replace Remove filters, clean and replace Tape Tape Tape Always get assistance from authorized service agent and always insist on original spare parts.
Instructionsforinstallationanduse www.aristonappliances.us 18 When in need, check the pump and the rubber hose. The washer-dryer comes equipped with a self-cleaning pump that does not require any cleaning or maintenance. Small objects may accidentally fall into the pump: coins, hair clips, loose buttons, etc. To avoid possible damage, they are withheld in an accessible coin trap, located at the bottom right end of the machine. Attention: Before attempting to examine this coin trap, first ensure that the machine has finished its program and is empty. Unplug the machine, as with any maintenance. To gain access, gently ease down the top of the kick plate panel at the base of the machine with a screwdriver etc, to release it. Then ease the top edge forward to allow it to be lifted clear (Fig. 1). Place a shallow dish or tray below the cover of the pre-chamber to catch any water that might be present. Open the cover by turning it counter-clockwise (Fig. 2). When finished cleaning, ensure that the cover is securely tightened. Re-fit the kick plate cover by inserting the hooks on its lower edge into the slots and ease the top edge back into position. The water inlet hose Check the rubber hoses at least once a year. If you see any cracks, replace the hose immediately. When you use your washer- dryer, water pressure is very strong and a cracked tube could easily split open. Superior quality Stainless Steel hoses are also available for purchase. Fig. 1 Fig. 2 Your washer-dryer is a reliable companion in life. It is just as important for you to keep it in shape. Your washer-dryer is designed to provide reliable service over many years. A few simple steps will help to extend its life and avoid problems. It is advisable to turn off water faucets when the machine is not in use. This protects the hoses, etc. If the water in your area is hard, use a water softener (hard water often leaves white stains around taps or drains, especially in bath tubs. For more accurate information about the type of water in the system, call your local water utility). Pockets must always be emptied, removing pins, badges, coins, or any other hard objects. CLEANINGTHEEXTERIOR The washer-dryer exterior should be cleaned with a rag dipped in lukewarm water and soap. Do not use polish of any kind on the plastic trim. Some polishes contain agents which can damage plastics. Cleaning the interior If you live an area where phosphate detergents are banned, it may be necessary to recondition the washer periodically. Because a non- phosphate detergent must be used, body oils and detergent may accumulate in the washer tub. This is particularly evident in hard water areas or in homes where heavily soiled garments are regularly laundered. To remove this build-up, run the washer through a complete cycle using hot water and 2 cups of a non precipitating water conditioner. Do not add any clothes, detergent, or other laundry aids. Once the accumulation has been removed, your laundry should be satisfactory if you follow the preventive suggestions in this owner’s manual. GENERALMAINTENANCE After washing is complete the water faucets should be turned off to relieve water pressure on the hoses. Wipe the inside of the door with a soft cloth to remove any remaining moisture. Periodically, a thin coat of pa- ste wax should be applied to the inner door or the washer; especially to the area which is immediately next to the door window. This will protect the door finish from laundry aid spills and any discoloration which may results of these spills. Clear the CoinTrap Clear the coin trap in case of blockage. For instructions, please read the section below. Never add too much detergent. Detergents already contain deliming agents. Only if the water is particularly hard, that is, rich in lime content, do we recommend the use of a specific product at every wash. A periodical wash cycle with a dose of a deliming product, without detergents or washing, may prove useful. Never use too much detergent or additives because this could cause excessive sudsing, scaling, and possible damage to components in your washer-dryer. It is important to wash the detergent dispenser regularly. To prevent dried washing powder from accumulating, place the dispenser under running water for a few minutes. Easy Care and Maintenance Treat your machine well and it will provide many years of trouble free service Do not forget to empty all pockets: small objects can cause serious damage to your washer-dryer ! Use only low-sudsing deter- gents.
