Keep this instruction manual in a safe place for future reference. Should the appliance be sold, transferred or moved, make sure the instruction manual accompanies the washing machine to inform the new owner as to its operation and features. Read these instructions carefully: they contain vital information on installation, use and safety.
Levelling your appliance correctly will provide it with stability and avoid any vibrations, noise and shifting during operation. If it is placed on a fitted or loose carpet, adjust the feet in such a way as to allow enough room for ventilation beneath the washing machine.

Unpacking and levelling

Electric and water connections
Connecting the water inlet hose
1. Unpack the washing machine. 2. Check whether the washing machine has been damaged during transport. If this is the case, do not install it and contact your retailer. 3. Remove the four protective screws and the rubber washer with the respective spacer, situated on the rear of the appliance (see figure).
1. Insert seal A into the end of the inlet hose and screw the latter onto a cold water tap with a 3/4 gas threaded mouth (see figure). Before making the connection, allow the water to run freely until it is perfectly clear. 2. Connect the other end of the water inlet hose to the washing machine, screwing it onto the appliance's cold water inlet, situated on the top right-hand side on the rear of the appliance (see figure).
4. Seal the gaps using the plastic plugs provided. 5. Keep all the parts: you will need them again if the washing machine needs to be moved to another location.
Packaging materials are not children's toys.


3. Make sure there are no kinks or bends in the hose.
1. Install the washing machine on a flat sturdy floor, without resting it up against walls, furniture cabinets or other. 2. If the floor is not perfectly level, compensate for any unevenness by tightening or loosening the adjustable front feet (see figure); the angle of inclination, measured according to the worktop, must not exceed 2.
The water pressure at the tap must be within the
values indicated in the Technical details table (on the next page).
If the water inlet hose is not long enough, contact
a specialist store or an authorised serviceman.
Connecting the drain hose
Do not use extensions or multiple sockets.
Connect the drain hose, without bending it, to a draining duct or a wall drain situated between 65 and 100 cm from the floor;
The power supply cable must never be bent or dangerously compressed. The power supply cable must only be replaced by an authorised serviceman.
Warning! The company denies all liability if and when these norms are not respected.

Detergents and laundry

Good washing results also depend on the correct dose of detergent: adding too much detergent won't necessarily make for a more efficient wash, and may in fact cause build up on the interior of your appliance and even pollute the environment. Open up the detergent dispenser and pour in the detergent and fabric softener, as follows.

Special items

Curtains: fold curtains and place them in a pillow case or mesh bag. Wash them separately without exceeding half the appliance load. Use programme 11 which excludes the spin cycle automatically. Quilted coats and windbreakers: if they are padded with goose or duck down, they can be machine-washed. Turn the garments inside out and load a maximum of 2-3 kg, repeating the rinse cycle once or twice and using the delicate spin cycle. Trainers: remove any mud. They can be washed together with jeans and other tough garments, but not with whites. Wool: for best results, use a specific detergent, taking care not to exceed a load of 1 kg.

Woolmark Platinum Care

compartment 1: Detergent for pre-wash (powder) compartment 2: Detergent for the wash cycle (powder or liquid) Liquid detergent should only be poured in immediately prior to the wash cycle start. compartment 3: Additives (fabric softeners, etc.) The fabric softener should not overflow from the grid. As gentle as a hand wash. Ariston sets a new standard of superior performance that has been endorsed by The Woolmark Company with the prestigious Woolmark Platinum Care brand. Look for the Woolmark Platinum Care logo on the washing machine to ensure you can safely and effectively wash wool garments labelled as "hand wash" (M.0303): Set programme 10 for all "Hand wash" garments, using the appropriate detergent.
Do not use hand wash detergent because it may form too much foam.

Preparing your laundry

Divide your laundry according to: - the type of fabric/the symbol on the label. - the colours: separate coloured garments from whites. Empty all pockets and check for loose buttons. Do not exceed the weight limits stated below, which refer to the weight when dry: Sturdy fabrics: max 4,5 kg Synthetic fabrics: max 2.5 kg Delicate fabrics: max 2 kg Wool: max 1 kg

Precautions and advice

The washing machine was designed and built in compliance with the applicable international safety regulations. The following information is provided for your safety and should consequently be read carefully.
the impact on human health and the environment. The crossed out "wheeled bin" symbol on the product reminds you of your obligation, that when you dispose of the appliance it must be separately collected. Consumers should contact their local authority or retailer for information concerning the correct disposal of their old appliance.

General safety

This appliance has been designed for nonprofessional, household use and its functions must not be changed. This washing machine should only be used by adults and in accordance with the instructions provided in this manual. Never touch the washing machine when barefoot or with wet or damp hands or feet. Do not pull on the power supply cable to unplug the appliance from the electricity socket. Pull the plug out yourself. Do not open the detergent dispenser while the appliance is in operation. Do not touch the drain water as it could reach very high temperatures. Never force the washing machine door: this could damage the safety lock mechanism designed to prevent any accidental openings. In the event of a malfunction, do not under any circumstances touch internal parts in order to attempt repairs. Always keep children well away from the appliance while in operation. The appliance door tends to get quite hot during the wash cycle. Should it have to be moved, proceed with the help 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 your laundry into the washing machine, make sure the drum is empty.

Saving energy and respecting the environment
Environmentally-friendly technology If you only see a little water through your appliance door, this is because thanks to the latest Ariston technology, your washing machine only needs less than half the amount of water to get the best results: an objective reached to respect the environment. Saving on detergent, water, energy and time To avoid wasting resources, the washing machine should be used with a full load. A full load instead of two half loads allows you to save up to 50% on energy. The pre-wash cycle is only necessary on extremely soiled garments. Avoiding it will save on detergent, time, water and between 5 and 15% energy. Treating stains with a stain remover or leaving them to soak before washing will cut down the need to wash them at high temperatures. A programme at 60C instead of 90C or one at 40C instead of 60C will save up to 50% on energy. Use the correct quantity of detergent depending on the water hardness, how soiled the garments are and the amount of laundry you have, to avoid wastage and to protect the environment: despite being biodegradable, detergents do contain ingredients that alter the natural balance of the environment. In addition, avoid using fabric softener as much as possible. If you use your washing machine from late in the afternoon until the early hours of the morning, you will help reduce the electricity board's peak load. The Delay Timer option (see page 7) helps to organise your wash cycles accordingly. If your laundry has to be dried in a tumble dryer, select a high spin speed. Having the least water possible in your laundry will save you time and energy in the drying process.
Programmes Detergents Precautions Care


Disposing of the packaging material: observe local regulations, so the packaging can be re-used. The European Directive 2002/96/EC on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment, requires that old household electrical appliances must not be disposed of in the normal unsorted municipal waste stream. Old appliances must be collected separately in order to optimise the recovery and recycling of the materials they contain and reduce

Care and maintenance

Cutting off the water or electricity supply
Turn off the water tap after every wash. This will limit the wear of your appliance's water system and also prevent leaks. Unplug your appliance when cleaning it and during all maintenance operations.

Cleaning the pump

The washing machine is fitted with a self-cleaning pump that does not require any maintenance. Sometimes, small items (such as coins or buttons) may fall into the pre-chamber that protects the pump, situated in the lower part of the same.
Make sure the wash cycle has ended and unplug the appliance.
To access the pre-chamber: 1. using a screwdriver, remove the cover panel on the lower front of the washing machine (see figure);

Cleaning your appliance

The exterior and rubber parts of your appliance can be cleaned with a soft cloth soaked in lukewarm soapy water. Do not use solvents or abrasives.
Cleaning the detergent dispenser
Remove the dispenser by raising it and pulling it out (see figure). Wash it under running water; this operation should be repeated frequently.
2. unscrew the lid rotating it anticlockwise (see figure): a little water may trickle out. This is perfectly normal;
Caring for your appliance door and drum
Always leave the appliance door ajar to prevent unpleasant odours from forming. 3. clean the interior thoroughly; 4. screw the lid back on; 5. 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 water inlet hose at least once a year. If you see any cracks, replace it immediately: during the wash cycles, water pressure is very strong and a cracked hose could easily split open.
Never use hoses that have already been used.
Your washing machine could fail to work. Before calling for Assistance (see page 12), make sure the problem can't easily be solved by consulting the following list.


The washing machine won't start. The wash cycle won't start.
Possible causes/Solution:
The appliance is not plugged into the socket, or not enough to make contact. There has been a power failure. The appliance door is not shut properly (the word DOOR is displayed). button has not been pressed. The The START/RESET button has not been pressed. The water tap is not turned on. A delayed start has been set (using the Delay Timer, see page 7). The water inlet hose is not connected to the tap. The hose is bent. The water tap is not turned on. There is a water shortage. The water pressure is insufficient. The START/RESET button has not been pressed.

The washing machine fails to load water (The wording H2O is displayed).
The washing machine continuously loads and unloads water.
The drain hose is not fitted between 65 and 100 cm from the floor (see page 3). The free end of the hose is underwater (see page 3). The wall drainage system doesn't have a breather pipe. If the problem persists even after these checks, turn off the water tap, switch the appliance off and call for Assistance. If the dwelling is on one of the upper floors of a building, there may be drain trap problems causing the washing machine to load and unload water continuously. In order to avoid such an inconvenience, special anti-drain trap valves are available in shops.

Detergents Precautions

The washing machine does not drain or spin.
The programme does not foresee the draining: some programmes require enabling the draining manually (see page 6). The Easy iron option is enabled: to complete the programme, press the START/RESET button (see page 7). The drain hose is bent (see page 3). The drain duct is clogged. The drum was not unblocked correctly during installation (see page 2). The washing machine is not level (see page 2). The washing machine is closed in between furniture cabinets and the wall (see page 2). The water inlet hose is not screwed on correctly (see page 2). The detergent dispenser is obstructed (to clean it, see page 10). The drain hose is not secured properly (see page 3). The detergent is not suitable for machine washing (it should bear the definition "for washing machines" or "hand and machine wash", or the like). You used too much detergent.
The washing machine vibrates too much during the spin cycle.
The washing machine leaks.

There is too much foam.

Before calling for Assistance: Check whether you can solve the problem on your own (see page 11); Restart the programme to check whether the problem has been solved; If this is not the case, contact an authorised Technical Service Centre on the telephone number provided on the guarantee certificate.
