Ariston Washer

Ran water in our new washer and it won't spin out or drain the water. Anyone know how to get the water out. New machine never used before.

Were the packing bolts in the back removed that hold the drum in place for shipment?

That wouldn't impact the draining though.

Sounds like your pump isn't running, do you hear it? Its about the only thing you can hear while its running.

On mine they were 2 lag bolts about 4 inches long that held the drum, but had tags all over it telling you to remove them. Sounds like you might have something else going on if the pump isn't running.

Forgive me if this has already been asked. I understand the differences in load size from standard home-washer/dryers. Do the Ariston's CLEAN the clothes? What about drying time on the dryer since is only 110v. Is it extremely long? I find myself wondering about this a lot and I just decided to go ahead and ask the wise ones :-) Thanks! Sure am getting excited to hear ANYTHING from the dealer on our new 38RL. Still nothing.

Our Aristions (I keep saying "our" because they are 10 years old now and may be different than the new ones) are HE type, so they use little water yet yield a great clean with HE detergent. I never had any complaints, although I do with our home HE equipment.

The Dryer is large enough to accept two washer loads most of the time.

I can wash a full king set of sheets in one load, or a set of 2 full bath sheets and wash cloths and hand towels in one load. Another example would be about 5-6 beach towels.

The dryer does take a while - it has a high and low setting and we have never used low The secret is to spin dry the stuff in the washer at the full speed (1200 or 2400 RPM, I can't remember) and they come out almost fully dry, yet I never have issues with wrinkles. For a full load of towels or sheets, it can take 1-1/2 hours. For regular clothes, about 40 minutes. If the clothes are still damp in the dryer when the next washer load is done, I throw the additional wash load in the dryer with the existing to free up the washer and keep rolling.

The auto cycle on the dryer is fine with clothes, but for heavy loads it typically quits too early, so I use timed dry.

And no - this ain't Dory talking She assigned me to the wash.

Wow that is VERY helpful thanks AA! If ours are like that then I can certainly live with it. I know there will be a lot of adaptations we will be making from what we are used to. After 20 years of very active RVing, we feel like there won't be anything TOO shocking, but I find myself thinking a lot about the laundry and the SHOWER WATER PRESSURE!! LOL!

hahaha - Our shower is a little on the low pressure side, but I don't mind it because my daughter will drain the tank otherwise! With this huge fresh water supply, we have opened up a whole new set of campgrounds to explore that we ignored before because they were only electric.
