No, but it depends on in part on what cycle you selected. Did you happen to choose one with an extra rinse cycle?

I have an ariston awd 121 front loader washer dryer. What kind of soap does it call for? Can it be the powder? Does it have to be liquid? Does it have to be a certain brand/type?


To my knowledge all front loading washers require low sudsing high efficiency (he) detergent and these only come in liquid. A powdered detergent could probably be used, but I'd try a 1/4 of the recommended amount for a normal load first. Also it is not recommended. Regular liquid detergent can also probably be used but i'd start with 1/2 the the amount for a normal load. If you don't use the recommended "he detergents" expect occasional oversudsing problems and possibly even early drain pump death. Hope this helps.
Here is the owner's manual for your machine:

Tip

New detergent Sheets are NOT a good idea for front load washers


In the last week i have went to many customers home to remove detergent sheets from washing machine pumps on front load washers.

Purex® Complete 3-in-1™ Laundry Sheets are now on my "DONT USE THIS PRODUCT LIST." As an appliance repairman, i have made lots of money removing these sheets from the drain pumps on front load washing machines. I was at one of those jobs today and the customer watched me pull 14 of these sheets out of the pump and up into the hose that leads to the pump. I tested the machine and it then worked fine.

About 1 hour later, the customer called me and was furious because as she was doing a load a laundry and the water would no drain out again. I went right back to her home and once again i found more of those sheets inside her pump, 5 to be precise. About an hour later, i was done doing a complete clean out of her washer to make sure this didnt happen again.

She will no longer use Purex® Complete 3-in-1™ Laundry Sheets per my recommendation.

The sheets were designed to keep you from wasting money on using too much soap with the added ease of it also being a fabric softner sheet. Dont be lazy and dont use these sheets in a front loader of any brand.

The problem is that small articles of clothing like baby socks, and these sheets, make it thru the front seal and make its way between the tubs and on to the pump. This does not seem to be a problem with top loading washers yet, but we will find out in the near future.

Stinky clothes


you should run a empty load with bleach but no detergent every month or so to clean the washer, I also recommend cleaning the boot (door gasket) every couple of loads with windex or other cleaner. also every load check inside the bottom of the boot and make sure the drain holes (x3) are clear of lint, etc. this is normal maintenance for any front loader. GE is a very good brand and is my preferred brand, I repair appliances everyday, Whirlpool keeps me busy. I have GE front loaders in my house.
2nd poster, you will need a door hinge for this most likely. Not too hard.

I am having the same problem w/ our brand new front loader washer, it pauses constantly, and even when I can get the load to finish, I have to drain and spin atleast 3 x before I can even attempt to put in dryer, at this point it is taking me hours to do one load of laundry!!
