Question about Ariston Technologies AWD120 13 lb. Washer / Dryer Combo

Open Question

Where is the lint filter on Ariston AWD 120?

My washer/dryer unit no longer dries my clothes. I wasn't sure if this might be related to the heating element or the fact that I have never cleaned out the lint filter. Nowhere in the instructions does it indicate there is even a filter.

SOURCE: Ariston AWD 120 Door Handle is Loose

unplug it.
open the top lid.
reach down inside and feel a plastic sensor/release behind where the latch is.
towards the left center of that sensor, feel for a metallic manual release (you'll just feel the nub of it).
Push this in and to the side to manually release the door lock.
Call Ariston and complain about this common problem.

SOURCE: Hi, Where can I find the repair manual for ARISTON

It is not normal practice for you to obtain a repair manual for these washers, as they are generally only available to the engineers working for the company.
Best thing to do is to try and obtain the information you require through sights such as this one, there are others on the net .

Takes longer to dry clothes


Most of the time when your dryer is taking longer and longer to dry the clothes it is due to a clogged dryer vent. Just take the vent off and clean it. If the dryer cannot vent it cannot circulate the air inside the dryer

Dryer was running longer than we thought it should. Now timer will not move and it does not dry the clothes. Could this be a switch problem or a heating element problem


Check your vent outside of your home or apartment. If you are not feeling anything heat or air, then it is clogged. Clean the vent and it should be alright. If you had on the sensor dry that could be the reason why your timer wasn't moving.

Dryer takes a long time to dry


there is no truth to the fact that dryer elements start to burn out there fore it takes longer to dry cloths the only reason a dryer will take longer to dry cloths is due to lint build up within the unit take the back off and vacume all the old lint out and around the heating element and it will work like new

Our Kenmore HE2 dryer seems to be taking a very long time to dry clothes (120 minutes on Medium High to dry towels/jeans) . It is producing heat, but it also seems to be producing water/steam. The filter...


you need to clean out the vent line and the dryer.unplug the dryer,pull out the filter,remove the bottom panel and then remove the duct that the lint filter slides into and clean it out,vac out the inside of the dryer,if you have a shop vac you can blow all the lint from the back and then vac it up,make sure you blow off the motor,alot of lint gets built up around and inside it,pull out the dryer and pull off the vent line,if it's a long run i use a leaf blower to blow out the vent line,first go outside and make sure the vent is clear so when you blow out the vent line nothing is blocking the lint from coming out.this will take care of your problem,do this once a year and your dryer will last longer,you'll need less parts changed out over the years because the dryer won't over heat,you'll save on electricity,your clothes willl dry on time and most of all you won't have any fires

Neptune glass front takes 4 hours to dry clothes.


make sure the vent system is clean. any restrictions can cause the safety switches to activate and turn off heaters. When it cools, the switch resets and starts heating. Unit will continue to cycle the heat off and on. Make sure all elements are working.
Start there.

If you are experiencing longer dry times and poor drying efficiency, the following link can give you some things to check before assuming you have a malfunction with the dryer:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3578821-dryer_takes_too_long_to_dry

The number one cause of dryer heat related problems is poor exhaust ventilation. If the dryer can't breathe it will not dry efficiently and will cause the heating circuits to overheat to the point of failure. The dryer will actually seem hotter as the heating circuits begin to overheat. This can also become a fire hazard if not resolved. Read through the link provided and review some of the potential causes. Hopefully, this may save you a service call.

If you still have problems, please post back and let me know and I can tell you how to troubleshoot your heating circuits and/or assist you with identifying parts. Since your dryer IS heating (but poorly), I don't think you need parts. Just a good cleaning. I hope this helps you.

Amana les60aw gets hot in dryer but clothes wont dry. cleaned out vent, shortend exhaust hose. noticed an orange glow coming from back vents when i turned it back on???


The orange glow is the heating element working. It mush have good air flow or the coil will burn out and stop heating. Also the thermal limit will stop the heat if to great. If you went all through the vent and the tubing is not smashed or flat check the outside vent for air circulation, if good try to dry a load of clothes. Are you sure your washer is spinning out well? Wet clothes take longer to dry.

Lint problem


You must GRARANTEE full and free ari flow outside of the building. Typically this type of complaint is related to restricted air flow outside of the machine...normally there is lots of lint, and it exits through the filter, but when flow is restricted, lint remains inside.
