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 .

It sounds like the heating element is partially burned out. If the element is partially burned out, the dryer still heats, but at such a low temperature that it takes three or four times as long to dry the clothes. If the element is partially burned out, replace it. Make sure all duct work is clean.
Although it is not a common problem, the cycling thermostat could be bad, one of the thermostats that controls the heat in the dryer may break and cause the dryer to heat poorly. The thermostat is usually a small, round, black device that is mounted to an oblong steel plate. The plate is mounted to the internal duct work with two screws. Hope this helped. Good luck.

Asko Washer/Dryer (WCAM 1812); Dryer not working.


Update: The dry cycle is now working! Apparently the automatic overload/shut off on the heating element got tripped. We had a technician out this morning. He unplugged the machine, removed the top of the unit, and simply pushed a little red/orange button that was on top of the heating element. When we plugged it back in the heating element worked again. The technician was able to troubleshoot this by checking the amps while running the dry cycle. But the proof was really when we did a load and the machine heated up (just like it used to) during the dry cycle. This was actually a relatively simply fix - though could be dangerous as you have to open up the electrical area. The reset button is rather inconspicuous and located on top of the heating element, which is long (runs front to back in the center part of the top of the machine - which you can get to by removing the lid/top outer housing) and silver - wrapped in insulation. It's pretty obvious. The button is in a little metal fixture on top of the heating element. The technician told us that the rest can get tripped when the unit overheats. (We think this happened when the laundry tub overfilled and the hose was totally submerged - the machine was working overtime to pump out the water.) The technician also warned that this can happen if the machine gets turned off suddenly mid-cycle - especially during the drying cycle. He said that the heating element gets so hot, it needs to have a gentle cool down period, which is marked on the dryer dial for the last 20 minutes of the cycle. I hope this helps others!

Hi I am trying to clean my drain unsder my washer. I do not know how to pull the cover off.?? It appears I need special alan wrenchs for two little screws..?? any ideas??


Though the idea of repairing a clothes dryer can be pretty intimidating, the truth is that some types of repairs are surprisingly easy. Yes, dryers appear to be built like huge, impervious metal boxes, but they are typically pretty easy to open and relatively simple to fix.


As shown at How Clothes Dryers Works, a clothes dryer has a motor that turns a big drum containing the clothes, a heat source for blowing warm air into the drum to dry the clothes, and controls for operating the motor and heat source.
Some dryers have an electric element to do the heating while others utilize a gas flame; the latter must be vented.
Clothes dryer problems generally occur because the heat source doesn't heat properly or the motor fails to turn the drum.
If a gas dryer doesn't dry properly, the first thing to check is the pilot light or igniter--it may not be lighting the burner. The second thing to check is the dryer's vent-if it is clogged with lint, the heating system won't work properly.

Pay attention to basic safety measures when working on a dryer. Always unplug the dryer, and turn off the gas supply to a gas dryer at the appliance shutoff valve.
As with most appliances, maintenance will keep your dryer purring. Clean the lint trap after every load, and clean the vent system once a year.

Dryer sometimes works other times doesn't


Check and make sure there is not lint build-up in the venting hose leading to outside. This will cause longer drying times and can be a fire hazard. Also, if you use the Aluminum venting hose instead of the white plastic it can cut up to 30 min. off your drying time. It is a lot safer then the white venting hose which can also be a fire hazard. Make sure all the lint is cleaned out from the inside of the dryer where the venting hose is connected. It could be a clog there. This sounds more like the problem since the clothes are actually drying but it could be a partially burnt out heating element. Good Luck.
