Melts clothing and breaks down all the time
We live in an apartment with these washer/dryer combos and they are awful. In the six months, I have lived here I have had three repair people come out for different reasons. We had an issue with our machine not draining and got given a spare machine. This morning I did a load of washing in the spare machine and it burnt all of our clothes. Everything that had plastic fibres in it was burnt, scorched or stretched. I had an olive green pair of hiking pants that were unrecognisable when they came out. I'm surprised the whole machine didn't light ...up. The plastic fixtures inside the machine even melted. Under no circumstances should you waste money one of these machines. It's enough to make me not want to rent an apartment with one in it. They are nothing but headaches.

Great washing machine - USELESS dryer
I’m perfectly satisfied with all the washing functions on this machine. It came with my 2 bed apartment & is ideal for that living situation. As there is limited space - it is installed in the kitchen. I was really excited to see it had a drying function too, as I thought that was clever on space-saving. However, after trying ALL the drying functions - none if them work. The washing comes out hot & damp. I end up with laundry hung all over the apartment on a clothes horse. So there’s no point. I wouldn’t recommend buying one of these for yourself - or putting it in your rental property. It will just drive you/your tenants mad.
An absolute piece of crap!
Our Ariston combo washer dryer has a 2 year warranty. It is now just over 2 years old. It is only used by a 2 person family. Is stopped working so we found a repair person who came and found a fault. Cost $145.
Next day it stopped again, repairman came back replace a switch another $140 bill. Stopped again.
So we called a recommended Ariston repairer who attended and told us that the motherboard has failed plus another couple of issues. The quote was provided-$740. Nil stock, 6 weeks to get the motherboard.
Seriously, a poor quality product wi...

This washing combo was in an apartment I was staying in for 2 nights
Washing function great. 30 minute wash all good.
Dryer function non existent. 4 hours ridiculous and still not dry.
Does not dry
This combo, a washer- dryer is poor on both fronts, when washing, and when drying. In our building, every apartment is serviced with this combo and not even one of us was able to successfully use the dryer function. The clothes are out of the machine warm and dump. pointless.
Best Washing Machine I have ever used. Love it
I bought the Ariston ARMF125 washing machine/dryer. I wash all sorts of clothing from delicates to very soiled clothing. The features and controls are fantastic - choosing which program you want and the temperature - It is just so easy to use. Where you put the washing liquid and fabric softener is a great compartment. It swings out wide so you can easily access it and you can remove it easily for further cleaning. I love the 15 minute cycle and the 30 minute cycle.
The fact that it is a washing machine/dryer is great as it has saved so much space in my new apartment in the laundry. I am really happy with this machine and would recommend it to anyone.

Ariston 8kg Front loader Machine
When we decided to buy another washing machine I really wanted something easy to operate less water with a good star rating. After speaking to the sales lady Kate at Harvey Norman at Lakehaven NSW we where really surprised on the workmanship and the 5 year warranty. I'm really amazed on how clean my cloths are coming out …And happy with no movement and low noise .I've downsized from at 10 kilo to an 8kilo and that was my concern … But my washing amount has not changed and wow my queen size blanket washed amazingly. I'm really Happy with my Ariston Purchase.

Do Not Buy. Worst Machine Ever.
Unfortunately, this is the unit that came with the apartment that we're renting, so we had no choice but to use this. We're the first renters of this unit as the building is new, so we're also the first users. We've been here a little over a year when the first problems came up. Last april, the pump broke already and it took over a month to get it replaced. Arisit, the retailer in australia, has the worst customer service, so not only does the item malfunction easily, you'll also need to deal with rude customer service agents. It is august now,...only a few months after the first issue arose, and the machine decided to stop-mid cycle. It turned off on its own and locked the door. I could not turn the machine back on, and my clothes were still wet inside. I reported the issue immediately to the customer service number, and I was just referred to the repair service number (without asking for details of the issue). The repair service provider just told me to call the customer service again as a new job order needed to be put. The same customer service agent, janet, answered my call and when asked (again) when I purchased it, I said it came with the apartment, and without hearing further details, she said that it is already out of warranty. She said I need to e-mail them with a proof of purchase or proof that the item is still within warranty, then they'll get back to me within 3 business days. Three business days of my clothes inside their stupid machine. Very helpful! Aside from these issues, though, the dryer does not dry out clothes well. Because it uses water, the clothes turn out damp after running a dryer cycle unless you do the full 6-hour one. So, please take my advice and do not purchase this product.

Worst dryer functionality, meaning less..hats off to the scientist who invented dryer function in this combo
It is taking 4h 15 min to dry the clothes, but normally if you place them after wash in normal room temperature, they get automatically dried with the same amount of time. Usually dryer should be able to complete its function less than an hour, since I used many dryers earlier and have quite amount of experience with them. But ariston dryer is taking more than four hours to dry the clothes, which is too much long time than usual. I am confused with this functionality how they have introduced dryer functionality in the washing machine, unnecessa...rily wasting the power bill..this is what I felt. Also noticed quite few times after spending this much time the clothes are not fully dried only around 70 percent is dried. Only god has to understand the meaning of dryer functionality and benefit in this washing machine. Besides that after dryer is completed there are foldings left, which are more difficult to clear them, I am spending almost 15 minutes to clear them by ironing a shirt(I usually spend not more than 3 minutes for a shirt) but still the foldings are clearly visible, clothes get damaged if you spend more time on ironing them. This is totally bad experience for me with this combo, I feel using the dryer is completely waste of time and better to have a separate dryer instead of using it. These kind of customer experiences are not good for a company. Please try to make any alternate arrangement for this, call me for anything you need to know more. Thanks.!

very clean clothes - don’t ever use dryer function
All types of clothes. Cleans EXTREMELY well, even on short cycles (I have a messy toddler). Keeps clothes in fantastic condition. Great variety of cycle times.
If you’re interested in purchasing this but have read the reviews of it being noisy - If you do not level the feet properly it will be extremely noisy and will probably break eventually, just like any other washer. If you live in an apartment with concrete construction (most are) anything will be noisy. Just put a piece of cheap foam insulation underneath or a couple layers of carpet un...

Don't buy one don't use one
I am staying in an apartment that has this machine installed. I washed one towel, one bath mat and one tea towel so the machine was not overloaded. Did separately as I wanted them washd and dried. They came out covered in brown stains. I need a new washing machine at home so I won't be buying this brand.

Great family addition
We wash a family of fours washing regularly, work clothes, uniforms, delicates, blankets and sheets.
I can find a setting for most of my needs, the sanitary setting is amazing. My favourite is the 30 min wash- and it actually is 30 mins.
It manages to wash all delicates with care and come out beautiful.
Worst combo ever
As a washing machine it is great.the dryer is shocking.nothing ever
Dries.we got this combo as a replacement to our washer that had corroded in a short period of time to save space and it was a waste of money.i want a dryer that dries completely not one that pumps water into it and leaves them steaming and wet.its ridiculous.will have to buy a single drier to sit on top again.
Staying in accommodation that has this machine it’s a joke won’t dry clothes properly at all.
What a stupid machine waste of everybody’s time to be an all in one washer/dryer is not drying clothes at all. When you press dry you expect dry... please don’t bother as I have wasted most of my precious holidays trying to dry our clothes & it doesn’t work!
Buy a dryer & a washing machine does it 90% faster than this.
Questions & Answers
What does the H 20 means when it’s flashing
Please contact our Technical Department on 1300 762 219 for assistance with determining what this issue is.
I have an ARMF125 washer/dryer combo but I receive an F13 error code when trying to wash clothes. Water begins to pump in but then as it begins the washing cycle about a minute or two in the machine stops and F13 flashes. I have read that this is to do with the drying of clothes but I have barely used it for this and it is coming up when I am trying to use the wash cycle NOT the dry cycle
Please contact our Technical Department on 1300 762 219 for information on the F13 error code. They may be able to provide a solution over the phone, if not they can arrange for a tech to come out on a Service call.
How do I dry my clothes after a wash ARMI 125
Hi Yosh S,
Turn the control knob to either 11, 12, or 13 for the drying cycles, and then press the Drying button to change the time of the cycle to whatever you need. For more information, check the user manual for this washer-dryer.
