As of March 2015, Ariston washer and dryer combination models measure 33 1/2 inches high, 23 2/5 inches wide and 22 4/5 inches deep. Partnering with Summit Appliance, the Italian firm Ariston designs front-loading washer and dryer combinations to fit in small spaces and under counter tops.
The Ariston laundry combination machines require non-vented installations, making them popular with apartment-dwellers and RV owners. A 15-pound washing capacity, an 11-pound drying capacity and an estimated 115 kilowatt per hour annual electricity consumption provide energy savings. A 1,200 RPM spinning speed and a tri-phase motor ensure quiet and efficient operation.
By combining washer and dryer functions in one machine, Ariston eliminates the need to transfer laundry from the washer to the dryer. Delaying clothes transfer to separate machines, or delaying drying in all-in-one machines, causes clothing to mildew. Artisan overcomes that design flaw by proceeding directly to the drying cycle after washing completes.
The Ariston Elegance all-in-one units offer 10 cycles, a combination of dials and digital read-outs for load status, variable spin cycles and a delayed start option. Overflow and anti-foam protections prevent damage to the equipment and danger to its users. These products incorporate advanced safety features, including child locks.
