Ariston RSF 82 B Aus Washing Machine

After owning and using the RSF 82 B Aus Washing Machine for the last 4 months we could not be happier.
The units exceptional build quality, ease of use and economical water usage given that we live on a rural property which is solely reliant on tank water is fantastic and we would highly recommend both the brand and this model to any prospective buyers.

We are very pleased with our new machine. We have used the machine frequently and enjoy its quiet hum, quick washes and efficiency. Everything goes into it! Thanks for a great service.
Washing daily clothes, towels, sheets, dog stuff and whatever is necessary. Great cycle options. We love the quick wash for efficiency and use it even at night and it is quiet.

Good purchase

First time user of a front loader and this machine has impressed. Not knowing much about front loaders, I was drawn to the 5 year warranty. This machine is simple to use, quiet when running and looks like it doesn't use much water compared to my top loader. So far very impressed.

I love Ariston appliances!

Totally impressed with the quietest operation of this machine. Having a cycle just for ultra delicates is brilliant. This is my 3rd Ariston appliance, it is a brand I can trust & with a standard 5 year warranty on my washing machine...happy with this purchase.

36 day old washing machine

published

Washing machine flooded house no evidence of anything being stuck in machine to have the assessor come and tell me it did and had have something in it which caused the gasket to twist and come unsealed. Spoke to ariston and they accused me of admitting there was a sock stuck in it then the next day accusing me of over filling it. I am disgusted at the customer service especially after such a major failure which caused my house to flood. $850.00 down the drain because the seals(gaskets) are not under warranty and they reminded me of that many times. This has been very upsetting and traumatic for me and family

So Good, So quiet

published

I brought this machine for my elderly mum a month ago and so far its so good. After having a top loader all her life, she finds it so easy to use and is able to take out the clothes out with ease. At the moment she is using only one cycle, which is quick and efficient, not to mention so quiet. Very happy with purchase.
Love the 5 year warranty. Hopefully we will never have to use it.

So simple to use

published

This machine is so easy to use.
Each setting shows the temperature and then the duration of the wash makes for lighter work, we are all so time poor so this is a great benefit. I am also happy and feel safe that there is a 5 year warranty-- i don't mind paying more for a better and longer warranty period. I also like the setting that can delay the wash- again for great time management

Ariston makers of great washing machines! Very satisfied with my purchase

published

I am very happy with my new Ariston washing machine purchased. This machine comes with a 5 year warranty and a larger door opening which is better then most of its competitors on the market. It is quiet and easy to use, can open the door immediately if you forget an item in the wash cycle (so handy), also washes my clothes better as they come out cleaner with less pre-washing effort and i include all delicate items in my washing cycles and am very satisfied with how it washes them delicately. It has 2 quick wash cycles 30 and a 60 min. The only setting that it does not have that i miss is a 15 min wash cycle like my previous Ariston. Overall very satisfied with my purchase.

Washing our every day clothes has been amazingly simplified. This machine has so many choices of cycles, including a quick cycle and a gentle cycle for my delicates. Just love it! Wished I'd have purchased an Ariston sooner. And, did I mention how quietly it runs!

Immensely Satisfied

published

I bought this washing machine on the recommendation of the Harvey Norman Salesman in May, 2020. So far, I have been very impressed with it. The time it allows you to wash your clothes is fantastic because if you're time poor, the 30 minute wash time is sufficient and your clothes come out squeaky clean regardless. If the clothes require further cleaning I wash for an hour and it does the job. It is quiet, you barely know that it's on. This is my 3rd washing machine in 15 years and it was the cheapest and has so far worked the best. Although, I haven't had it for long, at this point I wouldn't hesitate buying another Ariston when this one is on it's last legs.

Love my new Ariston

published

I just replaced my Ariston washing machine with the RSF82BAUS. I loved my original Ariston and was hoping to buy the same model but it has been superseded. I was nervous buying another Ariston after reading a few reviews but am so glad I went with my gut feeling. The day I got it I did 6 loads of washing as we are a family of 6. I could not recommend this machine high enough. I love it. It has a great choice of washing cycles and I can stop it mid wash if needed. On top of this it is so quite I had to keep checking it was on.

Hi,
I have just inherited this 1 year old machine. I am quite impressed after always having top loaders, with one BIG exception. What on earth does it do to towels? Mine come out hard and scratchy no matter what I do. I refuse to use fabric softener as I have never needed to before. Any clues?
Thanks

5 answers
Ariston
Anthony F.Ariston

Hi Traci,
You don't need to use fabric softener, as this could make the towels worse. The detergent is sticking to the towels and not washing out properly so it is best to add a cup of vinegar (with a bit of ammonia) to the fabric softener compartment, and then put in your detergent as normal. The ammonia will make sure that the detergent won't stick to the fabric, and the vinegar will make sure the minerals and other chemicals won't stick to the towels. The towels should come out softer and fluffier.
Regards

Thanks. So did a load of towels yesteday. Used a litle less detergent than the recommended dose, added vinegar (no ammonia as I wouldnt be impressed if I had to add 2 different things when my top loader does the job with just detergent). To give the towels their best chance of coming out soft, I washed at 30 degrees and reduced the spin down to 600rpm (even though my top loader spins at 950rpm). I gave each towel a good shake before hanging on the line and also hung them in full shade as I know the sun can make them stiff). The result? Well as I type this, they have all been spritzed with a little water and are in the dryer in an ettempt to soften them up. Some of them felt like they could almost stand up by themselves.
I would like to keep this machine, but as I wash towels a lot (pool, beach etc), and dont really want to be using the dryer every time, it looks like I will have to pass this along to someone that doesnt mind scratchy stiff towels, unless there are any other suggestions.

Update - i had a few towels that had just been used once for the pool. This was my chance to see if my laundry liquid might be the problem. I put them on a warm fast 30 wash with just vinegar, and reduced the spin speed right down to 400. The result was the same - scratchy towels.
My conclusion is that this machine can’t wash towels and have them come out soft. It’s not my towels as I have since washed the same ones in my top loader and they are back to soft again, with just laundry liquid.
Unless someone from Ariston can suggest something that works, i would say that i am glad I didn’t pay for this machine and I wouldn’t recommend anyone does unless they like really stiff, scratchy towels.

Hi Denise,
You're right, I couldn't find that info on the specs either: https://www.harveynorman.com.au/ariston-8kg-front-load-washing-machine.html
Hubby assures me it's under 100kg. At a guess it's probably around 50-60kg.

Ariston
Anthony F.Ariston

Hi Denise,
Our specs say this washer weighs 74kg, so a stand that holds 100kg should be fine.

Anthony F.Ariston

Hi Lee,
It is difficult to tell if there is an issue with the machine without seeing it. It would be best to give Arisit Technical Support a call on 1300 762 219 to see if they can recommend a fix or if they think they should send someone out to have a look.
