Splendide Washer Winterization

I love this forum!!!!!
I can't seem to find winterization instructions for my "stand alone" Ariston/Splendide washer model: ARWF129W. I can only find instructions on the Splendide site for the combo unit. Should I assume the instructions are the same for the stand alone? Anyone have the same unit and has successfully winterized? Getting some nights in the 40's/30's in spots in New England already!!!

We take our unit South when cold weather starts, but we do winterize our S&B. For that washer I pour in about a gallon of the pink stuff, run on a spin drain cycle till almost empty then shut it off. Just need to get the water out of the pump and pink stuff it and into the drain line.

I would think the procedure would be the same for both units. As long as you run antifreeze thru both the hot and cold water lines until you see antifreeze in the washer from both, and drain it so that the antifreeze goes into the drain trap, then it should be good to go.

OOPs, forgot to mention in my response that prior to adding the pink stuff to the washer, I had already blown all the water out of the lines, both hot and cold and had run the machine to pump that water out first.

If you have good reliable power, put a couple of 60 watt bulbs in the washer, been doing that for 10 years, works fine, and no messing with the "pink stuff."

I'd recommend the pink stuff. Ice brings the power line down and you'll be replacing the pump because it's the pump housing that breaks.
