I have an Ariston Margherita AL128 and the same problem happened. After skimming through the manual, it occurred to me that it could be the pump that's causing not to drain or spin anymore. Dislodge the white covering infront (just located at the bottom). Once opened, unscrew the black button at the right hand side. Once open, check for blockages like coins, loose items, even lint. This worked for me and saved me $$$!!!! Now my Ariston is back to its superb performance. Do read the manual once in a while, it does help! I lost mine but was able to download a copy from the net.

Washed any coins lately? I had a front loading washer and when mine did that it was still under warranty so the service came out and pulled a quarter out of the drain trap. If you not sure where that is contact me
these machines will do this if the timer dial has been moved during a cycle, they have a memory chip on the main circuit board.
they also do this if the machine has a fault with the exception that they dont stop, the doorlock light flashes and the timer just keeps clicking.
try setting the timer to a dot on the settings then switching the power on, the doorlock light will flash a few times, turn off again select program then switch back on, machine should now be reset and work ok, if not then count the flashes of the doorlock light as this indicates a fault code.
hope this helps

this can be more than one fault but try the following: take top off. find the pressure stat - this is usually a round device with usually 6 elec connections or so and a small diameter hose going to it. unclip the hose and blow hard to clearv any blockage. also check hose for any split. leave this hose off and connect another hose of same diameter. start machine so it fills and pressurise the hose by mouth. you should hear a click and the water stops coming in. if none of this works, then there may be a fault with the main module
Please fill your washer with a very small amount of water, turn it to spin and tilt it back. You should be able to see the belt on the bottom turning your pump. I ask you to verify this because imporper belt tension or a bad thrust bearing can keep it from turning improperly. If it turns freely on this test, Then you have something plugged up. Drain the water out. Next unhook the hose that goes between the tub and the pump at the tub side. You can get sock or other small articals of clothing in there that will prevent draining. If that is clear. It is likely you have had another coin go through your hose that goes between the pump and the wall. They can get quite a ways in there and maytag hoses get smaller right before they end. If you have a coin in this area you will need to work it all of the way back to the pump side of the hose.
this clicking of the timer tells you there is a fault somewhere, this could be anything, you have to check things
i would do them in this order
check the heater element, most common fault
second the pump but you said that works
then check the motor that drives the drum belt
look at the motor control board for any signs of burning etc, this could indicate a motor fault
you have not given much info, but with a fault like this thats all you can say, i have given you a brief starting point what and where to look, so happy hunting
if i can be of further help get back to me
