ARISTON AWD 121 NA doesnt tumbledry clothes


This combined washer/dryer only washes the clothes, but when the dryer function is supposed to begin, it just stops and starts making clicking noises-like its trying to move on to the next program, but isnt able to. I just have to stop it and take out the clothes which are then VERY wet.

Hope you can help.

Thank you.

    I have had the same problem. The repairman has changed the thermostat in the unit, which has allowed the unit to dry clothes, but it has broken 3 times. I want to be rid of this device.

i would never suggest working or attempting to work on a machine covered by guarantee but this sounds like there is a fault with the heat cycle, obviously the machine keeps tumbling until the heat reaches the right temperature, with a heat fault it will not advance, to test without removing screws etc, press any heat option button like economy or turn heat dial to no heat etc, see what happens next. hope i have helped, if so rate me please, please note most engineers know if a machine of that age has been worked on and this will void any guarantee

The issue is either with the thermal fuse of the unit that is bad or the motor that has gone bad. To check what is causing this, first check the fuse which is located inside the rear panel to the exhaust duct and try to jump start the thermal fuse or test its continuity with a voltmeter, no continuity means bad fuse. If the fuse is okay then replace the motor as that part usually makes a hum sound when it is unable to run. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Rinse cycle

If the machine has a soak cycle, you can use that. If it does not, you can have it fill on a cold rinse, and then stop it for a soak. Restart it on a hot wash with a cold rinse. Tumble dry low.
