My Ariston Margherita cde12x stops half cycle (approx 30mins) and the dial on right starts ticking noise . What can i do please?

Basically, it's an electrical problem. You need to unplug the machine and open up the back of the machine, and unplug all the connectors that are connected to the circuit board. Plug the machine back in and turn the machine on for 2 min. then power off and unplug it and reconnect all the connectors back to the circuit board and it should work.

Smelly water & not going into spin

Try cleaning out the pump access port. It is at the front of the machine.

All sorts of stuff gets into these pumps on front loaders. A partial clog will go what you describe.

If you use a mesh laundry bag it will keep this from happening

The washing smells of dirty water, have tried all sorts, but cannot get rid of the smell.

Several things to try:

Check the empty pump filter, that may be clogged with smelly debris
Ensure that the empty pipe is correctly inserted into the drain pipe and that there is a trap on the drain that stops smells coming back
Finally (This may sound odd) with no clothing in the machine, throw 3 dishwasher tablets in the drum and run it through the hottest cycle the machine can run. Smells can often be bacterial caused by biological washing powder which builds up bugs in the machine. Dishwasher tablets are anti-bacterial and will kill the bugs.

Smelly Water Draining

Try getting the new whirlpool affresh washer tablets. They clean the mold and are supposed to make everything in the washer smell better and keep it clean. They are only around 10 bucks and is worth a shot to clean your smelly drain.

Kenmore front load HE washer odor

How old is your machine? Mine is 5 years old, and I just started to get a "sewage" smell in my laundry room this weekend. I disconnected the water return to the sewer line and discovered lots of gunk in the hose, and the connector to the machine was completely dark green. I'm going to replace the hose, and trying to figure out if there is some sort of filter.

We only use He detergents too, so I guess this is something that just happens over time.

I cant get the filter out of my washing machine help please

you probably have something like a bra wire jammed in there. no option but to pull real hard with a pair of pliers.
smell is not caused by filter. often smell is due to using liquid detergent. after you have done filter, put on the hottest wash and change to powder detergent

Sometimes a bigger object might block the filter knob, and make it impossible to screw out. Then the only way is to remove the end of the sump hose attached to the filter and remove the stuck object.
(In my filter this object was an Umbraco key) :-)
