Question about Ariston Technologies Ariston AWD12 Front Load Washer/Dryer

3 Answers

I have an Ariston Magherita 2000 it stops and the dial keeps going around when it gets to the spin. If I then put it back on spin it will not drain the water out. If I empty the machine and then put a couple of clothes back in and then put it on spin it will spin the clothes. Also the dryer does not work

    I have the same problem but had to clear it everytime I turns it on and apart from the first time no blockages were found, and now even that doesn't seem to work... It starts clicking away at the beginning rather than spin cycle though... W Wong

    I have the same problem as crazygirl8, but on any cycle. Cleaned up the filter, found 2 coins, but problem persists.

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.

Yo!

unplug machine from power.

pull the front panel off of the machine its at the bottom, kind of snaps off bottom first then top eases out, anyway becareful as it is pretty fragile plastic.

On right hand side unscrew filter cap - prepare for lots of water that really stinks to pour out. Cap can be a fiddle but does release after unscrewing anti clock wise.

Put fingers in and clear out any blockages you can see, mine was a 1 pence peice and a hair tie. Put back together and it should be ok.

I had this problem each year on the Ariston ALD12 and the service man comes out to replace the EPROM unit or more commonly known as the PCB (Programmable Control Board). Essentially it is an electical fault with the unit and the PCB needs replcaement. Cost is about £80 for the PCB plus installation. It can't be done on your own as the PCB needs to be programmed by the service man on install.

Ariston A1635 Margherita Control knob spinning


According to the instruction book - it appears the machine has been stopped mid cycle then re-started.
Switch machine off, turn control knob to a solid circle symbol (they are after every set cycle). Switch machine back on and lights will flash and program is reset. You can then select wash cycle as normal.

Dial keeps spinning


I have an Ariston Margherita AL128 and the same problem happened. The dial keeps on turning and the operation does not finish at all. 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).

Ariston frontloader - dial spinning around and won't start a cycle


Your bearings are almost certainly gone which would explain the noise not an easy job or cheap . Normally it would consist of a tub change or at best a bearing hub . As for the clicking round of the selector Iwould suggest poss the heater or brush fault. As ofr price you'd have to ask your local repair man. Worst case sinario approx £200 .00

Whirlpool filling and washing, not draining, rinsing or spinning


Check out your outlet filter, probable it is clogged. Clean this out and refit. Most cases when the drain or spin does not work, it is the filter. This is a suggestion.

Dial clicks round


Open the rear panel and look for a broken or worn belt. If this is the problem you can replace it easily. Good luck !
