Ariston LBE12X will not fill

I am having some problems with my Ariston LBE12X. First, it wouldn't drain or spin. I ginally got the filter out (it was jammed) and removed a couple of coins and a bit of plastic. So far, so good. I removed the feeder hose from the drum to the filter andit was fine - nothing in there. WHen I put the machine back and started it, it begand to hum slightly, but nothing else happened. I then tried to advance the program and the dial just kept turning round through all the program elements, but nothing else happened (one of the symptoms from before). Can anyone please give me and advice on what to do next. Thanks

Depends which program you started with if you started with drain or spin then the humming noise you heard is the pump energised but jammed. remove the filter again and check nothing stuck in the pump impellor - bits of bra wire are the favourites if you started with a wash or rinse program, the humming noise is the inlet valve energised but no water coming thro. check water is turned on and hoses not kinked

My ariston stalls during wash & wont do spin cycle. Checked the belt at teh back of the machine and its intact!!??

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

This sounds very much like the belt is slipping. Belts are not expensive- sorry I do not know how much yours would cost- and are easy to be changed by a competent person:-
The motor support bolts should be loosened and the old belt removed. Often putting the new belt on is a bit of a struggle, even with the motor 'loose', because it is new and smaller!
Once on it should be tensioned by pulling the motor against the belt firmly- but not over tight- and the motor support bolts tightened.
If it turns out to be a worn and inefficient motor, it is false economy to just have the brushes changed. Experience of others is that the brushes may only last months unless, that is, the motor is totally refurbished.
Hope this is your problem solved.
Good luck,
John C

Hi my Ariston Margherita LBE12X washing machine is not filling and just making a humming noise. we have checked the pipes and they are not leaking or kinked. Pls can you help?

Have you checked the filter and drain pump for any blockages.If the pump cannot operate properly then it will not let more water into the machine.Also check the filters tn the ends of the hoses are not blocked.

Hope this helps.

That means that the machine detected a problem at a certain point of the cycle and stopped.

If the machine stops when filling check the inlet valve and the water supply.

If it stops because ofervilling check the water level switch.

If it stops when the cycle is hot water only , then check the heating element.

If it stops when draining, then inspect drain filter, drain pump , and drain hose. You access the drain hose removing a panel at the front side of the machine.

If it stops when motor is supposed to spin faster (rinse) then it is motor control unit or motor coupler.

If it is none of the above, then it is a defective control board.

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...


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.

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 !

Fabric softener compartment problem.

Squeee, It's been more than a year since you posted this so I guess you must know the answer. It sounds like a Visit from an engineer(?) I've got exactly the same problem with a Servis Easilogic 1500 and would appreciate knowing what you had to do to resolve the issue.
