if the machine is full of water pump blocked or broken if machine empty needs new door interlock or pressure switch blocked or broken
FIRST switch off and unplug.
Pull machine out and remove lid by undoing self tapping screws at the top back. May have to slide lid back a bit to lift off.
Internal catch mechanism will be reachable from top for manual release. You may need someone to push door inwards while you release catch.

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.

NOTE. PLEASE UN-PLUG THE UNIT FROM THE ELECTRICITY SUPPLY BEFORE ATTEMPTING THE FOLLOWING JUST TO BE SAFE:-
Problem may be due to a blocked dispenser hole. Completely remove the dispenser unit and check for blockages in the hole where the water goes in. If you cant see anything immediate, take the top off. (Remove the 2 self tapping screws on the back holding the top on). Looking at the unit from the front. look inside where you took the top off and locate the rubber hose that connects the dispenser unit to the drum (it's a tight space, but if you look inside , front left you will see where the hose connects to the drum). Remove the hose and check for blockages. (The hose just pushes into the drum). Let me know. I had a similar problem and found that somebody had shoved a sock and pair of knickers down the water dispenser hole. This was also causing the machine to make a loud noise when spinning. Have you also checked the filter in the bottom right hand corner of the unit ? You have to remove the kick panel to get access to it.

I have just typed in 'Ariston washer manuals' into Google and it has returned many sources. It should be possible for you to find one there.
Fixya tends to give instructions and guidance from people like me (retired Englishman in SW France @ 14:16 Sat afternoon) rather than the direct supply of manuals.
