Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Ariston A1636 washing machine went bang!

Plumbed in my son's washing machine which had been idle for months after a house move. I switched it on and the door light was flashing. I then then pressed the the reset button and it went bang! What could have caused it and which component is likely to be at fault? Any advice would be appreciated.

You will probably need to look inside it underneath and under the top cover and see if there are any tell tale scorch marks.
wires can sometimes rub off their insulation and may be shorting, but untill you look there's not much we can tell you.

Hi my ariston a1636 doesnt seem to pump water out it is now full to the brim and wont open the last two or three washes water came seeping out the draw is there a blockage in my pump


Could be but think more of an overfill fault cased by a blockage @ the pressure switch this controls the level of water in the drum shutting off fill valves. The pressure switch or air switch operates at 3 psi it is round with wiring onto it and has a tube connected to it ....make sure the Tube and chamber tat feeds this is clear as this is common to fail the valve and result in overfill,Apart from a faulty fill valve of course, this should cut off when power is removed.....good luck

Washing machine was making a loud banging/tapping niose when the drum was spinning. It doesn't sound too good when turned manually. Is it the bearings and are they easy to fix?


banging may happen due to low load also, as cloths form a ball shape at one place.
otherwise it might be bearing or bearing housing. bearings are very difficult to replace as whole drum need to open. if bearing housing got loose in drum then drum needs replacement, also very costly.

Plug off the wall. Open up behind the machine. Check to see if any wires loose. See that the wires from the control panel to the motor are plugged in tight. Vibration from the machine could loosen the wires and give the display wrong readings, or disrupt the run.
