Question about Ariston Technologies Dishwashers
The program light on the left is always on even if I don't press the program button but the dishwasher doesn't start. A few days ago there was water left on the lower tray and there has been a short circuit. What can I do?
SOURCE: My dishwasher doesnt start
1) Ensure the dishwasher is turned off. 2) (may not apply) Turn the plastic blue lever located under the sink to the vertical position (this opens the valve, so water can go into the dishwasher) 3) Pour powder indo the dishwasher 4) Turn the dishwasher controller to the top position (the 12 o?clock position) ? this is the eco-setting. 5) Press the on/power button on the dishwasher, so that it now turned on (a light will display) 6) Move the dishwasher controller to the ?R? position (it?s on the very left), and leave it there a second or two. 7) Move the dishwasher controller back to the eco-setting (the 12 o?clock position

Hello, Welcome to FixYa.
There likely is a blockage in the filter/screen and chopper assembly below in the sump well, it's just not obvious/visible. The place to look for a remedy is the wash pump area, you`ll need to follow these steps to clean it.
1 ) Remove the turbo wash tube if applicable to your model, it pulls off, i.e.
2 ) Spray arm removal. hold the center nut and spin the arm.
3 ) Now you can remove the upper spray arm supply tub or referred to sometimes as "rear feed cap".
a ) lift to depress the rear tab, i.e.
b ) Then twist the feeder to the right ( clockwise ), i.e.
4 ) Now you can remove the center nut...
Then remove the four # 20 torx head screws holding the filter in place, and lift the filter out.
Below the filter you`ll find food debris, undissolved detergent etc, but also a cover with a single #10 torx head screw to remove and the cover will pull straight up and out. the arrows from left to right in the image indicate...
1) screw location
2) tab to pull up on
3) the latch you may need to twist to the left to remove the cover
Now you should see the chopper and screen assembly, it too can be clogged up pretty bad, clean it best you can...you don`t really want to remove this part.
If my explanation is not clear enough, here`s a link which provides a pretty good video of how to do this, these guys aren`t pro`s but the "how to" video is pretty thorough nonetheless.
Let me know how you make out, please keep me informed if you need further assistance or anything is unclear.
Thank you for choosing FixYa and good luck.
