If the water is cold, check the inlet hose and the hot inlet in the dual inlet valve connected to the hose. If there is no hot water the cycle will not progress, and that may be related to the drain problem.
If the machine does not drain even with hot water, check the thermostat and the pressure switch. The thermostat decides when to open and close the hot inlet, moving forward with cycle when temperature is met. The pressure switch determines among other things when to start and stop drain pump.
The thermostat is tested reading Ohms, multimeter set on impedance must read low or no impedance at room temperature on thermistor contacts. The pressure switch is replaced if there is a drain problem and the rest does not help. This part is more difficult to test.
About the drain problem, check first drain lines, drain well and drain ose at the back.
As first thing call Ariston at the number listed on the owners manual and check warranty status.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(no promises but it's worth carrying this out anyway!)
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Following are my complete and hopefully 'coverall' pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
