    The washing machine switches on and fills water initially but then does not turn and the programme swich keeps on going turning.

    i have the same problem too-the switch just keeps clicking round-have you found out what it is?

  • arzu Feb 28, 2008

    yep. mine has done the same thing as well. i'm sure turning it off, waiting 5 second, and then re-starting the cycle is bad (which is what i do) BUT the manual doesn't offer suggestions for this type of issue. so if anyone DOES know the proper thing to do, pass it on!

Make sure the filter is clean, its behind the front bottom panel which just pull off, then unscrew the filter thumb wheel until it comes out. Check it is clean and replace, Now unplug the machine and set the programme to your normal start setting leaving the door open. Remove the screws retaining the back panel and unplug all the connectors to the circuit board found in the bottom left hand corner. Turn the power back on ensuring the red LED illuminates and leave for 2 or 3 minutes before unplugging the power again and reconnecting the circuit boards and replacing the back panel. Reconnect the power and turn the machine on, close the door and with luck it will work. If this does not clear the fault repeat the process again or look on ebay for a new machine!

Hi guys, I too had the same problem and looked all over the net for a solution. this was the only solution i found, and my washing machine works again!! my friend had the same machine as me, and a couple of years ago he had this problem and paid alot of money to get it fixed. If you follow ivorc's instructions your machine should work again. A few things to note - the circuit board can be unscrewed and released from the frame of the machine. After I unplugged all the connectors to the circuit board (about 5 or 6 of them - it was kinda hard to pull them out) and turned the power back on, the LED did not illuminate - I left it on for 2-3 min anyway - i plugged all the connectors back and set it to wash and it worked! By the way, my machine is Ariston Margherita AL128D

We just bought a used ARISTON AWD121 washer/dryer. We tried it and the machine just kept going and did not stop until we unplugged it.
We plugged it again - and pressed the on/off button to reset - it did not work. We read the manual and still have no idea how to get the door to unlock and for this machine to work. Please help.

Un lock child lock 10d52 seimins washer dryer


to deactivate the child lock, set program to Easy-Care and hold option down arrow for 5 seconds. If still it does not get unlocked then Try pressing "dry" & "spin" together for 10 seconds or until the CL disappears. Also try pressing "end of cycle" for over 5 seconds. If this doesn't work then try pressing "options & select" till the light goes off. Also try and press ECO and rapid buttons together for more than 10 seconds.
IF IT IS LIKE MY 5202 YOU HAVE TO PRESS AND HOLD THE UNLOCK BUTTON FOR LIKE 3 SECONDS. THIS PREVENTS SOMEONE FROM JUST PRESSING THE BUTTON AND ACTIVATING THE LOCK . TRY THE PRESS AND HOLD METHOD

The On-Off door lock LED flashes rapidly at the same time with Delay, Timer and Rapid LED. and it wont start.


Many times faults like this can be cured by Uplugging the washer from the mains power supply and leaving for 10mins. Also check all filters, drain and supply lines are clear and not kinked.

I have a Merlin Powerlift model 430R roller door. The battery went flat in the remote and I replaced it. Now the door will not work via the remote.Works ok from red button on unit. I have tried to reset...


If the LED is flashing rapidly when the button on the remote is not pressed you have interference from something. Check for old remotes stored in a drawer somewhere or some new electric item nearby. Start unplugging things until that rapid flashing stops.

2002 bmw 530i key does not (remotely) unlock doors or trunk but they work fine manually.


Unlock vehicle. Enter vehicle. Close driver's door. Switch ignition ON and OFF. Remove ignition key. Press and hold unlock button. Press lock button briefly 3 times within 10 seconds keeping unlock button depressed. Release unlock button. Some models: LED flashes slowly for 10 seconds. Some models: Central locking system locks and unlocks rapidly to indicate correct programming. Repeat above procedure if central locking system does not work and LED does not flash or LED flashes continuously.
