Question about Washing Machines
My washer/dryer will fill and then it does 3 fast spins which last about 3 seconds each and then the door lock led flashes rapidly while the Rapid light flashes slowly
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.
