    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.

Ariston dishwasher lkf 720 has a problem on/off, washing and end indicator lights are flashing


Reading the error code

The fault on the appliance is signalled via:

1. the continuous rotation of the selector knob
2. the action, for the first 4', of the electrovalve and the drain pump
3. the door becomes unlocked
4. the led flashes: the number of flashes indicates the fault code; the code should be read as follows:
· each fast flash (2/3 flashes of the led very close together) represents one code value
· the fault code is evaluated by counting the number of flashes occurring at 3/4" intervals from one another
· stop counting when the washing machine waits the equivalent of approximately 8/9" between flashes
· the procedure is repeated by the appliance cyclically

After you determine which the alarm code appeared we will able specifically to help you.

Front load Whirlpool washer will not fill with water this happened once while under warranty and it was some kind of senser that was out I think it is the sensor again but do not know what sensor


Hi, this could be a faulty door lock. If the washer is put on a spin cycle does it burst into life? If yes then door lock is fine. If no movement then this may just be a bad connection on door sensor (clean contacts) or it may need new door lock.

Constant clicking of door lock


Suggestion: Try a little WD40 spray on the door, not on the machine. Close and open 2 or 3 times while plug is off the wall mains.

Ariston awd 1200 fills,advances and empties, but will not wash or spin.Belt ok, drum rotates free. Any advise?


The fault is on the motor control board, which is on the bottom left when looking from the back of the machine. There's a good chance that one on the connectors will have over-heated and burned the track. I fixed ours by utilising an unused connector on the board and swapping the pins in the connector.

Hotpoint aquarius washer dryer wd63 1100 spin - my fuse went just as i was switching the machine on - so the door locked and wont open - changed the fuse, door was still locked so thought id let the wash...


Try buttons "dry" & "spin" together for a few seconds. This is the child lock display.

Or press "end of cycle" for over 3 seconds.

Or press "options & select" till the light goes off.

Works for other machines..............And please rate me if helped

Ariston margherita washer dryer awd12


To dry you need to turn the program to the little 'star' sign after the program 8 and not before. You then need to select the time you want the dryer on for, if you don't select a time the dryer doesn't come on...........not filling is a problem, it may be ythe electrics or it may be that there is something wrong with the door -if the machine thinks trhe door isn't closed it won't fill up but this machine generally uses a small amount of water and wil not actually fill up as such anyway......hope that helps!
