SOURCE: The 4th green light on

You did not mention what model number that you had but this is what I found after a little digging:

From :
For future reference, the technician who replaced the control board for me gave me a complete list of flashing LED fault codes for the Ariston LL65 (which are same as Ariston LL64):

001000 Float Switch: Water in Base Pan
001100 No Drain: Dranin Motor Disabled, Filters Clogged, Dramin Hose Blocked
001010 Main Motor Presure Switch Blocked Filter
100100 Control Board: Software of Control Board not Recognized.
000100 Water Valve: Water Valve Diabled <--- This one sounds like your error
000110 Fill Fault: Water Valve Disabled, Turbine Disabled or Control Board
000101 Heating Element disabled or High Limit Open or Control Board
000010 NTC defective or not positioned or control board
000001 NTC defective or not positioned or control board

KEY: 0 = LED off
1 = LED flashing

I also found this for a different model:
No Program Code Fault condition
1 Heavy wash 1000 Operation of flood
protection system
2 Normal wash 0100 Heating
element/Thermistor/Thermostat fault
3 Rapid wash 0010 Drain pump fault or drain
4 Soak wash 0001 Not filling to correct
level within 6 minutes

'low rinse' stuck on with full rinse aid, can't start wash cycle

Actually, if you look closely at that Low Rinse button or emblem, you will see a little lock symbol ABOVE the words "Low Rinse", and I'll bet THAT light is the one that is on. Basically, you have the control lock (or child-lock) turned on. To turn it off, you have to press and hold the SANITIZE button for 3 to 5 seconds until that light goes off. Now your dishwasher will work!

Why is the Rinse Cycle and Drying not working

Unfortunately you did not specify the model dishwasher so I'll give you a general answer.
(The indicator light, straight from Washing moves to completion stage where the light blinks rapidly) I believe you means the "End LED" (LED 3) blinks rapidly. If this is true and according to your description of failure (no drying, no rinsing) I think that appeared alarm AL04. It means the thermistor (NTC) not compliant - probable failure of the component that detects the temperature .
I suggest you to check: thermistor NTC, wiring and electronic.

Ariston l63 is not rinsing proper cycle but instead flashing 12hr light

Error messages,
Your dishwasher is equipped with a safety system which is able to detect any operating anomalies. These anomalies are reported by one or two wash cycle indicator lights "G" flashing rapidly.
24463930-0h3kxpflbez5mdeb5anq3st4-3-0.jpg Flashing LED diode above the mark 12h (drying) indicates faulty NTC thermistor. So, could be faulty: thermistor NTC, wiring between NTC and control board, control board.

I am trying to start a cyle and everytime i push the cycle button it does not light up and the quick rinse button comes on and flashes nothing works at all if i push heavy wash it comes on and nothing...

You haven't told me how many times the light flashes, but I will take a guess that this is an error code associated with the water entering the machine being too cool. I believe the machine expects the water to enter at 110 degrees F (43 Degrees C).

To clear the error, press "Heated Dry" then release, then press "Normal Wash" then release and repeat this sequence until all the lights on the machine go solid green. Once this happens, hit ""Cancel" and the machine will reset.

The fix for the root of the problem is to increase the temperature of the incoming water in future (Turn up your water heater temperature a little)
