the problem is likely the pressure switch. In normal conditions the pressure switch will open the circuit to drain pump when no water is detected. If the switch is faulty the drain part of the cycle will not stop.

If the pressure switch is not faulty, then the electronic control board is defective.

As said, the problem is usually the pressure switch.

The parts can be ordered ringing Ariston. The phone number is listed on the owner manual.

Here also a third party distributor in UK.

    AMD 121 won't shut off, or change cycles. Continuously "hums".

    Did you try just unplugging from the wall outlet, and let sit for 15 seconds and plugging back in. Sort of like a re-boot on the computer? Just a suggestion.

    Ariston avxl 129 washing machine has stopped working.

    This washer does not have a good track record. There are many many complaints out their on this brand in general. It is also not a cheap purchase.

    1st. Suspect is the mother board followed by the motor.

    Bosch classixx 1000 washing machine - stops on spin

    Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x
