When the filter gets blocked the dryer doesn't work.
The filter is located behind the small panel to the rear of the machine.
Remove the three screws and then the plastic panel.

The filter is located in the large black rubber gater tube which is held on by an adjustable clip.

Remove the clip by unscrewing the philips head screw and pull the tube down to remove. The filter has what appears to be a table tennis ball inside. Apparently this helps with self cleaning!

Remove the filter, clean and replace. The filter needs a little fiddling to get to sit right. Replace the gater tube and re-fit and tightend clip. Check for tightness and set the machine away and check for leaks etc. This job takes about 20 minutes.

If this doesn't solve the problem you will need to focus your attention to the heater element or thermastat located on the top of the machine behind a cast plate help on with torque screws.

Hope this helps.

Take the top off and look for an orange wire, is it broken? Mine was, repaired it and it works great now.

Most likely the EPROM is gone, or more commonly known as the PCB (Programm Control board) and it needs replacement. Costs about £80 for the board plus installation.

Ariston a1600wd not working


There is a filter of sorts in the pump inlet pipe, its a big item catcher coins etc, but thats got nothing to do with the module error wich is a pricey item at £120! I've had one go already and in the last year, a inlet valve plus a control pcb panel in fact its almost a NEW machine! i'll never buy another hotpoint or ariston again. The machine is two yrs old!

Ariston washer/dryer. Dryer not working


Assuming everything else is working, it sounds like your heating element is burned out. Two years is a little short for the typical life span but not unthinkable.

Here's a photo of the part for your unit at a site that sells them. If you pull the back panel off and trace the wires, you should be able to find this part easily. It is designed to be replaced.

Ariston washer/dryer. Dryer not working


probably 2 separate faults no heat is possibly either open circuit on the elements which are at the top of the machine, or open circuit thermal cut outs (up to 3 of) located also at the top of the machine near to where the element is and along the flow of the hot air, you can check these with a normal electrical multi-meter, unplug machine before testing as for the vibration on spin, just look for any loose suspension legs, and or twisted drum alignment, very difficult to work on due to lack of access but sometimes just re-tightening the legs up etc, could cure the vibration hope i have helped you to start somewhere take care to note in detail any wires or parts removed or in case of accidental removal
