Question about Ariston Technologies Ariston AWD12 Front Load Washer/Dryer
Check the pressure switch -the system that determines correct water level in the drum. Its a round item about 3 inches across with several wires connected, it sits under the top cover. Its an air operated switch which tells the machine water has reached the correct level. Disconnect the thin rubber pipe from the switch and blow down through it to clear any blockage. Switch itself may be faulty but its more likely the pipe is blocked.
Also check the filter - generally located behind a panel at the foot of the machine.Some are obvious like little square hatches and some are hidden behind the trim panel at the foot of the machine. Once panel is removed the filter should be visible. Its generally a circular plastic fitting which unscrews in an anticlockwise direction. Some hotpoint, indesit and ariston filters are located in the big black sump hose (the one that leaves the bottom of the outer drum and connects to the pump). Remove the back cover, locate hose, remove the tensioner clip by squeezing the tabs together, remove the hose, take out filter and clean.

The problem most likely is something stuck in the water port of the drain pump. The pump is located in the front right bottom of the machine and accessible by removing the lower front panel, It is held in place by 4 small screws and is connected to the drain lines. Disconnect the plug for the outlet, and then disconnect the power connection from the pump. Disconnect the drain lines after removing as much water possible from the drum as the water will come out of these lines when you remove them. Remove the pump, open the cover to see the impeller and hopefully the bobby pin, nail, screw, or whatever else is stuck there will be visible and easily removed. Put the pump cover back on, replace the drain lines and screws, and reconnect the power connection to the pump.

My EWD1477 was doing this a year ago and I fixed it. Then it started
doing it again a month ago and I seem to have cleared it again.
Firstly, remove the drain hose from where it is inserted into a laundry
sink hole to make sure it is not blocked or sealed in with sludge.
Secondly, make sure the machine is empty of water and clothes and then turn
the machine to off with the Program Selector Dial. Then turn off the power at
the socket and remove the power plug and leave for five minutes.
Step 1: put the plug back in and turn the power back on.
Step 2: turn the selector switch to the right (Whites/Intensive). The green light of the Start/Pause button
should be flashing and the green lights on for Prewash/wash, Rinses and
Spinning. Don't press any other buttons or change any other settings.
Step 3: press the Start/Pause button and wait for the machine to empty
any excess water. Press it again immediately after you hear water flowing into
the machine OR two audible clicks. The machine is now in pause mode with the
green light of the Start/Pause button flashing. Only the green light on the Prewash/Wash
button should be on. Leave it in pause mode for 30 minutes and then press the Start/Pause
button to recommence the cycle.
Step 4: If the Start/Pause button begins flashing, water stops flowing
into the machine and the three green lights mentioned above are back on, turn
the Program Selector Dial back to off, wait 10 seconds, and repeat the process
Step 5: If when you then turn the Program Selector Dial to
Whites/Intensive and hear the two audible clicks, immediately press the
Start/Pause button to set the machine in pause mode. Wait 30 minutes. Then
press the Start/Pause button to recommence the cycle.
Hopefully the cycle will run without a problem.
