Disconnect power by tripping circuit breaker or unplugging power cord. While power is off check inlet hose, if there is not enugh pressure fom inlet, machine goes to drain and shuts down.

If when connecting power back there is no water coming in check:

Door lock
Inlet hose at the back
Inlet valve
water level sensor (float or pressure)

If there is water getting in but cycle does not advance check:

Hot inlet in valve (if valve is dual)
Heating sysem (if valve is not dual0
water level.

Pay particular attention to the door latch. If the machine is not cycling at all, this is common failure causing machine not even filling. The door latch switch is tested by technician running a cycle with door latch contacts jumped.
Most machines also have a fuse on timer board that must be checked.
If all the above is Ok go for the timer board, that is likely the problem

You either have a food or glass particle lodged in the wash motor impeller not letting it turn or more likely the wash motor capacitor needs replacement.

I suggest getting a repairer as the Aristons are tricky to repair.

Ariston afa 370x leaking water after wash cycle puddle on floor. no problem with anything else


When you are doing your laundry and you notice water on the floor that should not be there. A moderately handy homeowner will be able to identify and fix many kinds of leaks. Doing the service your self can save you the cost and hassle of having a service technician come out. Small leaks lead to large ones quickly, and that can result in ruined flooring and the possibility of mold growth. Fix most leaks in a day or less, with purchased parts from supply houses or home improvement stores.

Here are Instructions and tools Needed to solve the problem

  • Flashlight ,Adjustable wrench ,Flathead and Philips screwdrivers
1. Water Supply Leaks

1 Find the source of the leak. Turn on the machine while it is empty, and then look behind it with a flashlight while the tub is filling. Pay close attention to the hoses, and look for drips or running water. Some drips may start out slow, but gain momentum with continued water pressure.

2 Turn the water off. Often, if the water is leaking from the fitting where the hose attaches to the tap in the wall, you need to replace the hose gaskets. Unscrew the hose from the tap by hand or by using an adjustable wrench. Use a flathead screwdriver to pry the old gasket out. Place a new gasket in the hose connection where the old one was removed.

3 Turn the water on, and check for leaks again. If a leak is at the fitting or elsewhere on the hose itself, replace the entire hose and gasket assembly. Turn the water on again, and check for leaks. If the machine still leaks, check your work, and then look for other causes.
2. Pump Replacement 1Move the dial to the end of the wash cycle to drain the water from the tub. Turn the water off at the wall supply taps.

2 Remove the top of the washer. In many models, the top pops up when you apply upward pressure to the front of the washer at the joint. Sometimes, you may have to remove part of the instrument panel, which is attached with screws.

3 Look into the cabinet around the tub to find the pump. Pumps are either direct-drive or belt-driven. If you see a belt, you have a belt-driven pump. If there is no belt, it is a direct-drive pump. Remove water lines, and take out the old pump. Replace with a new pump, reattach water lines, and reattach the belt, if necessary. Turn on the water, and check for leaks.

Good Luck and thanks for using fixya.

Ariston A1635 Margherita Control knob spinning

According to the instruction book - it appears the machine has been stopped mid cycle then re-started.
Switch machine off, turn control knob to a solid circle symbol (they are after every set cycle). Switch machine back on and lights will flash and program is reset. You can then select wash cycle as normal.

Dial continuously turning

to reset the dial, switch the power off, then turn the dial to a dot on the selection then switch the power on, the light should flash about 3-4 times this should be it reset.

for the machine to start doing this mid cyle though usually indicates something is wrong, i would hazard a guess at the pump filter is blocked and the mahine was trying to drain at the time it started clicking.

the best thing to do is empty the machine manually by placing the outlet hose into a bucket or large dish, once empty remove the plastic kick plate on the bottom of the machine and behind this you will find the filter.
before you unscrew the filter you will need to place some towels or old cloths on the floor as there will still be water left in the pipes, remove filter and any foreign objects (possibly coins, hair clips etc) and then screw back in. job done.

hope this helps

please dont forget to rate the helpfulness of this reply, thanks kj

Indesit D167. When cycle selected no water pumping or filling but 1 & 2 green indicators on.

Tilt your dishwasher forwards. Be aware that water will come out ouf the bottom. Once this is clear your washer should be Ok.
Good Luck
