Re: Ariston LS 620 A Dishwasher
Since, the pump doesn't stop working, it sound like a water level switch issue.
The switch level is usually a diaphragm device with a small clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. I am not familiar with this specific machine, but if you will open the rear panel you will find it easily. Clear tube first from any obstruction, In case it doesn't help, disconnect the wires from the unit (you should disconnect first machine's power cable !!!!!) and measure with a multi-meter on its tugs for continuity and disconnection while you are inhale and blow to its tube.
In case it doesn't react, you should replace it.
Good luck !

The problem seems to be water seepage into the electrical contact. If the heater has lost its insulation this problem could accur ( element to body )
Disconnect the heater and give a try without any load and soap. If it performs OK , you have to check the heater by removing from the machine. Mainly I suspect water seepage into the electrical system.
The water temp thermostat is to blame or the water is not heating.Basically what happens is the washer fills with cold water and starts to wash and heat at the same time.Once the water reaches a certain temperature it moves onto the next stage of the wash program.If the water is not heating or the thermostat is not working the programmer wont get the signal to move on.Hope this helps.
this appliance is a built in dishwasher and may have somthing jamming the pump,this can only be acessed from the bottom and may require the appliance being removed,also check that there is not a blockage at he sink.
If there's no water entering your dishwasher, check these:
Water-inlet valve Float switch Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. It's usually located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it.
Float switch The float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below the dishwasher "floor." Above the switch, on the inside of the dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills the dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets caught or trapped in the raised position, the water can't enter the dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it.
1)Ensure the dishwasher is turned off. 2) (may not apply) Turn the plastic blue lever located under the sink to the vertical position (this opens the valve, so water can go into the dishwasher) 3)Pour powder indo the dishwasher 4)Turn the dishwasher controller to the top position (the 12 o’clock position) – this is the eco-setting. 5)Press the on/power button on the dishwasher, so that it now turned on (a light will display) 6)Move the dishwasher controller to the “R” position (it’s on the very left), and leave it there a second or two. 7)Move the dishwasher controller back to the eco-setting (the 12 o’clock position).
