Ariston margherita wont drain and selector knob keeps turning

Hi,

Thanks for your tim

    i have a maytag neptune top load washer.  it will not finish draining the water.  the error code is nd.  i have already turned it off and tried to start a new wash cycle; i think i hear the water running, but then the machine just stops.  in the manual it says to check for a plug in the stand pipe.  how do i do this?

    I have the same problem i have had the pump out and all pipes are clean and unblocked. put it all back together and put it on drain and nothing happens! just a click then a minute later the knob turns round and round.



    Do you think i need a new pump? i would rather spend 25 quid on a new pump than 250 quid ona new machine!



    Please help

Plug off the wall first. The spin normally does not work when the outlet filter is clogged; be prepared for a flood of water. If the filter is clean you should then check your pipe coming out from under the tub. Last check your outlet pump, could be blocked with something. Refit carefully, you might need a nice pair of pliers to get the grip clip on and off the pipes.
You can also drain water from the tub thru the rear hose in the wall. Keep bucket handy. The outlet pipe into the wall stands at a particular height, refit exactly to this height, about 3 feet from ground. Do not push the pipe too much down the stand pipe.

Fixing the filter at the front bottom worked for me! It was clogged up with coins and junks. See this thread too.

    Same Ariston Margherita AL88 model which wouldn't spin. Only the dial kept spinning with an uninspiring click. I had all the water which was stuck in the machine drained and saw that the motor blades weren't working. Gave a light push at the blades with a stick

SOURCE: 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.

How to replace the WASH CYCLE SELECTOR KNOB - on an Ariston AV 105 Washing Machine

Replacing the wash cycle selector knob on an Ariston AV 105 washing machine can be done with the following steps:
  1. Turn off the washing machine and unplug it from the power source.
  2. Locate the wash cycle selector knob on the control panel of the washing machine.
  3. Remove the old wash cycle selector knob by pulling it straight off the control panel.
  4. Inspect the knob shaft to ensure that it is not damaged or worn. If the shaft is damaged, it may need to be replaced before installing the new knob.
  5. Align the new wash cycle selector knob onto the knob shaft, ensuring that it is fully seated.
  6. Push the new knob firmly onto the knob shaft until it clicks into place.
  7. Test the new wash cycle selector knob by turning it to different wash cycle settings to ensure that it is functioning correctly.
  8. Once you are satisfied that the new knob is working properly, plug the washing machine back into the power source and turn it on.
If you do not have a replacement knob, you can contact Ariston or a local appliance parts supplier to obtain the correct part. Make sure to have the model number and serial number of your washing machine on hand when ordering a replacement knob to ensure that you receive the correct part.

Ariston Margherita ald 1 40 Error code H2O

H2O is the symbol for WATER and probably indicates a WATER related fault on your machine. A pressure switch is the normal way the machines 'sense' when the level is sufficient. Overfilling suggests a faulty switch, which will need to be replaced by a technician. Also, ensure that the machine drains as it should, if not, the pump filter may be blocked.
