    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.

I can't stop the dryer from coming on Ariston AL128D, I just want to wash

Hi there, the F button on your washing machine (see manual http://www.gebruikershandleiding.com/Hotpoint-Ariston-al-128-d-margherita/preview-handleiding-431405.html?page=0004) is the clue. if pushed in it won't dry. don't know why, but by trial and error this seems to work

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.
