Ariston washing machine troubleshooting

To troubleshoot a particular problem after diagnosis, keep the following handy tips in mind:

  • Check for power: this may seem intuitive but it can happen that during a spin cycle, the power cord gets disconnected. Alternatively, check that the breaker has not flipped.
  • Troubleshooting when a spin cycle is not working: firstly, check if the “easy iron” button is pressed, check your hose to see if it’s kinked and is not letting the water out as it should. Alternatively, check the balance of your load.
  • When the washing machine is too noisy when operating: check that the washing machine is on a flat, level and smooth surface. Remove the packing screws that are located at the back of the machine after purchasing it. Also make sure that the drum area is free of foreign objects.
  • When you see detergent residue on your clothes: this could be due to using too much detergent or a water hardness issue.
