We will always try to keep this up to date but every printed circuit board behind the control panel has its own diagnostic system so this is only a guide for you.

Merloni made washing machines (Ariston, Hotpoint Indesit) just to name a few, if there are no flashes or error code displayed but door lock LED is lit and washing machine fails to start then check door lock and associated connections .

Basic type

F10 – No cold fill. Check that the taps are on or if the drain hoses are kinked.

F11 – No hot fill. The ambient temperature is likely to be below freezing possibly due to the pipes being frozen. Also check that the taps are on or if the drain hoses are kinked.
F12 – No mixed fill. It is likely that the water is not turned on at the taps.
F13 – Check the water supply, inlet valve and hot and cold hose connections.
F14 – A fault with the water heating has occurred*
F15 – Water is not being pumped out and a flood condition could occur. Check that the drainage hose is raised to the recommended minimum height and that the pipe is not blocked.
F16 – Extremely high water level. Disconnect or turn off the water supply and ensure that the water level does not rise any more*
F17 – Door not closed properly. Close door firmly at the 3 o’clock position.
F20/1 – The thermistor resistance has drifted or the temperature scanning sequence is incorrect. The ambient temperature could be below freezing*
F30/31 – A motor drive problem has occurred. Try running the programme again. If the problem persist, book an engineer.
F40 – Water below protection level during a heat step*
F41 – Water level detect sequence incorrect*
F50/51 – Customer language and wash programme have not been saved. The system will run with default conditions (1000rpm max and English language)*

    Buenas tardes, tengo una lavadora Ariston Aqualtis AQXXL 129, que al darle inicio a cualquier programa, comienza a titilar todas las luces del display y se enciende la bomba de agua. Luego de eso, no responde a ningun comando y queda siempre asi. Lo unico que queda es desenchufarlo y al volver a intentar pedir que realice cualquier funcion o programa,vuelve a suceder lo mismo. Buscando los codigos de error de ariston no encuentro informacion sobre este. Alguien podria darme una mano?
