I have just started having a problem with my Ariston Margherita 2000.
I put on a cycle (any cycle seems to have the problem) and the machine takes in water, stops, takes in more water.
Then it attempts to start to move the drum round and rinse the clothes and the drum stops (it usually makes about an 8th turn before it stops).
It then sits there for a second or two, then starts pumping the water out again.
It does this for a bit then stops, after which you can open the door.
When it starts pumping the water out the dial starts turning round and clicking. I counted 10 flashes.
The mashine is an AWD 10 UK Advantage.
I have read other forum items and checked the coin tray (found a 20p)
Cleared coin tray and machine still has problem.
I checked the outlet hose, and moved it up so it was not all the way down the waste pipe. Tried again still no change.
Also: I have found that I can do a spin cycle ok and a drying cycle ok.
