Step-by-Step Ariston Machine Fault Testing

Do-it-yourself repair of the Ariston Margarita 2000 washing machine is recommended only if a special service test is available. It allows you to easily detect any defect in the operation of the device and make repairs faster and easier. Next, we will learn how to run this test and check the operation of the machine.

Work with a service test

For the service test to start working, you will need the aforementioned key to conduct SAT diagnostics. This tool has the following code - 95669. It allows you to run the program for automatic testing of the model "Margarita 2000". Then we connect the device to the connector and wait until the corresponding indicator lights up. First, the key will exchange information with the electronic controller for some time.

The test program starts as follows:

  1. We check the connection of the machine with water supply and sewage.
  2. We inspect the tank for the presence of residual water in it, if it is, then you must immediately remove it.
  3. The hatch door is tightly closed.
  4. Set the selector knob to its original position.
  5. Press the “AUTO TEST” button on the key and hold it.
  6. As soon as automatic testing begins, you will immediately hear a beep.

Important! During testing, the selector knob will automatically rotate, and at the same time, codes of the corresponding nature will be displayed on the panel. If the test detects an error, the indicator will turn off continuously and the light will flash in flashes, that is, indicate a malfunction code.

The number of flashes indicates an error code. Note that during testing, the water inside the device will heat up to 30 degrees, so you need to set a limit for heating the water, disable the spin function and set any drying time.

Performing a Service Test Phase

It is possible to conditionally divide the diagnostic process of the Ariston Margarita 2000 washing machine into several stages. Faults and possible breakdowns are eliminated in the following sequence:

  1. The bay valve for washing in the main mode for 10 seconds is selected and started.
  2. Then it starts prewash for the same time in the same mode.
  3. The hot water valve opens for 10 seconds.
  4. At the same time, bay valves for main and pre-wash are activated. Water will flow into the tank until the sensor gives a signal that it is full.
  5. The drum rotates first clockwise, and then - in the opposite direction.
  6. The heating element turns on and the water warms up to 30 degrees.
  7. The handle moves in the normal direction of rotation, and then stops in the 9th position.
  8. The drain pump starts to work. Moreover, it will function until the sensor reports that the tank is empty.
  9. If the device is equipped with a drying mode, then its fan will start working at this stage, and then the heater will turn on and the air inside the tank will begin to warm up.
  10. The selector knob goes into the reset position.
  11. The program is completing its work.

Important! If the malfunction of the Ariston Margarita 2000 washing machine was resolved before the start of the test, then the service analysis will simply not start. To restart the machine in this case, you will need to turn it on for 10 seconds, disconnect the service key and start it again.

  2. The machine began to randomly fill and drain the water, but the specific hum of the pump was not heard, then you need to check at what height the drain hose is installed. This distance should not be less than 60 centimeters. Perhaps the cause of the malfunction was the disconnection of the drain hose due to vibration.To solve it, you need to return the hose to its place.
  3. The device does not drain water. You can try to drain it manually using the drain filter, only before that you need to substitute the tray under the machine. It is also recommended to check the cleanliness of the filter and the drain hose, and if necessary, clean them.
  4. The machine stopped executing program commands, namely, the apparatus responsible for the selection of functions constantly rotates in a circle. You need to take something metal with an insulated handle and set the switch handle to a black dot, then pull the plug out of the socket, close the outputs on the cord plug with this item. Thus, the residual voltage is removed from the device module and the program is reset.
