Error code F12 will accompany this flashing light sequence and points to an electronic control fault that results in your washing machine not turning on.

When your Ariston washing machine has all lights flashing and is not draining this would indicate a possible obstruction in the filter or drain pipe. Alternatively, this may be an issue with the main control board which would need to be expertly replaced. If F09 shows alongside the flashing lights it’s a further indication that there’s a software fault.

If this happens it’s an indication that the door interlock is defective and your appliance won’t start as the door isn’t closing securely. If the door lock continues to flash this may be due to a faulty circuit board.
