The arti­cle will dis­cuss the dis­clo­sure of pos­si­ble caus­es and solv­ing the prob­lem that arose in the oper­a­tion of the Aris­ton wash­ing machine due to error F 09. The error indi­cates a fail­ure of the con­trol mod­ule, which is respon­si­ble for select­ing pro­grams installed by the man­u­fac­tur­er. Below are the main points that will help you under­stand the caus­es of the break­down and how to fix the F09 Aris­ton error.

Error decoding

On wash­ing machines that do not have a dis­play, when this prob­lem occurs, the indi­ca­tors will flash, as fol­lows:

Aris­ton Margheri­ta Out­dat­ed 2000 mod­el. An error is indi­cat­ed by a repeat­ing cycle — the on / off indi­ca­tor blinks 9 times, a break with an inter­val of 10 sec­onds. and repeat. In this case, the selec­tor knob will rotate clock­wise with char­ac­ter­is­tic clicks.
Mod­els AVL, AVTL, AVSL The error is dis­played by flash­ing on the first upper and low­er but­tons, which are respon­si­ble for addi­tion­al func­tions (main­ly these are the “Delay Timer” and “Extra Rinse” but­tons.) And the indi­ca­tor respon­si­ble for lock­ing the door (“Key”) will flick­er more inten­sive­ly.
Hot­point-Aris­ton Low-End mod­els (ARSL, ARXL, ARTL The fault is indi­cat­ed by the blink­ing first and fourth indi­ca­tors (Door Lock and Spin). Also, all indi­ca­tors of addi­tion­al func­tions can be con­stant­ly lit (the entire hor­i­zon­tal row)
Hot­point-Aris­ton Aqualtis machines Error F9 is report­ed by flash­ing the first and fourth tem­per­a­ture indi­ca­tors (wash­ing in cold water and 50 ° C).

Step 1: Reboot

Rebooting the washing machine

If the prob­lem lies in the fail­ure of the con­trol or dis­play mod­ule, just unplug the wash­ing machine from the out­let, wait a few min­utes and con­nect the device to the net­work. There will be an ordi­nary reboot of the con­trol mod­ule, and the prob­lem will fix itself. Did not help? Check­ing the con­trol mod­ule.

Step 2. Checking the contacts of the control unit

  • Remov­ing the top cov­er
  • Dis­man­tle the front con­trol pan­el.
  • We visu­al­ly look at all the con­tacts and con­nec­tors that con­nect the micro­cir­cuit to the con­trol mod­ule. If a con­tact has come off some­where, rein­stall it.

Step 3. Checking the stabilizer U1, surge protector S1, capacitors

  • Inspect all capac­i­tors for swelling. In 90% of cas­es, this is the prob­lem. Sol­der­ing and insert­ing a capac­i­tor of the same capac­i­ty is not as dif­fi­cult as it might seem.
  • Check the reli­a­bil­i­ty of the con­nec­tion that leads to the surge pro­tec­tor S1, as well as sol­der­ing, it is advis­able to ring every­thing with a mul­ti­me­ter.
  • We check the sta­bi­liz­er U1, coil, capac­i­tor, fuse, i.e. all ele­ments that are respon­si­ble for sup­ply­ing volt­age.

Faults requiring complex repair

  1. Wiring dam­age. You need to find where the wiring is dam­aged, sol­der or replace the cables with new ones. Inde­pen­dent­ly, with a mul­ti­me­ter, you can ring each cable and wire for integri­ty. If a break is found, replace with a new one.
  2. Firmware (mem­o­ry) fail­ure of the con­trol mod­ule — the mas­ter must repro­gram the micro­cir­cuit.
  3. The dis­play unit or one of the ele­ments is bro­ken. Each ele­ment is called, the faulty one is iden­ti­fied and replaced with a new one. Local repairs are not always pos­si­ble, then the board changes com­plete­ly.
  4. The con­trol board burned out. Repair is some­times pos­si­ble, but often a replace­ment is made for a new one.


Try the sim­ple repair steps your­self. In case of a com­plex repair, you will need knowl­edge of elec­tron­ics and a sol­der­ing iron with a mul­ti­me­ter. If you can’t fix the prob­lems your­self, con­tact any ser­vice cen­ter. The cost of such repairs varies from 1400 to 8500 rubles.
