SOURCE: Our Ariston Margherita 2000 AB95
Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,
You said, your Ariston Margherita 2000 AB95 Sounds like a jet plane when spinning
And asked me Is it worth fixing?
That depends how old the unit is?
Let me know what the results are.
Here is an interesting report I just read!
Repair or replace?
When to pull the plug on your old washer
Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.
Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your washer,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.
Follow these guidelines:
When a repair makes sense.
If your washer is under warranty or less than four years old ,
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that washers under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.
When a repair might be a wise choice.
If your washer is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.
When it pays to replace.
The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new washer.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive washer
eight or more years old.
Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of washers you replace are likely to end up in a landfill.
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!

NOTE. PLEASE UN-PLUG THE UNIT FROM THE ELECTRICITY SUPPLY BEFORE ATTEMPTING THE FOLLOWING JUST TO BE SAFE:-
Problem may be due to a blocked dispenser hole. Completely remove the dispenser unit and check for blockages in the hole where the water goes in. If you cant see anything immediate, take the top off. (Remove the 2 self tapping screws on the back holding the top on). Looking at the unit from the front. look inside where you took the top off and locate the rubber hose that connects the dispenser unit to the drum (it's a tight space, but if you look inside , front left you will see where the hose connects to the drum). Remove the hose and check for blockages. (The hose just pushes into the drum). Let me know. I had a similar problem and found that somebody had shoved a sock and pair of knickers down the water dispenser hole. This was also causing the machine to make a loud noise when spinning. Have you also checked the filter in the bottom right hand corner of the unit ? You have to remove the kick panel to get access to it.

I have just typed in 'Ariston washer manuals' into Google and it has returned many sources. It should be possible for you to find one there.
Fixya tends to give instructions and guidance from people like me (retired Englishman in SW France @ 14:16 Sat afternoon) rather than the direct supply of manuals.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry, this FixYa Washer Forum does not supply service centre numbers, engineers, spares, software, installation instructions or prices; it is just made up of ordinary guys and gals, probably at home, from all over the world, with experience of addressing problems and giving guidance for free on the web ;-0)
Also members on Fixya are not 'affiliated' to, or representative of, any manufacturer at all, just using their experience gained probably over many years.
You will either have to search in your local telephone directories OR stay on line and search for '(make) washer service' for instance or '(make) washer spares' and hope that you can find someone reasonably local.
Sorry again ;-0(
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
