That might be someone's idea of a leak repair. Take the screw out, clean the hole thoroughly, then repair it with epoxy cement only. Don't use the 5-minute kind, but the 24 hour type. You can get an excellent epoxy from your appliance parts store. Be sure to mix it well before applying. Moderate heat increase will speed the setting time of the material. Hope this helps!

    That screw holds the element retainer in place? Without the screw holding the retainer, the drum may hit the elemnt when the machine goes into high spin.

Looks like you have the right things. All you need to do is order and new valve set and attach it. The problem could be the power or the switch to it though

Hi there, the F button on your washing machine (see manual http://www.gebruikershandleiding.com/Hotpoint-Ariston-al-128-d-margherita/preview-handleiding-431405.html?page=0004) is the clue. if pushed in it won't dry. don't know why, but by trial and error this seems to work

Problem : Water leaking out from under washing machine


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.

We have the Ariston Margherita front loader washing machine and cannot get the door open


if the machine is full of water pump blocked or broken if machine empty needs new door interlock or pressure switch blocked or broken


FIRST switch off and unplug.

Pull machine out and remove lid by undoing self tapping screws at the top back. May have to slide lid back a bit to lift off.

Internal catch mechanism will be reachable from top for manual release. You may need someone to push door inwards while you release catch.

Good luck

Ariston Margherita 2000 "AL109X" very noisy when spinning


To start ensure that machine is well balanced, and that the load is well distributed inside the drum.

If the problem is not balancing, then the most common is a broken drum bearing spider or a bad drum bearing. A symptom of drum bearing problems is the drum having excessive play when you spin by hand.
Also struts and springs must be checked.
