Question about Ariston Technologies Washing Machines

2 Answers

I have an Aristom Margherita (AB95) washing machine. The catch on the door won't release, most probably a spring has broken or moved. How do I release the door to get the washing out & how can I fix it?

    Hi

    As mentioned in my original query the model # is AB95

    Don't worry about it as I have released the mechanism myself while waiting for you. I will of course be expecting a refund in full. Regards Denis Casey

On most machines you can unscrew the lower panel and remove the lower panel and reach up along the right side (if your facing towards)and pull down on the pull cord that is attached to the door lock assembly this usuually frees the door and enables you to get to clothes stuck on the inside and you can usually fix this by removing the front door panel and replacing the door lock assembly message me back your model number and i may be able to find you a schematic or lead you in the cheapest direction in obtaining your part to your machine And please remember when our chat is concluded to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation. I await your reply thanks again Rick

Unable to open door


Hi,

Remove the top cover, and release the door catch from inside the washer, you will probably need a screwdriver or similar to do do this.You will need to replace the door catch and spring, and possibly the door lock, as it may break when you force the door open.

Thank you !!

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
