Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Had the same problem with our Bosch, cap would not even turn!
Suggestions- (+ patience!)
pour anticalc/limescale fluid into any gap there is around the cap. Empty the machine and you can switch it off providing the door is open! Then pour the contents of at least 2 sachets of proprietary anticalc powder/liquid into the drum direct together with a kettle full of boiling water. Leave overnight at the very least. The following day run just a spin cycle as then there will be no water diluting the mix. This mix will go through the filter and motor and is likely to help release the filter/cap. If you feel like it, do the overnight again. If nothing else it will ensure that the heater element is clean!
I had to spend a couple of hours gently turning the cap back and forth until it finally released its hold- but the filter did not remain attached to the cap by its rubber ring. More patience, anticalc fluid and all was revealed!
I now run an anticalc clean regularly............which reminds me..............!
Good luck
John C

Ariston Margherita Washer Dryer 2000 dries when not supposed to.


I think I am right in saying that on this machine you have the facility to either incorporate the drying process as part of a program or you can use it as a stand alone dryer, is it possible that you have simply asked the machine to dry after wash by selecting a wrong program is there a another button that allows you to wash with out dry even on a wash dry program if there is such a button/switch and it does not seem to do much it could be that the switch contact have corroded and are not making proper electrical contact check manuel

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.
