Ariston Al 109K (Margherita 2000)
by Rex Centeno
We have a Margherita 2000 (Ariston) for 8 years now. It run trouble-free during the first 6 years and then the tub bearing broke. As Ariston does not have a dedicated service center for their brand, it took about 7 months for the parts to come.
After about 2 months of use, the electronics board gave up which really cost quiet a sum of money, half of the original price of the machine. After 8 months of use, the drum suspension assembly broke down.
Now, we have decided to just give up repars and is contemplating on buying a new washer, maybe a Samsung or an LG. Never again will we buy another Ariston washer.
