Peace BeeSuit,

Happy to be of assistance,


You asked:
Your, AEG 6200 Digitronic washing machine is leaking from the front door seal down the front and onto the floor.
Is this a common problem and can it be fixed?
- for example by replacing the opening rubber seal?

Yes I believe that replacing the rubber seal is usually the answer.

How old is the unit? And is the washer working well other wise?
Is it draining and not smelling like mold in side?
Some times in an old machine the pump does not completely dran out and it could smell like moldy water! Then if it's aged. I would consider not fixing both of these to problems in a washer 10 years or older not to put good money in to bad!
But if the leak is the only problem, go for the seal!
Happy to of assisted and made a different s in your life!
Bless you,
Huuum

Please give me a good rating for my sound advice before you sigan off.
Thank You

Leaking water from front of door. Replaced boot seal but still leaking. It looks like door is kicked out at the bottom. Would replacing the hinges help?


Try turning the water pressure down. If you have high water pressure the water comes into the dispenser to hard and splashes over the front & side of the dispenser draw the trickles down the inside of the front panel out on to the floor. Very common front loader problem.

My 72640 AEG washing machine continually leaks even though the filter cap is tightly in place. What could be the problem please? Kate Comins


you have a hole in the rubber boot seal and need to change it,also i've seen a buildup of detergent and hair stuck on the bottom side of the front door,when the door is closed the water was traveling down the pieces of hair and leaking through the bottom of the door,but if it's leaking under where the pump is and it's not the pump or hoses it's the boot seal.open the door and pull open the boot seal and run your fingers all around until you find the hole

Leaking water onto floor from inside machine


2 common places.1 leak from the pipe/s from the valves to the dispenser box,2 @6 o/clock position in the fold of the door seal is where these models produce a small split.filter not tight.water bubbling over stand pipe when machine pumps out?these machines are usually fairly leak free so might be just one of these things i`ve listed here with luck.

How do i re set an EFO code on an AEG LAVAMAT


you just need to mop up the water inside the cabinet to allow the float switch in the base to reset.check there is nothing stopping the float returning to the floor. a small leak from the door seal can cause enough of a leak to trip it . clean the door glass and seal to stop this. or change the door seal.

Small **** in the rubber molding inside the door; leaking.


You may need to replace the door seal. But first take some 100% pure silicone and push some in the hole and around the hole. Let this dry for 24 hours before using this should seal it up. If this does not work replace the door seal. Here is a link that should help http://appliancehelponline.com/washerdoorseal.html

Dishwasher is leaking in front onto floor. Water level during washing seems too high. Float is not obstructed by any object. What can I do next?


if it seems to be coming from the front it may be the rubber door seal they are not to expensive and not very hard to change if it is leaking under machine it may be the seal that sits on top of motor if water is leaking around motor the seal in the bottom of the washer is damaged

Hello there:
Here is a few tips that might help you out
Hope that they are very helpful for you
Best regards Mike
Washing machine is leaking Washing machine leaks are very common. There are many places a washing machine can leak from although most leaks come from the same few places. The most common cause for a leaking washing machine is the door seal. Door seals often get holes in them and water leaks down the inside of the washing machine which then runs out under the front. Water leaking down the front of the washing machine from the door can be caused by a worn door seal (the flange part that the door glass presses against when closed) or something trapped between the door seal and the door glass which breaks the seal. If the door seal doesn't look worn, or it's too young to be worn, then try cleaning the door seal's flange and the door glass on the inside of the door. Bits of cotton, un dissolved washing machine detergent etc can cause a leak.
Soap dispenser leaks
The next most common cause of a leaking washing machine is the soap dispenser. Leaking water from a soap dispenser is often caused by a blockage, or water pressure that is simply too high. Despite seeing many leaking soap dispensers, I've never seen a soap drawer with a seal, they just rely on water not getting to the front which is not really good enough. Some Hoover soap dispensers in particular, are renowned for leaking, and over the years Hoover have had to introduce modified soap dispensers twice.
Some washing machines, can flood water out of the soap dispenser when a hose gets blocked (usually with un dissolved soap powder) Indesit, and Candy, as well as some of the later Hoover washing machines suffered from this design flaw. The hose where the water is flushed down, was right at the front of the soap dispenser on these washing machines and the hose wasn't wide enough. Un dissolved powder from a tablet or lumps of detergent through poor hot water pressure can block this hose solid. (Note: water flooding out of the front of a washing machine's soap dispenser can also be an indication of overfilling or a partial pump blockage if it does it when spinning)
Finally, black gunge in the top of the soap dispenser can cause water to spray towards the front and leak. Take out the soap dispenser drawer and look at the roof of the soap dispenser. If it's covered in black gunge, blocking some of the water holes, it could be causing problems. In extreme cases I've had to replace the dispenser.
Tips for finding a leak on a washing machine
  • If you have a leaking washing machine, and you can't see where it's coming from, shove some newspaper underneath the washing machine. The slightest drop will give a clue where the water is leaking from. Pull the sheet out regularly to check for water leaks.
  • Water can run round things and drip onto other parts. Be careful with your diagnosis, as water dripping from a hose at the bottom could actually be leaking from somewhere else higher up.
  • Leaks usually leave marks, so it's possible to see something is leaking even without witnessing it. The soap suds that come out with the leaking water leave white trails. Rust is a good indicator of a water leak too. However, if you have had a previous leak cured, the "evidence" of a leak may still be present so be sure you don't blame a part that was repaired in the past.
  • If the washing machine leaks only at the end of the wash, when water is being pumped out. Make sure water isn't backing up and cascading over the top of a blocked drain pipe in the plumbing.
  • WARNING: Don't get electrocuted trying to witness a leak. It's dangerous running the washing machine with the top or back off.
