    Hi can you please advise me, my washing machine will not spin, the pump appears ok, it empties, when a program is selected the pump runs, water flows in, then nothing, after a couple of minutes the pump runs again for about 10/15 seconds then stops, and continues this cycle if left on any program. PLEASE!! Mrs is going mad.

Don't know if this is still a problem for you but if it is, then the solution can be fairly simple!

The blockage (congealed comfort I think) is most likely in the down tube at the back of the drawer enclosure. First raise the machine onto 2 pieces of 4x2 timber or similar and pull off the door of the pump hosing filter (bottom right as you see it) remove the filter and place a shallow vessel under the housing to catch the ****.

Pull out the soap draw completely by giving it a sharp tug when it doesn't want to come any further.
Clean out visible gunge, then using a suitable tool (I've found a long radiator paint roller handle ideal), ease the bent portion of the tool around the back left corner into the down tube. Moving it around should now dislodge some or all of the ****. Remove the tool and replace the draw up to the red arrow the, using a kettle, poor hot water fairly rapidly into the soap dispenser. The water and **** should be flushed through to the pump filter housing. Repeat as necessary until the water runs clean, then replace filter and drawer and remove wooden blocks. Repeat Annually to avoid future problems. Works for me!

My AEG Lavamat W1010 will not put the final rinse through the fabric softener section of the dispenser drawer


Hi Cath.
You probably have a faulty Inlet Valve. This is the one which introduces the water through the Softener drawer (As you said)
The other one which seems OK flushes the detergent into the machine.
It may be a double inlet and only the rinse part is faulty.
Not a big job for a Technician
Good luck

Water in the Softerner compartment


The softener drawer cover is designed to siphon out most of the water that runs into the drawer so, when the wash is over, the drawer should always be nearly empty. Unclip and take out the detergent drawer, unclip the softener cover and fill the softener tray with water. Clip the softener cover back on and the water should run out immediately. If it doesn't then a small blockage in any of the 3 pipes in the cover can completely stop the siphon action. Cleaning them out is generally all that's needed.

My 12 year old AEG OKO LAVAMAT is making a grinding sound when it fills. It's fine at all other times. I've tried cleaning out the filter, and running it empty.


This is usually caused by the recycling pump running empty whilst the washing is still soaking up the initial fill water. as the water begins to soak the clothes it then starts to pass through the drum into the pump and the whole thing quietens down. running empty will not work. to test this theory try opening the drawer very slightly and filling it manually with a hose before starting the machine, (ONLY TO THE NORMAL LEVEL) and see if the noise is still as bad.

I have an AEG 72640. It is taking the fabric conditioner in the 2nd rinse instead of the last and the clothes are not coming out smelling of fabric conditioner. How can I solve this?


Hi. The problem will be one or more of the holes in the top of the soap dispensor (view with drawer out) will be partially blocked causing water to squirt into to one side and fill softener compartment. Dont overfill with softener stay below max level. Holes are not easy to unblock use large paper clip ,bent to allow you to poke holes clear.

Its actually the 72630 lavamat. Fabric softener remains in the drawer. Have tried cleaning the drawer but nothing is happening. Any ideas? Many thanks


Hi,

Sorry- my wife is calling but here is a quick probable fix- the fabric softener drawer normally has some sort of cover, which needs to be removed, and underneath is a pipe/tube down which the softener and water mix siphons. This tube gets blocked by gunge- a mix of powder and softener. Ours does!
It has to be completely clear.

Must go.
Good luck.

AEG OKO LAVAMAT 72630 is showing E20. what does it mean?


Error code E-20 means drain problem. It means that the machine is not draining water correctly. Check the drain hose, to see if it is kinked or folded over. It could also be that the drain pump or drain hose are clogged. Drain the pump (check behind the little panel at the bottom right of the machine), first draining via the small emergency drain hose if you want to avoid a large puddle.
Also get the fluff filter removed and checked.If the filter is clogged then it will not let the water to get drained. The fluff filter is behind the little trapdoor below and to the right of the drum on the front of the machine. Open the door, unscrew the filter, and pull it out. It will be covered in smelly slimy multi-coloured fluff, which you need to remove. When you remove the filter, there is a good chance that a fair bit of water will come out at the same time, so, if you can place a very low bowl or similar below the filter before you unscrew it it will save you from having to mop the floor.

Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Washing machine does not take fabric softner


Obstruction, please take the whole soap compartment out and do better job with old tooth brush on the compartment in the sink and the machine itself. Should do it unless you live in very cold environment.

AEG oko-lavamat 72630 update


It is a communication problem between the circuit boards inside the machine. It might be as simple as unplugging and replacing the wires, or you may indeed require a new circuit board.
