brushes usually available on ebay,

if the drum rotates but does not spin, this could likely be brushes or component problem (i.e triac or relay) on control PCB. - the latter was the problem i had and this was easily spotted as a blackened track on the Relay on the pcb.

Brushes should be ~£5. - check the existing brushes first before buying them.

fitting is easy, BUT a word of warning..which you probably know anyway..
before meddling though in the machine, locate the large capacitor and with electical screwdriver and discharge all the terminals to earth first! - YOU MUST DO THIS TO AVOID ELECTRIC SHOCK!! - even if the machine is unplugged.

remove motor & undo the back plate to release old brushes.
clean of motor of any excess carbon dust, - this can eventually cause arching if not cleaned away.

reassemble and fit all plugs back.
THEN TAKE 5 MINUTES TO CHECK WHAT YOU HAVE DONE BEFORE SWITCHING ON. -
Do not rush anything - take your time.

SOURCE: Random red stains appearing on

possible you have some red clothing in the gap between the tub and drum - there is nothing in the machine to cause red stains
to check, remove rear half of cabinet, remove heater (held by 1 10mm nut which just loosen and prize out heater) you can then see into the gap between tub and drum. shine in a torch and rotate drum by hand to see if you can spot anything. disconnect from mains first

I had the same problem. My husband checked the carbon brushes attached to the motor and ran the machine on spin. The brushes were sparking so he assumed they were worn and replaced them and hey presto machine works fine now. The brushes cost 23.99 and were just bought from a local shop but can be bought online cheaper. Hope this helps solve your problem. Essex

AEG Lavamat 64809 error code E30


Lavamat?! Where in the *&%^ is this machine from? Yugoslavia! I'm guessing it will not allow water IN Because only the Spin (Centrifuge) cycle works?! So if that is so you need your water inlet valves replaced, there are Two. Even in machines named after a Bar of Soap!

THE DRUM ON MY MACHINE ISNT GOING AROUND AND IT'S NOT SPINNING


Is it old washing machine?
One problem could be belt. It could be dropped. If you hear motor spining noise, but drum isnt spining - this is it.

If you cant hear anything - motor carbong brushes..
If not - electronics problems (semistor or etc).

I need more info to help you better.

AEG Lavamat 16830 won't drain


The simplest way is to lay the washing machine on the right side so that you filter closer to the floor and from bottom of the washing machine is accessible drain pump. It can be fixed by three screws
or just turn pump counter clockwise and pull out.

Take away gum (the gum betwin pump and machin). Clean/take awway clothes and etc from inside... there can also be something in the gum... check it! and check the pump to.

Water not pumping out and therefore no spinning occurs


Hi, just solved the same problem with our aeg lavamat w 1020. Try checking the filter tray (or port) at the bottom left-hand corner of your machine. This was our problem and as soon as the blockage was removed the machine could be pumped out. It appears to be running OK now.
