Aeg lavamat error code E22. Machine will not progress to spin cycle

Posted by on

  • tonyparsons Oct 27, 2008

    This should say E20 - not E22. The machine stops before the spin cyle in all programmes. The machine is quite new, but needless to say just over 12 months, so out of warranty. Isn't it always like that?

SOURCE: aeg lavamat error code E20.

This means that there is an issue with pumping water out from the machine.

Possible reasons:
-The hose for water outlet is bent
-The water outlet is more than 1metre above the bottom of the machine.
-The emptying pump is clogged up
-If connected to a waterlock, the waterlock may be clogged up.

If the emptying pump is clogged up, the solution is to empty the machine manually. First turn the machine off and disconnect the electricity. There is a small lid on the bottom right corner of the machine. Inside you will find a small hose. Ready a small box for collecting the water. Warning: The water may be hot. Allow the water some time to cool down. Remove the plug from the hose (screw it out at first, then pull the rest out). You may have to empty it in a couple of sessions. Just put the plug back in if the box gets full of water. repeat until no more water flows out. Put the plug back in. Now put a towel underneath the front of the machine for collecting water that flows out when you open the lid for the pump. You can open the lid of the emptying pump by turning it counter clockwise. It is right next to the small hose you just used. Pull the lid out, and remove what is clogging up the pump. Before you slide the lid back in, you should check that the pump goes around. You can do this with a pen and a flashlight. Use the pen to move the pump around. It is normal for it to move in "bursts" (that it's not revolving smoothly). Slide the lid back into the tracks on the inside of the housing of the pump, and close it. Now you may reconnect the electricity, and the machine should work._1923.jpg_1924.jpg

Aeg lavamat error code c6

Found this on the following forum

C6 is caused by either a) defective mechanical pressure switch, b) defective pressure sensor or c) Defective wiring to either a or b.

You may want to just remove the hoses from the switch & sensor, noting what hose went where & blow down them to see if they are clear. If not, trace blockage & clear, refit hoses & test.

Before doing the above, please isolate the appliance from the mains electric supply.

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!

My AEG Lavamat 62810 keeps coming up with an error code E60. What is this?

On my AEG Lavamat 62810, when I turn on a wash cycle a motor (pump?) runs for 10–20 seconds then the machine switches off, with no error message. When this happened a few weeks agao running a drain cycle seemed to cure it; now the same thing happens on spin/drain/rinse cycles too. Any ideas?
