    Hi ive just come on to tell you that after browsing some othr solutions to my soap drawer problem, I have just this minute switched the machine off, got a torch and a long wooden back scratcher and I basically just poked at anything that looked like soap gunk and there was a lot of stuff that looked like soap gunk! machine is now on and hey no water out the underneath of the drawer. very unscientific and I hope not dangerous but it has worked.

You may have blockage in pipe from drawer to tub but more likely the soap drawer is clogged. take it right out and clean thoroughly

Machine not taking powder

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

From your comment the water feed into the wash powder section of the dispenser tray is not working properly. Follow these instructions for first removing the dispenser and thoroughly cleaning and then clean all of the jets where the water is supposed to enter. Afterwards replace the dispenser;-0)
Try the following- in the second and third cases whilst looking from underneath!
  • Top catch- push down the lip/catch at the middle rear and pull the drawer out (that's how our Bosch one is removed)
  • release the catches underneath (our daughter's Indesit).You may have to push the bottom of the dispenser upwards.
  • lift upwards on the tray as it is coming out to clear the lip underneath. Again you may have to push the bottom of the dispenser upwards.
Pull out the dispenser drawer far enough to be able to just see the trays, select each part of the cycle in turn (briefly to save time) and check that water is entering the trays. If it isn't there is a fault with the water distribution and an engineer call is required ;-0(

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

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


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 Lavamat 72640 Front Load Washer

are the holes that spray out the water partially blocked? if so the water will spray out at every angle filling all the tray slots. try popping out the soap tray and cleaning above it with a stiff washing up brush and then reducing the water pressure by turning the tap off a bit.
