I acquired awhile ago a used AEG OKO LAVAMAT 6450 washing machine. At the time I did not need it b/c my old machine was working fine. Well recently I switched to the AEG and after a few washes, I noticed that the bolt at the back (a long bolt with a spring) had broken off. Now I do not know if the bolt was supposed to be removed when moving the machine or if it is supposed to stay on but I stopped using the machine just in case (the machine still works). I have two questions i) What is the bolt doing there (i noticed before that it screwed into the drum and I think the spring acted as a shock absorber) and was it supposed to be removed after moving? My next question, where can I find ENGLISH Installation and Operational instructions for this washer?Thanks.

Re: AEG OKO LAVAMAT - BROKEN BOLT - WHAT DOES IT DO?
The bolt you described is indeed a transit bolt and should be removed. I believe that the current UK agents for aeg are service force. Check their website for your nearest branch.

do google search for "user manual AEG oko lavamat 75620" on page 2 about 4th down you will see a pdf manual for your model ( it's the "update" model but they are virtually identical to use ) don't download straight away it's foreign but don't despair click the option Translate this page and you'll then download an english version of the standard commonly experienced when Nigerian or Ugandan ex govt ministers let you know, via email, of an opportunity to help them smuggle millions out of their respective countries. never-the-less you will be able to run your machine from it.
