Re: AEG 40630 -top and middle lghit are flashing
This is caused by the Anti-Flood device at the base of the machiene being activated. This device detects water leaks and is a polystireene float / micro switch that puts the machiene in pump out mode only. You need to determine where the leak comes from (pipe or perforated hose pin hole or pipe clamp etc.) If you tilt the washer and some water comes out from the bottom it is a clear indication that there is a small leak.

Error "i30" means that water remains in base because leakage or overflow. In this case, in order to prevent flooding, drain pump running continuously.
When we talk about AEG dishwasher, drain pump works even the power is turned off (must be connected to the wall outlet, otherwise anti-flooding system will not work).
The noise what you heard during operation indicates that something is blocking the drain pump.
Remedy: you should first remove the water from the bottom of the dishwasher and determine leakage then check why the drain pump makes noise.
If you work around the dishwasher, you always take care that appliance must be disconnected from the power supply.
Start the wash programme
1. Check that when the dishes and cutlery are loaded in the dishwasher
the spray arms are free to rotate.
2. Open the water tap fully.
3. Shut the door.
4. Press the ON/OFF button. ON/OFF button indicator comes on. 5. Press the button for the programme required (see "Programme Table"). The programme indicator lights up. One or two lights will flash in the multi-display. During this time it is possible to reselect the programme. The selected washing programme begins after approx. 6 seconds. The current wash programme stage will always be shown in the multi-display.
3 If the top light and/or the middle light in the multi-display flash after
the programme has started please read the section "What to do, if...".
The washer has a drain motor in line with the outlet pipe. The motor must turn when in outlet mode. This motor has an impeler that turns at high speed to pump out water in the outlet mode. The motor could be faulty or the lelectrical push on connectors to the motor loose. One can remove the motor and coonect it directly to the mains voltage for a few seconds to check if it spins (also make sure that nothing is blocking the impeler from spinning).
The arrow straight line meens end of program. However the flashing lights do indicate an error codeas per the handbook. This could be the ati flood device (polystireen float / micro switch) at the bottom of the machiene indicating a water leak. This device puts the washer in pump out mode and nothing els works until the error has been rectified.
Have you checked that the cover for the water inlet at the top where it connects to the spray arm is attached? It could have worked loose. Just re-attach and your spray arm should "miraculously" start rotating again!!
Our AEG dishie also tripped the light regularly. Turned out there was a water leak by the motors and the cut off device wasn't working and when the water filled up too much it tripped. Move the dishie and if water 'sloshes' out the back, then you know the problem, or if not, take the side panels off so you can see underneath, if there is water at the bottom of the machine. Hope you find the problem.
