AEG Lavamat 72620 Error Code Cd

I have an AEG Lavamat 72620 which has stopped working. When I try to start a wash nothing happens for about 10 seconds and then lights start to flash and the Error Code Cd appears on the display. Could someone please tell me what this error code means and will it b expensive to fix?

    Thanks for your response. I found this solution on another web site and I checked my cold inlet pipe for any blockages and there were none and the water pressure was fine. Do you know for definite that "Cd" means poor or not water supply? ie. Are you a former AEG engineer or have you found this solution from the internet?

It doesn't pump or spin If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:

  • If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.

  • If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

It pumps, but doesn't spin If your washer pumps out the water but doesn't spin, check this-

The lid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't spin. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

A belt may be broken. Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.)

The clutch may be worn. It may use a clutch to come up to the proper spin speed. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the unit from spinning well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician.

The drive motor may be defective as your machine is using a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor.
It spins only with the lid closed For safety, washing machines are made so that they spin only with the lid closed. The lid switch prevents the spinning action when the lid is up.

    Hi!



    Some codes require a machine reset. The following works:
    Set selector switch to off
    Hold in "pre wash" and "soaking" buttons together
    Turn selector switch anti clock from "off" to "short spin"
    Turn selector switch clockwise to "energy saving"
    Machine should then be ready to use

    Befor you wash the door must be closed. If the door is confirmed to be physically closed, then it would be suspect that the switch attached for sensing the door is faulty.



    Thanks

Check out the carbon brushes in the motor. Theyre graphite blocks which transfer mains power to the copper segments of the motor -Theyre probably worn down. They're quite cheap parts and easy to replace. Power off, remove the back cover and locate the motor. May help if the machine is tilted at an angle or laid on its side. The brushes are at the other end of the motor from the drive pulley. The holders are plastic or bakelite and are generally held in with screws or plastic clips. Also, look at the copper segments they run on to check for burning or pitting. If the segments are burnt or damaged you need a replacement motor or a replacement armature (motor part) if you can source one. Occasionally may be a fault in the motor drive circuit board - in which case replacement of board only real option.
Some machines are fitted with an induction motor - this type of motor doesnt have brushes. Its a much heavier and more reliable type of device, but needs a component called a start capacitor to set it in motion. If the start capacitor is faulty the motor cant get the kick it needs to get going.
Check the tacho coil for breakages in the connections. The tacho coil is a small generator coil on the end of the motor which provides a voltage proportional to the speed of the motor. This voltage is fed back to the speed control module to enable the machine to check the rotation, direction and speed of the motor. sometimes the screw holding it on has just come undone and it has fallen off or the outer casing has come adrift.

As benimur pointed out CD means door lock defective. In some cases this may be caused by the main board. The first thing I would try is replacing the door lock. It is very inexpensive and relatively easier to replace. It solves the problem more often than not.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, error code "Cd" on most versions/models indicates that the door must be closed. If the door is confirmed to be physically closed, then it would be suspect that the switch sensing that indeed the door is closed is faulty (most likely). An alternative is the logic controller processing the different inputs and control all the functions of the washing machine is faulty (least likely). if the washing machine has been in used for some time, then the door would be one part that is often used/abused making the door lock sensor/switch the primary suspect.

If you are considering a DIY (do-it-yourself) repair, then the continuity of the said switch/sensor must be checked in open/close condition. In some instances, it could be not the switch/sensor but the door tab engaging/activating it.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy New Year.

A Cd error code means 'poor or no water pressure/supply'.

Check through the connections and Look for obstructions (lime or scale) stuck in the cold supply pipe!

The recommendation to get a new motor may be overkill and a very expensive option. Also on this site I found an alternative solution which was to just replace the motor brushes. This we did and it fixed the problem, coasting us just £20.15, rather than the £199 quoted for a new motor!
A reasonably competent person needs to remove the motor, identify the brushes and remove - just involves two hex-head screws. When new the brushes will be around 2.5cm long. They need to be around 1 - 1.5cm long to work. Alternatively the spring(s) may be sticking, preventing the brushes from being pushed against the rotor.

When calling suppliers to enquire as to availability I needed not just the product description, but also the PNC and serial numbers (located inside the front door), as types of brushes have varied during the production period. However the outlet I went to still did not have the correct bush - housings were different. The chap serviing very kindly swapped new brushes into the existing housings - this is something you could do yourself if you cannot get the exact same ones - just a little fiddly.

    On the bottom of the front end (below the round "window") there is a plastic cap. open it. you'll find there, beind the small pipe a "big" straight screw (should be made of white plastic as well), just turn it slowly (using a screwdriver) clockwise or the opposite and the front door will be opened.

Best take of the front lower panel and see if the is any leaks from inside the appliance.
as for leaking outside on the floor it can really only be the door seal, (tighten door clip up closer to pull door closer to seal)

    CD means door lock is defective. this may be due to the door catch broken or even the main board being defective.
    the cheapest option being the door lock.

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean(ref manual). There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

AEG Lavamat 72620 door does not open


It seems that your problem is with the lid switch and it should be replaced. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. You have to raise the top of the washer to get to the switch. Good luck!
