Question about Washing Machines
Thank you for your help. Your solution makes sense as I had the problem intermittently. Sometimes the wash wouldn't start and the error code cd would appear but I'd shut the door again and it would work. However it doesn't work at all now. I have one quick question. The door light is on green which means that it registers that the door is closed. Could the sensor still be faulty even when the door light is green? I would be very grateful for your answer.
Tahnks again and Happy New Year.
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".
To your specific question, no. However, on most models, there would be 2 door switches. Might it be then that the other switch (if present) would be causing the failure of operation. There are even versions that has a relay on the doorlock itself. Incidentally, often, there would be a tech sheet at one of the of the panels. The tech sheet would contain error codes and user action possible. In most instances, there would be a wiring diagram that would help you as long as you have access to a continuity tester or a DVM/VOM.
Since AEG/Lavamat models are not a common brand in my country, most that we have worked on are re-branded variations. But the basic operations would still be the same.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy New Year.
