Hi there,
This means your water sensor has detected a leak. it will stop when the sensor is dry.
Try getting the water out of the trap door and letting the machine dry.

I would also unplug it for secirity reasons.

Basically your water pump is getting tired or the sensor is dirty. Try cleaning the sensor or else you may have to change the pump.

Good Luck!

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

According to my list for AEG Lavamat washers, 'C3' stands for 3 possible causes 1 'safety flood device operated' (I suspect it means that it has sensed some water in the bottom tray. Not an easy job to do but I would check for a leak underneath), 2 'pump fault' and 3 'module fault'. Sorry I can not be of more help ;-0(

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

Dear ladies and gentlemen, our problem is, that we have a full mashine stopp with e20 accuring on the led before the detenser enters the toumble. our mashine is an aeg 16809 e20 thanks for your fast reply


You've answered your own question. E20 is a draining failure. Blockage in the sump hose, pump, drain hose or faulty pump. Clear the blockage or replace the pump if faulty and you'll clear the fault.

How to remove drain pump on AEG 88840 washer?


Hi
Not really a fix this but may get you going for a while.
We have a AEG 12710 update with what sounds like the same problem,If you remove the filter you can see the pump impellor and with the power off you can spin this a bit with a screwdriver etc and then box it back up and it should spring back to life for a few weeks.This is what we are having to do every few weeks until i get a new pump sorted.
Hope this helps

Machine can't get rid of the water gives no drain message


The motor is burnt out. When it is cool it will pump water out, but as it heats up and the insulation on the windings break-down is short-circuits and stops.

your machine is draining too slowly. When it initiates a drain cycle, the water level switch is sensing the water level is still too high after 60 seconds so the computer1.gif stops and generates this fault code.

Here are the things to check;

* Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or inked.
* Check Wire Harness connectors to the Drain Pump, Pressure Switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
* Check/Clean Drain Pump Filter of foreign objects
* Check for Drain Pump Failure
* Check the Inlet Valve for proper shut off
* Check the Pressure switch for proper operation
