AEG Lavamat 72640 Front Load Washer

My washing machine is going perfectly through all the cycles BUT takes all the water from the softener compartment. I need to add the washing powder manually while taking the water for the washing cycle and the same if I want to use softener, I add the softener when about 12 minutes left on the machine. I already had a technician out but wanted to talk to the aeg people first.

Are the holes that spray out the water partially blocked? if so the water will spray out at every angle filling all the tray slots. try popping out the soap tray and cleaning above it with a stiff washing up brush and then reducing the water pressure by turning the tap off a bit.

I have an AEG 72640. It is taking the fabric conditioner in the 2nd rinse instead of the last and the clothes are not coming out smelling of fabric conditioner. How can I solve this?

Hi. The problem will be one or more of the holes in the top of the soap dispensor (view with drawer out) will be partially blocked causing water to squirt into to one side and fill softener compartment. Dont overfill with softener stay below max level. Holes are not easy to unblock use large paper clip ,bent to allow you to poke holes clear.

Its actually the 72630 lavamat. Fabric softener remains in the drawer. Have tried cleaning the drawer but nothing is happening. Any ideas? Many thanks


Sorry- my wife is calling but here is a quick probable fix- the fabric softener drawer normally has some sort of cover, which needs to be removed, and underneath is a pipe/tube down which the softener and water mix siphons. This tube gets blocked by gunge- a mix of powder and softener. Ours does!
It has to be completely clear.

Must go.
Good luck.

Water remains in the softener tank after washing

Remove the little 'hat' in the softener tank and clean it to remove residue.

About mid cycle, a significant amount of water leaks out of the bottom. No error message comes up and the machine continues functioning. Machine is AEG oko lavamat 72640

Could the machine be overfilling due to a faulty pressure switch (controls the amount of water in the drum). Splits in the door seal or broken pipes?

Washing machine does not take fabric softner

Obstruction, please take the whole soap compartment out and do better job with old tooth brush on the compartment in the sink and the machine itself. Should do it unless you live in very cold environment.
