You can check the solinoid valve which is working properly.

You have a bad fuse. Will probably have to have a repairman replace it. It is hard to get to

SOURCE: I have AEG lavatherm 5230


Welcome to FixYa.

On the AEG dryers there actually are fuses for the heating circuit, usually two.

If you remove the back cover you should find a couple of fuse links in series with each element. There are 2 fuses ( which look like resistors ) on the inside of the element about 20mm up. These will be the non reset-able thermal fuses.

Also when replacing that back cover it is crucial the seal be in good condition as this will render your efforts futile once you re-install the back panel be allowing air to move across the element in a manner it shouldn't.

I will also inform you to check for negative air pressure in a room/closet not allowing enough make-up air to flow across the heater/fuses. ( if it's in a room closed, make sure there is a vent in the door or some other air supply for make-up )

The other factor which causes these fuses to trip is poor venting and opening the door during operation.

I don't have a part number, but the fuses typically come in a kit with a new heater as well.

Let me know what you find or if you have any trouble understanding my post so I can clarify.

I'll try to provide further assistance should you need it in any manner I can.

Good luck.

Why won't my washer start a cycle? Start button LED just flashes. All other lights are steady. Door lock sounds like it engaged, but nothing happens.

There should be a way to enter the washing machine into service mode to view an error code. Check your user manual and then you should have your answer!

Kitchenaid kudi01ilwh2 won't start

By won't start do you mean that everything is set ok but when you press Start button then nothing happens.

In that case most likely the door is not sitting properly or the door latch or door switch is faulty causing the dishwasher to not start.

However, if nothing happens on the panel when you press buttons but power is there, then most likely the panel is faulty and can be replaced.

you can trace the parts in these diagrams.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Here are the instructions to (just) clear the 'test' depending on the date code:-

Press start/cancel until ALL LEDS are lit
Press both start/cancel AND on/off together until 'dOFF' is displayed

Date code 39 March 2005 to date code 42 June 2005
Press the cancel button and the machine should return to norma
Date code 43 July 2005 onwards
Press both start/cancel AND on/off TOGETHER with top left option button until 'dOFF' is displayed.

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

Maytag Dishwasher Doesn't Start

on a dishwasher an ohmmeter is almost useless. the best way to check is to look for voltage. at the door switch check for voltage to ground on both sides. if you have 120 on both sides of the switch then follow the wire over to the control board. if you have 120 going into the control board and nothing coming out of the control then you nood to start looking for a broken neutral. however the likelyhood that its the control panel may be a better idea especially if you are hitting buttons and nothing happens. try reseating any ribbon cables
