Question about AEG Lavamat W1050 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Washing powder residues left in washing powder compartment.

The AEG 50400 machine we have has a selective powder compartment jet spray system, which isn't working effectively in that some of the water jets are not working ( I have cleaned all the jets). The user manual says for possible causes 1. Water tap not fully open..IT IS. 2. Inlet hose filter is blocked..IT ISN'T.3inlet valve filter is blocked..can't see and valve filter?? The pressure is 5 Bar and the water jets are not powerful but only just about sufficient to clear most (but not all) of the powder. I this a known defect with this machine and if so is there a work around please?

    Already checked out water supply filter as described.. All clear so not that.

    Sadly having suffered much female verbal abuse, (I am "supposedly" a mechanical engineer, I have instructed the local AEG supplier to come and fix it.. Yeah ok, it's going to cost about £200 I expect. But a chap can only stand so much!

    Thanks all

5 bar is a good pressure. worth while to check the valve filter as suggested. turn off water, remove hoses from machine. look down valve spigot and there is a mesh filter inset. remove with small pliers and clean

My aeg lavamat 73620 fills water in the wrong compartment. How do I take out the powder-dosing unit to clean it?


with all the machines ive had you pull it out and lift it up at the same time, then give it a good wash when you put it back you have it upright and slowly lower it as you push it in, don't try and force it.

7-years old Kitchenaid dishwasher does not flush out all detergent powder


This is a water flow problem. You need to check the spray bars to see if any food is stuck in the jets and also you need to check the pump to make sure that there is nothing in the sump or the impellors that could cause it to loose pressure.

My washing machine does not clean clothes properly and washing powder residue is left after wash on clothes I have Daewoo Dwd F1243


start a wash with a load and after he machine fills with water check to see if the drum rotates this is usually the problem if you get powder residue on wash with no drum action the powder does not disperse also check to see if the machine spins if it does check belt tension if not check belt tension and motor brushes

Softner is dispensed in Wash cycle


in the top of your soap draw compartment is a lever that switches the water jets over ( for instance on the main wash the jet arm is directed in the main wash compartment which will take away your main wash powder then it moves the jet are to the sofner compartment on the final rinse ) the jet arm somtimes jams and needs cleaning and the small holes above your draw compartments clog with lime build up the thing to do is take out your draw clean the inside at the top where the holes are and take the top off your machine there are two screws at the back top you will see the little ark on your soap draw it will have a return spring on it gently move it from side to side this will clear any obstuction make sure that it will spring back clean any line around the arm ( make sure you switch unplug your machine before you remove the top)

Machine not taking powder


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

From your comment the water feed into the wash powder section of the dispenser tray is not working properly. Follow these instructions for first removing the dispenser and thoroughly cleaning and then clean all of the jets where the water is supposed to enter. Afterwards replace the dispenser;-0)
-------------------------------------
Try the following- in the second and third cases whilst looking from underneath!
  • Top catch- push down the lip/catch at the middle rear and pull the drawer out (that's how our Bosch one is removed)
  • release the catches underneath (our daughter's Indesit).You may have to push the bottom of the dispenser upwards.
  • lift upwards on the tray as it is coming out to clear the lip underneath. Again you may have to push the bottom of the dispenser upwards.
Pull out the dispenser drawer far enough to be able to just see the trays, select each part of the cycle in turn (briefly to save time) and check that water is entering the trays. If it isn't there is a fault with the water distribution and an engineer call is required ;-0(

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

The washing powder is not going being taken


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Follow these instructions and then clean the jets where the 'wash' water is supposed to enter from the top of the dispenser compartment.
-------------------------------------
Remove the complete drawer. To do this you will have to do one of the following-
  • Top catch- push down the lip/catch at the middle rear and pull the drawer out (that's how our Bosch one is removed)
  • release the catches underneath (our daughter's Indesit) or
  • lift upwards on the tray as it is coming out to clear the lip underneath.
Clean the jets then ensure that all of the individual trays in the dispenser are absolutely clean and clear- especially the softener one which has probably a cover of some sort over it. Remove the cover/cap and ensure the pipe down which the softener siphons is clear- might save a problem later!
Replace the drawer but
far enough out to be able to just see the trays. Select wash and check that water is entering the tray. If it isn't there is a fault with the water distribution and an engineer call is required ;-0(

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

We have a bosch she4am dishwasher and just recently the unit doesn't rinse all the soap out of the glasses of the top rack and also a film is being left on the dishes. i have checked the top spinner and it...


check the top of the cabinet after the unit has started to wash the water droplets is the key. if you see water droplets on the very top all over then the unit circulation pump is working. If that checks out then check the jet dry compartment. here is a trick.
open the compartment door, fill compartment until it cant hold anymore liquid,close compartment door,lower and raise the door 3 times,open compartment door check to see if you fill with more jet dry,repeat this process untill it cant take anymore.
what this does is removes the air out of the compartment. this will last for about 10-12 washes. last thing is to turn your faucet water on until it is the hottest then start your machine. use cascade soap and no tablets. when you use tabletrs with jet dry the machine over suds, the rinse aid compartment or dispenser is vidal to drying,cleaning spots and film. hope this helps.
