Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Dryer (part of washing machine) not working correctly

I have an AEG Lavamat Washer Dryer and whilst the washing machine cycle appears to work correctly this is not so with the tumble dryer part, it will work occasionally but more often than not it starts the action but then after say 10 minutes it will cease and the code E 10 shows. I cannot find my original handbook that came with the machine it is about 4 years old. I am nit sure about the model but it is a fully intregrated model and as I say a combined Washer/Dryer

Hoping this is something simple and I can fix myself and needless to say your assistance in guiding me would be most appreciative.

Yours

Washer dryers often have cold water valves with 3 separate solenoids. One for the main wash and rinses (which is clearly ok) and one for the condition rinse (to take the fabric conditioner down) which is probably ok too, and the 3rd one is for the dryer. It's possible this 3rd solenoid has failed.

Washer dryers need on a steady trickle of cold water running into the condenser chamber to convert the steam into water, which then gets pumped down the drain.

e10 means that there is a problem with the water supply.
a condenser dryer needs cold water to operate properly. the e10 code will appear if:
1. the water is turned off
2.the water pressure is too low.
3.the solenoid valve is open circuit
4.there is a problem with the pressure switch (least likely)

Cold valve is at the end of blue inlet pipe remove lid and you will see it.

f E10 is only appearing when trying to dry, the problem almost certainly is the condenser valve solenoid open circuit. The green solenoid on the inlet valve. Should read about 4000 ohms.

My money would be on the solenoid coil being open circuit. The coil can be canabalised from most valves although you may have to modify the connections. For simpler repairs - contact Zanussi and get the entire triple inlet water valve to swap out.

AEG Lavamat 64809 error code E30


Lavamat?! Where in the *&%^ is this machine from? Yugoslavia! I'm guessing it will not allow water IN Because only the Spin (Centrifuge) cycle works?! So if that is so you need your water inlet valves replaced, there are Two. Even in machines named after a Bar of Soap!
