Question about Washing Machines
Washing machine AEG Lavamat 62810 is stopping mid cycle. this happens at random points through cycle and seems to be caused by the motor trying to spin the drum too fast. Switching the machine off at the mains (often several times) can get the cycle to continue and finish.

possibly the motor brushes. check for continuity across the brushes but remove elec connections first.
brushes are easy to replace but you may find it easier to remove the motor. before replacing brushes, check condition of commutator as well

This error code (C3) 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.

inside the waasher there is a fill level valve i think its blocked up with "gunk" if you look inside the washer you should see a small pipe from the bottom of the drum going up to a round type of valve with lots of wires fitted to it at the top of the washer,,,pull the pipe off this valve and "blow hard" down through it,,any "gunk" should be pushed out and the washer should wook ok after that,,,if it dont change the valve!!!

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Probably a problem draining.
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Following are my complete and hopefully 'coverall' pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
