Re: machine is locked

Have you tried simply unplugging the machine - that is if you can get to the plug. Or, you could always flip the circuit breaker off. Either way, leave it off for a minute or two, and that should give it time to forget what it was doing. Once you start it back up, it should unlock, unless it has some kind of static memory that survives power outages.

The access door will not open, it is showing the locked symbol in the window

Your problem is either one of the 2 cases below.

1. Door Locked Indicator...'Keyhole' symbol
The 'Keyhole' symbol will illuminate 2 seconds after you have
pressed the 'START/CANCEL' button and will remain lit
throughout the wash programme.
The 'Keyhole' symbol will be flashing at the end of the
programme to indicate that the door is still locked. When the
symbol goes off you will hear a bleep and the door can then
be opened.

2. If the machine has been child locked, deactivate this feature by pressing and holding in the 'child lock' button for 2 seconds.You will hear a beep and the child lock symbol will go out,allowing you to use the machine normally.

Aeg Lavamat 64840 programme stops at 1 minute to go. turning the machine off doesn't help and you can't open the door

The main PCB, before sending the door aperture signals, checks for the following conditions:
• The drum must be stationary (no signal from the tachymetric generator)
• The water level must not be higher than the lower edge of the door
• The temperature of the water must not be higher than 40º C.
Automatic release device
In the event of a power failure, or if the appliance is switched off using the ON/OFF switch, or if there is a
fault in the solenoid valve, the bi-metal PTC cools within a period of between 55 seconds and about 4
minutes (at a temperature of 65°C), thus releasing the door.

if after swiching off for longer than 5mins and the door lock does not unlock the lock must be faulty.

Machine won't start and clicks if turned on with door open

Ok, this is the fix:

No payload. Close the door. Press off, then press on. Then enter a program starting by selecting the fabric and the others as usual. Do not press start, instead press the slip button to advance the programme to the very last phase, ie drain and empty. Then press start. It will perform this operation with no load and pump out the “no water”. This part takes 5 minutes. After the 5 mins the programme will end and the machine will beep annoyingly, but the computer will be reset and you can clear the program and use the machine as normal.


I had the same problem. The stupid computer inside remembers the program whilst it’s off and unplugged. What has happened is you accidently pressed start and start again to pause it in very quick succession. This confuses the computer and it thinks that a program is in progress. This is why it wants to close the door. There is no problem with the latch (unless it is a separate problem). You have to let it play out a program to reset it, which is why you can play the very last “drain” segment.


Presumably there’s a way to reset the computer either by a secret button combo or shorting out two pins from the computer box. I don’t know. If someone knows this please tell me.

Good Luck!
