AEG Lavamat 60810 keeps stopping and displaying error E50 and some time E70. What is the problem and how do I fix it?

Family error code E50 means a problem with the washing motor. Family error code E70 means a problem with the NTC sensor. In my experience, E50 is most common fault in worn carbon brushes. But in any case family error code E50 is shown to the customer. In service mode could be: E51,52,53 and 54. The same applies to family E70 error code that will be displayed in service mode as error code E71 or E74.
E50 error code could be: motor winding, power board, tachymetric generator, motor relay on power board, wiring between motor and power board and wiring between tachymetric generator and electronic.
E70 error code could be: faulty NTC sensor, wrong position of NTC sensor or to much limescale on it and finaly wiring between NTC and electronic.

Electrolux front loader E50 error

Hello Friend, thank you for your post!

I see you are receiving an error code E50 on your Electrolux dishwasher. Is it possible that the code is missing characters? Could it possibly be an E50? May I please have your model number? The serial tag, which lists your model number, is typically located on the right side as you open the door. With this information I can further address the issue at hand. In the meantime, I suggest resetting your dishwasher. You can do this by flipping the household circuit breaker off for roughly ten minutes. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, could you please inform me of the new error code or if your dishwasher continues to display E50. Thank you - Z.

Front loader washing machine EWF1087 stopped half way and did not drain, E50 was displayed. Emergency emptying out the water was done and try to restart. Could not start, still displaying E50. What to do?

the error code E50 indicates that the motor has become overheated, you should give it an hour to cool then try running the washing machine again. I'm also including a link to pdf below with the common error codes for your brand of washer in case you have any other problems

Error message E50 shows when the machine is switch on.

Zanussi washing machines can sometimes display error code E50. As John Lewis washing machines are currently also made by Zanussi some John Lewis washing machines can also display error E50.

Unfortunately this is not a "proper" error code and is not listed in error code lists. It's part of the motor fault error code group and is apparently displayed to customers but when an engineer enters a special diagnostic display the "proper" error code will be displayed giving more information.

However, there are usually only two error codes beginning with E5 which are E51 and E52, which are "motor power triac short circuited" and "no signal from the motor tachometric generator" respectively.

So if you have E50 displayed on a Zanussi or John Lewis washing machine it looks like a problem with the motor. However, the E51 "motor power triac short circuited" could be a fault on one of the PC boards as triacs are usually on printed circuit boards. This could have blown due to a short circuit somewhere else (like the motor for example) - I would advise that an engineer is required if you can't see anything obvious with the motor.

Error code E50, what does this mean? We select programme, all the lights are on, we press start and E50 appears. What does this mean?

e50 is a motor error code.check the motor brushes are ok and check the insulation on the motor as this will give you an e50 error code.could also be a faulty wiring loom to the motor or a faulty main control pcb

E50 says the motor is overheated, they recomen you let it sit for 30min to clear.
It can be the motor power supply triac has got a short circuit or there could be no signal from the motor tachometric generator, which will uaually mean a pcb fault, or wiring to motor or even the motor. hope this helps

It was probably your washer that tripped the electric . e50 relates to the motor check the carbon brushes they will be worn out. hopefully with new brushes you will be back in action. the programme wont start with a fault on the motor

E50 code

i'm sure that e50/e51 is the insulation in the motor breaking down, in which case its usually new motor time i'm afraid.

hope this helps
