Question about AEG Lavamat 72640 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

AEG Lavamat 74800: Door doesn't open, i.e. opens with long delay

After a trouble free period of almost two years, recently the washing machine developed the habit to keep the front loading door locked for at least 10 minutes after the washing cycle has finished. This wasn't the case before. The manual mentions such a problem IF the electricity fails, but this has not happened. The delayed opening of the door is a permanent problem.

We brought the machine from Germany to NZ and we have no customer service around. There is a minor difference in the voltage: 240 Volt in New Zealand, vs. 230 Volt in Germany, but the Hertz is exactly the same.

Any suggestions how to fix this problem? May be someone could explain how the door lock operates and which conditions could cause this problem (after it was fine for almost 2 years).

Thanks!

AEG Lavamat 74800: Door doesn't open, i.e. opens w - untitled2-rq2y3fnvghvfrpvxa33jafnd-1-0.jpg When the washing programme is started by pressing the START/PAUSE button, the bi-metal PTC (contacts 3-5) is powered by the triac on the PCB (J6-2 connector): after 2 - 4 seconds, this closes the switch (5-4) which powers the electrical components of the appliance (only if the door is closed).
The door interlock prevents aperture of the door while the appliance is in operation.
At the end of the washing programme, the PCB disconnects the interlock from the power supply, but the door remains locked for 1 to 2 minutes (PTC cooling time).
Certain models feature a pilot lamp which lights to indicate that the door is locked. This pilot lamp switches off when the door can be opened.

SOURCE: error E50 how can i

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error E50 indicates motor fault, you’ll have to check the brushes and wiring of the motor and check if it makes a hum sound, if it does and you can see that the motor is not working then it is the motor that should be replaced. If everything else appears to be working fine then it is the PCB that should be replaced. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Is the door lock button on, but the door not actually locked? Our door lock switch keeps going out. We have replaced it 4 times in the last 3 years.

This error code indicates that the door is not locking.
Is the washer door firmly shut?
The door must be completely closed for the washer to operate. The door may look as if it's closed, but it may not be latched. Open the door and firmly close it.
Were you washing a large load?
Before you close the washer door, check for laundry items sticking out beyond the door opening. Leave enough space in the washer to allow the clothes to freely tumble. Reduce your load size if needed.
fl_doorseal.jpg To remove the error display, press Pause/Cancel twice.

If Pause/Cancel does not work:
  1. Unplug the washer or disconnect the power for one minute.
  2. Plug in the washer or reconnect the power.
  3. Re-select the cycle and press Start.
NOTE: If the error remains on the display, and all of the other conditions above have been checked, call for service.

Mildew buildup on rubber at door opening


Hello mamie7,
You are not alone with your problem on your front load washing machine..seems they all suffer from this phenomenon. because in order to keep the water from leaking out the fornt door.. it has to be water tight.. and because it is water tight, it is also air tight so any water left in the gasket for any length of time will develop mold and get mildew there.. There are a few solutions ( no pun intended) floating around but I subscribe to a few basics.. One being .. wipe the gasket after a wash cycle and leave the door open to air dry any moisture that remains. The problem with this is that some housholds have small children and the washer then becomes a danger to them... So.. you can do a periodic wash cycle using a product called AFRESH ( in tablet form and sold at home depot etc) or you can try this product at http://www.smellywasher.com/ . Good luck.. hope this helps you..

Flashing Active Light and not taking fabric conditioner


1: The flashing wash light usually indicates a problem with the door latch while a flashing rinse/spin light usually indicates a problem with your inlet valve. 2: The cold water inlet has 2 independant outlets. The issue that you are describing indicates that one part of the cold water inlet is not opening to allow water to flow to the proper dispenser port.
