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

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.

untitled-rq2y3fnvghvfrpvxa33jafnd-5-1.jpg After turn and choose cycle by program switch, press the Start / Pause button otherwise the program will not start.
If you did everything right then the "Cd" should appear on the display, which means door lock failure.

green = The door can be opened
av = The door can not be opened at the moment
red = Door is open

AEG Lavamat 72620 door does not open


It seems that your problem is with the lid switch and it should be replaced. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. You have to raise the top of the washer to get to the switch. Good luck!
