Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Hi. My AEG Lavomat Turbo 14580 washer/dryer won't fill and start. I did two load of washing yesterday with no issues. I then put on a third load, pressed start and walked away. 45 mins later I heard it beep so went to look and it was showing error E20 which my manual says means there is a problem with draining. However the machine hadn't even filled or started to move/agitate the clothes at all so I can't see how it's an issue with drainage if it never even got to a point that there was any water filling. The display and timer is working as it counts down the minutes but and it has full power but just fill or do anything. Any suggestions on how to fix this would be very appreciated. Thank you.

Sometimes things can get out of sync. Try unplugging the machine for a few hours to rest the code on the board.

SOURCE: wont work, flashes LR

rapoyner The "LR" error code means "locked rotor". It appears on the display after the machine has repeatedly tried to turn the motor. The cause of the problem could be the motor itself, the motor control board, the main control board or the wiring. If your washer is less then five years old most likely the parts are still under Maytag warranty. It has very sophisticated design and I wood recommend to call the Maytag authorized repair man even if the warranty is already expired. Gendos

SOURCE: Frigidaire front load washer (LTF600ES1) Error E20

holla, Im not showing a E20 code on the tech sheet. There is a E21. Water not draining fast enough. Try holding the start/pause and cancel key together for 3 seconds. The door lock, wash, rinse and final spin leds should light. Any error codes should be displayed when holding those keys. If you see a different error code, post it. If not, I would suspect a clogged pump...Catriver.

SOURCE: Maytag Performa washer Waterlevel/agitator problem

CHECK your stand pipe hasn't fell over (the one the drain hose goes to when emptying)If not,Either the pressure switch is broke or there is a hole or split in the pressure switch rubber hose.This switch stops the water when it reaches required level.

SOURCE: Washer problems

if it wont drain , check your lid switch, check out your motor coupler, if it will not agitate and spin, replace your motor coupler, if it agitates and dont spin, replace your lid switch.

alot of times the washer will drain but we hurriedly cut it off when we hear noise or the water is out but it never spinned and so the clothes are soapy wet...

It sounds like you have a defective lid switch. This is a typical symptom when the washer stops when it gets to the rinse cycle and won't drain. You can check by opening and closing the washer lid and listening for a "clicking" noise as the lid switch activates. The switch is located on the right hand side of the wash tub opening and is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a lid strike) through a small hole. You also attempt to use a small screwdriver and push down on the lid switch contact through the hole to see if the switch will make contact. Typically the switch either comes loose, the lid strike breaks off, or the switch breaks. If you diagnose the problem and it turns out to be the switch, you can use the following link for instructions on how to replace it:

Replacement parts can be found at Just type in your model number and your part can be found under the "Top & Cabinet" heading on the next page as item 11 (part #3949247). The lid strike can be found under the same heading as item number 20 (part #358684).

NOTE: You do not have to drain the wash tub to replace the lid switch. The switch repair does not require you to move the washer. Let the washer to the work. With the switch replaced, the washer should drain on its own by placing it on the SPIN cycle. You can also make a by-pass by using the old lid switch. With the old lid switch removed, simply cut the white plug off the end of the switch, leaving about an inch or two of wire (This is the connector that's attached to the SWITCH, NOT the timer!). Cut the middle wire flush and splice the two remaining wires. You now have a by-pass that you can connect to the timer plug to drain the washer. This will also enable you to use the washer until your part arrives. CAUTION: It is not recommended to leave the washer in this state, as the tub will no longer stop when the lid is opened. You will have to stop it by manually pushing the timer in, or wait until the timer completes the full wash cycle.

If you do not wish to order parts online, use the part numbers provided and take to your local applaince parts retailer. I hope you find this information helpful. Please post back if you have any questions, or require further assistance.

I have a aeg lavamat turbo washing machine .when start it the water does not got to the drum ane water never stops simply running

You have a syphon - the waste pipe is probably too low and the end sits in water in the drain, meaning the water runs through the machine and out the waste.

AEG LAVAMAT 12700 VI turbo washing machine doesn't drain

Hi, You have taken out the strainer of the washer front and cleaned it regularly haven't you?? If that's clear, it's probably just the waste line blocked. Try removing the waste pipe where it joins under the sink, put it in a bucket and see if the washer drains. It's probably full of sh"te. If that doesn't work, then I'm probably full of sh"te and you might need a new pump.
