Lavamat problems


Most likely, your washer's fill valve is leaking. You can probably find replacement valves. I found the AEG LAV1480 parts at several sites.

If your water pipes to the washer have shut-off valves where the hoses connect, turn the water to off after doing the wash. If they don't have shut off valves, have them installed. It's a cheap way to avoid floods when either the valve or the hoses fail. There are some high-end electronic shut-off valves that include a timer so you won't forget to turn off the water. Two simple 1/4 turn shut-off valve (one for hot, one for cold) are cheaper but you have to turn off the water after you finish the load.

To test the shut-off valves when in the closed position, disconnect the hoses from the washer and put a bucket under them. No water should flow into the bucket beyond the water that was initially in the hoses.

I hope this helps.

Hot water does not fill in the washer. The spicket has hot water.


There is an obstruction after the shut off to the hot water hose that feeds the washer. Shut off the hot water, disconnect the hot water hose from the washer, and hold the end in the washer tub. Open the hot water shut off. If now water comes out the problem is in the hose. Replace or clear obstruction. Make sure washer at hose end is in place before reconnecting to washer.

If how water flows, inspect the input hose connection to the washer. Some have a screen filter that my be clogged with sediment or other debris. Clean and try again.

If still no hot water, there is likely a problem with the hot water solenoid valve inside the washer itself. You'll have to remove and probably replace the valve or coil (or assembly).

No water going in


Hello mariel_black,

If you have good water pressure at the washer source valves I would shut both the Hot and Cold water source supply valves off then remove the water inlet hoses at the back of the washer and inspect the water inlet screens for sediment blockage.
The washer inlet screens look like this;

If the above items check OK reconnect washer supply hoses and turn on water supply valves. If we are talking about a FAV6800AW/FAV9800AW washer then I would go into Service Mode Board Output Test page 16 of the Service Manual and turn on the Hot and Cold water valves and see if the machine water inlet solenoids operate and release water into the wash tub. I will summarize how to get into Service Mode and perform the check of the Hot/Cold washer inlet solenoids.

Enter the Service Mode by pressing and holding the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or the display reads “00”

Press the Delicates key the display will read something like “ot” the lid will lock. Now press Spin Only key this will turn on the cold water valve, do you here water flow into the washer? Press the Spin Only key to shut the cold water valve off.

Now press Normal key, do you here water flow into the washer? Press the Normal key to shut the valve off or the off key to get out of Service Mode. If you don’t hear either Hot/Cold water inlet valve operate then you have a bad solenoid or loss of 120VAC applied to that solenoid valve and more troubleshooting may need to take place and possible replacement of the washer water inlet valve assembly. Post back if you have questions.

Water will not shut off.


1st: check to see if the hose that the water comes out when it drains is higher than the water level in the washer.

2nd: It could be the plastic line that is inside of the washer that determines the water level.

Check the hose at the back to see if it's higher first.

Let me know

When washer finishes there is a dripping of water inside unit


What has happened is you have sand in your water valve from your water. This pluggs the water valve and also sticks it open so when the water valve shuts of there is still a small trickle of water coming through the washer. Replace the water and it will fix the problem (no way of cleaning the inside of the valve.) Replace water valve.

Washer continues to fill after full, then spills all over floor until manual shut off


This is an indication of a pressure switch malfunction. Post back with your washer brand name and model number and I can tell you how to check it.
