Question about AEG Washing Machines
Hi After decades of faultless service, my OKO Lavamat 538 now can't cope with the start point of its anti-clockwise drum revolution, it has a kind of starting fit and bangs about. This is only during the wash cycles, and almost regardless of load size. Clockwise motion is fine. I paid the call out fee to a repair guy, but he had no idea. Is this fixable do you think, or should I just accept its days are over?

"After decades of faultless service.." The word decades should provide a clue. Appliances don't last forever.

A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
The service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

Zoobs, you could have something stuck under the agitator. The agitator will pull straight off. Grip it on each side and pull up hard, but don't hit yourself in the face. If that don't work, try slipping a belt under it and pull. Check for something caught under it. Another possibility could be the nylon suspension rod socket supports in the back. They will make a noise during agitation if they are dry. Put a little 3 in 1 oil to quite them down. Take the front panel off and check the pulley and belt, see if anything is out of whack. I also often find the motor support hitting the bottom panel during agitation making noise. Take the front panel off and observe during agitation. See if the support is striking the bottom. If so, just bend the bottom panel down. Catriver..post back.

I have had the same problem. If you switch the machine to off and then to cotton/linen 95, then press at the same time prewash, soaking, qick wash and stain buttons for 10 seconds switch it off. When I switched it on it worked.
