Question about AEG Washing Machines

1 Answer

My aeg lavamat 73620 fills water in the wrong compartment. How do I take out the powder-dosing unit to clean it?

Water fills up the fabric-softener compartment when the machine is started, not the washing-power compartment. I have to flush down the powder manually, otherwise it stays and cloggs. I want to try take out the full box to clean it, but don't know how to get it out. There is no error message.

With all the machines ive had you pull it out and lift it up at the same time, then give it a good wash when you put it back you have it upright and slowly lower it as you push it in, don't try and force it.

you may have blockage in pipe from drawer to tub but more likely the soap drawer is clogged. take it right out and clean thoroughly

are the holes that spray out the water partially blocked? if so the water will spray out at every angle filling all the tray slots. try popping out the soap tray and cleaning above it with a stiff washing up brush and then reducing the water pressure by turning the tap off a bit.

Squeee, It's been more than a year since you posted this so I guess you must know the answer. It sounds like a Visit from an engineer(?) I've got exactly the same problem with a Servis Easilogic 1500 and would appreciate knowing what you had to do to resolve the issue.

SOURCE: bleach/fabric softener compartment

The detergent dispenser is located above the detergent drawer. A water pipe is connected to it and water entrance and distributed to drawer's cells (following the programmed cycle) by a lever's movement (part of the dispenser). The lever movement is controlled by two solenoids that received their power from the timer. By opening upper machine's cover you will have an access to the dispenser. Disconnect the power cable from the machine before moving to next test !!!! Look first that they are not any disconnected wires. Move manually dispenser's lever and see if water running to all cells (depend on your movement). In case it doesn't work properly remove the unit from the machine and try to clean it (I hope it will help, otherwise you should replace the unit). In case it works properly (manually) - you should test by a multi-tester solenoid's resistance. the one that doesn't have a resistance measurement should be replaced. Good luck !!

SOURCE: Fabric softener compartment problem.

I have this problem as well.. All washing machines manufactured nowadays are energy effficient, which means that they don't use as much water as the older models. This can result in a build-up of bacteria in the top part of the washing machine, which is clogging up the bit where the water comes through to flush the fabric conditioner into the drum. What I have to do every so often, is to take the top off the washing machine and clean out the layer of black slime that has built up, blocking the holes where the water goes into the washing machine. Another contributory factor is that the usual program used is a 40 degree wash, which is not hot enough to completely flush the machine through. Manufacturers recommend running a 90 degree wash once a month with just washing powder in iit, no clothes. Hope this is some help

Water in the Softerner compartment


The softener drawer cover is designed to siphon out most of the water that runs into the drawer so, when the wash is over, the drawer should always be nearly empty. Unclip and take out the detergent drawer, unclip the softener cover and fill the softener tray with water. Clip the softener cover back on and the water should run out immediately. If it doesn't then a small blockage in any of the 3 pipes in the cover can completely stop the siphon action. Cleaning them out is generally all that's needed.

I have an AEG 72640. It is taking the fabric conditioner in the 2nd rinse instead of the last and the clothes are not coming out smelling of fabric conditioner. How can I solve this?


Hi. The problem will be one or more of the holes in the top of the soap dispensor (view with drawer out) will be partially blocked causing water to squirt into to one side and fill softener compartment. Dont overfill with softener stay below max level. Holes are not easy to unblock use large paper clip ,bent to allow you to poke holes clear.

Its actually the 72630 lavamat. Fabric softener remains in the drawer. Have tried cleaning the drawer but nothing is happening. Any ideas? Many thanks


Hi,

Sorry- my wife is calling but here is a quick probable fix- the fabric softener drawer normally has some sort of cover, which needs to be removed, and underneath is a pipe/tube down which the softener and water mix siphons. This tube gets blocked by gunge- a mix of powder and softener. Ours does!
It has to be completely clear.

Must go.
Good luck.

Washing machine does not take fabric softner


Obstruction, please take the whole soap compartment out and do better job with old tooth brush on the compartment in the sink and the machine itself. Should do it unless you live in very cold environment.

Water in Fabric Softener Compartment


As for the softener compartment, powder tends to overflow and block the three drain holes. It needs removing and thoroughly cleaning out, i use cotton buds and lots of hot water.
