Re: LAVAMAT 74600

Just a bit more on replacing the "coalbrushes" - I generally would call them motor brushes:

I have read a solution on this site which was to replace the motor - I was quoted £199 for a new motor and bought new brushes for just £20.15p, which fixed the problem!

A reasonably competent person needs to remove the motor, identify the brushes and remove - just involves two hex-head screws. When new the brushes will be around 2.5cm long. They need to be around 1 - 1.5cm long to work. Alternatively the spring(s) may be sticking, preventing the brushes from being pushed against the rotor.

When calling suppliers to enquire as to availability I needed not just the product description, but also the PNC and serial numbers (located inside the front door), as types of brushes have varied during the production period. However the outlet I went to still did not have the correct bush - housings were different. The chap serviing very kindly swapped new brushes into the existing housings - this is something you could do yourself if you cannot get the exact same ones - just a little fiddly.

Hope this helps!

I have a AEG oko-lavamat 75520 update. It stopped and the code C9 showes on the display. What does the code mean, and is this something I can fix my selfe?

Hi Mrs Willems from retired Englishman in SW France,

According to my list, AEG Lavamat 8*** Series Onwards C9 stands for 'tacho fault' (monitoring the motor speed) requiring a service engineer's attention I suggest. Sorry ;-0(

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

What means error code "C9" ? AEG Lavamat 76669


C9 Indicates Motor Fault. It seems that the Carbon Brushes have Worn out.

Replace it and more likely it would Fix the Problem.Once you replace that, you need to put the machine into Service Mode to Reset the Error.

Steps for Reset the Error Code

1. Press and Hold the Prewash and Soaking Buttons Together.
2. Whilst Holding them, Turn the Dial from Off one Click Anti Clockwise

Note - If problem persists, Check the motor plug for broken wires and check the state of the carbon brushes.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
