Question about AEG Lavamat 72640 Front Load Washer
Something (probably a plastic obeject,comb, ...) has left the drum and found its way into the interior part of the machine. Now giving all types of sounds when washing/spinning. Doen't seem to do any seroius harm, but would like to remove it. Haven't opened the machine yet, but how do I in the aesiest way get open the interir parts of the washer?
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.

Sounds like the main drum bearings have failed.
At this age , I don't think this is an economical repair to undertake.
Better to replace with a new one.

The lock is rubbish on this machine but as a temporary measure you can feed a string down behind the door lock from the top and out the bottom. Then yank it to the left to open the lock. It will take a few tries but you get the hang of it!
We got sick of this so ordered a new lock off the net. I basically had to break the old mechanism to fit the new one because the door layers were so strongly glued together. Now fitted, the lock works perfectly but the machine thinks the door's open the whole time! Next step is either new door or new machine. Great.
