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.

Hi, I bought a new frontdoorgrip. Partnumber 0012932; for the Lavamat L16810. When mounting the screws I found out that they are too thin: I can push them easily into the holes. Do I need nuts behind...

No nuts. The screws fit into the plastic electric door mechanism which, after you took the screws out, will be hanging iside the machine. Either take the lid off to access or, easier but a bit fiddly, is to feel for it (with your left hand) through the rubber drum seal. With a bit of manipulation you will see the screw holes and door catch appear; line them up and replace screws and plastic facia.
I did the same thing and learned not to unscrew anything without knowing what it's there for!!!

I have a aeg lavamat turbo washing machine .when start it the water does not got to the drum ane water never stops simply running

You have a syphon - the waste pipe is probably too low and the end sits in water in the drain, meaning the water runs through the machine and out the waste.

Further to your prob with washer, I would be inclined to think that there is a foreign object in the drum.Hopefully it will find it's way in to the pump filter.I don't think it will cause a problem
Merry xmas.

Sounds like the main drum bearings have gone, if you hold the the drum and can feel up and movement or it sounds noisy or rough when you turn it by hand then it is definately bearings gone.
Unless you know what you are doing ,I would not recommend a D.I.Y. repair.

Probably the motor is broken. Or the tachometer is loose from the motor.
