When I switch on my washing machine AEG Lavamat turbo 16800 it displays E40


HI Mike.
THIS IS ALL I COULD FIND OUT.
E40 relates to the door being left open when the programme is started, it maybe that the latch was not pushed over when the door was shut.
to solve the problem get another switch.
hope this helps you.

Door will not stay shut


There has to be some sort of spring on the door latch assembly that keeps the door closed. If broken or no tension the door will not latch and spring open. And when the door springs open, a safety switch shuts the machine off.

Frigidaire Front Load Washer Model LTF2140FS1. Put clothes in washer, fill detergent dispenser, close it, shut the door, set my cycle hit start then the door lock clicks, clicks again, panel shuts off....


Make sure that the switch for the door is closing properly at all times. If not, unit will not start up or will shut down while operating because the switch has opened.

Samsung sensor quick P801 can't close the door. The main front door can not be close easily. I take me 6 to 7 try to close it. Sometime I need to slap the door firmly. The Door seem to be close but just...


you should not be able to open or close the door with the washer ON. You must first shut off machine before closing the door, then turn the machine ON, this should lock the door closed. to open the door, you must shut the machine OFF, then the door should open easily. Follow the directions in the manual... you can Download the owners manual here, in your language of choice; Follow the link below. just copy and paste it into you browsers window.

Older maytag dryer: rewiring help


If it is a usual door switch, it is simply OPEN or CLOSED (the switch im talking about ... not the door.) Translation, it doesnt make any difference. When the wires are connected in the switch, the machine thinks the door is closed. When they are apart, the machine thinks the door is open.

Make sense?

(Maybe)

Two wires one switch it is a 'switch leg'

If I read this incorrectly, please tell me. (I answer the belt question all the time ... I usually remind people to be careful of the door switch ... )

Thanks for using FixYa.com

Fills on its own door open or closed


I would bet the water inlet valve is weeping. It may not seal shut every time. It could have a piece of rest stuck in it also. It's cheap and easy to replace. The part # AP3128776.

U 1 error message


U1 is a right cover open error. So either that cover is not closed all the way, the tab on the door itself is not hitting the sensor that detects if it is closed, the sensor itself isn't working properly and lastly it could be board malfunctions. Most times on this model it is either a broken tab on the door or it is not shutting correctly. The front door has to be completely shut before the right door will shut. If you are looking at the right dooor straight on the sensor is at the bottom left corner of the machine. There is a little **** in the plastic that is where the sensor is. There is a piece of plastic on a spring that is on a guide that slides back when "triggered" some times that can come off the guide.
Hope this helps.
