AEG Lavamat W 80-W 914 001 220 00

Drum will not rotate to either wash or spin-dry. Drive belt is still firmly in place, drum and motor rotate freely when spun by hand from rear. Pump still removes water. When machine is switched to final spin-dry position the pump operates, whilst 230V appears (open circuit ref. to earth) at two of the five wires in the plug to the motor and 60V, (or 80V? I forget) at two of the others. That's about as far as I want to dig without advice. Can you help please?

SOURCE: "howling" noise during spin cycle (still there after changing burned off belt)

Travioso, there was two service flashes out on this model concerning the seal and bearing which means they had an issue with this washer. The howling noise you are hearing is the bearing and will need the new designed triple seal and bearing kit. This should be covered under your warranty, I believe it is 5 years. The numbers for the service flashes are TDL-0048A-B. Call Maytag and inquire about these service flashes, these should be covered. Catriver.

The reason the machine is coming up with E20 when drying.
is that there is a blockage of fluff in the dryer air duct on the right hand side of the machine just below the fan unit.
the air that goes through this duct is heated and returns back to the tub to dry the clothes. because there is a blockage in this duct the fan pushes air up the pressure switch tubes and fools the machine in to thinking that there is too much water in the drum,
too remove this blockage you have to disconnect the power supply, remove the lid and remove the back panel, 4 screws at the bottom + 4 up top under the lid. plull the water pipe with the valve out of the way and pull back panel away.
you should now see the dryer condensor unit blocked up with fluff. remove this unit and clean with bottle brush.
replace and make sure hoses are done up tight. replace back panel and lid, try again on drying and things should be alot better, drying should be alot quicker as well.

Is it old washing machine?
One problem could be belt. It could be dropped. If you hear motor spining noise, but drum isnt spining - this is it.

If you cant hear anything - motor carbong brushes..
If not - electronics problems (semistor or etc).

I need more info to help you better.

On spin cycle drum going round but not spinning so clothes stay wet

Hi, if it doesn't spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:

If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.

If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Drum is making some really nasty banging then screaching sounds when entering high spin - any ideas??

sounds like main drum bearings not common but if the bearings are worn you get the banging noise and as it slackens the drive belt you get screeching noise as the belt slips.

Drum does not agitate water goes in and it just humms, no agitation or spin

The drive belt is broken or the motor's rotor is stuck. Open the door and rotate the drum manually. The drive belt is worn or broken if you can freely rotate the drum. The rotor is most probably stuck if you cannot turn the drum.

Visual check can be done by removing the back panel. Remove the screws holding it to the cabinet and pull it off. Replace the belt if it is worn or broken. Simply wrap it around the drive motor pulley and on one side of the drum pulley. Rotate the drum pulley in such a way that the belt completely wraps around it.

Try to free the rotor if it's stuck by lubricating it and forcibly turning it back and forth until it turns freely. To remove the motor, disconnect the motor wiring harness and ground wire from the terminals and remove the mounting bolt. Pull the motor out of the mounting slots. To reinstall or replace, simply slide it back into the mounting slots and secure it with the mounting bolt.

In some cases, the drum will not spin due to a broken drum pulley. Post it back if that is the case.

Rotate the drum by hand. If the drum spins to freely without much resistance then it is possible that the drive belt has come off. Its unusual but it can happen. Remove back panel and refit the drive belt carefully.
If the machine is older than 5 years its possible that the wash motor brushes need replacing. If this is the case then you need to call a technician to replace them.

AEG OKO-Lavamat 1271 VI Turbo (Washer Dryer) 7-8 years old intergrated front loaderSuddenly began clanking during the spin cycle. with no load works normally with a light load, sometimes works on some...

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.
