Question about AEG Lavamat W1050 Front Load Washer

AEG lavamat w 1020

The soap does not dissolve completely from the dispenser, and water remains in the left part (where softener goes) after a complete cycle. After a cylce, we find a large clump of hardened detergent. We did not experience this problem before and use the recommended detergent . We have had to put the detergent in the dispenser, and pour a cup of water to make sure that it goes into the washer. I would also love to remove the dispenser and give it a good clean,. How do we solve the two problems?

    I cannot completely pull out the dispenser!?

  • mum21 Jun 13, 2008

    I have the same problem - I have pulled the dispenser out several times and cleaned it well. I have pulled up the round bit in the middle at the back and cleaned it and tested it with running water to see if the suction works. All fine when I test it, but doesn't work when back in the machine.

You can pull out the dispenser. Just apply a bit of pulling power and it comes out. When you get it out, you can pull off the middle section that has a small overflow dispenser bit - you'll know it when you see it - that is the clogged bit. You need a flexible thing to clean it - a curtain wire did it for me. Good luck.

Water in the Softerner compartment

The softener drawer cover is designed to siphon out most of the water that runs into the drawer so, when the wash is over, the drawer should always be nearly empty. Unclip and take out the detergent drawer, unclip the softener cover and fill the softener tray with water. Clip the softener cover back on and the water should run out immediately. If it doesn't then a small blockage in any of the 3 pipes in the cover can completely stop the siphon action. Cleaning them out is generally all that's needed.

Its actually the 72630 lavamat. Fabric softener remains in the drawer. Have tried cleaning the drawer but nothing is happening. Any ideas? Many thanks


Sorry- my wife is calling but here is a quick probable fix- the fabric softener drawer normally has some sort of cover, which needs to be removed, and underneath is a pipe/tube down which the softener and water mix siphons. This tube gets blocked by gunge- a mix of powder and softener. Ours does!
It has to be completely clear.

Must go.
Good luck.

Why does a lot of detergent remain in the soap dispenser after a washing cycle is complete

Was the dispenser cup wet when you added detergent?
Make sure the dispenser cup is dry before adding powdered detergent. If dispenser cup is wet, the detergent can clump.
Is the cycle incomplete?
If the previous cycle did not complete, the detergent can become caked in the dispenser cup if it is left sitting in the dishwasher.
Is the detergent old?
Older detergent exposed to air will clump and not dissolve well, which will cause the dispenser door to stick to the detergent. Replace detergent if necessary and store the detergent in a tightly closed container in a cool dry place.
Is the water temperature too low?
For best washing and drying results, water should be 120oF (49o C) as it enters the dishwasher.
Were items blocking the dispenser that kept it from opening?
Items blocking the detergent dispenser will keep it from opening. Make sure water action can reach the dispenser.
Detergent guidelines
  • Use automatic dishwashing detergent only.
  • Other detergents can produce excessive suds that can overflow out of the dishwasher and reduce washing performance.
  • Store tightly closed detergent in a cool, dry place.
  • Fresh automatic dishwasher detergent results in better cleaning.
  • Add detergents just before starting the cycle.
  • The amount of detergent to use depends on the hardness of your water and the type of detergent.
  • If you use too little, dishes won't be clean.
  • If you use too much in soft water, glassware will etch.
  • Suggested fill amounts are for standard powdered detergent. Amounts may vary if you use liquid or concentrated powdered detergent. Follow instructions on the package when using these detergents.
  • Water hardness can change over a period of time. Find out your water's hardness by asking your local water department, water softener company, or county extension agent.

Water remains in the softener tank after washing

Remove the little 'hat' in the softener tank and clean it to remove residue.

The softener container doesn't empty, remains full after the run

Not familiar with that model but usually the cause is the dispensor is clogged up. Remove and clean.

Washing machine does not take fabric softner

Obstruction, please take the whole soap compartment out and do better job with old tooth brush on the compartment in the sink and the machine itself. Should do it unless you live in very cold environment.

Aeg oko-lavamat 72630 - fabric softener won't run through. Have pulled out drawer and cleaned it well. Have unscrewed lid and tried to separate the dispensing area to wash out the perforated top lid ......

Don't know if this is still a problem for you but if it is, then the solution can be fairly simple!

The blockage (congealed comfort I think) is most likely in the down tube at the back of the drawer enclosure. First raise the machine onto 2 pieces of 4x2 timber or similar and pull off the door of the pump hosing filter (bottom right as you see it) remove the filter and place a shallow vessel under the housing to catch the ****.

Pull out the soap draw completely by giving it a sharp tug when it doesn't want to come any further.
Clean out visible gunge, then using a suitable tool (I've found a long radiator paint roller handle ideal), ease the bent portion of the tool around the back left corner into the down tube. Moving it around should now dislodge some or all of the ****. Remove the tool and replace the draw up to the red arrow the, using a kettle, poor hot water fairly rapidly into the soap dispenser. The water and **** should be flushed through to the pump filter housing. Repeat as necessary until the water runs clean, then replace filter and drawer and remove wooden blocks. Repeat Annually to avoid future problems. Works for me!

Water not pumping out and therefore no spinning occurs

Hi, just solved the same problem with our aeg lavamat w 1020. Try checking the filter tray (or port) at the bottom left-hand corner of your machine. This was our problem and as soon as the blockage was removed the machine could be pumped out. It appears to be running OK now.

AEG Lavamat 72640 Front Load Washer

are the holes that spray out the water partially blocked? if so the water will spray out at every angle filling all the tray slots. try popping out the soap tray and cleaning above it with a stiff washing up brush and then reducing the water pressure by turning the tap off a bit.
