Question about AEG Lavamat 72640 Front Load Washer

2 Answers

2 problems here with my AEG 72640

Machine 5 years old on at least once or twice every day.
1st problem - Gets stuck on 31 minutes for at least 20 mins.
2nd problem - When I reload a wash I have to wait at least 30 mins before it will start again.
Think it might be circuit board and have been quoted £90 for part but is it worth repairing and what if it isn't circuit board.

We had a similar problem(45mins) we were about to purchase a new one when by sheer luck i noticed the on/off socket(not plug) above worktop was buzzing, pulled machine out put in different socket and has been ok since. Try it, it could help.

My 72640 AEG washing machine continually leaks even though the filter cap is tightly in place. What could be the problem please? Kate Comins

you have a hole in the rubber boot seal and need to change it,also i've seen a buildup of detergent and hair stuck on the bottom side of the front door,when the door is closed the water was traveling down the pieces of hair and leaking through the bottom of the door,but if it's leaking under where the pump is and it's not the pump or hoses it's the boot the door and pull open the boot seal and run your fingers all around until you find the hole

About mid cycle, a significant amount of water leaks out of the bottom. No error message comes up and the machine continues functioning. Machine is AEG oko lavamat 72640

Could the machine be overfilling due to a faulty pressure switch (controls the amount of water in the drum). Splits in the door seal or broken pipes?

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 72640 Washing machine

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.

Bra wire stuck in AEG washing machine

Hello, to fix this, what you should do firstly, is remove the machine from it's normal position, and then get a handyman to take off the back cover (which is not recommended by the manufacturer) and get right into the guts of the machine. Once you have found and identified the drum, internally, then open the waterproof cover, and note where are the parts and screws go. Keep digging the inside up until you ahave reached the bra wire. Alternatively, if the wire is still visivly poking out of the small holes in the drum, pull the wire out with pliers. Good luck! PS- If this information was helpful, please rate me either solved, thanks for trying, etc. Thankyou! Daniel Ballantyne

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.
