AEG condenser dryer - plastic bracket for contact brush

Hello, I'm new to this forum.

I have an AEG condenser dryer Lavathrem 5770. It didn't heat and the drum didn't turn, but I have replaced the belt - I bought the Service Manual from the internet to assist. I now have a new problem.

A plasic bracket near a brass brush at the top of the machine is missing.
The Service Manual doen't descirbe how it is mounted or what it does, and the service diagrams don't help.

What does the brass brush at the top of the machine do? Is it meant to make contact with the stainless steel strap which is insulated from the drum? If it is meant to make contact then I can try to make something, or if anyone knows the part number of the complete plastic assembly (from brush to metal cross piece) then I could order it. I'm just not sure what it does.

Thank You

The brush is a sensor to check for the dryness of the load(for a basic description) it should run on the track you have mentioned.

My aeg lavatherm 56600 acts strangely. The timingclock seems to go too fast, and the waterpump rund continously Even when floatchamber is completely empty. Heating works seemingly perfect, and sensor brush...


It looks like that is not correct Conductivity sensor (two brushes; wiring and electronic). I'd like to know if you replaced the both carbon brush (6), which makes contact with the drum shaft is situated in the protective housing (7) of the drum shaft and carbon brush 3b.

25316337-hf2jxxovvq5cn05mugly0fcq-5-0.jpg The last alarm code memorized can be displayed even if the appliance is in normal operating mode (e.g. while the drying
programme is being performed):
- Press button start/pause and first nearest button simultaneously for at least 5 seconds: the display shows the last alarm. The alarm sequence continues to flash as long as the two buttons are held down.
The appliance continues the cycle while the alarm codes are being displayed. If the appliance is in programme selection mode, the options previously selected are stored in memory.
However, your tumble dryer is smart and if something is wrong it should be displayed by the alarm codes.

Drier heats up in beginning of cycle but after that never heats up again during that same cycle.


Hello,

While you didn't say im suspecting it a gas heated dryer??

If so here is whats wrong with it;
The reason your gas heated dryer starts off heating ok,but a part way through the cycle it is no longer heating as it did when it started,is beacuse the coils that open the gas valve are getting hot and breaking down when they are warm. At start up of cycle the coils are cool,but when the dryer heats up as it runs the coils that are weak can not handle the heat and do not open the gas valve. Replacing the gas valve coils with fresh,strong ones will open the gas valve the entire duration of the drying cycle. All appliance manufactures use the same exact gas valve coils and label them with their unique part number. Having been in the service business i know they are all the same and the part number for the least expensive gas valve coils is 279834
They can be purchased at your local appliance parts store on online at
searspartsdirect.com
repairclinic.com
apwagner.com
apdepot.com
midwestapplianceparts.com

To replace the coils,remove bracket over them(dont worry about where it says dont grip thats for when dryer is plugged in) unplug them and install new ones,that bracket has notches in it and the coils have tabs that inter lock so they position them self exactly where they fit.

This is what the coils looks like

AEG Electrolux Lavatherm 57800: Push a program button, Machine starts for 3 - 5 seconds, Then stops and timer is on 0.


try cleaning the drum contact on the rear of the machine. It is a carbon brush that contacts the drum spindle. It can get covered in carbon from the brush.Remove the plastic cover containing the contact brush, clean out all carbon dust and lightly sand the drum spindle to remove any surface build-up and ensure a good electrical contact then reassemble.

How does tumble dryer work?


The heated air inside the dryer is not expelled but reused. The drum is contained inside a closed area. The heat is contained inside the dryer. No ducting to outside is needed. The moisture is removed from the heated air through a condenser before re-entering the drum. Sorta like a giant self-contained dehumidifier. As the water is removed from the clothes, it puddles up into a drain pan which periodically needs dumping. Fancier models pump out the water to standing drainpipes. This design saves energy.

Hello, My fairly new whirlpool gas dryer does not heat. I replaced the thermal fuse a month ago and the heating problem was resolved, now no heat again, thermal fuse was tested good. The igniter will turn...


Hello Friend, Your problem is very simple to fix. You're dryer needs a gas valve coil kit. To replace coils just remove front of dryer body and look below drum you will see the gas valve. The valve coils are located on top of valve (two little round black cylinders). It's simple, just remove the two screws from the little metal bracket that holds them down, unplug the wires from them and just lift them straight up off of the valve. Take notice that one has 3 wires and one has 2 wires. Just replace with new coils and plug wires back in and re-fasten metal bracket. Your dryer will run like new. Happy to help, Tim.

Condenser Dryer turns but no heat


Check with multi-meter for power on the heating element's tags (115/220V). If it does get power,you should replace the heating element. In case of no power- you should replace the thermostat. Good luck!
