I had this problem too, and was able to fix it. There is a generic problem with AEG dishwashers of this type, caused by the bad solder joint of a relay on a circuit board. Solution:
1. Disconnect mains power then open dishwasher and remove the 8 or 10 screws that hold the inox plate onto the door.

2. Gently peel away the inox plate and you'll have access to a white plastic box at the top of the door where the pushbuttons are located.

3. Undo the 4 plastic clips on the sides of the white plastic box and you'll have access to an electronic circuit board. Note the order of the 6 or 7 wire connectors along the edge of the circuit board and then unplug them. The circuit board is now only held by a flat plexi connector. Leave it attached.

4. Gently turn the circuit board over and look at the solder joints. You should see one or more dodgy solder joints. Use a soldering iron and some extra solder to redo the joints.

5. Put it all back together in reverse order to above.

This is a known problem (that no one knows about).

AEG Favorite Compact 525. The pump runs continuously even when the on/off button is pressed. Tho only way to stop it is to turn the power off at the socket/plug. any ideas

This seems like the anti flood system (polystireen float / micro switch) at the base of the washer is triggered,\. This puts the washer in pump out mode and stops inlet of water via the inlet solinoid. Dry the water on the base and then check for any water leaks. (pipe leak)
