Question about AEG Lavamat 88840 Front Load Washer
We have had our machine for 2 years and its recently started to show a fault C3 on the screen and had not drained or rinsed the clothes properly. We have cleaned the filter and it seems to be working ok now, but is leaking in the last 20 minutes of the cycle. The back of the machine is dry, the drain pipe is dry and there are no leaks on the back or sides of the machine. the water seems to be coming from the front left hand side underneath. Is there something there we should check? want to avoid getting an engineer out.
Open up the top; check to see that the inlet tubes are firmly connected to the dispenser; possible one might have come loose. Plug off the wall socket first.
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.

This means your water sensor has detected a leak. it will stop when the sensor is dry.
Try getting the water out of the trap door and letting the machine dry.
I would also unplug it for secirity reasons.
Basically your water pump is getting tired or the sensor is dirty. Try cleaning the sensor or else you may have to change the pump.
