If the washer doesn't operate or make any noise when set on any cycle, or if it stops suddenly when it should continue onto the next cycle, it may not be receiving electrical power or, if the motor stopped mid-cycle, the machine's overload protector may have tripped. In this case, take out some of the articles to reduce the load and let the protector reset itself, then restart. Otherwise:
1) Be sure it is plugged in and turned on. If necessary, check the receptacle it's plugged into for power, using a working lamp, appliance, or voltage tester. Be sure the washer lid is closed completely.
2) If the receptacle seems dead, check the circuit breaker or fuse that serves that circuit.
3) Unplug the washer and check the power cord. If necessary, replace the cord if you feel qualified.
4) Open the lid and check the lid switch and the tab on the lid that it pushes against. Press and release the switch: if it doesn't click when you do this, it's probably broken. If you're experienced at home repair, you can remove the switch, test it, and replace it if needed; otherwise, call an appliance repair service person.
5) If the washer still doesn't work, the controls may be faulty. Call a service person.

Hi. I have a Bush A126q washing machine, which last night, suddenly stopped working on any programme and with the start/pause light blinking. I have checked the usual suspects, pump filter, too much...


All Machines theses days are digitally controlled, which means they do a self diagnostic test just before they start. If a fault is found they usually just stop with the light blinking. To determine the exact fault the appropriate Engineer for the machine will come along with his laptop and do his test to find where the fault is. However the most likely cause of your problem if the machine is 3 or more years old is the motor brushes. Remove the motor from the machine then remove one of the carbon brushes, if its about 3ml long its worn out.
make sure before removing the motor that the machine is disconnected from the Electrical and water supply, makes it a lot easier.

The tub won't drain and it spins very slowly. I've also noticed, over the last couple years, some oil/rust spots on my clothes. It is a top loading washer that is over 20 years old.

My machine is 3 years old and used on average four times a week. It not worked hard as we work in offices, so no heavy overalls. Last saturday it stoped half way thru a washer cycle. The door remained...


Easy, scrapped it and purchased an Indesit. The cost to repair AEG was more than buying a new machine. I would suggest to anyone reading this never invest buying AEG unless you have a live in washing machine engineer.

Stops mid-cycle


Hi SaviorSound,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumbr.

Your question is: You have a MDB7100AWB that has been working fine for the last 7 years. Now all of the sudden it will not complete a wash cycle in any mode (including auto clean). It consistantly stops at 85 on normal wash & at 65 on light wash and then clicks/buzzes about every 3 seconds, like it wants to continue - but never does. Any clues as to what to try? Is 7 years all I can expect to get?

Perhaps. Your d/w is stoping at the point where it should be turning on the 'heat dry' phase. This can be expensive. At this point I would be compairing the cost effectivness of repair verses replacement. Wish I had better news for you.

Feel free contact me again!
