Aeg 16830 washer dryer not drying!

As it says the thing isn't getting hot. I've cleared the condenser of all fluff but still no joy. No matter what its set to (when trying to dry clothes) it stops after some random time. At no time do I get any warm air at all.

What do I need to check please?

BTW I'm an electrical engineer so not too stupid (I hope...)

Thanks in advance

    If only it were that simple...
    Both elements are 100% and, as I've traced the cct, I can see 240v at the live side of the heating elements as soon as teh fann starts. However, it appears that its teh nutral being switched that actually completes the cct for the heaters and from what I can ascertain it isn't being switched in. I've checked the over heat trips and they are fine too.
    Any ideas???

Check the 240v coming in.
You may have tripped a breaker and one side of the 240v is working allowing some control but no heat.
Check also for a burned element and loose connection.

AEG Lavamat 16810


E10 is related to water flow and if it isn't due to the 3-way valve being defective there's another common point to check.
The back and side cover needs to be removed to get at the condenser that, over time, can fill with fluff and stop the hot air from circulating. It and its connecting pipes can be unclipped and cleaned out.

I have an AEG Electrolux 16830 - I get an error code E10 - pressing the start switch recommences the program and it completes as normal. How do I reset the machine so this does not happen. An engineer...


E10 indicates that the water inlet hose is squashed or kinked.

First check the filter for coins or other junks.
Make sure the drain hose isn't blocked, restricted or kinked.

Hope this helps.. Good luck! ;)

AEG Lavamat Washing Machine Issues


you need soda crystals or a good descaler/degreaser agent to clear out machine repeated washing on low temps will cause scummy build up in inner drum door seal area,causing smells and poor rinsing result,this could be why condenser dryer not working as needs clear passage for air and steam during dry phase.

Locating fluff filter on aeg washer/dryer . After using the dryer facility the following wash resulted in garment containing patched of fluff .presumably from previous drying task.Is there a fluff filter...


I have the same problem with mine. There isn't a fluff filter that you can get to easily. When the engineer came to fix something else he showed me this big tube thing inside the machine that had the inside coated with fluff. The machine wasn't very old and I only use the dryer for underwear (apparently towels make it much worse). So ... you'll have to get someone to dismantle the machine to get to the fluff. I was wondering if it is covered by the guarantee because it is ruining my washing.

Wd440 not drying. how does the fluff get emptied?


Because it is a washer dryer, there is no fluff filter to clean.
It is self cleaning, because the fluff is washed away by cold water entering the condenser and flushing the fluff away.
Trust this answers your query.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

My AEG Lavamat 16830 Washer Dryer does not heat up on the drying cycle. I comes on and after 15minutes the timer jumps to ) and the dryer stops. On opening the door the clothes have not been heated at all...


Had an identical problem with my 16830 washer dryer and noticed reading other posts that others have had this issue with 16810 units too. After reading posts about the 'condensor issue' causing clothes not to dry properly I got a socket set and took the back-half cover off the machine (11 screws/hex screws in all) to have a look. I then removed and cleaned out the accumulated fluff from the transparent plastic condensor unit. It didn't appear to have much fluff caught within it so I doubted that this would solve the issue.

Upon putting the unit back into situ I noticed that the temperature sensor in the large black flexible tube that connects the condensor to the drum had just one orange wire attached to it. I then noticed a second orange wire hanging loose nearby and putting two and two together figured that the loose wire had dropped off the sensor. Since the connector can't be rewired I resorted to carefully soldering the loose wire to the connector and ty-rapped both orange wires to the connector to prevent the wires working loose again. Once I had the connector back on the sensor both wires were pretty taut between the main wiring loom and the sensor and so I suspect that what had happened was that in normal use the wire had come adrift from the connector due to the drum rocking back and forth and pulling the wires against the loom - a design flaw I'd say.
To create more slack for the two wires in question I cut the ty-rap holding the main wiring loom to the side of the dryer and then re-fitted a new ty-rap in exactly the same place around all the wires in the main loom except for the two orange wires so that they remained free of the main loom to move as the drum rocks. With the wire back in place and everthing re-assembled the dryer heats up perfectly and counts down as it should.

I figured that with the sensor not operating the computer determined incorrectly that the air leaving the drum was too hot/dry as would be the case if the contents of the drum were completely dry and as a result the computer turned off and kept off the heater for the remainder of the drying cycle. I also concluded that as an energy saving feature - with the computer thinking the clothes are dry - the dryer speeds up the remaining drying time so that the drying cycle finishes sooner, hence why the counter completes sooner than it should and all with no error message.

Hope this is of help to others.

AEG Washer dryer will not complete cycle


I ended up trying the machine on a few different cycles all of which failed to complete. Finally tried a 'Drying' only cycle and it emptied out quite alot of water which was odd. It now seems fine. guessing it was a blockage and a certain amount of water was backed up in the machine??? any clarity welcome.
