Find the drain pump (on most front loaders, it's at the bottom of the machine at the front - often with an access hatch).

Open it up (you may want to tip the machine backwards and put a basin underneath to catch the water - and be prepared to close up again if the basin gets full before the machine is fully drained). Check that the pump impeller isn't jammed with a collection of old coins.

My next move would usually be to set the machine going in a part of the cycle where the drain pump is supposed to be running, and to give the impeller a quick flip with my fingertips (taking great care to avoid injury). If the pump doesn't run until you flick it, but then starts, this is a sure sign that you need to replace the pump motor - a quick, cheap and easy fix.

If the pump starts by itself, the the problem is more likely to be one of blocked hoses.

If the pump won't start at all, either by itself or when you flick the impeller, you need to check whether the pump is getting electricity. Do this by disconnecting the machine from the mains, connecting a voltmeter across the two terminals on the pump, then switching back on and selecting a bit of the cycle where the pump is meant to run. If you see mains voltage, then again you want to change the pump motor. If you don't, then check all the associated wiring before starting to look at the main timer. Disconnect the power before removing the voltmeter connections.

Aeg lavamat error code c6


Found this on the following forum
http://www.ukwhitegoods.co.uk/forumsphpbb3/washing-machine-forum/aeg-lavamat-86741-error-t47666.html

C6 is caused by either a) defective mechanical pressure switch, b) defective pressure sensor or c) Defective wiring to either a or b.

You may want to just remove the hoses from the switch & sensor, noting what hose went where & blow down them to see if they are clear. If not, trace blockage & clear, refit hoses & test.

Before doing the above, please isolate the appliance from the mains electric supply.

I have changed the spark plugs on my 2005 C2 VTS and now when I start the car the engine warning light comes on and it beeps at me. Don't think I've done anything wrong, have checked everythin


try to recheck the spark plug distribution cable arrangement otherwise check your spark plug may be one of it is short or the gap is not proper.

I have a AEG oko-lavamat 75520 update. It stopped and the code C9 showes on the display. What does the code mean, and is this something I can fix my selfe?


Hi Mrs Willems from retired Englishman in SW France,

According to my list, AEG Lavamat 8*** Series Onwards C9 stands for 'tacho fault' (monitoring the motor speed) requiring a service engineer's attention I suggest. Sorry ;-0(

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Aeg sensorlogic 50700 first showed c2 message; we drained & cleaned filters 3 times; worked half cycle and now showing error message c3?


Error message C3 is most likely indicating the flood switch is triggered. This means water is leaking from under the sump. The C2 error is linked to drain problems which you cleared.

My AEG Lavamat 62810 keeps coming up with an error code E60. What is this?


On my AEG Lavamat 62810, when I turn on a wash cycle a motor (pump?) runs for 10–20 seconds then the machine switches off, with no error message. When this happened a few weeks agao running a drain cycle seemed to cure it; now the same thing happens on spin/drain/rinse cycles too. Any ideas?
