Question about Washing Machines

Re My lavamat

Thanks, Faggly.
I can only describe the noise as grating, as if metal on metal.
It is evident in particular on rotating.

Hiya admin47 John...

unfortunately.. what you are describing is the drum bearing has very likely collapsed, this can be caused for a number of reasons..
1. life and general wear and tear. How old is the machine?
2. Uneven placement of an appliance, which puts extra strain on the bearings, especially when overloaded.
3.Expect to pay around £60 -110 inclusive of parts and labour if you in Uk.. and dependant on where you live!

Obvious question but do you know if there is an extended warranty on the parts... not labour...when you first purchased the appliance, sometimes worth double checking!

you have a coin or a hairclim or metal part of a zip that is stuck in the filter where the wings of the water pump rotates against it.

Open the filter and try to remove it. Unplug the power first.

Good luck

Bosch wfk 2800 drum makes a noise when turned around


When you rotate the drum by hand slowly does it feel bumpy and still make a noise? If so suspect the bearings on the drum to be the culprit. Hope this helps.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but FixYa cannot do that direct- members of the forum are just people from all over the world, probably working from home, and not representing any particular manufacturer ;-0)
???
Manual
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make model number) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount.
You could also try the manufacturer's web site direct ;-0)

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

My AEG Lavamat 52810 has become faulty. The machine pauses about ten times during the cycle and the lamp marked "door" blinks. When I press the start button, it stops blinking and the cycle...


Hi Richard from retired Englishman in SW France,

There is likely to be a problem with either the lid/door solenoid/lock or the 'lid/door closed' sensor becoming apparent with the extra movement of washing, requiring a service engineer's attention I suggest. Sorry ;-0(

My washing machine stops and shows C9...what's wrong??? (it's an aeg oko lavamat caresse) Who can help me?? cheers Jan


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

AEG Lavamat 'C9' decodes as 'tacho fault' i.e. something wrong with the motor/speed/sensing. Sorry but that looks like an engineer call is required;-0(

If this has clarified the situation and/or assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.

Half way through the cycle we get the E20 message. We drain the machine and check the filter. The rotating bit at the back of the filter keeps coming off. We put it back and then the machine works for one...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

The rotating bit at the back of the filter is the drain pump/motor ;-0)
Don't try to glue the impeller blades back on, believe me it won't work. There is only one cure- have the pump replaced!

How do i re set an EFO code on an AEG LAVAMAT


you just need to mop up the water inside the cabinet to allow the float switch in the base to reset.check there is nothing stopping the float returning to the floor. a small leak from the door seal can cause enough of a leak to trip it . clean the door glass and seal to stop this. or change the door seal.

Re: Lavamat 72630, 6 yrs old Very loud noise from drum movement, has increased over last ten washes. When machine is stopped, on rotating drum we note it is catching on something. Nothing rattling, don't...


Hiya admin47..... to be a litle more certain diagnosing your problem, please can you do the following.

1. with the washer empty.. ie the drum... please rotate the drum by hand at any speed you can get... without moving the drum sideways/backwards. Listen for any peculiar noises.

2. Then move the drum backwards at the bottom of the door ( dont force).. then let the drum housing go.. swinging by its own movement, again listen for any strange noises.

3. Do the same pushing the drum from the inside to the outer casing..again dont force.. let go listening again...

Please post me the results

Regards Faggly
