Hi Ann,

Aww the German washer, one of the best in my opinion. Many of my customers who own them call them "eggs" ha ha !


I think the outlet you`ve brought into question is where you`ll find the lint filter, down in the left corner below the main door just above the leveling legs. ( some have a small plastic "toe panel or kick plate" unless previously removed, you`ll need to remove that first )

If you pull the small hose out located there behind the toe panel ( you may need to turn the plug 1/4 turn to release it from the machine ) you`ll find it has a plug in it, remove the plug and drain any water sitting in the pump. It`s good to have a small shallow pan, some towels, sponges or a shop vac close by for this exercise. Then unscrew the insert counter clockwise and that is your filter/button trap all in the pump, but removable.

This should answer your question, if not let me know how I can assist you further.

If so please provide a positive rating or one you according to it`s helpfulness.

Thank you for visiting "fixya" for your AEG washer inquiries. A very good washer I`ll say again.

good luck

Where is the filter for die AEG lavamat 538 washing machine and how do you clean it?


The only filter/screen I am familiar with is the one in the hoses the supply hot and cold water to your machine. They should be checked once in a while but I have never found much in them.

However, the manual for your machine is located here:
AEG OKO LAVAMAT 538 Operating Instructions Manual

I need to replace the water pump og AEG Lavamat 74620 (1998)

So do it. there are two. one to recycle and one to exhaust. they are close to each other in the front bottom left hand corner of the casing below the drum and behind the lower front panel that contains the filter and drain. though it's far easier to get at them by removing the thing from situ and taking the back off.

I lost the manual and i dont know the various programs

I've downloaded manuals for 2 washing machines and a DVD player from manufacturer's web sites. basically just put the in the details of the machine and you should be able to search for the manual. secondly if that's no good for you there is usually a phone number for services stuck to it some where, (it's on the bottom left hand side of mine) give them a call and ask if they can send you one. Hope this helps

What causes error c2 to show and how do i fix

I have the same problem and the manual says that it is a spin problem.
Check your outlet hose is not kinked or partially blocked. Also check the filter, bottom left at front, to ensure impeller spinning OK and no blockages.
After that, sorry but I'm lost as well.
Best of luck with a result.

Water not pumping out and therefore no spinning occurs

Hi, just solved the same problem with our aeg lavamat w 1020. Try checking the filter tray (or port) at the bottom left-hand corner of your machine. This was our problem and as soon as the blockage was removed the machine could be pumped out. It appears to be running OK now.

AEG Lavamat 88840 update

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.

Rate me pl.....if helped. Click on 'thanks for trying' if not helped, your prob will be back for someone else to solve.

Your door will not open if there is water still in the machine. Try "spin only". If this fails, get a bucket, remove your outlet tube from the wall drain, put into bucket. Wall plug off first. After all the water is drained try the door, do not force it.

Then check your outlet filter; the water does not go thru for there may be a block in your filter, or tube from the tub to drain area. Or finally in your pump. Dont forget to refix drain pipe in wall in exact position.

And rate me pl.
